Big thanks to BAG Network!!!

Once upon a time last year, the BAG Network staff gain knowledge on compost, the hows, whats, when and which from Dr Irene Cheong, the university's environmentalist and leading member of UBD sustainability group. As a token of appreciation, the BAG Network pledge to plant 100 trees at Universiti Brunei Darussalam. The planting activity started fittingly during the world environment day in June 2009 with the last and 100th tree planted during His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei 63rd Birthday on 15th July 2009.

Thank you also to the Forestry Department, Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources for donating the seedlings!

The area where the trees are planted ~ Chancellor Hall Parking Area

The BAG Network arranged for holes of size
approximately 1m x 1m to be dug around the area.

The hole was then filled with topsoil, some bioroot goodness and fertilizer.

Gymnostoma nobili

Another seedling, also native to the Kerangas Forest area


Our heartfelt congratulations and warmest wishes to His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izaddin Waddaulah Sultan and Yang Di Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, Chancellor of Universiti Brunei Darussalam on the ocassion of His Majesty's 63rd Birthday.

Daulat Kebawah Duli Tuan Patik.

On campus accommodation

On campus accommodation at Universiti Brunei Darussalam is located just 4 minutes away, by foot from the faculty buildings. The pictures below feature the Female Residential College. In total, there is approximately 700 space for rent to students in both Female and Male Residential College. In my earlier posts, I have featured the currently under construction Residential College.

The rooms are highly popular amongst the UBD students.

The Female Residential College has 6 blocks
and Male Residential College has 4 blocks.

View from the back. Due to the the campus's close proximity to the South China Sea, the inhabitants of the Residential College experience fresh sea breeze nearly all day..

A typical block is a 2 storey block, with the common
facilties such as kitchen and bathrooms in the middle.

A typical kitchen. One for each floor. The Residential Colleges is a
catered facility, although some students do opt to self cater. The eatery is
located within the central area.

A typical prayer room...

Dining area...

This is how a typical room looks like. The pictures
are taken during the long vacation
period ~~ thats why the room look a bit anonymous..
Most students except a for few international students
vacate their room during this long break.
The Estate Office carry out major
repairs and cleaning works during this time.

View from one of the rooms in the ground floor. All rooms are
equipped with a study area, single bed, and a closet.

The University takes safety seriously. These canisters are
found within easy access throughout the accommodation.

A typical bathroom..

All the blocks are equiped with ramps to ensure accesibility for all.

Screen. Enter.

Screening points operation hours: 7.00am to 3.30pm

Screening points are manned by the heroic security officers of UBD and volunteers.

Screeners are properly trained by our in-house nurses
from the Institute of Medicine.

Locations of other screening points within UBD

Screening Points at UBD: H1N1

From tomorrow, Monday, 6th July 2009, everyone entering the university campus will have their temperature screened. This is part of the University's preparedness plan in the face of the rising H1N1 cases in Brunei Darussalam.

5 screening points will be in operation:

  1. Chancellor Hall - At the lobby
  2. Administration Building - At the foyer
  3. Central Lecture Theaters - At the foyer (ground floor)
  4. Institute of Medicine - At the main entrance
  5. Library - At the main entrance

The number of screening points will be adjusted according to needs ~ We are currently on a long break and the new semester will start on 25th July 2009.

As part of the standard operating procedure, those with temperature above 38 degree Celsius or exhibiting any of the H1N1 symptoms (runny nose, cough, sore throat, difficulty in breathing, joint pains, headache, dizziness, diarrhea or vomiting) will be given a face mask and advised to go to the nearest health centre immediately.

For more up-to-date news on H1N1 in Brunei Darussalam, please visit the Ministry of Health Website and UBD Website.

University inhabitants. In camouflage.

Look who I found! In camouflage. Almost missed it. I'm not sure what it is though, it looks like a butterfly in white tile and cement colour to me :) Top contender for a place as the Estate Office mascot.
