Sultans Of Brunei

Originally posted here by: Jay AKA SugarDaddy

Today we left the rather splendid country of Brunei after spending two nights in this oil rich habitat of the world.

Having left Kuching, located to the west of Borneo, we headed north first by plane then by taxi over the border completely hassle free; in fact we did not even have to get out of the car at border control as they gave us our visas without even looking at us at all!

Although not as kind on the wallets as the rest of South East Asia, the British Pound still goes a long against the Brunei Dollar.

So, other than having a vast amount of oil and having one of the richest men in the world as their King, what else is their to know about the small country that lies east of mainland Malaysia and south of the Philippines?

Well, firstly petrol is available at the local Shell garages at only 18p (yes 18p!!) a litre, the King (or His Majesty or Sultan as he is known locally) has been in reign since the age of 21 - his coronation was way back in 1961 - and his full title is His Majesty The Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah and alcohol, be it beer, lager, wine or spirits, is illegal in the country.

Complete with two wives, the Sultan is idolised by the whole of Brunei whose people are very proud of the man with five sons and six daughters.

During our visit to one of the cleanest and most civilised countries you are ever likely to experience, we went to the national museum, the local water village for afternoon tea, saw the Royal Palace (which, incidentally, was open for three days prior to our visit allowing the public to walk inside the grounds and the palace - sadly we were 24 hours late!) as well as the rather impressive national sports stadium and complex and the equally splendid 7 star Empire Hotel that comes complete with an 18 hole and 9 golf course and drive range, bowling alley, cinema, gym, badminton and basketball courts galore, its own beach, a fantastic outdoor pool and probably another selection of highlights I have forgotten!

Although it turned out to be a busy couple of days the warmth shown by the Brunei people as well as the clean streets, splendid sites, good food and calm surroundings certainly left a tear in our eyes as we left to board our bus and boat combination to Kota Kinabalu, north west of Borneo in Malaysia.

Brunei may be somewhere we all visit for our next holiday, that is for sure!

Anyway, that brings you up-to-date as I sit by the computer at the Borneo Hostel in Kota Kinabalu, the home of South East Asia’s biggest mountain.

It is possible not to recognize the uniqueness of a destination. I might have continued to overlook Brunei, hidden as it is on the island of Borneo between two East Malaysian states and Indonesia, if I hadn't spent a year in the Middle East's Sultanate of Oman.

Brunei looks like a nice place but we have only ever known about it from afar. Learn about our dealings with Brunei at www.royallyshafted.co.uk

sounds like you had an enjoyable couple of days...sadly, that is pretty much it for this hot, humid tiny country. Dull doesn't begin to describe it, from a tourism pov.
While the rest of Asia embraces tourism and makes every effort to explore every potential tourist niche, sleepy Brunei and its sleepy inhabitants will continue to think they are leaders in ASEAN, while in reality the whole country is in Shell's dole.
Nice place for a couple of days, but the unbearable smugness of the Bruneians soon wears thin.

Tourism and Brunei. That has been very difficult 'sales pitch' already. Not a lot of tourists want to come to Brunei, and now with Sharia law? Well, it will obviously be a lot harder. I used to promote Brunei to people as an interesting stop over for a few days. Not anymore, not now with Sharia law coming.

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be
directed to the Priest Abija email below Email:
spirituallighthealing101@live.com or
you can sent a text message to this number:(518) 303-6207!
