Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

Let’s join CommunicAsia 2012

The Authority for Info-communication Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) will be participating in the prestigious CommunicAsia 2012 which will be held from 19 to 22 June 2012 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. A briefing was conducted at AITI last Friday (14 January 2012) and 28 companies from the ICT Industry attended. AITI’s Assistant Chief Executive for International Relation, Wallace Koh Hoe Aik, kicked off the briefing with a welcome remark. Mars Enterprise and BruGPS then shared their success stories from their participation in CommunicAsia 2011 last year. Ms Claudine from Singapore Exhibition Services Pte Ltd, organizer for CommunicAsia 2012, was on-site to brief the ICT companies with regard to the venue and preparation for the event.

CommunicAsia 2012 will feature a comprehensive myriad of key and emerging technologies from backhaul network, system integration to software and applications to end users. AITI is confident that CommunicAsia 2012 will provide an excellent opportunity for our local ICT companies to get maximum exposure to potential buyers and to strike partnerships and deals. Local ICT companies can also leverage this event to establish business networks and alliance with prominent ICT players from all over the world.

DPMM FC 2 Chiang Rai 1

All the goals were scored in the first half. DPMM FC thriumphed over Chiang Rai United, a club from Thailand, in a charity match where the proceeds will go to the humanitarian fund for Thailand and Cambodia flood funds.

First of all, congratulations to DPMM FC on their victory last night but sadly there were no points to win as it was only a warm-up match and this is a great build-up to the upcoming S.League season which kicks off in February 2012.

Vjeran Simunic’s tactic paid off as he deployed three strikers – Shahrazen Said, Rodrigo Grahl and Osman Bashiru in the first half. It took them a while to get the fluidity of the game and Chiang Rai United are no pushovers too as they have seven import players at their disposal.

After a 0-0 draw last Monday, I’m pretty sure there will be some goals in the match and it was the Thai club that drew first blood. DPMM FC were caught off guard as they were complaining to the referee. While being distracted, Chiang Rai quickly passed the ball to the unmarked Chiang Rai No. 40 Wasan Nathasan who raced to the keeper and slotted the ball between the legs of Wardun for a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute. DPMM FC and the fans were furious that the goal was allowed but the referee maintained his calm despite being confronted by DPMM FC players.

It was not long before DPMM FC sparked to life. The fans were able to witness the pace of Osman Bashiru who drew many fouls from his opponents. I believed he was the most fouled player on the pitch *lol* DPMM FC leveled the score when Grahl was rammed (or the term I would like to use “speared”) by goalkeeper Arthit Thanusorn in the box and the Brazilian cooly slotted the penalty kick to make it 1-1.

What I’m impressed are not only the import players but the re-emergence of Shahrazen who lost his scoring touch back in 2009. His glancing header connected well from an excellent whipping cross from captain Rosmin Kamis (Bobby) and the keeper had no chance to save it in the 26th minute. Though he was substituted by half-time, the goal will bring some confidence back to the striker who have won many hearts of DPMM FC supporters. The substitution was made because Shahrazen told the coach that he felt some pain on his ankle and Simunic was happy that he was honest with the injury.

The second half was slightly a let down compared to the first. There were some lovely exchanges between Grahl and Subhi at one point and Osman was one of the busiest man as he was fouled at many occassions. What I noticed about DPMM FC was that they couldn’t capitalised on the number of freekicks outside the box. I believed they had like 6 or 7 opportunities but their efforts hardly troubled the keeper. There is a lot of homework to be done despite the narrow victory. It could have been a 2-2 draw if it wasn’t for the heroics of Azwan Salleh (Param) who cleared a goal-bound effort in the dying minutes of the match.

All in all, the fans were ecstatic and we all had fun too. I can’t wait for the S.League season to kick off soon. This was a great teaser of what to expect at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium in weeks to come.

The captain of Chiang Rai didn’t look happy after the match

The Thai fans were very happening last night. Awesome!!

One fan managed to get one of the shirts from Chiang Rai players

Stefano, the head coach of Chiang Rai (left) was in sombre mood as his team failed to beat DPMM FC

Simunic was unhappy with the official with some of the decision. Ironically, this was taken right after Grahl scored for DPMM FC

Simunic said that it was like a Hyundai beating a Mercedes-Benz (talking of the Chiang Rai’s superiority with 7 import players)

Grahl was in super high mode after scoring from the spot

A trademark flip from Shahrazen after he scored the winner. Let’s hope the injury was not caused by his celebration flip… hmmmm.

I find this picture amusing as if there was some foreplay action going on *lol*

The first time the medics were on their feet but they ran for nothing

Yussof did well at the back and he acknowledged his friend from the stands

Osman Bashiru will be one of the marked man in S.League. He was the most fouled person on the pitch last night

The heart beat of the DPMM FC crowd and they play the “samba” through the match. Amazing energy!!

The SuperFriends came in numbers to support DPMM FC

The friendly match was also for a good cause. It was a great crowd too.
