What We See & Don't in Brunei

Remember the funny Heineken beer walk-in fridge advertisement where everyone is yelling "Aaahhhh" for it? Click @ the "link" to watch the video if you haven't watch it.

That is what we don't see in Brunei.

And here is what we see in Brunei...

Agriculture & Agrifood Expo '09

It was at age like this since I last had school visit.

Aww~ it is nice to be young!

It had been a while that I didn't join school visit. It is either I was "missing in action" when school had one for us or I can't join because I had quit school for one and the half year. It is nice to go back to school study again. First of all, life is no more like sailing in the middle of nowhere without knowing which direction to head. Then there are tons of HOLIDAYS compare to working. And these time, no more missing in action for school visits.

Brunei Darussalam, a country that I lived in and a country that is still developing. There are lots to do and learn. Almost everything in Brunei are import from other countries. We does not produce anything other than oil and gas. Even the foods are import too. One day if there is world food crisis or anything happen. There aren't anyone want to sell their foods to us. What can we do by then?

These made the country want to reach self-sufficiency in food production where there aren't any more worries about foods in the future time for the people in Brunei.

A lot of preparations and things had done to promote agriculture which encourage people to plant and grow foods. It is one event that it shows the development of the country's Agriculture & AgriFood sector needs to be shifted with new approaches in view of its importance to the national economy.

In time coming, we export instead of import.

Even though one day that the oil is running out,
the people don't have to worry that there are not any income for the country.

It is one big expo that everyone is putting into it to make it one successful event. It is the first time to see one nice beautiful park that Brunei had.



The landscape of the park is really nice and relaxing that we can see GREEN everywhere and all sort of colors beautifying the place.


They plant various species of flowers around it. They did not planted it in small area where we need to approach it in order to see it. They have it all in big area which we can see the colors from far and they even have some species flowers planted along the pathways.

It feels like Bae Yong Jun & Choo Ji-Woo hand in hand walking around the park. It does gives the romantic feeling that everyone see from the Korean or Japanese drama and would like to travel and enjoy the scenery around.

It is not only beautify by the flowers but also by the vegetables and fruit trees too. For me, vegetables are just simple crops that majority are in green color and have lots of leaves that people plant for foods but not for beautifying the landscapes.

I was wrong again all these time. After a walk around the park, vegetables can be that beautiful too!

Kang Kung


Bayam Hijau & Bayam Merah. There are other crops planted like corn, yam, lady finger, pineapple and etc.

Agriculture is not only about plants, crops, fruits or flowers only but also animals too. They also rear various kind of animals around the park making it more lively.


Young Goat and this species is known as "Anglo-Nubian". They have chickens, cows and other like Burung Emu & Rhea.

Inside the camp, there are booths prepared for people to expo and sells their products. Other from the vendors, the Brunei Agriculture Department also exhibits all their departments inside showing the tools & equipments to handle the animals, the samples of rices, plants, pests, soils, the foods after processed and etc.

Examples of EGGS!

It is not the egg of dinosaur that I'm holding. It is the egg of ostrich.

The vendors exhibits the fruits and crops that they plant.

Langsat Fruit

Manggis Fruit

Rambutan Fruit



Right outside the exhibition camp, there are local foods selling.

Cucur Pisang & Cucur Udang

Popiah & Begedil

Kueh Malaya & Cakoi

Kacang dengan lada & pusu

Fries, these are not local. It is only locally cooked!

A walk around the park, we can see super gigantic man-made crops. Didn't get my chance to take picture with it.

That's because I'm busy carrying

Definitely a place that everyone would love to visit. From a small seed that planted and grow into one beautiful and magnificent park like these. Natural is really miracle. There is still chance for everyone to visit the expo @ Kampong Tungku and it will end on 30th November 2009.

Mr. Andy!!! Always come to time like this, the MAN always will have headaches. Headache in thinking how to give surprises, where is the right place to celebrate, what gift to get? Everything to make the one to have one "Happy Birthday". It is not only the MAN but to everyone out there too. We always worry that what we done is not enough!

Birthday Cake
No matter how simple it is that we prepare, the other half can feel it. It is because it is all an effort from us ourselves. Even a birthday cake will do or a sms wishing and telling them how great and important they are. Who doesn't like to be love!

The man that day did more than just birthday cake :) the above cake was bought by Andy to Jes.

Of course friends that you had known for more than 10years also doesn't want to miss the chance to celebrate with you!

Don't you agree, joshua???

Few days before the actual day was the lunar birthday of Jes that we all spent the sweet time at cheezbox, the mall.

Two days before the actual day, it was one enjoyable dinner that Jes had with Andy in Excapade Sushi, Regent Square.

A day before the actual day, it was one nice breakfast that we all had DimSum in Orchid Garden Hotel!


Chinese Fritters

Steamed Chicken

Minced Meat topped with Mushroom

Cheong Fun

Yee Mai

Then in the late afternoon, went to relax in Coffe-bean, Bandar Branch.

Then on the actual day, classmates and also friends of Jes decided to give her a treat in Millennium Restaurant for lunch and also birthday cake surprise! Later on that night, you had dinner with your family!

Right after dinner, we spent the rest of your 22nd birthday in Gripps, Kiulap along together with Andy, Wee, Hwa & Me.

Before the celebration came to an end, we went to Him Nam Foong, Menglait to have supper. When it comes to Him Nam Foong, its signboard menus are...
