Supa Save Re-opens

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."

 


Les Miserables

 



Les Miserables. This is not a movie for those who can't endure musical or singing. Well, this is no Bollywood stuff and nowhere close *lol* Spoilers alert ---> The singing is from start to finish and the non-singing dialogue content is perhaps only 2-3% of the whole 3 hours movie. However, I'm unfazed by it. Why? First I do enjoy musical movie shows and second is the performances by Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman especially the former. Did you know that Anne Hathaway is only on screen for 15 minutes only? And yet she totally delivered when it mattered and her presence made an impact throughout the movie. She was just freaking awesome!!!

Russell Crowe was one of the flaws in the movie. The main reason being that he can't hit the right notes and I was reading on some entertainment news that it was a challenging role for him. But I have a huge respect for Tom Hooper, the director of Les Miserables, who managed to make up for Russell's weakness in singing by playing around with the camera works. You will probably noticed how much of a close-up was given to Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman during their solo moments as compared to Russell Crowe. I also love how the script was written which makes it easier for the audience to grasp. I thought that I was gonna weep since a few of my friends were in tears. I survived *lol*. I recommend you to watch Les Miserable and watch out for Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) on screen. Hilarious!! Verdict: 8/10.

Thumbs up to BIBD At-Tamwil & ITB

 



 

A few weeks ago a press conference was held where BIBD At-Tamwil Berhad and Institut Teknologi Brunei revealed that they will be organising the inaugural BIBD At-tamwil University Cup which will be launched tomorrow evening. This will be the first inter-university football tournament for local universities and higher institutions in Brunei Darussalam.

The one month tournament will kick off on Saturday, 5th January at 7pm at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium. All of you are welcome to watch the opening ceremony tomorrow and catch the first match between ITB "A" and UNISSA "A" at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium. There will be lucky draws at every match and you can get the lucky draw tickets at BIBD At-tamwil branches at Beribi and KB branch and also during the matches themselves. To be eligible for the draw, you will have to put the draw at the lucky draw box during the match day itself.

The expressed objective of this UniCup is to improve the quality of football sports in Brunei Darussalam, to increase healthy and friendly competition among local Universities, we would like also to promote sense of belonging among undergraduates and highlight the leadership qualities amongst undergraduates through their hard work and dedication in organising the premier event.

Guess what? The University Cup will also be updated via social network such as Facebook and Instagram. The name of the official Facebook page of UniCup 2013 is ‘BIBD At-Tamwil Berhad University Cup’ and the Official Instagram page is ‘attamwil_universitycup’.

There will also be quizzes and photography competition where you can win attractive prizes during the one-month tournament. All you have to do is upload your photos on instagram and make sure that you use the hashtags #ATWUC or #ATWUC13 and #TAMWILUC and photos with the most likes will win attractive prize. Oh yeah, it's also ideal if you don't privatise your IG account, otherwise it will be hard for the management to view your photos.


Fantastic prizes to be won tomorrow as well on the opening night of the University Cup 2013

Do join them on instagram for updates too and don't forget to hashtag your photos #ATWUC or #ATWUC13 and #TAMWILUC

A huge fire this morning

 

I woke up this morning with updates on whatsapp and instagram on what is a fire mishap at Menglait that started out early in the morning. The Royal Brunei Police Force and BOMBA had to close the roads leading to the affected area and even Gadong Central. I drove past the bridge on my way back around 11ish am and the fire was still not under control. I'm not exactly sure what companies that are affected and I'm not sure what was the cause of the huge fire. Good job on BOMBA in making sure the fire didn't escalate into other parts of the building and of course, the shell station wasn't affected too which was just metres away from the incident.
