That Royal Smile

 


This is the most talked about photo on my Instagram and Facebook this week!! One of the Borneo Bulletin photographers took a priceless moment shot of His Majesty the Sultan with a heart warming smile, arm-in-arm with the house recipients at Kuala Belait. This image was taken from today's Borneo Bulletin front page. Well done, guys!!

 

Rehearsals for National Day

 

So will you guys be showing up for the big day in town on National Day? I know I will and it's another packed day for me with a few more events to cover. Now the question is what will be a good hashtag for National Day for Twitter and Instagram purposes? Some suggested #Brunei29th which had the most say. What are your suggestions? Do reply to my twitter @ranoadidas. Below are pictures from this morning's rehearsal for National Day. Images courtesy of @anakbrunei @marul69

DPMM FC takes on Home United

 

Last season DPMM FC had the best result in the S•League and they are ready to improve and better this season. Tonight they will take on Home United which have brought in new players notably former South Korea international Lee Kwan Woo. Vjeran Simunic, coach of DPMM FC, is aware of the new players for Home United and he said it won't be easy but DPMM FC are aiming for 3 away points against Home tonight. He did admit that Home is the toughest opponent for DPMM FC based on previous results.

Simunic is hoping that Santos (defender) will be fully fit in the next few weeks. Santos is the only player left from the last year's import player roster. It was a surprise that the talisman midfielder Jerkovic's contract was not renewed. Instead DPMM FC have brought in four more additional imports including one international Croatian player who had a short stint in one of the World Cups. However, Simunic said the players has not gelled yet as a team.

We shall and wait and see how the import players gel with the local lads. For your info, the import players are Croatian forward Ivan Bosnjak, Portuguese striker Joao Vitor Rocha De Carvalho Moreira, Guadeloupean midfielder Stephane Auvray, Brazilian centre-back Tales Ricarte dos Santos and Croatian defender Dino Drpic.

It's a pity Sairol won't be playing in the first game due to suspension. Hence Pg Sallehuddin will be taking his spot. All eyes will be on DPMM FC top scorer last season, Shahrazen Said, who scored 14 goals last season. His partnership with Portuguese striker have yet to be proven but let's hope for the best this season.

Good luck to all the players of DPMM FC tonight. The match will take place at Bishan Stadium.

DPMM FC next home game will be on 1st March when they take on Hougang United FC.

ICT Readiness

 

Brunei has a good literacy rate but I'm pretty sure that literacy rate in ICT is also increasing. Most job scopes now do involve the use of technology one way or another and now it's an advantage if you have a basic ICT knowledge and your resume would be good too.

Lately Infomars Training and Technology Solutions Sdn Bhd who has been awarded as the training provider to conduct basic ICT training courses under the Basic ICT Literacy and Professional Training Program Phase I. The agreement of their services was signed between the Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) and Informars Training and Technology Solutions Sdn Bhd.

Signing on behalf of AITI was the Chief Executive, Haji Yahkup bin Haji Menudin, while Infomars Traning and Technology Solutions Sdn Bhd was represented by its Director, Haji Abd Ghani bin Haji Omar.

  Under this training program, Infomars Training and Technology Solutions will be conducting four ICT training courses namely - Basic ICT Literacy, IC Citizen Training and Certification, Internet & Computing Core Certification (IC3) and CompTIA A+.

So how does AITI play a role here? Well, AITI will be subsiding a minimum 50% of the training fees. To be eligible, participants must be Brunei citizens or permanent residents above 17 years of age who is seeking for a job or working in the private sector. The participants can either opt for full-time or part-time courses depending on the training package offered.

According to Hj Yahkup, more than 1,300 participants have been trained and certified with various ICT-related courses under AITI's ICT Competency Program. The training program is set to begin in April this year.
