Baiduri Capital launched

Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Suyoi Hj Osman, Deputy Chairman of Authoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (also the Minister of Development) launched the Baiduri Capital Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Baiduri Bank, this morning

It’s the first time that Baiduri Bank are providing securities trading and Pierre Imhof, the Director of Baiduri Capital feels it’s the right time for Baiduri Bank Group to explore into this market as there are a growing number of Bruneians with sizeable savings and also looking for opportunities to build wealth apart from deposits. The event took place this morning at Baiduri Bank Kiarong Complex.

The event was officiated by Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Suyoi Hj Osman, Deputy Chairman of Authoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (also the Minister of Development).

Baiduri Capital has been receiving a lot of interest from the public especially among the young professionals and these were done through workshops and seminars. Through these, Baiduri learnt that the market is ready. The extra added value from Baiduri Capital is the online securities trading portal. This is the first of its kind in Brunei and this is of course for the convenience of Baiduri Capital customers.

Well done on the launch this morning and so to those who love to play with stock market, look no further and try out Baiduri Capital services. They will be able to assist you and also assess the level of risk before you venture into the trading adventure.

Behind the scenes

This is it… The 27th Universiti Brunei Darussalam convocation day which will take place tomorrow Wednesday 9th September 2015. I shall be there once again to do some live coverage.. Hopefully, there is a stable connection that I could Periscope or Snapchat on some occasions but we shall see.

This year alone there will be almost 1,200 graduates (PhD, Masters and Degree) and some of the UBD graduates will receive their certificates in the afternoon session. Good luck to all and it should be a good experience for all the students graduating.. Enjoy and cherish the moment. You deserved it 😀 Below are some of the pictures taken during the preparation of the convocation. They have been working very hard to make sure the event run smoothly. Keep up the great work, committee!!




Not sure sure who took this but nice shot 🙂


My full admiration for the Guling Tangan team

Charmazing indeed!


Forget Candy Crush.. (especially for the young female teens).. I just came across a new addictive game for the girls and it’s more on wearing accessories and earning points through sharing or connecting with other owners of the particular accessories. This items that I’m talking about is no other than Charmazing (bracelets with charms).

Now Charmazing has a unique way of interacting with other Charmazing users – through means of the Charmazing App (now available on Apple Store and Google Play). You can now explore into the virtual world where you can wear, share and trade with friends and connect with other designers, simply by playing with the App. Awesome, huh? This trend has been popular outside Brunei and Best Eastern (leading bookstore in Brunei) has brought in one of the STYLE ME UP collection to the Sultanate and I believe this will be a huge hit among teenagers.

They have different range of collections to choose from Charmazing. Of course, the best to start off with the starter kit and it costs below BND 10 and you can also download the App and start connecting with other Charmazing owners. There are four sets in total and the biggest set is the Charmazing Deluxe Kit (the complete set with 6 bracelets with 12 assorted charms).

Now Best Eastern will be having a showcase starting 11th September to 13th September on the different activities from the STYLE ME UP collection and the Grand launch itself will be on the Sunday 13th September. All the activities will be hosted by Best Eastern at Times Square. You can follow Best Eastern’s Facebook page or their instagram @besteaster_bookstore

You can also check out charmazing.com for more details on how to play around with it.
