bruneihalal gaining momentum 
 


Dr Nur Rahman,Chief Executive Officer of Ghanim International Corporation (bruneihalal) shared the vision of the company and hopes to make a strong local and international presence in the coming months
 


Guests observing the product demo of the new bruniehalal products
 

bruneihalal will be launching a number of exciting new products in the market such as the Brunei manufactured cordial, soy-based mayonnaise and meat tenderizer, among others. To demonstrate the use of the products and their modification into delicious recipes, a demonstration with RBC chefs was held at Anjung Saujana, Brunei International Airport yesterday.

I have to say that I’m quite impressed with the new direction that bruneihalal is heading with the recent leadership of Ghanim International Corporation, Dr Nur Rahman, its Chief Executive Officer. Ever since coming on board, he has been aggressive in producing more bruneihalal products not just for the Brunei market but international as well. The signs have been encouraging and bruneihalal is excited to launch newer products.

So yesterday, I managed to see four new products from bruneihalal and there are the sweeteners and salts. Not just any sweeteners and salts but they are proven to be the healthier choice. I believe this will be a big hit among the locals and I hope restaurant owners will do their best to support our local product that also have beneficial health value.

The cooking demo was conducted by Chef Maryani Hj Kachi, one of the chefs from Royal Brunei Catering and she used Cremvia natural sweetener and the Nutrisal low-sodium salt replacer. So the items are ideal for your baking products and also savoury.

It was a strategic move by bruneihalal to engage with credible partners such as the Health Promotion Centre under the Ministry of Health and also Royal Brunei Catering, the leading food & beverage industry in Brunei Darussalam.

With the recent overwhelming responses at the BIMP-EAGA Expo and the 18th Consumer Fair, bruneihalal will be having a roadshow at the Airport Mall tomorrow. You will get to sample perhaps some of the products from bruneihalal.

 

 


A natural sweetener.. Even ideal for those who have diabetes
 


Another healthier choice for salt consumption

Interesting choice from bruneihalal to come up with sugar and salt.
 

 

  
 

 

The final draw today 
 


The 25 winners of the Red Bull Boost & Win on the 3rd week at Kemuda Institute, Beribi
 

Week number 3 and more winners were feted. It was third weekly draw of the ongoing Red Bull Boost & Win contest. Interestingly enough the third prize presentation took place at Kemuda Institute in Beribi.

As usual, there were 10 consolation prizes followed by three winners with BND 50 shopping vouchers, five winners with BND 30 PowerKad and seven winners of BND prepaid card.

The presentation of prizes were presented by the Managing Director of Kemuda Institute, Hjh Hasnah and accompanied by the General Manager of Kingston Beverage & Creamery Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Red Bull in Brunei, Valentine Hon.

So today will be the day as it’s the grand draw for the Red Bull Boost & Win. Who’s gonna go back with a Sharp TV? or a Sharp auto washer? Or a Sharp two-door fridge? Of course, there will be consolation prizes as well.

The final draw will take place today at Station One, a new supermarket at Mentiri. Good luck to all the finalists 😀

In addition, functions include multi-position adjustable armrests covered with a soft pad for comfort, so the user is protected from a shoulder slant or kyphosis as a result of prolonged fatigue of the shoulder and wrist. And DXRacer chairs also comes with a headrest cushion as well as a lumbar cushion that is height adjustable as desired, for added spinal column support.

Jonathan Chong, Senior Manager with DXRacer Brunei, while speaking to media, said, “We’re very pleased to be working alongside Concepts Computer, especially with the large range of products they offer for Bruneian IT consumers. We are always looking to provide to customers top of the range and high quality computer gaming chairs and desks so with the help of Concepts Computer, we are now one important step closer.” He also added, “Now that computer gaming is also a big part of the Bruneian IT scene, Bruneian gamers who require long hours of practice in order to maintain their top tier skills will now have the ability to choose the proper chair that is crucial in helping them perform at their very best by using DXRacer computer gaming chairs and tables which are available from Concepts Computer. And not to worry for all the arden gamers out there, we will be expecting a new shipment of chairs and tables in early May, a large volume to cater to Bruneian gamers.”

The Society for Community Outreach and Training (SCOT) announced its inaugural charity run ‘The SCOT Run 2015 – Fight Poverty through Education’ recently at the Youth Centre.

The run is slated to be held on May 10 at Taman Haji Sir Omar Ali Saifuddien in the capital.

The vice chairman of SCOT Khairul Azmi Hj Salleh, at the announcement ceremony, said that the run will put an emphasis on the ongoing SCOT Education project.

“Majority of the funds to be raised (from the run) will be channeled to serve an additional commitment to provide scholarships of empowerment to deserving and most progressive students for the phase 2 of SCOT Education,” he said.

In an interview with The Brunei Times, Noor Faezatul Iradah Mohd Ali, the project manager of SCOT Run 2015, said that they are expecting more than 3,000 participants for the run.

“With the funds collected, we will use it for training students that we are yet to choose from various institutional organisations who then will be teaching English in Cambodia for the underprivileged,” she said.

David supports Earth Hour 

Mabohai Shopping Complex is proud to announce that David Atthowe, founder of Nomadic Lion, will be joining our Earth Hour Event on Saturday, 28 March 2015 at 8:00 pm.

In 2014, David, along with his partner and Indonesian friend Yusep Sukmana walked 3,350 km all the way from Malaysia to Brunei. They walked to raise awareness about the Rainforest and people of Borneo.

During our Earth Hour Event on Saturday 28th March, David will give a special talk on the topic “Walking change: connecting with the earth and how we can all use our own art to create change.”

Nomadic Lion founder David Atthowe, who hails from Norwich, England, and Yusep Sukmana from Ciamis, Indonesia, have visited a number of landmarks in Brunei and other tourist hotspots including the Ulu Temburong National Park in Bukit Patoi in their 2014 ‘Walk of Borneo’ expedition which commenced in Sabah last August 2014. The Brunei Tourism Development Department supported the effort of the duo by raising awareness of their project and how it could help as a catalyst for people to protect their environment.

 


 

The nature-loving duo initiated their first project in 2014 by walking the entire length of Peninsular Malaysia to raise awareness on the environment and its people who live in harmony with nature. A documentary of their journey will describe the current situation of the local environment and the organizations working to protect it.

The Management of Mabohai Shopping Complex said:

“ We are delighted to have Mr David Atthowe join us and share his experience and how he has used his “own power” so to speak, to help raise awareness on protecting and preserving nature. We invite the public, especially those who would like to learn more about his experience to join us on the 28 March 2015 and be part of the Earth Hour experience at Mabohai Shopping Complex.“

Raihana wins a Semi-D Home 
 


Raihana Hj Ramlee receiving a mock key to her new home from GHK Motors Managing Director Yang Berhormat Pehin Kapitan Lela Diraja Dato Paduka Goh King Chin yesterday
 

It was really surreal to be honest. I arrived the event slightly late and I missed the draw for the two cars but managed to catch the main draw where the winner will win a Semi-D house. As I was making my way through the crowd, I bumped into Raihana and asked if she was part of the GHK Mega Draw and she responded yes and I wished her good luck. Who knows after less than five minutes, her name was the last to be called as the top 5 finalists eligible to win a home.

So congratulations too Raihana Hj Ramlee and she said that she will moving to her new Semi-D home at Lumapas. Present to give away the grand prize was GHK Motors Managing Director Yang Berhormat Pehin Kapitan Lela Diraja Dato Paduka Goh King Chin.

GHK Motors Sdn Bhd ran a Mega-Draw promotion where customers who purchased Chevrolet, Mitsubishi, Daihatsu, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge from 1st June 2014 to 31st January 2015 are eligible for the Mega Draw (chance to win a home or a Chevrolet Cruze or a Mitsubishi Mirage).

More than 2,000 family turned up for the draw event and it’s amazing numbers to know that a total of 1,190 were successfully registered.

Also present during the draw were Pg Halaludin Pg Dato Shariffuddin, sales manager of Mitsubishi Division, Director of GHK Motors and Pg Dato Shariffuddin Pg Hj Matali, the Chairman of GHK Motors who presented the prizes of the Mitsubishi Mirage and Chevrolet Cruze respectively to Razami and Md Surdahri Hj Tahamid.

The Audi S3 
 


The awesome Audi Sedan S3
 

Oh my… this car is The Beast. Wait until you test drive this car (well, for serious buyers only) and you will know what I mean. I test drove the Audi S3 a few weeks ago and it was during a wet rainy day. No problem at all because the traction of the Audi S3 is superb. Furthermore, Audi S3 is a quattro® which means that it’s an all wheel permanent drive, giving you more control and power while on the wheel.

The Audi S3 Sedan almost tops the scale of superior performance and it is still a very efficient car. So what are the specs? It’s powered by a 2.0 TFSI Engine; it ha a high-performance four cylinder unit combined with cutting edge technology. You will be impressed with the six-speed transmission and guess what? it’s able to hit the 100 km/h mark in just 4.9 seconds. Now that is power.

The acceleration itself is amazing. This really helps if you need to get out of junction or our congested roundabouts and you won’t even have to think twice about making decisions when you exit a junction because the S3 will give you that confidence.

The interior of the Audi S3 gives you that sporty and luxurious feel and you will know what you are paying for. I love the fact that the sound system is powered by B & O (Bang & Olufsen).

The Audi S3 targets a niche set of customers because of its power, class and it’s simply a sexy, beast of a car. You can visit the Audi Showroom at Kiarong and enquire more about the Audi S3. If you have driven an Audi A3, just imagine a super charged A3 with a sporty look.

The students of ISB Brunei celebrated an important local event recently with plenty of enthusiasm and noise. The proceedings opened with Mr Darren Sibley, Primary Principal, reminding the students of how significant the tradition of celebrating New Year is to our Chinese community.

The children watched a short video on the ‘magic of the New Year celebrations’ and were then entertained by the Year three students performing the song ‘Gong xi fa chi’ and joined in with chorus which their music teacher Mrs Bishop had taught them in preparation. Year 2 then performed a song of their own entitled ‘Celebration’ .

As the younger children got their breath back, it was the turn of the Year 4 dancers to perform ‘The Umbrella Dance’ to the drumming of Jacob Kurian in Year 5 to be followed by a combined Year three, five and six group performance of the New Year Celebration song and dance.

Next it was the turn of the teachers to overcome their inhibitions in a very loud balloon bursting game. These were the ‘fireworks’ provided for this Chinese New Year and the children clearly enjoyed themselves.

Mr Sibley thanked teachers Yang Pen and Siti Maria for all their hard work preparing the event for the school before the children returned to their classes excitedly discussing the events of the morning. It was an excellent opportunity for the children to encounter a community tradition of Brunei as they have learned about the cultures of other peoples and places around the world.

The highlight of the day was an action packed twenty minute Wushu Presentation by the athletes of the Brunei Wushu Federation who performed through special permission from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports. Eighteen young athletes from age 6 upwards showcased the art, beauty and strength of the sport.

The wushu performance was followed by a special intermission performance by senior students of En Pointe Academy of Dance led by Regina Malabayabas, Director of the Academy.

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.

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.

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.
