DPMM FC vs Hougang tonight

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

DPMM vs Hougang United FC tonight

Last week, Brunei DPMM FC beat Woodlands Wellington FC to reclaim top spot in the S-League and tonight they will face another tricky opponent Hougang United FC with a 3-2-6 record so far in the S-League.

Expectations are high on DPMM FC as they are yet to be beaten at their home ground. It’s also very rare that Brunei dropped points at home too. The only points they dropped was against Tampines Rovers where they drew 2-2 back in February. Ever since then, DPMM FC have won 5 successive matches at home.

Let’s hope for another comfortable win for DPMM FC or perhaps what is more important is the 3 points. Good luck, DPMM FC.

New friends, new doors

In just a matter of few days (or even hours), we made new friends and the friendship bridge was instantly built with friends coming from all parts of the world. It has been such an amazing week and a big shout to Cris who celebrated her birthday last night at Bombay Palace.

Craving for the S III?

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

The S III finally announced

Rano says this week has been interesting in many ways. My sense of judgment seems to get the better of me. Well, in the first place, I shouldn’t be judging anyone for that matter but I’ve slowly became more aware that I’m still judging though I thought I didn’t. I only found this through my reaction on certain things and it showed that I was having different expectations on him/her. This, for me, it’s still a growing process. We may think it that way but are we actually living it (is another question).

This was also another great few days as I saw a few familiar faces taking that extra courage to learn something new and I was in that position a few years ago and the feeling was rewarding for me though there were lots of fears feeding me prior to the course. The leadership/self development course I took opened up a whole new world and perspective for me. I also ended up finding my best friends along the way and I never felt more grateful in my years because of this.

This week, I’ve also picked up my jogging training which I’ve neglected for the past week because of my traveling period. Then again, I did promise to myself that I would jog when I was in Singapore which I ended up didn’t. Hence CR won’t believe me if I want to jog the next time I travel to Singapore :p The HSBC #walkruncycle2012 is happening in two weeks’ time and I’m getting my fitness in time for the run. I’ve yet to try the 12km training as I’m slowly building up my endurance by having 6km runs to start off with. My goal is to complete the 11.5km race that I’ve signed up and it will be the first time that I’ve entered in a longer route. My previous run was 5km at the SCB’s “Run for a Reason”.

So the latest Samsung S III was announced last night.. I couldn’t be bothered to wake up in the wee hours for it. They were rumours saying it could be the iPhone killer. But after going going through the features, specs and all, it’s merely an upgrade of the popular SII and they have also included the S Voice which is similar to the Siri. The camera boasts 8 megapixels and it uses a Quad-Core process too. The S III surprisingly have been compared to the impressive HTC One X which also have been getting rave reviews. Reading from the comments too that many weren’t happy with the design and the “plastic” feel of it. But nonetheless it’s the most power S series so far but it will be exaggerating to say the S III is the iPhone killer for now.

Before I end my post, I’ve been receiving a few inboxes on my FB with regards to a bully incident from students alike. This is not the first time such incident has happened and I remember the Chung Hwa video went viral two years ago and it created a lot of controversy among the community. Recently, a boy was attacked by a group of boys and the victim was helpless as all he could do was shielding himself with his arms from the punches and kicks. I ain’t gonna post the video on my web but this is something that needs to be addressed by schools and parents alike on bullies and what needs to be done. I’m pretty sure the related schools won’t be happy to see their names being published and I hope the MOE is aware of this situation and come up with a guideline or framework so such violence can be avoided in the future.

Anyway, have a greet weekend peeps!! I’m looking forward to it 😀
