Went to the waterfront area with the Monument to His Majesty's 60th birthday. A gift from the people. I still dont like it. It doesnt do anything for me..would have been better if it was something more solid..more traditional. As it is, its kinda weird. But i love what they did to the environment of the waterfront area. Its so nice. Wish they could extend it throught the whole waterfront.

Took these pics there. Spent a good hour just pointing our cameras up and down the place. I didnt get much pics of the actual 'monument' thingy tho..nothing much to take there. Looks empty...not solid. Bad for pictures.

The water taxis did good business that day..lots of people travelling up and down the river. Up and down the boats. Good for photogs hoping to get good pictures. Love that.

Keayuan Wajah Anak Kecil

This cutie was among a group of children hanging out by the cemetary in Batu satu. Violet loves taking pics of children. They were with some adults tho and they dont seem to mind having their picture taken. Thats the thing with Bruneians...If i were to take the pic, they would all scowl or hide their faces or show their annoyance. But if a beautiful young woman (which Violet is) were to take their pic, they would smile and pose and be happy about it. Even the men!!! I dont get it!

Taken by Violet. She thinks its cute. What do you think?

SOAS mosque again!!

The SOAS mosque taken from the old Edinburgh Bridge.

I was sitting on the bridge on Friday waiting and waiting for a water taxi to pass by in the foreground but would you believe it, for ten whole minutes, not a single water taxi passed by. Then just after i left, a whole fleet of them went by. Aiya! Would have been nice to have a water taxi in the foreground.

Enlarge the pic and see it closely. See if you can notice whats missing from the picture. I had to take out something just to make the mosque stand out that little bit more.

These are ankle bracelets usually worn during wedding ceremonies. Gold usually. Malay ceremonies usually involve gold. And design influences closely resembling indian wedding ceremonies.

Violet caught this during a niece's wedding some time back.


Hmmm... Violet's interpretation of "sunyi" or emptiness (?).

Pics were taken of the overhead bridge in Gadong. Lots of cars (and pedestrians) passing below but not a single soul using the bridge.

Our trees

Heh its been a long time. Both Violet and Me have been busy doing our own thing and going our own ways. Neglected this site. But now we're back and hopefully we can continue what we set out to do when we started this of our beautiful Brunei.

Our rainforest or in this case jungle-est. Beautiful from up a hill. All green (grey lah in this case) and the trees so proud. I can tell you that from where was, the air is oh so fresh.
