BBQ-ing at Kimchi Restaurant

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Kimchi Restaurant 
 

 


Between 11am to 5:30pm, you can enjoy 15% discount on Kimchi’s takeaway

Who loves Korean food? Well, I definitely do. To our great happiness, Kimchi Restaurant at Regent Square is again having its Ramadhan Sungkai buffet. Priced at $28.90 for adults and $14.90 for children, it offers a list of all-you-can-eat items on the menu.

The place was bustling with people when I went there. But even though the staff looked extremely busy, they took care of each table and the food did not take long to arrive either. The side dishes actually arrived almost as soon as we were seated.

But the reason behind visiting Kimchi is of course for the BBQ. The BBQ selection was filled with assorted meat to seafood to vegetables to local favourites. This time also, I took my faithful Sungkai partner, Pranika. Although she doesn’t take beef, she had three different kinds of marinated chicken as well as lamb to grill. Sizzling on the grill, they made our mouths water. If you do not feel full with just meat, you can also order rice or noodles. And let’s not forget company of the crew of Filterworks Production who have been very supportive of my project during Ramadan. Thank you so much!! (Do watch their videos).

Among the desserts, I would recommend you to try something unique to Kimchi – the Patbingsu, which is something like a Korean ABC and of course, my personal favourite dessert of all Korean desserts in Brunei. Topped with sweet potatoes, jelly and red beans, it is truly a refreshing thing to have after a BBQ. If you’re not very adventurous, you can ask for ice-cream which they serve in a generous scoop.

If Kimchi is your next Sungkai stop, don’t forget to make a booking just to secure your seats.

There’s also a 15% discount on all takeaways form 11am to 5:30pm, only during the month of Ramadhan. So do take advantage of the offers Kimchi gives. You can also visit their Facebook Page for updates or follow their updates on @kimchibrunei on instagram.

Never trust a skinny cook

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Pondok Sari Wangi
 

 

This is so far the best Indonesian cuisine in Brunei. I’ve seen many around in Brunei but Pondok Sari Wangi, hands down is the best. Maybe I’m biased because I love their beef rendang and telur beladur. Of course, their signature dish is the ayam penyet.

For the month of Ramadhan, Pondok Sari Wangi is offering Sungkai buffet and it has been an overwhelming response from the beginning. So my suggestion is to do advance booking to avoid disappointment. Their best dish is definitely the crab (different flavours) but only served on alternate days. So if you are craving for crabs, make sure that you call them for information.

The buffet line is served at all three outlets of Pondok Sari Wangi (Gadong, Sengkurong and Citis Square). If you prefer to order ala carte or set menu, it’s only available after 7:30pm.

Awesome grill stuff 
 

 

Have you tried dining at Kimchi Restaurant? If you taste bud feels for Korean food, check out Kimchi Restaurant. I am a big fan of their BBQ stuff. On my last visit a few nights ago, it was totally packed. To be honest, it has been fully booked for the past few nights. I had to do advance booking to ensure my slot. So you know what it means when it’s advance booking time. It means the restaurant is really good value for money and also delicious.

I brought Coey as my Sungkai guest and it was her first Sungkai outing too. What is her rating? She was impressed with the marinated meats for the BBQ grill which is part of the All-You-Can-Eat from the Kimchi menu. They also served the usual small appetizers for those choosing the all-you-can-eat menu.

They also offer Ramadhan vouchers. For take-away customers, there will be a 15% discount from 2pm to 5pm daily during Ramadhan.

Follow their IG on @kimchibrunei for updates or their Facebook Page. Hurry since there’s only less than two weeks left before the end of Ramadhan 😀

Shabuliciuos 
 

 

A fan of shabu-shabu and you know there have been many restaurants that offer hot pot stuff. Now they have two branches – one at Batu Bersurat and the other at Delima. I sungkai-ed this time at the Batu Bersurat branch.

They provide different kinds of Set Meals to your liking during the month of Ramadhan. I opted for the ala carte since I don’t really eat that much. But for those who choose to have ala carte, Shabulicious offer 15% discount only during Ramadhan. And guess what? The 15% discount deal ends until 2am. So which means you can also enjoy sahur at their establishment. The last order will be at 1am. Tomorrow (Tuesday, 8th July) they will be having a 30% discount for all BIBD Credit Card holders. So swipe away and enjoy the 30% discount.

Visit our branches Shabulicious Delima Square and Shabulicious Restaurant, Batu Bersurat, Gadong and dial their hotlines: 2338333 (Delima) 2451000 (Batu Bersurat).

BB gets BBB+/A-2 Rating 

 


Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank (center) with Mr. Ti Eng Hui, Deputy CEO of Baiduri Bank and Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Mustapa, Head of Treasury of Baiduri Bank during the press conference yesterday

This reminds me of math days in high school years. I’m never a fond of math subject but if I dedicate myself to it, I will do just fine, nothing more. Recently, Baiduri Bank has reached another milestone in the banking industry. In a banking environment especially Brunei which has been undergoing through many regulatory measures, banks in Brunei have to step up their game and be more “creative” in meeting customers’ demand and also falling in line with the rules and regulations which have been stricter.

So it’s great to see that Baiduri Bank has been given an impressive rating of “BBB+/A- 2” by an international rating agency, Standard & Poor’s. It was published in Bloomberg that Baiduri Bank has a “strong” business position, “adequate” capital and earnings, “moderate” risk position, “average” funding and “strong” liquidity.

In most cases, such rating will remain unchanged for the next 12-18 months and it’s very unlikely it will suffer a drop and Baiduri Bank ensures that they will sustain that rating and even better the current rating. Of course, this is a long term goal of Baiduri Bank and being it only 20 years old, this is considered a great achievement and also given the tough regulatory measures that the Brunei banking industry have to go through.

Such rating positions Baiduri Bank just below well known banks such as DBS, OCBC and UOB in Singapore which shows the great credibility of Baiduri Bank.

Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank, hosted a press conference with the presence of Mr. Ti Eng Hui, Deputy CEO of Baiduri Bank and Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Mustapa, Head of Treasury of Baiduri Bank. Imhof shared that the policy on lending will remain the same as it has been one of Baiduri Bank’s important and successful product due to its dynamic nature. With more healthy liquidity of Baiduri Bank, there are in a good position to lend more and maintain their lending policy.

Imhof also shared that the bank will be looking for opportunities regionally in the near future. He is proud that Baiduri Bank has been given the BBB+ ranking and this will indeed give more confidence internally and also to their loyal customers. Congratulations, Baiduri Bank, on your milestone.

Film Festival UBD 2014 
 


The students have work tremendously well for their assignment. Kudos to them and I salute you guys!!

The time is almost near. The Film Festival UBD 2014 is just around the corner and I can’t wait to see some of the short films done by UBD students and this is part of their assessment too. This is similar to the UBD Spectacle 2014 project (oops, I really have to pay them a visit too). There will be 8 short films in different forms of genre involving 20 students majoring in the field of Professional Communications and The Media.

So you will witness some of the innovative content the students muster in a short span of time. I was already impressed with the short films done last year by the students and I, myself, am a big fan of movies and I always love to talk about direction and film editing when it comes to movies. Of course, this is why The Popcorn Panel came about where you can catch my audio podcast on movies that I watch every now and then.

If want to read more of the in-depth objectives of the Film Festival UBD 2014, you can click here.

By the way, the tickets you can get them half an hour before the show and it’s FREE. It will take place at The Core at UBD. There are quite number of slots you can choose from to catch the 8 short films. You can see the synopsis from their Facebook page too. There will be 5 UBD made production and 3 local house production in all.

On Saturday 19th April, the timings will be 1pm, 2:30pm and 4pm while on Sunday 20th April, it will start on 10am, 11:30am, 1pm, 2:30pm and 4pm. So if you have the time, do make the time. One of the short films that I enjoyed last year was “Roast Lamb” and it will be one of the short films to be featured. You can follow them also on instagram @filmfestivalubd2014


Two more days to go
