In an effort to assist in streaming potential agenda in Brunei’s successful biodiversity conservation and sustainable development in accordance with the nation’s Chairmanship for the next Asean Summit in 2013, the Republic of Korea, Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources, have gathered experts to speak at the Asean Korean Biodiversity Cooperation seminar.

The seminar, which is set to be held from tomorrow to Friday, presents an avenue for the expert panelists to exchange views and experience, and facilitate scientific research efforts on diversity among related countries.

Speaking to the local media yesterday was Mr Sung Wook Jo, Counsellor and Deputy Chief of Mission from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Brunei Darussalam.

He highlighted that during the Asean-Korean Commemorative Summit in Jeju 2009, His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam has proposed that the Kuala Belalong Field Centre be utilised as a venue for environment research. In view of this, Brunei and the Republic of Korea have agreed to undertake a joint project to convene at the Asean-Korea Biodiversity Cooperation Seminar.

He said the seminar will further promote the public’s awareness on biodiversity of Asean and Borneo Island in particular. The seminar will carry the theme ‘Current and Future Challenges to Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Development in the Asean region.’

“The seminar will focus on talks given by experts and policy makers from the Republic of Korea and Brunei as well as other Asean countries,” said Mr Sung, before adding that at the end of the seminar, a ‘policy-oriented report’ based on seminar presentations and discussions will be tabled. This is to facilitate implementation on biodiversity conservation and sustainable development, he said.

The Minister of Industry and Primary Resources, Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Utama Dato Seri Setia Awg Hj Yahya bin Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Hj Bakar is expected to deliver a keynote speech during the opening ceremony for the seminar tomorrow. And yes, the seminar is open to the public at The Core UBD tomorrow in the morning (Wednesday).

The experts include Dr Jin Han Kim, Director of Research Cooperation Division and Dr Byoung Yoon Lee, the Director of Plant Resources Division, both from the National Institute of Biological Resources. Also expected to deliver their papers are experts from the Korean Environment Institute and the e-Government Innovation Centre (eG.Inc) at UBD, as well as experts from the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.

The proposed venue for the seminar will be at The Core, UBD and the Kuala Belalong Field Studies Centre, Temburong District. Text courtesy of Aziz Idris of Borneo Bulletin.

We had lunch at a Korean Restaurant called Silla. It’s highly recommended.

Aziz served us as well. Nice t-shirt btw bro haha

New Audi A4 impresses

What sexy eyes the new Audi A4 has….

Last Saturday, TCY Motors Sdn Bhd officially lanuched the latest A4 Sedan and Avant model at Radisson Hotel. In my opinion, I love the Avant model because of its design.

Presence during the launch were Teng Ching Ying, Chairman of TCY Motrors Sdn Bhd and Helmut Domas, Acting German Ambasssador to Brunei. The welcoming remarks was made by TCY’s After-Sales Manager Francis Chan and he reminded the guests that all Audi cars have a 5-year warranty and because of its regional support system, it allows Brunei to have a much quicker response on any matter regarding Audi vehicles.

A few good reasons to get the new A4 – a lighter engine than previous model, 28% more torque output, lesser petrol consumption than previous models and reduction of CO2 emissions.

For more information about the new Audi A4 Sedan and Avant, call 244 2333 for the Kiarong showroom or 239 0725 for the Lambak showroom. You can also follow their updates on Facebook.

It’s happening tomorrow (Wednesday)

“Embracing the creative evolution”, the theme for this year’s Think Big Innovate Forum, will put the spotlight on creative arts and multimedia as the next most important tools that will spur entrepreneurship and innovation in Brunei.

“We’ve been doing this for five years now, and each year we have central themes; cloud computing, social media, mobile applications, innovation, and this year’s edition, we’ll be focusing on the advent of multimedia and creativity,” said Delwin Keasberry, the programmes manager at Asia Inc Forum, organisers of this year’s conference.

This year’s theme coincides with the country’s recent initiatives to promote creativity amongst the youth and encourage more local businesses to venture into the creative industry, he said.

Such initiatives include the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports’ latest drive towards supporting creative industry development, The Brunei Economic Development’s creative arts facility (CRAFT) and the iCentre’s Think Big iMMerse Challenge.

“We set the trend before things get hot or become mainstream. We believe that in the next few years, for corporations, organisations, NGOs and SMEs, the digital multimedia engine behind marketing will be one of the things that will be used more and more,” said Keasberry.

Peter Pan Musical

This musical will be a good catch indeed

Seri Mulia Sarjana School on its 20th Anniversary is proud to present Peter Pan The Musical a school production by arrangement with Samuel French and International Theatre and Music (IT&M London) on the 25th of November 2012 at 7:45pm. The musical will be staged at the Jerudong Park Ampitheatre and ticket prices are $15, $35 and $100 available at all Seri Mulia Sarjana School Front Counters.

A well-known and much appreciated musical, Peter Pan the Musical is presented by professional and amateur productions worldwide and is popular for their characters – Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael, Captain Hook and his sidekick Smee, Tiger Lily, the Lost Boys, pirates and of course TinkerBell.

Peter Pan the Musical will take us to Neverland where children are exposed to endless imagination and creativity, two things that Seri Mulia Sarjana School persistently instills amongst its students as they serve as foundations of numerous possibilities.

This production is being staged by Seri Mulia Sarjana School as commemorative of the school’s 20th Anniversary Celebration. This is also an avenue for the school to expose its students to the performing arts and most importantly to involve the whole school in a community outreach for the benefit of Pengiran Muda Mahkota Al-Muhtadee Billah Fund for Orphans. Proceeds from the Peter Pan copyright will also go to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

Join them in this event and be a part of our community outreach.
