Make Your Wish Now

20th March 2009, Friday – Due to my couriousity to know more about Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) Wish Campaign, I went to The Mall Manggis to find out further details about the campaign…and to take some photos of the campaign official launching ceremony.

The launching ceremony was held at about 2.30 pm this evening. The campaign was launched by Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Hamzah Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Abdullah bin Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Haji Bakar, Minister of Development and Chairman of BIBD. In his speech, YB Pehin stressed the important of saving, in which the campaign itself promote saving culture.

Also present at the ceremony was Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Dewa Major General (Retired) Dato Seri Pahlawan Awang Haji Mohammad bin Haji Daud, Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister’s Office.

For further details about BIBD Wish Campaign (including its Term and Conditions), you can visit BIBD Wish Campaign website.

p/s 1: I wish…(If you want to know my wish, you can visit the BIBD Wish Campaign website, if it is listed/posted. May be I will submit my wish there, in a few weeks/months time from today).

Just in case, my and yours wish are not granted by BIBD, there is an alternative. According to BIBD Wish Campaign brochure, “BIBD also wishes to inspire philanthropic spirit through this campaign by inviting the better-off among us to embrace a wish. Potential benefactors can choose to fulfil any of the shortlisted wishmakers who are not sponsored by BIBD through the wish Campaign website.” (In other words, someone may make your wish come true).

p/s 2: Nice idea, BIBD.
