Ogy is set for Sepang 1000KM

The stage is set.. A few more months and the Red Bull Rookies team will be competing in the Sepang 1000KM race this December. I will be there for the coverage and let’s hope her team can complete the endurance race. Last year, the rookies team came 28th out of 56 teams. Impressive.. This year is gonna be tough as well.

One of the racers is no other than Ogy who will represent Brunei for the Red Bull Rookies team. She missed the cut earlier on but re-selected for a second chance and she capitalised on the opportunity given. She joins Siti Shahkirah, Mark Darwin (of Malaysia) and Emmiline Alexis Ang (of Singapore).

I managed to catch up with Ogy for a quick interview two Saturdays ago. All the best, Ogy..

Another clean up at Jerudong Beach

As much as 418.5 kilogrammes of waste materials was successfully collected within 1.5hr by a group of 151 volunteers who participated at the Beach Bunch clean-up at Jerudong Beach yesterday morning. The collected waste, comprising 100kg of plastic, 1.5kg aluminiums and 317kg of general waste were loaded to a recycling company pick-up truck for recycling process.

The clean-up campaign has received encouraging responses from members of the public as well as eco-friendly groups in the country. It was also participated by Poni Divers group who conducted under water cleanup.

The co-founder of Brunei’s Beach Bunch, Mr Alan Tan said, “This is the second time Beach Bunch has organised a clean-up. Today is the third Saturday of September and an International Coastal Cleanup Day is usually held all around the world and it is the second time Brunei have participated in such event.” He said Beach Bunch has been very committed to carry out this mission to clean up beaches because they try to show to the world that they care about the world. Mr Alan said: “We are doing the cleanup in conjunction with the Ocean Conservancy, Project Aware and Cleanup The World, in order to help keep our waterways clean.”

On the third Saturday of September, data will be compiled and send to Ocean Conservancy, which they will put in an international database. He said, “Ocean Conservancy is basically a non-profit organisation in the United States that organises clean-ups and underwater clean-ups. He said Ocean Conservancy had been very supportive of us and when they first heard about what we have been doing, they asked us to join them.

“We conducted an event at Serasa Beach, which was participated by 56 volunteers including divers, jet skiers and individuals. And this year, the respond was very encouraging and we were very happy.

“The last time we held a similar campaign in Serasa Beach, we managed to collect more than 400kg worth of waste within two hours with only 65 volunteers. “It is very sad to see the state of the Jerudong Beach. A load of rubbish is seen washed up on the seashore left by people,” he said.

When asked what was his advice to the public, he said they want to show to the younger generation of how to go green and have a better and healthy environment. Another cleanup event will be held in Tutong, Belait and Brunei-Muara Districts next year, and the campaign will be held at the same time as this year.

Alan also said that the Beach Bunch will continue to encourage Bruneians and the general public to help in looking after the beaches and help protect them as much as possible as well as reduce the wastage.

He said at the moment, Beach Bunch is trying to reach towards the younger generation through educating the students and schools by inviting them to join the clean-up events.

He also said that the Poni Divers is also helping them carrying out the underwater clean-up projects. Cikgu Nur Alya who led a group from Tumpuan Telisai Primary School said, “Our group is from the Girl Guide comprising students from Year One and Year Five, aged six to 11 years old.”

The volunteers were groups from STPRI, ISB, JIS, Yayasan SHHB, Girls Guide from Tumpuan Telesai Primary School, Maktab Duli, ITB, UBD, Ahmad Zaki group, Sharul Group as well as other individuals.

At the end of the event, the volunteers received certificates from the Beach Bunch President. [Text by Achong Tanjong, Borneo Bulletin].
