The Island of Duty-Free

In Brunei, everywhere we go. Every Kampong we enter and every Simpang we pass by, the words "KEDAI RUNCIT" is what we always see! Almost everywhere there are kedai runcit for everyone convenience that people don't have to travel up far to shopping complex or supermarket to buy satu gantang of bawang merah! hahaha.

And so coincidence that this things run out of stock at the middle of the night and shops in Brunei closed at around 9:30 - 10:00PM. No worries because Kedai Runcits open till late night and there is no embarrassment while paying at the counter. ;p

While traveling in Labuan, instead of kedai runcit that provides convenient services. DUTY-FREE SHOPs are the one! By the time we got out from the port, Duty-Free shops right in front of it.

These two are the Duty-Free Shops that we can see right after we get out from the Labuan Port main entrance.

Duty-Free mean tax free that there aren't tax charges which mean things are more CHEAPER!!! And duty-free shops don't sell cheap Coca-Cola. They sell MABUK-KOLA!!!

Jack Daniels! They all offer wide ranges of choices for the customer. Kuala Lurah is like kedai runcit of alcohol and Labuan is the shopping complex of alcohol!

All these are what we can find at Labuan. Before this trip, all I heard from people is that Labuan got nothing to see and no where to go. It is one small town! From what I had experienced, it's one small town that it does offer things which we don't see in Brunei too! For the least Labuan does have SUPER KICK-ASS BIG SIZE LOLLIPOPS!
