Brunei Again

We passed by The Jerudong Theme Park in Brunei, which was once a great place for exciting rides but the place is quite run down nowadays. You can have the whole theme park and enjoy the rides all by yourself. No hassle of queueing up for tickets. Since nothing interesting there, we continued on our sightseeing tour somewhere else.

Saw these smart looking horses not far away from the Jerudong Theme Park. So we stopped by to kay poh for a while.

Handsome white horse. (Can we relate this white horse with the 白马王子 or White Horse Prince in the Fairy Tales?) Too bad this white horse is botak (bald) :P

All the horses here have "tattoos". This horsey's name is 514. Everyone, say Hi to Mr 514.

The little White Egret/Bangau is a common sight in Brunei. Everywhere I go, I see little egrets. Seeing the egrets reminds me of the childhood song -

"Bangau O Bangau,
Kenapa engkau kurus?
Macam mana aku tak kurus?
Ikan tak mau timbul..

Ikan O Ikan,
Kenapa engkau tak timbul?
Macam mana aku nak timbul,
Rumput panjang sangat.."

I can't remember the lyrics for the whole song. Anyone knows this song?

Our next stop is one of the several beaches in Brunei. I can't remember the name of this particular beach...

Is this a Lifeguard Tower or ??

Colourful Speedboats.

The angry and fierce looking cat. Might be someone has accidentally stepped on his tail earlier on? This cat is definitely not as gentle as Liucas. So don't play-play if u dowan to get yourself into trouble .

Seeing this somehow reminds me of "something" - pink coloured flurry and fluffy thingy. What else will u relate this with? Neh.. Point finger at Pink Cotton.

Errr.. this pink coloured fluffy stuff is some sort of kacang flower.

Remembering the good old days singing the songs :)

Syiok also leh reading the modified lyrics :D

pinky piglet,
ada Kucing tapi bukan kat Kuching ;)
out of topic, I see more dogs than cats in Kuching :P

I was few metres away from the cat, so I considered myself safe. If he wanna attack me, I can still run for my life :P

angele said...

Lol.I like the expression on the cat's face.
Looks like he's in a bad mood.Very bad mood!! =P

L B said...

waaaaa...

carmistwinanplinktitokichenjalib

sengkor said...

actuary hor, u see all the bangaus also got tatoo one..

Chen said...

angele,
moody cat..
If that is a cat with chromosome XX, we can assume the cat having PMS :P Since we assume that is a male cat, Might be he lost in a fight with the other cats earlier on (fight for food?)

LB,
mmmmm... I see there's one extra "b" in the long alphabet company carmistwinanplinktitokichenjalib, that B represents u or ?? :P

sengkor,
Too bad the bangaus scared of me :P
They run.. (okie I exaggerate)
They actually fly far far away when I go near them...
Might be they are shy of their tattoo?
hahahhaha....

Winn said...

poor 514...kena tatooed....so painful:(...

the angry cat macam pms aje..

liucas oso waiting for his period...he quite anxious leh..


hey i finished my tag!!:)

Chen said...

Winn,
Luckily Liucas tak kena tattoo-ed :P
Wonder if Winn wanna tattoo Liucas, what will be the tattoo be? :P

Yeah loh.. that confused male cat having PMS (dunno macam mana ni boleh berlaku.. memang kisah ajaib)

Liucas also waiting for his period?
Aiyoh..
Does his mummy anxious as well?
kekkekke

Wah.. U ask Liucas to do the tag for u, Clever lah u ;)
*Winn Winn instead of Wink Wink*

Red Sponge said...

OH...so many bangau..

u know? certain area in Kuching got bangau too, namely Petra Jaya.

Bernard said...

Those egrets remind me of the bangaus of Bintulu. They were the symbol of Bintulu.

mistipurple said...

tonight everybody liuliu active! must be the 18" chinese dinner liu recommended. lol!

angel said...

*catches flying kacang*
Oooops... :P

*looks at misti*
18" dinner?
Yerrrrrr!!!

_butt said...

*pengsan* due to Mr 514's megawatt wink.. LOL

Kenny Ng said...

The cat looks so funny... must be u step on it's tail :P

Chen said...

red sponge,
Woo.. I dunno about that :P
Trying to recall where is Petra Jaya
hahhaha.. okie okie..
I remember liao where is it :P

bernard,
yeap, I remember seeing lotsa bangau in Bintulu too. I went to Bintulu few times in the past to visit my sister & her family. The last time I went there was in November last year.

misti,
Hahhaa.. I guess it's effective to feast with the eyes too?

Chen said...

angel,
catch flying pistachion nuts :P
or flying Indian figs?

Misti gets pretty excited today
*point point*

butt,
Don't pengsan too long leh...
else I need to ask Mr Skunk liao to wake u up ;)

kenny,
yin wong ah..
I didn't do anything to the cat :P

Might be the cat wants a digital camera and he gets jealous (hence angry) when he sees I have one?
who knows? :P

mistipurple said...

why LB throwing kachang at our noses and not our mouths huh?

Angel, it is loctor who posted the 18" menu + other 'ahem' parts menu wan. so don't look at me liddat leh. :P *cabuts from loctor*

mistipurple said...

loctor, effective to feast with eyes also ah? *grins & pretends to be innocent 7 yr old*

Cocka Doodle said...

Pssst! Doc...didn't visit the Sultan's harem meh? I heard very keng wan...got women from all over the world wan.

Chen said...

misti,
might be to produce salted peanut as suggested by Ben earlier on in the previous post?
*no eyes see* :P

Woooi...I posted the menu only, I didn't post about the 18" thingy

*cough*
I know u r as innocent as the 5 years old gal lah..

cocka,

Wrong timing :P

See Fei said...

any good makan place in brunei? the cat looked really famished. so difficult to cari makan meh in brunei, even for cat...?

carcar said...

thanks angel for the chup! muacks muacks! haha...

hey chen you dint post up some photo for the jelutong park?

the bangau amd ikan song so funny, sing me tonight can?

Chen said...

pisang goreng,
Ooooo… I have never see petai tree before

pink cotton,
Pink Cotton loves the pink cotton :D
Good.. this shows u love yourself, which is a good sign :P

Can crop the original photo also leh for the pink cotton since the ori picture is 4 MP, kekekeke

Dunno what cat is that.. What I know is that is a fierce cat. Don’t play-play :D

seefei,
No special or good makan place there AFAIK. IMHO, Malaysia food tastes better :P

The currency exchange in Brunei is the same as in Singapore lah..
It’s not difficult to cari makan there :)
Life in fact is quite peaceful and relaxing in Brunei, unlike Singapore (too hectic).

carcar,
I see see look look there, nothing interesting… That’s why I didn’t tangkap gambar in Jelutong Park lah, my dear carcar.

U wanna the whole lyrics for the song? Butt manage to find the link for the whole lyrics. The song very cute leh.. I scared u might pengsan if u hear my singing, kakkaka…

mistipurple said...

singapore cari makan is akin to jiak kaki. opps. i'm outta here before the man in white catches up.

Chen said...

misti,
so jialak meh working in kiasu-land?
I have several ex-classmates & ex-colleagues working in Singapore :P

mistipurple said...

i think the rich gets richer, and the poor gets poorer. maybe same everywhere but the lower rung will feel very bad all the time.

Chen said...

misti,
One of my close friend cum colleague when to one of the hosp in Singapore for interview. Despite the good pay, she gives up after knowing the working hours (seems like no chance to see the sun). I guess u r facing the similar "problem" too, right? No change to say hi to the beloved Mr Sun :(

mistipurple said...

yup. even without seeing the sun, it's still hard to get things done. it's a dog eat dog world. but i think it's because we're a fledgling company.

some private GPs have to keep long hours. the hospital docs i think keep inhumane hours, especially the 'new' ones, but i do see some of the specialists having normal clocking times.

overall, to make a sweeping statement, i think people in different countries have different personalities. *wink*

mistipurple said...

eh.. somewhat disjointed sentence above about different personalities.. it just struck me many times when i encounter people from different states. so, the rather abrupt statement above. *wink*

Simple American said...

Brunei looks real pretty. I wanna be a lifeguard. That looks so comfortable.

Chen said...

misti,
the irony of life...
aiyk...

Can we consider the grass is greener on the other side?

Mmmmm about the different personalities statement..
but that was somehow true also lah
jsut as most citizens from kiasuland have different personalities from those from bolehland :P
Oopps.. I'm making sweeping statement too :P

SA,
Brunei is a quite town.
No night clubs
No pubs
No disco
and supposedly no alcohol too, but.... u know lah

mistipurple said...

yes, generally, bolehland people are indeed different from kiasuland's. *wink*
