Family time in Brunei!

Hey pretty ladies and handsome guys sekalian..

How are guys doing? I'm just having usual routine on Sunday. Being lazy on the couch watching Glee-athon. By the way, I'm still in Brunei. Last 2 weeks, husband and Emir came by here to visit me. It was not a surprise anymore since hubby already informed me before hand. So awal2 lagi I dah arrange transport to pick him up at Miri airport. Why Miri and not going to Brunei straight if you were to ask. It's because Miri is more nearer to my place (Seria) than Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB). It takes almost 1-1/2 hours driving from BSB to Seria but less than an hour from Miri to Seria. Kenapa nak waste time kan??!

We spent one night in Miri, before drove back to Seria the next morning. We rented a car from Miri because it's a bit cheaper compared to Brunei. Tak banyak beza sangat pon & downside of renting car with Malaysia's plate number is susah sangat nak cari petrol station yang boleh refuel & accept kereta yang hold Malaysia's plate number. Let say if dalam five petrol station in Seria, maybe one of them jer accept kereta berplate number Malaysia. The petrol price pon a bit different compared to car holding Brunei's plate number but still a way cheaper than harga minyak dekat Malaysia la. Petrol price for Brunei's car is around BND 0.30/liter (MYR 0.70/liter) but for Malaysia's car yang nak refuel dekat Brunei, we have to pay BND 0.80/liter (MYR 1.95/liter). Until now I totally can't comprehend why harga minyak dekat Malaysia mencanak2 naik padahal harga minyak dekat Brunei still very low. Okay, I don't want to discuss about petrol price now. Next!

Hubby & Emir spent almost a week with me in Brunei. Takdelah pergi mana sangat pon since I have to work during weekday. Boring kan?! but I have to save my days off for Hari Raya and other important occasions. Ada lah one day tu I balik awal sikit because we wanted to bring Emir to Jerudung Park. Jerudung Park buka pukul 5 petang. I worked half day and after lunch kami gerak to Jerudung. Jerudung is quite far from Seria and it took more than 1 hour to reach there.

We first pay a visit to an Equestrian Park closed by Jerudung Park. We arrived just on time, since it was feeding time. So dapat la tengok kuda tengah makan..Not only that, kuda2 tu tanpa segan silu poo poo & pee pee jugak. Hehe. Emir loves animal so much!! His top on the list still a cat & by now he can recognize more than 10 animals/insects which explain kenapa banyak sangat games/flash card apps dalam iPhone aku yang berdasarkan animal.

Emir sangat excited dapat lari2 dekat padang yang sangat luas ni. I had to stop him few times and nak bagi dia minum air because of cuaca yang tak begitu friendly that evening..Panas sangat! Dehydrated anak aku..

Emir gives his best smile

Ayah dipakse naik bersama Emir sebab ibu Emir yang perasan puteri lilin ni tak tahan to stay under the sun. It seems like ayah have fun riding this ride more than Emir.

I have to admit that I actually feel a bit disappointed with Jerudung Park. The park itself really not as what I expected it would be. Not even closed. Masa aku kecik, I always heard people saying that Jerudung Park is one of the place person should visit in Brunei. Some even says, Jerudung Park is more fun and thrill compared to Sunway Lagoon..Oh come on! It is not even the same..Taman Tasik Titiwangsa lagi baguih kot..It maybe used to be one of the best attraction in Brunei. With very poor maintenance, I don't think they can survive any longer. To the extend aku takut nak bagi Emir main dekat playground dekat situ because slide dia pon macam hampir patah..There's a lot of cracks and chip edges around the playground. Totally not safe for children. Masa kami pergi pon tak ramai orang sangat. According to one of the worker yang kami jumpa dekat situ, dia cakap even during school holiday pon tak ramai visitors datang. I think management team should think of something to improve this park..maybe revamp the new rides which can attract teenagers and adults to come and play..Sebab most of the rides yang ada is only for kids below 12 years old..duhh someone tell me now how on earth this park can beat Sunway Lagoon..

For this little guy, he seems to enjoy his day in Jerudung Park despite the hot sunny day. Nanti Ibu bawak Emir pergi Sunway Lagoon okay..Lagi best!
