Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

Kevin Gallen, Ian Pearce at football clinics

B-Mobile had a special treat for teenagers who were given the privilege to join the football clinic conducted by Kevin Gallen and Ian Pearce and both of them will compete in the EPL Masters Football Brunei Cup 2012 brought to you by B-Mobile at the Indoor Stadium.

Pearce highlighted that drills are very important as they will become better. Being passionate and enjoying football is also important ingredient to be a better player said Ian Pearce.

Nana aka Nurul Hainah Hj Jaafar, Acting General Manager and Head of Public Relations at B-Mobile, said that football being a universal sport is followed by many especially the young teens. She strongly believed that giving them this opportunity to see and interact with the EPL players is the least B-Mobile could do as presenting sponsro to the EPL Masters event.

All the youth who attended the clinic were also given tickets to watch EPL Masters tournament tonight. Awesome!!

Gala Dinner last night for EPL Masters

This is the final dinner of the B-Mobile EPL Masters Brunei Cup 2012 and my nights have been non-stop (need a break) and tonight I will be covering more events and of course, not forgeting the big night – EPL Masters 2012 tournament where defending champions EPL Masters won the tournament.

The dinner took place at the Indera Samudera Grand Hall and there was a special appearance by Steve Dawson who moderated the Q&A for Frank Lebeouf, Andy Cole and Robbie Fowler. Jeff Winter the former referee for EPL was hilarious with his comedic antics and he also conducted the auctions for charity.

There were performances by Relentless Entertainment to cap off the night.

Earth Day Clean Up Sunday

Earth Day Clean up tomorrow (Sunday) at Jerudong Beach

A total of 862 participants have confirmed their participation in the upcoming Earth Day Clean Up event at Jerudong Beach organised by the Beach Bunch in the organisation’s bid to ‘Mobilise the Earth’.

The number of participants who have registered exceeded the expectations of the group, said RizanLatif, president and co-founder of the non-government organisation, as he shared the goals and objectives behind the upcoming event and what his community is hoping to achieve as its outcome.

Rizan said they expected only about 500 participants to volunteer but with the increase in numbers, he was more anxious to see what they would be able to achieve.

“The theme behind Earth Day is ‘Mobilise the Earth’, how you do it is completely up to you. So ourmobilisation is obviously to gather as many volunteers as we can and do an activity together which ended up being the clean up,” he told The Brunei Times.

When asked whether this initiative could be related to the Bruneian tradition of ‘gotong-royong’, a local term used for numerous individuals uniting to achieve a common cause, the NGO president agreed by saying it possessed similar traits by reaching out towards the communities.

They have set out to collect and exceed 1.5 tonnes an amount collected from their last clean up initiative worth of litter, garbage or other harmful materials from the upcoming event which will cover an estimate of a 200 kilometre radius of Jerudong Beach.

The area will be divided into five zones which covers about two kilometres for the volunteers to clear within the given time.

 Rizan said that the first hour of the event will be focused on the clean up itself before segregating and weighing the collected amounts in the third hour and finally a certificate presentation ceremony for the volunteers.

He hoped that such an initiative would integrate the message of the Beach Bunch to stand against public littering which is harmful for the environment as well as be responsible in keeping not only the beaches clean but the Earth itself.

Amongst the known schools and organisations which will also be participating are Maktab Duli PengiranMuda Al-Muhtadee Billah College (Maktab Duli), Sekolah Tinggi Perempuan Raja Isteri (STPRI), TelisaiPrimary School, Seri Mulia Sarjana (SMS) School, Brunei Halal, Earth Hour, Radisson Hotel and various others.

The clean up will be held at 8am this Sunday, April 22 at Jerudong Beach. Those interested in joining in the clean up are to bring their own necessities such as garbage bags, gloves, sun block and others. Text courtesy of Amin Noor of The Brunei Times.
