Maju Motors on the rise 

Chan Key Hong, Executive Director of Maju Motors and Steffen Schwarz, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group Singapore, with the management of Maju Motors and Volkswagen Group Singapore

Volkswagen Brunei has taken its flagship by storm in the past few months. Why? Just in May alone, Maju Motors, the local distributor of Volkswagen in Brunei, hit the 100 units mark which is the highest ever target for Maju Motors. Their VW Polo 1.4 was the biggest seller among the models and Maju Motors is excited as they will be unveiling new models in the near future. They have already unveiled the family orientated vehicle called Sharan and I was quite impressed with the features (More on that later on my next post). For now, I wanna highlight the growth of Maju Motors in terms of delivery and after sales service.

In the past 12 months, I could see a gradual progress at Maju Motors as they invested in upgrading and renovating their showroom and the result was pretty rewarding especially to their clients and potentially new ones. Their advert campaigns have catchy and effective to draw and entice new customers and breaking that barrier that Volkswagen do cater to all kind of personalities of their clients. There are some models that are made affordable also to the Brunei market without compromising the quality that Volkswagen delivers. So you will tend to see different walks of life behind the (Volkswagen) wheel.

The local media and bloggers have also made an impact on Maju Motors’ development in the past few months. I have to honestly say that compared to where Maju Motors was a few years ago and now, it has a tremendous change and thanks to the leadership and courage that Chan Key Hong, Executive Director of Maju Motors, who drove the company to newer heights and he himself was truly amazed by the company’s sudden growth especially in Brunei’s competitive automative market.

Steffen Schwarz, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group Singapore, was appreciative of Key Hong’s handwork and commitment in bringing Volkswagen to another level in Brunei Darussalam but he didn’t expect the sales to reach a 100% growth in just a matter of months. He shared with The Brunei Times that it is also important to look at the service side and brand after from the sales as these are key components in sustaining the growth. He said even though Brunei has a smaller market but it is nonetheless an important market in Southeast Asia. He praised the commitment and the effort done by Key Hong and his team.

So peeps, if you are interested to see the Sharan and other Volkswagen models, do head down to The Mall, Gadong, and check out the Volkswagen roadshow brought to you by Maju Motors and also receive a free The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf voucher when you test drive. The last day of roadshow is Sunday, 15th June 2014.

Once again, congratulations to Chan Key Hong and his team for the outstanding milestone last month and it was also a pleasure to have finally met Dionne from Singapore whom I have been liaising with through emails.

Check out my post tomorrow on the impressive Volkswagen Sharan.

Yippy Tune recital 

The students of Yippy Tune with their certificates

Yippy Tune celebrated it’s 3rd annual recital on Sunday attracting full capacity crowds for all 6 of it’s sessions on a single day; starting from 11am all the way to 6.30pm.

The audiences were treated with an afternoon of pure musical indulgence of different genres from classical to pop and jazz from performers as young as three and a half years old.

There was a clear distinction between this year’s performance and the year before, both in terms of student participations as well as the range of musical instruments being played at the recital – which includes, the Violin, Piano, Guitars and vocal performances.

“One of the overriding themes chosen by the students to perform this year had been the songs from Frozen’s soundtracks. Clearly, Brunei is not immune from the ‘Frozen’ fever.” According to Ms Deon Ong- the School Director.

Also present to perform at the event were the students from St Andrew’s School, performing group music with their violins in the afternoon. The St Andrew’s Students were coached by Yippy Tune teachers during the term with the onsite music learning program.

The music school has seen a steady growth in business in the last 12 months, as there had been an increase in the realization of the importance of music appreciation and skills amongst the parents. “Music has along been associated with children’s cognitive and social development; I think the parents in Brunei are increasingly realizing this very crucial point.” Which, as a result, “the number of staff has multiplied three-fold.” According to the School Director.

The 10 Brunei representatives heading to Hollywood with the sponsors at Frescho
Text by Ikhwan Salleh of The Brunei Times: Dynamic vocals, soothing music and convincing acts kept members of the media on the edge of their seats on Friday at the function hall of Freshco during a press conference.

One of the highlights of the team is junior participant, 15 year-old violinist Chiam, who told The Brunei Times that she was honoured to represent the Sultanate.

“I’ve played for 11 years and I could see that Bruneians are talented and musical in every way,” she continued, “There are more talents that need to be discovered.”

Chiam mentioned that she will performing five pieces of which three will be original creations dedicated to her mother, who will be joining the trip. “She’s been supporting me throughout the years and I love her for that.”

Organiser of the press conference, Licensed National Director of WCOPA in Brunei Darussalam, Prismworks Sdn Bhd, fondly recalled last year’s glorious participation and the hopes for Team Brunei in this year’s competition.

National Director of Prismworks Jeffrey E Cadayong said, “This is the second time Brunei is joining,” he added, “It represents the spirit of Bruneian team,” upon recalling last year’s win of the ‘Best in Team Spirit’ award.

“It is the biggest opportunity to expose these talents in the capital of entertainment and all we need to do is support them,” he added.

Cadayong also took the opportunity to thank generous sponsors who were present during the press conference, who were representatives from Baiduri Bank, Laneige Brunei, KFC and Aewon.

The Brunei WCOPA team is set to fly to Los Angeles on July 11 and will stay there for nine days.

DPMM FC to take on Home 

[Report by Yee Chun Leong]: Their Royal Highnesses Prince ‘Abdul Wakeel and Prince ‘Abdul Muntaqim laced up their football boots to participate in a football clinic conducted by Singapore League (S-League) leaders DPMM FC yesterday.

Two sessions were held for two different batches at the International School Brunei (ISB) in Berakas – the first for Years 1 to 3 and the second for Years 4 to 6.

Each session consisted of three 10-minute drills, and once completed, the students competed in a 10 minute game.

Speaking to The Brunei Times, DPMM FC head coach Steve Kean felt that the standard of football in the school is good.

“Technically, the children are very good (and) I was mentioning that to the management and players,” said Kean before the start of the second session yesterday.

“What is good is that we have split the kids into positions where we have attackers, midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers – so we have our players that play in those positions doing some individual coaching.

“It was really good for the kids to spend time with their favourite players – especially those that play the same position,” continued Kean, who handed out pesambah in the form of jerseys to the two princes.

Other students also had the opportunity to meet Kean and DPMM FC players as well as grab their autographs during a meet-and-greet session mid-way through the event at the school’s hall.
Brunei’s only professional club also handed out 100 tickets for their S-League match against Home United at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas on Friday.

DPMM FC had previously visited the Sports School in April and Muda Hashim Secondary School in Tutong in May. However, only question and answer sessions were held then.

DPMM FC are looking to carry their Singapore Cup momentum into the S-League after demolishing Global FC of the Philippines 7-0 in their Singapore Cup opener at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore on Saturday.

DPMM FC continue to lead the S-League standings with 31 points from 13 matches.

Warriors FC closed the gap to four points after beating the leaders 1-0 at the Choa Chu Kang Stadium in Singapore on May 22, the result ending DPMM FC’s seven-game S-League winning streak.

Three-time defending champions Tampines Rovers follow on 25 points while Home United are further adrift by a point.

Albirex Niigata FC (S) round off the top five on 23 points.

Completion granted 

Sundown 21km completed last Saturday

Sundown galore. This is my second attempt in 21km and I have to admit I wasn’t really prepared for the race. Firstly, my training sessions have been woeful to say that least. I hardly train and I only had like 3-5 sessions since February on my run. Bad, right? By the way, I was just 20 mins away from the cut-off time to earn my 21km finisher medal. Phew!!!

Perhaps I was focusing more on tennis and swimming lately in the final month before Sundown which exactly doesn’t do much for my 21km but maybe more into swimming since it improves my fitness slightly.

My timing wasn’t that great either and I had the same mentality as last year which is to complete the 21km. The first 4 kilometer was great because I was on my actual pace 7.15km/hr until I hit the 5km mark and things started to slow down. My pacer Alice was already far ahead of me after the 3km mark. She finished an hour earlier from me and she’s a great runner but she hardly trained.

Between 8km to 17km, I was power walking because of the cramps that I had to endure and the worst was yet to come when I had blisters on my left foot which made running difficult. The final 3km of the route, I managed to jog and increase my pace. I believe it was the hot, cooling cream that I applied after the 17km mark and it helped the cramps to slowly subside.

My friends finished earlier than me too. Well done to Zuraidah for finishing her first ever 21km and she said that it will be first and final registered 21km race *lol* I’m proud of my sister Muji for completing her first ever full marathon 42km. I know this is one of my bucket list but if this is to happen for me, I will have to seriously train myself seriously.

The Sundown Marathon Singapore was another great experience. However, the overall feel and minor things (of logistics) of the event was slightly a let down. I wasn’t happy with the drinking station for a start and some of the routes are dangerous for running as I saw a lady trip due to the uneven path and good luck she didn’t bleed on her face as it scratched on the cement path.

Thank you Sundown Singapore for another experience. Next year again? Probably yes..

Alice, myself, Muji, Zahrin and Badee at the Sundown last Saturday. Only Alice and I ran the half marathon while the rest ran 42km. Well done 😀

Sweet revenge 


The highlights between DPMM FC and Global FC

Report by Syarif Rasani of The Brunei Times: DPMM FC tasted sweet revenge as they thrashed Global FC 7-0 to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Singapore Cup at Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore last Friday.

Their previous clash in last year’s edition of the tournament saw Global FC of the Philippines knocked them out 5-4 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.

DPMM FC’s goal scoring machines – Roy O’Donovan and Rodrigo Tosi – were again on target as they shared a total of five goals between them in a game that proved the total dominance of the Bruneian club.

O’Donovan capped his stellar performance with fine a hat-trick scoring in the 59th, 78th and 89th minutes to make him the leading scorer in the Singapore Cup.

Tosi, who is currently the top scorer in the Singapore League with 12 goals, hit the back of the net in the 57th and 70th minutes.

The remaining goals were knocked in by Azwan Salleh in the 80th minute and Shahrazen Said in the 90th, who was a late substitute in the 82nd minute for Tosi.

DPMM FC head coach Steve Kean felt that his boys played a fantastic game in the second-half.
“I felt that in the first half probably our players were all too wide,” Kean told the media.

“We were making it very easy for the Global FC’s full backs, so what we did after half-time was play very narrow on the pitch because I felt that Global FC’s two holding midfield players were getting on the ball too much.

“We really turned the middle of the pitch to our advantage so that Joe Gamble, Hendra Azam and Rosmin Kamis could control the game from middle, making it difficult for the two central players of Global FC.

“I also pushed another player up front because I wanted Tosi to drop in midfield a little bit when we didn’t have the ball. I told to him just stay up as a striker and let’s just try to win the ball in the middle and then play off the front end quicker and squeeze the game much higher.

“Historically, we don’t have a good record in this competition but I don’t believe that history comes in always because every year you have a new team.

“I think the main thing for us is that we just have to keep trying hard to keep clean sheets both in the S-League and now in this competition.

“I said at the beginning of the season I think that we have a competitive squad that can compete in the three competitions, so why not win this competition because it’s a fantastic one to win,” added Kean.

DPMM FC will be joining Tanjong Pagar United, Balestier Khalsa, Geylang International, Albirex Niigata (S), Tampines Rovers and Home United in the quarter-finals.
