Comics has lost its mojo

Maher Zain to Brunei in March

The wait is almost over. The concert is made possible by NMHQR Studio Productions. I will be gathering more information on the concert soon. Would this the first of many international artist concerts after a long dry spell? Let’s hope so..

Norashikin wins Proton Saga FL

Nine hundred grand draw finalists stood still with emotions and anticipation as 10 small piece of paper were drawn out of a box and the names etched on them were announced.

These 10 lucky winners were then asked to come on stage to choose a key that would open the door to a brand new Proton Saga FL, the ultimate grand prize. Norashikin Nasruddin had the golden touch and chose the correct key, and won a brand new car.

Present to pick out the names of the lucky winners was Pehin Orang Kaya Hamzah Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Abdullah Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Hj Bakar, the Minister of Communications.

Times Square Property Manager Amal Majidah in her opening remarks stated that Times Squareis dedicated to “making the shopping mall a place for everyone”, a motto they adhere to.

“We are thankful for all the support you (shoppers and customers) have given us because without you, Times Square will not be here today. We have come a long way from when we started in 2010, and I am honoured to announce that we have started our renovationfor our Cineplex to cater to our customers’ request,” said theproperty manager.

Amal assured other lucky draw participants who were not picked that they still have another chance in the final grand draw in July,of which the grand prize is asemi-detached bungalow. The event was held to commemorate the Times Square shopping mall’s first anniversary celebration. Text by Anway Hj Rosly.

Such a big crowd last Sunday at Times Square. But after the 10 shortlisted were announced, half the crowd left #typical

Guest of honour picked 10 draws from the 900+ coupons

Mutu was one of the foreigners being shortlisted but he only received a consolation as he failed to unlock the door

Another disappointment as he failed to claim the car

Finally the winner of the Proton Saga FL.. Norashikin said two words – “Happy… Rezeki”.

The formalities as the mock key was handed over by the guest of honour

Comics to go

I stumbled across TigerLim’s post on the clearance sale on one of the longest comic store that has been existing in Brunei. Well, it’s famously known for Chinese comics and also Dragon Ball comics.

I was just talking about comics to my old time buddy, Yazid and both of us were collector of comics back in the 90s *lol* I remember I collected like at least 60 titles a month (a huge chunk of my allowance money) and back in the 90s, there are tons of places to buy comics in Brunei – Best Eastern, Bluestone (closed) and Bookers International.

However, for the past few years, comics have been on a downhill.. Best Eastern was always a collection point for me and I made used of the “Comic Preview” to pre-order my comics. Frankly speaking, I’ve lost that hobby in me and my love for comics just faded in the late 90s. Today, comic collectors can feel the significant drop in the interest of comics.

I also used to buy my comics in Singapore (Serene Centre) and a few more places but now there are hardly any stores that just simply sell comics. I haven’t done any further research on this but the trend is pretty obvious. Could it be because graphic novels are much cost effective? I notice bookstores such as Kinokuniya focuses more on graphic novels instead of comics.

Whatever it is, I’m pretty sad that comics have lost its presence despite their rise in popularity in movie adaptations. By the way, what comic are you? I’m a Marvel, Image and DC collector for your info 🙂

Mr. TigerLim was looking through the comics.. They have a huge collection of comics to choose from and they are selling it at a very low price. Image by TigerLim. Click image to read more

The bookstore is located at Hua Ho Gadong on the 1st floor

Since it’s on the topic of comics, I’m looking for a buyer for my collector items – Wildcats #1 Gold edition signed by Jim Lee and Pitt #1. I don’t know how much they are worth now *lol*
