So what memory comes into your mind when u listen to All night long? Or any other song for that matter
Hi guys. Sorry for thd lack of updates. I'm just so not in da mood lately. Anyways, im bored out of my brain today. Everyone is away and am on my own jaga kadai. Hence am posting on my phone again just to entertain myself. Owh had the bird flu innoculation yesterday. Luckily inda jahat rasa unlike some of my colleagues who got the shot as well. Anyway, saw this cloud formation through my office window. Interesting eh. Correct me if im wrong but i think theyre called Cirrus type cloud.

Hello peeps.. I'm back... Ys yes I know.. I've been back for a little while now.. tapi tekeduhung cuti atu.. tarus tah ku cutikan jua my blog updating ani.. tapi inda jua nyaman rasanya meniggalkan atu. But doesnt matter, I'm back now. Phuhh that Bali trip was one hot trip. Hot as in the weather! Gosh u would not believe how hot it was. It was so hot that it made walking under the Brunei sun as if taking a stroll through Central park. Not that I've strolled through in central park. Hyde park lah!! heheh Banar it was so so panas brabis. Inda ku merati how it could be so hot like that. banyak dusa kali ah.. hehe Strangely though before I went off, no one, not a single person ever mentioned the weather is like that in Bali (MJ said she did). Maybe perhaps they went during cooler period kali ah.. The locals said it would cool down alittle from jun to august. My mate decided its because Bali is an island. Maybe so but I dont remember Labuan being that hot. Sampai malam pun ku kepanasan. Throughout my stay, I suffered from headache everyday and dehydration. My lips pun be ulcer. Dahsyat jua sudah tu. Was advised to take gatorade to counteract the effect. AndI had to shower like 4 times in a day. Inda jua nyaman rasanya badan rakat2 atu. Maybe sebab atu lah those tourist prefer not to wear baju even when walking around town. Mun kediaku.. alum plang lagi.. indaconfident che Almaklum lah.. I'm still waiting for the other 5 packs to make an appearance heheh So i was there only for about 4 days includingtravelling days. Stayed in Kuta all the while. I didnt do anything apart from minum2 makan and jalan2 meliat kadai. Lepak2 d starbux and cafes. Went to the beach. Not bad jualah shopping2 d sana atu.. sale lagi. Didnt know ada kadai basar sana ah.. ada marks and sparks ada sogo and other chain stores ani lah.. baik lagi shopping disini ni sungguh bandar damit. Malam2 inda plang keluar coz ampar from the day outing.
My mate tried out the spa.. urut-urutan. Quite good apparently. I didnt coz i can never tahan beurut ani. Another something I've always been told was the difficulty in finding halal food. But I thought this was not the case. I was eating all the time. The fastfood was also halal. I tried the A&W and krispy Kreme and baskin robins others which i didnt have a go was McDonald's, KFC, Pizza hut. We tried some local joints one of which was a Sundanese restaurant, where I had Flying Gurami (deep fried fish) Which was very the nyaman and crispy. I also had Nasi Timbel there. I had these two propr to this but cant remember how good they tasted. I also went to a Javanese restaurant called Plengkung restaurant where their speciality is Pleceng kangkung. They shortened this to plengkung. I tell you, Indons are number 1 inmaking up words. Anyway, pleceng kangkung I was told is one of their speciality dish, the kangkung boiled and sambal made of kacang, lada and stuff spread on it. I myself is not a kangkung guy but it was nice. Of course there are other dishes as well. Fabulous atmosphere and a good place to chill and relax with a band singing in the corner belting all these great 70-80s tunes. Oh and its pretty cheap too. I also had a chance to tryout padang style food. Went to this Warung padang for lunch. OK lah the food, not too bad. But I can see why this sort of serving style will not go very well for us in Brunei.
While I was there, I also tried local drinks. One is Sodagembira (apparently d brunei pun ada) and the other is the botol. Apparently there is a saying in indonesia.. makan apa aja, minumnya teh botol sosro. Seems abit strange drinking tea together with rice..tapinya thinking about it... I usually have ice lemon tea.. sama jua kali ah.
Taxis are verywhere. The best ones I guess are those blue taxis. Sekali mengampaikan punggung rp5000 and then rp1000 or so ver mile or something. Since I didnt venture out of Kuta area obviously I cannot comment on other areas. Beach was bisasa sahaja. Peliatan kubisai lagi pantai muara. Then again I only saw the beach in Kuta. OK lah the wave was bigger here I giv them that. Tapi pasal lawa I think ours is better.. ganya problemnya kamah, mun inda hands down. OK lah dulu.. ngalih ku becerita menaip ani.. I've aprepard a slide show below so just look at the photos. They tell better stories than I can.. ciao

Top pic is of the Ministry of Development building. Cool building eh. Amongst the exhibitions was this model of one of the house going to be offered as part of the Brunei government housing scheme. I think there were 9 house types models were on display. And this particular one, which I think is the nicest will be offered only to those who applied for housing scheme in the Belait district. For those who had applied for housing scheme in Brunei Muara district, you will be offered different designes. One funny fact on this type design. If you notice the balcony at the front of this house, there is no excess door. And it is not a mistake. Apparently, that is how the house was designed. Funny eh. heheh indapalah Tabuk ada. Meluah dari tabuk saja. kekek Overall I think the design of the houses are nice. (banar jua.. the existing design has been there for ages... we need a chang man) And all of them are 2 tingkat. Saves money as there is no need to fork out money to put up an extension. tapinya.. jan jua.. ia jua tu karang menambah samapi besayap2.
Later in the afternoon. My uncles+aunties and I went to have tea. Brunei style. Di Brunei ani.. when sombody says tea.. inda semestinya.. cake and tea. The menu may well be very similar to lunch. Which was the case yesterday. We had Soto for tea!! Full of lamak and oil. sluurpp! nyaman eh. heheh
Past couple of weeks my paents had introduced to us this restaurant. Its actually a house, tapi the living room on the ground floor has been converted to a restaurant. Nya untie H, ramai urang slalu. And the location is just adjacent to governement office buildings d airport lama. Kg. Burung Pingai. So those of you, siapa-siapa yang tais liur and would like to give it a try. Its the first house on the right Jalan surapit, Kg Burung pingai. Ad gambar di bawah ani.. ok Go on.. give it a try. You wont regret it. in fact you might, coz you'll get addicted to it and have to have it all the time. heheh
I had soto bergedil mata lembu with lots and lots of daging. They also offer other vaieties of soto, from the usual soto speacial to ati buyah.
In he evening aku ke DQ. Mbali green tea with chocolate. Nyaman jua lah. Aku suka green tea icream ani. Although it doesnt taste as good as those orginal green tea icecream. Tekanang pulang ku kan green tea icecream I had di baskin robins di Tokyo. That was my first time ever merasai green tea icecream and it was the very the nyaman.
Bah ok lah dulu.. kan jalan lagi ni.. meredah jalan2 yang full of kerita di gadong ah.. all this ice-cream talk makes me tais liur kan icecream swensen.
