A walk to remember…

Note: Never expect my blog will contained a post full of mobile-phone quality photos! So just pardon the not-so-nice photos ya.

So, after our usual Sunday Mari-Kita-Masak session ending up with a bloated tummy, I suggested we take a walk around the neighborhood. But once we stepped out of my house, the weather was just so nice and windy and so we decided to make our walk a little further… all the way to OGDC, by foot!


(OGDC is like… 5 – 10 minutes drive away, and roughly 20 minutes by foot from my place)

A happy Bobby and a cropped-out Nonnie.
(Chose to put up this photo because it’s really rare that he smiles like that)

Jalan Semaun, I think… with two little girls playing badminton on the road.
Bobby said this photo looks like some Japan punya neighborhood~


Reaching the town.. with Police station on the left, and a very flat round about in the middle.


Marina Cinemaaaaaaa~
I miss watching movie in this cinema, even though some people claimed they’d seen rats and cockroaches roaming around. I wonder why it’s closed down…

The movie posters posted up used to be big painted canvas and stapled onto the display board.

Nostalgic much.

If I’m not wrong.. the last movie I watched there was The Matrix, and.. the first, was Aladdin~ A whole new worldddddddddddddddddddddddddddd~

Ahhhhh… memories.

Now, the cinema macam haunted mansion… Sigh.


Wuh! Seria Plaza! A place I would avoid on all times when I was in my secondary school days. And even until now, I would step in the building, get what I need, and get out of it in a nick of time. I don’t know, this place just creeps me out.



Right in front of Soi Heng. I need so much courage to take picture under the lamp post because there’s so many cars passing by and.. lucky for me because I was with Bobby at that time. If it’s for some other (boring and scare-this-scare-that) friends, they’ll probably shoo-ed me away and said I’m embarrassing them.


Hotel coming on the way at the construction site.


*cough* spot Brunei’s slowest bank…


G20! The gateway to the oil town! Hahahha!
Never knew that the sign is taller than me.

Again, took me plenty of breathe-in-breathe-out courage to stand there and take picture one.


Getting near to OGDC!

Padang Arena Seria – another place that brings back a lot of memories.

Walking to OGDC.

There was a (mini) toy fair (?) going on in OGDC and Bobby and I bought a few from there.


Hair clips and ribbons, 3 pcs for B$7.00.

Me : So cute! I wanna buy, can?
Bobby : Can… you got money meh?
Me : =S Oh pleaseeeeeeeeee *bambi eyes*

I left my wallet at home and had to puppy-eyed Bobby to buy for me. Got my favorite giraffe can!



Baby, your kawans escaped from the zoo!


Bobby also did some shopping.

I asked him how boys play those soldiers. He said, it’s all about formation. You place here place there, then imagine all those “ping-ping-pang-pang”, one by one die, and see which team wins in the end..

dot dot dot


Barbie doll better lah! At least can dress and undress, tie the hair, play dating dating with Ken mah.


At the playground.
I can’t even lift myself up. Die lah.

I suck in exercising. Perhaps the best one I can do is dry-swimming, shuffling mahjong tiles that is.

On our way back~

Stopped by to buy cendol and ice cream.



You see that? Double eye-lid in the process of formation what the falala!


This house has the most anemometers and wind vanes in different shapes and sizes. Airplanes, helicopters and.. I don’t know, puffer fish?

Oh. It started to drizzle and we rushed back home.

Wanted to stop by SL’s place but his car wasn’t there so I assumed he’s not at home. Ya, his house is that near to my place. Hahahhaa.

We talked about when was the last time we walked like that and the answer was, when we’re in Ho Chi Minh. The distance is more or less the same, just that the traffic in HCMC was really scary and the weather was way hotter. Unlike this one, jalan-jalan no rasa and happy happy.

Oh, I love my town.

A little bit of here and there


Umm.. this is a filler post with no topic. Just posting some photos taken few months ago that I’d been wanting to blog. You know, the whole “Sikit-sikit, lama-lama jadi bukit” thing…

Here’s my “bukit”.

Shane & 48 (my bestest friend), who came back for CNY… one week chun chun. She’s always back for CNY when I was going to celebrate mine in Sibu one.

Makan-ing in Excapade, one of her “must visit” when back in Brunei.


48, SL and a swollen pau disguised as leopard.


Here’s all of us.

After Excapade…

When in Brunei, do the Bruneian way.
Go to NBT and take photo with the decors what the falala.

P1080843 P1080845


Not sure which “area” the notice was hinting..

Alvin, is that chu?

P1080878 P1080879
Fast forward one week later when 48 and Shane were back in Brunei, for 6 hours.

Picked them up from the airport, had dinner, rest a bit and sent them back to the BIA. Can see her few minutes also gan-yen ah. I miss her and, CCM, kenapa nada email from you?!


Bobby camwhoring with Shane.

Another 6 more months to meet them again! WoohoooooOO!!!!

I have no idea how our faces turned out so pinkish in the photo. <3

Nah, to be fair. Here’s a good looking Bobby and a feipo.

Even lama-er photos. Cute souvenirs I bought from HCM.


Mask for FussyKelly because she reads Sweatlee’s blog too much and always “big wet eyes” me.

For PSL, because he always “no eye see” and “sweat” when it comes to his work.
Oops! :x I think I’m not suppose to say it.

This is for Theen, she blur one.

Chu-3. Open house at SL’s.
But we ended up taking photos in his (very empty) room I don’t know why.

Can see… old photo kan, when 48 was still around.
Oh, it was the very same day we went to BSB for Excapade and NBT.

I was still in my working attire.

Taken today!
Theen and SL accompanied me to get my glasses.

We all thought Theen looked quite good with that spectacles.
So demure and poise. Secretary what the falala.

Mine, it’s orange inside because I want it to be funkier and less serious.
Theen disagreed when I said I wanna wear it to work. Pfft~
I work with kids can, I can choose to look young also what~

Boleh tahan?

I never knew choosing the frame can be such tedious task!
Pray hard to God that I will not lose it like how I lost ….. I lost count how many glasses I’d accidentally sat on it or misplaced.

Picking it up tomorrow and gonna have a new look for the semester.

MOD Thai Food & Cafe


Note: This is not a paid-post and we did pay for the food we ordered.

It’s very rare that I review restaurant because I'm not really good in describing how yummy the food is and, I’m not even a food critic. As long as it doesn’t taste awful and the price is reasonable, I’m up for it.

Oh ya, efficiency of the restaurant is also very important.
I don’t care how freaking good the food is, but if you only serve those food like 30mins to 1 hour late, Grumpy Nonnie will kill you! Okay, probably keep making impatient sound and stare angrily at those innocent waiters/waitresses.

And for this post, I’m going to share my dining experience in MOD Thai Food & Cafe.

Located super near to the Jerudong Shell Petrol station and serves not only Thai food, but also western dishes and local food too. There’s also a MOD beauty saloon next to it and I assumed they all belong to the same owner (because of the name, obviously).

Bobby and I were feeling very generous toward our appetite and hence ordered like 3 dishes, 1 soup and of course, 2 plates of rice. Wanted to order some deserts too but most of them are “OUT OF ORDER”.





Okay, people are going to think that I’m very mean for pointing out mistakes printed in the menu again. I think I need to clarify on this, I’m not a fussy person and I don’t know why some people thinks that I love to complain. Haih, say say my own personal opinion or experience also cannot like that. I’m just impatient, that’s all.



Pandan Chicken (9 pieces), juicy and not dry like most Thai restaurant.
B$ 5.50 … or B$6.50 I cant remember


Tom Yam Coconut Soup?
Crap.. I can’t be a food blogger man! I don’t even remember the name of it!

Less spicy, oily and more fragrant.


The usual Fried Kai Lan with Oyster Sauce.


Fried Egg Salad, sweet and sour!




That much on the table only sums up to a total of B$21.50!
And look at the portion!
Much love.

And the good thing was, all dishes served within 10 minutes and I’m serious! Like, within 5 minutes we already have our soup, rice, veggies served. And the Pandan chicken and fried egg salad served like few minutes later.

I just love how efficient they are!
