The redevelopment of Supa Save Seria which started early February this year, will be bringing a whole new shopping experience with the convenience of a bank, cafe and other exciting retail outlets under one roof. With the help of local creative agency Mixmediaworx, this popular supermarket has also been working on a re-branding exercise that will be rolled out progressively, beginning with a logo refresh followed by some exciting campaigns lined up for the coming year."
Now Dato Paduka Hj Ali Apong has three postings - as the Deputy Minister at the Prime Minister's Office, Chairman of Brunei Economic Development Board and now with the consent of His Majesty the Sultan, Dato Paduka Hj Ali Apong is the chairman of the Board of Directors of Sungai Liang Authority (SLA) which will be on an interim basis.
I was a bit shocked reading today's newspaper because of the reshuffling that is taking place at Sungai Liang Authority (SLA). Now the duties and responsibilities of SLA have been transferred to the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) and this would mean more responsibilities for BEDB and I believe they are the right driver for SLA's initiative. The transfer was consented by His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam through the Prime Minister's Office.
For your info, the other appointed Board of Directors of SLA are Permanent Secretary at the Prime Minister's Office, Dato Paduka Hj Mohd Roselan Hj Mohd Daud; Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Finance Hjh Ning-Lela Dato Paduka Hj Mohamad; Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources Hjh Normah Suria Hayati PJDSMDSU Dr HjMohd Jamil Al-Sufri; Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Development Dato Paduka Hj Suhaimi Hj Gafar; Managing Director of PetroBru Dato Paduka Hj Matsatejo Sokiaw and Chief Executive Officer ofBEDB Vincent Cheong.
For those who are not aware, SLA is supposedly to function as a one-stop agency to supervise the progress of projects at the Sungai Liang Industrial Park and foster relations between Mukim Liang communities and SLA. The project started way back in 2007 and it was under the chairmanship of Pengiran Kerma Raja Pengiran Hj Kamarulzaman Pengiran Pekerma Setia Diraja Sahibul Bandar Pengiran Hj Ali from 2007 until 2012.
Let's see what's the plan here from BEDB on SLA's project. Sometimes change is necessary to bring new energy to an organisation. A similar case happened a few years back where BEDB came under the supervision of the Prime Minister's Office.

For your info, there's a new established government agency on Wildlife Division where they are sourcing on wild and exotic animals and birds in Brunei. Recently some of the exotic birds are being caught and sold in local markets and apparently this is considered illegal. So if you happened to come across exotic animals or birds being sold, do report to the Wildlife Division.
Both Dr Joseph Charles, a biologist and senior lecturer at UBD and Jungle Dave, a wildlife enthusiast, share a similar view that the exotic birds need to be protected or else it will lead to extinction. To read more of the article, do read here.
Andy Suzuki & The Method were recently in Brunei to write and perform KFC's 20th Anniversary Music Video titled "So Good"
The song used in KFC’s 20th Anniversary Music Video titled, So Good was written and performed by Andy Suzuki & The Method. “We wrote them a story, about our feelings towards our customers whom have given us 20 years of sogood and they turned it into a wonderful song capturing the main essence of what we want to say,” says Jonathan Bong, Senior Marketing Manager.
“When you feel the morning light, who would you like to see? and When the stars burn bright, won't you think of me?”
KFC looks forward to everyday where their customers are the first on their mind in the morning and last on their mind at the night.
“It's been 20 years, since we first met. Do you remember that old feeling or did you forget?”
Many of us at KFC remember the expressions of customers when we first open the doors of our first outlet to this very day and we hope that this song can help those that were there to relive those memories too.
“Some things may have changed, we won't ever be the same. You made us so much better, since that first day”
We may have changed since 20 years ago, but it’s to improve ourselves, to serve you better.
“We will be your shelter when it starts to rain. Everyday like Fry Day, Sundae again.”
We want to pamper you when you are feeling down, we want to make your everyday feels like a holiday. (Fryday and Sundae, a pun on Friday and Sunday).
Aside from the music video, there will be a full studio version available at radio and a TV commercial of 30s will be available at the cinemas. This is the first time that KFC have produced a TV commercial and music video locally and they would like to credit Shazanas Production House for their help. KFC would like to take the chance to thank all the staff and their families, friends and especially Trinity advertising & event management and UBDFM for their help in casting.
