the day before

Today started off with the noisy city coming to life early… and when the sun shine on my face, it was time to get up. After mucking about for abit finally got out of the hotel to see this

Smokes coming out of Maybank HQ, in Jalan Tun Perak. I was wondering why people were taking photos and pointing upwards when I was looking down at the streets from my window. Hmm.. the building was behind where my window was facing. Only when I went downstairs and looked up did I know what was going on. So, I too took a shot at it =D

It was only a drill. The people inside were at mamak driking coffee. =)

So after all the excitement early morning. We went down to Petaling street. People were just starting their day.

We actually wanted to eat some dim sum. But the famous dim sum shop was not open. So we went into the back alley, to Jalan Mardas and ate some yong tou fu and chee chiong fun.

After walking about in Mid Valley for a while decided to go makan lunch. We went to OHSushi. I have the some what entrance pic on my phone. Have not transfer it,maybe when I get back to home town. Probably because it was lunch time the place was packed. And we had to wait about 20 mins before we got our table.

After that we left to go back to our hotel by KTM train and monorail.

train.. choo chooo!!!Back at the hotel, showered a bit then left for Sungei Wang area.. by foot! And because my sister was late I went off to Low Yatt Plaza to look for some stuff for a friend, and ended up getting myself some memory upgrades! Pics already taken, but I think will post some other time.

I was looking for the ATM and I called a friend where was the closest one, as it turns out he was also in Low Yatt Plaza. What a coincidence. He was there to buy power supply units for his office.

Hi Raywalking back via jalan alurWell that is it for now. Need to rest, the stupid 3g connection have delayed me posting and sleeping an hour earlier! I need to wake up early tomorrow!

Escalators and Japanese Food in Brunei

Yesterday I took a road trip down to Brunei wth Irene, Cynthina, Roland and Daniel. Was suppose to go last trip but, I kinda forgot to bring my passport.

I was glad i made the trip. Thanks to Roland for driving us up. And keeping us safe~

After entering the border, we headed to Empire Hotel & Country Club for a looksie.

It was really big and really grand hotel. Here are some pics I took with my Nikon d300.

Marble Floor

View from the escalator. I think the glass wall is about 4 story high.

You have to take 3 escalators to reach the ground floor. >.<”

Riding the escalator~

Chairs without tables… hmm..

Me under the golden escalator~

Curved balconies in the building.

Guess what !

One of the suit buildings to the left of the lobby building~ very very nice from the outside.. I wonder how is it on the inside.. mmm

Roofing from one of the buildings near the beach.. nice honeycomb design..

Wouldnt you like to be like her… relaxing in a 5 star hotel by the pool side? Reading your fav book?

Or like him? enjoying a leasure swim in the pool on a hot day?

The other block of rooms to the right of the lobby.

View facing the blue seas… mmm… nice and relaxing ?

After mucking about for a bit, we went off from the hotel and went down to Gadong. Of course how can we leave without taking a group photo ?

Image taken from Irene’s FB account :) I think I’m loosing my neck…

After a short drive we arrived at Gadong. The last time I was there was probably two years ago. I did not know there was a super famous Japanese restaurant there called Excapade Sushi. I have been hearing about it for a while now. Only till yesterday was able to experience and understand what was the fuss all about.

Here are some shots, shot under AWB with my trusty Nikkor 17-55mm f2.8 lens.

I have no idea what was this…

beans…

Chicken… delicious ..

mmm~ salmon sushi… the picture does not do the dish justice!

Tuna Sushi~ slurp!!

Crazy ass party plate… $B50.00! Well worth the money!!!

Close up~

Trying to give a sense of perspective on the size of the party plate… its huge

HAHA! Still had time to do some CLS photography~ Check out the thickness of the salmon! Really fresh and delicious…

Not convinced? Let the pretty gal try to convince you la..

See, she was already licking her lips when see the piece of salmon!

How about the thickness? Maybe the next photos will give a better idea.

The Nokia n79 is 15mm thick… that piece of salmon is at least 10-13mm.

 

Here are some shots of the place

This leads to another block… more place to dine! Didnt take photos… shy ma.. :-P

Ops…. where did the meat go? Poor sushi!

After we had our fill of Japanese delicacies we headed to Bandar Seri Begawan.. Near Kampung Ayer…where we saw a lot of boats ferrying people to and fro to the Kampung Ayer.

The pictures below were taken with the classic Nikkor 80-200mm f2.8 lens

They were ferrying the locals as well as tourists for $B3.00 per person. Irene tried to nego a better deal, but couldnt. hehe! nice try Irene

Kinda like this shot. MmMMm…

Haha! check out Cynthina … so PRO..

So after kampung Ayer… we started our journey back to Miri.. along the way it started to rain heavily. And kind kind of rained till 8pm or so.. what a tiring day =) at 9 something I met up with Peter and went yumcha till about 1am.. I was beat.. went back to the hotel and slept like a log!

Oh and I’m posting this from Halo Cafe~ hehe thanks for the wifi.
