It’s Bonus time 

 


Yesterday’s queue at Tanjung Bunut. It’s bonus time and most of the salaries are from BIBD if I’m not mistaken. Good thing I’m not in Brunei right now. Image courtesy of Jason Rumpun.


The scene taken last night and maybe this is no coincidence that there was such a queue of this magnitude. The happiest bunch are definitely the kids. A great payoff session. Image courtesy of @serirabakri


Now where can you make use of your bonus? Of course, the current ongoing Brunei Salebration. However, I opted to shop outside of Brunei because of the varieties it can offer and also with great discounts everywhere. Furthermore, I’m more into the quality it offers. This is one of the shops in Singapore that has discounts up to 50% on their clothes and apparels.


Announcement from BIBD 
 

From BIBD: Dear Valued Customers,

Kindly be informed all BIBD branches will be closed today due to technical problems.

Present to grace the cake cutting were the general manager, Amal Majidah and marketing manager, Lim Yee Liang.

Siem Reap revisited 
 

I haven’t been consistent in my updates on RA and the reason being is that I’m currently outstation and in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This is my third trip back to Siem Reap and it has been awesome apart from the slight showers. We were supposed to visit the temple with a bunch of friends but the weather wasn’t favourable. Today we will have another opportunity again to visit Angkor Wat during the day. Let’s hope for some good weather.

So peeps. I won’t be updating my blog for some time now so I can allow myself to enjoy the moments in Siem Reap which I have a few days left. Oh by the way, there will be a few Bruneians coming in to Siem Reap for the upcoming Angkor Wat Marathon. I do hope I have time to drop by and take some pictures. We shall see.

 


I would have thought my luggage would have been lower than 20K but no…. it hit the right spot 😀
 


For many years, we have been traveling buddies and truly appreciate the friendship that we have.
 


I’m actually quite impressed with the infrastructure of KLIA 2 (low cost terminal for AirAsia) because it seems to be more happening with tons of food & beverage outlets and shops around. It’s like millions way better than their older airport (LCCT).
 


This outlet, Hometown, is better than Old Town actually. Do try the steamed roti kawin.
 


Quite an affordable hotel at Tunes Hotel and I was skeptical in the beginning but the energy was quite welcoming and judging from the reception and the interior design at the lobby, I could tell the rooms would be just perfect for a short stay in KL.
 


Even the key slot for the room at Tunes Hotel look very savvy
 


The room is quite spacious and it costs below USD 60 per night
 


Arrived at Siem Reap last Monday and it seems the airport has not changed from the exterior bit. My last visit was back in 2011 and I was impressed that even my PR status passport didn’t require Visa unless you are staying more than 14 days.. Awesome!!! Thank you to the government of Cambodia for this.
 


Once you at the arrival hall, you will come across these kiosks and just look at the prices they offer. It’s quite competitive in Siem Reap where they have 5 telcos selling sim cards with data at very dirt cheap price. For USD 5, I could get a sim card and 3.5 GIGA data. Awesome!!! The line I chose was Cellcard (orange company)
 


A warm soothing welcome at Angkor Palace Resort & Spa. Actually, it doesn’t feel like a resort because there’s no beach around the hotel.
 


This is my current room and I will be staying here a few more nights. Pleasure to have Vincent Goh of Netcom Computer House as my roommate
 


We came to this desert place in city and wow, we were impressed with all the desserts. Highly recommended at L’Anexxe. Do google in and for those Bruneians coming down here for the Angkor Wat marathon, do try out this French cafe. There was also a small pool table for us to play.
 


Catching up with friends for dinner at Madam Butterfly.
 


One thing I like about Angkor Palace is the huge pool
 


Another amazing friend who I truly appreciate and thank you for believing, Pat!
 


The tuk-tuk ride to the city of Siem Reap and the riders are much more gentle compared to the ones in Bangkok. Make sure you don’t pay more than USD 3 per trip 😀
 


Few days ago this happened to my left eye and my eyes were pretty itchy too. I’m not sure if it’s the antibiotics that I have been taking because it stopped itchy after I stopped taking them.

Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant 
 


The ongoing promotion at Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant every weekend
Have you ever dine at Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant? Not many people know of its existence. You might be aware of the old Badi’ah building and it has been going through a transformation and now it’s turned into a hotel and a restaurant. I dined for the first time at Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant on the 1st floor and it has quite a spacious area to begin with.

Currently they are having a special promotion – Badi’ah Fusion Buffer Dinner. The buffet dinner offers free flow of appetisers, soup, main course, noodles, porridge, seafood, hot dishes, desserts featuring Chinese, Malay, English and Japanese flavours prepared by the kitchen staff with 30 years of experience in the food and beverage field. The dinner also includes a free flow of beverages.

Some of the standard items for the buffet dinner includes Ayam Masak Merah, Salted Egg Chicken, Mongolian Lamb, Beef Rendang, Sweet and Sour Fish, Butter Egg Fish, Roasted Poultry, Mixed Vegetables with Oyster Sauce, Wantan Broccoli and an assortment of tantalising Japanese sushi and Chinese dim sum to choose from as well fruit tarts, assorted cakes, sandwiches and more for dessert.

However, the menu will be changed every weekend night, according to Joey Kong Siow Wei, the Manager of Badi’ah Hotel Restaurant. The buffet dinner starts from 7.30pm to 10.30pm, every Friday to Sunday. It is priced at $28.80 for adults and $14.40 for children. But good news is that they are having a 20% discount on the weekends until end of March.

They will also stand a chance to win a mini iPad and smartphone in a lucky draw session. The eatery also provides outside catering services as well as banquet services to which the hotel can accommodate a maximum of 800 people.

Today’s the final day 
 

Times Square Shopping Centre has always been great in creating events and exposure for participating tenants. After the successful Japan Festival 2014 event, TSSC held another interactive event for the public, targeting the younger generation with the gimmick called “Armed for the Undead”.

This event has been a success since Wednesday and sadly today will be the final day. I saw a lot of interest after my posting on instagram last Wednesday. The “Armed for the Undead” event or more commonly known as the Nerf versus Zombies experience is an innovative form of entertainment that Times Square Management has organized specially for this year’s first school term break. With an entry fee of only $3, customers get to choose their “weapon” or Nerf Gun and walk their way into the zombie infested arena. Supported by The Brunei Milsims Cosplayers, customers were also given a short briefing of the rules to ensure a safe playing environment.

Today it will be open by 11am and ends at 9pm tonight. So if you haven’t try, you still have a chance to do so. The cost per entry is $3 and those under 5 years old will not be allowed. You can check out their updates on instagram @timessquarebrunei
