The Ugly Truth


RA says Yea… the Ugly Truth is back.. There have been many, many unfortunate incidents in Brunei and I just dunno where to start. Nonetheless I’m still grateful that we are still living in a much more peaceful environment as compared to other countries. Let’s hope all these incidents are just phases as they have been happening from day to day basis.

The mystery of the “cement case” is still under investigation where one Malaysian national was found dead. The authorities are working on the case and it will be concluded in a few weeks’ time. The cause of death is still being determined.

Then recently a robbery took place at The Mall, Gadong which involved two staff (from a popular franchise food outlet) being injured. There was a crime scene tape outside The Mall but it only lasted less than 24 hours. The case is still under investigation.

The following day, another tragic news happened. A lady lost her life in the vicinity of Jerudong and some said the elephant, residing in the JPCC Housing Area, might lead to her death. Yet another unfortunate incident and the actual cause of it is still undetermined based on reports on the paper. My deepest condolences to the family.

Last night, two more shocking news where one is on high alert as the respective personnels are in search for two representatives from UBD who went missing on Sungai Balung, near Tawau, Sabah. Apparently four representatives of the 29 on boat fell into the river but only two were rescued. As of now, the search still continues for the missing ones. I pray for the safety of those missing.

In other news, a car caught on fire before midnight near the airport highway. News were also spreading like wildfire on whatsapp, twitter and facebook. I heard there was no casualty but I can’t confirm on that. According to a witness, he couldn’t see anyone around the scene but there were a pile of cars parked by the road to witness the fire itself. It also caused a queue along the highway too.

So peeps, these are some of the unfortunate incidents that have happened in the country (and some in the span of a few days). I hope the slide won’t keep going down in terms of unfortunate situations. As for now, I hope for the search of the missing representatives will be successful and thank you to His Majesty’s Government for allowing to send five officers from UBD and the families of the 4 representatives to Sabah through Royal Brunei Airlines BI 829 last night and thank you to Royal Brunei Airlines for the convenience and accessibility.

For a happier note, I’m happy that b•mobile communications is back in business. The petition of winding-up the mobile telco that was initiated by TelBru in early February has been dismissed. And the new interesting development is the Ministry of Finance which is now involved in the management and overseeing the operations of b•mobile communications. MOF have also appointed an Executive Manager to play a role in b•mobile communications day-to-day operations.

After going through some tough times, it’s safe to say that b•mobile is back and I salute to the associates of b•mobile who have been there through thick and thin and have that self-belief in the company through difficult times. Do check out their upcoming promotion soon and I shall keep you posted on that too.

I still have a few things that I would like to express but I’m just gonna give it a rest for now. It’s not easy to just dig deep in my thoughts and express what I feel like saying. Right now my mind is pretty clouded and my eyes are drooping too *lol* and I have a two hour drive in the next few hours or so for the upcoming 8th Belait Travel Fair. I need my beauty rest and that’s it for now from me 😀

DPMM FC 3 Hougang United 3


What a goal by Hougang’s Shotton late in the first half. He canceled Shahrazen’s opening goal. Half time score 1-1.

The crowd wasn’t as much but it’s not bad for the first home game of the season. Mind you for all ticket holders, you might stand a chance to win the grand prize which is the Volkswagen Polo sponsored by Maju Motors Sdn. Bhd.

The medics on the job for the match

The personal medic for the Singapore clubs

This glancing header from Shahrazen made it 3-1 for DPMM FC in the 61st minute. However, the celebration was shortlived.

I never realised the corner flags are in DPMM FC colours

What a save by the defender!! He was on the goal line but some argued that he used his arm to prevent the ball past the goal line. I thought it was courageous of him to quickly dive down and deflected the ball for a corner. It could have been 4-1 to DPMM FC.

This was a heavily contest match between the two teams

At this time, Ivan was fouled in the box and a penalty was given. Hougang had already pulled back a goal to 3-2.

The foul in the box warranted a yellow card to a Hougang defender and apparently both coaches weren’t impressed with some of the decisions

DPMM bench was shocked that Shahrazen missed a penalty and also a chance to claim his first hat-trick of the season. Shahrazen’s effort was saved and it could have been 4-2 for DPMM FC. Two minutes later, Hougang’s Sulaiman scored the equaliser 3-3. Wow!!

The referee consulted the linesman and gave the penalty to DPMM FC again for the second time

Captain Meng of Hougang United was sent off for the foul on DPMM FC’s Joao in the box

The peace maker tried to control the reaction from his team mates of Hougang towards the referee’s decision

Since Shahrazen missed the earlier penalty, Ivan was given the opportunity. However, his effort was saved by Fadhil. In this picture, Ivan refused to shake hand with a Hougang player (smiling) before the penalty kick and perhaps that changed their luck when Fadhil saved his effort.

Though DPMM FC’s new import player Joao scored his first goal, it remains to be seen if he is the right man to partner Shahrazen

Late in the game, Joao was fouled in the box but his appeal for a penalty wasn’t successful

I took this shot because I was amazed by the moon in the distant *lol*

Simunic was the unhappier of the two and he blamed the referee for not giving more penalties. Hougang’s coach was more than happy to earn a point.
