Beach Cleaning Campaign 

 


The smiling faces of the volunteers at the beach clean up this morning
 


I wonder how many tonnes were collected at all the five beaches

We have seen all these familiar contribution to the community of Brunei Darussalam and beach clean up is one of them. This morning, Brunei Shell Joint Venture Companies, Shell Deepwater Borneo (SDB) and Brunei Gas Carriers (BGC), ran a beach cleaning campaign at five beaches in Brunei and this is to commemorate the International Coastal Cleanup Day 2015 (ICC 2015).

The five beaches today were at Silver Jubilee Beach and Lumut in the Belait District, Telisai-Danau Beach in Tutong and finally Muara beach and Meragang beach in the Brunei-Muara District. For your info, this is the second year that they are running the beach clean-up campaign.

The objective of this campaign is to keep the ocean free from trash and this is one way to make the ocean more resilient. This campaign will also help to cultivate the spirit of volunteerism and also the mutual cooperation among staff, youth and members in the local communities.

For these efforts alone, we can see that the stakeholders involved are keen to promote Brunei’s environmental sustainability. For instance, Brunei Shell Petroleum’s support goes way back to 2007 where BSP partnered with the Government of Brunei for the groundbreaking, tri-country Heart of Borneo biodiversity conservation initiative. The current progress of the research projects includes the discovery of new endangered species and breeding areas.

Brunei LNG has also been involved in the environmental sustainability project such as dealing with the degradation of the peatlands in Lumut. The same goes to SDB where there is a partnership with the Biodiversity Research and Innovation Centre through the Marine Biodiversity Centre (Ministry of Primary and Industry Resources) and they will monitor to see if our marine biodiversity is well maintained.

Today at the Muara beach, they had 179 participants involved and present were the Royal Brunei Navy, Brunei-Muara District Office, Royal Brunei Police Force, Head of Village, Cosmopolitan College, BSP associates and BSM retailers.

The total number of people involved in the beach clean up was 758 people. Well done on the organizers. Images courtesy of BSP, BSM.

 


Let’s hope the young ones can shape the future of our environment especially at beaches

RIPAS caught on fire

What are the chances of having two separate fire incidents happening in a space of two days? This happened two days ago at RIPAS hospital when a fire broke out at the Cardiology Centre and the fire caused damages to 12 treatment rooms. Fortunately there were no report of injuries or casualties so that’s a huge relief for everyone. A big kudos to the Fire and Rescue Department for bringing the fire under control within half an hour before it could get out of hand.

According to the press statement from The Brunei Times, The Ministry of Health said the fire did not affect the Specialist Block and all in-patient or ward services at the hospital, which opened in 1984.

I was aware of the incident as it was spreading on social media especially on Whatsapp. Yes, news in Brunei is pretty viral right now and the headline pictures that were used on The Brunei Times and Borneo Bulletin were identical and taken from Whatsapp.

Present during the examination of the site was Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Suyoi Hj Osman, in his capacity as the Acting Minister of Health.

We are still unsure what sparked the fire at the Cardiology Centre but let’s hope the investigation will sort out that matter. What is important is that no one was hurt during the incident.

Total gives back to community 
 


Total E&P Borneo B.V. (TEPB) management visited one of the local communities at Kg Lumut recently

As part of their Ramadhan activities, Total E&P Borneo B.V. (TEPB) organized their fifth annual Ramadhan Charity, which provided in-kind assistance to the local communities where Total operates, namely Kg Lumut 1 in Mukim Liang (where the Total Onshore Processing Plant is located) and Kg Sabun in Mukim Serasa (where Total Logistic Base is located). Total also planned two more series of donations to DANA Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah National Fund for Orphans and also two orphans of Total’s former staff.

During their Charity visits to the local community, 18 volunteers from Total staff, which included two Heads of Departments split into two teams to handover the respective donations to the community in Kg Lumut 1 and Kg Sabun. The donations were in the form of kitchen staples such as rice, mineral water, sugar, cooking oil and hampers as well as prepaid utilities cards. There were also additional personal contributions by Total staff members. The donations were to help the underprivileged individuals in both villages to better celebrate the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

The Total volunteers in Kg Lumut 1 was led by Muhammad Rasimoon Hj Adinin, Head of HR, Corporate Communications and CSR. In addition, the group was also accompanied by several representatives from the Lumut 1 Village Consultative Council (MPK Lumut 1) led by its Secretary, Awg Ismail bin Mohammad. While the team in Kg Sabun was led by Zulhilmi Rambli, Corporate Communications & CSR Executive. Present to assist the Total group of volunteers were several representatives from the Village Consultative Council of Masjid Lama, Pekan Muara, Sabun, and Pelumpong. The MPK was led by its Head of Village, Pengiran Haji Mohamed bin Pengiran Haji Osman @ Othman.

Overall, the donations were handed accordingly to five recipients in Kg Lumut 1, and four from Kg Sabun, which were selected from the list of underprivileged individuals living in the village provided by Community Development Department (JAPEM).

One of the recipients in Kg Lumut 1, Dyg Jelimah bte Abdullah, 38 is a single mother with a four year old daughter. She is currently unemployed and live with her seventy four year old mother. The family relies on the Old Age Pension received by the mother and proceeds from selling hand-woven traditional baskets.

Dyg Afshah bte Abdullah from Kg Sabun is 73 year old lady receiving Old Age Pension. She suffers multiple health issues including high blood pressure, cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease. She lives with her daughter, Dyg Norazizah bte Abdullah, who assists her to operate a food stall to earn a living on top of some financial aid provided by JAPEM.

Team Brunei making more waves 
 


Adi Daini, Eden Chiam, Elizabeth Sim, Bridget Ang, Ruby Chong, Shian Li Esther Chiam and Norhidayat Hj Ahim arriving from Singapore last Friday

A very historic moment for Brunei. Yasmine making headlines on the front page recently, for its North America release this year. DPMM FC recently brought back another trophy from Singapore which was the Singapore League Cup. The other thing was our Brunei Team who competed in Los Angeles for the World Championship of Performing Arts which is also branded as the Olympics for artists.

Team Brunei achieved a higher medal count compared to last year with 38 medals overall. They collected 12 gold medals, 13 silver medals and 13 bronze medals. The biggest winner was Shian Li Esther Chiam who is just 15 years old. She won the Junior Grand World Champion Instrumental Award and also collecting 6 six gold medals along the way. Awesome indeed!!

She was over the moon when she received the prize during the finals and she gave a word of encouragement to all passionate singers and performers that we need to believe in ourselves and work hard towards that goal. She was grateful to be part of the Brunei Team and she also made new friends globally and the great thing about music is that it unites every walks of life, regardless of age and race. She shared that there are so many opportunities for us and they are untapped.

Her younger sister Eden Chiam earned an Industry Award and also earned one gold medal, two silver medals and two bronze medals and she only had weeks to prepare for the event. So that’s not pretty bad for an achievement. I have mentioned previously in my post how team Brunei has made it big at WCOPA finals in Los Angeles, considering they only sent 9 representatives as compared to the aplenty from different countries. Having 5 semi-finalists and 3 finalists are considered “over-achievements” as they are plenty of talents out there worldwide.

Maria Grace Koh and Joanna Kwan are still outstation and didn’t join the entourage upon arrival at the Brunei International Airport. Both are finalists for the WCOPA finals and I’m proud of their achievements.

Elizabeth Sim who dreamt of Hollywood was very happy of her achievements and enjoyed every moment. She won Senior Acting Drama category and also earned 5 medals along the way. Ruby Chong, earned herself two medals and an Industry Award while Bridget Ang earned two medals. Norhidayat Hj Ahim earned 5 medals while Adi Daini earned 3 medals.

They will be having a Brunei WCOPA showcase this coming August at the Jerudong Amphitheater and it will be on the 23rd August 2014. For updates, you can follow them @officialwcopabrunei on instagram for updates.

The product was launched by Pg Shamhary Pg Dato Paduka Mustapha, Managing Director of Brunei Shell Marketing at the Royal Bekshire Hall, Royal Brunei Poll and Riding Club.

The new product Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 is top of the line product and it is made from natural gas with Shell PurePlus technology. It’s the most advanced motor oil in the market and it is able to meet up the demands of the latest cars. Because of its pureness and clear base oil, it enables Shell to develop superior lubricants. Just imagine using the Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 on your old engine and it will be able to keep your engines to factory clean.

In his speech, the managing director pointed out more benefits of the new Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 such as offers superior friction and corrosion protection and also improved fuel economy (by 1.4%). He is confident that this will meet the demands of motorists and drivers who seek high quality motor oil to deliver the best performance.

Recently BSM also participated at the ASEAN Consumer Fair at the ICC to educate the public on the new product Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 and its benefits.

So what pizza are you? Recently the media and food bloggers were given a special treat to try out what Pizza Hut has to offer with their 26 enhanced pizzas. So what’s the difference? It’s chunkier for sure and mozzarella cheese is made to perfection with the combination of the special sauces and the type of crusts you desire.

You can try out the different tiers such as the Supremes or the Gourmet Series or your All-Time Favourite. As for the sauces, you can request for the Classic Pizza, Sweet and Spicy, Creamy Garli, Alfredo Cheese and Texas BBQ Sauce. As for the crusts, there are choices such as Golden Stuff, Cheesy Bites, Whole-Wheat Italian, Whole-Wheat Crispy Thin and all-time favourite Pan Pizza.

My favourite so far is the new “Spicy Garlic Chicken” which is an enhancement from the ever popular Honey Garlic Chicken Pizza. You should try it 😀

During Ramadhan, patrons can try all the 26 pizzas in different crusts in Pizza Hut’s Feast Buffet, which will be offered for Sungkai at only $10 per adult and $7 per child under the age of 10.

World Cup Update 
 

Check out the latest podcast of the Dugout Treble with co-host Jason Rumpun and producer Abu

I’m qute disappointed so far with Brazil. Yes, the host nation as they were pushed to the brink against Chile last night. Being the host nation, this is a very disappointing display by Brazil and if they were to have the same performance like last night, they won’t stand a chance against Colombia who beat Uruguay 2-0. Chile was pretty close from snatching the victory if it wasn’t for the bar that saved the blushes of Brazil from an excellent Pinilla’s strike near the end.

Probably the worrying factor are the strikers at Brazil’s disposal – Jo and Fred who haven’t yet to impress in the tournament and further more, Hulk was just showing his brilliance on the pitch after a lackluster performance in the first three matches. I don’t see Brazil heading as far to the finals with France and Germany also breathing down their necks.

Now Colombia is one team that many have not taken account for. They are a compact team with many creativity in attack with the likes of star player James Rodriguez, and Juan Cuadrado and they even topped the group stage with 9 points. Though the group stage didn’t possess much threat, they shone where other competent teams failed to when going against weaker opponents. I can see Colombia reaching the semi-finals but it will be a harder test either against France or Germany if one of them reaches the semis.

Of course, the biggest news that have faded away is the banning of Luiz Suarez for his biting incident in the Uruguay-Italy match. I believe the suspension given to him by FIFA is still kinda lenient considering the fact that this is the third time Suarez has been fined and suspended for similar incidents. As a Liverpool player, I am disappointed and this shows old habits die hard. I’m not sure what’s the future lies now for Luis Suarez and Liverpool.

So who are my picks for the rest? Germany to win, France to win, Netherlands to beat Mexico, Costa Rica to go through, Argentina to beat Swiss while Belgium will edge USA.

 


Chiellini bitten by the ever hungry Suarez
 


Suarez claims that he lost his balance *Yea right*
 


Neymar might need his other 10 to show up
 


James Rodriguez was simply awesome and he has now scored 5 goals
 


The most animated coach on the pitch – Miguel Herrara and he is one of the lowest paid coach
 


The expensive flops – Cesare Prandelli, Coach of Italy, Fabio Capello of Russia and Roy Hodgson of England – the top three highest paid coaches that failed to bring the team past the group stage
 

  
 

 

Updates from Consumer Fair 

 


Do check out the new Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology at Brunei Shell Marketing booth at Plenary Hall. The new product will be in the market by July I believe and BSM will be having a special promotion on their existing products soon.
