The New B-Class

Catch the new B-Class at Gadong showroom

Price wise this is still a pretty affordable. The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class meets and exceeds customers seeking for premium quality and this is also good for a family car too.

* New standard and Dual Clutch transmission for all variants
* Attractive new pricing with class leading safety features as standard
* Combined fuel consumption as low as 6.2L/per 100 kilometres

You can check out the B200 in display now at Jati Transport showroom. It has a new four-cylinder petrol engine featuring a direct petrol injection and a turbocharger that produces an output of 156 horsepower and new assistance systems, the front-wheel-drive car also rings in a new technological era for compact cars from Mercedes-Benz.

Perhaps one of the best features is the Collision Prevention Assist which is pretty technical but this is a great warning system for drivers to be alert of possible obstacles on the road which the help of Brake Assist for a precise possible braking response.

What I also enjoyed with the B 200 is the Active Parking Assist. So let’s say there’s a space for parallel parking, the B 200 will automatically parked by itself without you controlling it. We did a quick test drive last weekend and I was quite impressed by it. And this is only done by a press of a button. Awesome!!

The price like I said it’s pretty competitive and affordable. Jati Transport also offers attractive finance and you could have a chance to win a new SLK AMG with BND 120,000 with a purchase of any new Mercedes-Benz passenger car, Vito or Viano.

Aziz Harun in Bandung, Indonesia

Indonesia, for the first time, hosted the most exciting and interactive arts festival in Southeast Asia; the Marketplace of Creative Arts, on the 14th – 15th April 2012. The two-day arts festival will feature international artistes from more than 13 countries around the ASEAN region who will showcase their talents and creativity that have made them trail-blazers in their own right.

The 4th Marketplace with the theme ‘Design Nation: Carving Creative Spaces’ was held at the Cihampelas Walk, Bandung Indonesia and jointly organised by the WIEF Foundation and the Bandung Creative City Forum (BCCF). The event was graced by Yth Ibu Mari Pangestu, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Indonesia.

“By hosting the Marketplace of Creative Arts in Bandung, I hope it will soon become a center of creative talent, a platform for young minds to share ideas and experiences and position it as a must attend event for all investors and funding of the arts” said Yth Ibu Mari Pangestu, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Indonesia.

“By hosting the Marketplace in Bandung we are building a platform to bridge the artist community from around the region, promote youth on the world stage and to use the arts as a tool for community development.” said YBhg Tun Musa Hitam – Chairman, WIEF Foundation. This year’s Marketplace will have art exhibits, performances, film screenings, creative business forums, graffiti art, contests, and other exciting activities for artistes, visitors and the general public alike.

Over 40 talented artists and presenters will be performing in CiWalk Bandung and they hail from Indonesia, Singapore, India, Thailand, Myanmar, Australia, Japan, Cambodia, Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, Laos and Philippines. These talents come from all facets of the creative industry – be it singer/songwriters, contemporary dancers, filmmakers, fusion bands, musicians, poets, ensembles, instrumentalists, dance troupes, percussionists, art entrepreneurs and traditional performers.

So guess who represented Brunei?? He’s not other than our local young celebrity Aziz Harun who is one of the most promising singer too. He was invited to perform in the event and that’s definitely a privilege for someone like Aziz Harun to be part of the event. He was accompanied by his manager Bahzi Damit and his family and cousins came to support his gig in Bandung. Images courtesy of Bahzi Damit.

Different concept DQ at Airport Mall

This is the 9th Dairy Queen (DQ) outlet in Brunei and the location is at The Airport Mall. Gracing the opening was the guest of honour His Excellency Daniel Shields, Ambassador of the United States to Brunei Darussalam and the owners of Olive Tree Company, Mr. Johnny Liew and Mrs. Evelyn Liew.

The opening of the 9th branch also had some fun activities for the kids such as bouncers and performances by the DQ staff. DQ also had a special promotion to mark the opening by giving away 50 pint of ice-cream and 50 limited edition key chains to the first 100 customers.

So what’s different about this particular DQ outlet than the rest? Well, now they have a digital display menu on the flat screen and they are also animated too and the other great thing is that the software of the menu is linked up to the their franchisor in the United States. This is the first technology used in Asia and Brunei is the first to use it.

The outlet also has a live display where the bakery chef can be seen decorating the DQ cakes and this is also a new concept for DQ.

For your info, OTC has manages Pizza Hut (Brunei) and it is rumoured that the their next outlet will be opened in a few weeks’ time at the Airport Mall.
