Twice a month salary to benefit Brunei

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in lifestyle, Business, Social News

 


New salary scheme to be introduced for government servants in their pilot initiative for those under Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Finance by January 2018
 

I heard of the rumour a few weeks ago from a reliable source and yesterday’s briefing by Ministry of Finance confirmed that there will be a pilot initiative of twice-monthly salary payment starting January 2018. The first phase will be introduced to the officers and staffs under the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Finance.

The briefing took place at two venues at the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Finance led by Dato Paduka Ahmaddin bin Haji Abd Rahman, The Permanent Secretary (Policy and Investment) at the Ministry of Finance and Dayang Norliah binti Haji Kula, The Permanent Secretary (Performance) at the Ministry of Finance respectively.

The briefing discussed on the reasons on why the bi-monthly salary is being implemented. Firstly it is to enhance the effectiveness of officers’ and staff’s cash flow management when it comes to spending on their daily needs. This will encourage them to facilitate their spending plans. Secondly, it will help to sustain the commercial and economic activities happening in Brunei Darussalam. This will also help to increase the domestic spending and make the economy more resilient than before.

With the execution of the new initiative at the said ministries, this will enable the Treasury Department to assess and carry out feedback to ensure that the Computerised Payroll System and Daily Paid System are running smoothly.

Under the two ministries, the ones who will undergo the new system are officers and staff who hold permanent, contractual, monthly, open-vote and daily-paid status and also whose salaries are disbursed through the Treasury Department.

It was mentioned that those under the i-Ready Scheme and Capacity Buidling Centre will not be affected by the new initiative. Other exemptions are those under Service Pensions, Old Age Pension Allowance, Welfare Assistance and Allowance for the Disabled to name a few.

The financial institutions (banks and such) provide support to the initiative as they will divide into two payments of personal loans, housing loans, car purchasing loans and other loans which would mean that the salary deductions for loan payments would be applied twice a month.

New PEUGEOT 3008 – Advanced SUV

The new Peugeot 3008 has at last been unveiled. This long-awaited vehicle takes the C-SUV segment by storm, in a class of vehicles in full expansion across all regions of the globe. It takes on demanding customers looking for new and different experiences with a very strong hand. Whether by its spectacular latest-generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit, by its exceptionally inspired design, by its optimised architectural efficiency or by its high-tech equipment, the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV aims to assert itself from the off as a major player. It inaugurates for PEUGEOT a new SUV range for which it will be the worldwide emblem.

Last Friday saw the official launch of the new Peugeot 3008 at the Peugeot showroom at Kiarong. The attendees were in awe with the video presentation shown before unveiling the car. The Peugeot 3008 will be one of the sought SUVs in Brunei as it has a lot to offer with a very competitive price. You can now drive a Peugeot with advanced specs that all users will appreciate. It is no surprise why Peugeot 3008 was named Car of the Year.

Makes me one to own one too
 

Breath-taking interior design

Getting into the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV is to enter another world, surprising, original and oozing quality. A spectacular, almost futuristic dashboard immediately catches the eye. This coherent and highly technological ensemble is the latest generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, a novel concept that has rewritten the book on the car cockpit. Here, everything seems to be at the service of the pleasure and concentration of the driver in a pronouncedly high-tech niche.

The steering wheel is even more compact and has been redesigned with two flats to make it easier to grip and to afford the driver maximum visibility and legroom.

The large 8” touch-screen resembles a tablet installed in the centre of the dashboard and is equipped with capacitive technology for greater reactivity and practicality. It is accompanied by six elegant piano-key “toggle switches” – giving direct and permanent access to the main control functions: radio, climate control, navigation, vehicle parameters, telephone and mobile applications.

The heads-up instrument unit unveils in series production a high-resolution 12.3” screen with futuristic graphics. It can be completely configured and personalised, and brings together all that the driver could want in his field of view. The visual impact of each setting is highlighted by a series of animations and transitions which are a treat for the eyes.

This on-board experience is equally well served by the richness of the interior, actively contributing to the excellent sense of perceived quality and modernity felt in the cabin. Material choices are inspired and their appearance uncompromising. Some of the areas are less commonly found in cars, such as the dashboard inlay….it’s all very modern and warm.

Whatever angle it is approached from, whoever sees the new SUV PEUGEOT 3008 for the first time is struck by the feeling of top-quality execution and of a high level of perceived quality. This exterior looks makes for the most fashionable SUV on the market.

Getting up close and personal
 

A jubilant driving experience…

The reputation of the Lion brand in terms of driving experience is already well-established, the skill of the in-house development engineers is in repeatedly producing the most satisfying vehicles to drive, whatever their size. In the case of an SUV, the challenge is considerable: raised ride-height, high driving position, raised centre of gravity…In this class of vehicle, styling choices are often made to the detriment of driveability.

The new PEUGEOT 3008 is a true SUV, but above all it’s a PEUGEOT! And like any true SUV it has genuine off-road capability, thanks to the Advanced Grip Control and the Hill Assist Descent Control.

Permanent connectivity

With the Mirror Screen function, a Smartphone screen can be reproduced on the touch-screen to make best use of its applications. It is compatible with MirrorLink protocols (Android smartphones), Android Auto and Apple CarplayTM (iPhone 5 onwards). And with a simple touch of a button on the steering wheel, there is a remote voice recognition function through the smartphone (Android SVoice and Apple Siri). Without taking his eyes off the road, and in complete safety, new possibilities are opened up to the driver: make calls, choose music, read and send text messages, get route information…permanent connectivity in operation!

Supported by an arsenal of driver aids…

It is a joy to drive, a feeling amplified by the compact steering wheel, and the driver can make the most of the dynamic abilities of this SUV, especially thanks to the support of the numerous driver aids available to him. These latest generation ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) minimise any source of danger on the road through an arsenal of safety features:
– Active lane departure warning
– Driver attention warning
– Speed limit sign recognition and recommendation
– Cruise Control with speed limiter
– Visiopark

Made in France

The new PEUGEOT 3008 is produced in the Sochaux plant, and the French Trémery and Douvrin factories supply all the power-plants. It will therefore carry from the outset the “Origine France Garantie” label.

“Golden Steering Wheel” for Audi Q5

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in automative, lifestyle, Social News

 


The Audi Q5 has won the 2017 “Golden Steering Wheel” in the “Large SUV” category and it’s an important award for Audi in a competition renowned throughout Europe
 

The Audi Q5 has won the 2017 “Golden Steering Wheel” in the “Large SUV” category. Prior to the selection, readers of the German automotive trade magazine Auto Bild, its 20 European sister publications and the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag had determined nominations from the new cars presented in 2017. An international panel of experts crowned the winner from these nominations. Peter Mertens, AUDI AG Board Member for Technical Development, accepted the prize for the Audi Q5 on Tuesdayevening in Berlin.

A total of 42 models competed in five categories in this year’s “Golden Steering Wheel” contest. After a Europe-wide reader survey, 20 cars made the final round and were judged by the experts: race drivers, engineers, designers, connectivity specialists, frequent drivers, critics and, not least, the editors-in-chief of all European sister publications of Auto Bild. They tested the finalists and determined which would win the coveted trophy. The Audi Q5 won through against seven other competitors in the “Large SUV” category. “The expertise and broad cross-section of opinions represented by the jury panel, as well as its renown throughout Europe, are what make the prize so coveted within our industry. The 2017 “Golden Steering Wheel” for the new Audi Q5 shows we have produced a worthy successor to the successful first generation of this SUV model line. We are proud of this prize,” said Peter Mertens at the award ceremony at the Axel-Springer-Haus in Berlin.

The new Audi Q5 was launched at the start of the year. The second generation of the best-selling Audi has established several new standards in the B segment of premium SUVs. The best drag coefficient in the competition, consistent lightweight design and modern engines ensure high efficiency, as does the new quattro drive system with ultra technology. In addition, the new Audi Q5 offers a broad portfolio of new driver assist systems, modern infotainment and connectivity equipment, and air suspension with damper control.

DST launches iPhone 8/8 Plus Bundle Plans

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in gadget, Social News

 


The new iPhone 8 Plus now available at DST Airport Mall
 


Dk. Mas Wafiah Pg. Khairul Iskandar the first customer of the iPhone 8 Plus at DST Airport Mall

DST announced today the anticipated release of the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus bundle plans. The plans are launched exclusively at DST’s Airport Mall branch for a period of three days and will be available at all other branches except Rimba and Temburong branch starting Monday 6th November 2017.

The postpaid bundles on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus offers various monthly subscriptions and upfront payments. For example, an Apple iPhone 8 64GB with a $440 upfront payment is bundled with an B$85 monthly subscription for 24 months and customers will receive 9GB local data.

Check out the prices. Click to enlarge.
 

Rano’s thoughts: This morning I dropped by DST branch at the Airport Mall to check out the official launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus. We know that the prices will be competitive in the market and yes, DST is Apple’s certified carrier for Brunei market and you will be given a one-year warranty.

It’s a bit ironic that Brunei market is slower than our regional market where Singapore launched their their models in last month. The demand has not been as good as the iPhone X which was being launched today and the queue reminds me of the old days when the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 were released. Perhaps everyone is waiting for the iPhone X which will be launched worldwide.

Rumours has it that DST iPhone X will be likely launched during the DST Carnival – a fitting finale to the year 2017. I’m definitely eyeing on the iPhone X after not upgrading my phone for the past three years. I’m still using my iPhone 6 and with the new iPhone X, it will be worth the upgrade.

For now, you can enjoy DST’s plan and get yourself the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. You can get the iPhone 8 Plus 256GB for as low as $855 (depending on the contract). You can view the plans at iPhone.dst.com.bn for details.

I’m glad my friend Angel upgraded her phone from the 5s which is way older than my iPhone 6. So she definitely will feel the difference.

 

 


Great service by the DST staff on briefing customers on the new iPhone and their contract plans
