Brunei vs Mongolia 
 


Come and support Brunei tonight
Report by Syarif Rasani of The Brunei Times: National rugby captain Muhammad Redha Hj Adinin hopes they can come out on top at today’s Asian Rugby Football Union (ARFU) Asian 5 Nations Division IV tournament.

The national team will be facing a tough test against Mongolia – who have a significant advantage in size – before meeting Cambodia on Saturday. The competition’s other game will see Cambodia face Mongolia on Thursday.

“Our expectations are to definitely win the tournament,” Redha told The Brunei Times yesterday.

“We’re ready to put everything on the line to defend our home ground until the last whistle blows.

“We have the advantage of familiarising ourselves with the pitch (at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas), weather and climate changes.”

The national team will be heading into battle boosted by two successful warm up matches where they defeated the Miri Rhinos 44-21 and Labuan 28-13.

Redha noted that winning their tune up games will definitely help their confidence.

“However, the main intentions of those two matches were to see how well we played as a team as a solid pack executing all the game plan set for us and if the game plan was best suited to each and every individual’s capabilities,” said Redha.

“Perfectly executing our game plan and in dentifying the areas that we needed to work on were considered a victory to us, while winning the two clashes was a bonus,” he added.

Vice-captain Ahmad Faez Anuar admitted that the national squad do not know much about today’s opponents as they have never played against other before.

“We know that the Mongolia Rugby Football Union (MRFU) have been around for a bit and we do know for sure that they would want to win this tournament to make a statement, as much as the Leopards (Brunei national team) do,” said Faez.

“It’s going to be a tough game and I’m sure both teams will be hungry for points.

“Ideally, we would have loved to get more time and perhaps more test matches, but the camp we had has propelled and sculptured us a lot – but the real answer will be portrayed on the field this week.

“The team has bonded tremendously. Skipper Redha and I are happy with how the team is getting along.

“The brotherhood spirit is strong in this team as every player knows each other’s traits in and out of the pitch, so we know we’ve got each other’s back come game time,” added Faez.

Brunei will have four days rest before they take on Cambodia on Saturday. Cambodia beat Brunei 38-0 and 28-0 during the Division V tournament in Cambodia last year.

FIFA 14 tournament 
 


The FIFA 14 tournament is back!!

Craving for another football gaming tournament? For those familiar with FIFA 14, we will be holding a mini FIFA 14 PS3 tournament at Hua Ho Manggis Mall. It’s been a while since I organised one and this was back during my Brunei Cyber Games days. Since Hua Ho Manggis is organising a football fiesta event, I thought it would be nice to give a helping hand to an event that I enjoyed organizing.

There will be two categories to choose from:

1) World Cup (Round Robin) $10 Entry Fee

2) Knock Out (Elimination) $8 Entry Fee

You can register at Hua Ho Manggis at the ground floor during opening hours and you can choose your session (either morning, afternoon or evening slots) for World Cup or Knock Out category.

Each registrant will receive a Panini Sticker Album, a few sticker packets and some goodies as well. There will be prize, trophies and medals for the top three participants and thank you to the sponsors of this event – Red Bull, Standard Chartered Bank, Hua Ho Manggis, Panini, Armtrix Enterprise, Malpyy.com and Johnson & Johnson.  And also a big thank you to Kristal FM for announcing this event.

I shall be posting the rules and regulations soon but I strongly suggest that you bring your own PS3 controllers. The console platform for this tournament is a PS3 by the way. Sorry, it won’t on a PS4 platform just yet. Good luck to all the participants and let’s bring up the spirit of football once again in conjunction with the World Cup 2014.

FoodFuel launched 
 

After months of toil and coding, local IT start up DotRoot Technologies saw their app FoodFuel go live in the Google Play Store. To herald the event, DotRoot hosted a LaunchFest at the iCentre, teaming up with popular local e-vendors such as WonderMama, Wing-It!, Pvintaj Cupcakes, Baker Blush and many others to sell their delicious goods and also introduce them to the apps’ potential.

According to Khairul Anwar, FoodFuel is essentially an ordering application developed for the local market in Brunei to facilitate and ease the pains of ordering food from restaurants, simply with a few clicks. Users can browse through a list of participating restaurants, go through their menus and even place their orders with a few clicks. On the restaurant’s side, among the features provided is the ability to see how many users frequent the app and who are their top customers, all in a tablet which is provided upon their subscription to the FoodFuel app services.

“One year on, there have been numerous ups and downs, constant revisions, and more than one moment that tested our tenacity as individuals and as a company.

But amidst all the variables and fluctuations, there was only one constant, that we were going to launch FoodFuel, and put that vision on the map,” said Saufi Jumahat, CEO of DotRoot Technologies, in a speech during the launch ceremony.


Congratulations to DotRoot Technologies

Text by Ikhwan Salleh of The Brunei Times: Dynamic vocals, soothing music and convincing acts kept members of the media on the edge of their seats on Friday at the function hall of Freshco during a press conference.

One of the highlights of the team is junior participant, 15 year-old violinist Chiam, who told The Brunei Times that she was honoured to represent the Sultanate.

“I’ve played for 11 years and I could see that Bruneians are talented and musical in every way,” she continued, “There are more talents that need to be discovered.”

Chiam mentioned that she will performing five pieces of which three will be original creations dedicated to her mother, who will be joining the trip. “She’s been supporting me throughout the years and I love her for that.”

Organiser of the press conference, Licensed National Director of WCOPA in Brunei Darussalam, Prismworks Sdn Bhd, fondly recalled last year’s glorious participation and the hopes for Team Brunei in this year’s competition.

National Director of Prismworks Jeffrey E Cadayong said, “This is the second time Brunei is joining,” he added, “It represents the spirit of Bruneian team,” upon recalling last year’s win of the ‘Best in Team Spirit’ award.

“It is the biggest opportunity to expose these talents in the capital of entertainment and all we need to do is support them,” he added.

Cadayong also took the opportunity to thank generous sponsors who were present during the press conference, who were representatives from Baiduri Bank, Laneige Brunei, KFC and Aewon.

The Brunei WCOPA team is set to fly to Los Angeles on July 11 and will stay there for nine days. There, the team will battle against 50 countries for gold medals, the coveted title of ‘Grand Champion Performer of the World’ as well as US30, 000 ($37,552.80) scholarships to Millennium Dance Complex and US100, 000 ($125,176) grants from the renowned New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts School for Film and Television.

Dugong carcass rotting

The carcass of an unidentified sea animal believed to be that of a dugong is still at Tungku Beach, six days after it was reported to the Wildlife Division.

When The Brunei Times visited the site yesterday, there was already a foul smell emitting from the remains of the carcass. On closer inspection, it was found that most of the flesh was destroyed. More maggots and flies were seen to be devouring the carcass. Curious onlookers also stopped to look at it.

Hj Faisal Hj Nordin, an officer from the Wildlife Division told The Brunei Times that they had sent a team down to the beach to investigate the remains but could not ascertain the cause of death.

They were also unable to determine whether it was a dugong or a seal. “This is because we do not have a mammal expert. After the investigation, we just left the carcass there to naturally decompose,” Hj Faisal said. He declined to provide further details on the matter. Leaving carcasses that have been washed up ashore to decompose naturally is not uncommon.

In December 2012, a young whale measuring 40 feet long was found on a beach in Malibu — the carcass had disintegrated to such an extent that it was no longer feasible to tow it out to sea. According to an article by The Guardian, authorities had said that the condition of the whale’s carcass made it physically difficult to be moved. “It’s so embedded in sand that they won’t be able to get it out. The body will be pulled apart,” the authorities were reported as saying. The carcass of the sea animal at Tungku Beach measured at about six feet in length. The wildlife authority in Brunei urges the public to report any findings related to wildlife animals to them by calling 2774258, or emailing info-wildlife@industry.gov.bn or by contacting them through the Facebook.

EPL Masters making a comeback 
 


Steven Leslie Black, the CEO of EPL Masters and Eunice Cespedes Capalad, Marketing Manager of S-Team Solutions exchanging documents as Dato Paduka Awang Hj Mohd Hamid bin Hj Mohd Jaafar, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports looks on

After a year of hiatus, the EPL Masters is back. We have experienced two of these events so far in Brunei making its debut back in 2011. It will be called the EPL Masters Football Brunei 2014 which is bound to happen in September 2014. The signing ceremony for the event took place between S-Team Solutions and EPL Masters at the office of S-Team Solutions. Present as the guest of honour was Dato Paduka Awang Hj Mohd Hamid bin Hj Mohd Jaafar, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports.

The sponsors of the event have yet to be announced but more details will be given in the near future.

Representing the EPL Masters were Steven Leslie Black, the CEO of EPL Masters and also John Ian Holahan who were in the Sultanate. During his welcoming remarks, Steven Black said that he will do his best to bring more familiar faces mostly from Manchester United and Liverpool. He mentioned name such as Lee Sharp, Nicky Barmby, Luis Garcia, Louis Saha and even Paul Scholes to name a few. Black also hinted that they will deliver something different this year too.

He hopes to bring other new players from the EPL such as former players from Tottenham and other European clubs. Other related activities will be held which are inclusive of football clinics and meet the fan sessions. Black shared that it’s not that hard to entice former EPL players to the tournament. He gave an example of Steve McManaman who came to Brunei two years ago and it was the first time he felt comfortable and relaxed despite it being a competition but with less pressure and he was also able to mingle with his former rival team mates such as Andy Cole. He wasn’t able to do that back in his footballing years with Liverpool. So from here, you can see that the EPL Masters is not only about showcasing football at the highest level but also a heart warming environment for all the footballers involved.

Dato Paduka Hj Mohd Hamid was impressed that the EPL Masters is back. He hopes that this will help boost the football as well as the sports development in the country. This is an opportunity to improve sports tourism in the country. For your info, the Permanent Secretary used to be a national football player and he’s a Tottenham Hotspurs fan.

I’m excited for the upcoming EPL Masters Football Brunei 2014. Though it’s bound for September this year, time does fly quickly. Good luck to the organizer in making this a successful event.

 


Dato Paduka Awang Hj Mohd Hamid bin Hj Mohd Jaafar, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, hope this event will elevate the sports industry and also the football industry in Brunei Darussalam

Acer Liquid | S2 
 


Have your tried the Acer smartphones just yet?
You probably haven’t heard people use the word Phablet that often. Well, it’s like a phone and tablet combined. We have seen this successfully received with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3. Now Acer has released their now version of Phablet called the Acer Liquid S1 and S2. The Liquid S2 is the newer version with a size of almost a 6” smartphone. The market price is BND848 for the Acer Liquid S2. The first version is much cheaper, almost have the price of the Liquid S2.

So what does the BND 848 smartphone packed with? It’s entirely made of synthetic material. The Acer Liquid S2 has a combined headphone/microphone jack, which can be found on the top of the device. The USB 2.0 port on the side is primarily for charging the phablet but it can also be used to connect external storage devices or charging the device.

It uses Google Android 4.2.2 and of course, the features that I like are the Float UI (float caller, float apps etc). This means you can play your apps and not be interrupted by incoming calls as it will create another split screen for you (Ideal for Candy Crush, Flappybird players).

The webcam of the Acer Liquid S2 has a 1.2 MP resolution (1280×960 pixels) and offers decent results in good lighting. The main camera on the back of the device is a 13 MP sensor, which captures 16:9 (resolution of 4128×2322 pixels) and 4:3 pictures (4128×3096 pixels).

Perhaps the other strong point about the Acer Liquid S2 is the Ultra HD Video Capture which uses 4k technology. The Acer Liquid S2 has 16 GB storage. The Acer Liquid S2 has a 3,300 mAh battery which is pretty high.

There are many things to like about the Acer Liquid S2. I’m not a big fan of big size smartphones though. But for those familiar with the Samsung Note series, you might like what the Liquid S2 can do. I believe this is the only phablet that has LTE technology too.

Now it’s available at Concepts Computer and you can also visit their showroom for more details.
