Come September Come

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


August almost over

Sometimes I wonder what it is like to be a serving staff during a dinner function. It’s never easy being one as you need a lot of mental and physical strength since you need be there a few hours before the function and also staying behind to clean up the area. I have high respect to all the service staff especially in catering. This was taken during the Abacus Brunei Silver Jubilee celebration and these are the serving staff from Royal Brunei Catering.

Now this is one power house notebook. The Acer Nitro with super great specs – 17 inch, powered with an i7 Intel processor and 16GB of RAM (wow) and Nvidia graphics card. It’s also equipped with solid state 1TB of HDD. Now it’s available at Concepts Computer and selling at BND 1,888.

I never realise how time flies so fast. Happy 25th anniversary Abacus Brunei. For your info, in my simple explanation, Abacus is the booking system used for travel agents and of course, Royal Brunei booking system. So when you visit a ticketing agent, they are using the Abacus system to book your flights. The celebration was held last Friday. More details on the winners next week.

Annabelle Pei Pei. Wow, where can I start? She has been singing for private functions for many years already. As of late, she’s now not just a singer but an entertainer. She has groomed to a more matured entertainer which is very important to gain traction of the audience. Keep it up!! It’s always a plus if you can host an event and cap it off with singing. A bright future indeed. Image by Hanafi Salam.

Wow, sambal burger is a new promotional item from Burger King and I have a feeling this will sell quite well in Brunei market. I just had it last Friday and guess what? I had it today for breakie 😀 Thumbs up to Burger King. Of course, my fav item there is still the taro pie.

What a class act by UBD Toastmasters members last night at the UBD Toastmasters Evaluation Contest and Humourous Speech Contest which was held at UBD Multi Purpose Hall. I was totally entertained and also encouraged by the number of participants in the contest. Here is the picture of the UBD Toastmasters members being briefed before the contest. A lot of winners in my heart. Keep up the great work!!

I had a great time being the timer with Ting Ting for the UBD Toastmasters Contest last night. It may sound as an easy task but it needs consistent mental strength and alertness especially when contestants are on stage.

Here is a picture of Minister of Development, Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Suyoi bin Haji Osman and Datuk Awang Sahak bin Awang Salleh, High Commissioner of Malaysia to Brunei Darussalam with Royal Brunei Catering’s Acting General Manager, Pg Hj And Rahman during launching the Baba Nyonya Food Festival at Seasons Restaurant.

At the Baba Nyonya Food Festival, I had the rojak spring roll and it was pretty good. The food promotion will be ongoing until 10th September during dinner.

My deepest condolences to Sharon, Paul, Aaron and Awang Sitai on your loss. For your information, there will be a memorial service at St. Andrew’s Church at 9am, Monday 31st August 2015. May she rest in peace.
