The long-awaited ASEAN Consumer Fair 2015 was launched yesterday, and features more than 400 booths dedicated to selling a variety of goods, which is just in time for those who are preparing for the upcoming months of Ramadhan and Syawal.

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Berakas, the fair was launched by the Minister of Industry and Primary Resources (MIPR) Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Utama Dato Seri Setia Hj Yahya Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Hj Bakar.

The opening ceremony of the five-day fair began with a prayer followed by a speech by Executive Director of organiser D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd, Dato Paduka Hj Danial Hj Hanafiah, who pointed out the overwhelming participation from both local and overseas exhibitors at the ASEAN themed fair.

“I hope that even more local small-medium enterprises (SMEs) will take the opportunity to showcase their products to both local and international markets,” he added.

Present as well were government officials, Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) dignitaries, event partners and participants of the ASEAN Consumer Fair.

Aside from products from the nation and the region such as the many handicrafts and food which can be found at the Thai Grand Fair, visitors can look forward to products from China, Iran and other countries among others.

For those looking for activities, there is a wide range of fun contests and games to participate in with chances to win prizes. This includes activities organised by Malar Setia Sdn Bhd, Kingston Beverage & Creamery Sdn Bhd and DST.

The ASEAN Consumer Fair 2015 will run until Sunday, from 10am to 10pm except for Friday, where it closes from noon to 2pm for the Friday prayer.

STGCC 2014 
 

Late post: Below are some of the pictures taken during my recent trip to Singapore for the Singapore Toy Games Comic Convention 2014 which took place at the Sands Expo & Convention, Marina Bay Sands. It was another fun-packed event though I could see a drop in Marvel presence apart from the popular hit Guardians of the Galaxy. I almost bought a collectible which was a mini figurine of Transformers Megatron and I regretted that decision of not purchasing it.

This year, @delgoh and I were supposed to dress up for the occasion in our alter egos but that didn’t materialise in the end. Most likely, it will be an assurance that both of us will be cosplaying 😀 However, we might need to find an assistant or a chaperon to help us carry our stuff *lol*

Enjoy the first batch of pictures and I wished I stayed longer to take more pictures of cosplay people.

Two former students of Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan Science College were offered scholarships from PETRONAS Carigali Brunei following a signing ceremony last Friday. Dk Nur Farhanah Pg Hj Roslan and Nur Fatin ‘Izzati Hj Abdul Rahim will be sent off to Perak to pursue their studies at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS on September 19.

Dk Nur Farhanah said she was selected out of 30 applicants for the PETRONAS Education Sponsorship Programme.

“We were told that about 30 students had applied and 12 were shortlisted to undergo written examinations and interviews,” said the 18-year-old who will be studying Petroleum Geoscience.

The recipient said she could apply for work at other places once she finished her studies, as she is not bonded under the programme and due to the possibility of no job vacancies at the company.

Another recipient, Nur Fatin, said PETRONAS would allow her to work at other companies if there are no job openings.

“At the university, they have sponsors like Halliburton Co,” said the scholar who will be studying Petroleum Engineering.

She hoped to apply for industrial attachment at the company during the summer holidays.

PETRONAS country manager, Ahmad Faisal Bakar, said Bruneians made up 62 per cent of the total 45 staff working at the company.

“The pool of staff at PCBL has grown from a modest 27 in 2011 to 45 staff today. Out of this number, 28 staff are Bruneians,” he said.

The country manager added that the sponsorship programme received an 80 per cent increase in applications from Bruneian students.

Witnessing the signing ceremony between the recipients and PETRONAS Carigali Brunei Ltd yesterday were Permanent Secretary (Upstream) of the Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office Hjh Rosmawatty Hj Abdul Mumin and Managing Director of PetroleumBRUNEI Dato Paduka Matsatejo Sokiaw.

Late post:
This was another Startup Founder 101 activity that took place late August at The Knowledge Hub. It was such a great turn out probably because they were treated to two charming speakers – Keeran Janin of #CHRENDS and Hamdi Metussin (NJ), Creative Director of Mixmediaworx. The event was organised by Tru Synergy who are championing to charter the Founder Institute in Brunei. The Founder Institute is the world’s largest training and startup launch program which helps aspiring founders across the globe to build enduring technology companies.

This program has been successful where Tru Synergy have created numerous forums and dialogues by inviting founders and speakers to share their experiences and their journey so the audience can benefit from the discussions.

Both lads gave an insightful presentation and I was more intrigued by NJ’s delivery because we hardly take into account the design of business or logo or marketing material. We just take for granted that “designs” are secondary and they don’t matter much. To me, design in an integral part of your brand and it’s always vital to invest in design if not your branding.

I look forward to more forums and dialogues hosted by Tru Synergy.

 


It was good to see such young enthusiastic students in attendance

An increase from last year’s intake 



Head of student representatives Muhd Romulus bin Muhd Roland speaking on behalf of the scholars

Last year it was above 40. This year, Brunei Shell Joint Venture (BSJV) awarded 54 students for scholarship programs and it is also the first time that a few scholars will be sent to Germany in August to pursue Mechanical Engineering at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

The scholarship program has been one of the most sought program and they have been many applications as demands are increasing in these fields. In actual fact, around 234 people applied for this year’s program. Furthermore, there are many students who are taking such subjects and interests and it’s pretty evident on the increase numbers of intakes for this year’s edition. Forty students will be heading to the UK, two in the United States, two in Germany and ten in Brunei Darussalam.

Before being awarded, the scholars had to undergo a tough assessment set by BSJV. Did you know that BSJV have sent over 600 students and this is back dated from 1972. Amazing!! The scholars will also be given the opportunity to be placed for attachment during summer to gain more experience.

Present during the event were Azhar Hj Yahya, Commercial Director of Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) and the guest of honour Hjh Rosmawatty Hj Abd Mumin, Permanent Secretary (Upstream), Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office.


There was also tokens of appreciation to First Class Achievers and they are Lim Jong Hau, Han Wenxiu, Fiona Shim Siew Ying, Izzah Mardhiah Zulkipli and Farah Azyan binti Ali Umar Safri and they all received mini iPads :p

Congratulations to all the beneficiaries of the BSJV scholarship program and do make them proud and contribute back to the economy of Brunei 🙂

Elizabeth Sim and her co-host Kevin Lo interviewing Chris Woo at Timeout with Liz last weekend

I missed the first show of Timeout with Liz and I didn’t realise it has been a year already. Good job on Elizabeth Sim to keep the show going despite the challenges that she has to go through over the period. Venue has always been a problem and it looks she has found a proper setting for her show. Last weekend she had two special guests – Chris Woo and Bridgette Ang as well as Joanna Kwan. There was also a food demo by Hip and Healthy during the 3rd segment of the show.

Overall the energy was great and so was the turn out. Great to see Zainal Bostaman and Joanne Tan to be involved in the show as well as Liz’ co-host Kevin Lo.I would like to congratulate Elizabeth on her one year anniversary of her show and things can only get better from here. I’m looking forward to your future shows this year and let’s start the 2nd year with a bang.

Yasmine gets a DST treat 
 


Liyana Yus and Nadiah posed with a fan last week at the DST event

As part of DST’s “Ihsan Kasih” community program, over 30 orphans accompanied by their parents and guardians from the Tutong District between the ages of 8 and 17 were treated to movie outing to watch Brunei’s local film “Yasmine: The Movie” as well as have the opportunity to meet and greet the stars from the local Brunei film “Yasmine”.

The outing began with a welcoming reception at Dewan Kemasyarkatan in Tutong town by DST’s “Ihsan Kasih” volunteers where the children accompanied by their guardians were provided bus shuttle return transportation to the cinema in Empire Hotel & Country Club in Jerudong. At the cinema, the orphans were greeted by DST “Ihsan Kasih” volunteers.

DST also treated the children with a free popcorn and drink before they were ushered to their seats in the cinema joined by the stars themselves.

According to Elixsurian Hj Busu, Manager of Group Corporate Communications on the Ihsan Kasih initiative with Orphans, “DST have been proactive in arranging activities for orphans from fun futsal tournaments in Brunei-Muara district, educational trips to places like the Oil and Gas Discovery Centre (OGDC) in Seria, Belait District, and now a movie outing to the cinema. We are glad that we have the means and opportunity to give the orphans in Tutong a movie outing as currently Tutong does not have its own resident cineplex. At the same time, DST have the opportunity to share the enjoyable experience with the children and get to know them better”.

He also adds his positive views on the chosen film for the outing, “Feedback from many local viewers have recommended Yasmine as a movie that is universal for all ages as it also comes with various life lessons that can be learned. Also, as the movie is produced by our own local talents, it is also a means to inspiring the orphan children to believe that anything they dream of can be possible. We are fortunate that the director and actresses have taken their personal time to meet the children and to get to know them during this short time.”

After the movie the children were given the opportunity to an exclusive surprise meet and greet photo session with the stars from “Yasmine: The Movie”- Liyana Yus, Nadia Wahid, the movie director from Origin films, Siti Kamaluddin. The visit ended with DST providing DST “Ihsan Kasih” goodies to the children before their departure back to Tutong.

Also invited to the movie outing were DST’s corporate and premium clients as a token of appreciation for their loyalty and support to DST’s products and services throughout the years.

“Ihsan Kasih” is DST’s community program aimed to gather DSTians for voluntary work and to do beautiful things out of love, to help the less fortunate Bruneian, orphans and special needs community.

Check out SnapFeed and download the app to your phone and win gifts too

Wanna win freebies or gifts? It’s simple. Just download SnapFeed on your smartphone and visit Consumer Fair at ICC. A new mobile application SnapFeed has launched at the Consumer Fair 2014. It is an all-in-one application that delivers consumers with the latest promotions, deals, events, news and is also a centre for business information. It has a business directory feature with business profile information from over 740 businesses plus their branch information. Consumers can easily access product information, contact details, opening hours, and more, of their favourite businesses. The App currently supports Apple devices running ios 7.1 and above, and is best optimized for Android version 4.2.2 and above, and is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

One of the key functionalities of the App would be the use of QR code technology to make it easy for both consumers and businesses. For businesses they will be able to track redemption of deals or loyalty card stamps to help better understand their marketing campaigns, while consumers gain the benefit of having all their vouchers and loyalty card digitized and will only have to flash their QR code at merchant outlets to gain benefits. This implementation would begin starting 16th of July and consumers can expect to see more tailored offerings and start getting rewarded for their spend.

As part of the launch at Consumer Fair, users who have downloaded and registered an account on the app can visit the SnapFeed booth to claim a free gift. With over 10,000 gifts to giveaway featuring partners such as KFC, Burger King, Modesto Bistro & Grill, Lof Bakery, Netcom Computer House, Auntie Anne’s, Dapur Penyet, Each-A-Cup, Yeo’s, Sosro, Caprisonne etc. these gifts are expected to be distributed quickly while stocks lasts.

Trash to Treasure Campaign (T3) 
 

The Trash to Treasure Campaign today saw a big turnout at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium, Berakas, exceeding its target of 200kg of recyclables.

With some 20 registrations from today alone, the T3 campaign successfully collected 546kg of trash from members of the public. The trash collected comprised 488kg of paper, 27kg of plastic, 8kg of aluminium, 2kg of metals and 21kg of electronic wastes.

The campaign, targeted at households and businesses, also generated the interest of a number of schools to participate in the campaign. “Our aim is to encourage people to recycle at home and at work. We are taking small steps to instill this positive habit,” said Asia Inc Forum’s conference manager, Nanette Ramos.

Through the T3 Campaign, Asia Inc Forum hopes to extend the habit of recycling from schools to households and businesses. Schools that are interested to participate in the campaign are encouraged to get their students to register their households, Ramos said.

Today’s T3 campaign marked the first collection, with its second and final collection scheduled to take place on August 10 at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium, Berakas. The campaign was held in conjunction with the National Environment Conference, to promote environmentally-conscious lifestyle and build a sustainable living environment in Brunei.

The highest recyclers from each category (household and business) will receive prizes during the National Environment Conference on 13th August 2014. All the proceeds raised from the recycling campaign will be donated to participating NGOs to fund for their environmental projects.

The T3 Campaign is a joint initiative between Asia Inc Forum, the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) of the Ministry of Development, and Daikyo Environmental Recycling together with the conference partners; with TOTAL E&P Borneo B.V., Butra Heidelberg Cement, Baiduri Bank, and Brunei Press.
