Brunei Trip

Miao invaded the country, Brunei Darussalam

Continue from  Sarawak Trip: Part 1 | 2 | 3 | Ghost In Bintulu |3.5 | 4.0 | Brunei

Our last destination is Limbang. The last division of  Sarawak which is separated by Brunei.

So to get into Limbang we have to pass tru Brunei.

And so we did!

The toll to the “highway” to Brunei.

Beside going through the immigration, another way to know you’re in Brunei is when…

The road is super smooth can!!

If only we have this real highway in Sarawak.

Cursed the xxxx who said this..

Our landscape is the same with Brunei. Stupid old man. #cursedieyou

Smooth road means no more neck cracking road!!

First stop in Brunei was the Ministry of Tourism of Brunei. I found out the King aka Prime Minister aka Minister of  Tourism too supposed to meet us on that day but he couldn’t make it. That’s too bad. 🙁 It would be an awesome experience if that happens.

In case, you guys don’t know. This year is the first year of Visit Sarawak Year, it’s a campaign to promote the various festivals and point of interest we have to both the locals as well as the foreign tourists.

The theme song:

Well, my job was to follow them and document the journey across this land of hornbills. It’s not a tour trip so there wasn’t much touristy to share.

Alright, back to Brunei XD

We drove passed this majestic looking building. Not sure what it is but i think it’s the Prime minister office if not mistaken.

Le shophouse in Brunei. They have *Jawi signboards, just like Kelantan.

(*thanks for the correction 🙂 )

And lot’s of Pepsi signboards too instead of  Coca colas. Brunei love pepsi more?

I noticed something in Brunei. First,

Most of the house are detached houses with yards! Not much terrace or semi detached houses. And I believe they have super low crime rate, most of the houses has no fence.

Oh and, there aren’t much high rise, at most only 5 floors?

Later only I found out it’s a law that…

Before we left Brunei for Limbang, the team decided to drove into the city centre let us noobs to have a look at Brunei.

If not mistaken, this is a shopping mall.

Sushi restaurant. They say Brunei has awesome sushis.

I don’t believe, unless someone from Brunei wanna treat me to prove it. *koff koff*

And be hold!!!

The grand mosque of Brunei.  The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque. It’s gorgeous.

While some of the rangers went in for prayers, I sneaked off and have a look more of the city.

This four buildings are part of the shopping mall. Super quiet for a Saturday evening.

The street was kinda empty too.

The only busy place was the river. Super happening like highway.

They even has a signboard in by the river.

On the other side is the floating village. The village is huge, there’s school and field on the floating village. And everyone who stays there are darn rich, the house may looked like ordinary wooden house from the outside. Don’t be fooled!!

I saw a video before, the interior is like a palace itself with glittering crystal lamps and stuff. Each house even has their own boats!

Couldn’t get too far on foot, and afraid the rest might be waiting for me. I rushed my way back.

Back there; out of curiosity, I asked…

An… unique weekend I must say to have a day separating the weekend. Well look at the bright side, there’s two Fridays (Thursday and Saturday) LOL

But still it’s a rather tooo quiet even for a working day. 😐

Maybe Bruneians no need work?
