Azeemah raised £643 
 

Azeemah Zaki trekked to the summit of Mt. Snowdon (highest mountain in Wales) and it was part of her fundraiser to donate to the Human Relief Foundation for the children of Syria affected by the war.

The trek was organised by University of Sheffield’s Islamic Circle and she managed to raise £643 for her cause as she needed at least £150 to trek the mountain. The University of Sheffield’s Islamic Circle raised a total of £8,279 in the end. Awesome!! Below are the pictures shared by Azeemah during their trekking journey at Mt. Snowdon.

 

 

 

 

 

  
Volkswagen Customer Day
 

Yesterday, Maju Motors, the authorised dealer for Volkswagen (VW), held a customer’s day. Lots of Volkswagen customers showed up with their car and posed for the camera. There was also free BBQ food being provided and music for entertainment. This was one way of appreciating Volkswagen customers from Maju Motors for their continuous support. You can view more photos here from their Facebook Page.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  
 

 

The Sh’Mo’ Down 
 


Zul-Fadly (Happy Birthday bro)  with the Jae of Chaps & Rebels
 

Movember Brunei this year will feature, for the first time ever in Brunei, a ‘Mustache’ competition called The Sh’Mo’ Down. The competition is divided into three categories; the Thickest Mo. the Hippest Mo and the Innovative Mo.

Currently there are a handful of ‘MoBros’ who have registered and it will be very interesting to see the quality of mustaches being ‘groomed’ seriously in Brunei. It’s a growing trend here as the men are slowly becoming more aware of how they present themselves in the public. Registration is still open and all you have to do is email your name and contact number to our email, movemberbrunei@gmail.com

This year we have the support of Chaps & Rebels, a local barber shop owned and run by our own local guys who have paved the way for those seeking the ‘gentleman’ look. An online entrepreneur who sells beard oils on instagram and goes by the ig account, @DreamBeardBWN. Armtirx enterprise who has agreed to print the limited edition MovemberBrunei Tees. Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Brunei for agreeing to become our official venue for the Sh’Mo’ Down.

Movember Brunei also has amazing support from the social media like Facebook and Instagram. The hashtag #movemberbn is getting new feeds everyday. Huge thanks to everyone and anyone on the social media platform who has repost, retweeted and shared all things related to Movember Brunei, Thank you very much!

Growing a mo in Movember is not just a fashion statement but the true message and responsibilty that comes with it. The ‘Mo’ represents the awareness. If someone asks why go through all the trouble of growing a Mo in November? One can say because we care! Its not a trait of a Man to share that they are ill/sick. However, the number of men affected by cancer is as many if not more than women. Movember does not just highlight testicular cancer or prostate cancer, it covers depression as well and men’s health in general. Do it for the grandfathers, fathers, uncles, brothers, cousins, sons, nephews and grandsons who have been fortunately survived or sadly, unfortunately, did not make it through.

If you believe that prevention is better than cure, then go get checked! Grow that mo because you care! We grow it because we want the future generation of men to be confident and be able to remove the stigma that men do not get or rarely get sick.

Nomadic Lion walks the talk 
 


I finally get to meet an inspirational icon for humanitarian, David Atthowe famously known as Nomadic Lion for his humanitarian project
 


He was excited to meet up my good friend SY and yes, David does own a smart phone (Nokia)
 


Did you know that his bag pack weighs at least 10 kilo? So what’s inside the bag? His notebook, camping gear equipment, hammock, 2 set of clothes, medical kit and survival kit to name a few. He uses a trolley which he hopes to refine to make it more practical for his walking journey.
 


Did you know that he loves cheese cakes? He applauded on the cheese cakes he tried at one of the places near Mount KK and the best he tried was in Europe. So peeps, anything with baked cheesecake, he is sold 😀
 


David walked from indoor stadium to Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources and he was greeted with the team from Tourism Development Department headed by Mariani Sabtu, Acting Director of Tourism Development Department.
 


During that 1 kilometre journey, he had some runners joining the short walk with him.
 


David talking to the media at the press conference
 


A notice that David will be heading to Sports School on Saturday morning
 


He prefers to walk in this than sneakers and he hardly gets blisters even on his sole. Amazing!!
 


Seng Yee’s wish came true and she caught up with David

Wear It Pink, Wear It Proud 

ZALORA, Asia’s leading online fashion destination, unveiled an exclusive new collection during a private showcase event at Black Box MAP, Publika Solaris Dutamas, on November 4th. PRIDE Collection by Jovian Mandagie for ZALORA, brought to you by Bank Simpanan Nasional features 18 looks that incorporate the symbolic pink ribbon in support of breast cancer awareness.

“It’s an honour for ZALORA to host this fashion show. We are truly inspired by the survivors and we anticipate great support from the public,” said Managing Director of ZALORA Malaysia, Giulio Xiloyannis. He further explained that all profits will be directed to Pink Ribbon Deeds (PRIDE) Foundation to aid in their research and treatment efforts for breast cancer patients. ZALORA hopes to raise over RM150,000 for the cause.

“Neither ZALORA nor Jovian Mandagie will make any profits from this launch, we seek to generate as much awareness as possible for PRIDE’s noble cause and both myself and Jovian are proud to have been given the chance to invest our time and abilities into something far more important than mere everyday business,” continued Xiloyannis.

The star-studded event was attended by local celebrities such as Megan Tan, Serena C. and Nadine Ann Thomas, socialites as well as esteemed members of the media. The event also showcased and celebrated some of PRIDE’s breast cancer survivors in honour of their resilience and strength against the illness.

“PRIDE Collection by Jovian Mandagie for ZALORA, brought to you by Bank Simpanan Nasional is designed beautifully and with passion to celebrate the strong spirit that breast cancer survivors embody. It is the perfect representation to show how tough women can be” said local renowned designer, Jovian Mandagie.

Dato’ Azrene Abdullah, Chairman of PRIDE highlighted the importance of raising awareness for the cause “as breast cancer affects 1 in every 19 of all the important women in our lives. Which is why support from noble corporations such as from ZALORA, Jovian Mandagie and Bank Simpanan Nasional is important and would go a long way in creating more awareness and education for early detection, as early as college and secondary school level even,” she added.

Caring Cup campaign

Surprise turned into joy for Siti Liyana Aziemah Rohhizal last weekend as she was awarded with a certificate and vouchers for her honesty at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (The Coffee Bean) outlet of The Mall, Gadong.

Siti Liyana, who is also an employee of the coffee franchise, did not expect the reward as she was just merely doing her civic duty.

“All I did was to give the wallet to my manager that I found during my cleaning duties,” she said.

The owner of the wallet, Thomas Chieng Chiew Hong, explained to The Brunei Times that he didn’t know that he had lost his wallet until the following day.

“I really appreciate her honesty and I believe that her parents as well as the company are very proud of her,” he added.

(Blood donation drive) On the sidelines, more than 40 members of the public were seen rolling up their sleeves to bleed for a good cause around the premises of The Coffee Bean as they joined in franchise’s Caring Cup blood donation drive, which started at 10am.

A representative from the blood donation bank said, “The amount of people donating is a source of encouragement and we are happy to know that members of the public are assisting in replenishing the blood supply of the national blood bank.”

First time donor Siti Iffah Hazirah Abdus Amat said that she wanted to donate blood because it will also contribute to saving the lives of accident victims and those who are about to undergo surgery.

Meanwhile, Wahidahtul Nadhirah Mirhassan, who is also a first time donor, said she realised that donors who donate regularly and voluntarily are the community’s life source.

“I have plans to donate blood in future and would like to encourage everyone who is capable to do so,” she added.

The Coffee Bean hopes that its efforts in holding such campaigns will encourage more local companies to roll up their sleeves and brave the needle to help ease the shortage of blood at the hospital.

Malppy.com 
 

If anyone of you might have noticed, Malppy.com has recently made some changes to their website. According to the Founder Simon Soo, Malppy’s goal has always been improving their customers’ shopping experience through continuous improvements on their products and customer service. Malppy has learned and taken customers’ feedback into great consideration on their new modification.

One of the new changes consist of the new product grouping categorization. This new fashion categories separation is said to be more friendly to shoppers from their survey. Another change also involves the enhancement of their search engine for quick searching. It was also learned that they have eliminated a good portion of their less popular products and are replacing them with even better quality and attractive ones. I was told to expect more major changes on their upcoming product line… So I guess we will have to keep an eye for that for awhile.

On the obvious side, we can tell they are featuring their whole new Smart & Formal selection for Men & Women. According to Marketing Manager Shenny Tang, this is specially selected for those graduating soon or who have just graduated and are preparing their first step into their working life. “We believe the way one looks will create a lasting impression on others” quoted Shenny. Of course, the range is also for those who are already working. Quality of this range of products is specifically and carefully hand-picked through numbers of supplier to ensure its a good wear everyday by our newly appointed Product Manager Anna Yong.

Lastly, due to their VISA payment that is currently undergoing an upgrade (which is expected to be back anytime soon), they are promoting PAYPAL payment (which is one of my personal preference) for their current purchase. Customers who pay by Paypal on Malppy’s product from now until end of the month will receive a 10% rebate off the amount they are going to spend for their next purchase. Sounds good enough for me. So online shoppers, check them out at www.malppy.com and lets have a online shopping weekend.

Green Curry…. This has been one of my favourite dish in general – the Green Curry Chicken. Now it’s available at KFC Brunei for a limited time only and the launch of the Bangkok Green Curry Combo was also coinciding with KFC newly opened branch at Brunei International Airport at the arrival hall.

The green curry gravy is a blend of spices, chillies, garlic, onions, ginger, galangal and coconut milk as well as a handful of green peas. It is served with KFC’s all-time favourite Hot and Spicy Chicken, along with hot steamy white rice and signature side dishes originated from KFC Thailand.

The KFC Bangkok Green Curry Chicken Meals are available in several combo options.

Combo A includes two pieces of chicken, green curry, white rice, a regular-sized coleslaw and a carbonated drink, all for the price of $7.30.

Combo B includes three pieces of chicken, green curry, white rice, and a carbonated drink at $8.90.

Meanwhile, the Green Curry Feast A, which would feed a group of four to five people, includes nine pieces of chicken, three white rice, two green curries, three regular- sized coleslaw, and four carbonated drinks at an affordable price of $28.90.

The Green Curry Feast B, on the other hand, is priced at $42.90 and includes 15 pieces of chicken, four white rice, a large-sized whipped potato, a large-sized Cheezy Wedges, three green curries, and a bottle of Pepsi. The green curry is also available as an add-on for just $0.90.

Anniversary Promotion 
 


It has been ten years for IA Salon and now they are running a special celebration promotion for their customers. I believe this salon has done a lot for the community especially towards the charitable foundations. Recently they held an interesting night which was for the Blind Association where IA salon and Fun Bee Park collaborated with Sorriso Restaurant for a “Dining in the Dark”.

It’s good to see a passionate and visionary leader such as Cecilia Lee, the lady behind IA Salon and she’s always traveling abroad to gain more knowledge in hair fashion, make-up and so on. In life, to learn more about yourself and your surroundings, you need to take that leap of faith which comes with risk and Cecilia Lee is no stranger to this.

Do try out their special promotion which runs until end of the year. You can reach for bookings by calling 242 3232 and business hours is from 10am to 8:30pm. IA Salon is located at ground floor, The Mall, next to Guardian.

Moroccan cotton which is usually $12.90 will go for $3.90 per meter. The regular sale $1 meter is back again for your cara melayu. Tudong and door mat also going for $1. If you want cucul for Hari Raya, this is also the best place to buy.

I kinda like the new interior of YMRM Serusop and it feels refreshing and unique as well. This is a great way to entice their regular patrons and appreciate them for their continuous support. The upper floor will be opened after Hari Raya. For now, enjoy the freshness of YMRM at Serusop branch which went for 2-3 months of renovation.

Brunei bring back 38 medals 
 


The participants from Brunei Darussalam after the WCOPA finals in Los Angeles

Last year, only one made it the finals – Fakhrul Razi in the Senior Vocal category in the World Championship of Performing Arts 2013. This year, Brunei representatives went a step further. Three Bruneians made it to the finals – Joanna Kwan, Shian Li Esther Chiam and Maria Grace Koh also known as Eia. One Brunei won the Junior Grand Champion for instruments at the WCOPA 2014 edition.

Only 15, Shian Li, is no stranger in the Brunei music scene. With the guidance of her family especially her mother Lily Chiam who runs Expression Music, Shian Li have been getting praises for her talent and she has been performing for private functions and I ever hired her once for a birthday party and I was just amazed. I had no doubt that she will excel in what she does and after knowing that she will be representing Brunei in the WCOPA this year, I knew her time has come and all that hard work paid off.

Shian Li shared, “This week has been absolutely amazing and it went by so fast! Being here in Los Angeles, I just want to tell the talents out there if you believe you can do it and work towards it an and you are keen of performing arts, this is a great opportunity that many open many doors for you.”

Shian Li was the top of the crop as she won all gold medals in her respective category in Junior Instrumental – Classical, Contemporary, Jazz, Open and Original. She won her sixth gold for being in the finals of the WCOPA 2014.

Another finalist was Joanna Kwan who won gold for reaching the finals in the Senior Acting category. She also won four silvers in Classical, Contemporary, Open and Comedy and one bronze medal for Drama. Furthermore, she was the only Bruneian to be awarded with a BND 10,000 scholarship to the New York Film Academy and one industry award. I have seen her performed in Brunei and she’s just amazing. What a great choice to select her as a Brunei representative! Much deserved though Joanna was only aiming for the experience. Awesome!!

Starlet Maria has finally reached greater heights as compared to her previous outing last year in WCOPA 2013. This year she went two steps better by reaching the semi-finals and the grand finale. What’s best is that her original songs were recognized and made it to the finals. This really shows that we Bruneians have talents. Maria earned herself 4 gold medals including being a finalist. She also earned 1 Silver for Pop and 1 Bronze for Broadway in the Senior Vocal category. I’m proud of you, Eia 😀 I can imagine the sight of your parents when you touch down Brunei next week.

Other Brunei participants were Elizabeth Sim, Eden Chiam, Dayat, Ruby Chong, Bridget Ang and Adi Farhan which is a pretty good line up from Brunei Darussalam. Imagine this – we are one small nation and during the live coverage event, Brunei Darussalam was mentioned quite a few times on the event – firstly because of our participants for being in the finals, the announcement of the winner for Shian Li and two more mentions by Jeff the host because of our tweets from Brunei. Awesome!! Now I was wondering why Brunei Tourism only had a small involvement in this project as this show is watched by millions of people online. This would have been a superb opportunity to invest in this project hopefully for next year and to get that tiny percentage of the millions of people to be aware of Brunei alone is already considered a big achievement. Brunei Tourism managed to sponsor Bridget Ang’s ticket to Los Angeles. I do hope there will be more involvement from the relevant agency on this matter as it was proven that our talents can go that far and when they go that far, more names of Brunei Darussalam will be mentioned as it did during the finals of WCOPA 2014.

Enough of the small rant. But I’m happy to see local sponsors supporting the participants such as AEWON, Baiduri Bank, KFC and Laneige Brunei. The participants also managed to source their own sponsors such as Laily’s Bridal, Sab Five Five, Low family, Projecttunes, @brugraphic, Reyn’s Touch @ Bridal Collection, Mylol.info, Fitnesszone, @kingomar412, @haqimie267, Sri Maju Sawit and PL Sawit Sdn Bhd, Suci, Cedar Management Services and many more.

Those missed out on the finals still didn’t come empty handed. First timers Eden Chiam and Elizabeth Sim made it to the semi-finals. So overall, there were 5 Bruneians who made it to the semis. Eden won 5 medals – Original Works (Gold), Broadway and Pop (Silver) and Open and Soul, R&B and Jazz (Bronze) for the Junior Vocals. Elizabeth Sim competed in the Senior Acting Category and she earned Gold for Open and Drama and Bronze medals for Contemporary, Comedy and Open. She also won overall winner for the Drama category.

Dayat Hj Ahim competed in the Senior Vocals and he earned Silver for broadway, contemporary and World and Bronze for Open and R&B, Soul and Jazz category. Adi Daini earned one silver of Rock and Bronze for Open and R&B, Soul and Jazz for the Senior vocals with instrument.

Bridget Ang earned two Silvers for Open and Originals category in the Senior Vocals category while Ruby Chong earned two Bronze in Open and World category in the Senior Vocals category.

Summary of Awards:

1 Grand World Champion for Jr Instrumentalist

3 Grand Finalists

2 Industry Award

Recipient of 10,000USD Scholarships from New York Film Academy

12 Gold Medals

13 Gold Medals

13 Silver Medals

 

This is considered another great achievement and milestone for Brunei considering we are a small nation but with a big heart and voice. I’m still amazed that we have 3 Bruneians featured in the finals alone and we are competing against a number of talents around the world. I also want to applaud Jeffery of Prismworks for making this possible for all the participants for another attempt at WCOPA. It’s never easy to organise and the logistics and all. I do hope I can plan for next year’s WCOPA for coverage purposes (Didn’t I say that last year? haha).

Overall, I’m just truly amazed that we can make a difference and by them just being there, it’s simply unbelievable to represent Brunei. I do hope one day that performing arts will have more recognition in Brunei and this will help to bring in more support not just the private sponsors but also the relevant government agencies in Brunei Darussalam.

KFC treats YASKA kids 
 


James Kon of Borneo Bulletin interviewing one of the parents at KFC Yayasan last Saturday
Last Saturday, I had the privilege to see YASKA kids paying a visit to KFC Yayasan branch to play some games and activities. For your information, YASKA is a charity organization for Yayasan Kanser Kanak-Kanak or a foundation for children with cancer where the non-governmental organization aims to provide children diagnosed with cancer and their patients the information required to understand their diagnosis as well as provide them with moral support throughout their treatment and beyond.

Yes, guys, even kids and children still can get cancer at a young age and it can happen whether you are young or old. It was such a heart warming sight to see the kids play along during the games and being present at that very moment as if they are enjoying and cherishing that moment. It’s good to see KFC being involved with YASKA and not many attention has been given to the children, judging from the press releases in the media.

At the event, the kids were also given a meal so that they can break fast with. “Fasting is not compulsory for children and especially for the children with cancer. Though the children are undergoing treatment, the paediatric oncology ward is often decorated to celebrate for this festive season so they would not have to feel left out or often home leave is given whereby possible,” Tsara’ Nawwarah Abdullah Chen, Senior Occupational Therapist, RIPAS Hospital\Treasurer of YASKA.

YASKA’s mission is to provide information and support for children with cancer and their families, when we got to know them, we were touched by what this organization is doing and make it a point to promote them so that others in Brunei can reach out to them,” says Jonathan Bong, Senior Marketing Manager, KFC (B) Sdn Bhd.

Everyday the children are made to feel special especially during the treatment and at home and parents are often very aware of how precious these children are and the environment in the paediatric oncology ward has been filled with generous donations of educational toys and books and DVDs( often requested by the children for the latest cartoons and children movies) so the children are “entertained” and kept busy and distracted with activities. These are only possible through the various amounts of donations and activities carried by the occupational therapy staff and non-governmental agencies, added Tsara.

An Eco-Smart City? 
 


Edwin Khew will be in Brunei in August to share his idea on Eco-Smart City in the 7th National Environmental Conference. Image courtesy of CTI PFAN website.

In a session entitled “Bandar Seri Begawan as a Model Eco-Smart City”, guest speaker Edwin Khew, will share best practices on Singapore’s journey towards becoming a sustainable city; the challenges to anticipate, and strategies to overcome obstacles.

Edwin Khew is the the Chairman of Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), a non-profit organization that assists the growth and development of cleantech businesses in Singapore and the region. He is also Managing Director of Anaergia Pte Ltd, a global environmental waste to energy technology and management company with its headquarters for Asia based in Singapore.

“Being smaller than Singapore and having more resources”, Khew said that Brunei has an advantage over Singapore to become an Eco-Smart state, and remarked that there can be areas of possible collaboration between the two countries to develop and implement green technologies. Brunei can excel and surpass Singapore in developing and implementing these new technologies and can start working with Singapore at test bedding these technologies as Singapore is just starting to test bed them now.”

Asked how a small country such as Brunei can make a difference, Khew remarked that the future for all urban cities is to be sustainable, and turning its capital city into an Eco-Smart City “will ensure sustainability, where energy, waste and water will be a nexus for which an Eco-Smart City must consider and achieve”.

Khew has 35 years of experience in the industries of water and waste treatment, energy and cleantech. In the last 15 years, he began to focus on waste management, after becoming concerned about the challenges of growing volumes of rubbish and the lack of landfills in a highly consumerist and disposable economy.

In the conference, Khew will share ideas with local industry experts from the government and private sector on effective strategies to create a sustainable city with topics ranging from waste management, urban planning, and green buildings.

Now on its 7th year, the National Environment Conference will discuss pertinent issues, revolving around the theme “Brunei’s Green Future: Ideas, Strategies, Possibilities.” The conference is open to all members of the public, and will be particularly worthwhile for overnment leaders, corporate and business leaders, environmental practitioners, eco-conscious consumers and students, among others.

The Conference is organized by Asia Inc Forum in partnership with Total E&P Borneo B.V., Butra Heidelberg Cement, Baiduri Bank and Brunei Press, with the support of the Ministry of Development and Ministry of Education.

For more information, please contact Low Leng May at may.low@asiaincforum.com, or call 2226555 ext 10. Press release by Asia Inc Forum.

Shop at YMRM  
 


Galleria YMRM Tungku Link Branch
YMRM just made a name for themselves with the huge crowd during the super crazy sales a week ago before fasting. Guess what? Galleria YMRM are planning to do another soon so do stay tune to RA and my instagram for updates. As you know, Hari Raya is just three weeks away. We are almost into the second week of Ramadhan and the crowd have been flocking to Galleria YMRM’s branches at Tungku Link and Batu Satu. And of course, the most anticipated one is the YMRM upcoming renovated branch which will be open pretty soon. I shall keep you posted on that.

Galleria YMRM have quite a selection of fabric for “cara melayu” and what impressed me the most is the IMA fabric which is the Japanese cotton material. The price is higher than the normal type but now they have a promotional price where it’s being slashed from $15.90 to $12.90 per meter. What’s great about this material is that it’s of high quality and it’s pretty cooling and soothing to the skin. Last year, they have 20 different colours and this year, they have 60 different colours with the IMA material. This really shows how good the material and the trust it has coming from customers. You can look elegant wearing one without to fork out so much.

They also have good quality ones for the ladies for Baju Kurung and they have different price range from the affordable ones to the high end and of course, the quality is guaranteed. It’s no surprise that most of the tailors in Brunei make their fabrics and textile according to the management. For the ladies, if you want something more elegant as in Kebaya type, then I recommend you go fo the laces and YMRM have tons of those in both branches.

Perhaps the ladies will be more interested in the Italian silk that just arrived at YMRM stores, direct from Italy. The prices are at premium but you will see why it is expensive because of the quality and the designs are pretty unique as well. YMRM are only bringing limited designs and quantity so at least the ladies will feel more privileged.

Galleria YMRM are not only popular for selling fabrics for men and women but they are also selling in-house lights and also “cucul” lights for Hari Raya. So if you need some new lightings in your house, they have a wide selection to choose from.  YMRM already have tents outside their premise selling deco lights (cucul) and this have been their trademark for a few years already.


The containers just keep coming every week just to stock up on new items and another good reason why customers keep coming back for more

I highly recommend you to buy this particular material for Cara Melayu

YMRM has actively been giving back to the community by having special discounts every now and then. Furthermore, customers can even buy fabric as low as $1 per meter. Galleria YMRM Director, Hitesh Ramesh Bhawnani, shared how successful the crazy hour sales have been and thanked the media for the overall success. He said that customers even have to park along the highway to get into YMRM at Tungku Link. For those who didn’t know, YMRM Tungku Link held two sessions of “Special Happy Hours” sale few weeks ago.

Guess how much fabric was sold in one night alone? Believe it or not, 40,000 meters. These materials are mostly the Cara Melayu fabric and these materials come from Egypt, Japan, Korea and others. So it’s good to see more patrons coming in and buying at really affordable prices in time for Hari Raya. The usual $20 per meter was slashed to $4 per meter for that night as well.

Do stay tune for more updates on YMRM on my blog and social media platform.

Brazil pass the 1st test 
 


Now.. something just doesn’t add up here. I was disappointed with their performance yesterday and furthermore, the audio was pretty bad. I still prefer Shakira’s song or even Ricky Martin’s. The opening ceremony didn’t raise any goosebumps for me. A bit of a letdown.
 


I kinda like these costumes at least during the opening ceremony

Finally after four years, the World Cup is back!! But am I hyped up as before? Hmmmm hard to say but apparently not that fired up. I didn’t even know that the opening ceremony was last night until 8 hours before the opening ceremony, thinking it will fall today. Anyway, what are my thoughts of the opening ceremony? Not really much to shout about but the costumes were interesting enough and it was good to see children and kids participating. Other than that, it’s kinda disappointing really.

Few of my friends from Brunei were there for the opening ceremony and the first match of the World Cup 2014 between host Brazil and Croatia. Awesome!!! One of my bucket lists was to actually travel across the world to catch a World Cup match one day. That day will come but not Brazil. So a probable chance in Russia in 2018 or Qatar 2022 that I would travel there. My friends will be flying off to another destination to catch Uruguay vs Costa Rica and if I’m not mistaken, they will be catching a total of 5 to 6 matches in Brazil. Oh man, I’m so jealous 🙁

We  just recently started a podcast on World Cup news called the Dugout Treble and there will be more episodes coming soon. I have also create a McDonald’s FIFA World Cup Fantasy League. You can join my league by clicking here. Good luck!!!

Annual blood donation 
 

Green bankers rolled up their sleeves yesterday to contribute to an important cause: blood donation. The event, hosted every year, was held at the Learning & Development Centre at Baiduri Bank Head Office.

This year’s blood donation drive was organized with the theme “Everyone has a Type” aimed to help replenish the low blood supplies faced by the National Blood Bank at the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital.

Senior Manager of Baiduri Bank’s Human Resources and Finance Division and member of the Baiduri Bank Management Committee, Ms Veronica Chong, said that blood donating is a good practice, and she has been doing it every year during the drive.

“There is an overall feeling of goodness and satisfaction when donating blood,” she said. “A lot of people are fearful of donating blood because of the needle but it’s not painful, and donating only one pint of blood can save up to three lives.”

“One advice I have for them is to stay relaxed. If you are scared of needles, look away, or better yet, talk with your colleagues, I’m sure they’ll also appreciate the distraction.”

The event was organised as part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. It is an annual event held to aid patients in need of specific types of blood urgently.

The Baiduri Bank Group is also an active supporter and major sponsor of the annual World Blood Donor Day.

Baiduri Bank Group has also just wrapped up their yearly charity golf event, The Baiduri Masters – an initiative that regularly provides financial support for child development programmes in Brunei such as Pusat Ehsan, Child Development Centre (CDC), SMARTER and the Learning Ladders Society.

Recap: Film Festival 
 


It was quite a jam packed event during the Film Festival UBD 2014 (19th to 20th April 2014)
It’s not the Cannes or the international film festival but it’s a fresh start, executed by our very own students from Universiti Brunei Darussalam. I’m very proud of their achievements and I’m pretty sure the deans and the Vice Chancellor will be pleased of the efforts of the students in pulling off a great 2-day event two weekends ago at The Core, UBD.

I just hope that this event Film Festival UBD will be a yearly event and this will give more platform for other talented, young film makers to showcase their talent on the screen. The turn out was excellent as the students overachieved their target in terms of audience reception. I believe they had more than 1,000 spectators in a span of two days with 8 times slots.

Thank you guys for the experience and I hope it doesn’t end there. I also hope new sponsors will take this opportunity to help the young students when it comes to another film festival.

Bringing smiles to orphans 
 


Suherdy Suli who is passionate of helping orphans being interviewed by The Brunei Times

Last Sunday, I had a quick pit stop at Silver Jubilee Park as Suherdy Suli organised a Healthy Kid’s Day for 40 orphans as it was part of the “Community Incubation Program” from Universiti Brunei Darussalam. The Healthy Kids’ Day is a social responsibility initiative as well, initiated by the students from the program. Its aim is to advance business ventures and accelerate the success for the 12 students/participants involved.

The Community Incubation Program is also known as community entrepreneurship village and it’s an ongoing program that goes on for five weeks. The participants will undergo mentorship on the road to entrepreneurship. So yesterday was one of the programmes highlighted in terms of social responsibility and they collaborated with Suherdy who searched high and low of orphans in Brunei and bring them more joy to their lives as well as creating new opportunities such as talent in creativity.

It was the first time I saw another art gallery under the flagship of Rainforest Gallery (previous located at Kiulap). There’s a small building area at the Silver Jubilee Park and it opens every day except for Mondays. So some of the kids did their colouring activities within the premise and outside as part of the Healthy Kid’s Day activities.

What a spectacle show!! 
 


Singing the National Anthem song to kick off the show

Last year was the bomb!! So was this year’s Jerudong International School Showcase Concert. They had three shows, the first being performed internally for the students and teachers of JIS while the remaining two shows were opened to public.

I like this year’s theme which was “Movies and Musicals”. According to Principal Andrew Fowler-Watt, he expressed that how music influences us and by listening together we connect, no matter our nationality or culture.

Overall, I was super impressed with the quality from the vocals to the performers to the the musicians and let’s not forget the sound technicians and those people back stage and mostly the music coordinator who set the pace from start to finish. Sophia and I really had a great time and I can’t wait for next year’s edition.
