Jalan2 With Uncle Muhd

Uncle Muhd came to visit us (it was actually 2 tickets bought for Uncle Muhd & Tok Ma earlier, but due to Tok Pa's condition, only Uncle Muhd came) during this school holiday. he is Abiy's youngest brother, a bright student of SMS Alam Shah. he came here on Tuesday, and will depart to KL on Saturday nite, and Abiy had some programs to 'fulfill' the visit. it was a 'quick decision' made, and at the same time, Makcik Ana went back to her kampong cuz her MIL was sick. so it were fine days for Mommy & Abiy to take leave. haha.

our First Day - Wednesday, 12th - Bintulu

breakfast dulu kat Pakcik Wan Cafe. filling our tummy (except Hafiy's) with Mi Kolok Special. yummy2~

let's start our journey with doa naik kenderaan... vrooom~~~ [with the boy yg gata* nk duk depan. duk belakang dlm carseat dia terjerit2. Mami pegang pun terjerit2. duk depan baru senyap]


i'm so happy i'm at Niah!

with Uncle Muhd in front of 'rumah panjang'.

the journey to Bintulu took 2.5hours. but we dropped by pekan Bekenu & Niah, making it a bit later. our first stop was Bintulu Port. then we ronda2 keliling Tanjung Kidurong, to the gate (gate pun jadila) of MLNG (Malaysia Liquefied Natural Gas), ABF (Asean Bintulu Fertilizer) and other oil & gas related places. enhancing our knowledge in downstream process pulok...

then we gerak to Bintulu town. it's smaller than Miri, but we could see many new developments are ongoing. should Bintulu be the next city?

place where we had our lunch, & met Auntie Sheema+Uncle Amit, Auntie Coojart & Auntie Siti.

Hafiy at Bintulu.

at Parkcity Mall.

Taman Tumbina = Taman Tumbuhan dan Binatang?

Tanjung Batu Beach

we left Bintulu at about 4 o'clock. should get back to Miri as soon as possible since it's not safe to travel by car during night time. along the way is hutan & palm estate, and the highway is nothing compared to PLUS huhu. we should avoid the risk, rite.

we dropped by Bungai Beach & Esplanade before going home. had a sunset by the shore. what a day...
it was a wonderful journey. Hafiy, you're lucky cos still a small baby. couldn't read, couldn't write or even couldn't hold things correctly, or else Mommy would ask you to make a scrapbook of 'My Visit to Bintulu'. hehe. including diagrams of oil&gas process from upstream to the downstream. hoho! *i'm gonna do this, so please, do remind me when you're big enough :D

let's call it a day....

our Second Day - Thurday, 13th - Brunei Darussalam

uh, i should say, many sorry to Kak Jazz & Baby AH's mummy. this is a very sudden decision, and i had no time to online or even SMS. next time i should make pre-arrangement, so that we can meet![and you can be my tourist guide]

ya, Brunei Darussalam is just 0.5hour from our house. so very the near, huh.

so very the near...

what's best about Brunei? hum.. i should say, that i feel like home. they use 'jawi' in every sign board, just like what we have in Kelantan. and also the cheap-cheap petrol. hehe. only B$0.53/litre! however we couldn't fill up more than B$10.00, and only at selected petrol station. huwaaa.. tak dapek la menuhkan tank dgn minyak Brunei :P and i like their headscarfs. mmg sangat cantik & matching with their bajus! hopefully i have time to shop for scarfs and kain ela Brunei....

Mommy, cepatla siap...

us at Malaysia-Brunei border

nodding donkey (onshore oil pump) at Seria. we don't have this in Malaysia, we operate only offshore platforms.

in front of BSP. Abiy comes here everymonth as a rep of Malaysian Government. cayalah!

Jerudong Park

at Brunei International Airport.

Tamu Kianggeh. ada mcm venice kn?

Kampung Air. very unique and so astonish to see more than 15k people living on water. and they have all the facilites including masjids, schools, shops, clinics, even police & fire station!

di laman Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex

sama tak?

i'm so happy i'm at Jollibee! takde kat Malaysia okeh.

at Masjid Jame Asr Hassanal Bolkiah (oh i hope my spelling is correct). the domes are coated with pure gold!

shops at Kiulap

because of the time constraint (plus the sesat2) we didn't manage to explore the whole Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) and the outskirts. however, we didn't miss the chance to shop for overseas' made chocolate at Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex. yes, overseas made chocolate only, not Shah Alam made. cheaper and halal. [but Shah Alam chocolate is cheaper in Brunei even if after conversion, why ah?]

and here we ended our 'Pencarian for High Chair & Neck Pillow'. satu Miri cari tak jumper (& to go back to KL just to find high chair sungguh tidak berbaloi), finally we bought a Singaporean made in Brunei using Malaysian bank's cc. fuh.. so very the Asean.

we love this one. semua features ada. seat bole recline, bole tinggi-rendahkan (adjust utk paras meja or paras lantai), ada roda, tray ada 2 lapis & bole remove, kusyen PVC senang basuh, ada bakul, tempat kaki bole angkat & the set ni bole dilipat. priced $B160.00. [conversion B$1.00=RM2.30]

oh i'm sooooo happy! thanks Abiy Mommy!

yeay yeay. i got my high chair!

and this cute neck pillow. we'd been searching everywhere including at online but still cudn't find any. finally we found this one in Brunei. only B$10.90.

now i don't have to sakit2 leher sleeping in my carseat. thanks Abiy Mommy!

so, when is our next trip? ;D this Gawai? driving to KK, perhaps ;P

alhamdulillah... jauh berjalan luas pandangan (even if tak jauh mana poooon~). & that's what recommended in Islam as well. berjalan di mukabumi, merenungi, menikmati & mensyukuri kebesaran Allah SWT.
