Lim Teh In The Sultanate

Lim Teh In The Sultanate.

Since we are looking at Brunei, let’s visit a Chinese kopitiam in Pekan Seria, Brunei. The shop was even more authentic than the many found in Malaysian towns. .

It featured old school coffee shop chairs and real marble table-tops from the 1950s or 1960s. There was also the quintessential bored cashier or proprietor sitting behind the counter. There were no big candy jars on the counter however,

Brunei's Kuala Belait wet market is like what our Central Market used to be; except the art deco building is circular.

I met vegetable seller, Bujang, inside. Somehow, we started talking about big bikes and he said he'll go home to get his bike to show me.

It was the fairly rare Hyosung GV650 Aquila, a shiny cruiser. I remember distinctly Bujang telling me is China-made but a Google search later revealed it is a Korean product.

Stunning sunset in Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu is the sunset capital of the world. I don't mean it in the metaphorical sense as in declining.There was a spectacular or glorious sunset every day I was there.

Fb friend Jugjet Singh Randhawa of NST had his turban 'photo bombing' Low's Peak in perfect alignment. :-) Another iconic geological formation, the Donkey's Ears Twin Peaks were destroyed in the 2015 earthquake.

Jugjet. can you or anyone remember the name of the hotel in KK we stayed?

Rafting at The Kiulu River, Tuaran, Sabah

Since we are looking at Sabah hotels, I dug up some pics from a trip to KK with the NPC or the National Press Club. Don't wear red life jackets or red safety helmets in case you encounter a charging water buffalo mid stream. The dangers are not just from hidden rocks and sudden drops. I shot this from the famous wobbly suspension rope bridge high above the Kiulu River.
