AMBD Day 2015 


It’s happening today until Saturday, 30th May. AMBD stands for Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam and to simply to all of you, AMBD is a governing body that looks at the financial institution in Brunei Darussalam. All banks in Brunei (local and international) will have to comply with the rules and regulations set by AMBD. Remember Brunei used to have huge cases of debts from personal spending? This is were AMBD comes in and help to ease the situation by setting appropriate guidelines for the banks and their customers for a win-win situation.

The financial institutions will have to go through AMBD should they want to propose changes in rates or even promoting their products and services. It’s a tedious process but it’s for the betterment of the community. Today marks a special day for AMBD, in hope that the community and the public are are aware of their existence and their mission. This year’s theme is “Facilitating your financial future”. The three day event will take place at International Convention Centre. Thurs 12pm to 6pm, Fri 9am-11:30 and 2pm to 9pm and Sat 9am to 9pm.






Congratulations Kamilla and Zukri

Guest of honour viewing the RB’s gallery history

Yesterday Royal Brunei Airlines celebrated their 40th year of flight and it was celebrated at the Royal Brunei Recreation Club. The guest of honour was Dato Paduka Hj Bahrin bin Abdullah, Chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines. He was accompanied by the Deputy Chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines, Dermott Mannion and Hj Junaidi bin Masri, one of the board of directors of Royal Brunei Airlines and also Royal Brunei’s Brand Ambassador Wu Chun.

It was interesting to see the history gallery of Royal Brunei Airlines’ journey back dated from its inception in 1975. Dermot was very thankful in his speech especially of the first flight cabin crew members who flew to Singapore on May 14, 1975. It brings that nostalgic feeling to the former cabin crew members and it was quite nice to see their presence and also being acknowledged in yesterday’s event. I actually wanted to see if the first intake of the cabin crew would do a one-time off service on a short flight sector (Singapore or Kota Kinabalu) to serve the passengers. That would be an awesome feat!

The 40 years’ milestone also depicted how much Royal Brunei has changed throughout the years. The rapid change occurred during Royal Brunei’s rebranding period which began in 2012. Yesterday Dermot Mannion shared that even the current website flyroyalbrunei.com has some facelift for easier navigation and better customer experience.

The VIPs and guests were invited to walk down memory lane of the different milestones of RB’s journey. It has been amazing history for our national air carrier. Now what is in store for the 50th year? For now, let’s stay in the present moment and congratulations RB on the amazing feat for the past 40 years.
