Shariah Demystified

This is a very good clip. But sadly, I don’t think those who have already made up their mind about Shariah will bother to watch and understand it…

It is now up to us to demonstrate what Shariah is really about, and why it can be better than whatever conventional law that is out there… Provided it is implemented and governed by the right people who are truly qualified for the job. You wouldn’t hire a preacher or a pastor as the presiding judge or even prosecuting lawyer (ok unless he is indeed a lawyer or judge as well).

My point is, the Shariah law should be governed by government, not a ministry of religious affairs

BIBD today officially launched its MSME Current Account at the MSME Festival at the BRIDEX International Conference Centre, which will be held until the 31st of March 2019. The MSME Current Account had been introduced to the public since January 2018. BIBD MSME Current Account welcomes sole proprietorships and partnership, start-ups or companies that have been operating for ten years and below with its accommodating feature of opening and minimum daily balance B$50. However, the account opening parties must include the business owners themselves. This will focus on including more entrepreneurs to better understand and manage their business financials and also banking requirements. This will further reduce the challenges to entry into the business sector, whilst empower local businesses to take control of their capabilities to maximise their growth potential. The minimum opening of B$50 for MSME accounts is also hoped to ease businesses in maintaining and managing their business costs and finances via a business account that will also facilitate towards their business transactional requirements.

BIBD Head of Corporate Banking, Yang Mulia Koh Swam Sing commented on the recent success of BIBD’s MSME Current Account, “Acceptance from the business community is very encouraging. Start-ups and emerging companies began to understand the importance of having a business account from day one of their businesses. This is a testament to the growing efforts undertaken by both public and private sectors in a whole of nation approach to create a more dynamic and sustainable economy. Together with MSME current account, clients are entitled to enrol for online banking services BIBD BizNet and our latest electronic payment platform BIBD QuickPay.”

BIBD Deputy Managing Director Yang Mulia Hjh Noraini binti Haji Sulaiman also echoed this sentiment, “Alhamdulillah, our combined efforts for a whole of nation approach with government bodies and other private institutions seeking to support national strategies to generate economic activity beyond the oil and gas industry has also resulted in the improvement in the ease of doing business in Brunei Darussalam. This serves as a strong foundation that will, in shaa Allah, create more opportunities, facilitate the inflow of FDI and create opportunities that will also impact the economy such as in employment and growth of the business ecosystem and climate.”

Along with the further implementation of the BIBD NEXGEN platform via the introduction of BIBD’s branchless banking concept, BIBD seeks to close the gap on segments that are underserved and unbanked, especially within the retail and MSME sector. This will also de-cash the economy with digital payments that are secure, innovative and documented, creating a robust local digital payment ecosystem. These efforts are also in line with Brunei Darussalam’s smart nation initiatives and AMBD’s digital roadmap which encourages the digital payment ecosystem to embrace digital transformation that provides benefits to both users and Payment Service Providers. BIBD’s branchless banking supports this transition with migrating traditional payments and sharing its innovative digital payment infrastructure with other traditionally non-payment service providers, even beyond the banking sector, to enable other payment models to empower customers with a wider choice of payment alternatives for a richer customer experience.

Merchants or entrepreneurs wishing to know more about BIBD’s MSME Current Account or the services under its BIBD NEXGEN platform may visit the BIBD booth at the MSME Festival from the 28th until the 31st of March, and partake in realising the nation’s initiative towards a digital economy.

In celebration of its fifth Anniversary today, Starbucks Brunei introduces its newest cold beverage experience. For the first time, customers in Brunei can enjoy the Sparkling Cocoa Mango Cold Foam and the Sparkling Cocoa Berry Currants Cold Foam – two beverages that combine the very best of Starbucks innovation: cold foam and Starbucks Fizzio™. These two new beverages will be available at all its stores across Brunei starting today.

  • New! Sparkling Cocoa Mango Cold Foam

The refreshing taste of the summer lies in wait under the smooth layer of frothed cold foam. With splashes of mango and passionfruit infused with the effervescent of sparkling fizz over the rich and delicate flavors of our sweet mocha sauce. This is a beverage that surprises with every sip.

  • New! Sparkling Cocoa Berry Currants Cold Foam

Our refreshing explosion of sparkling tangy raspberry and blackcurrant juice layered over sweet mocha sauce is made even more irresistible with our velvety smooth cold foam, bringing out the deliciously fizzy and complex flavors of this delectable beverage.

“Since opening our first store in Brunei 5 years ago we have seen how customers here have made us a part of their daily lives, and embrace the bold new ways that we are reinventing our beverages and coffee each year,” said Sydney Quays, Chief Executive Officer of Berjaya Food (International) Berhad and Managing Director of Starbucks Brunei. “As we continue to deliver the Starbucks Experience to our customers in Brunei, we remain firmly committed to investing in our people, innovating our offerings and coffee at the core, and making a positive difference in the communities we serve each day.”

Starbucks first introduced cold foam when it opened the doors to its Reserve Roastery in Seattle in December 2018. While rich, steamed foam has been a hallmark of Starbucks coffee since the 1980s, cold foam is a modern twist on the classic as a perfect finish to cold beverages. Frothed cold instead of hot by blending nonfat milk until it is smooth, creating layers of creamy texture and flavor without the cream.

Meanwhile, the Fizzio™ machine is a breakthrough in carbonation technology with the ability to deliver an unmatched soda experience. Unlike existing sodas or at-home carbonation options, the machine carbonates finished beverages, ensuring every ingredient in the beverage receives the same level of carbonation and maximum flavor. The machine also delivers a customizable experience with the capability to adjust the amount of “fizz” in each beverage, and provides the option for customers to experience their favorite beverages.

Customers can also pair the new beverages with the new Ondeh-Ondeh Muffin. Inspired by the traditional local ‘kuih’, the muffin has a combination of pandan and coconut flavors, complemented with a rich ‘Gula Melaka’ or palm sugar sauce and a hint of coconut bites.

To further bring excitement to commemorate this important milestone, Starbucks Brunei is also introducing its 5th Anniversary merchandise collection which was inspired by the glistening lakes and ocean that surrounds the kingdom. The new collection includes a Double Walled Glass to help retain the temperature of your favorite Starbucks beverage, as well as a Venti (20oz) Thermos tumbler with a shimmer finish.

Taste the new handcrafted Sparkling cold foam beverages, which are priced starting at BND5 onwards and will be available at all Starbucks stores nationwide. The Starbucks Brunei 5th Anniversary merchandise collection is priced from BND12 onwards, while the ondeh-ondeh muffin is priced at BND3.80. Both the merchandise and food offering are available in stores from 16 February onwards, while stocks last.
