On Thursday 20 September 2018, the British High Commissioner hosted a farewell reception for Mr Abdul Azim Bin Haji Abd Kassim who has been awarded the prestigious Chevening Scholarship for the 2018–2019 and will be pursuing his postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom next month. The farewell event was held at the Residence of the British High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam.

Mr Azim Kassim, a Research Officer in the Directorate of Defence Policy at the Ministry of Defence, will be pursuing a MA in Security, Terrorism and Insurgency at The University of Leeds, in the United Kingdom.

Mr Azim Kassim said, “No words can truly describe how much the Chevening Scholarship means to me. This is a great honour and one in which I acknowledge is far from an individual effort.

This award would not have been possible without the lessons learned from my respected mentors and colleagues; both from when I was a reporter at a local newspaper, and now with the Ministry of Defence.”

Mr Azim Kassim explained, “The University was chosen based on its excellent student satisfaction levels in which it was named the Sunday Times University of the Year in 2017. It also ranked in the Top 10 Universities in the UK, according to The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and in the Top 100 of the QS World University Rankings for 2019.

The course was selected because it will enhance my understanding on national, regional and global security threats. My hope is that this course will be of relevance to my role and responsibilities at the Ministry of Defence particularly to contribute towards providing reliable and holistic policy analysis to benefit my organisation and my country.

Upon my return, I will do my best to ensure that my learning and knowledge is shared, and to continue to strengthen the defence relations between Brunei Darussalam and the United Kingdom. This scholarship is also a contribution towards Vision 2035 in its pillar of achieving a highly skilled workforce.

The British High Commissioner H.E. Richard Lindsay, said: “It is a great pleasure to be able to present the 2018-19 Chevening Scholarship to Azim Kassim. This competitive scholarship is given to individuals who have proven that they have the potential to be future leaders. Azim will be one of over 2000 Chevening Scholars who receive this award for a fully-funded year of postgraduate study in the UK each year. He will also be joining a global alumni network of over 50,000 Chevening Scholars. In this country, the Brunei Chevening Youth Forum is a very active alumni group which is dedicated to sharing their expertise and discussing how to meet some of the biggest challenges facing the country. In due course, I am confident that Azim will use his experiences to make a very significant contribution back into Brunei. Many congratulations to him, and to his very supportive family and colleagues”

Mr Azim was welcomed into the Chevening family by the President of the Brunei Chevening Alumni Association YB Khairunnisa, who was a Chevening scholar herself in 2016-17, together with other alumni members. (picture attached).

The High Commissioner said that applications for the 2019/20 Chevening Scholarships were currently open to citizens and permanent residents of Brunei Darussalam. The ideal candidate would be in early to mid career, with at least 2 years’ work experience and an excellent record of achievement with evidence of leadership qualities. Applicants should be committed to returning to contribute to Brunei’s social and economic development by using the skills and knowledge acquired in the UK.

All those interested in applying for the 2019/2020 Chevening scholarship should visit www.chevening.org/Brunei where potential applicants can find information on how to apply, register interest to receive alerts about their application and candidate guidance, as well as to see the priority subjects for Chevening Scholarships.

Financial fitness can be defined as having enough money to meet one’s needs when it’s needed, including in an emergency.

Financial fitness can be defined as having enough money to meet one’s needs when it’s needed, including in an emergency. This would mean living within one’s means, with manageable debt and to have savings. But is this enough? What about owning a home, children’s education and retirement funds? The list can become long but it is achievable, with proper financial planning.

Being financially fit requires a careful exercise in financial planning – understanding one’s cash flow, defining one’s objectives and goals, going through budgeting, and knowing how much to save as well as to invest. Just like starting on a physical fitness programme, the starting process for financial planning can be quite stressful and overwhelming.

To help relieve the stress of achieving financial fitness, the public can approach a personal financial planner to get a free professional financial consultation at Baiduri Bank. They can drop by any Baiduri Bank branch or set up an appointment at Baiduri Bank Wealth Management Centre by calling 226 8363 or 226 8359.

To empower customers to take this first step towards achieving financial fitness, Baiduri Bank has launched the “Stay Financially Fit” campaign. From 3 August to 31 October 2018, customers who successfully sign up for selected insurance plans offered by Baiduri Bank are treated to special welcome gifts.

By signing up to a selected insurance plan with a monthly premium of BND100 and above, Baiduri Bank is rewarding successful customers with a choice of either an SMA heart rate monitor and activity tracker band or BND50 worth of shopping vouchers from Zalora.

Full details and terms and conditions of the promotion can be found on www.baiduri.com. For more information on other products and services offered by the Bank, please call the 24-hour Baiduri Bank Customer Helpline at 244 9666.

Baiduri Bank offers an array of financial products and investment options to suit the needs and lifestyle of their clients. Additionally, Baiduri Bank has a growing team of professionally trained financial planners, who are available at Baiduri Bank branches to provide financial consultation, conduct gap analysis, risk profile analysis and more, in order to determine which financial products and investment options are best suited for the needs and lifestyle of their clients.

BIBD yesterday strengthened its collaboration with key government ministries in efforts to support Brunei Darussalam’s Wawasan 2035 to develop well- educated and highly-skilled individuals with a Temburong educational trip to schools in Sekolah Rendah Selapon, Sekolah Rendah Selangan and Sekolah Arab Temburong.

The existing collaborations are focused to accomplish the national strategy to prepare Brunei’s youth for an increasingly competitive and knowledge-based future. BIBD also took the opportunity to present educational materials to all three schools to supplement the development of their education.

The BIBD travelling party, which included senior management personnel, members of its Corporate Social Responsibility team along with BIBD ALAF volunteers, also extended their visit by engaging the local community to identify other opportunities for improvement to support the development and educational needs of its community.

The visit is also part of BIBD’s effort to further strengthen its relationships with students from the BIBD ALAF Programme, another key collaboration with the Bruneian government, specifically the education arms of the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA). Concurrently, the BIBD party also took time to visit BIBD ALAF programme students, their families at their homes along with engagements with ALAF teachers from MoE and MoRa. This holistic approach allows BIBD to ensure the educational progress of ALAF students.

Hj Mohammad Yusri bin Hj Wahsalfelah, BIBD Head of Government Relations and Special Projects, commented, “It is essential that we support the development of education for our youth as future leaders to create a robust economy towards a sustainable society. This direct engagement approach allows us to better understand their living conditions and extend the right support. “On behalf of BIBD, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners from the public and private sector on our continued collaborations to further fortify the future of Brunei Darussalam”.

About The ALAF Programme

The BIBD ALAF (Advocating Life-Long Learning for An Aspiring Future) programme currently supports the development of more than one hundred and seventy students. The programme is kept sustainable by collaborated efforts from both public and private efforts which include BIBD’s own charity expeditions for ALAF, generous contributions from corporate agencies as well as members of the general public.

How can the public support the ALAF Programme

Members of the public wishing to contribute into the BIBD ALAF Programme fund may do so with a minimum donation of B$1.01 into the BIBD ALAF account at 1018181811 via BIBD channels such as the BIBD Online website, BIBD Mobile app, BIBD ATM and CDMs, and BIBD branch counters. The public can also set up a BIBD Standing Instruction to ensure a monthly donation into the ALAF fund. As an added option, BIBD account holders can also use their accumulated BIBD Hadiah Points for cash conversion into contributions into the ALAF fund account.

The visit is also part of BIBD’s effort to further strengthen its relationships with students from the BIBD ALAF Programme as well as the teachers who continuously support their education.

BIBD took the opportunity to also hand over books to add to the school library, an air conditioning unit to provide comfort to the students, and prizes to fifteen students who excelled in their education. The BIBD party also took time to visit BIBD ALAF programme students in Labi.

“Alhamdulillah, we are able to contribute towards this cause with reaching out to the students of Labi, and also our own ALAF programme students to improve their learning conditions, while also taking the opportunity to thank the schools and teachers who continue to ensure the students’ future success.”

With just 1 day to go, the organisers and partners of the 23rd edition of the Baiduri Masters are busy at work putting together the final touches for the tournament.

RBA Golf Club crewmembers have been working through the night grooming the golf course to provide an optimum playing surface which includes grass trimming to remove any excess, green rolling to ensure a smooth putting surface and repairing any signs of turf stress and disease.

The event partner and sponsor of two hole-in-one prizes a Mini Cooper S Countryman and a BMW 740Li, QAF Auto Sdn Bhd, as a show of support towards the Baiduri Masters, have also put in the work to decorate their cars with official Baiduri Masters livery.

Sivakumar Krishnan, General Manager for QAF Auto Sdn Bhd, said in a statement, “We have been the sponsor for the Baiduri Masters for well over a decade and as the official event partner for the Baiduri Masters, QAF Auto is proud to be the premium automobile partners for the hole-in-one cars these past few years. We have always aligned ourselves with being the premium automobile so the partnership with Baiduri Bank for the Baiduri Masters, the most prestigious golfing event in the country, is an apt one.”

The Baiduri Masters is set to take place over two weekends starting tomorrow, Friday 27 April until Sunday 29 April and the weekend starting Friday 4 May until Sunday 6 May. With limited slots available, those that are still interested in competing at Brunei’s largest and most prestigious annual golfing event are encouraged to register soon as slots are on a first-come first-served basis.

Those that haven’t registered for the tournament can still do so at the RBA Golf Club, First Floor, VIP Room. Participants are encouraged to play more than once to improve their chances of winning, and they will enjoy a BND10 discount on the registration fee on their subsequent rounds.

The Baiduri Masters tournament is divided into 4 divisions – Men’s, Group, Ladies and Junior. The Men’s division will be further divided into Men’s Gross, Men’s Nett and Senior Golfers Nett. To be eligible for the Ladies Division, ladies must have a handicap of 36 and below and to be eligible for the Junior Division, junior golfers must be between 13 – 18 years old.

For more details, the public can log onto the website www.baiduri.com or call the RBA Golf Club at 8773612 during office hours.
