• In a nutshell…

    The idea for The Borneo Post SEEDS began about a year ago, first as an idea as a weekly print-publication, and then more recently as a website.

    Raising funds to light up Sarawak

    By Danielle Sendou Ringgit danielleringgit@theborneopost.com @danitbpseeds     The night was full of laughter as the guests attending Barefoot Mercy’s (BFM) benefit dinner at Borneo Convention Center Kuching (BCCK) were entertained by comedians Rizal Van Geyzel, Kavin Jay and Jonathan Atherton while enjoying a feast of local indigenous cuisine on October 1st. Underlining the entertaining tone of the evening which also saw Alena Murang and The Murangs performing was BFM’s mission to raise funds towards future projects that would help alleviate the plight of many rural communities in Sarawak.

The double headed Nembrotha kubaryana was found at Kapalai, a sandbar off the coast of Sabah. The team credited with finding this out-of-this-world creature was none other than award winning filming and photography company Scubazoo. Based in Kota Kinabalu, the company produces an online web series called ‘Borneo from Below’. According to its social media manager Vinay Datla, Scubazoo contacted Clay Bryce, a nudibranch expert and marine biologist at the Western Australian Museum in Perth.

    By Patricia Hului patriciahului@theborneopost.com @pattbpseeds   A few months ago, The Borneo Post SEEDS caught up with Abby Hosanna from The Backyard Tour Guide which aimed to empower youths with jobs in eco-tourism in the Padawan area. Last year at the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) craft bazaar, we caught up with Kiew Boon Siew founder of Heart Treasures Sdn Bhd selling artwork by her ‘angels’; youths diagnosed with autism, development delay (slow learners), cerebral palsy, physical disabilities as well as orphans and single mothers.   So what do they both have in common? Both Kiew and Abby were invited to speak at SEHATI 2013 by Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre Social Entrepreneurship (MaGIC SE) in their capacities as social entrepreneurs last Saturday at Kompleks Islam Sarawak.
