10 days ago, the media had the privilege to draw the 10 lucky winners for the grand draw of the Brunei Shell Marketing Co. Sdn Bhd (BSM) Win With Helix promotion and last night Masdi Wijaya Hj Md Akhir was the grand lucky winner of the new Volkswagen Tiguan 1.4 TSI.

This is the first time I believe that BSM have such a big promotion on their products and they had more than 25,000 entries from their loyal customers. Now that’s a lot of entries from a span of a few months and I believe it could have been more if every single customer submit his or her entry.

The second prize winner was Late bin Anam who himself a Tour Package for 2 person to Korea for 4 Days 3 Nights, inclusive of a 5 star hotel accommodation. The third place went to Hj Yahya bin Hj Tuah and he will have a chance to witness the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix package for 2 to Sepang in Malaysia for 4 Days 3 Nights.

Present during the Grand Draw is BSM Managing Director, Pg Shamhary Pg Dato Paduka Hj Mustapha and BSP Ethics and Compliance Manager, Daniel Elustondo and other BSM business partners, management and members of the public.

During the day, BSM had some games and activities like a roadshow to create more awareness on their products. Among them is the Racing Simulator Competition where it was the most popular attraction among the public. There was a Ferrari merchandise sale too and a colouring contest for children.

BSM would like to thank customers for their participations and loyal support in choosing Shell Helix as a preferred choice for their cars.

Sinofood Express, the exclusive franchisee of BURGER KING® restaurants in Brunei, was awarded with the ASEAN Outstanding Business Award’s “Leading Brand in Fast Food Excellence” for the Brunei market under the award’s International Category.

The ASEAN Outstanding Business Awards (AOBA) is an award under the ASEAN Retail Chains and Franchise Federation (ARFF), whereby the ARFF was initiated to serve as a platform to stimulate the economy by inciting growth of the retail-chains and franchise sectors in the ASEAN region.

Sinofood Express’ Operations Director, Goh De No, received the award on behalf of his team during the gala dinner held at the Genting International Convention Centre earlier this month.

Goh said that the award is a testament to the team’s hard work and relentless dedication towards the company in terms of trying to build the best food service company in Brunei.

“From the first day we started, our Director’s and Partners through to the top management and to all the Bruneian men and women working day in and out in our restaurants, we have been moving forward to a unified goal,” he said.

He also said that aside from running the business, the Sinofood Express team is aware that each and everyone has a chance to make a change in the Bruneian community.

Throughout the past two and a half years, the company has been able to continuously increase its contributions to non-profit organizations such as Pusat Ehsan, SMARTER and YASKA.

“This makes a big difference for us, as everyone knows they aren’t just working for themselves and their families, but their hard work will also reflect to those who are in need, which is a good motivator,” said Goh.

He stressed that the company is run based on a meritocratic system, where hard work will always be rewarded. Sinofood Express currently has 120 employees, where more than 100 of the workforce are Bruneians.

The company currently operates six Burger King restaurants and will be looking forward opening to the seventh outlet in the fourth quarter of 2016, making it one of the fastest growing Quick Service Restaurants expansion in Brunei.

Sinofood Express is currently starting its journey into food service management and training, distribution, and franchise consultancy.

Get It Done

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in Social News

6 more days and counting. I paid a visit to a group of young, vibrant entrepreneurs recently and they have an awesome project that will be unveiled pretty soon for Brunei market. I’m always very happy when I know the youth wants to create something or make a difference to make our lives more convenient than before.

Techbru Solutions (b) will be launching an app where it’s able to connect the “Vendors” and the “Customers” as a market place for products and services. The app is called “Get it Done” and guess what, the registration will be FREE.

 

 

So the main idea of the “Get It Done” app is to bridge the gap between Purveyors and Customers. For your info, purveyor is a person who sells or deals in particular goods so hence the seller or provider. The great thing is that you can do this at your convenience, where you are.

If you happen to be a Vendor, you can enjoy privileges such as :

• Receive Requests from Customer’s for your Services
• Send Quotations to your Customer’s
• Post Services that you offer
• Post Products that you’re selling
• Post Portfolio of your completed or ongoing job, orders or testimonials
• Get Offers and Orders for your Product and Make Sales!
• Chat with your Customer’s

Now what is it in for the customer end? Well, choices will be so much easier for you for the services you sought for.

• Get to receive Multiple Quotations to different vendors at a time – Here you can compare prices
• Find and Hire the best vendors because you know what’s best!
• Find and Purchase products that you had in mind
• Can’t find it? That’s okay, Send Requests to make a special order with your purveyors.
• Who doesn’t love a good discount? Go ahead bargain with your vendors
• A variety of Business Profiles for you to view

So now you don’t have browse on your IG feed to look for that particular vendors or providers. It’s all provided in one single app and at your convenience. Another way to shop online.

Techbru Solution will be blogging about the feature until the end of countdown, stay tune for more, follow Them on Instagram and Facebook. Visit www.gogetitdone.com for updates! Available soon on Apple Store and Google Play and it’s coming to Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia.

 

 

 

 

Coming Soon

coming-soon

Ah, finally.. I’ve changed my hosting and that explains why my blog has been unaccessible. Sorry for the inconvenience and I’ve also been very busy with toastmasters, pechakucha and other stuff. I was also involved with the Pechakucha Volume 8 edition last weekend. So technically I feel burnt out and hoping for some breather.

Thank you to the webmaster for all the hard work and putting up with my complaints. For your info, I have migrated hosting from bluehost to inmotion, a decision that I didn’t take likely. I’m not happy with the services from bluehost and my assumption is that they just have too many clients to handle now.

What went wrong with Bluehost for me? My site occasionally gets some errors and it was attacked once by a virus. Bluehost then recommended I purchased a site doctor from them which costed a fortune. A few weeks later, my site was still having problems and suddenly the root of the website got corrupted which caused my site to be unaccessible. The worst part is the support tech. I was made to wait for quite sometime and this explains the high traffic users of bluehost. This wasn’t the case before. So thank you to a friend from ITPSS for recommending me inmotion and so far, I’ve been enjoying their service. Well, it’s still early days but so far so good.

Do give me a few more days get the ball rolling for RA to be back to normal. Thank you once again for your patience and yes, I do miss blogging.. It has been 3 weeks *lol*
