Tour de Brunei 2011 a big success

HRH Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah (L), Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office, presents award for overall winner to Shinichi Fukushima of Terengganu Pro-Asia Cycling team after the final stage of the Butra Heidelberg Cement Tour de Brunei 2011 in Bandar Seri Begawan yesterday.

Age is just a number for Shinichi Fukushima.

The Japanese rider from Terengganu Pro-Asia Cycling Team (TSG) rolled back the years to take home the yellow jersey after finishing second in the fifth and final stage of the Butra Heidelberg Cement Tour de Brunei yesterday.

Makekimizan Ramin of Tabriz Petrochemical Cycling claimed the last stage as both riders finished with a time of 3:37:32 in the 146.5-kilometre circuit stage which started and finished in front of the TAIB headquarters in the capital.

Thailand national team rider Phuchong Sai-Udomsin managed to finish on the podium with a three-second gap (3:37:35) from the first two riders.

Overnight yellow jersey holder, Malaysian national cyclist Muhamad Adiq Husaine, crossed the line in sixth place among a peloton of 20 cyclists with a time of 3:39:37 that saw him lose out to the Japanese veteran, who started the day 36 second behind the Malaysian.

National cyclist Muhammad Raihaan Abd Aziz was in the bunch that saw him finish in ninth place, which is the best finish by any Bruneian in the five-stage 629.5km race which is on the International Cycling Union (UCI) Asia Tour for the first time.

Present to give away the plague to the stage winners and overall jersey winners was His Royal Highness Prince Hj Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office. [To read more, click here] Text courtesy of Yee Chun Leong, The Brunei Times.

There was a long stretch of riders along Jalan Sultan

Thumbs up to the marshals too for making sure the cyclists are safe

Now we don’t see this very often during a hot day

This is like eating ice-cream during a scorching hot day

Probably the best time to do this after being under the hot sun

An interesting Facebook Page

Ok… I came across this page, thanks to one of my friends who alerted me on Twitter. But this is one page that have raised a few eyebrows especially from the replies I had on Twitter after seeing the page.

Aussino Family Day

Noor Jehan Docrat and Muhammad Docrat were the big winners as they won the Aussino bed-making challenge in a close contested final. Emily Zhang and Renee Teo came in second place who were quite impressive in the preliminary round. Noor Jehan Docrat and Muhammad Docrat received a $100 Aussino shopping voucher each while Emily Zhang and Renee Teo received a $50 Aussino shopping voucher.

In another competition, Crystal Lim Li Thong emerged as the winner of the “Shopping Cart Challenge” after registering a grand total of $1586.80, which was $20.24 less than the targeted amount $1,607.04.. Why this number? Well, it was the actual day where Aussino opened at The Mall seven years ago (16th July 2004).

The competition was carried as part of the activities to commemorate Aussino’s 7th year anniversary and last Sunday was also Aussino Family Day. They had a special surprise for their customers too as Aussino had a one-hour crazy sale of a 40% on all their items and an additional 10% for Aussino members.
