HIS Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Muntaqim bagged one gold and one bronze medal at the Tutong district Pencak Silat Seni Championships held in conjunction with His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s 68th birthday celebration yesterday.

Gracing the event at the Tutong Sports Complex were His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Her Royal Highness Paduka Seri Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah.

Competing for International School Berakas (ISB), His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Muntaqim took the gold medal in the seni silat mixed freestyle category while the bronze medal came from individual event, the seni silat solo freestyle category.

An event that I missed yesterday prior to other commitments but I knew it was gonna be a success. When I posted the promotional poster, it created a lot of hype because it’s something new as it involves obstacles and not just pure jogging or running. This event was organised by the Royal Brunei Armed Forces’ and it was the first of its kind. Nearly 500 participated in the inaugural event of the RBAF’s first Obstacle Course Challenge.

According to the press release in The Brunei Times, Azlina Rambli, a TOTAL employee, just took up jogging six months ago and she even struggled to run a kilometre back then. Now she’s fitter and even won the Female Open category of the said event. Now that is inspiring indeed for other athletes. She encourages everyone that it takes a lot of training and practice to overcome any obstacles and challenges.

Major Sopian has been integral in organising the event and he has a great team to help him and thanks Pg Farisan Pg Metassan for the updates on your Facebook. Hope to get more pictures from you. I believe there will be more similar events to give something back to the community and the feedback have positive as well. Congratulations to the participants and the organiser.

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.

Size does matter

We are accustomed to printers printing A4 size and smaller size ones. Maybe that’s easier to sell since not many will want to have something more than A3 size paper documents or pictures. Nowadays, it’s a slightly different story. You will see especially those in offices or even for presentations of floor plans and such, bigger and faster performance for A3 printers is a new trend.

Ever since Concepts Computer brought in Epson printer models, the business have been flourishing due to the capabilities of the Epson L series printers. Now Epson has taken a step further and launched two new A3 printers – the Epson L1300 ($598) and the L1800 ($758).

You want good quality architectural drawings or even making your posters, this is a cost effective approach and you will be surprised by the quality that these printers deliver. I’m particularly impressed with the L1800 Epson A3 printer. It is ideal for enthusiastic photographers.

So you just not paying for the money but you will know where that money is invested when you look at the result as well as the print quality.

 


This is one solid printer

Yasmine the movie is almost coming to local theaters and it’s slated for a 21st August 2014 release date as it was announced yesterday on the launch of the first official trailer. There was another short trailer (30 secs) which was the teaser trailer of Brunei’s first featured film. The latest trailer lasts 2 and a half minutes and I can’t wait for its official release.

Origin Films Sdn Bhd led by Siti Kamaluddin invited the local media for the sneak preview of the trailer at Times Cineplex. Last month, Origin Films teased the public with a four-minute clip of behind-the-scene actions from the set of Yasmine at Film Festival UBD 2014.

So guys do watch the official trailer of Yasmine the movie and all the best, guys!! Love the energy from guys of Origin Films and they all do bond like a family.

Steve Kean has turned the club around after a dismal outing last season under Vjeran Simunic. Kean shared that their opponents tonight, Albirex is a very technical side, more into possession and control as they are the team that passes the most in the league. He urges his players to be step up in this match or this could be a major slip up despite the 7 point lead.

I’m back… (I hope) 
 

Okay, it has been a while since I posted some personal thoughts on my blog and sorry, if my blog have been lacking substance (and some feel) over the last few days or so or even weeks. I just came back from my recent trips from Seoul (amaaaazzing) and Singapore for work and leisure. It has been a very busy month so far and I haven’t really spend time in taking care of myself in terms of rest. Yesterday I had a great afternoon nap just to recover this aging body of mine *lol* Yes, I ain’t getting younger any more and the big question mark has been (especially from my mom) – “When I’m gonna get married?” I only responded in silence 😀

Just to recap on my recent trips. Firstly, I was just from Seoul two weeks ago for my first coverage of Harley-Davidson and it was also my first ever trip to Seoul, Korea. Awesome city and I am definitely coming back to Seoul hopefully sometime again this year. A big shout out to Sri Sentosa Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Harley-Davidson in Brunei and thank you to the Asia Emerging Markets of Harley-Davidson for choosing me to represent the social media from Brunei Darussalam. I had the privilege to meet other social medias from different countries and of course, to visit the Harley-Davidson of Korea HQ which has such an incredible facility.

As for Seoul, it was really worth the trip and I was fortunate enough to be hosted at Ritz-Carlton Seoul and it has one of the best services I’ve ever experienced. A big thanks to Alison, the exchange student from UBD, who is currently in Seoul until June and she thought me some tips and guidance and things to do in Seoul. I have to say even 5 days ain’t enough to be in Seoul but I managed to make the most of it.

One place that I didn’t miss out was the Adidas store outlet at Myeondong which has the biggest store in Seoul if I’m not mistaken. The collections are different to that in Singapore but sadly, I couldn’t find any FX FLUX edition there. I’m gonna post some more pictures from my Seoul trip.

 


The Harley-Davidson of Korea where I had the privilege to cover the event of the Dark Custom event and also the sneaks of the Street 750
 


The Adidas store at Myeondong which has four floors
 


One of the gems that Alison introduced me to – a baseball drive pit and it only costs USD 1 for 20 hits and I was addicted to it and had another round
 


Now this is something interesting. A fresh octopus that after being sliced into pieces, the tentacles were still moving here and there. So it’s meant to be chewed until it stop moving.
 


Met new friends from Singapore – Yumiko, Shirley and Shalyn – who were in Seoul that time and they enjoyed the octopus experience 😀
 


Of all places, I bumped into one of my followers on instagram at the Myeondong Station and we chit chat for a bit. They were in Seoul for a holiday and trying out different places of interest. It’s good to know that we can be adventurous people too.
 


Now this is a whole new experience for cinema. Chairs vibrating, air mists blowing from seats, light strobes and many more. I watched The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and I kinda enjoyed the experience but maybe, just maybe it was too long for that experience alone.
 


This was my worn out map that help me during my Seoul adventure. People were asking me to download the app for directions but I opted for the conventional type.
 


Hello Anisah Han from the Brunei Embassy in Korea for the quick meet up two Sundays ago. Thank you for the hand book as well as your time to meet up
 


Some areas of Seoul can be very crowded

Such a beautiful atmosphere to see all the lanterns being lit

My Singapore trip is my 6th trip this year. This time, my trip is sponsored by Indera Motors Sdn Bhd, the official and sole agent of Jaguar and Land Rover (British Brand) in Brunei Darussalam and they invited myself, Hakim Hayat (Borneo Bulletin), Joana Tan (The Brunei Times) and Adibah (Bruneimotors) for the coverage on the recently launched Jaguar F-Type Coupé at the Red Dot Museum, Singapore. It was noted that Brunei will have be launching the Jaguar F-Type Coupé sometime in July or August 2014 and also in conjunction of their new showroom for Jaguar Land Rover.

The launch, last week, was pretty riveting to say the least. The overall atmosphere was just appropriate for such a prestigious luxury car. I love the fact Jaguar uses its DNA – innovation, Design and Performance – and Jaguar Singapore chose three of their iconic celebrities – Andre Chiang (chef), Eric Khoo (film producer) and Min Lee (violinist) as Jaguar brand friends. So perhaps, the Brunei launch will see a similar launch in a way as this is the requirement of Jaguar to have a similar set up and launching of Jaguar model. I do have to admit that the entrance while unveiling of the Jaguar F-Type Coupé made me feel some goosebumps. Amazing!! And a big shout out to Mercury Singapore for creating such a memorable event for Jaguar Singapore.

I shall be talking more of the specs of the Jaguar F-Type Coupé this week. All I can say now is that the car is super sexy. And so is the price 😀

Extended trip for Mother’s Day. Initially, I was scheduled to be back in Brunei from Singapore last Friday but extended to Monday so I could spend time with my mother on Mother’s Day in Singapore. I have never really organised or take my mom out for lunch or dinner to commemorate Mother’s Day so I thought why not now and she truly deserved this and it’s that level of gratitude that I do have for my mom who has been my influential role model ever since I was a teenager.

It wasn’t tough to arrange the flowers, cake and dinner but I was more worried about how my mom would take it since we hardly do any celebrations prior to this. The most I have given is a Mother’s Day card and that’s it. Funnily enough my mom thought that I won some big project or some sort since I wanted to treat her dinner with the rest of the entourage that followed my mom to Singapore. I believe it’s the gesture and the thoughts that count and my mom began to understand why we all did this in the first place.

The cake cutting scene was perhaps the highlight of them all. This was because I could see the level of happiness my mom was at and to me, that’s a priceless moment. Thank you, Mom, for everything, really. From the bottom of my heart, I love you and it was worth the extended trip to spend more time with you.

Blood donation 

The Second Blood Donation Drive organized by Mabohai Shopping Complex with the Blood Donation Centre of RIPAS held on 13th May 2014 received a very good response from the public.

The program, which began at 9:00 am received 17 donors from members of the public as well as staff working in the Mabohai Shopping Complex. 11 first time donors participated and expressed the wish to donate again in the future.

The blood donation drive is part of Mabohai Shopping Complex community service projects which it organizes with the valuable help of the Blood Donation Centre of RIPAS.

The Management of Mabohai Shopping Complex said:

“We are delighted to work alongside the RIPAS blood donation centre to organise this activity to increase stock in their blood bank. We are honoured that the blood donated today can help save lives. For those who have been pondering on donating, please take heart in the fact that there were 11 new blood donors today. Some were slightly hesitant at first, but overcame their apprehension with the idea of being able to help others. We aim to organise another donation in 3 months’ time.“

Should you wish to book the Event Stage of the Mabohai Shopping Complex for your events and activities, please call us on 8111623 or 8653762. Or find them on Facebook, Instagram @mabohaibrunei and Twitter.

The coin-sized device is a smartphone camera remote that connects to your smartphone or tablets via Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and allows the user to take pictures from a distance of up to 30m away and with up to 8 devices at the same time.

This means a group of friends can now put their smartphones on a table or tripod, and pose for all their smartphones and tablets together without having to go through the hassle of taking turns to take pictures, or having to take a single shot at a time. Battery life can last up to 5 years. This also means that landscape or scenery shots with the user in the photos is now made possible without having to lug around a large camera or setting a timer.

The best thing about the device is how simple it is to use. The user only needs to download the free application “mFotoGem” from the Google Playstore or App Store, and once you turn on the application, it prompts you to pair your smartphones or tablets with the Foto Onyx device. Once paired, you can go ahead to take your photos easily, just by pressing the button on the top of the Foto Onyx device.

The Foto Onyx (PCR1001) is extremely portable, and comes with a free audio jack lanyard that makes it easy for you to attach it to your smartphone as an accessory, or to wear it as a pendant.

Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant 
 


The ongoing promotion at Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant every weekend
Have you ever dine at Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant? Not many people know of its existence. You might be aware of the old Badi’ah building and it has been going through a transformation and now it’s turned into a hotel and a restaurant. I dined for the first time at Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant on the 1st floor and it has quite a spacious area to begin with.

Currently they are having a special promotion – Badi’ah Fusion Buffer Dinner. The buffet dinner offers free flow of appetisers, soup, main course, noodles, porridge, seafood, hot dishes, desserts featuring Chinese, Malay, English and Japanese flavours prepared by the kitchen staff with 30 years of experience in the food and beverage field. The dinner also includes a free flow of beverages.

Some of the standard items for the buffet dinner includes Ayam Masak Merah, Salted Egg Chicken, Mongolian Lamb, Beef Rendang, Sweet and Sour Fish, Butter Egg Fish, Roasted Poultry, Mixed Vegetables with Oyster Sauce, Wantan Broccoli and an assortment of tantalising Japanese sushi and Chinese dim sum to choose from as well fruit tarts, assorted cakes, sandwiches and more for dessert.

However, the menu will be changed every weekend night, according to Joey Kong Siow Wei, the Manager of Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant. The buffet dinner starts from 7.30pm to 10.30pm, every Friday to Sunday. It is priced at $28.80 for adults and $14.40 for children. But good news is that they are having a 20% discount on the weekends until end of March.

They will also stand a chance to win a mini iPad and smartphone in a lucky draw session. The eatery also provides outside catering services as well as banquet services to which the hotel can accommodate a maximum of 800 people.

Today’s the final day 
 

Times Square Shopping Centre has always been great in creating events and exposure for participating tenants. After the successful Japan Festival 2014 event, TSSC held another interactive event for the public, targeting the younger generation with the gimmick called “Armed for the Undead”.

This event has been a success since Wednesday and sadly today will be the final day. I saw a lot of interest after my posting on instagram last Wednesday. The “Armed for the Undead” event or more commonly known as the Nerf versus Zombies experience is an innovative form of entertainment that Times Square Management has organized specially for this year’s first school term break. With an entry fee of only $3, customers get to choose their “weapon” or Nerf Gun and walk their way into the zombie infested arena. Supported by The Brunei Milsims Cosplayers, customers were also given a short briefing of the rules to ensure a safe playing environment.

Today it will be open by 11am and ends at 9pm tonight. So if you haven’t try, you still have a chance to do so. The cost per entry is $3 and those under 5 years old will not be allowed. You can check out their updates on instagram @timessquarebrunei
