The Plus+ Anniversary Charity Run is an event being held in conjunction with World Heart Day and whose mission it is to bring awareness to cardiac diseases and cancer. These illnesses can be silent killers – sometimes showing little-to-no symptoms. Seemingly healthy people can be affected and by the time symptoms occur it may be too late to help. We need to continue to raise awareness and to search for cures.

Plus+ Brunei believes that knowledge about these types of diseases can prevent a number of cases from occurring. Our magazine articles aim to teach how to become heart healthy, increase fitness levels, and decrease risk factors. And because we believe so strongly in this message, we started the Plus+ Anniversary Charity Run in conjunction with World Heart Day to bring awareness to the community.

Today, Plus+ Brunei organised a sharing session – “Hear A Beating Heart”, the untold stories and experiences faced by cardiac patients and their family members at Royal Brunei Recreation Club. The highlight of the talk was Mumtazali Mohd Abdul Aziz who recently made headlines for being the first person in Borneo to have successfully received a Left Ventricle Assisted Device (LVAD) back in 2014. To date there are only four patients in Brunei fitted with the device, which aids the heart in distributing blood to the rest of the body.

The device requires the patient to carry an external battery pack at all times to power the pump, which introduces complications with making sure the environmental conditions suit the device such as making sure it’s protected from the rain and extreme heat. At night, the device is plugged into a machine that powers it while the patient sleeps.

The event was moderated by Chris Woo with three special guests, Mumtazali Mohd Abdul Aziz (a patient), Dr. Sofian, Cardiac Specialist and Dk Hjh Mas Joliwane Pg Hj Tejudin from the Ministry of Education.

Letop Lebaran 
 

 

Datin Hajah Asmah binti Haji Abdul Rahman with Haji Syed Mohd Yassin bin Haji Syed Anayatullah Shah, the founder of BattlePro Marketing & Management Services, the main organiser of Letop Lebaran

A large number of people flocked to International Convention Centre (ICC) to witness the launching of the ‘Letop Lebaran’ expo, organised by Battle Pro Marketing and Management Services (BattleProMMS).

The exhibition was officially launched by Datin Hajah Asmah binti Haji Abdul Rahman, wife of Minister of Education. More than 80 vendors are taking part in the expo from June 30 until Sunday, July 3, 2016.

Most of items sold at the expo are especially used for the upcoming Hari Raya celebration.

In his welcoming speech, Haji Syed Mohd Yassin bin Haji Syed Anayatullah Shah, the founder of BattleProMarketing & Management Services said, “The event is held to answer His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s call that urged local youths to be involved in business.”

Battle Pro Event has been organising activities since 2014 to help local entrepreneurs.

He said Letop Lebaran provided an opportunity to entrepreneurs from foreign countries to market their brand in Brunei. At the same time, it provides a platform for local entrepreneurs to further develop their business and enhance the nation’s economy. You can follow their live updates on @letoplebaran on Instagram.

A new term

Yes, a better path…

Did you know 21 motorists caught speeding yesterday on the new highway? Image courtesy of Ridhwan Kamarulzaman of The Brunei Times.
 

I commute to Seria/KB at least 2-3 times in a month and I’ve been eyeing on the much awaited highway, the Telisai-Lumut Highway and it was officially opened last Tuesday. The distance of the new highway is 18.6km and it took six years to complete and the idea is to shorten the distance between BSB and Kuala Belait. The usual path is the single land road from Telisai to Sg Liang and now there are two alternatives.

So how much did it cost? Supposedly $138 million but due to additional incurring costs, it ended up to $168 million as quoted by Simon Tsen Khjeng, Senior Engineer at Darussalam Enterprise (DARe). The six year project had geo-technical issues such as landslips due to soil composition.

There are definitely pros and cons with the newer highway. The obvious disadvantage is that the highway is five kilometres longer than the old route. But of course, the single land route will have more traffic congestion and the road is bumpy at certain points too.

Last night, it was my first time experiencing the highway and I actually thought it was a brilliant move. I saw two road kills (dogs) on my way back. I might have to say that those living in Lumut might find it tedious as they have make a longer U-turn than usual since my friend shared her view on the highway.

For now, let’s be appreciative of the Government’s effort to improve the safety and also road congestion especially for commuters. It’s sad to know that there was a self-accident incident yesterday on the highway but no casualty and the relevant authorities are investigating into the case. The Royal Brunei Police Force were also on task to remind motorists not to speed on the highway by setting up roadblocks and speed traps. So just a bit of warning and reminder to all the drivers out there. Safety is more important and Hari Raya is coming soon too 😀

Kudos to the stakeholders involved in this project.

Pancake Galore 
 

 


One of the Set Meals we ordered recently
 

A popular franchise in the Philippines, Pancake House International has been in the Sultanate in just less than two years. Located next to the famous Thien-Thien branch in Kiulap, it’s strategically located at the corner of the building and it has an orange look/feel to it so it’s hard to miss from a distance.

With only less than a week left, why not try out their Ramadhan Combo promotion (Check out the poster). They come in three sets – Pancake Meal A, Pancake Meal B and Pancake Meal C.

Of course, their best seller is the pancake itself. Why? It’s just fluffy and the condiment and syrup compliments well with the pancakes. You can try any other pancake but the quality of the pancakes here are of high quality. I do hope they still maintain it. Not to fret as they just don’t serve pancakes but other savoury dishes such as chicken, fish and rice too.

I would say it’s a pretty good deal from the Ramadhan Combo as there are set meals if you are tired of having buffets for Sungkai. So let me go through what are mentioned in the poster.

Pancake Meal A $23.50 (Ideal for 2 pax)
2 cups of rice, 2 pcs of Pan Chicken, 1pc Tinapa (I like the fish)
2 pcs of sunny side eggs, 1 House Spaghetti
2 pcs pancake (or 1 waffle) and 2 ice tea

Pancake Meal B $40 (Ideal for 4 pax)
4 cups of rice, 4pcs of Pan Chicken or Southern Maple Chicken
1 fish roll, 1 House Spaghetti, 2 pcs Tinapa
2pcs pancake (or 2 waffles), 2 ice tea

Pancake Meal C $58 (Ideal for 6 pax)
6 cups of rice, 6pcs of Pan Chicken or Southern Maple Chicken
2 fish rolls, 2 House Spaghetti, 3 pcs Tinapa
6 pcs pancake (or 3 waffles) and 6 ice teas

For bookings, you can call 223 5250

Dining at Swensen’s

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Swensen’s Delight

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Swensen’s

 

It’s been a week of Puasa already. That means I’ve been to 7 different places for my Sungkai. My latest visit was at Swensen’s at Sengkurong (oh, they have another branch at The Mall, Gadong).

The place was was very welcoming – the fairy lights above the dinner buffet, the friendly staff, the warm interior makes up an excellent first impression. This was the only place I’ve visited that had lesser number of people but that didn’t let the mood down for everyone in there.

A bit of highlight on the main course, the varieties were just enough to get a complete taste of each item. The tomato rice and salmon pasta took the cake among the savouries. A separate station for salad as well as Kueh Teow soup was situated on one side for those looking for ‘lighter’ meals.

The star of the buffet, however, was the desserts. Apart from the delicious assorted puddings and pastries, they also served waffles. A member of the staff was patiently waiting until you finish piling those items on your plate and ask for a scoop of ice-cream. Not just that, you could top your waffles with anything from chocolate sprinkles to cookies to chocolate syrups. It just took me back to my childhood when I could eat all the sweet things in the world without any care.

Speaking of sweet things, another attraction of Swensen’s were the drinks. The good news is they have 50% off on selected drinks (such as Milo Float) if you dine in with the Sungkai buffet! Also, their bestselling item on the menu is Cendol milkshake float (not part of the discount). That is definitely something worth trying.

For a reasonable $16.80 for adults and $12 for children, you can enjoy a scrumptuous meal that will satisfy your taste buds. So if you’re near Sengkurong or don’t mind the drive there, you should go and try the buffet. You won’t be disappointed.

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Shabulicious

 

A fan of shabu-shabu and you know there have been many restaurants that offer hot pot stuff. Shabulicious now have three branches – one at Batu Bersurat and the other at Delima. But hey, I have yet to try the other branch at Food Arena, Seri Q-Lap Mall, so it was the first time that I dined in at Shabulicious at Food Arena.

What can you expect? They provide different kinds of Set Meals (refer to poster) to your liking during the month of Ramadhan. I opted for the ala carte since I don’t really eat that much. But for those who choose to have ala carte, Shabulicious offer 10% discount only during Ramadhan. And guess what? You can also take advantage of BIBD promotion (up to 30% on Tuesdays). So there will be one more Tuesday left to enjoy the 30% discount should Hari Raya falls on a Tuesday. I could be wrong.

Visit their branches Shabulicious Delima Square and Shabulicious Restaurant, Batu Bersurat, Gadong and dial their hotlines: 233 8333 / 875 0076 (Delima) 245 2000 / 888 2100 (Batu Bersurat) and 223 2022 / 729 2577 Food Arena.

The Dream Team 
 

The Sungkai video promotion on Swensen’s

 

Hello, ladies and gentlemen.. We are now on the half way mark of Ramadhan and it has been a fruitful one indeed. The common thing I would be asked from my peers is what is the best place to break fast since this is part of my job – Sungkai outings for my clients.

The irony is that even though I don’t have as much clients as before but the workload has been incredible. One reason being is the recent collaboration that I have with @filterworksproductions which have been very encouraging. I know the young boys personally but they caught my attention after a series of skits they produced.

So yes, it didn’t take me long to decide to bring them as part of my Sungkai coverage to give more leverage to my clients and at the same time, providing the young talented team a good exposure to the public. After a few episodes of our Sungkai videos, we have been in touch with newer clients (outside the F&B industry) and that to me is progress and an eye opener that this combination can give more added value to a company.

So I would like to take this opportunity to thank A’aqiil, Zainal and Fecks of @filterworksproductions for allowing me to engage in your services. Mind you, I even have a response from a former client based in Singapore who expressed her compliments on the creativity used in our Sungkai videos.

A big shout out to the F& B companies that trust our new initiative – Excapade, Tandoor, Pondok Sari Wangi, Swensen’s, Modesto, Shabulicious, Bombay Palace, Kimchi Restaurant, Momo Restaurant, It’s a Grind (Citis Square) and 03 (Aiking). A big thank you to Snapfeed also for being part on some of the project. If you are interested to engaged in the special collaboration, do contact me at 8677773 or email me at ranoadidas gmail.com and you can also view all the Sungkai videos on their Youtube channel.

Sungkai at Star Lodge

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Sungkai-ing at Star Lodge 
 

 


The Pasta Station..

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Star Lodge by Momo Restaurant

 

 

What an amazing selection of food items at Star Lodge hosted by Momo Restaurant! From Japanese cuisine to grilled to local favourites, the Sungkai buffet was a treat to the visitors.

The funny thing was there were so many items to choose from that I didn’t know where to start at all. In the end, I decided to have Laksa as my appetizer. They also had Kimchi soup as well as a pasta station.

The first thing I had noticed once I parked was the grill station. So after the Laksa, I went on to get some ‘tongking’. So much flavour that I just wanted to eat just that. But then, there was the… Japanese section. Kitaro had set up their array of sushis and pancakes and of course, you can only expect the best from Kitaro.

The buffet line was interestingly labeled on leaf-shaped cloths and they consisted of biryani, egg noodles, salmon head, chicken etc. I especially loved the sambal eggs.

Don’t forget their special promotion using BIBD cards ranging from 10% to 30% discount. The 30% discount is only applicable every Thursday using any of BIBD Credit Card with a minimum spending of $50. So you have two more Thursday left to enjoy the 30% discount at Star Lodge (Momo Restaurant).

So if you’re interested in checking it out, do it! Make your reservations or just drive to Star Lodge at Jerudong. You can also follow their social media updates @momo.restaurant and @starlodgebrunei on instagram

BBQ-ing at Kimchi Restaurant

Tel: 222 2233 | 712 2283

 

Who loves Korean food? Well, I definitely do. To our great happiness, Kimchi Restaurant at Regent Square is again having its Ramadhan Sungkai buffet. Priced at $28.90 for adults and $14.90 for children, it offers a list of all-you-can-eat items on the menu.

The place was bustling with people when I went there. But even though the staff looked extremely busy, they took care of each table and the food did not take long to arrive either. The side dishes actually arrived almost as soon as we were seated.

But the reason behind visiting Kimchi is of course for the BBQ. The BBQ selection was filled with assorted meat to seafood to vegetables to local favourites. This time also, I took my faithful Sungkai partner, Pranika. Although she doesn’t take beef, she had three different kinds of marinated chicken as well as lamb to grill. Sizzling on the grill, they made our mouths water. If you do not feel full with just meat, you can also order rice or noodles. And let’s not forget company of the crew of Filterworks Production who have been very supportive of my project during Ramadan. Thank you so much!! (Do watch their videos).

Among the desserts, I would recommend you to try something unique to Kimchi – the Patbingsu, which is something like a Korean ABC and of course, my personal favourite dessert of all Korean desserts in Brunei. Topped with sweet potatoes, jelly and red beans, it is truly a refreshing thing to have after a BBQ. If you’re not very adventurous, you can ask for ice-cream which they serve in a generous scoop.

If Kimchi is your next Sungkai stop, don’t forget to make a booking just to secure your seats.

There’s also a 15% discount on all takeaways form 11am to 5:30pm, only during the month of Ramadhan. So do take advantage of the offers Kimchi gives. You can also visit their Facebook Page for updates or follow their updates on @kimchibrunei on instagram.

Breaking fast at RBGCC

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

RBGCC Sungkai 
 

 


RBGCC is located after BEQ (Equestrian) simpang at Jerudong. Well, it’s not far from the Royal Polo and Riding Club. Just see this banner on the main road and you are almost there 😀
 

If you’re looking for a decent, quiet place without the hubbub of crowded Sungkai-ers, the Royal Brunei Golf and Country Club is the place for you. And yes, this is an unheard venue since the area is always dedicated for members of the RBGCC. So this is the first time it’s open to public for Sungkai (buffet) and I must say they are pretty impressive. Even though there weren’t a lot of people (probably because most aren’t aware of this), the staff were dutiful and attentive to us.

The restaurant itself gives a very classy ambiance, with comfortable and spacious setting. The items on the menu, although limited, make up in quality. Some of the items included nasi biryani, pineapple curry and steamed fish. Desserts consisted of assorted fresh fruit, fruit salad and kuih.

My sungkai buddies Pranika and Sharon liked the food and they were helping themselves to second rounds. Pranika enjoyed the biryani as she described it as “not too dry and not too moist – cooked with just the right amount of water”. Sharon had two favourites – the lamb, which was tender and the steamed fish (She ate almost half of the fish!). I particularly liked the cucur udang as it was flavourful and not too oily.

RBGCC, located at a quaint area in Jerudong is the best venue if you wish to spend quality time and have actual conversations while having a fulfilling meal with your family or significant others. It is priced at $15 for adults and $6 for children. But making a booking is recommended. So call them at 2611 582 or 261 2914 for bookings.

For your info, the RBGCC is just one simpang after the BEQ at Jerudong Polo Club. You won’t miss it as there will be a banner by the entrance of the simpang.

Modesto Food Fair Festival: Sungkai

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Modesto Food Fair Festival 
 

 


My guests for tonight – Nabilah and the boys from Filterworks Production minus A’aqiil
 

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Modesto

 

Finally, Modesto Bistro & Grill are introducing their Sungkai buffet line after the first week of Ramadhan. As you now Modesto has been undergoing some minor renovation to cater to the needs of their patrons. So if you have plenty of room for savoury dishes and desserts, I would recommend you to break your fast at Modesto.

Family goers would appreciate it more because they have a mini play area for their kids to wander.

For me, the clear winner is the dessert area because of the three brands that they brought in – Twinklepan, Hippo & Bees and Lof Bakery. Of course, the main courses were pretty good too at the buffet line but ironically I spent more on the desserts.

Also something about the sauce of the pasta that I like. If I’m not mistaken, it’s the one with the seafood mixture sauce. I had two rounds of those too.

Do take advantage of the promotion from BIBD and on every Tuesday you can enjoy 30% of BIBD Credit Card. Awesome!!! And not forgetting the daily discounts you can get from different range of BIBD cards.

Do experience and enjoy their special Modesto Buffet and it’s only available at Modesto Batu Bersurat branch. You can visit their Facebook Page for updates.

Pepperlunch deals

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Pepperlunch great deals 
 


Pepperlunch is located at Setia Kenangan II (next to Regent Square), Kiulap
 


Ready for a sizzling meal?
 

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Pepperlunch

 

My first experience of Pepperlunch was back in Kuala Lumpur back in 2014. It was located a food court joint of a shopping mall and I was quite impressed with the food. I didn’t realise it was a franchise until it came to Brunei last December.

Now Pepperlunch has become a household name among Bruneians and during the Ramadhan period, they are running a special gimmick for the Pepperlunch diners. Now you can enjoy one dish/meal for free when you buy 2 dishes of the menu. On top of that, they will also give you a bonus side dish and drink. Ain’t that a great deal?

Even the lunch take away, they have the same deal where you buy two and get one free. The responses have been pretty good ever since they ran the promotion and you can say that it’s really value for money.

I had my favourite dish – Premium Beef with Hamburg while my friend, Awfa, loved the Cheesy Omelette with Curry Sauce.

To see more of the choices they, you can see Thanis post on his blog entry or you can also follow Pepperlunch Brunei Facebook Page for updates. I’m definitely making another trip to Pepperlunch because the quality is just as consistent as in KL and also during my recent trip to Jakarta. Keep it up!!

The awesome promotion
 


Do make sure you stir your meat while it’s being served. So the meat will be cooked 😀
 


I simply love the presentation from Pepperlunch.
 


How you can say no to this promo? 😀
