Reds feel the blues 
 


Stevie G attempted to grab the ball from the touchline but he was being shrugged off by Jose

What a great tactician Mourinho is! Liverpool was coming off a great run of victories and they never expect to be in the hunt for the title but their great run has put them back in title contention especially after their close victory over Manchester City a few weeks ago. However, Liverpool failed to beat Chelsea at Anfield where it mattered the most. Chelsea fielded a weaker team due to injuries and saving them for another important match in the second semi-final of the Champs League against Atlético Madrid in mid-week.

This was also the first time that Liverpool failed to scored in the first half in 25 games. So you can tell that Jose Mourinho know how to grind results at any expense and they played a much compact strategy especially at the back, forcing the midfielders and forwards to play deep, allowing less room for the likes of Sterling and Suarez to cause problems.

Two goals from Chelsea benefited from a clumsy errors, both coming in injury time of each halves. I truly salute Jose Mourinho in his tactics last night and if anyone can stop Liverpool form scoring, then it is Chelsea.

The result have open the Premier League wide open with Manchester City now favourites to win the title due to goal difference should both Liverpool and Man City win all their remaining games. Chelsea still have an outside chance to win the title if both Liverpool and City slip in their remaining games. Looks like the title will be down to the wire.

Will Stevie G’s error proved costly in the title race? We shall find out in two weeks’ time.


Demba Ba benefited from Stevie G’s error and scored late in the first half.

BIBD 4th Home Showcase 
 


Hjh Lily binti Hj Kula, the guest of honour, for the 4th BIBD Home Showcase. She’s the Deputy Managing Director (Regulatory) of the Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD)

Last Friday, BIBD launched their popular Home Showcase and it’s their 4th edition. So if you are looking or scouting for a home, BIBD provides good financing packages such as home financing, home improvement financing too as well as other BIBD’s products and services. The 4th BIBD Home Showcase will end of 4th of May this Sunday at The Mall, Gadong.

You can check out some of the range of home improvement packages specifically designed for the National Housing Schemes at Mengkubau, Mentiri and Katok. The houses are built and constructed by Majuma Sdn Bhd, a new player in the construction industry and also a 100% locally established private limited construction company registered with the Ministry of Development. This is a great opportunity for them to work closely with BIBD to design, procure and construct and also handover pre-approved home extension and renovation works to suit the Home Improvement Financing Package Product.

There is a wide range of advantages including pre-approved house plans by relevant authorities, affordable and ready to move-in packages and affordable monthly repayment scheme. Aside from that, the package includes Takaful (insurance) coverage for the financing.

I believe many residents are looking for home extensions and improvements. Hence, this BIBD 4th Home Showcase is a great opportunity. For flooring, you can get choices of ground floor tiles or lamented flooring or if you want to refurbish or extend your existing kitchen or perhaps your wardrobe.

Package A, which is the basic packages offered $15,000 financing, while Package B and C offered more extensive packages (up to $50,000) that include a bigger square feet space, an extra bedroom, first floor extensions and a corridor which will also be entitled to a complimentary air conditioner or water pump from BIBD.

EPL Masters making a comeback 
 


Steven Leslie Black, the CEO of EPL Masters and Eunice Cespedes Capalad, Marketing Manager of S-Team Solutions exchanging documents as Dato Paduka Awang Hj Mohd Hamid bin Hj Mohd Jaafar, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports looks on

After a year of hiatus, the EPL Masters is back. We have experienced two of these events so far in Brunei making its debut back in 2011. It will be called the EPL Masters Football Brunei 2014 which is bound to happen in September 2014. The signing ceremony for the event took place between S-Team Solutions and EPL Masters at the office of S-Team Solutions. Present as the guest of honour was Dato Paduka Awang Hj Mohd Hamid bin Hj Mohd Jaafar, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports.

The sponsors of the event have yet to be announced but more details will be given in the near future.

Representing the EPL Masters were Steven Leslie Black, the CEO of EPL Masters and also John Ian Holahan who were in the Sultanate. During his welcoming remarks, Steven Black said that he will do his best to bring more familiar faces mostly from Manchester United and Liverpool. He mentioned name such as Lee Sharp, Nicky Barmby, Luis Garcia, Louis Saha and even Paul Scholes to name a few. Black also hinted that they will deliver something different this year too.

He hopes to bring other new players from the EPL such as former players from Tottenham and other European clubs. Other related activities will be held which are inclusive of football clinics and meet the fan sessions. Black shared that it’s not that hard to entice former EPL players to the tournament. He gave an example of Steve McManaman who came to Brunei two years ago and it was the first time he felt comfortable and relaxed despite it being a competition but with less pressure and he was also able to mingle with his former rival team mates such as Andy Cole. He wasn’t able to do that back in his footballing years with Liverpool. So from here, you can see that the EPL Masters is not only about showcasing football at the highest level but also a heart warming environment for all the footballers involved.

Dato Paduka Hj Mohd Hamid was impressed that the EPL Masters is back. He hopes that this will help boost the football as well as the sports development in the country. This is an opportunity to improve sports tourism in the country. For your info, the Permanent Secretary used to be a national football player and he’s a Tottenham Hotspurs fan.

I’m excited for the upcoming EPL Masters Football Brunei 2014. Though it’s bound for September this year, time does fly quickly. Good luck to the organizer in making this a successful event.

 


Dato Paduka Awang Hj Mohd Hamid bin Hj Mohd Jaafar, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, hope this event will elevate the sports industry and also the football industry in Brunei Darussalam

Acer Liquid | S2 
 


Have your tried the Acer smartphones just yet?
You probably haven’t heard people use the word Phablet that often. Well, it’s like a phone and tablet combined. We have seen this successfully received with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3. Now Acer has released their now version of Phablet called the Acer Liquid S1 and S2. The Liquid S2 is the newer version with a size of almost a 6” smartphone. The market price is BND848 for the Acer Liquid S2. The first version is much cheaper, almost have the price of the Liquid S2.

So what does the BND 848 smartphone packed with? It’s entirely made of synthetic material. The Acer Liquid S2 has a combined headphone/microphone jack, which can be found on the top of the device. The USB 2.0 port on the side is primarily for charging the phablet but it can also be used to connect external storage devices or charging the device.

It uses Google Android 4.2.2 and of course, the features that I like are the Float UI (float caller, float apps etc). This means you can play your apps and not be interrupted by incoming calls as it will create another split screen for you (Ideal for Candy Crush, Flappybird players).

The webcam of the Acer Liquid S2 has a 1.2 MP resolution (1280×960 pixels) and offers decent results in good lighting. The main camera on the back of the device is a 13 MP sensor, which captures 16:9 (resolution of 4128×2322 pixels) and 4:3 pictures (4128×3096 pixels).

Perhaps the other strong point about the Acer Liquid S2 is the Ultra HD Video Capture which uses 4k technology. The Acer Liquid S2 has 16 GB storage. The Acer Liquid S2 has a 3,300 mAh battery which is pretty high.

There are many things to like about the Acer Liquid S2. I’m not a big fan of big size smartphones though. But for those familiar with the Samsung Note series, you might like what the Liquid S2 can do. I believe this is the only phablet that has LTE technology too.

Now it’s available at Concepts Computer and you can also visit their showroom for more details.
