Brunei Travel Fair 2016

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Brunei Travel Fair 
 

 

Sneaky sneaky. It’s a good way though to entice people to come to the Brunei Travel Fair organized by Sabre Brunei. Many airlines especially Royal Brunei Airlines are tight lipped about their fares to the media for the upcoming travel fair. Instead they teased on really good deals especially if you are traveling on New Years.. mmmmm..

The press conference was held yesterday at Seasons Restaurant hosted by Sabre Brunei (previous known as Abacus) and it was good to see familiar faces of Irene Soon, General Manager of Sabre Brunei and Halim Abdul Rahman, Senior Manager, Sales & Marketing of Sabre Brunei.

The event itself will happen this Friday 2nd September until 4th September at Green Quartz Multipurpose Hall 7th floor of Centrepoint. Well, it’s famously known for its badminton activities. Looks like there are gonna be many unhappy badminton regulars starting Thursday till Sunday.

According to Halim, he hopes to see an increase in visitors for this travel fair, at least in the region of 15,000. That’s a pretty optimistic figure and with great deals and promotions, I won’t see a problem in the rise of visitors as compared to last year.

Now who will benefit from this travel fair? The locals, of course, the expatriates, the various airlines involved, the travel trade partners (many of them), business partners and of course the national tourist offices. With all the partners involved, it makes it easier for the event to be dynamic and very relevant to the consumer end.

Pan Bright Travel Service. One of the travel agents that goes with a big bang with awesome lucky draws. This time the grand prize could be a Hyundai car or a Hermes Birkin. I’m not into bags as you can tell but but wow, these bags are no joke. When I googled, I’m shocked to know the Hermes Birkin can go up to USD 20,000 #shocked.

So for every $200 spent in Pan Bright Travel Service, you are entitled to get 1 lucky draw coupon. The promotion kicks off during the travel fair. The lucky draw campaign will be until 31st March 2017 and there will be a monthly draw of air ticket as well.

Century Travel. I bought a few air fares from them before and they have pretty good service. So far, I would say that they are the fastest in getting the news out on the air fares. I know Royal Brunei Airlines have been tight lipped but somehow word has gone out from certain travel agents on the air fares. Pretty affordable too. Just refer to the poster below.

Freme Travel. As usual, their booths are among the biggest of the lot. Not just focusing on air fights but also domestic tourism. If you want to fly on a holiday package, then Freme Travel have plentiful of choices. I was just browsing their Facebook Page and it’s amazing what cities they can come up with for their customers.

There are packages such as Morocco, Bhutan and Harbin to name a few. So something interesting for travelers to look forward to.

 


Great promotion from BIBD as well during the Brunei Travel Fair

RA Travels
 

Yes, for those who follow me on instagram would be aware that I’m currently flying abroad but of course, I’m still connected to the world wide web and yes, I will be updating my site regularly when I have the time. Funnily enough I’m more active in posting my work online rather than when I’m back at home. Weird but true.

To recap my travel log, I was in Singapore for a night (for some coverage and catching up with friends) and it was kinda of a miscommunication as I thought my mom and family would still be in Singapore then. Apparently they came back two days before I flew to Singapore *lol* So below are the pictures taken during my one day trip to Singapore before I flew off to Ipoh to meet up with my other buddies around the world.

 


Team Brunei Wushu preparing to fly to Singapore last Monday. Their event starts today and there will be 118 athletes competing in the Wushu event. Can Brunei bagged gold medals this time round?
 


AITI hosts 12 companies to Singapore for the CommunicAsia 2015. This was also taken last Monday as they depart together with some of the SEA Games delegates. It was a full flight indeed.
 


Prayers and blessings for the delegates and players of Brunei Darussalam representing in the SEA Games at the Brunei International Airport
 


Thank you Winnie for sending me off. See you pretty soon.
 


Loving the brown colour tone Adidas Supercolor edition. This will be my footwear for the next 3 weeks on my travels.
 


Thank you Royal Brunei for your hospitality. Love the service and the food. Happy 40th year of flight.
 


Today’s the last day to book cheaper flights. Enjoy shopping!!
 


The SEA Games athletes will get a special welcome by the LOs from Singapore. Awesome!! And they are being ushered right after they disembarked the aircraft
 


I was rushing to the OCBC Arena near the Stadium MRT to catch the match between Brunei and Myanmar in the netball competition. I managed to catch the final 5 minutes of the match where Brunei won 😀
 


Top notch security in Singapore’s SEA Games. You can see how much they spent in heightening the security. This could be a reason why Brunei pull out because of all these measures that will be taken into consideration for the safety of the public.
 


Loving the merchandise at the SEA Games. I might shop again once I return back to Singapore next week.
 


The Brunei mascot for the 28th SEA Games. What do you think?
 


I love the idea that they are promoting respective sports for the public to try. In this picture, it’s a customized long ping pong table. Interesting concept.
 


Pilot is one of the sponsors for the 28th SEA Games.
 


Great range of merchandise. I was already thinking of Armtrix being the official merchandise suppliers for Brunei SEA Games 2019 but has been shelved since Brunei just pulled out as being host nation.
 


Cheer leaders practicing by the OCBC Arena
 


I was fortunate to catch the final minutes of the netball event. The $11 ticket was worth it 😀
 


For rock climbing fans, you can try this at the Kallang Wave Mall (get off Stadium MRT)
 


I was contemplating in buying this pokka dot Adidas jacket. I didn’t in the end.
 


Caught up with Frances and Jessie over dinner and thank you, new buddy Nick for treating us dinner.
 


Awesome stay here at River Valley. I paid only $89 for this room. You should try AirBnb app or website to book. I booked this room through Darrick who owns a few rooms around the neighborhood in Singapore. For your info, Airbnb is a rival to hotels.
 


This is the studio apartment I’m staying in. You can click image to check out other rooms that Darrick from Singapore is offering.
 


There is even a washing machine and a cooking area and a fridge as well
 


You can even enjoy fast internet speed there. Faster than my home 😀
 


My usual ride in Singapore. One reason why I like to wander around in Singapore. I save a lot especially on taxis. I even catch the bus from time to time.
 


The one night in Singapore before I travel to Ipoh. This is the second time I fly through firefly. Reminds me of MasWings 😀

Dugong carcass rotting

The carcass of an unidentified sea animal believed to be that of a dugong is still at Tungku Beach, six days after it was reported to the Wildlife Division.

When The Brunei Times visited the site yesterday, there was already a foul smell emitting from the remains of the carcass. On closer inspection, it was found that most of the flesh was destroyed. More maggots and flies were seen to be devouring the carcass. Curious onlookers also stopped to look at it.

Hj Faisal Hj Nordin, an officer from the Wildlife Division told The Brunei Times that they had sent a team down to the beach to investigate the remains but could not ascertain the cause of death.

They were also unable to determine whether it was a dugong or a seal. “This is because we do not have a mammal expert. After the investigation, we just left the carcass there to naturally decompose,” Hj Faisal said. He declined to provide further details on the matter. Leaving carcasses that have been washed up ashore to decompose naturally is not uncommon.

In December 2012, a young whale measuring 40 feet long was found on a beach in Malibu — the carcass had disintegrated to such an extent that it was no longer feasible to tow it out to sea. According to an article by The Guardian, authorities had said that the condition of the whale’s carcass made it physically difficult to be moved. “It’s so embedded in sand that they won’t be able to get it out. The body will be pulled apart,” the authorities were reported as saying. The carcass of the sea animal at Tungku Beach measured at about six feet in length. The wildlife authority in Brunei urges the public to report any findings related to wildlife animals to them by calling 2774258, or emailing info-wildlife@industry.gov.bn or by contacting them through the Facebook.
