The Ministry of Health and Fitness Zone will continue their partnership in promoting healthy lifestyle in Brunei, following the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement on Healthy Lifestyle and Physical Activities Programme yesterday.

The collaboration is to boost the effectiveness of the ministry’s Healthy Lifestyle Clinic Programme, aiming to combat obesity in the country. Under the new one-year agreement, which was first began in 2011, Fitness Zone will, among others, provide professional fitness instructions on nutrition and the right workout activities for participants of the clinic’s weight-loss programme.

Present to witness the signing ceremony at the Fitness Zone’s Kiulap branch was Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health Datin Paduka Dr Hjh Norlila Dato Paduka Hj Abd Jalil.

She lauded the collaboration that had been done with Fitness Zone. “The programme was successful, we want to continue it,” she said, adding that there were matters that the ministry could not provide alone. Giving example, she said, Fitness Zone provides fitness facilities that can help the ministry in carrying out its healthy lifestyle programme such as obesity control and weight-loss programme.

Fitness Zone’s Managing Director Wu Chun expressed hope that people who participate in the Healthy Lifestyle Clinic Programme could influence their family members and friends by letting them know of the benefits of living healthily. “With this, hopefully we can achieve our aim to reduce the healthcare costs in the country,” he said, adding that number of diabetes and obesity in the country can also be reduced.

The new slick ACER notebook
 


Zul Abdul Rahman, Marketing Executive of Concepts Computer, unveiling the new ACER Aspire ES1-311-C9T9 to the media
 


Check out that beauty 
 

Now notebooks have become comparatively cheaper than before. I remember forking out at least BND 2,000 in the past decade with not-so-fast specs. Now we can buy a notebook for less than $500 with a quad processor. Of course, I’m still stuck with my favourite brand which doesn’t operate on Windows OS. However, I’m always impressed with ACER’s capability to produce powerful mid-range notebooks.

Today, Concepts Computer launched the new ACER Aspire ES1-311-C9T9 which is a great target for students and smart executives because it is affordable and a highly mobile notebook. I was already impressed with the look when I saw it from a distance. It sports a chrome mate finishing and it’s kinda light as well with a 13” inch screen size. What I love about the specs is the memory which has a 4 G ram, running on low-voltage so this gives more battery life to the notebook and I’m a sucker for power juice when it comes to my gadgets.

Portability. Of course, when we associate with notebooks, you can bring it anywhere. Now this model takes an extra step where you feel the lightness and mobility of the ACER notebook and you won’t think twice about bringing it. The batter life has over 6 hours and you can stay connected all day.

Productivity. It has 10 multi touch screen which helps you to navigate the screen intuitively. Do try out the Precision Touchpad and chiclet keyboard which improves accuracy and speed when used for time-critical work.

Multi-media. Play a game, record a song, play a song, streaming movies. You can do that on this ACER notebook that has HD LED display and graphics capabilities.

SKYPE Certification. Now this is interesting. Most of the recent ACER notebooks will have this label on them and the brand is very serious when it comes to quality on video conferencing. The model meets the high audio and visual standards for SKYPE Certification. So you don’t have to worry about the minimal background noise or even the zero echo. Cool stuff.

Trust is always important and Concepts Computer has a high reliability factor 😀
Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer, believes the ACER Aspire ES1-311-C9T9 will be a huge hit as the company brought it quite a lot of stock. The reason being of its affordability with a price tag of BND 478 only and on top of that, they will also give a BND 50 voucher. This can be very ideal for students and now with the back-to-school term, this can be a good catch for them. Vincent has always envisioned to provide great quality IT products to students while making them affordable.

ACER Aspire ES1-311-C9T9 is powered by an Intel Quar-Core Celeron Processor, with 500GB of HD storage, 4GB of Low Voltage RAM, webcam, bluetooth, wireless connectivity, No Optical Drive. For more info, you can call 223 3551, 223 3552 or 223 3553 at the Concepts Computer. You can also follow updates on Concepts Computer Facebook Page.

The event was launched at the Atrium, The Mall, Gadong with the theme “Your Health is in Your Hands”.

Happy Campaign

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Brunei Darussalam has created its very own localized campaign called the “Happy Campaign” to bring additional cheer to their customers, and building a stronger relationship with them. During the campaign, staff will be wearing brightly coloured t-shirts with happy messages of ‘Smile’, ‘Be Cool’ and ‘Be Happy’.

Members of the media and guests were also given the opportunity to try the new tea and coffee affogato (caffeine-based beverages with a scoop of Haagen Dazs Ice Cream), which is part of the ‘World of Tea’ category that will run until November 30 under the three-month campaign.

The affogato will only be available until November 16 and is exclusively offered in the Sultanate at the following outlets: Centrepoint, Times Square, The Mall, Maya Puri and The Brunei International Airport (BIA).
Other promotions to look out for in the campaign are the introduction of the tea latte and ice tea latte (Tea Capsule); Tea Capuccino from October 17 to November 30; High Tea Set from October 20 to November 30, which is available from Mondays to Fridays from 3pm to 6pm; a 30 per cent discount on all retail tea and coffee and free tea samples until December 31 as well as ice blends.

In addition, customers can share the love for The Coffee Bean’s beverages and experience by tagging their pictures on social media using the official hash tag for the campaign, which is #smilebehappybecool.
Other features to expect with the latest campaign include improvements in food tags, which aims to make The Coffee Bean more engaging to customers

Certificates were also handed out by Managing Director of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf  YAM Pg Anak Abdul Mun’im to the best performing outlets from the month of July to August such as The Coffee Bean BIA, SupaSave Kuala Belait and Centrepoint.

ACER “Happy Weekend” 
 


Richard Soo, Branch Manager of ACER (Miri) shared about the Happy Weekend deal for ACER smart phones with Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer looking on

The idea of this special promotion/gimmick is to entice everyone that mobile phones especially smart phones can be affordable. The prices of other competitive smart phones such as Samsung, HTC and Apple are in a higher end range especially those with higher specs.

I remember attending an ACER event with regards to the launch of the 5 models – Liquid Z3S, Liquid Z5, Liquid E2, Liquid S1 and Liquid S2 earlier on this year. Now ACER is having a special promotion known as the “Happy Weekend” where you can get all these models are a very affordable price. Some models are even selling half the price but the offer is only from today (Friday) to Sunday.

The plus points about the ACER smartphone are that it has what it call ACER Float where you can multitask even when you are making a phone call and you can even set specific numbers that the user can call only which is applicable when it is a company’s phone.

Do grab this opportunity of the ACER liquid smart phones at Concepts Computer, AV Audio, Dee Jay, ST Solutech and Yappe because the stocks are pretty limited. I won’t be surprised if they ran out of stock because it’s simply a super great deal to begin with. Thank you, ACER, for this opportunity.

Battle Royale

On Saturday October 18, 2014 and Sunday October 19, 2014 athletes from Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia will gather at the Multipurpose Hall of the National Stadium for Battle Royale, hosted by GETFIT CrossFit.

Brunei’s first CrossFit affiliate, GETFIT CrossFit, will be hosting 80 athletes from over 10 CrossFit affiliates at Battle Royale 2014. Battle Royale is GETFIT CrossFit’s annual competition based on CrossFit movements. Much like the CrossFit Asia Regionals, their aim is to provide a platform for local crossfitters, athletes and fitness enthusiasts to challenge and test themselves through competition. The competition will start at 8:00am until 5:00pm on both days.

GETFIT CrossFit are also extremely proud to introduce the new logo for Battle Royale. The logo consists of two ancient weapons; a “Kelasak” and two “Kampilan”. “These weapons are proudly held by officers of the Royal Regalia of our beloved Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. Both are symbols of perfection of our country’s customs and tradition which date back to before the 7th century. We have always been inspired by our culture to strive to beat the odds whatever they may be, and this logo reminds us that every athlete had to start from somewhere,” said Coach Sekhon, Head Coach, GETFIT CrossFit.
GETFIT CrossFit has been working around the clock preparing for this weekend’s event. “I am most looking forward to seeing the athletes in action!” said Coach Sekhon. When asked why the general public should come and spectate, he replied: “There is a lot of hidden talent in Brunei. You would be surprised to know what they are capable of! People are always going outside of the country to compete in fitness events. This is one where regional athletes are coming over to Brunei (some for the first time) to compete with us.”

“We are proud to host Battle Royale for all, and we will do our best to put on an amazing show for the general public. Also, the Brunei Calisthenics Group will be showcasing their talents in a demo on Sunday October 19, 2014 at 12:30pm. They are incredible in what they can do on a pull up bar!”

A number of local CrossFit athletes were interviewed about Battle Royale and what they were looking forward to: “The challenge and fun,” Nizam Bakar, graduate development trainee; “Meeting my CrossFit friends and challenging each other,” Noi Harun, quantity surveyor; “The competition – against others and myself,” Delwin Keasberry, commercial manager; “Meeting new and old friends from Brunei and beyond, and to challenging my fitness,” Boon Chu Woo, medical scientist; “To another excellent event; where people can showcase their abilities and fitness. Also, to see how far they have come from the event in 2013. It should be great for both competitors and spectators alike,” Mas Idris, IT executive director; “Competition is tough this year. I am looking forward to give my best, and most importantly to enjoy every moment of it,” Amalina Abdullah, crossfitter.

RIPAS caught on fire

What are the chances of having two separate fire incidents happening in a space of two days? This happened two days ago at RIPAS hospital when a fire broke out at the Cardiology Centre and the fire caused damages to 12 treatment rooms. Fortunately there were no report of injuries or casualties so that’s a huge relief for everyone. A big kudos to the Fire and Rescue Department for bringing the fire under control within half an hour before it could get out of hand.

According to the press statement from The Brunei Times, The Ministry of Health said the fire did not affect the Specialist Block and all in-patient or ward services at the hospital, which opened in 1984.

I was aware of the incident as it was spreading on social media especially on Whatsapp. Yes, news in Brunei is pretty viral right now and the headline pictures that were used on The Brunei Times and Borneo Bulletin were identical and taken from Whatsapp.

Present during the examination of the site was Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Suyoi Hj Osman, in his capacity as the Acting Minister of Health.

We are still unsure what sparked the fire at the Cardiology Centre but let’s hope the investigation will sort out that matter. What is important is that no one was hurt during the incident.
