Traffic lights as a solution?

 


Traffic lights will be in operational soon according to Eddie Dato Paduka Hj Sunny, Deputy Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Development. Reviews have been mixed according to comments on my social media platforms.

Hmmmmm this is a tough answer for such a question.. Everyone has their own views on this and we won't actually know until it has been implemented. This will be the first time that a traffic light will be operational on a three-lane roundabout.. The ones in Beribi and Berakas seemed to work though those are only two lanes.

My prediction will be that these traffic lights at the Kiulap roundabout will be operational during peak hours. There have been many motorists who have misused the use of the big roundabout and even having constant awareness doesn't help.

I have seen people's complain about congestions on the road. However, let me point out that the traffic congestion is not as bad as other countries and I do appreciate the country we are living in. Road congestions doesn't last more than an hour (max) which is still acceptable but still can be improved. What I'm more concerned is the road conditions such as uneven roads and pot holes in some populated areas.

Of course, we have to think ahead of the future.. Having wider roads or fly-overs would be useful in the next 5 to 10 years given the rate of population of cars increasing time after time. So peeps, if you want to share your comments, do click here or here.

BIBD Delights!

 


I present to you the ladies that made it possible for the Wing-It event last weekend - @muffinsparadisebrunei @pvintajcupcakes @wingitbrunei @sweet_as_sara @wondermanabn

All you need is great food, good branding and an instagram and of course, this must follow with good customer service. The food business is always a growing industry despite the small market or volume and some even joked that eating is our past time in Brunei because we don't have much really (of things to do).

Last weekend see a strong response from the community as they flocked to to Simpang 35 at Mabohai for the Wing-It event with the theme "Wingin', Bakin' and Shakin' n Singin'"and the event was held for two days. Three vendors had their items all sold out in the space of two hours and I interviewed @sweet_as_sara (instagram) that 600 of their cupcakes were gone in two hours. I would have predicted that they would have swept all of it in less than two hours should there wasn't a long queue to begin with.

The vendors that joined forces with @wingitbrunei were @muffinsparadisebrunei @sweet_as_sara @pvintajcupcake and @wondermambn and there were also Shakecolate and Cakes & Crafts. There were performances from Aziz Harun and Damai Heroes.

Well done to the lady entrepreneurs and also to the Brunei community for supporting their part-time businesses. Oh yeah, one of them ladies wears a fire fighter suit to work.. Cool, aye?
