Breaking fast at RBGCC

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


RBGCC Sungkai 


RBGCC is located after BEQ (Equestrian) simpang at Jerudong. Well, it’s not far from the Royal Polo and Riding Club. Just see this banner on the main road and you are almost there 😀

If you’re looking for a decent, quiet place without the hubbub of crowded Sungkai-ers, the Royal Brunei Golf and Country Club is the place for you. And yes, this is an unheard venue since the area is always dedicated for members of the RBGCC. So this is the first time it’s open to public for Sungkai (buffet) and I must say they are pretty impressive. Even though there weren’t a lot of people (probably because most aren’t aware of this), the staff were dutiful and attentive to us.

The restaurant itself gives a very classy ambiance, with comfortable and spacious setting. The items on the menu, although limited, make up in quality. Some of the items included nasi biryani, pineapple curry and steamed fish. Desserts consisted of assorted fresh fruit, fruit salad and kuih.

My sungkai buddies Pranika and Sharon liked the food and they were helping themselves to second rounds. Pranika enjoyed the biryani as she described it as “not too dry and not too moist – cooked with just the right amount of water”. Sharon had two favourites – the lamb, which was tender and the steamed fish (She ate almost half of the fish!). I particularly liked the cucur udang as it was flavourful and not too oily.

RBGCC, located at a quaint area in Jerudong is the best venue if you wish to spend quality time and have actual conversations while having a fulfilling meal with your family or significant others. It is priced at $15 for adults and $6 for children. But making a booking is recommended. So call them at 2611 582 or 261 2914 for bookings.

For your info, the RBGCC is just one simpang after the BEQ at Jerudong Polo Club. You won’t miss it as there will be a banner by the entrance of the simpang.

Hosting of this concert will emphasise the Government’s effort to strengthen Malaysia’s global appeal as a leading Asian destination for major live entertainment performances. K-pop is currently one of the hottest performance genres to hit the global stage, and with iKONCERT 2016: Showtime Tour, it is expected to meet the growing need of K-pop fans around the region. This concert is hoped to attract neighbouring fans to participate and treat themselves not only to the entertainment presented but also to the various tourism attractions that Malaysia has to offer.

Tickets priced at VIP RM588 (Numbered seat), Rock Zone RM548 (Standing zone), Cat 1 RM488 (Numbered seat), Cat 2 RM388 (Numbered seat), Cat 3 RM288 (Free seating), Cat 4 RM188 (Free seating).

iKON is made up of 7 members, namely B.I, Jinhwan, Bobby, Yunhyeong, Ju-ne, Donghyuk and Chanwoo. The “C” in “ICON” was replaced with “K” in envisioning them to become an icon of Korea. Having just debuted in September 2015, they were already starting a fandom as TEAM B while contesting in reality TV shows WIN: Who is Next and Mix & Match. They opened for BIGBANG in Japan and were part of the line-up for YG Family Concert 2014 alongside Psy, 2NE1, Lee Hi and Epik High even before officially debuting as iKON.

iKON’s first album Welcome Back, written by themselves, was released in half version and full version with both ranked No.1 on iTunes upon release in 11 countries. A concert held in Korea in support of the album was sold out within minutes.

Despite being a new group, iKON has been recognised as Best New Artiste at Seoul Music Awards, Golden Disk Awards and Mnet Asian Music Awards. The group was even acknowledged in China by receiving the NetEase Attitude Awards for Best Group and QQ Music Awards for Best New Group and Media Recommendation award, proving their popularity outside of Korea.

After hosting a series world-class events, Malaysia continues to be part of the Korean wave and one of the leading destinations in the world to host international events. Being the 2nd most visited country in Asia Pacific and the most Muslim friendly destination, Malaysia offers a diversity of exciting wonders at an affordable rate with state-of-the-art facilities for visitors to get in and around the nation.

Tickets to the show are available via TicketCharge at www.ticketcharge.com.my or +60392228811. For further updates, visit iKON’s official Facebook  or IME Asia’s official Facebook .

Modesto Food Fair Festival: Sungkai

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Modesto Food Fair Festival 


My guests for tonight – Nabilah and the boys from Filterworks Production minus A’aqiil

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Modesto


Finally, Modesto Bistro & Grill are introducing their Sungkai buffet line after the first week of Ramadhan. As you now Modesto has been undergoing some minor renovation to cater to the needs of their patrons. So if you have plenty of room for savoury dishes and desserts, I would recommend you to break your fast at Modesto.

Family goers would appreciate it more because they have a mini play area for their kids to wander.

For me, the clear winner is the dessert area because of the three brands that they brought in – Twinklepan, Hippo & Bees and Lof Bakery. Of course, the main courses were pretty good too at the buffet line but ironically I spent more on the desserts.

Also something about the sauce of the pasta that I like. If I’m not mistaken, it’s the one with the seafood mixture sauce. I had two rounds of those too.

Do take advantage of the promotion from BIBD and on every Tuesday you can enjoy 30% of BIBD Credit Card. Awesome!!! And not forgetting the daily discounts you can get from different range of BIBD cards.

Do experience and enjoy their special Modesto Buffet and it’s only available at Modesto Batu Bersurat branch. You can visit their Facebook Page for updates.

Pepperlunch deals

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Pepperlunch great deals 

Pepperlunch is located at Setia Kenangan II (next to Regent Square), Kiulap

Ready for a sizzling meal?

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Pepperlunch


My first experience of Pepperlunch was back in Kuala Lumpur back in 2014. It was located a food court joint of a shopping mall and I was quite impressed with the food. I didn’t realise it was a franchise until it came to Brunei last December.

Now Pepperlunch has become a household name among Bruneians and during the Ramadhan period, they are running a special gimmick for the Pepperlunch diners. Now you can enjoy one dish/meal for free when you buy 2 dishes of the menu. On top of that, they will also give you a bonus side dish and drink. Ain’t that a great deal?

Even the lunch take away, they have the same deal where you buy two and get one free. The responses have been pretty good ever since they ran the promotion and you can say that it’s really value for money.

I had my favourite dish – Premium Beef with Hamburg while my friend, Awfa, loved the Cheesy Omelette with Curry Sauce.

To see more of the choices they, you can see Thanis post on his blog entry or you can also follow Pepperlunch Brunei Facebook Page for updates. I’m definitely making another trip to Pepperlunch because the quality is just as consistent as in KL and also during my recent trip to Jakarta. Keep it up!!



Buy 2 dish and get 1 FREE

Available also for lunch takeaway

Tel: 891 8167


The awesome promotion

Do make sure you stir your meat while it’s being served. So the meat will be cooked 😀

I simply love the presentation from Pepperlunch.

How you can say no to this promo? 😀

So what’s your favourite dish?

A great turn out last night at Pepperlunch

Swensen’s Delight

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Swensen’s Delight 


Patrons enjoying their dinner at Swensen’s Sengkurong

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Swensen’s


It’s been a week of Puasa already. That means I’ve been to 7 different places for my Sungkai. My latest visit was at Swensen’s at Sengkurong (oh, they have another branch at The Mall, Gadong).

The place was was very welcoming – the fairy lights above the dinner buffet, the friendly staff, the warm interior makes up an excellent first impression. This was the only place I’ve visited that had lesser number of people but that didn’t let the mood down for everyone in there.

A bit of highlight on the main course, the varieties were just enough to get a complete taste of each item. The tomato rice and salmon pasta took the cake among the savouries. A separate station for salad as well as Kueh Teow soup was situated on one side for those looking for ‘lighter’ meals.

The star of the buffet, however, was the desserts. Apart from the delicious assorted puddings and pastries, they also served waffles. A member of the staff was patiently waiting until you finish piling those items on your plate and ask for a scoop of ice-cream. Not just that, you could top your waffles with anything from chocolate sprinkles to cookies to chocolate syrups. It just took me back to my childhood when I could eat all the sweet things in the world without any care.

Speaking of sweet things, another attraction of Swensen’s were the drinks. The good news is they have 50% off on selected drinks (such as Milo Float) if you dine in with the Sungkai buffet! Also, their bestselling item on the menu is Cendol milkshake float (not part of the discount). That is definitely something worth trying.

For a reasonable $16.80 for adults and $12 for children, you can enjoy a scrumptuous meal that will satisfy your taste buds. So if you’re near Sengkurong or don’t mind the drive there, you should go and try the buffet. You won’t be disappointed.

FV makes an impact in Brunei 

Her Royal Highness Princess Amal Rakiah with Vivy Yusof, co-founder of FashionValet recently at the FV pop-up store at The Empire Hotel & Country Club

Another photo opp with the Malaysian designers

I’m such a noob when it comes to fashion stuff. After being aware of Zalora and KLIHF, I only knew of FashionValet’s existence and never realised how big Fashion Valet is until recently. They are humungous to begin with.

You can tell how success a fashion portal is when it crashes from time to time (whenever they have new releases of their scarfs).

Apparently FV is quite popular here in Brunei and according to Vivy Yusof, co-founder of FashionValet, the market share for Brunei spenders are 15% and increasing. Hence, it’s such a timely manner for FV to make their presence felt physically in Brunei. Vivy wanted Bruneians to have a real feel rather than relying on virtual imagery on the few hundred collections under FashionValet.

Vivy was very overwhelmed with the responses from the public as hundreds flocked in to make purchases from the 30 designers where Vivy selected to bring to Brunei. The weekly event has been more than a success and Vivy vows to learn from their first showcase in Brunei held at The Empire Hotel & Country Club. This is because more than 60% of their inventory was bought in the first two days and thanks to the special discounts given to Standard Chartered Bank customers last weekend and also to the top FV spenders from Brunei.






I had the privilege to be invited by the team from FV for a Sungkai dinner last weekend and also interviewing the co-founder herself Vivy Yusof. Just one word to describe her – humble 😀 and I could see how dedicated she is in taking care of her fans as she continuously accepted photo requests from the incoming guests. I salute you Vivy for your constant high energy and being so accommodating at the same time.

Brands available for purchase at the event included Alia B, Syomirizwa Gupta, nh by Nurita Harity, emel by Melinda Looi, Poplook Premium and Mimpikita.

This is the biggest Raya campaign FV has worked on thus far. It is also one of the most exciting and rewarding times for FV and its customers as the Raya festivities inches closer.

The FV pop-up store will be at the Indera Kayangan Ballroom of The Empire Hotel & Country Club until June 17, open from 10am to 10pm. I believe by now there won’t be much choices due to the great responses from the public. Sometimes I wonder if the economic downturn has no effect on FV loyal customers.

BIBD handing over donation 

Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Hj Bahrin bin Abdullah, BIBD Chairman and Minister of Development handing out donation accompanied by Yang Mulia Mr. Mubashar Khokhar, BIBD Managing Director


BIBD today continued its commitment towards elevating the welfare of under privileged families in Brunei with donations towards more than five thousands recipients from all four districts.

BIBD also handed out special prizes to eleven orphaned students in recognition for their dedication to excelling in their education through the “Skim Hadiah Galakkan Pelajar-Pelajar Yatim Cermelang 2015”.

This was presented by Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Hj Bahrin bin Abdullah, BIBD Chairman and Minister of Development, who was accompanied by BIBD Managing Director Yang Mulia Mr. Mubashar Khokhar.

The donations were handed out together at a ceremony held at the International Convention Centre in partnership with the Community Development Department (JAPEM), Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports.

“As a responsible corporate citizen, BIBD’s core values is always within supporting our society,” said Mr. Mubashar Khokhar, BIBD Managing Director. “BIBD is dedicated to support the Brunei Government and the country’s initiative in helping communities to develop and move forward towards achieving Wawasan Brunei 2035.”

In keeping up with the spirit of Ramadhan, the cooperation with JAPEM is part of BIBD’s multi-platform efforts in providing support to the Brunei community, which includes BIBD’s annual Sirah Amal programme and the on-going development of its BIBD Advocating Life-Long Learning for an Aspiring Future (ALAF) programme.








Aman Hills Residence

You can check out the mock condo at Jalan Aman. Contact 717 5612 for appointment

I’ve heard of the condos along Jalan Aman and only yesterday I had the privilege to wonder around the mock condo of Aman Hills Residence which is slated to be completed in 2017. This could be the first where the developers are building both a condominium and a shopping mall under one umbrella.

As mentioned by Feeona Abdullah, sales representative of Proland REalty, some of the 60 units of the condominium have been taken and of course, there are still units available if any of you are interested. I kinda love the concept of the condo at Aman Hills Residence and anyone who stays here will appreciate the facilities it provides and also the convenience of shopping outlets in the coming years.

The mock condo has a four bedroom (one master bedroom), a jointed living room and dining area with a dry and wet kitchen area. The mock condo doesn’t included the furniture and other electrical appliances such as refrigerator and air condition. However, upon request, these items can be included with a different price range for a fully furnished condo.


The long spacious area with a size of 2,152 sq ft

The TV area. As mentioned, the mock condo just showcasing how it looks like with furniture. The prices stated are all unfurnished.

The master bedroom at the very end with a bathroom attached


As I mentioned earlier, there will be shop houses (two storeys), ice skating rink, bowling alley and Do-It-Yourself Hardware Store and not forgetting the influx of franchise brand in the food & beverage industry.

If you refer to the prices, the Aman Hills Residence offers different price range as low as BND 288K to BND 428K (unfurnished). Another gimmick offered by the developers are that once you buy the property, you can also earn rental with a 5% guaranteed rental returns per year for five years as it will be fully managed by Proland Realty. So you can say it’s a hassle-free investment with good returns.

For viewing of The Aman Hills Residence, you can contact 717 5612 for appointment and she will be more than happy to assist you.

Bombay Palace for Sungkai

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Sungkai at Bombay Palace 

Bombay Palace is located at Batu Bersurat


The mood after breaking your fast at Bombay Palace


Bombay Palace. One of the great places to dine if you are craving for Indian food especially. The choices are just simple and of high quality. This is ideal especially for me who doesn’t eat much but surprisingly I had seconds because the dishes are tasty to begin with.

I had to delay my trip to Bombay Palace by a day because the venue was fully booked. The restaurant also hired a new chef, Farouk (spelling?), who has 13 years of cooking experience and he has been working at the Radisson Hotel in India. I have to say that I do like his cooking. Even my Sungkai buddies had seconds from the buffet line.

My favourites are the Palak Kofta and the Chicken Punjabi. I guess the green sauce of the Palak Kofta was the killer. For this, I had three rounds. The texture and the taste were just spot on. Seng Yee love the Mutton Kadai.. Yea, it’s called Kadai *lol* but yea, this is another great dish. If you crave for something spicier, then the Fish Tikka Masala will satisfy your taste buds.

Price wise is pretty of good value, just below $12 for adults to begin with. You definitely will be satisfied with the overall experience. This year I chose not to do many restaurants and focus on quality ones and I have to say Bombay Palace have the right mix. Not too many and not too little. Just nice..

CheezBox Sungkai Buffet

CheezBox Sungkai Buffet 


Queueing at the buffet line

Salted Egg chicken 😀

Wow! The Sungkai Buffet at Cheezbox was just wow. So many items to choose from. This time, Pranika and Shuyee were my Sungkai buddies and they gave it a big thumbsup after the meal.

Cheezbox had specific stations for savouries where salmon fried rice and mussels were among the items. Next to it was the salad station. On the other side of the restaurant was the Italian section where three sets of pasta and their sauces were being served and you could also make your own pizza. The lower floor had the Japanese station with sushis and tempuras next to the desserts station, which had so many varieties of ice-creams, cakes and puddings.

For Pranika and Shuyee, the desserts were their favourite. Even after admitting how full they were, they couldn’t resist getting a bowl of ice-cream with all the flavours. Now the flavours themselves (milo, peanut butter, seasalt, ginger, blueberry lavender, matcha) are very unique and they’re homemade! In every flavor, the taste was so strong. Pranika loved the seasalt one as it wasn’t too salty but it reminded her of freshness.

Sushi stuff at CheezBox Sungkai Cafe

The condiments for Soto 😀

Butter crab. Definitely a steal coming from this buffet.

My Sungkai buddies, Shuyee and Pranika

The ambiance was very cozy; the place wasn’t overcrowded but not too vacant either. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their meals and for me, the setting itself plays a big role on whether you have a good meal or not. Kudos to the staff too! They were so efficient in clearing the plates and glasses when we were done.

For such a wide range of food items, $29.90 for adult and $15.90 for children is value for money. Especially for children, they would have so much fun baking their own pizza and getting to choose from different cuisines. So what are you waiting for? Have you put Cheezbox on your list of Sungkai places yet?
