Eid Mubarak everyone! =)

it’s my 6th year not celebrating Eid ul-Adha with the family. since it’s only a 1 day public holiday and i have only few days left for my AL, i decided to celebrate Eid in Miri..

have been doing a lot of travelling for the past 3 weeks or so..
MYY-KUL-MYY or MYY-BTU-MYY ..
even if i’m in the office i may not always be at my workstation.. lately it’s either SSB office or Abnaki Hall or KRP.. it’s tiring sometimes, but there are a lot to learn since i have moved to a new section.. Alhamdulillah =)
in fact i’ve already changed my signatures for my emails…hehh..

anyways, just got back from Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei.. it was an impromptu decision for me and Jazlin to celebrate Eid there. Jazlin’s friends came all the way from KK to Brunei, and when she invited me along, i’d say why not.. the initial plan was to travel before Fajr to BSB to get the chance to perform Eid prayer in Brunei. Luckily one of our colleagues told us that the border will not open until 6am. so we traveled to BSB last night and stayed one night in Gadong.

so by 7am, we were already in Jame’Asr Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque for Eid prayers. we thought there will be some jamuan after the prayers and khutbah..guess not.. managed to have a closer look (probably 5m away) at the sultan and his princes.. but they were all in the car..

then we had a short tour around kampung ayer since those from KK really wanted to visit the village. and for the girls, we actually rode the small boat with our baju kurung and heels on and without any life vest. sgt tak comply with HSE. luckily wearing life vest is not in the ZeTo rules 😛 am i right???

of course no Brunei trip is complete without SUSHI! =) so had lunch in excapade sushi. surprisingly i had only 2 plates of sushi.. haha and before coming back to Miri, we stopped at Gadong Mall for Dairy Queen Blizzard.. but i end up with these two kain..guess how much i bought them? hehh….

will travel again to BTU for the next 2 weeks..but i believe i’ll still be in Miri on weekends.. attending MLNG Natural Gas course next week insyaAllah..can’t wait! and for the following week, i’ll be there for BIF Due Diligence.. i’m happy to go to BTU as long i’m still based in Miri..heheh..

Take care ppl..and have a great week ahead 🙂

    Hey Daju! I just caught up on a bunch of your blog entries…sorry not to read more consistently. It’s really interesting for me to hear about how you celebrate Eid here – I remember you guys waiting for sundown at the barn dance during Ramadhan and asking you and Ku questions about Eid and stuff. I wish I could ask you more questions now about the levels of good works. Anyhow, thanks for explaining it some! Still hoping to make it to KL SOMEday…I’ll keep you posted. Miss you!
