Nur Wanita, Kuala Belait

Just when everyone (okay lah, only KB/Seria people lah…) thought that Kompleks Harapan is going to die… (as in no one will be going there anymore apart from paying installments in Baiduri, AIA Insurance’s office and.. what else again ah?), Supa Save Panaga is taking a major rebuilding project and an outlet is set up in Kompleks Harapan.

And last week when we went there to check out the Supa Save outlet and was surprised that a Thai restaurant and a dessert shop are going to open in that area! Woohooo!!!!!

So people, stop saying Belait boring okay.
(Next we’ll be having Coffee Bean and also Charcoal in Seaview there… The only thing missing is McD saja)


Anyways, we (my colleagues and I) went to check out Nur Wanita for lunch~

(All photos taken by a phone, again…..)


First impression, that place is BEAUTIFUL!
The renovation my goodness… the small details, the tiles, the walls, the settings.
It’s so pretty!


3/6 of my lunch partners today.

Really nice decors.



It’s a good thing that Vicky made a reservation for us the previous night so no disappointment caused.
For you peeps out there, Nur Wanita’s KB Branch telephone number is 334-7789 ya.

The perfect place to experience northen Thai food? We’ll see about that~

The staff brought us this “stool” thingie for us ladies to put our bags!
One bonus point to Nur Wanita!

We ordered:

11 12
Papaya Salad – $7.50
(…. in a really small dish)

To be honest, the portion in Nur Wanita is pretty small for the price we paid…

Yum Pak Boong Krob – $8.00
(Crispy Kangkung, this one must order! NYAMANNNNNNNN!!!! Thumbs up)

Tom Yum Num Sai (Seafood) – $11.00

Thai Green Curry (Chicken) – $9.00

I love this one too! Probably because it’s not really spicy but Sheepy said she had better elsewhere.
You know, taste is purely subjective.

19 17 
Tum Tim Grob – $4.00

Ummm… huge disappointment on this.
The tapioca flour coating on the chestnuts are too thick for my liking.
And the coconut milk/cream is not thick enough.
Didn’t even bother to finish this (I don’t waste food one okay)

Mango sticky rice – $6.50

Banoffee – $4.50

This one yummy also! (A teeny weeny bit too sweet only)





Washroom – Gotta love the quote


Awesome fuchsia pink door or the ladies room~





However, I have two tiny complains about this restaurant…..

#1 – A wet bowl was served to us for the tom yum soup…..

#2 – Umm……. The fork wasn’t clean properly before placed on the table.

I’m usually a very careless/ignorant person but these mistakes are too big to ignore I guess?

But overall, the dining experience was great and I’ll be going back there to try out other menu. I’m particularly curious about this “Fried Spaghetti with Salted Fish” actually… Wait till I got enough courage then try ah.

Open-mouthed smile

Picnic on National Day

Happy Birthday Brunei!

I love love love you and will continue to be a law-abiding citizen!

Anyways. 23rd of February also happens to be one of my buddies Eng’s birthday. And instead of having dinner like we always do, she opted for an irregular choice, PICNIC!

And when we all read her messages in Whatsapp, we’re all like… Thinking smile….
But boh-pien, birthday girl win.
Then you know what time we all start our picnic?

12.00 pm!

Sibeh limpeh hot okay!

Nah, some photos (stolen from Vanny) for you peeps..
(Because I’m feeling rajin today)

And… no one brought camera so these photos were all taken by ipong.

Sibeh cute lah!


We had satay, seaweed bread rolls, braised eggs, fried noodles and popia (all vegetarian), chit-chat, played ice and water and “eagle catch chicks”…. (sounds kinky I know, no where near your imagination okay). It was one fun afternoon. Will be better if there were less Indians sitting near us and staring at us every 5 seconds and grinned cheekily.

picnic3 picnic4picnic6

All huts taken so we just took a random spot under the tree and sat on flattened boxes.


One last “bonus” photo for you all…..

Macam crime scene…

Bah, wanna go take a shower now.
Till we meet again! As in, till I blog again!

(I don’t have camera with me so certainly… there will be nothing new coming up Smile with tongue out)

Incredible India: Day 4– On our way to the beautiful Goa


Seriously, if I’m going to visit India, GOA WILL BE THE MAIN REASON!

If any of you plan to go to India anytime soon, do make an effort to do some research on Goa and trust me, you’ll be amazed by how beautiful this place can be.

I forgot what time we woke up on that day already but boy oh boy, Delhi was certainly chilly! I had to wear Sheepy’s sweater along with a scarf!

Morning India~

And one more thing, the Indira Gandhi International Airport is OHSUMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!! Will come back to this later.

We flew to Goa via Kingfisher (and we saw KINGFISHER brand name everywhere when in Goa!) and the staffs were super attentive and helpful.

While queuing for our turn for the self service check-in kiosk, we got approached by 3 different ground stuffs if we needed help. Almost every passenger who walked in the airport got approached. Sibeh steady!


While waiting to drop our baggage, we kept staring and checking out this lady standing in front of us. She’s so perfect! Beautiful face, long shiny silky hair, and lean body! Aiyoooo!!!!!! God, Y U NO FAIR TO ASIANS? Indian women are all so pretty eh!

Oh, remember I said Indira Gandhi International Airport is OHSUMMMMMMM? Here’s why!

According to this, KLIA ranked #9, Incheon Airport #3 and Changi Airport #2 Best airports in the world (2011).. Those 3 I mentioned are the only one I’d been to and personally, I think Indira Gandhi Airport deserves to be in the top 5!

See this? syok or not! They don’t provide charging station, they bring charging station to you! Where you can comfortably sit down, playing with your phone while charging it! No need to fight with others, no need to takut kana stolen!

I love breakfast! So many choices and they heat it up before serve to you!

Munching my breakfast while seeing the sales person showing the DC design Innova.

The beautiful airport

Braided plant~ Sorry I sakai

And these! Sleek chaise lounge facing the runways!
Syok! We just lied down, relaxing and watching planes taking off and landing.

Look how shuang Maurina looked!

The in-flight meal. I always opted for the non-vegetarian meal and Mau will go for vegetarian meal


Shahrukh Khan! HE’S EVERYWHERE!!!!!!
I was switching between channels till I found this!

A FLYCAM! A camera mounted under the plane!
Very the sat okay!

And switch to another view when landing! I felt like a pilot instantly! Hhahahahhaha

Sorry ah, I sakai never see before. I was very excited when I could see and feel when the plane was landing!

The plane transit in Bangalore and passengers flying to Goa remained seated while the crew did the cleaning, very swiftly! Super fast!

They have a cute backpack-ish vacuum cleaner, another crew arranged the in-flight magazine and the safety card properly, very fast lah they all!

In a glimpse of eye, the plane is now ready for another batch of passengers!

Kingfisher everywhere!

Look! Mr Vijay Mallya, the Chairman of Kingfisher greeting me~

In-flight meal again! I could only eat half of the sandwich…

Hello Barney! I love you Barney! *True Story*


Finally, landed in Goa!

A short bus ride to the terminal

India's # 1 selling Scotch Whisky is named “Teacher’s”

Hhahahahhahahaa!!!! I find it amusing that someone named scotch TEACHER’S! (With the apostrophe s somemore)

Leaving the airport.

Our taxi. Kasian the taxi driver had to load my heavy luggage on to the car roof.

On our way to Palolem, which is an hour and a half from Goa airport.


Passed by a few towns

Tuk-tuks in Goa has a door for the passengers!

Seriously, the whole road trip to Palolem made us feel as if we’re on our way to Limbang. It was so Lamunin-ish!

Finally, touched down Palolem!

Us waiting at Cuba’s car while waiting for people to check us in our beach shack!


Palolem is a lot more quiet compare to other beaches in Goa. Well, we don’t party (like a wild animal) and certainly drinking is not our agenda, hence Maurina picked Palolem instead of others. Good choice I say, just to unwind and breakaway from everyday world.

Two men carrying our luggage. It’s a 3 minute walk to the beach bungalow and seriously, we tak sanggup eh! So we’re usually very generous when tipping these kind men.

I wonder what’s cooking inside the pot.

And here, one last picture of the place we stayed for 3 days!

3 memorable days~


Will compile all the awesomeness of Goa into one post.. if I;m not lazy that is….
