Sponsorship for Sanjok

Pizza Hut Brunei inked a sponsorship contract for Professional golfer, Sanjok Moktan on 10th December 2014 for his 2015 ASEAN PGA tour with a “commitment to help an individual relishing his dream.”

Sanjok Moktan grew up in Brunei, and started the sport of golf at 16 after being inspired by his father. Following his passion, he decided to pursue a professional license in 2010 under the “Professional Golfers Association of the Philippines” (PGAP). Costly tournaments have limited him to only 6 ASEAN PGA appearances within the last 3 years, limiting his advancement to ASIAN PGA tournaments.

His notable talent and ambition had caught the attention of Pizza Hut Brunei, and Mr Johnny Liew, Managing Director of Olive Tree Corporation decided to sponsor Moktan. Liew has a further vision to grow the local sports scene in the community.

In their part to giving back to the community and contribute to that vision, Pizza Hut Brunei and Moktan plan to host golf clinics for the youth.

“I played a lot of sports and took an instant liking to golf; it was like an instinctive call from my competitive side. Golf taught me more about myself, made me more aware of my mental state. With gold it’s more of a mental game. When you’re hitting a shot, it’s not like any other sport. Golf is an individual competition, you can do it for yourself.

Moktan is looking forward to participating in the upcoming ASEAN PGA tournaments such as the Sabah Master in Kota Kinabalu, PGM – ASEAN PGA in Port Dickson, Borobodur Classic Presented by Jababeka & OB Golf in Indonesia.

Marriage cards 

Brunei will introduce marriage cards for Muslim couples as part of its new e-Syariah Court Management System.

Hj Hassan Hj Metali, Acting Chief Registrar at the Syariah Appeal Court, yesterday said a pair of marriage cards will be issued to every newlywed couple once the e-Syariah Court Management System is up and running in the next two years.

The cards will be the same size as identification cards, enabling Muslim couples to carry their proof of marriage with greater convenience.

“With the marriage cards, couples can easily show their proof of wedlock when needed. For example, if there is an inspection or ambush carried out by law enforcement, marriage cards will be accepted to prove the couple is married,” explained Hj Hassan.

Under the newly-enforced Syariah Penal Code Order, unmarried couples face heavy penalties for crimes such as khalwat.

Unmarried Muslim couples who live together or are caught in close proximity will be fined as much as $4,000, handed a jail term of up to a year or both under Section 196. Any non-Muslim involved in khalwat with a Muslim will also face the same punishment.
The Brunei Government and local IT firm ZimacSilicon Technologies Sdn Bhd yesterday signed a six-year contract worth $1.75 million for the implementation and maintenance of the e-Syariah Court Management System. To read more, you can click here. Soure: Rabiatul Kamit of The Brunei Times.


A sample of a marriage card from Malaysia if I’m not mistaken

Though this initiative is favourable by the Syariah Appeal Court, my suggestion would be to integrate the data into one smart card where the information of the person can be stored in current so called Smart Card Identity Card.

The enforcers will have a device that can simply scan the Smart ID card and all the information even on marriage and his or her spouse picture will appear.

We already have a similar card for Driving Licence and now a marriage card, on top of the must have Identity Card. Who knows one day in the future that all government agencies can work together to make our wallets more room for other essential stuffs 😀

Performance postponed 

Sungha Jung Live in Brunei has been postponed according to Sungha Jung Official Facebook Page. It’s not a surprised such event will go through difficulties especially in Brunei. Let’s hope it’s not canceled and the next tentative date will be early February 2015
