Pusat Ehsan Bazaar kicks off

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

HSBC – Home loan needs

It’s happening today 😀

Pusat Ehsan Charity Bazaar 2012

Today’s the beginning of the Pusat Ehsan Charity Bazaar 2012 and it will be a three day weekend event with full of activities. They are tons of booths for the benefit of the public and it will be opened until 10pm… yes, the event will carry on until the evening.. So this will be the biggest Pusat Ehsan Charity Bazaar to date with a bigger venue, better location and longer hours.

A big thumbs up to the organising team as well as the volunteers involved. I’m sorry that I couldn’t be present for the event as I’m still outstation. There are plenty of prizes to win such as tickets to Universal Studio Singapore with air tickets included, a Macbook Pro, Samsung Galaxy Tab, iPad and many more.

There’s also a treasure hunt competition which begins on 2nd September (Sunday) and the costly competition will happen on Saturday 1st September from 6pm to 8pm. So make your way to Jubilee Park in town to enjoy what the bazaar has to offer. Have a great weekend, peeps!!

One of the big supporters for many years – British High Commission

The British High Commission is giving everyone a chance to pit themselves against Brunei’s Paralympian in a Wheelchair Challenge. Put the shot, seated in a wheelchair, and see how you shape up against the record set by Hj Shari, currently representing Brunei (in the Javelin event) at the London Paralympic Games. Win great prizes!

Entrants to the High Com Raffle stand to win a huge variety of prizes, from meals and delux accommodation donated by the Empire Hotel, to original works of art on Olympic themes (donated by members of the Brunei Art Forum who took part in the British High Commission’s “Spirit of the Games” competition), to an official Olympic back-pack signed by Brunei’s first female Olympian, Maziah.

Hundreds of second hand articles for sale at bargain basement prices: books, clothes, electrical goods, and more.

Come and see Team GB’s salute to the Paralympic Games in Jubilee Park and be part of London 2012. The party isn’t over. Go Shari!

Platinum Movie Suites

You can catch Platinum Movie Suites at Cathay and the nearest MRT is at Dhoby Ghaut

It was the first time that I experienced the Platinum Movie Suites at The Cathay. It was also the first time that I tried such experience in Singapore. I’ve tried the ones at Golden Village Cinemas in KL. I kinda prefer this one at Cathay. They have a premium lounge before you can watch your movie. But it doesn’t make sense for me unless I have a group of people to come along with me. I was watching the movie alone yesterday and furthermore I was 10 minutes late for my movie (which is very rare hahaha).

It costs me $28 a week day ticket but for a weekend it will be at $38 per seat (Friday to Sunday). It’s not a bad fare but if I was to catch a movie at Platinum Movie Suites, then I would have to predict that it will be an awesome movie and of course, I will have to get my prediction meter on Rottentomatoes before I made my choice.

Unfortunately the only movies showing were Expendables 2 (which I have caught) and Step Up Revolution (which I didn’t have high expectations). So of course, I chose Step Up Revolution as it’s not showing yet in Brunei and I’m also a fan of dance movies.

Step Up Revolution. Hmmmm… I was already late for the movie but the great thing was I didn’t miss much and plus I was more looking forward to experience the comfort at Platinum Movie Suites rather than the flick itself. I love the fact that dance is about competition and the fourth edition of Step Up had a change format – convincing one to change their minds through the essence of dance. It just sounds to cliche and the dance sequences were nothing to shout about. It was a step down for me. Sorry folks. Verdict: 6/10 and 9/10 for Platinum Movie Suites.

Hmmm I was disappointed that there was only one counter that was active. I had a mini long queue and I was pretty late for my movie. Furthermore, I thought there will be privilege for those who booked online too #fail

Awesome seats I must say…. Me likes!!! Image from Indez Design

You can even have the lights on and call for assistance if you want to order some refreshments

Ahh… such a disappointment Step Up Revolution…

They have blankets as well and good thing I didn’t fall asleep

Bunbun and Bumbum kinda snuck in to catch the movie too

I only realised that there’s also a counter booth at the ground floor of Cathay *doink*
