2nd August 06 BCL Coffeeplus

I remember dari dulu BCL Coffeeplus always conduct activities to make life in Brunei more interesting. In the past I often get my fortnightly emails from Jungle drum telling us what are events happening around Brunei with the International community here in Brunei. Jungle Drum was actually run by an expat for expats. So it was very interesting to see what activities were carried out by those who come from a different part of the world than us.

I remember they often run hashes, activities like painting making mosaics done from the International School in Berakas, expats selling their boats and so much more.. I never knew the person who actually ran Jungle Drum but whoever you are... Thank you for making my life as a Bruneian much more interesting. Knowing what ya'll are doing makes me appreciate being a Bruneian living in Brunei. Fyi Jungle Drum is no longer an active website.

I guess one of the ways for me and my friend to share this joy of sharing with others what we enjoy about being here in Brunei and trying to revive Jungle Drum (in a slightly different way) is through our blog... Bahapa Kitani - meaning What are we going to do? For those who are new to our blog WELCOME, SELAMAT DATANG, HOLA, HOWDY, HEY, and HI! For those who are our daily readers, spread the word about how cool Brunei is and yes there are things to do here... Plenty! You can find some of em through our blog. We are after all the land of many treasures! That's the beauty of it!

Okay enough talk and let's get down to the usual scene...

British Community Link (BCL) Coffeeplus is holding a gathering on 'How to enhance your life through change'.

Date: 2nd August 2006
Time: 9.30am
Venue: Orchid Garden Hotel, Berakas
Admittance fee: $7 inclusive of refreshments

What is this talk and gathering about this time round?

  • Talk by Counselling Psychologist, Todd McPherson of Riverview Medical Clinic
  • Fed Up with something in your life?

  • Would you like to change it but dont seem to know?

  • Like to feel better about yourself?

  • Todd McPherson will explain how you can address this issue of change

This promises to be an extremely interesting and informative talk.
