HRH Princess Masna visited AITI Pavilion yesterday at TechXpo 2012

Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) has a pavilion at the TechXpo 2012 which is launched today. As Brunei’s leading telecommunication regulator and ICT industry promoter, the AITI pavilion aims to promote public awareness regarding its roles, programmes and initiatives.

Public will be able to learn about AITI’s telecommunications regulatory role through its licensing, radio frequency planning and management and type approved exhibits. The regulatory function of AITI has helped to ensure that all telecommunication service providers operate within the assigned frequency to minimise interference. Meanwhile, licenced dealers and type approved equipments such as mobile phones are regulated by AITI to ensure consumers’ interest and safety are taken care of.

Companies and businesses can find out more about AITI Grant scheme, ICT Accredited Business (ICTAB) and ICT Competency Program at the AITI Pavilion.

On the international front, AITI will display information regarding Brunei ICT Award (BICTA), Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Award, ASEAN ICT Award and ASEAN CIO Forum, where AITI played a part in organising these prestigious events.

One key exhibit which will be showcase at the AITI Pavilion is the vast potential of the Fibre to the Home (FTTH) project. FTTH offers the high speed and large bandwidth which can cater to the media rich applications such as High Definition Interactive TV, Video-conferencing etc..

At the pavilion, public will be able to witness the high definition content on the Smart TV connected to the FTTH network.

As a forward looking organisation, AITI knows that its most valuable asset is the AITI staff. Testimonies from AITI staff will also be displayed where the public can learn more about the people and culture of AITI. AITI will also be listing job opportunities as it sets to expand next year.

Members of the public can look forward to a quiz cum lucky draw “AITI GUESS” and stand to win attractive prizes. The first prize will be iPad Mini, the second prize is a PS3 Slim 250GB and the third prize is a Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos.

Sneak preview of CLS 350 Shooting Brake


A first look on the new Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 Shooting Brake may create a puzzled thought amongst Mercedes aficionados and enthusiasts: is it a four-door coupe or an estate?

Unveiled ‘to the general public at the Jati Transport Gadong Showroom on Saturday, the glistening CLS 350 can be categorised as a defining and eclectic synthesis that blends the pragmatic comfort with a high performance of both motoring genres.

Roomy for five normal-sized adults, the CLS Shooting Brake has an imposing stance of a large sports car, with its long bonnet and roof sloping towards the rear end of the vehicle, this is one high-end car you would love parked in your garage.

One must remember that this is a Mercedes, and the brand is synonymous with luxury and fine performance-the CLS Shooting Brake is no exception.

The entry-level is the CLS 350 BlueEFFICIENCY that generates 306hp from its V6 3.5 litre engine, whilst its more powerful sibling engine the CLS 500 BlueEFFICIENCY produces a 408hp courtesy of its V8 biturbo 4.7 litre engine.

Or you can opt for the chest-pumping CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake that produces 525hp, with an equally powerful torque of 700Nm that is significant in fast overtaking with its tremendous accelerative thrusting power.

But why the name Shooting Brake? Daniel Loo, Marketing Executive of Jati Transport says the term comes from in the days of horse-driven carriages of the wealthy where the animal was strapped to keep it under control, hence the name Shooting Brake.

For more details on the CLS, make a visit to the Gadong Showroom today. This model is expected to be launched early next year.


Movember Tweet Up


Over 100 people attended the Movember Tweet Up at KFC Gadong Central on Wednesday, an event co-organised by Movember BN, BruneiTweet and KFC Brunei.

The symbol for “Movember” is the moustache, but the campaign goes much deeper than the presence of facial hair. It was meant to raise awareness about men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, depression and so on affecting millions of men across the globe.

The gathering was supported by B:Read, Muzikaliti, BT Youth Speak, SCOT Brunei, UBDFM, Instagram B.I.G Series, Counter Attack, Brunei Cosplayers and Brunei Darussalam AIDS Council among others.

Open to the public, those who attended received a free Krusher drink, sponsored by KFC Brunei.

“Movember”, derived from the combination of the words ‘Moustache’ and ‘November’, is a growing worldwide campaign involving the growing of moustaches throughout the month of November.

Delwin Keasberry as known as “BruneiTweet” on Twitter said, “In February 2012, I was involved in organising the first official tweet-up at the Airport Mall which saw over a hundred people from the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram online communities in Brunei gathered for a casual catch up.”

“The general feedback received was that it was great meeting people who we connect with online for the first time in person. Similarly, the idea behind the Movember Tweet Up was to engage the local community in a fun and social way to raise awareness about men’s health.”

Participants who attended the Movember Tweet Up were given a moustache-on-a-stick with “Man Up. Get Checked.” written on as a reminder to take matters of health seriously.

“Publicity for the event was broadcasted primarily via social media. It was heartening to see this exercise create discussions about men’s health online in the lead up to Movember Tweet Up,” Delwin added.

Zul-Fadly Osman, Founder, Movember BN shared that “Movember BN was founded last year with the hope of promoting men’s issues in general and it created quite a hype with the help of social media”.

“The idea of Movember is using the moustache for men, like for example the pink ribbon for breast cancer, which originated from Adelaide and is now an international worldwide movement.”

“More often than not, men are not known for sharing about their health issues. We cannot change that mind-set overnight but it is events like this that will slowly get our men in Brunei to be more open about their health,” Zul-Fadly shared.

Del Goh, General Manager, KFC Brunei highlighted that “KFC supports this campaign because of the awareness it brings”.

“I strongly believe in a balanced lifestyle one that enables us to indulge in the things that we love but also to be aware of the importance of healthy living,” he added.

“It’s the same reason why we keep running our 3-on-3 Street Basketball competition. The last one for this year is already underway, with the finals happening this weekend at Airport Mall once again.” Mei Fung Lee of The Brunei Times.
