So, the past two weeks had been a WHIRLWIND of wonders for UBD FM (despite the busy academic schedule that we're all having prior to the end-of-semester examinations).
It was definitely ChowDown Challenge with sushi having different amounts of WASABI inside them.
Our very own DJ Angel emerged victorious with a record time of chowing down a plateful of sushi in less than two minutes.
Our student deejays and crews had the opportunity to mingle with the local Internet Personalities, renowned deejays from the local radio stations and other members of the media, who were present at the social gathering, too.

For those of you who have no idea on what the Twestival is about- well, it's an offline gathering of online twitter users, which was held globally on the 24th March 2011. Twestival was aimed for a cause and locally, Twestival

On the Twestival Event itself, UBD FM became the main radio station that covered the event with DJ Billy and DJ Rara as emcees. Just like the pre-event dinner, three of our UBDfm Deejays - Angel, Billy and Rara, were game for the Man vs Food Challenge. Everybody definitely screamed ice cream for a good cause.

Other than the Twestival Brunei, UBD FM was also busy advocating 2011's Earth Hour. Held on the 26th of March, UBD FM hosted an interview prior to the event.
Representatives from the non-profit organisation Earth Hour Brunei Azahar Yaakub and Rafidah HT were present at the studio to talk about the campaign against climate change with DJ Madison.
On the event itself, UBD FM Deejays and Crews were invited by The Brunei Hotel for their Earth Hour Celebration. The Earth Hour International Buffet Dinner was a mellow symbolic celebration with a UBD FM tree collecting Earth Hour pledges. Lastly, being committed to Earth Hour, UBD FM online stream was cut off from 8.30pm to 9.30pm that Saturday.
