Awesome Monday

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Monday dilemma 
 


A must watch Episode (9): Game of Thrones.. Now I can’t wait for the finale.
 

Ah, this was the first that I was in many years that I had to struggle to flip through channels on a Monday morning. And on top of that, I was struggling to stay awake due to late night football (European Cup 2016). So what was showing live on Monday this morning? The NBA finals game 7, WWE’s Money In The Bank and Episode 9 of Game of Thrones. All showing on Kristal Astro..

Don’t worry, peeps!! No spoiler alerts especially for Game of Thrones and WWE’s Pay-Per-View event. Of course, my priority is still on Game of Thrones because of the higher value in terms of being spoiled with the era of social media. I’m glad I didn’t flip channel and focused the whole hour on the 9th episode of GOT and it was worth the watch. Many high and low moments but that’s how it is to make a story more compelling.

As for the Money In The Bank, I was slightly disappointed in the bookings. The fatal four way tag team match had good moments but poor execution where it made wrestlers feeling awkward because some of them missed the timings of the staged match. The match I missed was AJ Styles and John Cena because GOT was screening at the same time. Jason Rumpun said it was a great match though it started slowly. I skipped most of the matches as I was focusing on the NBA finale in between. The main event was above average and I am happy that Seth Rollins is back!! and he didn’t show any signs of injury throughout the whole match. Amazing feat!! Btw, Rollins is my favourite wrestler in WWE for the moment.

Game 7 of the NBA finals was much more interesting where defending champion Golden State Warriors choked after leading 3-1 in the final series, only to lose the finals to Cleveland Cavaliers 4-3. This is history in the making for Cleveland and it’s the King James show in the past few games. I have to applaud their resilience and tenacity to climb back from defeat and win their NBA championship. The Warriors will have reflect on their performance in the play-offs and now their 73-9 season record accounts to nothing.

All in all, it has been a great Monday morning and I still have pending work and a speech to deliver tonight.. So did you spend your Monday morning?

 


LeBron James finally win it for Cleveland Cavaliers
 


Seth Rollins was back in the game after months of being sideline through injury. I’m happy that he is fully fit now and he will make more impact on the WWE weak universe
 


Our supper last night at It’s A Grind (Citis Square) with Filterworks buddies. Apparently they have new snacks to cater for those who want to “lepak” late at night at the Citis Square outlet. It closes at 2:30am during Ramadhan. Do watch out for our promo video soon on IG and Facebook.
 


The new line of smartphones and tablet from Kata Digital. Interesting gadgets and they are quite affordable and cheaper than others in the market. A US product that are now available at AV Visual outlets (Mall, Times Square and Tutong). I shall blog more about this tomorrow.
 

  
 

SsangYong XLV 
 


Apart from the launch, SangYong Brunei is hosting a “My XLV Design” contest in which the winner could stand a chance of winning a Samsung S7 Edge
 


The Deluxe and the Standard specs of the newly launched SsangYong XLV, now available at SsangYong showroom at T.C.Y. Motors showroom at Kiarong
 

T.C.Y. Motors Sdn Bhd, sole distributor of SsangYong Motor in Brunei Darussalam, is proud to officially launch the SsangYong XLV. Widely considered to be an upgrade to the well received SsangYong Tivoli, the new SsangYong XLV boasts a uniquely dynamic style and several improvements to make it a strong contender for the most value-for-money compact SUV.

In addition to the power and safety features unique to SsangYong vehicles, the XLV offers superb riding comfort, quietness, a roomy interior, plentiful storage spaces as well as multiple seating variations for even greater storage space to match your required needs.

Continuing SsangYong’s play on words for its model monikers, the XLV takes its name from an acronym which stands for: eXciting Lifestyle Vehicle. As such, the XLV embodies more than just the essential qualities of an SUV. The storage space offered is among the best in its class and strives to transform the lifestyles of its users by giving them greater freedom of space.

Though it maintains the modern and elegant design identity of the Tivoli, the new SsangYong XLV also introduces design cues of its own for a more dynamic compact SUV appearance. This includes designs such as the dynamic barbell-type bumper which gives the XLV a uniquely robust look that continues the rhythmically flowing character line on either exterior body side of the XLV.

Playing host to 720 liters of cargo space, the XLV comes with a number of small storage spaces for easier compartmentalization. Customers can enjoy the roomier interior together with a choice of cloth seats, leather seats, and synthetic leather seats; the latter of which comes in a sporty red and black color pattern.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second-row seats provide more headroom than any other competing compact SUV models by being able to recline up to 32.5 degrees. This in effect guarantees maximum comfort for all back seat passengers even during the longest of road trips. A latch type folding system allows the back seats to fold all the way down for a total of 1,440 liters of cargo space.

Under the hood, the XLV is equipped with the well received Aisin six-speed automatic transmission which is recognized for its performance and efficiency. Being composed of class-leading 71.1 percent high-strength steel, the chassis of the XLV effectively provides greater safety for the driver and passengers by minimizing vehicle deformation in the event of a crash. For reassurance, ten major parts of the vehicle have been made with hot press formed advanced high-strength steel with a tensile strength of 1500 Mpa.

Additionally, the XLV comes with an option of seven airbags, including the knee airbag on the driver’s side. This in combination with an ESP (electronic stability program) system, ABS and LED daytime running lights ensure the highest level of safety.

The vehicle’s infotainment system is particularly noteworthy as it features a HDMI port and a six-speaker sound system which allows for a variety of multimedia to be played back on the large seven-inch reverse camera connected screen with precise clarity.

The SsangYong XLV is made to combat the heat thanks to its best in class air-conditioning system and ventilated driver seat. Its dual-zone, fully automatic air-conditioning system allows the driver to maintain an optimum in-vehicle temperature while the memory function allows up to three combinations of temperature and air-flow volume and direction to be stored, guaranteeing a pleasant driving experience.

Lastly, the XLV comes with the option of a two-tone roof for all seven colors. This permits customers to choose a color for the roof and rear roof spoiler that is different from the body of the vehicle, adding to a dynamic and urban style.

In conjunction with the upcoming SsangYong XLV Launching, SangYong Brunei is hosting a “My XLV Design” contest in which the winner could stand a chance of winning a Samsung S7 Edge. Like us on SsangYong Brunei Facebook fan page and follow us on @ssangyongbru IG, for more updates!

SsangYong XLV 
 


SsangYong XLV during the press launch at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
 

T.C.Y. Motors gave a sneak peek at the new SsangYong XLV in a press preview at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on May 24th.

Following in the footsteps of the successful Tivoli Launch, the new XLV gives you the feel of a luxury car with its stylish interior, and maximizes carrying capacity, thanks to its lengthened body.

The XLV made its debut as the XLV Air Concept during the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt in 2015.  The extremely favorable feedback received during this debut gave SsangYong Motor the confidence to put the car into production.

The XLV shares the same platform and 2600mm wheelbase as the Tivoli, but with more space to boot with a load capacity of 720 cubic litres of space. The XLV features a 1.6 litre petrol and 6-speed automatic, two-wheel drive.

The unique styling cues that distinguished the Tivoli are retained in the XLV, including its harmoniously fused SUV body design, sporty look and floating roofline.

Designed to offer a multi-role, multi-function solution to a wide range of customers, the XLV provides just the versatility needed to meet a wide range of individual lifestyles, from outdoor excursions, ferrying sports equipment, or just ensuring all the luggage makes it to the airport on the family holiday.

Gaining knowledge 
 

BIBD recently participated in the 9th Muzakarah Cendekiawan Syariah Nusantara on the 10th and 11th of June at the Hotel Millennium, Jakarta. The dialogue’s organiser, The International Sharia Research Academy for Islamic Finance has chosen to partner with Universiti Islam Negeri Syarif Hidayatullah to bring the theme, “Innovative Contemporary Islamic Financial Products for the Development of the Social-Economy of Muslims”. The discussions were focused on current financial issues pertaining to “Refinancing and Restructuring” and “Applications of Hajah (needs) in Innovative Products.”

BIBD Shariah Advisory Body member and Director of the Mazhab Shafi’i Research Centre at the Universiti Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA), Dr Abdul Nasir bin Haji Abdul Rani was involved in the first discussion regarding the concept of Hajah and its applications in Islamic finance.

On the second day, BIBD Product Manager Hjh Adinah binti Hj Jamudin was involved in the discussions on the applications of Shariah-compliant concepts in developing and offering products that will assist in generating socio-economic benefits to the Muslim community, especially the non-bankable segment. These products can be materialised by strengthening corporation between Islamic financial institutions and social finance institutions to utilise Wakaf, Zakat, Islamic wealth management, micro-finance and micro-Takaful. They also discussed equity-based financing products such as Musyarakah that can be applied in Islamic wealth management where both parties can benefit from a financial partnership.

The main objectives of the dialogue were to create general understanding between Shariah scholars in the region through academic discussions on multiple issues related to Islamic finance. The dialogue also serves as a regional platform for scholars, academics and practitioners of Islamic finance to share ideas, knowledge and experiences, and to share latest developments in the Islamic finance industry.

Also part of the BIBD representatives were BIBD Shariah Advisory Body Chairman and Deputy State Mufti, Yang Dimuliakan Pehin Orang Kaya Paduka Setia Raja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Awang Haji Suhaili bin Haji Mohiddin, along with its member, Yang Mulia Dr Awang Haji Mazanan bin Haji Yusof, Head of Research, State Mufti Department.

Motoring BN 
 


Izam Said, editor of CONFEX, during the press conference last Friday
 

Having another magazine in Brunei means there are things to showcase to the eyes of the public. I know Izam Said for quite some time and he is passionate about one thing – cars, cars and cars. He used to be feature writer on the automative section (On The Road) of The Brunei Times and I’ve always love his insights and opinions on the cars he test drove. Now it’s good to know he is venturing into something that he is passionate about and everyone has a story to share just like Izam.

Last week, I had the privilege to be invited to a press conference held at CONFEX. For your info, CONFEX is a local events management company which has run a series of team building workshops and only recently I found out that Izam Said is the editor of CONFEX. Under CONFEX, the team will be launching a new magazine on automotive which will be another platform for car enthusiasts to learn more about the cars especially in the Brunei market.

This will be the first of its kind that features an 80-paged automative magazine for the benefit of the readers. This is another avenue for car dealers or distributors to showcase their cars and even anything related to cars on Motoring BN.

Izam Said is confident that the magazine will be a success and despite the shift of information world through technology, he believes that having something “tangible” like a magazine is still trend. I do agree with him on that since I also collect and buy computer, film and wrestling magazines due to the tangibility factor.

For your info, every quarter, Motoring BN will print 15,000 copies and it will be sold on news stand at a price of BND 6.80. The pre-order subscriptions have been overwhelming for the first issue and he hopes there will be enough for the 1st edition to be sold in local book stores.

So what can you expect from Motoring BN magazine? They have a mixture of local and foreign writers who will contribute to the magazine. One segment that will catch the interest of the ladies will be “Heels on Wheels” by Tracy Ramantan.

The magazine is said to be launched sometime in July. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the magazine and I believe Izam Said is the right man to lead the show. I’m proud that he has taken a new adventure on his passion to another new level. Keep it up, buddy!!

For those who are interested to advertise for the next issue, you can contact 8282 212. For those who want to subscribe, you can click here for the pre-orders. You can also follow them on IG @motoringbn

Back in Bangkok City

Listen to my latest podcast on Jurassic World with special guest Jessie Tey

  
 

Bangkok: Day 1 
 

I’m back here again in Bangkok. So far this is my second visit this year, the previous was back in April 2015 where I spent more time in Hua Hin (love that place). Now my trip will be focusing more on Bangkok where I will exploring new places for Bruneians to shop, shop and shop 😀 I came with two other media from Brunei – Pui from United Daily and Syazwani from Borneo Bulletin. We were joined with the media from Malaysia – Lauren Christie, Jasnitha Nair and Ng Wing Yik Yin. A big thanks to Richard Lim from Tourism Authority of Thailand (Malaysia) for this opportunity to be back in Thailand.

Currently we are being hosted by Dusit Thani Bangkok and it’s such an amazing hotel. I have the privileged to be placed at their club room level. The room is pretty huge and it’s like a mini-suite. Maybe too big for me but then again, I love the rooms here. I shall sharing my experience with Dusit Thani further later in my postings. I also met Sommai Yocapajorn (Director of Marketing Communications) and Stanley Lo (Resident Manager) and thank you for showing us around.

Our visit itinerary was to go on the Wonderful Pearl Cruise @ Rivercity. Now this is one thing that we Bruneians should be doing – taking dine-in cruises during the evening to enjoy the entertainment, the music and the atmosphere. This is such a brilliant idea to have such cruise and it’s quite popular in Bangkok. Apparently there are many cruises that offer this package and the ones we experienced was the latest one in Bangkok, the Wonder Pearl Cruise. For only 2,500 baht, you can enjoy the 2 hour experience. I don’t mind doing this again on my next trip with my friends if I happen to be in Bangkok.

That’s it for my post today and have a great week ahead. This is RA, reporting from Dusit Thani Bangkok 😀

 


Thank you Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) for taking us to Bangkok
 


Loving the speed for AIS network. I would recommend you this line.

Nur Savings promotion 
 


The Minister of Industry and Primary Resources at the Takaful booth during the opening of the ASEAN Consumer Fair
 

The popular short term investment is back!! Takaful Brunei Keluarga (TBK) previously held this special promotion two years ago back in 2013 and it was a big hit. This time round, the stakes are way better. For those who are not aware of Nur Savings from TBK, it’s basically a short term investment (maximum two years) where you will be insured and also gain interest from the savings at a profit of 2% per annum for two years.

The single minimum payment os BND 2,000 and there is no cap for the payment. Previously it was capped at BND 50,000 but now interested parties can inject any amount they feel comfortable with. The 2% interest is a pretty high return as compared to the banks in Brunei. Hence not only you save and get protected, you also earn the extra 2% from your savings. So imagine yourself investing BND 500,000 or even BND 1 million. That would be a great returns in a space of two years only. Awesome returns!!!

This promotion is open to all residents of Brunei Darussalam which means as long as you have an IC (green, purple or yellow), you will be eligible. For those interested parties, you can call TBK’s Certified Financial Planners at 223 1100 during office hours.

For now, you can also sign register at their booth at the ASEAN Consumer Fair at ICC and today’s the final day. There will have certified Islamic financial planners to assist you. Take advantage of the Nur Savings from TBK.

 


Check out the awesome deals from Takaful at ASEAN Consumer Fair. Today is the final day.
 

 

Tivoli officially launched
 

 

Check out the Tivoli

 

TCY Motors the sole distributor of SsangYong Motor in Brunei officially launched the “Tivoli”, which is expected to be a game changer in the compact SUV market with innovative style and remarkable product competitiveness. The launching ceremony was held at the Kiarong showroom.

Since an increasing number of global consumers are favoring compact SUVs with high performance, great fuel economy, practicality and price competitiveness, SsangYong plans to tap into its new model to meet such demands while solidifying its position as a leading SUV maker.

Tivoli, applied with sensuous design, outstanding spatial utility of SUVs, first-of-its-kind safety and convenience features offers an attractive experience as “My 1st SUV” to customers who want both style and practicality in their cars.

When it comes to styling, SsangYong’s new model blends the beauty of youth, energy and robustness in its overall design, aspiring to be “My 1st SUV” of young people in the world. Furthermore, as a starter of “Nature-born 3Motion”, SsangYong’s design philosophy, it expresses modern and urban images through “Urban Dynamic Style” based on a motive of “Rhythmical Motion”.

Rhythmical elements such as harmony of tension and composure, the whole and details are fully expressed on the front of Tivoli. And the reversed-trapezoid bumper, which underscores the air intake contrasts with crisp hood lines, maximizing tension.

Stable and balanced rear completes the design language of SsangYong Tivoli. While the rear, which resembles muscular shoulders symbolize confident youth itself, it also emphasizes rhythmical features through style lines. In the mean time, the cheerful clear-type rear combination lamps unleash liveliness.

The interior design of the new model pursues “Compact Deluxe Style” which creates smart and practical space where passengers can feel modern, yet roomy luxury lounges. Most notably, a future-oriented image is emphasized with a theme of “Moving IT Space” through bar-type switches and expanded use of touch screen controllers which are the result of analysis of user behaviors.

The interior view
 

Tivoli’s optimized spatial design provides excellent passenger convenience and storage. Based on overall width of 1,795mm (widest in the class), its roomy two-row cabin maximizes riding comfort, and 423ℓ (largest in the class) of storage makes it the only car among its segment that can carry up to three golf bags.

Moreover, the full-flat folding second-row seats, not seen in compact sedans, provide enough storage for multiple-use, maximizing the original features of SUVs.

A D-cut steering wheel, mostly used in sports cars, together with a cylinder-type six-color cluster.

A D-cut steering wheel, mostly used in sports cars, together with a cylinder-type six-color cluster (Optional) not only satisfies drivers’ emotional needs but also boost their pride. Clusters with 3.5 inch display that shows various information offers great intuition.

2015 Tivoli’s interior comes in three colors: black, beige, and red. Red interior, in particular, is expected to be much favored by customers who want unique and sporty look, as it blends beautifully with the D-cut steering wheel, a standard feature.

Award-winning semi-bucket seats, which are ergonomically formed with fine materials provide superb comfort and postural stability during driving and cornering, and the quilting stitch design applied to the seats makes them exclusive and luxurious.

Tivoli’s P/T (powertrain), which SsangYong unveils for the first time is remarkably efficient and reliable. And the e-XGi 160, a newly born engine after three years of development period, delivers 126ps maximum power and a maximum torque of 16.0kg•m. Combined fuel economy is 12.0km/ℓ for A/T and 12.3 km/ℓ for M/T (based on the Korean standard).

AISIN’s 2nd-generation A/T, which is widely used by global auto makers is placed on Tivoli. Recognized for its quality and performance of power transmission, the transmission delivers dynamic driving performance with shifting response that is as fast as DCT.

Every trim of the new SUV includes Smart Steer, which controls steering effort in three modes (normal, comfort, sport.) depending on driver’s taste. Also, NVH performance is much improved by applying dual-structure dash panels to the engine room, resulting in minimized engine noise, and effectively blocking noise from intruding inside cabin.

For a highly rigid body, SsangYong Tivoli uses high-strength steel (HSS) for 71.4% of its body, and Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) for 40%, which makes it unique in the segment.

To improve the safety of passengers, 10 major areas use ultrahigh-strength materials, manufactured by hot press forming process. The materials are two times stronger (1500Mpa) than the usual UHSS (600Mpa), thus minimize deformation of car body in a crash.

In the mean time, big-sized disc brakes are applied to the front and rear wheels for quicker brake performance, and multiple safety features are used such as multi-functional ESP (Electronic Stability Program), TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System), and LED daytime running lamps. Tivoli’s excellent safety is proven by its near-perfect ratings in AE-MDB (Advanced European Mobile Deformable Barrier).

The core of Tivoli’s infotainment system lies in maximized usage of smart devices. The HDMI connection allows passengers to enjoy clear images and sounds from smart devices on the seven-inch display which is connected to the rear camera. Furthermore, the six-speaker sound system provides excellent sound.

The new compact SUV is the only car in the segment which uses fully-automatic dual air-conditioning system. The AC system not only maintains the optimal temperature of the cabin, but also offers memory function which remembers preferred air volume, air direction, and temperature in three modes, guaranteeing pleasant driving all year round.

Moreover, It is more convenient and safer when parking, thanks to the obstacle detection system with camera and four sensors on the rear. Include at the back is a luggage screen, automatic washer switch, and automatic hazard lights make the car unique in the class, offering great convenience.

SsangYong provides dual-tone body and roof option in Tivoli for the first time to maximize expression of driver’s personal taste. By applying colors that are different from body to the roof, wing mirrors, and rear spoiler, it reveals urban and dynamic look.

So, ladies and gentlemen, after all the comprehensive write-up, you can check out the new Tivoli at their Kiarong Showroom and it’s gonna be a big hit indeed because of its affordability and what the Tivoli can offer. You can check out at their website or their Facebook Page for more details.

When I saw the images sent by T.C.Y. Motors during the sneak preview of the Tivoli, I was like pretty impressed by the overall design. The first thing that came to my mind is that it doesn’t feel or look like a European car. This is the latest edition to the SsangYong family line, the Tivoli. Yes, even the name sounds European in a way. The official launch of this particular model will be in June 2015 but there have been many pre-bookings from the public already even before its release. The media had the privilege to have a close look at the Tivoli – the low spec and the high spec at the SsangYong Kiarong Showroom.

We had a quick test drive on the red colour Tivoli but we haven’t fully tested it. So far it was a good ride and I was even considering this for my next car because I’m more of an SUV person and though it’s smaller than an SUV, it has its sporty feel. There are so many things to love about the Tivoli and I assure you that the Tivoli will be a big hit in Brunei.

One of its strength is the D-cut Steering Wheel. It has a steering wheel with “sporty d-cut” design, highlighting a sporty look with its horizontal bottom line and this will enhance the driving experience with optimal grip. If you go for the hi spec, then you will get a premium leather finish on the steering wheel too.

The seats have been awarded for being “Ergonomic” in Korea. Consisting of dual density pads and Pullmaflex spring system, bonded together to create an award-winning seat. It has earned the Tivoli a reputation for optimal comfort and convenience.

There’s also a Multi Audio System with a 7” inch touchscreen display (hi-spec). You can sync your smartphones via Bluetooth or HDMI.

When it comes to safety, Tivoli ensures passengers’ safety by applying the latest technology and high strength material and it also provides outstanding inner equipment space for outdoor activities. The material of the Tivoli has AHSS (Advanced high strength steel). For your info, AHSS is used for about 40% on the body and “hot press forming” process is used on 10 major areas.

T.C.Y. Motors SsangYong is even giving one special prize – Samsung S6 Edge. All you have to do is register your interest for the Tivoli through their website tivoli.ssangyong-brunei.com or their Facebook Page.

The price tag for the Tivoli is reasonably competitive  and this is the reason why I’m confident this model, Tivoli, will be a big hit in Brunei. Thank you, Annison and Alvin for hosting us yesterday.
