Back to normal

Glad it’s back 
 

Finally I’m back in Brunei after 10 days of holiday and it seemed like a long time. I miss being active with my coverage and furthermore, I miss the familiar faces I see now and then (you know who you are). I’m almost out of shape.. Well, it was more of a reference to my fitness level where tennis is mostly involved. The tennis group recently had a short trip to Miri yesterday for a friendly match between our tennis group and from the Miri side.

I’m kinda out of touch but thanks to The Brunei Times social media updates and the multiple sharing on my Facebook feeds on The Brunei Times’ articles, I feel that I’m in the loop of the happenings in Brunei.

The cycling event was, of course, the highlight of the week. It was rare to see His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam participating in a cycling event and it was lead by over 800 cyclists. Amazing feat indeed and I’ve never known that there are many cycling enthusiasts in Brunei alone. His Majesty cycled in the 15 km bicycle ride to mark his 70th birthday. All I can say is 70 and still going strong.. Amazing!!!

In other news, Pokemon Go seems to have taken Brunei by storm or Asia for that matter. When I was outstation, my social media feeds were dominated by Pokemon statuses and images. Is this a good thing or a negative thing? There’s nothing wrong for sure but just make you don’t drive and PoGo or escape work time to level up on your game. The question is how long will the phase last for? The developers had already made a few hundred millions through their purchase add-ins and in the first 5 weeks, they have earned more than USD 268 million. Amazing!! So for now, Pokemon Go is here to stay and no, I’m not one of them players huhu.

So enjoy your week, peeps and stay in touch through my social media feeds. Oh yea, thanks the Bluehost support team for scanning and cleaning my site. It was attacked by some unwanted Viiiirrruuussss… 🙁 So I’m glad it’s back and running.

 


His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, yesterday led over 800 people in an unprecedented 15 kilometre bicycle ride to mark his 70th birthday. Accompanying His Majesty was His Royal Highness Prince Hj Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office. Image courtesy of Vincent Hong.
 


This could be one of the reasons why bicycle sales have increased
 


My final day in Malaysia before heading back. I’ve been lacking sleep but enjoyed my break so far in Ipoh, Penang and Kuala Lumpur
 


A successful event hosted by Honey Carsmart last weekend for their Grand Sale weekend and also getting involved with charities
 


The tennis friendly match between our tennis group (Aiman’s students) and players from Miri. It was held at Miri yesterday. Too bad I couldn’t make it and it was great exposure for the young players to play abroad.
 


It was first time staying in an AirBnB apartment in Kuala Lumpur and it was pretty good. I love the room and the host, Melvyn, is friendly and helpful. I also met a new friend from AirBnB and she’s staying in the other room of the apartment. I’m impressed with her resume as she has worked in Malta before. It was nice knowing you, Michiko. I hope you visit Brunei one day and we both have something in common. We support Liverpool 😀
 


My third Kpop concert and I kinda like the energy of the boy band, iKon. The concert took place at Indoor Stadium Negara. Kuala Lumpur last weekend. I had the privilege to cover the event (many postings on Snapchat). Congratulations to Kelly Wee and Vili Tee on winning the tickets and big thanks to Yuslin for arranging the tickets and my media pass.
 


The second consolation prize draw was held last Friday for the “Win the Helix” promotion. So far they had 5,925 entries for the month of July alone. The promotion ends 31st August. So you still have a chance to win the grand prize – Volkswagen Tiguan 1.4 TSI. Image above are the members of the press who drew the names and witnessed by the management of Brunei Shell Marketing.
 


I caught a record of 6 movies in my recent trip. Suicide Squad and Bad Moms twice actually *lol* You can tell how much of a movie buff I am 😀
 


Though I complained too much about Batman v Superman, I still caught again from the in-flight entertainment on Royal Brunei Airlines. Thank you, Aunty Jacky for the upgrade 😀 It was nice catching up again and see you this Friday

Corporate Raya-ing 
 

This is the time of the season.. The second of Syawal (Hari Raya) where there will tons of invites from corporate companies. Well, not all of them I could attend for sure and of course, I was snubbed from some corporate companies. Below are some of the corporate open houses that I managed to drop by and I’ve been getting many similar comments – “Rano, you seem smaller” or “You’ve lost weight”. Awwww.. thanks for the comments but mmmm, looks can be deceiving, my friends.. Standing is the best way to hide all the fats but sitting down is an easy giveaway *lol* I can already fill the tiny increase of my bulge after not controlling what I ate during Hari Raya.

Enough of that.. Just enjoy the pictures and captions from my recent Raya visits.

Hope to meet you again over the course of your stay here and welcome to Brunei Darussalam 😀
 


Azhani with #POTUS moment :p
 


My visit to the iCentre where they had organised a potluck Hari Raya. Yea, things have truly changed and perhaps for the better. I actually missed the pioneers (the management then) – Ogy, Rayner, Diwi, Danial and many more. It’s good to pay a visit to iCentre again. Loads of good memories.
 

 


Simon and Faezal displaying their upcoming event – Weekend Warriors. It’s actually an app where you can play futsal at your own convenience… well, depending on the court availability too. Let’s put it this way.. if you have a team or even just you alone, you can play and be part of a team. Interesting.. I shall share more of Weekend Warriors pretty soon. Good luck, guys 😀

Who will you run as? 
 


Coming to you this August. Registration ends on 27th July 2016 (Two more days). Don’t forget to register [Click image to enter]
 

Are you ready for an awesome gimmick run? After two months of break, running events are back!! Perhaps this race is something more exciting than previous runs that have been organised. This is because of the items that runners are expected to receive as part of their race pack. The items themselves look very collectible especially the medals and even their running attire where a top and a sock will be given depending on your choice of superhero.

Apart from that, you can also pre-order merchandise of Batman V Superman which are available on their main website such as mugs, watch, t-shirts and many more. Hence, I would say there is a lot of thought being put into this racing event.

The closing date of the registration will be on the 27th July 2016 as well as the payment for the Batman V Superman Brunei Darussalam Run. As for the running event itself, it will take place on 21st August 2016 at the Jerudong Park Amphitheatre. Click here to go to the official website and register there.

The event is organised by Heroes Brunei (under Armtrix Enterprise) and it’s supported by the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports. All the best and I’m pretty sure there will be a good turn of this event.

DST Hari Raya  
 


Among the attendees at DST “Social Media” Raya was the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports (2nd from right).
 


DST has been quite particular with invitees and all attendees will have to register their names for attendance
 

Interestingly enough DST hosted a so called “Social Media” Raya theme last week and it was held at the usual spot at JIS Arts Centre at Jerudong International School. I kinda like the venue though and the set up this time has much improvement from last year – more space to wander around and mingle.

As I mentioned the theme is “Social Media” Raya, inspired by the ongoing lifestyle tread of social media tools used for social interaction in a tech savvy society. You will come across familiar names such as WhatsApp, Google, Facebook and so on. Furthermore, the guests were entertained by a 6-piece orchestra (Malcolm and his friends) and I truly enjoyed the occasion.

There were nice range of food vendors, popular on social media and the one that caught my eye.. I mean, my taste, was the delicacy from @piasau.glace (must try). The set up of all the vendors were uniformed and it showed a simple nice touch to the Hari Raya event.

According to Radin Sufri Radin Basiuni, Assistant General Manager of Group Corporate Communications, the team enjoyed setting up the Raya themed event and it was a fun challenge to incorporate social media into the event. It’s also an opportunity combined with the spirt of Hari Raya to meet at one time and provide them with hospitality.

Aside from DST’s annual celebration, the leading telco had organised a series of Hari Raya celebrations including DST Hari Raya with Special Needs Children and also for Corporate associates from the Belait District.

Hosting the event were Awang Abdul Lattif, member of the DST Board of Directors and Suhaimi Hussain, CEO of DST.

Gearing up after the break 
 

After a long holiday, it’s back to reality. Yes, even blogging is considered a job for me and I have quite a few pending jobs to finish off apart from my updating my work online. I’m not even a big fan of paperworks but I need to get the job done or I won’t get paid *lol*

So how has your Hari Raya been? I have continued my newer tradition – to spend more time doing my own things and be selective on open houses. This practice has been on going for the past three years and I’m getting the hang of it. So how many houses have I been in the past five days? I would say 6-7 houses which is quite reasonable to my liking. There were three new places that I’ve never been to (Yani, Heidi and Dr. Sophia) and I’m glad for dropping by.

Actually during Hari Raya, it was also the best time to catch movies since there were lesser traffic congestions and parking was easier to find too. However, the movies during those times were totally disappointing (Ice Age 6/10, The Legend of Tarzan 6/10, Alice through the Looking Glass 6/10). Yes, I’m just appalled by the summer movies of 2016 and even my summer box office prediction in terms of earnings haven’t been spot on. I hope for July/August movies to make up for mediocre line-up of May and June movies.

I need to readjust my sleeping pattern thanks to fasting and also Euro 2016. My sleeping average time has been in the range of 5am to 6am which is not healthy, considering I wake up around 11am or earlier. Speaking of Euro 2016, what a shocker result to see Portugal coming off as champions. They were fortunate to get pass the group stage with three draws and no wins and slowly snuck in to the finals where they beat the host nation France 1-0 in extra time. To top that, Portugal have lost all their 10 meetings against France so that odds were heavily against them. Good for Ronaldo and his team who played their hearts out in the finals.

Yesterday was also my first work out session in a long time. When I say work out, it means tennis 😀 Woohoo.. I was happy to be back on the court and thanks to my tennis buddies, Ming Rui, Sin Yi and Hong Ming for the rally. I’m still bummed that Roger Federer failed to capitalise on Djokovic’s exit in Wimbledon. But hats off to Andy Murray for winning his second Wimbledon after finishing off Raonic in straight sets.

I shall be back this week and updating more stories. Don’t forget to follow my social media updates on Snapchat and instagram. Enjoy your week and Selamat Hari Raya.

 


Yes, it’s good to be back on the tennis courts. I’ve missed playing tennis to the max.
 


Bumped into Soon Loo, CEO of Darussalam Enterprise (DARe) recently at one of the open houses. We shall catch up soon 😀

A Shell Helix Workshop

Taken from T.K. Asco Facebook Page
 

Brunei Shell Marketing Company Sendirian Berhad (BSM) recently launched a BSM Shell Helix Branded Workshop at T.K. Asco in Menglait.

BSM initiated the Helix Branded Workshop Project to provide standard support at sites to eligible customers.

According to the Head of Commercial, Siti Kurshiah Hj Anuar, “Our distributors welcome the Shell Helix branded workshop concept as it is a worthy CVP for them to build trust with their customers and help them with their consumer retention, consumer acquisition, ultimately, leads to brand trust. With the Shell Helix Branded Workshop, the customer can trust our distributors take care of their cars at a reasonable price.  The Shell Technical Advisers (mechanics) are more professional due to the training received, making them more capable of caring for their cars in terms of the suitability of lubes oil on offer (suitable for engine and car).”

By being a Shell Helix Branded Workshop, it also makes our Shell Authorised Dealers be more visible for quick differentiation amongst the various Independent Workshops out there.

Venus Chong to share her views on the negative implications of the Internet
 

Venus Chong. At 17 years old, shehas already had her fair share of experience in public speaking. Her journey started back in her old high school, STPRI, when she was in Year 8. She has been an emcee for assemblies, joined the National Debate Competition and the National English Language Oratory Competition (BELTA). Entering Maktab Duli did not stop her achievements. She became a part of the winning Upper Team in the Upper Level National Debate Competition. Soon after, she was elected as President.

Venus considers herself outspoken and very opinionated. She’ll be sharing with us how the Internet has amplified the narcissist in all of us. She believes that there lies a narcissist in each and every one of us, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Venus plans to make us realize, accept and love ourselves a little bit more.

 


Ahmad Syauqie will share his thoughts on cyber bullying
 

Ahmad Syauqie. He started out experiencing bad stage frights until in 2012, his interest in public speaking was peaked with the encouragement of a teacher. He won 3rd place in the National English Language Oratory Competition (BELTA) and later helped the next BELTA representatives and his peers in their science presentation.

Public speaking isn’t the only thing, however, that caught Syauqie’s attention. He realized that cyber bullying is growing to be an increasing problem in our society. The effects it has on each individual are left in the dark, therefore he aims to shed light on this situation. He hopes people would channel the kindness within and use technology for the greater good. Let him tell you how.

 


Only a few tickets left for Gold and Silver seats. Do call the number to see if there are still available.

Wu Chun back on screen 
 


Wu Chun starring in the upcoming movie Nest which is scheduled for shooting pretty soon
 

Kellan Lutz and Kelsey Grammer will join Li Bing Bing and Wu Chun in 3D sci-fi action film Nest and it’s slated for 2016 release.

The film, follows a group of scientists exploring an ancient labyrinth who must fight off a swarm of deadly, man-eating funnel web spiders if they hope to survive.

The film has enjoyed pre-sales success for Darclight, the genre arm of Sydney- and Los-Angeles-based Arclight Films, which is pitching it at the American Film Market.

Arclight Films’ genre label Darclight, handling worldwide sales, also has sold the film in a number of territories at AFM, including Germany (Square One ), Middle East (Italia), Turkey (Aqua Pinema), India (Viswaas), Philippines (Pioneer), Vietnam (Galaxy), Myanmar (Colorful Garden) and Indonesia (Cinemaxx).

“Kellan Lutz and Kelsey Grammer bolster not only the cast in a brilliant way, but the overall power and commercial value of the film,” says Clay Epstein, Arclight Films’ senior vp sales and acquisitions.

The Nest is being written and directed by Kimble Rendall (Bait & The Matrix Reloaded), an ARIA Hall of Fame member inducted for his work as a founding member of the Hoodoo Gurus.Along with starring, Chinese actress Li also will produce with Gary Hamilton, Ying Ye, Mark Lazarus and Serena Deng, and executive producers Mike Gabrawy and Elliot Tong.

Kellan Lutz’s recent films include Twilight Saga, The Expendables 3 and The Legend of Hercules, and he’s wrapped work on Extraction with Bruce Willis and Money with Jesse Williams. He’s repped by WME and Ryan Daly of Zero Gravity Management.

Frasier star, Kelsey Grammer appeared in Transformers and The Expendables 3, as well as Entourage and the upcoming films Storks and Bunyan and Babe. He’s repped by  UTA and WikkedCat Entertainment.


Wu Chun is longing back to be on the set after a two years hiatus
 


Wu Chun with Hollywood actor Chris Evans
 

Quote from Wu Chun: After taking a break from filming 2 years ago, i am super excited to be back and extremely privilege to be given a role in NEST 3D. Its my first movie where i will be working with a strong team of Hollywood professionals and no doubt that its going to be a fruitful experience for me.

This is also my first attempt on a 3D movie production and the fact that i am always a Sci-Fi movie fans makes me even more curious on the set up of this production which will take place mainly in Australia starting this month.

 

  
 

New tyre inflators

When will it stop? We tend to take the small things for granted. It’s a norm that all those who drive will visit the petrol station at least once a week. The thing that we don’t realise are the tyre inflators that are stationed at almost all petrol stations for the convenience of the motorists should they want to inflate their tyres.

However, it’s sad to note that the petrol stations are also subjective to vandalism and yes, the tyre inflators are one of the targeted items – cutting off the hose or spoiling the gauge. For your info, the self-service tyre inflation is FREE of charge and sometimes patrons won’t realised that the faulty inflators were being vandalised and it’s beyond the control of the owners and the management since the inflators are physically located outside and exposed to the public.

This issue was raised by Hj Mat Sarudin Hj Ismail, Head of Brunei Shell Marketing’s Retail and the tyre inflators are provided by BSM to all the filling stations in Brunei Darussalam. Having said that, BSM will be undergoing a replacement program by bringing the latest digital tyre inflators and slowly, they will be installing to some of the filling stations in phases.

BSM are working closely with the their contractors and the Retail Station operators to implement a coordinated response on the tyre inflator equipment upgrading and replacement programme. The most important thing is that the equipment is safe and effective for the consumers’ benefit.

So I do urge the public to be more viligant and do watch out for the culprits who would tamper the equipments. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the service or reduce the vandalism, you can contact BSM at 277 4277 or email at BSM-External-Affairs(a)shell.com

Adib Noor testing out the Tomato KidZ bed
 

Do you want something that’s durable, lasting when it comes to children’s furniture? Now you can impressed your kids/children with Tomato KidZ concept furniture. The biggest winner here will be the parents and their children if they own a bed from Tomato KidZ.

For your info, Tomato KidZ is a revolutionary concept in children’s furniture and best thing is you can combine the designs to cater the demands of the children nowadays. Tomato KidZ is a growing brand from Malaysia and the idea came about where the brand originally started to provide quality furniture for the European market then slowly in Australia and in the US. Their biggest milestone was when Tomato KidZ were being commissioned by Walt Disney, Marvel and Hello Kitty. Awesome!!

It’s a good thing now that Tomato KidZ is expanding its business regionally and now we have one in Brunei, located at Regent Square 2, Kiulap.

When you pay a visit to their showroom, you can check out the craftsmanship on Tomato KidZ furniture. You will know where your money is spent/invested in. It’s safe, it’s sturdy and it’s quite versatile as well.

Safety is not compromised even when it comes to their ergonomic designs. Tomato KidZ ranked safety as one of their highest core values for the benefit of parents and their children. For example, with the bunk bed, they set the space between the upper and lower bunk which is carefully measured to prevent kids from knocking their heads.

Tomato KidZ also provides a study working station for kids and as they grow older, they are still able to make use of the study station. You can adjust the surface level of the desk especially when kids grow taller in the next few years. Hence the so called Intelligent Desk is very, very practical for children.

As for the warranty, the bedding parts comes with a 1 year warranty where as the Intelligent range such as the ergonomics study desk and chair and spare parts come up to a 10 year warranty. Awesome!!

You can visit their Facebook Page here for updates or pay a visit to their showroom at Unit D1, Ground Floor Block D, Regent Square 2. You can also contact them through +673 8187128.

 


Now a doll house can be part of your bed

His Royal Highness speaking to YAM Pg Anak Hj Abd Ghaffar and YAM Pg Anak Abdul Rashid before the final race of the day
 

Hj Md Fauzan Pehin Dato Rahman showed why he is a tough racer to beat. Despite finishing 3rd in the final leg of the 2015 Brunei Darussalam Karting Championship (BDKC), he garnered enough points to win the championship and he successfully defended the title he won last year. He won in the senior category. It was a close encounter for the championship point between Fauzan and his closest competitor, Md Diaud’din Hj Md Daud but Fauzan finished ahead of his competitor to clinch the title. Fauzan was driving for Amori Racing Team.

As for the final leg, Ammirol Ahmad Mahmud of Miri won the race and second place went to Muhd Jeffrey Abdullah Suresh who is no stranger in the karting scene with 7 titles under his belt in the senior category. Jeffrey represented Maju Advance team.

As for the Veteran category, Han Wee Yiau from Miri won the final leg and won overall in the category with 80 points. He bettered himself as he finished runner-up last season.

In the Novice category, 14 year old Ahmad Izzal Iman Hj Mohd Jazlan of ViiCool Racing, stole the show as he clinched the final leg and also the overall championship in the respective category. Definitely a bright future ahead of him.

The final leg of the championship was also held in town in conjunction with the coined name of Bandar Seri Begawan as the capital city of Brunei Darussalam.

Present as the guest of honour to hand out the prizes to the winners was His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Malik. His Royal Highness also toured the exhibitions after the prize giving ceremony.
