sorry for the long hiatus.. been busy and lazy..
*winkwink* ok let's do this..
let the pictures (mostly on food) tells you about my trip to Brunei..
when we arrived at the Jetty in Muara, we were 'received' by my grand-uncle (grandma's brother) and his daughter, so they brought us to have some lil-makan as alas perut. so this aunty said we shall go for 'kon lo mee' on the way home.. we said ok.. and we head off.. so she drove us to this housing area, where there was only one row of houses, big houses.. we were like wondering.. why are we going to this place.. and she said.. 'oh..here is where we going to have our kon lo mee, in the house.. ' chrisina and i were, 'HUH?!?!'
We arrived.. we were amazed, the house is huge lor.. the owner renovate the house in such that half is 'business center' half is home for them. his maids become his shop assistants.. haha..have a look at the house.. is big lor.. and summore.. HE OWNS A MERZ ler.. aduh.. SEE??? Sell Kon LO Mee in BRunei also can earn a Merz.. hahaha
so we went in.. we ate the mee..which is not bad.. one bowl for B$1.80.. got lotz of pork dishes lor.. but we were just too full.. we din really eat.. hehe.. dun convert.. convert ada mahal sikit.. but the owner is basically smart!!
then the next day, we went to this Le Apple, owns by my Grand-uncle's son. we went there to arrange for some cakes to give away during my grandma's 80th birthday in june. besides giving away the invitation cards, tat was also one of our purpose to brunei. the bakers and those who decorated the cakes are really good, really enjoyed looking at the finished decorated cakes. wanted to take more pictures..but macam not nice.. so i 'control' haha..
the cake testing session was wonderful, enjoyed every bit of it.. and the fellowship around the table.
THEN... AT LAST.. we went to ESCAPADE!!.. tat is the place i make sure i will visit whenever i'm in brunei.. too bad both my aunties dun really enjoy japanese food.. so.. we din order much.. but i enjoyed it soooooooo much. haha..
you can tell the places we went for food..
some home cook meals i din take lar.. pai seh ba.. hehe
then i wan to introduce this boy to you..
oh no.. i din get his full name.. but he is ADEK!!!!
haha.. bcoz he is the 2nd son of my cousin, O-Koi.. my aunt's grandson
he is just sooo cute.. but very stubborn one.. haha
he is also our navigator when we drove around brunei..
he is only 5 this year.. and he KNOWS the way.. haha
dun play play.. !!!
of coz he doesnt really know the road name..so we have to say.. 'remember the place we used to cut our hair??' 'remember the chinese restaurant where you like the kon lo mee?' etc.. haha..
then he said 'ya' and he led the way..
he refused to talk to chris and me.. no matter how hard we tried.. he only talked to his father and grandmother.. even we played with him, he laughed with us, but he just DUN WAN TO TALK TO US.. pengsan... tat's y i said he is stubborn.. haha
but.. he is such a cute boy.. hehe..
