Seruji Haji Setia leads the 20th Baiduri Masters after the first weekend of play and looks in firm contention to defend his title at the RBA Golf Club. The Baiduri Masters will continue this weekend from May 8-10. The biggest mover of the tournament was Haji Shahminan Damit whose excellent round of 69 skyrocketed him to second from the final top 12 in the leaderboard.

Khairol Bakar dropped to third with a gross score of 73 with 2010 runners-up Tony Haji Karim in fourth on count back. Lai Suan Loong also slipped to fifth after managing a high of third place on Saturday. In the ladies rankings, the highly respected Almas Syadzwanie Kamis led the way in first place with a score of 70.

Patricia Danielle Bayina and Siti Zabaidah trail further behind with a score of 75. Dora Madai sits in fourth with 76 with Mary Hiew (82) and Nurzana Suhaili (102) completing the top six.

Vanessa Boumba Marie-Alice carded a round of 69 to set the pace in the junior division rankings as the first weekend came to a close.

In the team division, Sweet Lip Emperor recorded a score of 211, four strokes ahead of Petir A.

This year’s Baiduri Masters added two more hole-in-one winners in Ahmad Izzat bin Dato Seri Setia Haji Mohd Zaimi and Ahanapiah Haji Md Noor, seven years since Elyas Abdullah Tseu broke a 13-year drought by claiming a historic first hole-in-one in the history of the competition.

John Kilpatrick helped add the gloss on an explosive golfing weekend after his nearest-to-the-pin attempt in hole No 16 landed 12 centimetres short from the hole, bagging him a cool B$20,000 cash prize. For your information, all the slots for this weekend are all fully booked. Well done, Baiduri. Text courtesy of Fadhil Yunus of Borneo Bulletin.

BIBD Showcase


BIBD caught my attention once again. I know I was slightly side tracked by the the actual BIBD Home Showcase but let me first talk about the BIBD Virtual MasterCard which is so convenient for many of use who use transactions online. Now with the Virtual Mastercard, you can simply pay using your phone by sending a text. That’s it!! I never realised this service has been around for a year already but perhaps, it’s more about educating and creating more awareness on how simple a paying or selling transaction can be by means of mobile. Now this service is so ideal especially for SMEs or e-vendors that can save them a lot of trouble and it will be a win-win situation for the buyer and the seller (e-vendors). This was explained by Hjh Nurul Akmar binti Hj Mohd Jaafar, Deputy Head of Consumer Banking cum Head of CSR, BIBD recently during the press conference for the BIBD Home Showcase. See, I told you that I was a bit side tracked.


BIBD aims to go paperless


So for today until Sunday, BIBD has an ongoing BIBD Home Showcase at the Mall, Gadong. This popular showcase is back once again and it seems that the mindset of the youth especially the young graduates have taken the courage and the big step in owning a home. The youth have started planning their future by looking for a place to live. A decade ago, it would have been a different priority. Instead they will opt for cars as it’s part of the mainstream culture in Brunei to own one after you start working. Now the tide has slightly shifted as we are thinking long term.

Not to worry as BIBD Personal Bankers will share their expertise and tailor to your future home needs and it’s ideal to start now because of the upcoming festive season. This is such a timely manner as renovation, for instance, may take some time and with proper planning, you will have the end results before the festive season. There’s a saying that “Rome wasn’t build in one day”. So do start planning and pay BIBD roadshow a visit and they are more than willing to help and assist you.
