10 lucky winners from Kempen Barakah BIBD

Kempen Barakah BIBD was launched in conjunction with the three religious months of Ramadhan, followed by Syawal and then finally Zulkaedah. Its main objective is mainly to express BIBD’s appreciation to its valued customers. Launched on the 18th August 2011, the campaign today announced ten lucky winners who walked away with B$500 credited into their BIBD accounts.

Fauzidah bte Haji Awang Sijun, Hj Md Jani @ Abdul Jabbar bin Hj Abd Majid, Siti Hamidah Hj Sarbini, Ak Md Mu’izzudin bin Pg Ismail, Kelvin Tan Jun Jie, Ak Salleh Pg Hj Mohammad, Masli bin Hj Radin, Ganti Anak Gamow, Dina Hairunisa @ Mona binti Tajuddin and Hj Adi Noh bin Tinggal couldn’t believe their luck when they received a call last week informing them that they have each won B$500. This is the second batch of winners announced and the first one was held on September 26, 2011.

Present as the guest of honour to present the cash prizes was Head of Corporate Banking Division Mr Koh Swam Sing. The presentation ceremony was held at the BIBD’s Tanjong Bunut Branch.

According to Mr Koh, more than 14,700 entry forms poured in over the last month alone and more are coming in. “We now have a total of over 22,300 submitted entry forms to participate in this campaign. The number is overwhelming. There’s only less than three weeks left before the campaign ends on November 15 and I hope those who have not signed up for our products will take this opportunity to do so soon, before the campaign ends” Mr Koh said.

Much of the entry forms came from our customers who signed up for our newly launched Debit Card. It is encouraging to see so many of BIBD’s loyal customers signing up for BIBD’s products and services. We hope to continue serving our customers to the best of our ability,” he added.

The promotion will run for three months until November 15, 2011 and will give one lucky BIBD customer an opportunity to drive away in a brand new luxury Lexus CT200h car. Text courtesy of BIBD.

BIBD Charity Netball

Netballers were treated to a day packed with action and excitement.

Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad (BIBD) held its 4th Invitational Netball Tournament yesterday, under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), with government agencies and private organisations at the Multipurpose Hall of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium, in Berakas.

Some 90 participants from several organisations made up nine teams, according to a press release. BIBD’s CSR committee members were also present at the event. The participating organisations involved yesterday were the BIBD Sukuk Team, BIBD Barakah Team, BIBD, Kauthar Team, HSBC, SCB, Takaful Brunei, Sankaran Halim, DST and the Ministry of Finance (MOF Investment Division).

BIBD’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Hajah Dayang Normah Haji Ismail officially kicked off the tournament that saw the teams battle it out from 9am onwards.

Towards the end, it was Team HSBC that was named champion of the tournament after defeating BIBD Barakah Team, 12-10 in the final; which means BIBD Barakah Team settled for silver while Team DST were awarded third place.

Among the aims of the annual BIBD Invitational Charity Netball Tournament was for BIBD to foster close relationships with other organisations through sports and at the same time encouraging the women of the organisations to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Through the tournament, BIBD also hoped to edify teamwork among peers both internally and externally with opportunities to strengthen their networks.

In conjunction with this event, BIBD also presented mock cheques with total donations of $2,355.42 to two charity organisations. The mock cheques were presented by Hajah Dayang Normah bte Hj Ismail to the representatives of the Believe Youth Association (BYA) and to Nur Zakiah Hussin, the wife of the managing director of BIBD; both of them received $1,177.71 each.

Pizza Hut’s latest promotion

Hush Puppies in Brunei

Hush Puppies opened its first-ever store in Brunei and it’s located at Rizqun Hotel (1st floor). Brought in by Le Steadfast Lifestyle Company, the Brunei branch of the popular brand saw many customers who have waited long enough for the brand to break into the local market make a beeline to its store in Gadong.

The Hush Puppies store is conveniently connected to The Mall in Gadong and offers a wide range of footwear along with socks and accessories. From dress shoes to casual shoes and phylon sandals, Hush Puppies is set to cater to your needs for good-looking, comfortable shoes. 

There is not enough choice for men’s footwear in Brunei, according to Hush Puppies representative Poh Na, therefore with the introduction of Hush Puppies here, men will have the chance to purchase comfortable as well as stylish footwear for themselves.

Poh Na said that the reception for Hush Puppies had been encouraging even before the launch, as many Bruneians are familiar with the brand. She also addressed the concern of the religious community regarding the acceptance of their shoes as being halal in terms of the leather component, as well as the issue of the basset hound logo. 

“We want to ensure our customers that the shoes, even the lining, are made of cow leather and sheepskin leather, so there is no need to worry about it.” (You want to be more assured, you can click here).

Apart from footwear, Hush Puppies also carries a range of accessories such as handbags and shoe care products. The brand’s “bamboo socks”, which absorbs perspiration and odour, are also available at the store. Text by Zatty Joanda of The Brunei Times [Click here for more stories].

You can find this at Hush Puppies, The Rizqun Hotel (1st floor)

You can buy vouchers or even have a privilege card (admin fee $10) for one year and it’s valid for Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore. On non-sale period, you’re entitled to 10% discount
