If you follow me, or any of us in twitter (which you totally should if you have not! Click here), you’ll know that yesterday was GB (Girly bloggers) very first road trip down to Belait. One word, SUPER FUN! Okay, make that two.
I’m going to break the trip into several posts… so that I have more posts to blog about instead of one lengthy one. *marketing skill wtf*
So, imma start with… How to fill up your car at the petrol station!
Roxana Shell Service Station, or “Roxette” for Tina, is the very first self-service petrol station in Brunei. I do know that there’s a lot of people who don’t go there anymore because of the “self-service” part. For me, honestly, I kind of enjoy doing it myself… (rather than daydreaming and getting all impatient in the car). Some drives all the way to KB just to get diesel (because the other petrol station in Seria tak ada diesel) !
Atul wanted to fill petrol for her car and I asked if she wanted to do it herself and she replied me a BIG YES!
So this is what you do.
1. Off your car engine. Hahahhahahhahahhaa. Okay, lame. I’ll be serious this time.
Here’s the steps that you don’t even need to remember actually.
1. Walk into the shop.
2. Queue up and when it’s your turn, tell the shop attendant your station number, type of gas and amount you want to fill. Pay upfront. No, you can’t use your credit card on the fuel pumps to pay. They do it at the counter.
3. Then open the fuel cap.
4. Lift the pump handle and insert the nozzle into the fuel cap, pull the lever until the fuel begins to flow. Keep an eye on the counter display which will increase as the fuel enters your vehicle in both price and volume.
5. Remove nozzle when done, close the fuel cap.
Ta Da! You’re done!
It’s not complicated at all, kan?
