An award-winning modeling compound, Bubber, is now available at Wrap In A Box

Bubber is an award-winning modeling compounds invented by Swedish engineers. To maintain quality, it is manufactured exclusively in Sweden.

Bubber is probably the lightest modeling compound in the world (it can float on water!). Unlike play-doh and other compounds, it never dries out, feels great in your hands (like marshmallow), and can be molded in just about anything! It leaves clean, sharp edges when cut and precise impressions when imprinted. You can create anything from light-as-air perfect cookies to sand castles. Kids love bubber because it is not sticky or gritty; it actually feels warm in their hands. Bubber is also great for kids with allergies – it is wheat, gluten and casein free and 100% safe and non-toxic.

So now it's available at Wrap In A Box which is located at Kiarong (near Kiarong Complex). So do drop by and check it out. It's ideal for kids and parents won't have to worry too much of its content.

BD Nature Festival 2013


Acting Director of Tourism Board Development Mariani Hj Sabtu (2nd from right) announced the first Brunei Darussalam Nature Festival 2013 last Saturday

Guess what's happening in end of May and early June? Well, Tourism Development Board will be organising the first ever Brunei Darussalam Nature Festival 2013 with their co-organiser Sakam Enterprise Sdn Bhd. A press conference was held last Saturday at the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources.

It has a theme which is "Bird Watching Tourism in Brunei Darussalam" and it will be a four day event which will be held at the Royal Wharf. The Acting Director of Tourism Board Development, Mariani Hj Sabtu, said that this will be the first of its kind and bird watching activity is quite popular in Sabah and Brunei also has the potential to have a similar activity.

She's confident that engaging the services of Sakam Enterprise that they are able to showcase to Bruneians and residents of its rich nature and diversity during the four day event. She also announced that the festival will be held in conjunction with the first Boreno Bird Race 2013 where Brunei will be hosting with Sabah.

Mohammad Vol Momin of Sakam Enterprise aims at creating awareness that we need to protect the endangered species and also conserve the environment. He's quite content that the youth are becoming more aware of this issue. I was also quite surprised that he shared how much the States are able to earn revenue in billions for bird-watching tourism alone.. Amazing!! So I guess first thing is first - awareness..

Do check out their Facebook page for details and for those wanting to rent a booth especially those who are NGOs that deal with wildlife and nature, this is a good avenue to showcase. There will be booths and vendors during the event at the Royal Wharf.

More of this event soon as I will have more details by then.

May the Froth event at GJC


The management of Gloria Jeans Coffee with Star Wars cosplay last Saturday to celebrate "May the 4th be with You" for Star Wars day

I kinda like the gimmick of Gloria Jeans Coffee for the recent Star Wars event recently held at its outlet at Citis Square. The event was called "May the Froth" (or hashtag #Mayfroth) in conjunction with International Star Wars day - May the 4th be with you. Gloria Jeans Coffee (GJC) had promotional gimmicks where you can get free Star Wars magnets if you purchased at least $25 on a single receipt and it was quite popular too.

There was also a Star Wars lego display organised by BULAT (Brunei Usergroup Lego and Technics) and four members of BULAT displayed their Star Wars collection. There was also speed building competition between the female and male BULAT members where they had to build R2D2 and B-Wings model. It seems that the ladies won the race :D

And of course, the finale of the event was the appearance of Star Wars characters where patrons of GJC and the public had the opportunity to take photos with them. Anyway, thanks Firdaus for the blue refreshing drink.. Love it!!

Love the tee :D
