The Tourism Development Department under the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism is pleased to announce the Brunei Gastronomy Week which will be held for the second time from the 23rd February to the 11th March 2018. This is an annual event initiated by the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism and the Brunei Tourism Board. Brunei Gastronomy Week is organized in conjunction with the 34th National Day celebrations where the Ministry will be collaborating with several hotels and restaurants in Brunei Darussalam including Airlines, Association of Travel Agents, Brunei Association of Hotels, Hospitality Schools and other private sectors. The target audience predominantly consists of local as well as international visitors who are currently in the country.

The objective of the event is to celebrate Brunei and create an awareness on the Bruneian Cuisine; to encourage more hotels and restaurants to serve the Bruneian cuisines in a more sophisticated way; to further improve on the taste and elevate the presentation of Bruneian dishes to be served as part of a fine dining experience or at receptions held within or outside the country; to provide a unique Bruneian gastronomical experience to visitors within or outside Brunei.

The highlight of the Brunei Gastronomy week this year would be foods wrapped in banana (or other) leaves. Banana leaves used for cooking, wrapping and food-serving in a wide range of cuisines in tropical and subtropical areas. It adds a nice aroma to the food and improves the taste of some foods. Bruneian cuisines which are typically wrapped in banana leaves are such as Pais Daging, Pais Udang, Pais Ikan and others. They are either grilled, barbecued, steamed, or oven cooked finished. In addition, during the Brunei Gastronomy Week also encourages ethnic groups of Brunei in all 4 districts to take the opportunity to showcase their local ethnic cuisine.

2013 in retrospect…

Wow, how quickly time flies. We’re about to say goodbye to 2013. Its been quite an eventful year for me.  Bittersweet to say the least… A lot of sweet moments which I am grateful for, alhamdulillah… the bitter moments I take as a lesson from above, alhamdulillah… Looking forward to a wonderful year ahead full of positive energy and changes for the better for myself and all of you as well! Thank you for your support thus far and I look forward to your continued support both here and on the other social media channels.

January started off with coverage of the Consumer Fair 11 which was held at a less than optimum location. The giant tents put up for the exhibitors felt like they had insufficient ventilation and lighting. The flooring was also quite rickety to the point that the displays at the various booths literally swayed with the movement of people in the tent.

This was followed by TelBru’s High Speed Broadband campaign launch in February at Times Square.  At that time TelBru had just passed the 1,000 home connect mark. As we move into the new year, TelBru is well into 5 digit territory.

Then came Chinese New Year, and one of the highlights was NBT’s Chinese New Year Festive display. Over the years, NBT’s elaborate displays have become a fixture of the festive seasons a place where locals and tourists alike can soak in the joyous atmosphere and take pictures that will serve as sweet memories for many years to come.

To mark the introduction of the Baiduri i-Banking mobile app in June 2013, Baiduri Bank launched a 6-month campaign to encourage customers to download the app and utilize it, with attractive prizes to be won. During the campaign, customers were automatically entered into the draw each time they carried out a transaction using the app.

At the end of the campaign, three lucky customers who utilized the app were picked.  They received their prizes at Kiarong Branch recently. Hjh Mashaslinah bte Hj Md Said won a 2 nights stay at Empire Hotel while Ami Shah Ismawandi won an MasterCard CashCard preloaded with B$400 and Muhammad Reeda Malik, the AnakBrunei blogger who was represented by his daughter, won a B$400 AV Electronics gift voucher.  Antonia Jasmine K,  Senior Officer at the Corporate Communications and Marketing Department of Baiduri Bank was on hand to present the prizes.

Since its launch, usage of the app has been increasing as more and more i-banking customers move to the mobile version because it is portable, making managing of their personal funds very convenient. As one of the delighted winners explained, “The mobile banking app is very convenient and easy to use”.

The Baiduri Personal i-Banking app first made its debut in the market on 25th of June 2013 and was developed as part of Baiduri’s initiatives to continuously improve customer experience.  Packed with existing i-Banking features, the app is available for download on App Store and Google Play at no charge. Customers can safely use this app while overseas because the app utilises the mobile or token authentication just like the existing i-Banking.

Over the weekend, Pusat Ehsan held its 7th Charity Bazaar at the Jubilee Park for the first time in a three-day event starting August 31.

It is one of the many events organised by Pusat Ehsan for 2012 following its successful fund-raising half marathon event, ‘The Run’ recently.

The bazaar is an annual event and is a fundraising activity where coupons can be purchased for $5 each and can be used to purchase goods for the charity bazaar as well as take part in activities and a chance to enter the lucky draw. People can also purchase the coupons from four other outlets which are the KFC branch in Gadong Central, Pastamania branch in Times Square as well as Fitness Zone in Kiulap and Serusop.

For the first time since its establishment, the event was held outside the Pusat Ehsan compound so as to make the event more accessible to members of the public.

According to Aaron Goh, one of the committee members for the charity bazaar, another reason why the event was located away from the Bengkurong centre was to “bring the special needs awareness to a greater height”.

He added that the event is also in line with the ‘National Family Day’ theme that was initiated by His Royal Highness Prince Haji ‘Abdul ‘Azim.

The British High Commission participated in the Pusat Ehsan’s 7th Charity Bazaar with its London 2012 Paralympics themed booth.

With the Paralympic Games running from Wednesday, August 29 until Sunday, September 9, the British High Commission saw this as a perfect opportunity to get Bruneians excited about the Paralympics, especially with Brunei’s first para-athlete, Shari Hj Juma’at, to debut at the Games where he is a medal contender in the javelin event.
