To The Border

My hubby, Habibati and I went to Miri last Friday. Habibi couldnot join us because he just recovered from fever. We left him with my maid at my parents' home. There would be a health check at both Brunei and Sarawak posts. Since the world is alarmed by the swine flu, so we decided not to bring Habibi. Now, I would love to share our journey which took about 2 hours to reach the destination by car.We first had to pay BND$3 at the Rasau Toll (still in Brunei area).
Thank God...the traffic was not too bad for checking. We were now by the Sarawak's border....again another checking point. Habibati said these were "horses" heeeee.....of course it was because of the snout!Again aother toll at the border of Sarawak. We had to pay RM10 only. Below shows the high bridge of Sarawak.
Happy Habibati....

The first shopping spot...Bintang Plaza. However...we had to buy the parking coupon first..RM5 for the whole day....but...the parking space was quite hard to find!

At ToysRus, Habibati bought a trumpet and she also chose a guitar for her brother. She even chose a 'tiara' and put it straightaway on her head! Our lunch at SugarBun, Habibati liked the rice very much.
This really attracted our attention!! HABIBI Cake Shop...Another shopping spot.....

.......suddenly something happened....blackout! Lucky, we had finished with our shopping.

What what did we get for the kids and ourselves? Nothing much but few pieces of KIKILALA and KIKO clothings, 2 pairs of flats and RASA magazines for me. As for my hubby, he got his T-shirt and pants as his father's day present...

Wokey...that's all....tomorrow we will be going to Temburong to attend my BIL's 'papat jambol' ceremony for their newborn. Again, we will have to pass across another Malaysian border namely Limbang. Another long journey again.....

MeRy ~ I think not a new one, but currently it is under renovation to enlarge the parking spaces and to provide more shops. I wish I could go there someday too...especially when the rate is high now..BND1 is equivalent to RM2.40 *winks*

Liza ~ True! but i think the chickies at Limbang Sugarbun are not as crispy as those sold in Sugarbun Miri. My kids to really love the savoury rice....mmmmmm yummy....!
