I present to you Sir Sib


The mascot for SCB Half Marathon is Sir Sib (Seeing is Believing) which was unveiled this afternoon at Radisson Hotel

Last year, it was a huge success where more than 4,000 participants took part in the event. I think 2012 was a great sign for Brunei in terms of creating the healthy lifestyle culture. Yesterday Standard Chartered Brunei announced this year's Half-Marathon event which will take place on the 7th april 2013.

Great Eastern Life is the official sponsor for the Standard Chartered Half-Marathon. The official partners are GetFit Crossfit, Mixmediaworx, New Balance, Radisson Hotel, Royal Brunei Airlines, Soleus, Suci, Sunlit Advertising, 100 Plus, Borneo Bulletin and Media Permata. This event is also strongly supported by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports and sanctioned by the Brunei Athletics Association. ThreeG Media Sdn Bhd is also a supporter.

This year, funds raised through this event will benefit Standard Chartered Bank's Seeing is Believing programme, SMARTER and Learning Ladders. We look forward to welcoming you to our event and thank you for your participation and support.

To register, you can click here. There are a few categories to choose from 2.5km, 5km, 10km, 21km for Bruneians and 21km open category. I will be joining the 10km should I be in the country then . The images below are courtesy of Ammirul of The Brunei Times.

Caroline Sim, Assistant Head of Great Eastern Brunei, talked about the company's role as a sponsor for SCB Half-Marathon. Great Eastern Life, for your info, also focuses on a healthy lifestyle.

Sneak peek for CF 11


I was there this afternoon to take some shots of the preparation for the upcoming Consumer Fair 11 (CF11) which will take place in a few hours' time. The event will last for five days from Wednesday to Sunday and I still vaguely remember how the 1st Consumer Fair was back then in 2007.

This time the venue is slightly different and it won't be at ICC. It will be at the Indoor Stadium Carpark area and there will be three zones plus the Indoor Stadium which will taken up by NBT. Approximately 400 booths will be making their presence felt this week until the weekend and it's also a great time to spend as there will be special promotions from various companies.

Of course, the main draw will be the Toyota Vios Auto which is the grand prize of the CF11 lucky draw. There will be rock cllmbing activities organised by Poni Divers. Kingston Beverage & Creamery Sdn Bhd will be organising "Kingston Ice-Cream Eating Contest" and also a jingle competition. Syarikat Perniagaan Malar Setia will organise and facilitate the "Malar Setia Guess & Win" activity throughout the event, as well as the "Enjoy & Win with Mi Sedaap" draw.

I shall be posting more pictures but for now, these are the sneak pics taken this afternoon.

You will see this arch which is the main entrance. It is advice for you to park at the National Stadium and you will have to take the shuttle bus in order to get into the CF11 venue

Exhibitors moving their goods from the carpark area

It's never easy to drag stuff from the carpark. Loads of energy required especially during the set up.

It rained for a bit this afternoon, making logistics trickier


Recapping moments with friends


With Khalil and Hamizah two weeks ago. Khalil will be off to U.S. for further studies so let's catch up soon buddy and Happy belated wishes to LFHW model Mizah (though I've already wished you yesterday). Let's catch up soon before you fly, dude!

It was fun to see blindfold musical chair *lol* Thanks Amalina for the suggestion

We had a pot luck gathering a few weeks ago and I realised no matter how much we tell them to bring a little, we tend to have more food than required

My best buddy. Enough said :))

We had so many bbqs as of late.. A good start to 2013 indeed

We had a water fight last weekend. Totally fun!!

The culprits of the night.. but then again, all got wet

The aftermath of the colourful water bombs

The chocolate chip cake was delicious indeed

I think we had too much lamb in the space of a few days

I bumped into my sister during the opening night of the At-tamwil University Cup. Thanks for keeping me company that night. Hugs!!

I finally realised she's a good food critique too. I always tell to give a 2nd chance and it pays off at times *lol*
