STGCC Pictures Part I


Ahhh… this is so overdue… I was supposed to upload these photos last week but never had the time to go around it. So yeah, I will be posting tons of pictures taken at this year’s STGCC 2013 which stands for Singapore Toy Game Comic Convention and I have to say that I was super impressed with the event. It was way better than last year and I will mark again in my calendar next year for STGCC.



The Iconic Trio


They have reached a milestone that will be tough for another repeat for next year’s WCOPA 2014. To recap, WCOPA stands for World Championships of Performing ARts (WCOPA) and we were fortunate to have Bruneians to represent the country in this year’s edition which took place earlier in July.

Our local heroes – Fakhrul Razi, Kevin Lo and Maria Grace Koh – brought some medals back during the competition and this shows that we do have talents to shine on a bigger stage. This time round there will be a WCOPA concert on the 21st September from 8am to 10pm at the Jerudong Amphitheater featuring all the said artistes.

Fakhrul will be belting 5 songs but the song I strongly felt is his original work “Senyuman Gelapmu” which has been playing on my CD player while I’m driving. It’s just a fantastic piece and boy, FR does have a lot under his sleeves. He hinted that a new album is slated for a November release and some of his songs will be downloadable on iTunes. Awesome!!

Kevin Lo had a fantastic outing from the WCOPA event. He didn’t just bagged medals but also scholarship offers from the agencies from the States. He will be performing in a 30-40 minute act from the “The Crucible” and an excerpt from “My Fair Lady”.

Last of all, Maria will be singing four songs including her original composition “You”. She’s another talent with such soothing vocals and she was a former swimmer, representing Brunei on a few occasions. Perhaps the unexpected exit from the Beijing Olympics was a blessing in disguise and I’m glad Maria is happy with her recent exposure to music and even having her own songs made available on iTunes.

For more inquiries, you can call 723 6243 or email info@ prismworksbrunei.com or follow @officialwcopabrunei on instagram. The event is organized by Prismworks Events Management.

Anyway, for those interested to join the audition for next year’s event, you can send in your submission of applications on the 21st September and send your application at the JP Amphitheater from 12pm to 6pm on the 21st September. The audition is open to actors, instrumentalists, vocalists, dancers and variety acts.

Who knows you will represent Brunei next year in WCOPA 😀


Late post: Open houses


LOL. Do bear with me with the number of photos that are being posted below. It was more of the pending photos that I have yet to post on RA and I’d better do it soon. So how was your Hari Raya this year compared to last year? Mine was just so-so and nothing much to shout about either.

Now Brunei is gearing up for the celebration of His Majesty’s birthday which will begin on 15th September and following that month will be the chairmanship of Brunei for the ASEAN Summit which will being mid October. So a lot of things to look forward to now for Brunei and there are quite many small events happening as well. I shall keep you posted on that.

For now, enjoy the pictures taken during my rounds of Hari Raya last August and early September.
