Citroën launches showroom 
 

We had a sneak peak of the new Citroën cars especially the DS line a few months ago at The Mall. Now it’s a reality that they already have an actual showroom for the event. Lionel Bernard Faugeres, General Director for Citroën ASEAN countries, was impressed that Grand Motors Sdn Bhd was able to create the showroom in 10 months.

The event was attended by His Excellency Mr. Jean Yves Berthault, Ambassador of France to Brunei Darussalam as the the guest of honour and he applauded Grand Motors’ initiative to bring French brand such as Citroën to Brunei and this shows that Brunei has confidence in French brand and he hopes to see more French products and services coming in to Brunei. He believes that Citroën will have a good impact, considering that Bruneians tend to buy or own more than one car.

I shall talk more about the specs of the Citroën DS line later on in my post and Grand Motors brought in three new DS lines. Congratulations Grand Motors on the launch of the Citroën showroom at Beribi.

#DPMMFCvsBalestier

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in DPMM FC, News

 

Gunning for 3 points 
 


Catch DPMM FC vs Balestier Khalsa FC this Friday at Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium
 


Can DPMM FC’s Azwan Ali head for another victory tonight?

DPMM FC is aiming for their fourth win in a row after overcoming the likes of Courts Young Lions, Harimau Muda and Hougang United FC in their last three outings. Scoring a healthy 14 goals in the three games, DPMM FC host another tricky opponent Balestier Khalsa FC at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium tonight. Yea, it has been a mini break for DPMM FC after their last game but DPMM FC head coach Steve Kean believes that they can carry the momentum forward.

With DPMM FC on the second of the S•League, Kean was not surprised that previous league Tampines Rovers dropped points. “No, not at all. I think the schedules have taken a lot for Tampines as they have to more games (in AFC) and a lot of traveling involved. We even know what traveling is like even on a short haul flight. And when you start traveling around the world, traveling can catch with you and I told the boys to keep getting the points and Tampines will surely drop some points.”

However, the surprised package of the season has to be Warriors FC who are now on the top of the S•League by one point though DPMM FC can leapfrog to first if they draw or beat Balestier Khalsa FC tonight. Warriors FC and DPMM FC are the only team to have lost once this season.

All key players should be back for this match tonight. Sairol Sahari and Rosmin Kamis who missed the previous game will be featured tonight and this is a major boost for DPMM FC to claim all three points. Kean is also targeting another clean sheet and he stresses how defence is the key to victory.

However, the team selection has been causing some headaches to Kean because the bench players have also been performing while deputising for the first team players who were injured. This shows the maturity of the squad of DPMM FC. Kean praised one individual, Azwan Ali, as he’s learning new things and adapting them during the competitive matches. Kean said Azwan has great strength in his legs and that made the difference when he scored for a leaping header against Hougang United FC for the winner.

You can read more about Azwan’s interview in today’s The Brunei Times and he has been instrumental in DPMM FC’s attacking formation. Even Kean praised that Azwan Ali can play in any team in the world. Let’s hope Azwan Ali can repeat the same performance that he has delivered in the past few games.

So guys, do catch DPMM FC tonight at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium and you can also stand a chance to win a flight to KL or JKT (sponsored by Royal Brunei Airlines) and the winners will be announced by half-time.


Wardun in training. Let’s hope for another clean sheet and of course, it’s a team effort too.
 


Steve Kean has been instrumental in guiding the team – mentally and physically – on and off the pitch

The guest of honour was Datin Paduka Hjh Adina Othman, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports and she inspired the audience about being sincere and truthful especially at workplace. She’s also a proud grandmother and emphasize the importance of family.

It was great to see Lee Yingshi, the gold medalist at the SEA Games for Wushu. Only 20, she shared to the audience that to keep doing sports to keep yourself healthy and also study smart in your studies.

Shaun Hoon made a great speech and dedicated it to his daughter who has been inspiring him. Well done on the special edition and I know how much work you have invest in this magazine.

Loving the Audi A3 
 


The new Audi A3 – World Car of the Year 2014

Now you can drive a premium car at an affordable price. That’s what I love about Audi cars. Whenever there’s a launch, it creates a buzz among the community. My IG post on the recent Audi A3 Sedan caught attention and even the during the sneak launch, one of the Audi A3 was being booked.

So what’s so special about the new Audi A3 Sedan? Well, it’s lighter and faster. It uses a new Audi Ultra lightweight technology and it’s faster (0-100 km/h) by 1.2 seconds to its closest competitor. Like John Tan, the Marketing Manager of Audi Brunei (T.C.Y. Motors Sdn Bhd), that just improvement on the speed makes a difference between a champion and a runner-up. True indeed!!

Car weight is just 1,370 kilo which is considered light and as I’ve mentioned before it’s due to the Audi Ultra lightweight construction. This is considered a great benchmark figure for its class.

As usual, Audi will offer headlights in xenon plus technology, including LED daytime running lights including the tail lights.

Its engine has a 1.8 TFSI turbo petrol engine outputting 132 kW (180 hp). Other highlights are the five-mode Auto Drive Select which includes an efficiency (helps improve consumption values) and individual mode.

The interior has a much better upgrade than its predecessors and it boasts ground-breaking quality of the materials and workmanship. Once you enter the Audi A3, you will get a different feel kinda environment and you will be impressed.

I was also impressed with the safety features of the Audi A3 especially the braking systems when there is a collision. It also earned “The Top Safety Pick +” Award. If the collision is inevitable, the brake assist uses controlled braking maneuvers during the accident to prevent secondary collisions. This can help to prevent the car from skidding and thus additional collisions.

Last Friday, there was a sneak launch preview for invited Audi customers and it was unveiled by Audi Brunei Managing Director Teng Chee Khiong and General Manager and Acting Sales Manager of Audi Brunei, Sridheevan Sivanantham.

As I posted earlier in my post, Audi A3 was being named 2014 World Car of the Year. The A3 was voted as the winner by an international jury panel comprising 69 top‑level automotive journalists from 22 countries around the world.With this win for the Audi A3, Audi has maintained its position as the manufacturer with the most World Car of the Year titles. The brand with the four rings has previously won three World Performance Car titles, two World Car Design of the Year titles and the inaugural World Car of the Year title. In total Audi has won seven titles at the World Car of the Year Awards:

2005 Audi A6 World Car of the Year
2007 Audi RS 4 World Performance Car, Audi TT World Car Design of the Year
2008 Audi R8 World Performance Car, Audi R8 World Car Design of the Year
2010 Audi R8 V10 World Performance Car

2014 Audi A3 World Car of the Year

For more info, you can visit their showroom at T.C.Y. showroom at Kiarong or call 244 2333 for more info. Do check out some of the youtube videos of the Audi A3. The actual launch of the Audi A3 will be something in May if I’m not mistaken.

Moyes term ended 
 


In less than a season, David Moyes was 3 games shy of completing a full season with Manchester United. According to the news, he left the club but only to be headlined with the keyword “sacked”. A very mixed responses from MU fans but the neutrals thought it was a wise decision by the board. Anyway, good luck to you, Moyes and while it’s still a hot topic, here are some of the meme for Moyes. No hard feelings, MU :)

Launch of Syariah 
 

Penal Code 
 


The Syariah Penal Code briefing by the panelists yesterday at Rizqun International Hotel

From the 1st of April to the 22nd of April and now a new date has been set for the official launch of Syariah Penal Code which will fall next week Wednesday 30th April 2014. It was announced on the radio that His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam will launch the Syariah Penal Code at ICC.

Yesterday was the first time I attended the Syariah Penal Code briefing hosted by the Malaysia High Commission to Brunei Darussalam at the Rizqun International Hotel. I have to say that it’s not as bad as many people perceived it. Of course, the bigger focus from the audience was the dress code, judging from the questions being raised but the panelists must have gone through this Q&A over and over again with similar answers and I would understand the level of tolerance they would have to put go through in answering them.

The bigger picture as the panelists were sharing is the “indecent behaviour”. It’s just so happened that indecent clothing can be interpreted as an act of indecent behaviour. This is yet again a subjective matter as different people have different perception on what is deemed appropriate and decent when it comes to clothing as the panelist shared. They advised the audience not to be concerned too much on clothing but more of the indecent behaviour such as kissing in public or getting too cozy in public to name a few.

Watching a movie with the opposite sex is not considered “khalwat” or close proximity when being asked of the question because it’s a public venue. One raised a concern about attires during sports. As we know, many of us wear shorts and leggings when it comes to sport activities. The panelists said that a committee has been set up to look into this matter on clothing during sport activities and they will advise the public once they have the guidelines.

It was shared also that tudong is not compulsory for Muslim women but they encouraged them to wear as an obligation of a Muslim women.

My friends attended the session yesterday and shared that the Syariah law is not as bad as they thought they were and these are non-Muslim friends. They see it as a protective measure for the community. I actually have gained more insight during the briefing but it’s not easy to grasp the briefing as it was cramped into an hour and they only highlighted some areas due to time constraint. Do get a copy of the Syariah Penal Code and also do attend a briefing if you have the opportunity. So peeps, let’s not be quick to judge what Syariah Penal Code provides. Do understand it fully first before commenting on it. Yes, we have been polluted with words from others who only based on their findings without fully understanding the concept. I do agree with one of the Ministers that let’s make a positive spin when it comes to the Syariah law and not focusing on the negative aspects.

Audi A3 makes its mark 
 

Audi A3 is named 2014 World Car of the Year

• Third generation of Audi’s premium compact car is a world beater

• Second overall victory for Audi at World Car of the Year Awards

The Audi A3, the premium compact bestseller from the brand with the four rings, is the 2014 World Car of the Year. This is the second overall title for Audi in the ten year history of the World Car of the Year Awards as the Audi A6 won the inaugural overall title in 2005.

The third generation of the Audi A3 is now officially confirmed as a world beater. It overcame the challenge from 23 other cars to win the prestigious World Car of the Year title in 2014. The A3 was voted as the winner by an international jury panel comprising 69 top‑level automotive journalists from 22 countries around the world.

Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, said: “The Audi A6 was the first ever winner of this award and we are delighted that the Audi A3 has repeated that achievement by being voted 2014 World Car of the Year. The Audi A3 showcases Audi’s technical competence in all aspects of carmaking, not least in the areas of lightweight technology, drivetrain, mobile infotainment and driver assistance systems. This major award win is an achievement that the whole company can celebrate”.

The new Audi A3 is available as a 3 door, Sportback, Cabriolet and Sedan. It is powered by a range of TFSI gasoline and TDI diesel engines. The A3 Sportback can also be ordered as a g‑tron, which can be operated using e‑gas generated by Audi, natural gas, or gasoline – when powered by e‑gas, the A3 Sportback g‑tron travels CO2-neutral.

 


Audi A3 being named 2014 World Car of the Year

Later this year, the A3 Sportback will also be available as an e‑tron, whose plug‑in hybrid drive enables journeys of up to 50 kilometres in all‑electric mode. Audi is offering customers in Germany green electricity – Audi energy. The cooperating partner is the Hamburg energy provider LichtBlick SE. The power all comes from renewable energy sources and is generated exclusively at hydro-electric power stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. With Audi energy, the A3 e‑tron is totally emission-free when operated electrically.

Audi can look back on a 16‑year success story with the A3. In 1996, the first generation of the model series established an entirely new market segment – the premium compact class. With the second generation, which followed in 2003, the brand extended its lead with the addition of a Cabriolet to the familiar 3 door and Sportback body styles. The third A3 generation is available in four body styles following the further addition of the Sedan.

With this win for the Audi A3, Audi has maintained its position as the manufacturer with the most World Car of the Year titles. The brand with the four rings has previously won three World Performance Car titles, two World Car Design of the Year titles and the inaugural World Car of the Year title. In total Audi has won seven titles at the World Car of the Year Awards:

2005 Audi A6 World Car of the Year
2007 Audi RS 4 World Performance Car, Audi TT World Car Design of the Year
2008 Audi R8 World Performance Car, Audi R8 World Car Design of the Year
2010 Audi R8 V10 World Performance Car
2014 Audi A3 World Car of the Year

 

  
 

SteelSeries at Concepts Computer 
 


TigerLim posing with Vincent Pao and Zul Abdul Rahman of Concepts Computer, showcasing their new products – SteelSeries, now available at their store

I’m not much of a gamer myself. I heard of other peripheral brands for gaming and only recently I heard of SteelSeries and apparently, a lot of gamers in Brunei know of this brand. It seems that they know what’s good for gaming accessories ranging from mouses to keyboard and headphones. It’s also good to know that Concepts Computer have partnered with SteelSeries in providing their peripherals to promote the gaming industry in Brunei Darussalam.

SteelSeries launched an iconic series of SteelSeries Frost Blue and Heat Orange limited edition gaming gears, comprising SteelSeries Sensei RAW gaming mouse, SteelSeries Siberia v2 gaming headset and SteelSeries QCK gaming mousepad.

Perhaps the most significant product of SteelSeries is the SteelSeries Sensei RAW mouse. I don’t know what this means but it said to provide a high performance as high as 5,670 counts per inch in terms of scalable pointer speed and fine-tuning on-the-fly of the speed will be easy as togging high and low. It’s ideal for fast pace gaming such as Counter Strike to name one. The mouse is priced at BND 128.

You also should try out the Siberia v2 gaming headset and it comes in different colours too. It has super bright LED and delivers superior sound to differentiate them from other competitors.

Do check out the posters below for more details.

Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer, said, “Our partnership with SteelSeries is the next step in Concepts Computer’s diversification and expansion into different sectors of the Bruneian IT market. We believe for Gamers, “Winning is Everything”, and that is what we’re trying to deliver with SteelSeries gaming peripherals.”

For more information or to experience the SteelSeries Gaming Experience, visit the nearest Concepts Computer showroom, or call 2233551 or 2233552.
