Brunei Trip Finale

I have procrastinated a bit on updating my blog, so here it is the final post of the Brunei trip. I cannot really remember where was the place I had lunch, but the food was pretty good. Sometimes the food does not look that appealing but the taste is good.

While dinner, we decided have it at traders cafe which was just down where we stayed. The food is pretty good, it was time to call it a day and get ready to drive down to Miri.

The next days seems pretty good, wrong again. I was given the wrong direction and it send me on a wild goose chase, the petrol was running low and I was on panic mode. Because in Brunei Malaysian cannot simply go to any petrol station to fill up, only certain petrol station are authorized to do so which I find it a total bull crap.

Before searching for food, I decided to meet up with Aliff an old friend of mine whom I have not seen in ages. We had lunch at Cheez next to the mall, I had the baked cheese rice while Aliff had the curry chicken rice. It was really good meeting up with Aliff, later on I found petrol after getting the wrong directions again but I found my way back home safely.

Kok Chee Restaurant

Last weekend it was Curtin university's graduation day, one my cousin has finally graduated. My uncle and aunt dropped by, we had a small family gathering diner at Kok Chee restaurant. Kok chee restaurant is one of the pioneer of hotel Chinese restaurant in Miri, back in the old days there weren't many hotels in Miri, and Park hotel was one of the earliest. The restaurant is very well know for their quality taste of Chinese food, until today it is still one of the preferred choice of dinning for many Mirians especially the senior citizens.

Cousin Michelle, Melissa and their boy friends were fashionably late. No further explanation needed for that, their arrival time was just right on cue whereby the food has just been served.

First we have the suckling pig, crispy, crunchy and juicy. The pig is roasted with method that made the skin very crispy, yet retaining the moisture in the meat which made it a sinfully tasty meal.

This is my first time tasting kampung chicken being barbecued, the typical way of enjoying the chicken is usually cooked in a broth. Kampung chicken is known to be the leanest poultry with very less fat than the commercial fatten farmed chicken since it is always on the run from the butchers, which why it looked very small. The aromatic smell and flavor of the charred chicken was splendid! a definite recommendation by yours truly.

The food is pretty good for a Filipino franchised fast food outlet. I had the champ meal, which is something similar to a big mac, while my colleague had the chicken rice meal.

After the exhibition we went back to the hotel, chill a bit then it's time to go find food. Dinner at Sing U Mee somewhere near Traders Inn, the food taste great but the portion is freaking small. We had spinach with oyster sauce, bah ku teh, and fried rice with Butter milk pork.

I saw this very nice looking toilet on display from the shop next to where we eat, it seems to be suitable for bachelors I think.
