The Plus+ Anniversary Charity Run is an event being held in conjunction with World Heart Day and whose mission it is to bring awareness to cardiac diseases and cancer. These illnesses can be silent killers – sometimes showing little-to-no symptoms. Seemingly healthy people can be affected and by the time symptoms occur it may be too late to help. We need to continue to raise awareness and to search for cures.

Plus+ Brunei believes that knowledge about these types of diseases can prevent a number of cases from occurring. Our magazine articles aim to teach how to become heart healthy, increase fitness levels, and decrease risk factors. And because we believe so strongly in this message, we started the Plus+ Anniversary Charity Run in conjunction with World Heart Day to bring awareness to the community.

Today, Plus+ Brunei organised a sharing session – “Hear A Beating Heart”, the untold stories and experiences faced by cardiac patients and their family members at Royal Brunei Recreation Club. The highlight of the talk was Mumtazali Mohd Abdul Aziz who recently made headlines for being the first person in Borneo to have successfully received a Left Ventricle Assisted Device (LVAD) back in 2014. To date there are only four patients in Brunei fitted with the device, which aids the heart in distributing blood to the rest of the body.

The device requires the patient to carry an external battery pack at all times to power the pump, which introduces complications with making sure the environmental conditions suit the device such as making sure it’s protected from the rain and extreme heat. At night, the device is plugged into a machine that powers it while the patient sleeps.

The event was moderated by Chris Woo with three special guests, Mumtazali Mohd Abdul Aziz (a patient), Dr. Sofian, Cardiac Specialist and Dk Hjh Mas Joliwane Pg Hj Tejudin from the Ministry of Education.

A large number of people flocked to International Convention Centre (ICC) to witness the launching of the ‘Letop Lebaran’ expo, organised by Battle Pro Marketing and Management Services (BattleProMMS).

The exhibition was officially launched by Datin Hajah Asmah binti Haji Abdul Rahman, wife of Minister of Education. More than 80 vendors are taking part in the expo from June 30 until Sunday, July 3, 2016.

Most of items sold at the expo are especially used for the upcoming Hari Raya celebration.

In his welcoming speech, Haji Syed Mohd Yassin bin Haji Syed Anayatullah Shah, the founder of BattleProMarketing & Management Services said, “The event is held to answer His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s call that urged local youths to be involved in business.”

Battle Pro Event has been organising activities since 2014 to help local entrepreneurs.

He said Letop Lebaran provided an opportunity to entrepreneurs from foreign countries to market their brand in Brunei. At the same time, it provides a platform for local entrepreneurs to further develop their business and enhance the nation’s economy. You can follow their live updates on @letoplebaran on Instagram.

KLIHF 2016 
 


The KLIHF 2016 is back in Brunei from 2nd June to 5th June. Follow their Facebook Page (click the image)
 

  
 

The new E 300 Edition E Masterpiece 
 

Jati Transport Sdn Bhd, the authorised distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Brunei has introduced the E 300 EDITION E Masterpiece last weekend at Jati Transport Gadong showroom.

The E 300 EDITION E Masterpiece is powered by a 6-cylinder 3,498cc petrol engine that develops 252hp and 340Nm of Torque.

 

 

 

 

The special edition features a Special EDITION E badges on both sides of the vehicle. The front is fitted with the Full LED Intelligent Light System. For the best possible visibility on country roads and motorways, when cornering and on bends, the low beam mode of the LED Intelligent Light System automatically adapts to the weather, lighting and driving conditions. The LED Intelligent Light System thus makes a key contribution to safe driving. LED technology impresses with its very low energy consumption, long operating life and pleasant white light that comes close to the spectrum of natural daylight.

The interior of the vehicle has been refined with the high-grade leather upholstery. The harmonious interior is characterised by the centre console without selector lever, as well as a multifunction steering wheel with DIRECT SELECT lever and shift paddles.

Furthermore, the COMAND Online and Rear Entertainment system come as standard in this special edition. Navigation, telephone, audio, video, internet – with the COMAND Online control and display system the driver is able to keep these and many other functions in view and under control.

Information is shown in high resolution and in colour on a 17.8-cm (7-inch) media display. The Rear Seat Entertainment System with DVD player provides passengers in the rear with their very own programme of entertainment. Two 20.3 cm displays and Kleer wireless headphones ensure brilliant picture and sound quality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Edition E is also packed with safety features like the COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, which helps to significantly reduce the risk of a rear-end collision, ATTENTION ASSIST, which is now able to warn of inattentiveness and drowsiness across a wider speed range, and also inform the driver about his level of fatigue and the amount of driving time which has elapsed since the last break.

In addition, the vehicle also offers are a number of assistance systems such as the Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Active Parking Assist, etc. Lane

Lane Keeping Assist employs a camera to recognise when the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of its lane, duly warning the driver by means of pulsed vibrations through the steering wheel.

Blind Spot Assist employs radar sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spot and duly provides the driver with visual and audible warnings.

The Active Parking Assist system makes it easier when searching for a parking space and when entering parallel and end-on parking spaces and leaving parallel spaces. The system automatically steers the vehicle into parking spaces, relieving the driver of the work of steering and braking.

Yesterday, Jati Transport held a viewing session plus test drive for potential customers at their Gadong showroom.

Tourist SIM cards, I like 😀

Progresif has made it simple for tourist or visitors to sign up for sim cards for their temporary stay. Now they can register themselves at the newly launched flagship store at the Brunei International Airport.

Now for those on the tourist package, you can access the Tourism Development Department’s (TDD) website – www.bruneitourism.travel – without incurring data charges. Isn’t that ultra cool? 😀 So do check out the Visitor Plan SIM Package which is only available at their outlet at Brunei International Airport.

This is a good strategy for both Progresif and Brunei Tourism as this will help to promote places of interest in Brunei and also help the growth of the local economy. Basically, this won’t also stop if you are a local too to get register for this particular sim card.

This is how Progresif is giving back to the community and not just visitors but also the youth and students can benefit from this convenience. I truly love the idea. Good job on Progresif on such initiative.

Progresif said subscribers can sign up for the Visitor Plan for $10 for one-week validity which comes with a bundle of 10 minutes worth of IDD (International Direct Dialling) calls, 10 international SMS, 50 minutes of local calls, 50 local SMS and 1 gigabyte of local data.

Present during the launch were Dr Hj Abdul Manaf Hj Metussin, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism, Yang Mulia Edzwan Zukri POKJP DSS Hj Adnan, Board of Director of Progresif, Bob Gill, Chief Sales Officer of Progresif, Devin Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer of Progresif and Hjh Nurul Haniah Hj Jaafar, Head of Legal and Regulatory of Progresif.

The Kuala Lumpur International Hijab Fair (KLIHF) is set make a return to Brunei at the International Convention Centre (ICC) from June 2nd to June 5th. After the success of last year’s event, it’s no doubt that they will be back and yes, they are. The organisers just finished their KLIHF 2016 PWTC last weekend in Kuala Lumpur and it was a huge success.

At a press conference at the ICC recently, Mona Din, Managing Director of WOJ Wealth Sdn Bhd,the co-organiser of the KLIHF said that the event was timed to help prepare for the upcoming Hari Raya.

Featuring 200 booths with vendors from Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia, KLIHF will feature showcase the latest collections and trends, and is has a full roster of activities from business forums and hijab styling tutorials and meet and greet sessions with Malaysian artists and designers.

Following feedback from last year’s event, Mona Din also stated that entry to KLIHF would be free. The organisers have collaborated with Stars Media (event coordinator) and D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd (event contractor) for the four day event.

For more details on KLIHF, check out their Facebook page under Kuala Lumpur International Hijab Fair or you can contact the organisers at klihfofficial@gmail.com

Coming soon near you. Recognise the logo?
 

I have been out of the local news for quite some time and recently I’ve been catching up with what I’ve been missing since my 10 days of hiatus from the Brunei scene. It seems there are many things happening though I claimed that it’s gonna be a slow month. This month of May is swamped with events and more food reviews. BHC Magazine will be turning 3 years now and there will be a huge event known as the KL International Hijab event at ICC starting Friday. I’m also excited about the new car which will be unveiled to the press from Ssyangyong which is a compact SUV Tivoli.

Rebranding

 

I always like when a corporate company goes to a rebranding process. Past two years, it was been Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) where the national carrier gradually change their overall look and appeal, bring a new level of hospitality as well as replacing some older planes with the Dreamliner 787. The same goes to another local Telco in Brunei formerly known as b•mobile communications. With the new name Progresif Cellular, they have been taking Brunei by storm in recent weeks with their aggressive marketing campaign.

Last weekend, Progresif Cellular opened up their new flagship store at Tanjung Bunut which was unveiled by the Minister of Communications. The Telco revealed their new logo and colour brand to have a refreshing appeal to the eyes of the public. Progresif Cellular have been gaining traction after announcing amazing offers such as FREE annual fee forever (now that’s a first) and now they introduce their handset and credit deals with Vivo and Huawei phones. I have strong believe that Progresif Cellular is heading the right direction and listening to the needs of the customers. Just don’t expect all the miracles at one time. They are indeed progressing step by step rather than not progressing at all.

Thumbs up to the stakeholders and the decision makers on Progresif Cecullar’s direction. You have certainly had me sold. Time to invest in a secondary smart phone.

Donations pouring

 

One thing great about our community, we have a sense of contribution especially when there are mishaps locally and internationally. We all are very familiar with the recent earthquake at Nepal which has taken thousands of lives and the country is still in mourning and in shock of the catastrophe. Many NGOs and individuals have taken steps to raise funds and also donating necessary items for the victims of the Nepal earthquake.

Last Monday, Raddison Hotel and Fitness Zone joined forces to donate items and handed over the donations to a representative from Nepal, James Shakya who is the manager of the Gurkha Palace Restaurant and Catering. He was overwhelmed with the kindness from the local community and they have managed to raise more than 10,000 kg of aid. As for now, they are in need more of medical aid and supplies. Those who can assist in this matter, you can donate to Fitness Zone.

KLIHF this weekend

 

KLIHF stands for Kuala Lumpur International Hijab Fair and it’s happening this weekend starting Friday. This will be the second event of its kind and it is being dubbed the biggest Muslimah Fashion Trade Fair and it will make its way at ICC. So what can you expect? It will feature more than a hundred booths from various countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore and Turkey, will gather local and international designers, brands, retailers and wholesalers, including textile, fabric and accessories suppliers related to Muslimah fashion.

There will be popular Malaysian Muslimah fashion brands such as Mona Din of Hajaba, Farrah Adeeba of Najjah and Madeena by Mizz Nina. I hope to see Nina as I knew her personally from the days of Teh Tarik Crew. I shall be updating more stories on this event pretty soon.
