What Anak Brunei Do In Miri

After a week of procrastinating and spending my sweet time with Sony and Astro, here I am back into action once again. A day before my 10days school break start, I SKIPPED school to go Miri.

Cross my fingers that no any discipline actions would be taken on me! =D

Miri is one neighboring place to Brunei. Because of the higher exchange rate of BND to RM, people in Brunei just go there anytime they want.

Other than that, it is the cheaper bargains and varieties of choices which we can get there. Shopping will be one of the must do thing in Miri.

Of course there are also people go there for enjoying, relaxing, clubbing, catching air-plane, sea-foods, fast-foods, seeing doctors, looking for car spare parts and a lot lot more. And also don't forget to mention...

THE STARBUCKS COFFEE!!!

Here is where a lot of Chinese Brunei like to go and the very first place to go in Miri.

DSC08696
"CAFE 2020" A popular spot for people to have breakfast which they serve lots of foods like Kolomee, Porridge, Bak-Kut-Teh, Fried Mee and a lot more that also includes DIM SUM.

Siew Mai

Another type of Siew Mai

Har Kau

Dumplings, Sui Kiao

DSC08695
They also serve Kuih too.

DSC08684
Every time I go there the place is always full house that it is pack with customers. People bringing their families for breakfast, couples having breakfast, people having breakfast before going to work, Chinese Brunei having breakfast before going to shop and etc.

Other than varieties choices of products to buy, the foods in Miri also comes in a lot of choices to eat. A lot of delicious foods come from the hawker center that the owners/ boss have their own secret recipe in cooking the signboard dishes.

Kolomee is one of the local's favorite that everywhere in Brunei also sell Kolomee. It may look easy to be cook but there are a few skills to cook one delicious bowl of Kolomee. The ingredients that is important, the quality of the noodles, the timing of the noodles to be cooked, the seasoned oil and etc.

DSC08731
Fook Hai Food Centre, a place that sell completely a different Kolomee comparing to the Kolomee we have in Brunei.

DSC08740
Ever heard or seen "Red Kolomee" in Brunei? Of course not the noodles that is mix with chili or tomato sauce. That's the "Red Kolomee" that is mixed with the Char Siew's oil.

Imagine a bowl of yummilicious Kolomee with a plate of Siew Mai... Awww~ *Saliva Dripping*

Kuching Siew Mai also available for order in Fook Hai Food Centre.

Above is the must do and must go place for the Chinese Brunei. And here's what must do and must go for the majority of the Bruneians which are the FAST-FOODS!!!

Didn't have the chance to try KFC, McD, PizzaHut during that time.

DSC08712
Instead of all above, I tried MarryBrown!
It is one fast-food restaurants that is founded in Malaysia in 1981 and the foods serve are certified HALAL. It is one proud thing for the Malaysia to have fast-foods chain that serves around nation wides that MarryBrown has reached over 250 outlets around.

DSC08714
DSC08728
With the fresh, bright and contemporary looks of the restaurants, it creates one nice and relaxing atmosphere for the customers to dine in.

DSC08718
The foods are nice that they really meets the high quality and standard. If I wasn't told that MarryBrown is founded in Malaysia, I would think it is one fast-foods restaurant that is introduced in USA or Europe just like KFC or McD. The fries doesn't taste like normal fries where we can have it in normal restaurants or the fries that we fry ourselves.

DSC08716
The fried-chickens is juicy and the meats are tender. Just the first bite on the fried-chicken, it just brings back the feels of the old time. It is just like the kids that are so happy when eating the big, tasty and juicy drumstick.

Having fries and fried chicken aren't enough in fast-foods, it is not satisfying without these...

DSC08722
The Burger. MarryBrown has their newest burger menu which is the HOT TOUCH TOWER BURGER!

DSC08724
It is the burger that is prepared with veggie, mayonnaise, the upper part of the meat is the processed chicken burger meat and the bottom layer is the fresh chicken meat. And cheese is put in between the two burger meats! Definitely a burger that is a must order in MarryBrown!

DSC08726
"Something Different" is the slogan of MarryBrown. It is really something different comparing to the local fast-foods restaurants that we have in Brunei or in Malaysia. They did great efforts in the marketing which MarryBrown also uses ambassador to promote it.

DSC075391
Just like KFC that has Colonel Sanders, McD has Ronald McDonald. MarryBrown did something different.

DSC08719
MarryBrown uses one of the Malaysia's Icon which is MAWI as its ambassador. What if one day when Mawi got old, then MarryBrown would have "Colonel Mawi"!

.

MALAYSIA MINISTER/RESIGN
Since using Malaysia's Icon, why not use Datuk Chua Soi Lek? I'm sure Datuk Chua has more influence power than Mawi! :)

Here's a question. What do you always do when you're in Miri? Share it @ the comment box.
