TravelMania 2013 next weekend


First it’s the Consumer Fair at BRIDEX. Next weekend will be the Travelmania 2013 which will be one of the events to look forward too. Also part of this year’s Travelmania 2013 is the 10th Abacus Holiday Travel Fair and this usually means one thing – cheap and affordable fairs.

As Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) said, “This is the right place to plan your dream vacations.” All in one spot. At the Travelmania 2013. Another great thing that he highlighted is the upcoming carrier which is Boeing 787 Dreamliner and this is something I couldn’t wait either.

The signing ceremony took place yesterday between the partners and related airlines at the Airport Restaurant. There were signings of MoU between Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of RB and Dato’ Jack Ting, Managing Director of Cityneon Displays & Construction Sdn Bhd, Irene Soon, General Manager of Abacus Brunei Sdn Bhd and Zurina Abdul Samad, Director of Tourism Malaysia.

Another batch of MoU signings were between Abacus and their partners. The signatories were Irene Soon, General Manager of Abacus Brunei Sdn Bhd and Ti Eng Hui, Deputy General Manager Retail Banking of Baiduri Bank; Zainal Abidin Sulaiman, District Manager (Brunei) of Malaysia Airlines as well as Alvin Leong, Acting General Manager Brunei, Sabah & Sarawak at Singapore Airlines.

Can they top 33,000 visitors last year? Tourism Malaysia apparently will have a bigger presence because of their “Visit Malaysia Year 2014” and they will be will be presenting Malaysian Cultural Performance, Sarawak Traditional Music – Sape, The Tank & Batik Demonstration, Malaysia Contemporary Art Tourism and Lego Display by Brunei Usergroup Lego & Technic (BULAT).

So peeps!!! Book your dates next weekend.. The earlier the better 😀

Red Bull Dodgeball kicks off



The tournament has begun and it kicked off or literally “throw off” last evening at the BRIDEX as part of the ASEAN Year Consumer Fair 2013. There are 22 teams that are taking part in the tournament with 12 female teams and 10 male teams but I am expecting this competition to grow in interest in the future because it’s a newly introduced sport in Brunei.

Perhaps the novelty aspect of the game has made it easier for the locals to accept and the most importantly having fun in that sport. I know of a friend who can’t enough of dodgeball and craving more of it :p

So far the hot favourites for the ladies are Thunderbirds and Gladiators while for the men, Easyway looks solid with 2 wins but the best match so far was between EXCO and Cosmo Men B. There will be no matches tonight on Thursday and the tournament continues tomorrow evening. Good luck to all the players and keep entertaining the audience with your dodging skills.

Some of the results last night:

Thunderbirds 8 Cosmo Women A
Smokin’ Aces 1 UBD Meatballs 7
Elemonators 2 UBD Queens
Gladiators 7 Cosmo Women B 0

Easyway 4 SVNR Power
Boxx DT 0 Easyway 8

Smokin’ Aces vs UBD Meatballs

Before every match, a briefing will be done. This is good to remind players especially since this sport is still pretty new to many

UBD Meatballs won their first game comprehensively

The only to get eliminated is when a ball hits any part of your body or clothing unless you catch the ball

Easyway vs SVNR Power

SVNR Power in action

SVNR outnumbered by Easyway

Dodging the attacks when solo can be difficult and you can only get back your team player one by one if you catch the ball

Cosmo Women B vs Gladiators

In every round, this is how the game starts

Easyway vs Boxx DT

You can grab as many balls as you want to attack

This guy has a good throw
