ICON Design Store

 



Guess what, readers?? ICON Design Store is having a clearance sale on their European furniture. If you haven't dropped by ICON Design Store, then I suggest you do especially if you are a collector of European furniture. Actually you don't have to be one to enjoy the great quality and the continental design of the furniture brought in by ICON Store.

ICON Design Store will be having in new stock coming in so this is a great time to buy their existing stock where they will be giving 25% discount on all the stock items. That's definitely an awesome deal. They are closed on Mondays but they are open from Tuesday to Thursday 10am to 7:30pm, Friday 2pm to 7:30pm, Saturday 10am to 7:30pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm.

The furniture shop is located at Sempurna Complex, Jalan Batu Bersurat and it's two blocks away from Happy Star. They also provide free delivery locally to your homes. You can check out their website here or you can call 242 7351 for more information.

CRAFT officially launched

 


Dato Paduka Hj Ali Apong, Deputy Minister at the Prime Minister's Office, hopes to see the creation of more multimedia companies in Brunei during the launch of CRAFT at the Knowledge Hub.

The Creative Arts Facilities (CRAFT), an initiative spearheaded by the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB), was officially launched by Yang Mulia Dato Paduka Hj Ali Apong, Deputy Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Chairman of BEDB.

I believe CRAFT will create more interest in this field and entice more youth to take up this initiative provided by BEDB. CRAFT is located at Knowledge Hub and they have physical labs, workstations and even rendering facilities for multimedia developers. So this is a great place to start off with and yes, you can have zero knowledge and start from scratch too.

The goal of CRAFT is to train at least 100 animators and multimedia developers in the next four years. The BEDB will continue to collaborate with relevant government agencies, including foreign agencies, institutes of higher learning as well as foreign and local industry players to ensure that a conducive ecosystem is developed to allow the growth of the local creative industry.

There was also a signing ceremony between BEDB and Autodesk (NASDAW: ADSK), a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Autodesk, for your info, will be providing training and certification for Autodesk media and entertainment solutions at CRAFT.

Signing on behalf of the BEDB was Dr. Abdul Manaf Metussin, Deputy CEO of BEDB, witnessed by Mr. Daniel Leong, Senior Manager Innovation and New Initiatives, while signing on behalf of Autodesk was Mr. V. R. Srivatsan, Managing Director for ASEAN Region and witnessed by Mr. Chris Lee, Regional Sales Manager.

Gavin & Rory get certified

 

[Press release from GetFit CrossFit]: Two Bruneian athletes, Gavin Singh Sekhon & Rory Teo, recently returned to the Sultanate as the nation’s first certified USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Coaches. This came after successfully completing their grueling, yet highly sought-after qualification in Chiang Mai, Thailand. USAW is the nationalgoverning body overseeing the sport of Olympic weightlifting in the United States.

Olympic weightlifting, also called Olympic-style weightlifting, is an athletic discipline in the modern Olympic programme in which participants attempt a maximum-weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates. The two lifts attempted in this style of weightlifting are the snatch and the clean and jerk.

“If properly executed, the snatch and the clean and jerk are both dynamic and explosive while appearing graceful. These lifts and their components are commonly used by elite athletes in other sports to train for both explosive and functional strength. Usain Bolt, the reigning Olympic champion, incorporates these very lifts to complement his sprinting.”, says Rory.

Their training and subsequent evaluation was carried out by experienced Olympic weightlifters, Mark Cannella and Drew Dillon. Mark is head coach and president of the Columbus Weightlifting Club (CWLC) in Columbus, Ohio, USA and was present at the 2012 London Olympics as a coach for US Olympic weightlifter Holley Mangold. He also organizes and hosts the annual prestigious Arnold Olympic Weightlifting Competition.

Drew is currently ranked in the top ten in the USA for the 85kg class, and also assisted in coaching lifters to reach the Olympics in London. He is a state record holder and has finished as high as fourth in the US at a National level.

According to Gavin, they are excited to work with aspiring weightlifters, national athletes or even everyday individuals who simply want to learn the basics of the Olympic lifts. He says, “Just understanding & carrying out the lifts safely will add value to your everyday lives thus making you a stronger, fitter and an overall healthier person. This will then carry over to your life at home and at work.”

Rory & Gavin, who also happen to be certified CrossFit Level 1 instructors, are both co-owners of GetFit CrossFit, the first CrossFit affiliate in Brunei Darussalam. Their training regiment consists of a unique blend of Olympic-style weightlifting, gymnastics and endurance. While in Thailand, they also competed in a USAW-sanctioned Olympic weightlifting competition and came in second and fourth place respectively.
