Seeking for information 
 


Text from The Brunei Times: Police have launched an investigation into the death of a 39-year-old woman whose body was found at Bukit Shahbandar yesterday.

In a press statement, the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) said the cause of death is still under investigation while waiting for the post-mortem results. The body was found by personnel from the Gurkha Reserve Unit after a missing person report about the woman was lodged to the police on Sunday. Police did not name the woman, but provided a picture of her to the media.

The woman was last seen wearing a blue Adidas shirt, blue shorts and a pair of light-brown coloured shoes as well as a black and yellow waist pouch. The news of woman’s death was circulated on social media, prompting the police to issue a warning to members of the public not to spread any information that is baseless and can affect the investigation.

The RBPF further stated that Bukit Shahbandar and its surrounding area is closed until investigations have been completed.

Police are seeking public assistance to share information on the incident, which was believed to have happened on Sunday around 3pm to 7pm. Anyone with information can contact the police hotline 993 or 2232001 and 2232007.

Dining in the Dark 
 


Check out the menu for this weekend. Let’s dine for a good cause. Click image to enlarge.
HISTORY of CONCEPT

The very first restaurant in dark originated in Zurich, Switzerland in 1999. The idea of dining in the dark originated in 1998 during the “Dialogue in the Dark” exhibition at the Zurich Museum of Design. The focus was to give the sighted people an insight into the experience of being blind. This idea emerged because of the great enthusiasm shown by visitors and the opportunity to create jobs for visually impaired people. In 1998 the Blind-Liecht foundation was founded by visually impaired people, and in 1999 a restaurant, bar and platform for education and culture in the dark was created in a former Methodist chapel in Zurich Seefeld.

WHY DINING IN THE DARK?

With the complete loss of vision — and the resulting heightening of the other four senses — an evening of Dining in the Dark is an extraordinary culinary adventure. The meal feels like more of a discovery for guests and servers.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

You will be warmly welcomed by your hostess who will guide you through the evening while you enjoy the most extraordinary course meal.  When you are comfortable you will adjust your mask and be guided to your table where the fun really begins. Your evening will be a combination of fine food, inspiring music and a story that ties everything together.   You’ll laugh and enjoy, you’ll guess what you are eating and you will focus on the food and each other. A dinner in total darkness, a completely new sensory experience is a worth to try. The optic nerve is overridden while your other senses take over. Every sound, every taste, and every breath is an adventure!

HOW DO WE SERVE?

Guided by “Darkness Experts”, all you have to do is relax and trust. Then, enjoy the great tasting food specially designed by Sorriso Restaurant Owner / Head Chef and team. Our service staff may consist of visually impaired and blind persons who lead their daily life without or with minimal light and special kid with Down syndrome.

CONTACT

For tickets inquiries, you can call 245 7729 or 242 3232. The event is brought to you by IA Salon, Fun Bee Park and Sorriso Restaurant & Pizzeria. This is a fund raising event for Brunei Darussalam National Association of the Blind.

 


Fun Bee Park’s Artistic Directress Cecilia Lee (Standing, L) explains the concept of ‘Dining in the Dark’ to the media invited to the menu preview while Chef Salvo of Sorriso (Standing, R), holds a list of dishes to be served during the September 13 and 14 event.

Ramadhan Special for SKECHERS until 30th July

Have you seen the glow in the dark running shoes by SKECHERS for their performance shoes? SKECHERS Brunei has the latest Nite Owl Performance Shoes for Men and Women with photo luminescent technology. Go check them out especially for runners who enjoy running at night. You won’t need those blinking mini lights attached to your running shoes anymore. Won’t that be totally cool to see a glowing shoes especially when you jog around the stadium area?

Primarily known for their fashion and lifestyle shoes, SKECHERS is now slowly making their mark in performance footwear with the renowned Runner’s World Magazine recently awarding the SKECHERS GOrun Ride 3 as the “Best Buy”. Also, their top spokesman, Meb Keflezighi, became the first American male to win the Boston Marathon in 2014.  We are starting to see other top marathoners slowly joining the SKECHERS Performance Team.

Brunei market has been seeing a steady increase in sales and this shows the branding of SKECHERS is getting its reach among the public. Those who haven’t tried SKECHERS, you won’t really know the experience but once you tried it on, you will think twice about owning another sneaker brand because SKECHERS are just plain comfy and it does the job too when you are running.

BrubayStore Savanna 
 


Check out the store
 

Are you guys into car accessories? I recommend you to check out Brubaystore Savanna which has now been relocated to Berakas area at Spg 145, Jalan Pasir Berakas. Previously it was located in Serusop.

If you are looking for rims of different sorts, Brubaystore also brings them in different sizes and colours. I also learned some new which is the Samco Sport hoses which are silicon base and this item is pretty popular and this is even used in F1 and NASCAR racing. So these hoses are vital for your radiators and Samco Sport brands are pretty durable and lasting and you are paying quality as well.

At the store, you can find gauge meters for your car. You don’t have to be a racer to have too but just looks ultra cool to install one. Brubaystore brought in a few different brands for your liking.

The store is also popular for their wheel nuts and it comes in different colours and sizes if you want to beautify your rims. They carry the Blox brand too and they looked pretty cool.

Brubaystore is also known for its car wrapping and you can choose different types of design to your liking. Depending on the type of car your drive, the price for car wrap varies. So if you want to feel unique while driving, have your car wrapped by Brubaystore 🙂

It was cool to know how the story of Brubaysotre Savanna came about. It started from a hobby by the owner Pg Musmahbobyhardi (Bobby) who has a passion on car accessories. Once in a while he will order accessories and parts for him and his friends and suddenly the demand just kept coming when he started the business online. Hence he though it will useful to open up a small shop to make it convenient for his friends and customers to view the product before purchasing.

Previously the shop was located at Serusop before it was relocated at Berakas. The Brubaystore now has bigger space and this is also ideal for the business owner as they can store more accessories and products for display as they feel that they are ready for expansion.

I admire Bobby’s passion and he is one of the few bumiputras that is in this particular line and he surely can pull it off. This shows if you have the passion and the trust of people, that’s already a good business formula.

You can also follow Brubaystore on Facebook by going to Facebook.com/BruBayStore for updates on products and promotions. You can also follow them on instagram @brubaystoresavanna

By the way, they are also hiring and they are looking for sales assistance.


Plenty of accessories to look for at Brubaystore

Almera Shopping Dash Challenge

Last Sunday, Boustead Sdn Bhd showed off the spacious trunk of its affordable Nissan Almera after three lucky winners managed to fill the car’s trunk with loads of shopping items in the Nissan Almera Shopping Dash Challenge held at the Beribi Supa Save.

The three lucky individuals that were picked last Friday for the Nissan Almera Shopping Dash Challenge were Siti Ajeerah binti Awang Rosli, Lim Han Lie and Siti Aqilah Mohamad. Each participant had to complete the shopping dash within eight minutes and also fit all the shopping items inside the trunk of a Nissan Almera.
Siti Ajeerah binti Awang Rosli who hauled in around $1,300 worth of items thanked Boustead Sdn Bhd for the promotion.

Looking exhausted after the shopping dash, she said “I just grabbed whatever I could from the shelves. I was surprised I managed to collect such an amount.”

The promotion aimed not only to reward Nissan’s customers who have test-driven or purchased a Nissan Almera but also to give them a better understanding of the Almera’s 490-litre trunk space capabilities. Another Nissan Almera Shopping Dash promotion will commence from July 16 to August 31. Members of the public will need to visit Boustead’s showroom in Beribi or Kuala Belait to purchase or go for a test-drive in order to be eligible to be picked for the shopping dash.

Dreamz Living Concept 

 


Located at Units 2, 3 and 4, Ground Floor, Simpang 41-1-12 in Jalan Kiarong (Blue Building)

A new furniture shop just opened its door and if you think that Brunei is lacking in variety, then I advise you to explore at this new furniture store, located at Kiarong Complex. A good idea for home deco and if you also hunting for quality mattresses, this is the place.

Madam Kong, General Manager of Winmotion Trading, has been in this field for more than a decade and now she’s running the show at Dreamz Living Concept. She shared about the awesomeness of the Dreamz Mattresses since they are made of 100% memory foam which doesn’t use the typical springs. Awesome, right?

The Dreamz products are made of natural latex and memory foam. Sleeping on advanced turn-free technology pillow top mattress, for example, will not affect or wake your sleeping partner while you turn in your sleep.

This is also ideal for those with back problems and also eliminates the risk of injury to the spine. The best part of this product is that it responds to your weight and shape of the body and you will get the sense of comfortness.

The store also sells bed from single to queen sizes. There’s even on single bed that allows storage underneath. Different types of sofas are also available as well as wardrobes.

For now, as part of their opening promotion, they are giving discounts up to 20% of selected products. It’s open from 10am to 9pm during Ramadhan and you can contact 242 8879 for details.

Skechers in KB 
 


Check out the promotion during Ramadhan
In less than a year, Skechers Brunei have delivered more than expected. Two weeks ago, they opened their 3rd branch in Kuala Belait after opening one at Kiulap and Seria. The third outlet has been a successful one as you will be surprised that Skechers is a strong brand nation wide. Opening one in KB shows the demand of Skechers in general that patrons are aware of its brand and lifestyle it portrays. Let’s not forget that Skechers are not only known for their imaginative designs but its functionality.

Brand Manager Terence Han also caught by surprise of the outlet’s overwhelming response in KB. For your info, the location of the KB outlet is in the middle town of KB town along Jalan Pretty. You definitely won’t miss it and furthermore, Skechers looks colourful and catchy from a distance.

The great thing about its location is that it is able to attract customers from the border (Miri).

So do expect footwear for men, women and children and who knows I might end up wearing a casual one. You will be amazed that there are estimate of 2,000 shoes and stocks just keep coming because of the good demand.

Skechers Brunei are currently having a new promotion during the month of Ramadhan, offering members a 20 per cent discount on regular items instead of the normal 15 per cent discount. Membership is free of cost and discounts apply immediately upon purchase.

You can also follow their updates on @skechersbrunei and their Facebook page.

The MLS Project 
 


Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister’s Office, Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Singamanteri Colonel (Rtd) Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Haji Mohammad Yasmin Haji Umar, Dato Matsatejo Sokiaw, CEO of PetroleumBRUNEI and Yves Grosjean, General Manager of Total E&P Borneo B.V

A launching ceremony for the Maharaja Lela South (MLS) project was held at the Muara Fabrication Yard in Kampung Serasa. Attended by the Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister’s Office, Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Singamanteri Colonel (Rtd) Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Haji Mohammad Yasmin Haji Umar, also there were Mr Nguyen Truong Giang, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Vietnam,  Dato Paduka Awang Hj Jamain Bin Haji Julaihi, Permanent Secretary (Downstream & Power), Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office,  Puan Hjh Rosmawatty binti Hj Abd Mumin, Permanent Secretary (Upstream) , Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office and Dato Matsatejo Sokiaw, CEO of PetroleumBRUNEI.

The MLS project, which is part of the exploration Block B, is located 50 kilometres northeast from Brunei coastline, and costs around US$1.4 billion ($1.74 billion).

In his speech, the Minister of Energy said “The MLS Project will amongst others, extend Block B’s production life to beyond 2025, while increasing current daily production from 30,000 barrel of oil equivalent to around 40,000 boe.”

According to Yves Grosjean, General Manager of Total E&P Borneo B.V, “Starting early 2016, the Project will produce the new gas and condensate resources discovered by exploration wells ML-5 and ML-6 drilled in 2010. These two wells were the deepest ever drilled in Brunei and the reservoirs to be produced are high pressure/high temperature. With the new wells from ML South it is anticipated that field production will be sustained at the new plateau level of 5Mm3/d beyond 2025, with the contribution of identified upsides. This new production level represents an increase of 35% compared to the production rate under the initial gas sales contract to BLNG that expired in 2013 and has now been renewed until 2033.”

The MLS Project is the largest joint venture in the block, spearheaded by Total E&P Borneo B.V. with  Petroleum Brunei and Shell Deepwater Borneo among the shareholders.

Skechers now opens

The management of Skechers Brunei with the local media
Thank you to Mr. Lim Kwee, the owner of Skechers Brunei for hosting us media for dinner the other night. He’s also the owner of GL Extra Enterprise that handles the leading outdoor camping store in Brunei Darussalam. Our dinner was held at a iLotus Restaurant and Mr. Lim’s intention was to simply appreciate the media for their contribution in spreading awareness on Skechers shoes and products.

Mr. Lim was happy to unveil the second outlet of Skechers at Plaza Seria in Seria which was opened to business since yesterday. The third branch will be somewhere in Kuala Belait.

The new store in Seria aims to target the niche market for the occupational industry shoes, owing to the large population of oil and gas workers living in Belait. This is a strategic area since many customers are from KB and Seria.

Since its opening in the final quarter of 2013, Skechers Brunei have been doing exceptional well because it’s a well known brand and also people have been commenting on its comfort.

Skechers ranges from casual to sports type so do check their GOwalk, GOrun and GObionic range. It’s good to see Skechers spreading its foothold in Brunei and the response has been favourable.

RB flies to Bali 😀 
 


The news that caught people’s attention
 


Flying four times a week. Not bad, not bad 😀

Wow, after a long, long hiatus, this is very good news for Brunei travelers. Royal Brunei Airlines, Brunei’s national air carrier, will resume its direct flights to Bali, Indonesia, by 26th July 2014. This is indeed a very positive move and the comments on social media have been favourable. Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has been going through major changes ever since its rebranding programme and I remember the Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of RB, hinted of more routes as part of their strategic expansion as well as meeting demands of customers.

So how many times they will fly? I believe it stated that it will fly four times a week. The flights will operate by an Airbus A319.

The flights from BSB to Bali, BI757 departs at 8.55 pm and will arrive at 11.20 pm on Tuesday,Wednesday,Saturday and Sunday. Flights from Bali to BSB, BI758 departs at 7.10 am and arrives 9.40 am on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. For now, you can’t book on flybruneiair.com but you can inquire on your preferred travel agents. I’m pretty sure RB will have special promotions for this new route.

Royal Brunei Airlines was established in 1974 and is wholly owned by the government of Brunei. RB started with an initial fleet of two aircraft, serving Singapore, Hong Kong, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. Royal Brunei Airlines now operates a fleet of 10 aircraft to 14 destinations in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Australia. RB is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s launch airline in Southeast Asia and with the recent deliveries of Dreamliners, Royal Brunei will have the distinction of operating the youngest long haul fleet in the world.

Royal Brunei Airlines won ‘Best Foreign Airline’ award in the category “Award For Best Airlines” at the Sabah Tourism Awards 2011. Last year, Brunei’s flag carrier won the Metro Time Shanghai Award for their Reader’s Airline of Choice and The Best Airline Provider from The European Asia.

Thank you RB for making this possible and it’s perhaps the best highlight moment after yesterday’s derailing topic that went viral (not RB related but I think you guys know what I mean). Below are just some of the images from my previous Bali trip back in 2012 and 2013. I will be heading again to Bali scheduled for November 2014. Who knows I might make another early trip before then.

 


My last trip last year August 2013 with my #superfriends buddies
 


This was at Potato Head. Highly recommended place to chill.
 


This was taken at the temple area. This was back in November 2012.
 


One of the activities I enjoyed was water rafting. Pure fun but it was quite a fair ride.
 


I managed to borrow this sign
 


I didn’t give a good impression since I thought it was easy to ride a scooter. I was struggling indeed and it’s super darn cheap to rent a bike there too. It was like $5 for 3 days but I only needed half an hour just to get a feel of it. Scary but scary fun 😀
 


My buddies whom I flew with back in 2012. We stayed at Maya Ubud and I truly love the place there. Quite remote and loads of green.
 


The villa rooms are quite common in Bali and the prices are quite reasonable as well.

The highlights of last night’s game between Hougang United FC and DPMM FC

 

 

Hougang United FC 0
 

DPMM FC 3 

Steve Kean wasn’t happy with the performance despite the three points. He felt DPMM FC didn’t play well in the first half and judging from the video I watched, DPMM FC could have been down by at least two goals if it wasn’t for the poor finishing of Hougang United FC. The home side were putting crosses and causing DPMM FC problems in the first half and Kean admitted that they were quite fortunate to go into the break with a clean sheet.

He did give a good point that championship team sometimes don’t play to their maximum but they still get the three points and last night’s game was a great example.

DPMM FC had a better second half and they could have scored a few more too. It was good to see new faces from the bench getting time on the pitch especially Najib Tarif and Helmi Zambin. Perhaps the highlight of the game was Azwan Ali’s rare header that brought all the three points courtesy of a wonderful cross by substitute Najib in the 77th minute.

The match was already delayed at Hougang United FC due to heavy rain prior to the match and it would be a nightmare for defenders especially goalkeepers due to the wet conditions. A big shout out again to DPMM FC defence and Wardun in goal for salvaging the important clean sheet.

DPMM FC’s top scorer Rodrigo Tosi was unfortunate not to score late in the first half with a cheeky lob but his effort just missed wide of the open goal. Roy O’Donovan’s effort were being saved by Nazri Sabri in goal.

The home side Hougang United FC have themselves to blame for not taking their chances. DPMM FC now have leapfrogged Tampines Rovers FC by a point though the defending champions have one game in hand.

DPMM FC were missing two key players – Captain Rosmin Kamis who is being rested for calf injury while Sairol Sahari had to rest after a hip strain and both should be back in next week’s home game. It is not a good run for Hougang United FC who just came off a loss against Geylang International FC after conceding three late goals. Hougang United FC have proved to be a threat in the league with their new signings and I won’t be surprised if Hougang United end up in the top three this season.

Great job to the lads as well as the head coach and the team management in rebuilding DPMM FC from last season. It’s always a great feeling to be on top. Keep it up!! Some of the images below are courtesy of Alson Ong.

It was heavy pouring a few hours before the match. Good thing the match wasn’t called off.
