Hello 2015

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Hello 2015


My first blog entry for 2015. Ah, it ain’t a big deal as it used to be. I realised I don’t simply blog every day as I do on a regular basis. Look at the popular and influential blogger @xiaxue. She hardly used her blog to share her stories but concentrating more on social media such as her Twitter and instagram. Yes, I’m pretty active on my instagram too as compared to my blog channel. Most of the social media influencers are relying less on blogs to get their information across. Sometimes I wonder if blogging will be become obsolete. I hope not because I still love to jot down my thoughts from time to time. Remember, blogging used to be so popular that our Brunei community almost have 1,000 bloggers alone for such as a small community. In come Facebook and now Instagram, it has changed the landscape of information sharing. We have to entered the Age of Indigo which translate to the the Age of Information.

After spending most of my December overseas, the final day of 2014 was spent with my buddies in Brunei in a small gathering. It’s been the usual gathering where we had mini games and of course, the addictive dancing game – Just Dance 2015 (oh, you should try out the Tetris dance number). This time, we managed to sort out the food rationing but ironically we had more bottled soft drinks to bring back home. I could tell that the mood for the new year’s celebration is a bit sombre and low key. Fireworks were just little to be seen. We normally see multiple fireworks once it hits 1st January from the view of our room. Perhaps with all the ongoing restrictions, celebrations have been muted and also to respect and commemorate Maulidur Rasul which falls on 3rd January 2014 (12 Rabiulawal 1436).

What to look forward to 2015? I might reconsider re-committing to my 2014’s resolution because I was only on 10% process on last year’s resolution *lol* One thing that I know for sure is that I will be heading to three different cities in January – Labuan (confirmed), Kota Kinabalu (50/50) and Singapore (70/30). Nothing major this month apart from Maulidur Rasul celebration but there are two major events that I know of – The Century Run (11th January) and The Consumer Fair (28th January). Let’s make January a great month to kick off 2015.

I shall be back to my blogging habits by Monday. Enjoy the long weekend, peeps! 😀


Stay tune to my Top 10 movies and Top 10 stinkers of 2014. I will have to wait for @delgoh to return back to his US trip.

It was a packed house at The Mall Cineplex on New Year’s Day. Went to catch Seventh Son and it was kinda terrible. I don’t know why January line up usually gets all the crap ones. 2014 January stinkers were The Legend of Hercules and I, Frankenstein.

Something for me to look at during the weekend, clearing as much junk as possible in my Gmail 😀

This was a screenshot of someone in Singapore who stole my family’s mobile phone while shopping at Mustafa. We have filed in a police report but it seems the investigation might take a while.

Another controversial entry from Xiaxue with regards to exposing GushCloud Singapore on their tactics to lure their existing and potential clients. If you are kinda lost of what I’m saying, just click on the image to read more of her blog entries. She is definitely a game changer as her intention is to protect the social media industry and also create a healthier relationship with social media and their corporate clients.

I recently visited a new tea shop in Brunei and this is quite rare for a shop to simply sell traditional tea. This is located at Gadong Central and it’s called Tea Fu Chinese Tea Shop. I’m quite impressed with the green tea and the red tea. Who knows one day Bruneians will pick up the tea culture and appreciate the real Chinese tea 😀

It was the first time that I was part of the Heng Tai for a Chinese wedding. A very much privilege offer to be in one and I had to dress in a Power Ranger suit. Thank you Richard To for the opportunity.

I certainly don’t have the shape to be a Power Ranger *lol*

Another dessert franchise is in town and it’s called Blackball. Do try out their cold icy dessert. Quite refreshing if you ask me. Love those with red beans.

A new eatery in town called Home Kitchen and I have to give the deco a two thumbs up. It literally feels like you are dining in your own home kitchen. The food is quite good too and I like the Nelayan Pasta. Have yet to to try other dishes as well as their desserts.

We all had fun the other night dancing to the Tetris Song on Just Dance 2015 on the PS4.

Something unexpected happened when I touched down Brunei from Singapore. I was joking to my driver who waited for me at the baggage claim that someone’s luggage was being tampered with and only to find out that the luggage was mine all along. Hmmmm maybe I didn’t zip it properly or American Tourister can’t simply handle the weight.
