The tour really taught me more about nature as now I tend to see the true beauty of our green planet and our not-so-clear-but-muddy river. I even know the presence of Proboscis Monkeys in certain parts of our river banks through the smell of the air. Want to learn all these?? Pay those local tour guides from the Mona Flora Fauna Agency! They're the experts and they know A LOT MORE about Brunei :)
After taking Bahri's passport from his house in Puni, we went back to Bangar Market to purchase some local goodies. We bought 4 packets of Cendols and $10 of Wajid Temburong. What's good about the Cendols are the taste and the cost. In Bandar, it could cost as much as $2.50 per packet and no better than the ones made in Temburong. In Bangar, it's just a dollar each! Blessed!! Too bad I only had a few bucks in my wallet or else I'd buy a lot more for everyone at home. Even Nurul didn't carry any cash with her!!
The journey to crossing Limbang was a long one. I couldn't help complaining about the river crossing using the ferry. I mean, it's not even wide and wouldn't take hours to cross but it cost us $4 to get to Limbang! I mean, for God's sake, build the bridge already!! I tell you, the river is NOT wide. It's as wide as two-lanes road here in Bandar!! $4 for crossing that?? Sheeshhh!!!
We dropped by a furniture store near the road to Bandar Limbang. I am planning to renovate my bedroom this December, since my vacation to Phuket and Bangkok is now cancelled huhu :( So might as well spend the money on transforming the room! I'm thinking of having wall papers and antiques as the theme of my bedroom set and furniture. It might change, we'll just see ;) And today, I had my eyes on this particular bedroom set. It's peach in colour and big. C'mon guys! I am big so yeah, I need a big bed myself *blushing* =P
Passing by the food stalls, we couldn't help laughing as the ladies tried to attract us by blowing the smoke of their barbecued chicken wings and tails with their paper fans to our car. Didn't they notice our car windows were closed?? And the food looked all ... red. We couldn't help wondering what they had added to them. Erk!!
We finally left Kuala Lurah at 5.05pm. I dropped off Edie to his place in Mata-Mata then off we went to Soon Lee Lambak. I gotta take my car that Pudin was driving there with so I could have my dine out with Sharul. I hadn't seen him for days and I missed him lots! We had our sungkai at Thai Food Restaurant at Serusup. It was nice to finally meet him :)
I got home at 9pm, after Sharul bought a pair of trousers at Veena's. He wanted me to accompany him but I was too tired to even climb off my car. Thank God he understood me. He has always had anyway :) By the way, Veena's is having discounts now people! ;)
This time, there are no pictures to feast your eyes but how I wish I had taken a few shots of the crocodiles I spotted today! It was my third ride to Temburong this month alone, not to mention a few times last month, yet I never did see any crocs in the water or on the river banks. It was embarrassing though as I screamed "Crocs!!" when others on the boat were either enjoying the good weather, daydreaming or sleeping. I bet, I had ruined their trip this time, erk!!
