Introducing: BiG (Brunei Insider's Guide) Magazine

Today I was introduced to BiG Magazine. I'm not familiar with the magazine, have not seen it before. The only local free magazine (i'm assuming BiG Magazine is free because there's no price on the cover hehe) that I've come across so far is Buyer's Guide and Grab It.

Those two magazines are ok, but I like this BiG Magazine more. Why? Well, one is because I notice a familiar name within minutes of flipping through the magazine! This person is quite well known in the local blogging world, one of my daily reads (although sometimes he doesn't blog on a daily basis hehe), knew about his work initially back in the days of
Ayer Muleh and to me, he's one of the local talented photographers around :) Who could it be? It's none other than... cheng cheng cheng... Gferro! hehe His photographs were included in the magazine (front cover too!!) hehe Well done, well done!

Second reason? It's a very informative guide to Brunei - tells the little things about Brunei such as where best to eat, calender of events for the month, things to do, where to shop and even a foodie diary!

I'm not sure if this is a first issue or not - I'm assuming it's not because inside there's a photo of a lady reading a past issue of the Magazine. As quoted from the Magazine "Jointly published by CHMP Enterprise & Brunei Tourism Development Department, MIPR". So well done to both parties :) Hope they continue to publish the Magazine :)

Anyone who wants more information about BiG Magazine, contact CHMP Enterprise:

Exams Over! Do something useful - adds to your CV

Youths aged 25 years and below as well as 'A' and 'O' Levels students who had just finished their examinations are encouraged to look for part time or temporary jobs in order to use their free time constructively. By involving themselves in part-time jobs, they could gain work experience to prepare them for their career in the future.

Excerpt from BB

Interested to get a job?
Go to: Pusat Sumber Kerjaya (Careers Resource Centre)
Where: Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex

The centre can assist in exploring a whole range of careers (part-time or temporary jobs)available in the public and private sectors.

How part-time job benefits students: (Dr Eh Ah Meng)

1. Having part-time jobs will help to motivate and discipline oneself before stepping into the real working environment
2. At the same time also help to improve communication skills as they will interact with different levels of people from various fields.
3. Work experience is very important for them to be more marketable when looking for permanent jobs.
4. The most popular question asked by employers during the interview would be "Do you have any working experience?"
5. Students would not be able to learn such experience from their textbooks at school.

If not a job, interested to enchance public speaking skills?

Join: Speaker's Club

For further information,


Yee Wan Chung at +6738713668 (The Brunei Speakers' Club),

John Tse Tow at +6738605128 (HSBC Speakers Group)

Norliana Abdullah at +6738674488 (OTTERS TMC located in Belait).

Maybe Public Speaking is not your cup of tea, interested to learn something new during 'exam's over' period. Maybe like learn how to swim or triathlon training.

Check out

For Children & Adults 2 hours per session ( 4x a month)
Where: No. 50, 1st Floor, Block B, Delima Jaya Complex Serusop, Brunei

Contact: Alvina Lim

HP: 8768183


Or push yourself to do something you have been to do which is outside your normal routine. Join the Brunei Marathon and start training now. Who says there's nothing to do now exams are over.

Maybe running is not your thang' - go help out those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Bet Pusat Bahagia and Pusat Ehsan or any others that you know, might need volunteers. Money is not the only thing that they need - anyone can give money but a friend (or volunteer) is better option.

So go do something useful for yourself and other rather than lounging around the house playing games, hanging out or purely wasting time.

Anyone with any ideas for things to do after exams are over are welcome to email us for the list of useful and beneficial things to do. Hey every little things help if we can help others. Right c tau gaban :P
