Rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the eyes of the People
Press Release: The launching of the Peugeot Boutique & opening of Madbites Cafe
T.C.Y. Motors, the sole distributor of Peugeot vehicles, has just recently launched their Peugeot Boutique on the 25th of January 2013, selling everything from watches to stuffed toys. One interesting fact about the french brand is that, in the 18th century, they have been manufacturing coffee, pepper and salt grinders, long before cars came into the picture. Hence, the salt and pepper mills on display in the boutique.
As a 200 year old brand, Peugeot has come very far in terms of innovation, style, and performance. To share its rich history and its well engineered products, the boutique was incorporated into the Peugeot showroom, to allow consumers to enjoy the many varieties available from the french brand.
The MADbites company has been active in the social media network and they are very popular for their colourful macarons, which is a sweet meringue based confectionary that originated from France. Since their introduction, T.C.Y. Motors and MADbites has mutually agreed to collaborate and to open their first café inside the Peugeot showroom to showcase and sell their desserts and beverages, including their ever popular macarons.
On their opening day, both companies have received an overwhelmingly positive response from the public, as there was a 30% off on all boutique items and a 20% discount on all MADbites orders starting from 3pm, for one day only. The first 100 visitors also received a free gift, on a first come first served basis.
The stocks available in the boutique will be updated from time to time to reflect consumers' lifestyle and taste and the MADbites café will be open from 10am to 10pm, Mondays to Saturdays. The Peugeot showroom opening hours will remain from 8am to 6pm.
To find out more information, please call 2426969 or visit the Peugeot showroom and enjoy a cup of coffee while you browse around the boutique. Like Peugeot Brunei on facebook at www.facebook.com/PeugeotBru.

WITH the development of Internet usage in Brunei Darussalam covering more than three quarters of the total population, the Ministry of Development (MoD), through the Public Works Department (PWD), has stepped forward and come up with an application known as JKR-ku.
JKR-ku is an application that was created to upgrade the management of complaints and report on the problems experienced by the general public, while PWD is known as a government organisation that offers maintenance and repair services for its users.
During the launching ceremony of PWD’s latest application, JKR-ku, Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awg Haji Suyoi bin Haji Osman, the Minister of Development and guest of honour, said in his speech that it is hoped the application will be able to improve the services of the PWD, enhancing their management quality in handling reports and complaints from the general public.
Through this application, the guest of honour urged the PWD to provide a fast and more efficient response to the complainants via e-mail or telephone and also to better record all complaints and responses for future references.
