brunei 17

Make new friends
But keep the old
One is sliver and the other gold !

It has been a long time whent I last met this group of friends, though there were a lot more friends that I missed to meet up during this trip, as most of them have their own families and works to take care :)

We had a small gathering at SH coffee shop, chit chat-gossip-lot of things to catch up, hahahah. At around 6.15pm we set off to OGDC to see if we can catch sunset at the beach. Yeah, we got a beautiful sunset.

Life in Brunei - Relax + some excitement

brunei 01

Brunei is a country located on the north coast of the island of Borneo, in Southeast Asia. The total population of Brunei Darussalam is about 400,000 of which around 130,000(satistic taken from wikipedia) live in the capital Bandar Seri Begawan. Other major towns are the port town of Muara, the oil producing town of Seria and its neighboring town, Kuala Belait.

I was staying in Seria, during my 2 weeks stay. Seria is the heart of the oil industry in Brunei, and also the site of the first commercial onshore oilfield discovered in Brunei. The town sits atop the Seria Field, which was discovered in 1929. There are numerous 'nodding donkeys' in and around the town and this has become the unofficial symbol of the town.

On 14 May afternoon, we went for a walk at Sungai Liang Forest Reserve. Following easy nature trek in the forest reserve to see the various plants of the tropical rain forest. During the trek, we saw the sky was getting darker and we decided to end the forest adventure earlier as not to be caught in the rain.

On the way back to Seria, I suggested to visit Lumut Beach. What a Surprise!!! We saw 2 water tornado while we reached the beach. The 'tornado' only appeared for less than 10 minutes. I was able to grab a few shots of the rare scene...

Life in MY - Kuala Selangor

kuala selangor 01

Kuala Selangor is a quiet town at the river mouth of the Selangor river. The city center is near the new bridge. Near the mosque there are also a lot of shops, but the old shops are favourite. Specially to the Malaysians, who come here every weekend from Kuala Lumpur to see the picturesque lighthouse, Silverleaf Monkeys and the fireflies.

We saw a large group of Silverleaf Monkeys at the lighthouse on "Bukit Melawati". This hill is also near the old center of Kuala Selangor, near the new bridge. In the weekend you can take a train ride to the lighthouse.

I spend this memorable 3 days and 3 nights stay in Kuala Selangor with lots of adventure stories. The story even started from Malaysia custom... like 'male' id, road gangster... ... 'black out' in the last night of our stay... ... hahaha for those who was in the picture will know what had happened. Also I had the opportunities to document the big day of Sheryl & Zhang Wei, stay tune.
