Where the hell is Matt!
Sunday, September 03, 2006

Aww man... Really envy this guy. He embarked on his 6 months trip through 39 countries on all 7 continent. Amazing journey... The long time dream to be able to travel to places like him.
Any takers?

Anyway... after i watched that "Dancing" video, i came to a conclusion.

Among all the 39 countries he've been to... i have only been to ONE!

Just ONE!

I bet his passport is FULL. Full of immigration chops.

The only country i've been to in Matt's list was Brunei.

That was during my 2 mths stay in Sabah for my attachment. We visited Brunei for a short trip in order to extend our visa. All 7 of us, we took a ferry to Labuan and transfer to another ferry to Brunei.

I think it was a 3D2N stay. We spent our time walking around Brunei and visiting the most famous Mosque of all. Yes... the one u saw Matt dancing infront of. I was there too!

There you go! Right where Matt was standing. Just that we're not dancing lah... I'm telling ya, that thing behind is expensive yo... See that top part? Pure GOLD. You know... Brunei, oil, gold... In fact, we all went inside the Mosque. They were having their prayers so we had to wait outside for them to finish before we could go in.

We had to sign this book and wear a long black dress before going in. And no cameras allowed. It was beautiful inside. Tinted colour glass panels all around and with the sunlight shining in...
Holy Cow. Looked up and there it was. The GOLD. =)

After which we head over to the famous Jerudong Playground. It's this super big amusement park in Brunei. Formly presented as a gift to the Sultan, it was free admission to the public. However due to high maintance, they now charged 15 moolahs for admission. We played like kids from go karts to merry-go-round and that freaking roller coaster ride. OMG! I can still remember the feeling of being thrown upside down and inside out and screaaaaming at the top of my lungs....

"i dont wannnnnna plaaaay liaaaoooo! Argggggh!"

Seriously... i practically screamed from the start of the ride till the end.
It's reaaaally scary. I cant do roller coaster rides lah.

Some random pics taken in Brunei.

In their public transport - the bus. Trying to find our way to the hotel but got lost anyway.

With koreans at a shopping centre in Brunei.

Their traditional costume they wear for weddings.

Merry-go-round! We were the only ones on the ride. It's ours!

Those were the times man. It was so much fun. Travelling around. Exploring. Getting to places in the most budget way. Photo-whoring. Laughing. Understanding people's culture and language. I swear i'm going back to Sabah again....

Or even better, travel like Matt.

you'll know it's
all because of you
we can do
whatever we want to
