Dining at Swensen’s

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Swensen’s Delight

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Swensen’s

 

It’s been a week of Puasa already. That means I’ve been to 7 different places for my Sungkai. My latest visit was at Swensen’s at Sengkurong (oh, they have another branch at The Mall, Gadong).

The place was was very welcoming – the fairy lights above the dinner buffet, the friendly staff, the warm interior makes up an excellent first impression. This was the only place I’ve visited that had lesser number of people but that didn’t let the mood down for everyone in there.

A bit of highlight on the main course, the varieties were just enough to get a complete taste of each item. The tomato rice and salmon pasta took the cake among the savouries. A separate station for salad as well as Kueh Teow soup was situated on one side for those looking for ‘lighter’ meals.

The star of the buffet, however, was the desserts. Apart from the delicious assorted puddings and pastries, they also served waffles. A member of the staff was patiently waiting until you finish piling those items on your plate and ask for a scoop of ice-cream. Not just that, you could top your waffles with anything from chocolate sprinkles to cookies to chocolate syrups. It just took me back to my childhood when I could eat all the sweet things in the world without any care.

Speaking of sweet things, another attraction of Swensen’s were the drinks. The good news is they have 50% off on selected drinks (such as Milo Float) if you dine in with the Sungkai buffet! Also, their bestselling item on the menu is Cendol milkshake float (not part of the discount). That is definitely something worth trying.

For a reasonable $16.80 for adults and $12 for children, you can enjoy a scrumptuous meal that will satisfy your taste buds. So if you’re near Sengkurong or don’t mind the drive there, you should go and try the buffet. You won’t be disappointed.

Shabulicious-ing at Food Arena

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Shabulicious

 

A fan of shabu-shabu and you know there have been many restaurants that offer hot pot stuff. Shabulicious now have three branches – one at Batu Bersurat and the other at Delima. But hey, I have yet to try the other branch at Food Arena, Seri Q-Lap Mall, so it was the first time that I dined in at Shabulicious at Food Arena.

What can you expect? They provide different kinds of Set Meals (refer to poster) to your liking during the month of Ramadhan. I opted for the ala carte since I don’t really eat that much. But for those who choose to have ala carte, Shabulicious offer 10% discount only during Ramadhan. And guess what? You can also take advantage of BIBD promotion (up to 30% on Tuesdays). So there will be one more Tuesday left to enjoy the 30% discount should Hari Raya falls on a Tuesday. I could be wrong.

Visit their branches Shabulicious Delima Square and Shabulicious Restaurant, Batu Bersurat, Gadong and dial their hotlines: 233 8333 / 875 0076 (Delima) 245 2000 / 888 2100 (Batu Bersurat) and 223 2022 / 729 2577 Food Arena.

The Dream Team 
 

The Sungkai video promotion on Swensen’s

 

Hello, ladies and gentlemen.. We are now on the half way mark of Ramadhan and it has been a fruitful one indeed. The common thing I would be asked from my peers is what is the best place to break fast since this is part of my job – Sungkai outings for my clients.

The irony is that even though I don’t have as much clients as before but the workload has been incredible. One reason being is the recent collaboration that I have with @filterworksproductions which have been very encouraging. I know the young boys personally but they caught my attention after a series of skits they produced.

So yes, it didn’t take me long to decide to bring them as part of my Sungkai coverage to give more leverage to my clients and at the same time, providing the young talented team a good exposure to the public. After a few episodes of our Sungkai videos, we have been in touch with newer clients (outside the F&B industry) and that to me is progress and an eye opener that this combination can give more added value to a company.

So I would like to take this opportunity to thank A’aqiil, Zainal and Fecks of @filterworksproductions for allowing me to engage in your services. Mind you, I even have a response from a former client based in Singapore who expressed her compliments on the creativity used in our Sungkai videos.

A big shout out to the F& B companies that trust our new initiative – Excapade, Tandoor, Pondok Sari Wangi, Swensen’s, Modesto, Shabulicious, Bombay Palace, Kimchi Restaurant, Momo Restaurant, It’s a Grind (Citis Square) and 03 (Aiking). A big thank you to Snapfeed also for being part on some of the project. If you are interested to engaged in the special collaboration, do contact me at 8677773 or email me at ranoadidas gmail.com and you can also view all the Sungkai videos on their Youtube channel.

Sungkai at Star Lodge

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Sungkai-ing at Star Lodge 
 

 


The Pasta Station..

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Star Lodge by Momo Restaurant

 

 

What an amazing selection of food items at Star Lodge hosted by Momo Restaurant! From Japanese cuisine to grilled to local favourites, the Sungkai buffet was a treat to the visitors.

The funny thing was there were so many items to choose from that I didn’t know where to start at all. In the end, I decided to have Laksa as my appetizer. They also had Kimchi soup as well as a pasta station.

The first thing I had noticed once I parked was the grill station. So after the Laksa, I went on to get some ‘tongking’. So much flavour that I just wanted to eat just that. But then, there was the… Japanese section. Kitaro had set up their array of sushis and pancakes and of course, you can only expect the best from Kitaro.

The buffet line was interestingly labeled on leaf-shaped cloths and they consisted of biryani, egg noodles, salmon head, chicken etc. I especially loved the sambal eggs.

Don’t forget their special promotion using BIBD cards ranging from 10% to 30% discount. The 30% discount is only applicable every Thursday using any of BIBD Credit Card with a minimum spending of $50. So you have two more Thursday left to enjoy the 30% discount at Star Lodge (Momo Restaurant).

So if you’re interested in checking it out, do it! Make your reservations or just drive to Star Lodge at Jerudong. You can also follow their social media updates @momo.restaurant and @starlodgebrunei on instagram

Kata Digital

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Introducing Kata 
 


Check out the display area of the newly launched Kata Digital
 


Check out the items being released under the Kata Digital at AV Mobile – The Kata Phablet, Kata smartphone and Kata Box (android box)
 

Something new. Something different. The new Kata Digital smartphone/tablet has now made a way to the Brunei market. Now with many smartphones in the local market, the choices have become competitive and furthermore, it’s a price driven market with the current economic situation.

The local market are already familiar with other affordable brands such as Alcatel and Vivo. Now thanks to AV Mobile (under AV Audio & Video), they are the official distributor for Kata Digital and now they made it available to the Brunei market. For your info, Kata is a US brand and the brand is growing rapidly fast after being founded in 2009.

 


The Kata M2
 


The Kata i3
 

The two newly introduced models, the Kata M2 LTE and the Kata i3 LTE are both quite affordable (both below BND 270). Both have 4G capabilities and I believe that will be the standard in the coming years. So it’s great to know that Kata Digital are thinking ahead for the masses of the consumer market.

Specs for the Kata M2: It has a 1.3GHz Quad Core processor. A bigger display than the i3 model (5.5 inch). It operates using Android 5.1 Lollipop with 16GB storage + 1G ram. As for the camera, it’s 13MP rear and 8MP front. It also has a dual sim card slot and the battery capacity is 3000Ah. Yes, you can swap the battery too. The price of Kata M2 LTE is BND 268.

Specs for the Kata i3: It has the same processor as the M2 but smaller size in display 5 inch. It’s also a dual band (3G + 4G) and powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop with 16GB storage + 1G ram. The camera is the same for both front and rear just like the M2. It also has a dual SIM card. The downside is of course the battery which is only 2100mAh. For the smaller size of the smartphone and also the price tag of BND 238, it’s still a great deal to own.

Both M2 and the i3 have something in common that not many smartphones will have. It’s the wipe-out app which is the easiest-to-use power/memory/process saver I’ve ever seen. Just click on it and your phone’s efficiency will increase. It also has a built in VNP app called the Mega VPN which allows users access to even geo-restricted content. This is ideal when you are streaming on Netflix. Oh yea, they also have pre-install Netflix app inside the Kata smartphone devices. A very well thought idea.

 


I like the wipe-out feature and ideal for a high user like me
 


The Kata Phablet T4
 

Specs for the Kata T4. This is the phablet line from Kata and it’s a combo of a tablet and a phone. It was dubbed the “hippest phablet ever”. A lot of thought and research in the phablet to cater to the demands of the tech mature audience. The Kata T4 has a 8-inch screen and it’s easy to unbox and you can straight away play with it.

It’s quite light (400g) and has a 3G capability. Do expect a premium, matte finish on its design. The camera capabilities are not as strong as the smartphones – only 8MP rear and 5MP front. Then again you can still enjoy this tech savvy device without burning a hole in your pocket because it’s pretty affordable – BND 188.

Now you can enjoy the deals at AV mobile outlets – Mall Gadong, Yayasan, Times Square and Tutong Central Mall. Only for the month of Ramadan, for any Kata Digital item you buy, you will be given an AV membership card. Awesome deal!! Because normally to get the AV Advantage Membership card, you will need a minimum purchase of $100 in AV Mobile accessories or 8thAve/theshoebar or purchase of $300 of any mobile phones, PCs or notebooks. Otherwise it will cost $20 to sign up for a membership.

Awesome Monday

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Monday dilemma 
 


A must watch Episode (9): Game of Thrones.. Now I can’t wait for the finale.
 

Ah, this was the first that I was in many years that I had to struggle to flip through channels on a Monday morning. And on top of that, I was struggling to stay awake due to late night football (European Cup 2016). So what was showing live on Monday this morning? The NBA finals game 7, WWE’s Money In The Bank and Episode 9 of Game of Thrones. All showing on Kristal Astro..

Don’t worry, peeps!! No spoiler alerts especially for Game of Thrones and WWE’s Pay-Per-View event. Of course, my priority is still on Game of Thrones because of the higher value in terms of being spoiled with the era of social media. I’m glad I didn’t flip channel and focused the whole hour on the 9th episode of GOT and it was worth the watch. Many high and low moments but that’s how it is to make a story more compelling.

As for the Money In The Bank, I was slightly disappointed in the bookings. The fatal four way tag team match had good moments but poor execution where it made wrestlers feeling awkward because some of them missed the timings of the staged match. The match I missed was AJ Styles and John Cena because GOT was screening at the same time. Jason Rumpun said it was a great match though it started slowly. I skipped most of the matches as I was focusing on the NBA finale in between. The main event was above average and I am happy that Seth Rollins is back!! and he didn’t show any signs of injury throughout the whole match. Amazing feat!! Btw, Rollins is my favourite wrestler in WWE for the moment.

Game 7 of the NBA finals was much more interesting where defending champion Golden State Warriors choked after leading 3-1 in the final series, only to lose the finals to Cleveland Cavaliers 4-3. This is history in the making for Cleveland and it’s the King James show in the past few games. I have to applaud their resilience and tenacity to climb back from defeat and win their NBA championship. The Warriors will have reflect on their performance in the play-offs and now their 73-9 season record accounts to nothing.

All in all, it has been a great Monday morning and I still have pending work and a speech to deliver tonight.. So did you spend your Monday morning?

 


LeBron James finally win it for Cleveland Cavaliers
 


Seth Rollins was back in the game after months of being sideline through injury. I’m happy that he is fully fit now and he will make more impact on the WWE weak universe
 


Our supper last night at It’s A Grind (Citis Square) with Filterworks buddies. Apparently they have new snacks to cater for those who want to “lepak” late at night at the Citis Square outlet. It closes at 2:30am during Ramadhan. Do watch out for our promo video soon on IG and Facebook.
 


The new line of smartphones and tablet from Kata Digital. Interesting gadgets and they are quite affordable and cheaper than others in the market. A US product that are now available at AV Visual outlets (Mall, Times Square and Tutong). I shall blog more about this tomorrow.
 

  
 

SsangYong XLV 
 


Apart from the launch, SangYong Brunei is hosting a “My XLV Design” contest in which the winner could stand a chance of winning a Samsung S7 Edge
 


The Deluxe and the Standard specs of the newly launched SsangYong XLV, now available at SsangYong showroom at T.C.Y. Motors showroom at Kiarong
 

T.C.Y. Motors Sdn Bhd, sole distributor of SsangYong Motor in Brunei Darussalam, is proud to officially launch the SsangYong XLV. Widely considered to be an upgrade to the well received SsangYong Tivoli, the new SsangYong XLV boasts a uniquely dynamic style and several improvements to make it a strong contender for the most value-for-money compact SUV.

In addition to the power and safety features unique to SsangYong vehicles, the XLV offers superb riding comfort, quietness, a roomy interior, plentiful storage spaces as well as multiple seating variations for even greater storage space to match your required needs.

Continuing SsangYong’s play on words for its model monikers, the XLV takes its name from an acronym which stands for: eXciting Lifestyle Vehicle. As such, the XLV embodies more than just the essential qualities of an SUV. The storage space offered is among the best in its class and strives to transform the lifestyles of its users by giving them greater freedom of space.

Though it maintains the modern and elegant design identity of the Tivoli, the new SsangYong XLV also introduces design cues of its own for a more dynamic compact SUV appearance. This includes designs such as the dynamic barbell-type bumper which gives the XLV a uniquely robust look that continues the rhythmically flowing character line on either exterior body side of the XLV.

Playing host to 720 liters of cargo space, the XLV comes with a number of small storage spaces for easier compartmentalization. Customers can enjoy the roomier interior together with a choice of cloth seats, leather seats, and synthetic leather seats; the latter of which comes in a sporty red and black color pattern.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second-row seats provide more headroom than any other competing compact SUV models by being able to recline up to 32.5 degrees. This in effect guarantees maximum comfort for all back seat passengers even during the longest of road trips. A latch type folding system allows the back seats to fold all the way down for a total of 1,440 liters of cargo space.

Under the hood, the XLV is equipped with the well received Aisin six-speed automatic transmission which is recognized for its performance and efficiency. Being composed of class-leading 71.1 percent high-strength steel, the chassis of the XLV effectively provides greater safety for the driver and passengers by minimizing vehicle deformation in the event of a crash. For reassurance, ten major parts of the vehicle have been made with hot press formed advanced high-strength steel with a tensile strength of 1500 Mpa.

Additionally, the XLV comes with an option of seven airbags, including the knee airbag on the driver’s side. This in combination with an ESP (electronic stability program) system, ABS and LED daytime running lights ensure the highest level of safety.

The vehicle’s infotainment system is particularly noteworthy as it features a HDMI port and a six-speaker sound system which allows for a variety of multimedia to be played back on the large seven-inch reverse camera connected screen with precise clarity.

 


Top view
 


The dashboard of the SsangYong XLV
 

 

The SsangYong XLV is made to combat the heat thanks to its best in class air-conditioning system and ventilated driver seat. Its dual-zone, fully automatic air-conditioning system allows the driver to maintain an optimum in-vehicle temperature while the memory function allows up to three combinations of temperature and air-flow volume and direction to be stored, guaranteeing a pleasant driving experience.

Lastly, the XLV comes with the option of a two-tone roof for all seven colors. This permits customers to choose a color for the roof and rear roof spoiler that is different from the body of the vehicle, adding to a dynamic and urban style.

In conjunction with the upcoming SsangYong XLV Launching, SangYong Brunei is hosting a “My XLV Design” contest in which the winner could stand a chance of winning a Samsung S7 Edge. Like us on SsangYong Brunei Facebook fan page and follow us on @ssangyongbru IG, for more updates!

BBQ-ing at Kimchi Restaurant

Kimchi Restaurant 
 

 


Between 11am to 5:30pm, you can enjoy 15% discount on Kimchi’s takeaway

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Kimchi’s All-You-Can-Eat

 

Kimchi All-You-Can-Eat

$28.90 Adult | $14.90 Child

15% discount on takeaways (11am to 5:30pm)

Tel: 222 2233 | 712 2283

 

Who loves Korean food? Well, I definitely do. To our great happiness, Kimchi Restaurant at Regent Square is again having its Ramadhan Sungkai buffet. Priced at $28.90 for adults and $14.90 for children, it offers a list of all-you-can-eat items on the menu.

The place was bustling with people when I went there. But even though the staff looked extremely busy, they took care of each table and the food did not take long to arrive either. The side dishes actually arrived almost as soon as we were seated.

But the reason behind visiting Kimchi is of course for the BBQ. The BBQ selection was filled with assorted meat to seafood to vegetables to local favourites. This time also, I took my faithful Sungkai partner, Pranika. Although she doesn’t take beef, she had three different kinds of marinated chicken as well as lamb to grill. Sizzling on the grill, they made our mouths water. If you do not feel full with just meat, you can also order rice or noodles. And let’s not forget company of the crew of Filterworks Production who have been very supportive of my project during Ramadan. Thank you so much!! (Do watch their videos).

Among the desserts, I would recommend you to try something unique to Kimchi – the Patbingsu, which is something like a Korean ABC and of course, my personal favourite dessert of all Korean desserts in Brunei. Topped with sweet potatoes, jelly and red beans, it is truly a refreshing thing to have after a BBQ. If you’re not very adventurous, you can ask for ice-cream which they serve in a generous scoop.

If Kimchi is your next Sungkai stop, don’t forget to make a booking just to secure your seats.

There’s also a 15% discount on all takeaways form 11am to 5:30pm, only during the month of Ramadhan. So do take advantage of the offers Kimchi gives. You can also visit their Facebook Page for updates or follow their updates on @kimchibrunei on instagram.

Breaking fast at RBGCC

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

RBGCC Sungkai 
 

 


RBGCC is located after BEQ (Equestrian) simpang at Jerudong. Well, it’s not far from the Royal Polo and Riding Club. Just see this banner on the main road and you are almost there 😀
 

If you’re looking for a decent, quiet place without the hubbub of crowded Sungkai-ers, the Royal Brunei Golf and Country Club is the place for you. And yes, this is an unheard venue since the area is always dedicated for members of the RBGCC. So this is the first time it’s open to public for Sungkai (buffet) and I must say they are pretty impressive. Even though there weren’t a lot of people (probably because most aren’t aware of this), the staff were dutiful and attentive to us.

The restaurant itself gives a very classy ambiance, with comfortable and spacious setting. The items on the menu, although limited, make up in quality. Some of the items included nasi biryani, pineapple curry and steamed fish. Desserts consisted of assorted fresh fruit, fruit salad and kuih.

My sungkai buddies Pranika and Sharon liked the food and they were helping themselves to second rounds. Pranika enjoyed the biryani as she described it as “not too dry and not too moist – cooked with just the right amount of water”. Sharon had two favourites – the lamb, which was tender and the steamed fish (She ate almost half of the fish!). I particularly liked the cucur udang as it was flavourful and not too oily.

RBGCC, located at a quaint area in Jerudong is the best venue if you wish to spend quality time and have actual conversations while having a fulfilling meal with your family or significant others. It is priced at $15 for adults and $6 for children. But making a booking is recommended. So call them at 2611 582 or 261 2914 for bookings.

For your info, the RBGCC is just one simpang after the BEQ at Jerudong Polo Club. You won’t miss it as there will be a banner by the entrance of the simpang.
