Snapfeed facelift

Have you registered yourself at Snapfeed booth at Consumer Fair? Stand a chance to win these wonderful gadgets from Samsung

Recapped: Six months ago, Snapfeed launched their apps on IOS and Android. Six months later (now), they have totally revamped the mobile apps for the convenience of the users. Now you can browse with ease and the app looks more structured and easy to follow.

The new interface allows you to browse to content such as deals being offered, information such news and movie times (and even movie trailers). Other exciting stuff are such as their digital loyalty cards with the use of QR codes. For the moment, Snapfeed has dealt with their current merchants such as KFC, Freshco, Burgerking and I Love Yoo to name a few. Do download the Snapfeed app and see what’s on offer.

For those who registered at their Snapfeed booth at the Consumer Fair this week, you can stand a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Note or a Samsung Galaxy S5. This is only applicable if you signed up at their booth this week till Sunday. They will also provide a free photo session featuring the me-in-a-box booth.

Snapfeed booth is easy to find and it’s located in front of the Plenary Hall at the Orange Zone. I guess that’s the best location as it’s the central part of the Consumer Fair. Have fun browsing through the app.

The Residence 

You can view today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday) from 10am to 5pm. It’s located at Spg 1202 Jalan Tutong, Tanjung Bunut.

The Residence made some great noise in the past week or so. The newly exclusive lifestyle apartments known as “The Residence” made an impact among potential buyers during the preview weekend. I had a privilege by Valor Property Agency to tour the apartment and I was quite impressed. Back then, there was one block still available but I’m pretty sure it has been snapped up by now.

It was developed by ISBI Development and Trading Sdn Bhd which was completed back in November 2014. The apartment itself has a classy feel with a great landscape and a swimming pool.

The size of the apartment is about 1,690 square foot and it has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen which connects to a terrace outside.

The apartment is located at Jalan Tutong, near Tanjung Bunut and it’s quite an ideal location too.

Following the overwhelming success of the developer’s sales, Valor Property Agency has secured a further sales release of units from investment owners looking to capitalise on the demand.

You can view today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday) from 10am to 5pm. It’s located at Spg 1202 Jalan Tutong, Tanjung Bunut. For interested tenants, buyers or investors, you can call 222 2288, 242 2511, 875 2263 and 877 2263 for details.

Nice view, innit?

It’s quite a good deal actually for its quality and location.


Wu Chun at Paris Fashion Week 

Berluti, the bootmaker since 1895, branched out into clothes last season under the watchful eye of LVMH-owner Bernard Arnault’s powerful son, Antoine, who is CEO. There’s certainly a lot of money backing this fashion horse, but that’s not to say the project was destined to be a success.

So hats off to the designer, Alessandro Sartori, who pulled of a luxuriant coup, improving on the last collection to give this nascent house a voice in the fashion conversation. Berluti, it said, is the luxuriant dandy. Sartori’s 49-piece-strong collection displayed perfect mastery in color. According to Wu Chun, ” I am a fans of Berluti’s shoes but after attending their fashion show this time and meeting with the designer, Mr. Sartori,  I was totally impressed by the Fall/Winter collection.”

Hues such as terre verte, sienna brown, Venetian red, soft plum, ultramarine, dark blue and gray blue melted together in beautiful harmony, in loose leather trenches, double breasted jackets, tailored pants, classy mottled brogue shoes or bright Dandy-like cravates.

Wu Chun together with the British Formula One driver and 2014 Championship driver, Lewis Hamilton and British pop singer Brian Ferry are among the front row guests of the Berluti’s fall-winter 2015/2016 fashion collection presented in at Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, France.

Besides Berluti’s show, Wu Chun was also invited to attend the Lanvin Menswear Fall/Winter 2015-2016 show. Lanvin owner Shaw-Lan Wang revealed she defied doctor’s orders to attend the luxury house’s men’s show in Paris on Sunday. “I have dizzy spells,” she confided.That did not prevent the sprightly seventy something from chatting up a storm with front-row guest Wu Chun. According to Wu Chun, “Lanvin Men’s Winter ’15/’16 Collection is still one of the strongest brand in menswear. They were the first re-introduce those wide legs trousers and that popular silhouette. I still love this raw edge. It’s a great collection! Good outerwear, good pants, good shoes.” The former member of Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit said he would soon hit screens in “Dynasty Woman,” an epic Chinese romance starring Fan Bingbing as the 8th-century Tang Dynasty consort Yang Guifei.

Wu Chun Added, ” Attending the Lanvin show allowed me to meet Lanvins artistic director, one of the Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, Alber Elbaz and Lanvin men fashion designer Lucas Ossendrijver. It was also super exciting to watch the men’s model at the runway because thats also one of the reasons why i started weight lifting when i was 16years old and i am glad those models had inspired me because if not, i might not have started Fitness Zone and create a fitness revolution in Brunei.”

HBT is back!! 

Will Brunei retain the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy this August? Image courtesy of The Brunei Times.
Few months ago, there was some doubt whether the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy 2014 will actually happen this year. The supporters were anticipating for another great tournament after Brunei Darussalam won its first HBT tournament back in 2012. Earlier this year, it was slightly quiet and even the management and stakeholders were unsure of the dates for the actual tournament.

Perhaps the highlight earlier this year was when the management were conducting trials for the Brunei U-21 team back in January as they were preparing for the supposedly tournament earlier in April 2014. The plan didn’t materialised in terms of hosting the event in April and it was postponed till further notice. However, this is still great news because this will give ample time for Brunei to prepare for the HBT tournament. They were already many question marks as why the trials were only planned three months before the actual tournament then as it’s never easy to gel new players in the time span given. I’m not pretty sure how the preparations have been since beginning of the year but I’m sure that manager Hj Feisal Hj Eusoff and coach Kwon Oh-Son have sorted this out.

Last weekend was the draw for the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy 2014 and Brunei is now placed in Group B with the likes of Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam. In Group A are Timor-Leste, Laos, the Philippines, Myanmar and Thailand. The only one missing here is Indonesia as they won’t be able to compete due to the clashes with the ongoing Indonesian football league.

Well, I still find that a bit odd since Indonesia has a population of 200 million and yet they can’t field a squad of 24 to represent Indonesia U-21. I kinda find that reason to be … ah, no comment. For your info, Indonesia was runner-up in the previous tournament and it was a very heated match, not for the players on the field but for the supporters out there as there were commotions happening prior to the match and during the match. Sometimes when you are too passionate about your country and the ego get the better of you, things are easier to escalate to an uglier scene.

As for a vote of uncertainty, team manager Hj Feisal Hj Eusoff shared that Brunei is not ready for next month’s 5th Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy as he said they are far from being prepared for the August 9-23 regional Under-21 tournament. He said that the players’ are not at the level they should be and further more, they haven’t selected their first eleven, let alone choosing the final 18 squad.

I believe there is still hope for Brunei. They did it two years ago with great difficulty and yet they prevail. Brunei is the defending champion and I believe they can excel to greater heights.

The manager conveyed his thanks to DPMM FC for allowing to use some of their players – Adi Said, Najib and Hendra and also thanked National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) for their never ending support and also to the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports.

I shall update you the progress of the Brunei U-21 team. For now, good luck for the preparations.

Let’s hope that the crowd can be controlled especially when it comes to ticket distribution. Do you think there should be a small value given for the tickets? Image courtesy of @iam_nashar


Wu Chun at Fashion Week

As glamorous haute couture creations takes the runway in paris, media from around the globe gather at Paris for the pre-fall and winter collection Fashion Week in the months of July. Not only that, fashion enthusiasts from around the world fly in to Paris during this month to enjoy the great summer sales and at the same time, trying to get a glimpse of all the world renowned designers and celebrities at all the famous museum which are used as the venue for most of the fashion show for the top designers in the fashion industry.

Wu Chun who has been recognised as a fashion figure in the showbiz partly because of his well-built physical appearance has a close relationship with some of the top fashion designer brands in the world and has attended numerous fashion shows or invited as the spokesperson for the opening ceremony for the designer stores.

Christian Dior’s couture show in Paris on Monday was the fashion equivalent of a concept album.The show was held at Musée Rodin’s gardens in a circular tent decorated with thousands of white orchids and displayed the latest confections by Belgian designer Raf Simons.

Extended over six segments, models dressed in everything from full-skirted ballgowns to full-length fur coats, chiffon slips and embroidered parachute silk boilersuits walked around a circular white room wrapped in chrome and covered – floor to ceiling – in white orchids. It even had a soundtrack of alpha experimentalists Sonic Youth.

This year, Wu Chun was invited to experience the Fashion week in Paris where he had the chance to sit in the front row with some of the top celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence who fame has shot up during the last few years with her blockbuster hit, The Hunger game. Wu Chun was also joined by the Harry Potter female lead actress, Emma Watson,Charlize Theron and Sean Penn at the Christian Dior Fashion Show. Put together, it was a dizzying expression of creative director Raf Simons’ vision for this revered Parisian house: futuristic, red carpet friendly and art-house all at once.

In the show notes, Simons said the Dior collection was about bringing “the attitude of contemporary reality to something very historical” and finding something modern as the result. This concept collection – assured, new but rich with varied reference – suggests he might have done just that.

The Simons effect at Dior sent couture sales soaring by 14% to £601m in the last six months of 2013. This, in turn, has boosted the ready-to-wear side of the business. Asia and the US are emerging as the markets where Dior does particularly well. Monday’s couture outing will only boost a house on the up.
According to Wu Chun,” The things that excite me this time is i am attending the Haute Couture collection fashion shows which is very much difference from the Ready-to-wear collection. Couture collection are all the limited edition pieces and i was amazed by all the creativities and workmanship of the highest level in the world of fashion.Of course, being alongside all the hollywood A-lists was a blast experience for me as well.”


Woohoo. I see Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson

Quotes from Wu Chun – “”Its great to be back to Paris again, the city of ‘Fashion’ and feel honoured to be invited to Chanel, Christian Dior and Giorgio Armani Fashion shows during my 4 days trip. Its such a pleasure to wear the suit personally selected by My Giorgio Armani, a very down to earth icon who had his autograph on a baby Armani Suit for my 9 months old baby boy.”

“Today, fashion is really about sensuality-how a person feels on the inside. In the ’80s women used suits with exaggerated shoulders and waists to make a strong impression. Women are now more comfortable with themselves and their bodies-they no longer feel the need to hide behind their clothes. Fashion is not only about the clothes. Its about your body shape, your personality and the confident you have to express what you wear.”
