BGC Family Day 2022

Following a three-year hiatus, Brunei Gas Carriers (BGC) resumed its Family Day celebrations last weekend, at the Jerudong Park Playground, with staff and family members.

Approximately a thousand people attended the celebration, which began in the early afternoon up till late evening. The Family Day event was filled with a variety of activities including carnival games, sports competitions, face painting, bouncers, and much more for people of all ages.

As part of BGC’s social investment initiative, BGC also invited several NGOs including YASKA, ABLE, and SMARTER to spend their day at the playground alongside their family members. It was very heartwarming to see the smiles on the children’s faces, we surely hope that they had a pleasant time at the playground.

In support of ICV development, we also invited sixteen food vendors to operate the Family Day Food Street throughout the event. It’s safe to say that none of the attendees left the playground hungry due to the abundance of food available, from savory dishes to delicious desserts. We would like to once again thank all the vendors for supporting the Family Day event as festival friends.

With emphasis on the word ‘family’, we are thankful for the improving situation in the country, as it allowed us to spend quality time with our loved ones, to reconnect and strengthen family bonds especially after going through such a challenging year.

In the words of our Managing Director, Captain Abdul Mateen, “despite all of our day-to-day commitments and busy schedules, please remember to do things in moderation and make time for our families, for they are the most precious thing in our lives.” We are thankful to all staff for making this year’s event a success, and we can’t wait to return once again next year!
