IT TOOK TWO HOURS AND TWENTY MINUTES TO REACH PONTIANAK BY AIR. PONTIANAK IS KNOWN FOR THE MARKER OF THE EQUIATOR .THEN FROM THE AIRPORT TO BUS STATION COST ME THITY TWO US DOLLARS. IM SUPPOSE TO STAY FOR ANOTHER DAY HERE BUT I NEED CATCH MY  PLANE IN BRUNEI.  THOSE GUY ON THE PICTURE HELP ME TO BUY MY BUS TICKET. THEY ARE REALLY KIND IN ASSISTING ME AT THE BUS STATION .

 AND IT TOOK SIXTHEEN HOURS TO REACH KUTCHING . KUTCHING IS THE CAPITAL OF SARAWAK . THE ROAD FROM INDONESIA  IS REALLY ROUGH AND DUSTY . WE LEFT PONTIANAK AT TWO IN THE AFTERNOON UNTIL WE REACH THE BORDER AT SIX IN THE MORNING AND MAKE ME NAUSEA AND MY BODY  BY SWAYING AND BUMPING UP AND DOWN THAT KEEP ME AWAKE THE WHOLE NIGHT.THEN AFTER WE CROSS THE BORDER THE THE ROAD ARE MORE SMOOTH THAT MAK E ME SLEEP THEN REACH KUTCHING AT ELEVEN IN THE MORNING AND BUY MY TICKET AGAIN FOR MIRI AND LEAVE AT THREE IN THE AFTERNOON AND REACH MIRI THE FOLLOWING DAY AT SIX IN THE MORNING . THAT TRIP IS REALLY TIRING THAT MAKE MY BUTT HURT.  

   I STAYED ONE DAY IN MIRI TO REST FOR NON STOP  TWO DAYS OF BUS RIDING. 

   THE TRIP IS ACTUALLY TWO HOURS ONLY BUT THE BORDER TOOK ALMOST TWO HOURS. THE FIRST THING THEY WILL ASK YOU ONCE THEY OPEN YOUR BAG IF YOU ARE CARRYING ALCOHOLIC DRINK BECAUSE YOU NEED TO DECLARE  IT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU ARE CARRYING. 

   ARRIVED AT BRUNEI AT ONE IN THE AFTERNOON AND STAYED HERE FOR ANOTHER THREE DAYS AND TOOK THE  OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT SULTAN PALACE WHERE IT POPULAR IN THE WORLD BECAUSE THE DOME IS MADE OF SOLID GOLD AND THIS PALACE ONLY OPEN TWICE A YEAR DURING THE MUSLIM CELEBRATION . BEAUTIFUL PALACE. 

     THE ONLY WAY TO VISIT THIS WATER VILLAGE IS BY BOAT. BOAT FARE HERE IS VERY TRICKY . IF YOU DONT SPEAK INDONESIA  THE PRICE IS SO PRICY. LOCALPEOPLE PAY ONLY ONE BRUNEI DOLLAR BUT IF YOU DONT SPEAK THE LANGUAGE THEY KNOW THAT YOU ARE TOURIST, THEN YOU NEED TO BARGAIN FROM TWENTY GOING UP. I CAN OBSERVE THAT WATER VILLAGE IS NOT CHEAP WATER RESIDENTIAL THEY HAVE THOSE BEAUTIFUL HOUSES.  

   I WENT TO THE BEACH AND MET THESE GROUP OF PILIPINO WORKER HAVING THEIR PICNIC AT THE BEACH AND VERY HAPPY TO SEE EACH OTHER.
