Tiong Hwa CNY Celebration


It was yearly thing where His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam celebrated the Lunar New Year with the other members of the Royal Family and the Brunei Chinese community yesterday at Indera Samudra Grand Hall, The Empire Hotel and Country Club. Usually there will be a 1,000 in attendance for this special occasion and there were performances from students from respective schools and also a solo performance by the well known local singer Pei-Pei.

This time, I didn’t stay till the end as I had other events to attend. Enjoy the pictures though I didn’t take much either. Thumbs up to the organisers and also the performers for making the event running smoothly.


DPMM FC aiming for 3 points


Catch DPMM FC tonight against Hougang United at Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium

Tonight’s the night when DPMM FC take on Hougang United at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium and this is a must win for DPMM FC if they want to establish themselves as title contenders. Last season DPMM FC finished runner-up in the S•League competition and it’s an awesome feat, considering DPMM FC not being active competitively for two years.

It will also be a true testament on how the local players gel with the foreign mix. Hougang is a different outfit now compared to last season, though DPMM FC did score a double of them last season. Hougang United had a winning start to their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Courts Young Lions. DPMM FC only managed a valuable away point against strong opposition Home United.

Dino Drpic, DPMM FC latest signing import, who was nursing an injury should be back in the starting line-up. Santos, the only import to be re-signed by DPMM FC, is still recovering and he should be back in two to three weeks. DPMM FC will rely on Joao (Portuguese striker) and Shahrazen Said for goals. Pressure will be on Joao to deliver as many are expected for him to shine and build a strong partnership with Shahrazen.

So peeps.. Do catch DPMM FC tonight (kick off 8:15pm) and let’s give our support to our local club.. My prediction: 2-0 victory to DPMM FC.

Jimbo, Bobby and Shahrazen fired up for tonight’s game

Santos still recovering and he won’t be starting tonight

Yay!! My pass is ready 😀

BIBD Financial talk


Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad (BIBD) today, via their Wealth Management Unit (WMU), continued their series of Financial Literacy and Planning Talks in their efforts to raise financial awareness amongst the public. BIBD’s own Chartered Financial Consultant and qualified Islamic Financial Planner, WMU Manager, Hjh Isnora Minudin, delivered the financial literacy talk to some 200 new officers and staff from the Ministry of Finance and its Departments at the Theatre Hall of the Ministry of Finance Building.

The series progresses to a different audience such as students from the secondary schools, the public from the government as well as private sectors were addressed of the importance of financial planning. This was in order to maximise the reach of these talks as an awareness tool for the public to better their understanding of the requirements for proper financial planning for their financial well-being and security.

This initiative was also to promote the dissemination of information to the public regarding their awareness on financial literacy and planning. Hjh Isnora conveyed that financial planning is a process which helps to reach your dreams through proper financial management. She also shared a few tips in debt control and steps on how to start financial planning. With this awareness on how important financial planning is, one can be responsible without depending on others. She further stressed that every dream requires financial planning, including raising a family, getting their dream home, planning for their children’s education as well as their retirement, on top of helping to build their wealth over time.

Generally, financial planning is about preparing for our future, which can be done by making better informed money management decisions now. There are many tools available that assist in achieving the financial security that everyone desires. Therefore, there must be a shift in the way Bruneian think and highlight the importance of planning. BIBD aims to provide this by teaching, informing and providing solutions with simple explanations. As explained, being financially stable does not only mean having enough money today, but also for tomorrow and the years to come.
