YMRM donates to orphans


During Ramadhan, everyone is encouraged to do more good deeds to receive more blessings, and even companies and businesses step up their generosity during this time. YMRM, one of the well-known textile merchants in the Sultanate, hosted a sungkai event with the Mukim Sengkurong Consultative Council for senior citizens, orphans and poor families in Mukim Sengkurong yesterday.

The guest of honour at the event was RBAF Deputy Commander Pehin Datu Pekerma Jaya Brigadier General Dato Seri Pahlawan Md Tawih Abdullah, and the event began with the recital of Surah Al-Fatihah followed by a speech from the co-chairperson, Penghulu Mukim Hj Musa Hj Tahir. It was the first of two such sungkai events to accommodate the 203 orphans registered under Mukim Sengkurong.

A representative of the sponsor (YMRM), Abd Hamid Abas said in a speech that the founder of YMRM, Ramesh Jiwatran Bhawnani, saw this gesture as part of the company’s commitment to give back to society, and in recognition of the support the people of Brunei have given to YMRM Enterprise and Galleria YMRM over the last decade.

For YMRM, charitable deeds are not just seasonal gestures. The company has participated in many charitable events and has come forward to support both government and private institutions. To YMRM, its year-round charity activities are part of the company’s continuous corporate social responsibility (CSR) vision to help the country and its people.

This year, the charitable contributions from the company are more extensive than ever before. YMRM has committed to providing aid to eight villages in Mukim Sengkurong. Areas covered under the series of programmes on July 22, 29, 30 and 31, include Kg Jerudong, Kg Sengkurong A and B, Kg Kulapis, Kg Lugu, Kg Katimahar, Kg Tanjong Nangka and Kg Mulaut.

On the 30th and 31st July, YMRM will distribute food items to the less fortunate from the eight villages in Mukim Sengkurong, as well as arranging for visits to the homes of some of the recepients, in order to meet and understand their needs better.

YMRM’s Managing Director, Belly Narender JB, was further quoted that he is honoured to be given the opportunity to be able to contribute to such a good cause qand that YMRM will continue to play a stronger role in the community . He also called on members of the public to join the company in the good works, and support such activities.


Have you caught the Lego Bug yet?


Kevin Chua and Han Tien Siew, co-owners of Toy Santa at this afternoon Grand Opening of the store at Times Square

After a year of its existence online, Toy Santa has finally a phyiscal store for the convenience of his customers in selling Lego Sets, Lego minifigs and also toy figurines. It’s located in the heart of Times Square Shopping Complex on the same floor as Times Cineplex. Congratulations Han Tien Siew, a co-owner of Toy Santa, and I have bought a few items from him especially the zombies and Marvel minifigs from Lego.

Also with the support of the active local lego group, BULAT, it has helped boost its sales and further spread the awareness to the community and now it’s safe to say that there are more individuals catching the “Lego” bug and mind you most of them are adults 😀 According to Han, most of his customers are young adults and only a minority make up of children. This was definitely the opposite back in the old days and you should watch the history of Lego on YouTube. Quite interesting.

“We opened the shop due to the workload and the demand and it’s hard to cope because I have a primary job during the day, ” shared Han on why they opened up a store. Sometimes I wonder why all the sudden Lego became so popular worldwide. It could have been the fact that it started from the minifig series and suddenly people caught the “Lego Bug” before Lego start introducing Lego sets from Marvel, DC, Star Wars and so on.

This afternoon Toy Santa had its grand slam and they have discounts up to 15% and you can also become a Toy Santa VIP member if you spend a certain amount on a single receipt. Congratulations once again to Toy Santa on the grand opening. You can also catch them on Facebook here.

Lots of Lego Sets on display
