DPMM FC run wild

on the Lions

It was a one-sided affair last night at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium as DPMM FC came back to winning ways in the expense of Courts Young Lions, Singapore U-23 team. The odds were heavily against the Young Lions as they have yet to register a win in five games prior to the match.

The drizzle didn’t cause much problem for DPMM FC’s gameplay but it didn’t turn out well for the visitors who let in 6 goals and handed DPMM FC, one of their biggest victory in the S•League.

Steve Kean was already wary of the Under-23 and he felt it will be a challenging match as the Lions were out there to prove a point. They stole a point at Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium last season so they would want to better their efforts.

However, the quality of DPMM FC was too much for the depleted Lions who were missing two key players.

Young Lions had a shocking lead through Sherif El-Masri in the 23rd minute through a deflection and that somehow was the final threat that the Young Lions had on DPMM FC’s Wardun Yussof.

Roy O’Donovan, DPMM FC marquee player, scored his first goals on home soil with a brace despite nursing an injured thumb. His team mate Rodrigo Tosi scored a brace as well, followed by goals from Roberto Alviz and Azwan Ali.

Azwan became the first home grown player to score for DPMM FC this season and it was the icing on the cake as he scored in injury time to make it 6-1.

The win put DPMM FC back to second spot in the S•League, two points behind league leaders Tampines Rovers who suffered their first loss of the season against Hougang United a few days ago.

DPMM FC head coach didn’t expect a flurry of goals as DPMM FC registered the largest marginal win this season. Steve Kean shared the goal difference can be very important in the near future.

He was happy that DPMM FC took their chances as compared to previous matches where they failed to make their chances count and dropped points.

Aide Iskandar, Courts Young Lions head coach, was very confident prior to the match but reality sunk in as his players couldn’t cope with the pressure as DPMM FC went on attack mode till the final whistle.

DPMM FC will now take on Harimau Muda, basement team in the S•League, this Friday at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium.

Impressive blockbuster 

Check out our podcast for our experience at GX MAX 3D while catching the first 15 minutes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hosted by Sony Pictures Singapore


Well, I won’t say that we show the whole movie but I managed to be invited by Sony Pictures (Singapore) as the bloggers from Singapore and I were invited to a press sneak preview of the first 15 minutes of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. So, of course, I won’t be spoiling to you guys what we saw. Some scenes were more elaborated from the trailers that we are familiar with.

What blew me off is Golden Village Cinema (GVC) GV MAX 3D experience. It’s not the IMAX version but it’s the 3D experience that I enjoyed so much. This may sound cliche but the 3D format for the sequel is “AMAZING”. I can’t wait to come here again for the special premiere later this month at Golden Village Cinema at Vivo City.

A big shout out to Tiffany for recommending me and also to Sony Pictures Singapore for the special invitation. I’m truly honoured and I also get to meet other local bloggers from Singapore. One interesting blogger I met was Rachel who is a music blogger who covers on concerts and music in general and another was Hisham, a blogger who blogs about tech stuff and arts, well, mostly tech stuff.

Anyway, do listen to my latest podcast on our take on the characters as well as the experience at the Golden Village Cinema’s GV Max theatre powered by dolby Atmos Surround Sound.

Behind the scenes: RP 


I have always wondered how it is behind the scenes at Royal Plaza on Scotts, a hotel that has been around for 40 years and still growing strong. Today it’s running on full capacity and apparently it has been in this state for many weeks already. This just shows that Royal Plaza on Scotts is one of the most sought hotels among travelers and this is also a favourite hotel among Bruneians.

Last week I had the privilege to tour around the work place area of Royal Plaza on Scotts and I was impressed how this prestigious hotel take care of their associates in the hotel. Thank you, Julian, for the tour and I finally get to meet the General Manager of Royal Plaza on Scotts, Patrick Fiat who has been part of the hotel since 1998.

One of the rooms that that caught my eye was the CHILLAXLOUNGE where the staff of Royal Plaza is able to relax and chill during their breaks. Occasionally there will be a masseuse to pamper the staff. Thumbs up to the management in making this environment for the internal staff of Royal Plaza on Scotts.

You can follow them actively on Facebook, Twitter @royalplazatweet and instagram @royalplazaonscotts

Royal Plaza on Scotts recently had a mini carnival for in-house staff to commemorate 40 years of existence
