Notice from BSM  
 


A rumour that circulated last weekend. Do be careful in releasing an information are not true. If you are in doubt of any information in relation to BSM, try and contact their BSM Call Centre 224 4739
 

 

  
 

Who will you run as? 
 


Coming to you this August. Registration ends on 27th July 2016 (Two more days). Don’t forget to register [Click image to enter]
 

Are you ready for an awesome gimmick run? After two months of break, running events are back!! Perhaps this race is something more exciting than previous runs that have been organised. This is because of the items that runners are expected to receive as part of their race pack. The items themselves look very collectible especially the medals and even their running attire where a top and a sock will be given depending on your choice of superhero.

Apart from that, you can also pre-order merchandise of Batman V Superman which are available on their main website such as mugs, watch, t-shirts and many more. Hence, I would say there is a lot of thought being put into this racing event.

The closing date of the registration will be on the 27th July 2016 as well as the payment for the Batman V Superman Brunei Darussalam Run. As for the running event itself, it will take place on 21st August 2016 at the Jerudong Park Amphitheatre. Click here to go to the official website and register there.

The event is organised by Heroes Brunei (under Armtrix Enterprise) and it’s supported by the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports. All the best and I’m pretty sure there will be a good turn of this event.

DST Hari Raya  
 


Among the attendees at DST “Social Media” Raya was the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports (2nd from right).
 


DST has been quite particular with invitees and all attendees will have to register their names for attendance
 

Interestingly enough DST hosted a so called “Social Media” Raya theme last week and it was held at the usual spot at JIS Arts Centre at Jerudong International School. I kinda like the venue though and the set up this time has much improvement from last year – more space to wander around and mingle.

As I mentioned the theme is “Social Media” Raya, inspired by the ongoing lifestyle tread of social media tools used for social interaction in a tech savvy society. You will come across familiar names such as WhatsApp, Google, Facebook and so on. Furthermore, the guests were entertained by a 6-piece orchestra (Malcolm and his friends) and I truly enjoyed the occasion.

There were nice range of food vendors, popular on social media and the one that caught my eye.. I mean, my taste, was the delicacy from @piasau.glace (must try). The set up of all the vendors were uniformed and it showed a simple nice touch to the Hari Raya event.

According to Radin Sufri Radin Basiuni, Assistant General Manager of Group Corporate Communications, the team enjoyed setting up the Raya themed event and it was a fun challenge to incorporate social media into the event. It’s also an opportunity combined with the spirt of Hari Raya to meet at one time and provide them with hospitality.

Aside from DST’s annual celebration, the leading telco had organised a series of Hari Raya celebrations including DST Hari Raya with Special Needs Children and also for Corporate associates from the Belait District.

Hosting the event were Awang Abdul Lattif, member of the DST Board of Directors and Suhaimi Hussain, CEO of DST.

Plenty of opportunities 

 

at Energy Week 2014 

 


His Majesty speaking to Dyg Siti Saffawana Hj Suhaili, Brunei Shell Petroleum’s first female pilot


His Majesty touring the Shell Eco-Marathon area. All these cars are built by students.


The Minister of Energy, Pehin Datu Singamanteri Col (Rtd) Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Awg Hj Mohammad Yasmin bin Hj Umar, has always been very involved with the ongoing current Energy Week 2014 at BRIDEX. I haven’t seen such an involved and hand-ons minister. Pehin and his team has invested a lot of effort and contribution in creating opportunities for the community. So I’m very honoured to see your high involvement, Pehin, in making this event not just bigger but a successful one and hopes the momentum doesn’t just end there.

With the current rate of local unemployment on the increase during the past few years, relatively coinciding with the rapid hike in the number of graduates of higher education, the Government of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam continues to provide more job opportunities to accommodate local job seekers.

Over 1,000 job vacancies have been made available at the Oil and Gas Career and Job Fair of the Energy Week 2014, which was launched last Monday by His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam at the Bridex International Convention Centre in Jerudong. Held annually since 2011, the fair aims to encourage locals to dive into a career in the oil and gas industry in Brunei Darussalam.

Fifty five companies will be present throughout the Energy Week, readied with a total of 1,130 technical and non-technical positions up for grabs.

Classified into 14 job categories, the fair has 320 vacancies in the field of engineering; 255 in construction; 194 in health, security, safety and environment; 133 in operations; 91 in marine; 40 in business/finance; 32 in IT; 27 in administration; 18 in logistics; 10 in hospitality/catering; five in legal; two in aviation; two in human resources and one in the supply chain.


When you cycle, you create energy and this is one way to create energy conservatively. Currently BSP Pavilion is having a mini competition to those who can bring the most energy/watts in one minute span. This student from ITB was the highest scorer then but lost his energy level after realising he didn’t have any meals since breakfast. Hope you are better now 🙂


I only managed to produce half of what the ITB student did

There is also quizzes to try out at BSP Pavilion at Energy Week 2014

On top of the 55 job vacancy booths, the fair also features career development paths for certain jobs skill pool in the industry, as well as a CV writing clinic which should be able to aid job applicants to get a better idea of how best to structure their curriculum vitae in respect to the fields they intend to pursue.

Like in previous job fairs, this year’s participating companies will also be conducting walk-in interviews and live demonstrations.

The Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office (EDPMO) will continue to work closely with oil and gas industry players to achieve the goal of creating at least 50,000 employment opportunities and producing 5,000 professional locals and 35,000 skilled and semi-skilled workers in the energy sector in line with the nation’s Vision 2035.

One of first steps if you want to be involved in Oil and Gas is to sign up and register. Procedure is simple and more than 1,000 applicants have already registered


I learnt some new about “marker fitter” and it is a very specialized technique of welding. The more advanced you are in qualifications, the more pay you will get and entry level is at zero knowledge. Why not give this a shot?


Faizal gave me some insight of his job scope and he seems to be a hardworking individual who never wants to stop learning and gain experience. We need more youth like him.


It’s nice to see our locals knowing technical stuff and explaining on how the pressure gauge works.


Do you know that scaffolding pays good money when you go up the rank? This is another avenue for the youth to be involved with and trust me, you will enjoy this and you will surprised how much the pay is once you go through different levels and experiences as a scaffolder. Thanks Jeffrin for the information. 

  


Phase 2 of Hengyi’s multi-billion 
 

dollar plan starting 2019 
 


His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam visiting Hengyi Industries Sdn Bhd’s pavilion at the 2014 Energy Week Exhibition
Phase two of Hengyi’s multi-billion dollar oil refinery and aromatics production plant is expected to begin operation in 2019, two years after phase one production begins, according to information from their pavilion at the Energy Week fair at the BRIDEX International Convention Centre.

According to the information displayed at their booth, phase one is expected to begin operation in 2017.

Phase one will produce petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, Jet A-1 fuel and petrochemical products such as paraxylene and benzene, said the company in a press statement. It also noted that the construction for phase one is scheduled to begin as soon as “once all conditions have been satisfied”.

According to one of Hengyi’s technicians, William Kwok who was at their pavilion at the Energy Week exhibition, work in clearing the land has been completed and they are at the moment, reclaiming areas of sea that will eventually be used to dock tankers.

He assured that they have been keeping in line with the Environmental Impact Assessment that has been done prior to the start of the project, and will continue to follow it when they begin operations.

For example, they have deployed monitoring devices for the reclamation process so that debris and other ground matter that had been disturbed would not spread too far from the construction site, contaminating its surroundings. “The devices measure the turbidity of the water, so if it gets too high, we stop construction and let it settle first,” he said.

He also noted that there are a number of heritage sites, usually old cemeteries, had been fenced off and expected to be left undisturbed.

Kwok also explained a number of technologies that they plan to use once the plant has been built, including a heat reclaimation system that hoped to reduce emissions as well as a “mulit-feed distillation system” which distills sea-water to fresh water for use by the refinery which uses relatively low energy compared to other systems.

The investment for Phase one of the project is expected to create about 780 job opportunities.

Phase two, an expansion of the petrochemical production, is expected to push the total project cost to USD$6 billion, from the USD$4 billion invested into phase one. Another 700 or more jobs are expected to be added once phase two begins operation, according to the company’s information at the Energy Week 2014 exhibition.

The total area the refinery and aromatics production plant is expected to occupy is about 280 hectares.

Hengyi Industries were among one of the companies that showcased an interactive booth displays representing company profile, local business development activities, Universiti Brunei Darussalam & Zhejiang University scholarship programme and products display amongst others.

Hengyi Industries also took part in the Job Fair & LBD Forum that showcased the various educational schemes, employment opportunities and business development initiatives undertaken to increase the ‘local content’ of locally registered companies.

According to previous reports, The phase one complex will be able to produce 1.5 million tonnes a year of diesel; 400,000 tonnes a year of gasoline; one million tonnes per year of jet kerosene; 1.5 million tonnes per year of naphtha, 1.5 million tonnes per year of paraxylene (PX) and 500,000 tonnes per year of benzene.

Brunei to celebrate 
 

Earth Hour on Saturday 
 


His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei mingling with representatives of Earth Hour Brunei at Energy Week 2014 at BRIDEX. There will be there until Saturday.

It’s happening soon. Earth Hour that is. It’s an awareness about energy conservation and it’s no surprise that Brunei is joining again this year. So basically it’s switching off non-essential lights for an hour (normally from 8:30pm) and this year, our Minister of Development will lead the symbolic “lights-off” initiative at Yayasan Sultan Hj Hassanal Bolkiah this Saturday 29th March.

Apparently there will be ongoing activities to keep the spirit and the momentum of Earth Hour celebration in Brunei. There will be a fun run and cycle ride and even a night walk around Bandar. Of course, the best form of spreading such news is on social media and I urged all of you to share this moment on instagram with the hashtag #EHBN and you can follow them too @earthhourbn for more details and updates.

Did you know this year’s global ambassador for Earth Hour is Spider-Man with a simple message to inspire individuals to become “superheroes for the planet”. Nice!! I shall be covering that event organised by WWF-Singapore where there will be a special appearance by the casts of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the Marina Bay Skyline.

As for Brunei, the other landmarks will be Kampung Ayer Cultural and Tourism Gallery, Royal Wharf, and Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque. For more information, you can visit their website.

 


Join the instagram bandwagon and spread the awareness of Earth Hour

French Exhibition in April 
 


His Excellency Jean Yves Berthault, French Ambassador in Brunei Darussalam hosting dinner for the media and bloggers at his residence two nights ago

Thank you, Your Excellency Jean Yves Berthault for hosting the media and bloggers two nights ago at his residence. Jean Yves Berthault is the current French Ambassador in Brunei Darussalam. I really love the residence which has an awesome view of the river from the top of the hill along Kota Batu area. Furthermore, we all were well fed by the excellent cuisine and we were treated to various kinds of cheese as well 😀

The reason for the dinner invitation was to officially announce by the French Ambassador of the upcoming event organised by the French Embassy in Brunei Darussalam, a French Exhibition – A Showcase of Everything French. The event will take place on Saturday 5th April 2014 at the Times Square Shopping Centre.

His Excellency said that this is the first time that the French Embassy organised such event and the aim is to give the community of Brunei Darussalam a taste of what France as to offer. There will be activities such as the French Cuisine Showcase, basic French Language tutorial by Alliance Francaise, education opportunities with Campus France, car showcase by Peugeot and showcase of welding expertise from Institut de Soudure.

His Excellency shared that these showcases will also reinforce bilateral businesses between Brunei and France as well as the trust they place in the vibrant future of Brunei Darussalam.

France is also in support to Brunei’s VISION 2035 by encouraging the development of cooperation in vocational studies. In this case, Institut de Soudure is to set up a high-end vocational study with Mechanical Training Centre so that our locals will be given a high quality training for welding to match the demands especially in the Oil and Gas sector. I personally went to see the booth of Syarikat Pakar Tenaga Bersatu at the Energy Week 2014 at BRIDEX to learn more on how they are involved in the training program for welders. You will be surprised how much welders can earn as they rise up the ranks and qualifications.

Also present during the dinner was Pierre Imhof, the President of the French Brunei Business Association and he plays an important role in the synergies of French brands, companies and organisations with Brunei Darussalam.

So do come to the French showcase on the Saturday 5th April 2014 at the Times Square Shopping Centre and you can also stand a chance to win two airplane tickets to France as part of the lucky draw sponsored by Air France.

The event is supported by Total, French Brunei Business Association, Amundi Asset Management, Air France, Institut de Soudure, Peugeot, Michelin, Alliance Francaise and Campus France.
