DPMM FC on cloud nine

It was one way traffic for DPMM FC as Wardun, DPMM FC’s keeper was hardly troubled in goal. Goal scorers were Shahrazen, Basiru, Santos and substitute Helmi. Jozef Kaplan of Geylang United scored the consolation through a penalty.

The result means that DPMM FC are at the peak of the table with 3 wins and 1 draw while Geylang Utd suffered their 4th loss in a row (Is it their worst run in S.League history?). Next game will be against Harimau Muda on Thursday 22nd March at Jalan Besar Stadium, Singapore. The match is rumoured to be shown live on Astro Arena channel.

Coach Simunic was smiling after the final whistle and he was proud of his players’ performance on the pitch. “I’m very happy that we are on top (even if for a day) and now we have to focus on Harimau Muda next week. We made one little mistake and when the game was 2-1, anything can happen in football. I feel sorry for Wardun tonight because it could have been a clean sheet.”

Great job once again on DPMM FC on topping the table after four games. Almost two years of hiatus, this is considered a remarkable comeback for DPMM FC in the S.League.

The motivational “cuddle” before kick off

Simunic is always animated on the pitch

He’s a true supporter for HBT U-21 and DPMM FC. He never missed a single match. Awesome!

Santos celebrated his first goal for the club

Don’t forget that Royal Brunei Airlines will be flying daily to Melbourne starting next week 😀

Osman Basiru is in great scoring form but he tends to slow down to help back the midfielders

A happy Simunic expressed his joy as DPMM FC top the S.League table

Reading culture in Brunei

Click image to enter survey. Your participation is greatly appreciated

Hello readers of RA. Did you know the government is running a survey on the “Reading Culture of Brunei Society”? I only became aware of this recently and they have started doing a nationwide survey to all Brunei citizens from the age of 9.

The objectives of the survey are to understand in depth the reading habits and behaviours of readers; to identify the cause and effect of reading deficiency among readers and to assess impact of reading to academic development and to assess the impact of other media to reading habit.

This survey is open to all Bruneians until 31st May 2012. The public can access to the online survey from this website www.readingculture.gov.bn. The questionnaires are available in both English and Malay.

Featuring Southern Cobra & Madpaintball

[Paintball report from Aammton Alias] Come rain, sunshine, hail and snow, we will continue to play paintball, whilst continue our struggle for Paintball accepted in Brunei, since 2004 ! The team Southern Cobra of Brunei along with the Madpaintball group continues to organise events outside of Brunei every month in Labuan. The aim is to prepare as many teams to play professional international Tournament Paintball.

We do our best to see the positive side of our sad paintball situation.. only the Dedicated continue to play. Southern Cobra has fielded teams in the Nation Cup 2004, World Cup Asia 2005 and World Cup Asia 2006. After a long break, we managed to play in the the last World Cup Asia 2011 in Langkawi. World Cup Asia 2011 attracted 140 teams from all over the world.

The team had just participated in the Paintball Asia League Series also known as PALS, which is a well established international paintball league series in Asia, where teams from all over the world hone their skills and measure themselves against those who are determined to win. The last tournament PALS Thailand was 1st – 4th March 2012.

These games are fast (6 minutes for two games) and are not to be confused with ‘woodsball or jungle games’ . Every team needs 5 players plus up to 2 substitutes, 2 pit crew whose roles are to prepare the players and equipment before and after the games & a coach to give directions from the designated area during the gameplay. There is a lot of shouting of codes and signals between players and coaches. The amount of tactics varies so differently between the various teams.

To watch the games itself gives a euphoric rush of adrenaline, so why don’t you imagine playing it. Some of the new Southern Cobra players had tremor hands before their games!

Southern Cobra during Thomas Taylor clinic

The team had a wonderful opportunity to train before hand with Thomas Taylor who is a professional paintball in one of the best teams in the world called XSV. During this clinic, our team along with a Canadian team was taught some of the secrets of playing tournament paintball.

Paintball doesn’t stop, it lives us and we live it. As soon as we arrive back from Bangkok, a different set of players from the Southern Cobra team went to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah to play in an international regional paintball tournament called the Sabah Paintball Series, reaching the quarterfinals. Southern Cobra had sent two teams this time instead of fielding one team. The whole event was about coordinating resources. We were quite happy to receive a Singaporean guest player ‘Irwan’ who turned out to help us with his in depth knowledge of tournament paintball and tactics.

Sabah Paintball Series Broadcast will be on this Sunday (18/03/2012) on TVI ASTRO Channel 180 6.30pm. We hope to send at least 3 Brunei teams to the World Cup Asia 2012, Langkawi ( 8 – 11th November 2012).
