IA Salon also focuses on Make-up

I was given a quick run through on the make-up accessories brought in by Cecilia of IA Salon

I always wanted to know the importance of make-up or how much difference it can make one appear. I know of a friend where their peers won't recogniser her because she didn't apply any make-up. I never thought that would a make-up would make a difference.

Last week Cecilia of IA Salon presented a brief explanation and demo on the make-up brands she brought it for the benefit of their customers. She believes in the quality of the products that M•A•C and Make up For Ever deliver and it's also an advantage to use a high quality brush to get the best effect.

So if you want to get some make-up done, IA Salon (located at The Mall, next to Guardian) can do wonders and this is ideal if you want to do some photoshoot session or preparing for an occasion. Cecilia also conducts classes for make-up for those interested.

High demand for O&G

YB Pehin Dato Hj Mohammad Yasmin, The Minister of Energy inspiring those attended the session last month

You need to start somewhere. You need to be aware too if such opportunity arises. The Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister's Office urged the umemployed graduates to commit rather than treat the recruitment as a transitional period last month during the open dialogue session which received an overwhelming response from the public.

Brunei as we know is driven by the "Oil and Gas" sector and the opportunities are there if you make the effort and put your heart to it. It was a very demanding industry said the Minister and business is a reality for the oil and gas players.

It seeems that a lot of companies are facing similar issues where commitment has been questionable. The same goes to the local SMEs in Brunei where job hopping is quite common. Perhaps it's all about educating the public and also shifting their mindsets of individuals.

It was good to see the Minister visiting the students from one table to another and asking any questions put forth by the graduates. He also encouraged the graduates to even set up their own businesses and be entrepreneurial.

The previous dialogue session was successful where 50 of them have secured jobs as apprentices and full-time employees. Let's hope for a better return in the recent dialogue session.

Cecilia spent two months in NY

I never knew my friend Cecilia Lee is very passionate of her work. She really dedicated her two months in New York for one thing - an international workshop on make-up. Now she has more knowledge and new techniques for make-up.

The workshop classes she attended cover aspects such as lamour make up, lash,lip and brow excellence,perfect beauty and understanding airbrush make up. You can visit IA Salon at The Mall if you are interested to learn make up.

Below are pictures of Cecilia during her make-up workshops in New York.

Educational books at Fun Bee Park

I'm amazed by the things that kids can benefit from Fun Bee Park. It's like a day care centre but with a bonus of educational stuff such as books and games. What I'm impressed are the books they brought in from overseas and this can create interest in kids to be more curious and wanting to learn more.
