Kien Sing (Tan) Co. (KST) yesterday launched a Shell Helix Branded Workshop at their Madewa outlet. Apparently they have four outlets and the Madewa branch is the first of its outlet to be branded in to Shell Helix Workshop.
Did you know that the company has been in existence since 1960s? And they started off the business by selling bicycles in Bandar. They later relocated to Gadong, being the main outlet and the second one opened at Seri Complex specializing in car repairs and spare parts. Now they have four outlets and still going strong.
KST has a strong relationship with Brunei Shell Marketing Company since the 1980s and it’s no surprise that KST (Madewa) has transformed into a Shell Helix Branded Workshop. With their good track record and offering top notch quality service, BSM entrusted with their consistency and hence KST was chosen to partner with BSM to be a Shell Helix Branded Workshop.
The revamped workshop will also help to cater to the younger generation as most of their clienteles are the “aunties and uncles”. I quite like the overall feel of the workshop and with this collaboration, it will help to bring a better service to the customers.
During the opening remarks, Mr Hong Chian Kai, General Manager of KST, thanked BSM for their trust in the partnership. Also present was Pg Shamhary bin Pg Dato Hj Mustapha, Managing Director of BSM, Hjh Siti Kurshiah Hj Anuar, Head of Commercial, Hong Kim Seng and Lim Soo Lian, co-owners of KST.
In conjunction with the launch, KST is pleased to announce a three days free oil change promotion. With any purchase of Shell Helix lubricants and oil filters at their Madera outlet, customers are entitled to an oil change free of charge. Term and conditions apply. For more information, please contact 265 6722 or visit their outlet at Spg 618, Kim Sa Complex, Kg Madera, Jalan Tutong.
Congratulations to Kien Sing Tan Co. on the Shell Helix Branded Workshop.

A strong quote by Mr. Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Group – “With you, we can do it better” – during the launch of Bilster Technologies
The cutting ribbon ceremony with the management of Concepts Group and Bilster Technologies
In times of economic downturn, it doesn’t give us the excuse not to grow or not to find alternative measures. I’ve seen some posting self pity and whining messages and hoping for a miracle during bad economic times. This is not the case for Mr. Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer. During his welcoming remarks of the launch of Bilster Technologies, he shared that we have to be extra creative and strategic in our business direction in times of economic downturn in Brunei Darussalam.
“Tough times are for us to get tougher and not use the current climate as a negative block but rather an energising spring board for fresh direction. Bilster Technologies is a testament to the progress we want to see in Concepts Group as well as in the IT industry. With the addition of Bilster Technologies to the Concepts Group, it is directly in line with the government’s focus on the development of local SMES.
Yes, for your information, the two year old company Bilster Technologies is now under the direction of Concepts Group and this is a good strategy for Concepts Group as now they are offer more products than the usual ones you see at Concepts Computer. You will notice other brands such as Dell, HP, Canon and others being sold at Bilster Technologies.
The launch took place yesterday at Bilster Technologies at Citis Square. It was attended by the management’s families and friends, members of Wushu community, IFB, Fuzhou Shiyyi Association, business partners and members of the media.
Now Bilster Technologies have different range of holiday hampers for consumers. There is also offer on Dell products such as desktops, laptops and other products. You can follow them on Bilster Technologies Facebook Page.

Something unfamiliar territory that I’m gonna post about air-conditioner. Well, we normally take it for granted and I actually do too until my 20 year old air-con broke down on me. That’s when I started to scout for different brands of air-con for the convenience of my sleep 😀
One company that made me realised and more knowledgeable about air-con is AEC Sdn Bhd (supplier of Panasonic). They have been in Brunei Darussalam for decades and I will pass by their office as it’s located at the Beribi Industrial Area.
Today I’m gonna explain to you about Panasonic Single Split Air Conditioner that are being sold at certain shops. It has a function that will give you 15% faster cooling comfort with a touch of a button (iAuto). It also has a 2 star energy rating.
Once the room cools down, the iAuto function will provide constant cool air flow until it reaches a comfortable humidity. Hence, this model is very ideal for your room or living room.
It comes in different horse power from 1 HP to 3 HP. The price fro the 1.0 HP will be BND 324 while the biggest HP (3.0) will be priced at BND 927. The good thing is that Panasonic has Parts and Service Centre should anything go wrong with your air-con.
So if you are searching for one, check out the Panasonic Single Split Air Conditioner as there is a special promotion that ends on the 31st December 2016. You can refer the poster on the places to locate the said model.
