CBTL’s Cold Brew

Coffee enthusiasts rejoice as The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf introduces the coolest brew in town. Launched nationwide, The Coffee Bean’s cold brew is made from coffee grounds that has been steeped for 20 hours in filtered cold water. Brewing cold enhances the flavour for a smooth and bold finish. Now why is this special? Because it is able to cater to those who are light coffee drinks and this has a lighter taste than the usual brew coffee or iced coffee. This is something new for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and they have ample stock to cater to the taste of light coffee drinks. So grab it while it lasts.

Training Manager, Fairuz Ibrahim shares “Our cold brew is handcrafted. During the process, every batch is carefully stirred to soak every coffee ground to bring out all of the flavours of the cold brew.” The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s cold brew is available in four flavours – original, latte, hazelnut latte and vanilla latte and is also available as a decaf option. In order to maintain the quality of the cold brew, each outlet only carries a certain amount and a new batch is made and delivered daily.  Fairuz adds that the difference between an iced coffee and a cold brew coffee are very distinct in mainly how both are processed, “an iced coffee refers to coffee that is brewed hot and then chilled by pouring over or by adding ice. Our cold brew uses time rather than heat to extract the flavours from the coffee beans.”

 

Check out the Cold Brew drink from CBTL. Highly recommended for those who does take strong coffee
 

I kinda like it actually and as for the flavoured ones, it will be vanilla latte
 

Marketing Manager, Ak Addeni Pg Tajuddin shares “There is definitely a distinct difference in flavor between our iced coffees and cold brews and we believe our customers will also pick up the difference. Our Cold brew is light and lower in caffeine and is perfect as a quick refreshment.”

Customers can enjoy a cup of cold brew for as low as $3.00. Ak Addeni adds “Customers will also find that we have maintained the pricing of our cold brews to be the same as our iced coffees. We want our customers to enjoy our coffees which ever way that brings them happiness and however they want to experience it.”

So if you wanna try the cold brew, my recommendations is not to add sugar or syrup then you won’t the whole feel of the cold brew. If you want something sweeter, then I suggest try the flavoured ones – latte, hazelnut latte (sweetest of the lot) or the vanilla latte.

Reopening at Tutong

A new look. A new feel. Baiduri Bank is heading to the right direction and not just focusing in the bandar area but also outside of bandar. Yesterday Baiduri Bank reopened its Tutong branch at its new location at Petani Mall due to its increasing demands.

Not only that but Baiduri Bank has been in spotlight for achieving accolades such as The Best Banking Group for Brunei 2016 recognized by World Finance (a record feat of making it 8th in a row) and also being awarded “Domestic Retail Bank of the Year for Brunei 2016” by the Asian Banking & Finance Magazine. Following that the global rating agency Standard and Poor affirmed Baiduri Bank’s rating of “BBB” which means the outlook set to stable. This is one of the reasons why Baiduri Bank remains in the top three banks in Brunei Darussalam.

Pierre Imhof, the CEO of Baiduri Bank, shared his appreciation to the customers in Tutong and despite the increase usage of the digital world and e-banking, having a branch presence is still relevant and important and that’s one way to create the bond with their clients.

The bank will be focusing on three main areas namely improving service quality and reliability, increasing professionalism in the workforce and introducing more products and services.

For me, I’m looking forward for this unique product named Merchant Suite which will be introduced pretty soon. With this platform, you don’t need a website to sell your products or services. I will share with you once I have more details on this cool platform and I believe it will be a huge hit among the consumers here in Brunei.

Present during the relaunch was Yusof Hj Abdul Rahman, managing director of the Authoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam who was the guest of honour and also graced the opening of the relocated Baiduri branch. Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Hj Mustapha, head of retail, Baiduri Bank and Tutong branch Sim Ai Hua led the tour of the premises.

The event had an interesting ambience. Decorated with the white followers and white fences, it gave a different touch for the invited guests. Good job, Collective Arts, for recreating a soothing atmosphere for a launch.

Interesting fact. Baiduri bank made its presence in Tutong since 2004.

PechaKuchaNight BSB 
 

PechaKucha Volume 6 is happening tonight. Not sure if the tickets are sold out but I’m looking forward to this event and I hope I managed to catch all of them as I have another event to attend. Amazing that the team have reached the 6th volume of the PechaKuchaNight BSB. Tonight it will take place at The Energy Kitchen.

 


Happening tonight at Energy Kitchen
 


All the seven speakers to share their personal experiences for your interest
The seven speakers line-up for tonight.

Finah Yusof was supposed to travel for only about 2 months. But things got topsy turvy as that extended to a life-gripping adventure of 32 months. In 2012, Finah went to many different places on the face of the globe witnessing what most of us now might never ever be able to someday. She returned just this year to tell you all of that very journey.

Josephine On is also a business entrepreneur. Her entrepreneurship journey was full of doubts and even fears. She found comfort in discomfort. Without overcoming those doubts, she would never have found Hoko Creative.

Next up, he is the youngest of the bunch. Malik Som is 17 years old and will tell you his story of his nostalgic camping experience in Ulu-Ulu Temburong. He discovered more than just a great experience, he discovered a lifetime of valuable lessons.

The business world is more than just earning money as easy as you want. There are loads of hard work, struggles and behind the scenes that many might never witness. Fatin Arifin will give an insight on the challenges that the business world could throw at you.

Hilman Omar had an unexpected reaction from his circle of friends when he drew illustrations of them. They loved it! It was gratifying to see that. And it was the first time ever showing his art towards his group of friends. *Hint* an artwork on the event/venue will be drawn by him. Wonder where that will be drawn?

Another presenter Nitisha Kashyap has lived in Brunei for about 3 years. It was challenging for her at first to adapt. Where to find friends? What activities were there to do to fill time?

Lastly, one of the speakers, Amir Noor who is rocking that Star Wars shirt. Amir is a geek at heart and loves, and we mean LOVES longboarding. Will he talk about longboarding? We shall see.

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

Ceri Cafe 
 

Ceri Cafe is located in Kiulap, same row with Mothercare and Bebeland. It’s a cosy, cheerfully decorated cafe with a red theme. Mind you they have another branch at Delima. I highly recommend that you book ahead if you wish to have your sungkai at either branch.

Now what to do they serve? Definitely Asian cuisine and the variety are just nice for those who won’t settled for a bigger buffet. The choices are just nice for my kind and it’s a good deal as well for a buffet under $12. The menu keeps changing but you can call them at 223 4997.

If you are going for ala carte, I kinda like the beef burger there. So thinking of a soothing and relaxing way to open your sungkai, try out Ceri Cafe Kiulap.

Happy Campaign

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Brunei Darussalam has created its very own localized campaign called the “Happy Campaign” to bring additional cheer to their customers, and building a stronger relationship with them. During the campaign, staff will be wearing brightly coloured t-shirts with happy messages of ‘Smile’, ‘Be Cool’ and ‘Be Happy’.

Members of the media and guests were also given the opportunity to try the new tea and coffee affogato (caffeine-based beverages with a scoop of Haagen Dazs Ice Cream), which is part of the ‘World of Tea’ category that will run until November 30 under the three-month campaign.

The affogato will only be available until November 16 and is exclusively offered in the Sultanate at the following outlets: Centrepoint, Times Square, The Mall, Maya Puri and The Brunei International Airport (BIA).
Other promotions to look out for in the campaign are the introduction of the tea latte and ice tea latte (Tea Capsule); Tea Capuccino from October 17 to November 30; High Tea Set from October 20 to November 30, which is available from Mondays to Fridays from 3pm to 6pm; a 30 per cent discount on all retail tea and coffee and free tea samples until December 31 as well as ice blends.

ACER “Happy Weekend” 
 


Richard Soo, Branch Manager of ACER (Miri) shared about the Happy Weekend deal for ACER smart phones with Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer looking on

The idea of this special promotion/gimmick is to entice everyone that mobile phones especially smart phones can be affordable. The prices of other competitive smart phones such as Samsung, HTC and Apple are in a higher end range especially those with higher specs.

I remember attending an ACER event with regards to the launch of the 5 models – Liquid Z3S, Liquid Z5, Liquid E2, Liquid S1 and Liquid S2 earlier on this year. Now ACER is having a special promotion known as the “Happy Weekend” where you can get all these models are a very affordable price. Some models are even selling half the price but the offer is only from today (Friday) to Sunday.

The plus points about the ACER smartphone are that it has what it call ACER Float where you can multitask even when you are making a phone call and you can even set specific numbers that the user can call only which is applicable when it is a company’s phone.

Do grab this opportunity of the ACER liquid smart phones at Concepts Computer, AV Audio, Dee Jay, ST Solutech and Yappe because the stocks are pretty limited. I won’t be surprised if they ran out of stock because it’s simply a super great deal to begin with. Thank you, ACER, for this opportunity.

Battle Royale 
 


Click image to find out more

On Saturday October 18, 2014 and Sunday October 19, 2014 athletes from Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia will gather at the Multipurpose Hall of the National Stadium for Battle Royale, hosted by GETFIT CrossFit.

Brunei’s first CrossFit affiliate, GETFIT CrossFit, will be hosting 80 athletes from over 10 CrossFit affiliates at Battle Royale 2014. Battle Royale is GETFIT CrossFit’s annual competition based on CrossFit movements. Much like the CrossFit Asia Regionals, their aim is to provide a platform for local crossfitters, athletes and fitness enthusiasts to challenge and test themselves through competition. The competition will start at 8:00am until 5:00pm on both days.

GETFIT CrossFit are also extremely proud to introduce the new logo for Battle Royale. The logo consists of two ancient weapons; a “Kelasak” and two “Kampilan”. “These weapons are proudly held by officers of the Royal Regalia of our beloved Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. Both are symbols of perfection of our country’s customs and tradition which date back to before the 7th century. We have always been inspired by our culture to strive to beat the odds whatever they may be, and this logo reminds us that every athlete had to start from somewhere,” said Coach Sekhon, Head Coach, GETFIT CrossFit.
GETFIT CrossFit has been working around the clock preparing for this weekend’s event. “I am most looking forward to seeing the athletes in action!” said Coach Sekhon. When asked why the general public should come and spectate, he replied: “There is a lot of hidden talent in Brunei. You would be surprised to know what they are capable of! People are always going outside of the country to compete in fitness events. This is one where regional athletes are coming over to Brunei (some for the first time) to compete with us.”

“We are proud to host Battle Royale for all, and we will do our best to put on an amazing show for the general public. Also, the Brunei Calisthenics Group will be showcasing their talents in a demo on Sunday October 19, 2014 at 12:30pm. They are incredible in what they can do on a pull up bar!”

A number of local CrossFit athletes were interviewed about Battle Royale and what they were looking forward to: “The challenge and fun,” Nizam Bakar, graduate development trainee; “Meeting my CrossFit friends and challenging each other,” Noi Harun, quantity surveyor; “The competition – against others and myself,” Delwin Keasberry, commercial manager; “Meeting new and old friends from Brunei and beyond, and to challenging my fitness,” Boon Chu Woo, medical scientist; “To another excellent event; where people can showcase their abilities and fitness. Also, to see how far they have come from the event in 2013. It should be great for both competitors and spectators alike,” Mas Idris, IT executive director; “Competition is tough this year. I am looking forward to give my best, and most importantly to enjoy every moment of it,” Amalina Abdullah, crossfitter.
