Preview: DPMM FC vs Balestier Khalsa FC

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in DPMM FC, News


Preview: DPMM FC vs Balestier 


The final tier round hasn’t been smooth sailing for DPMM FC. Having a six point cushion at one stage and losing two home games, DPMM FC have themselves to blame for the major slip but they can bounce back and make their final home match count against Balestier Khalsa FC tonight at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium.

The back-to-back home defeats have piled pressure on DPMM FC and the two week break was much needed for DPMM FC to get back on the drawing board and learn from their mistakes. I do hope that the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup qualifiers won’t have a draining impact on the players as most of the DPMM FC players were being featured for the qualifiers and they only have two days rest before continuing the S•League match.

DPMM FC head coach Steve Kean felt that it won’t be a disadvantage for DPMM FC players (after returning from a taxing AFF Suzuki Cup qualifiers) who will go up against a crucial tie against Balestier Khalsa in the remaining fixtures of the S•League. He shared that most of the young players were being featured and it shouldn’t be a problem especially to the senior players when they play tonight at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium.

The only player that might be doubtful is Shahrazen Said who nursing a slight hamstring strain but Kean is happy to have Rodrigo Tosi returned after serving his suspension which will give more attacking options for DPMM FC. The imports have been training on their own when the local players were in the AFF competition.

Kean felt that the points on board more important and if DPMM FC can win all their remaining fixtures, the S•League title will be DPMM FC’s first. Currently Warriors FC are leading by four points though DPMM FC have two games in hand. Hence it’s vital that DPMM FC get all three points tonight and put pressure on title contenders Warriors FC.

It’s sad news for Tampines Rovers as their title defence came to an end two nights ago when they lost to Warriors FC. The result meant that there will be a new champion in the S•League and it will be a two horse race between Warriors FC and DPMM FC. Albirex Niigata FC (S) still have a mathematical chance of winning unless Warriors lose their last game of the season.

Do catch DPMM FC tonight against Balestier Khalsa FC and the match entrance is FREE. Do spread the news.

Report from Rebecca Oi of The Brunei Times: Reconnect to health and happiness by joining in the Wellness Weekend — an event that seeks to assist members of the public in nurturing their mind, body, and spirit — today and Sunday.

The two-day event organised by food movement, Raw Food Asia, is held at the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources (MIPR).

Join in the many activities such as high intensity training and zumba sessions or connect with health experts who will share some of the biggest myths around nutrition and health that keep you from feeling your absolute best.

Take the opportunity to meet Susan Laing, an iridologist and nutritionist from the United Kingdom who will share her expertise on Iridology. Laing said just by looking at one’s iris, she is able to discover the root cause of imbalances such as food intolerances as well as deficiencies in basic minerals and vitamins.

She is also trained in nutrition, therefore will be teaching participants on how to make super foods, which is good not only for the gut but will assist in cleansing the liver and gallbladder.

Laing will also be providing an eye test with prescription and Iris photos for the price of $49.99 and it is available only by making an appointment.

If you need someone to motivate you, look no further than Singapore’s very own Blade Runner Md Shariff Abdullah, who runs with a prosthetic blade. The 45-year-old professional athlete and motivational speaker has taken part in almost 20 over marathons and has completed more than 1,500 kilometres worth of races from 2009 until 2012.

Be inspired by his exceptional story and his dream of running in the Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon to celebrate Singapore’s 50th Anniversary in 2015.

Durian fans, on the other hand, can look forward to hearing from Lindsay Gasik. The durian researcher from the United States will be on hand to share her scientific outlook on the king of fruits.

She, along with her husband Rob Culclasure, has been to 12 different countries in the past two years to research and record the various types of durians and will be imparting her knowledge on the different varieties, which are found throughout her travels.

Gasik has also written ‘The Durian Tourist’s Guide to Thailand’ which provides everything one would need to know such as harvesting the fruit on organic farms to arranging lodging in orchard guesthouses.
Founder of Raw Food Asia Mewsum Wong and Senior Consultant at Astera Consultant Siti Kaprawi said that the Wellness Weekend is a perfect opportunity for Bruneians to come together to relax and rejuvenate and connect with health experts.

Kaprawi told The Brunei Times that children from ages seven to 10 are invited to join a free durian drawing competition which will be held from 9am to 10am on October 26.

Drawing papers will be provided but participants have to bring their own colouring materials.

The event is sponsored by Sunshine Borneo Tours, The Brunei Hotel, NHF Astera Consultant, MSK Sdn Bhd, Brunei Detox Bar, Forever Green Organic, Superwater Marketing, Fruitime, Chambray Blue, Bath & Beauty by Charlene, The Borneo Pantry, Project SAFE, RFA Youth and RFA Fruit Enzyme.

For more information regarding the event or to book your tickets, please call Mewsum Wong at 895 7528.
