YES , THERE ARE THREE COUNTRIES SHARING THIS. BIG ISLAND IN CELEBES AND JAVA SEA. THE MAJORITY OF THE ISLAND IS BELONG TO INDONESIA WHILE BRUNEI WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TWO STATE OF MALAYSIA. AND  I EXPERIENCE TO TRAVEL THE ISLAND BY LAND. I START AT BRUNEI . THE SULTANE NATION AND THE RICHES AMONG THE THREE COUNTRIES AFTER BRUNEI GAIN THER INDPENDENCE FROM UNITED KINGDOM ON JANUARY 1984 AND BECAME THE FIFTH RICHES COUNTIES IN THE WORLD WITHOUT ANY FOREIGN DEBT.  

THEY REALLY HAVE NICE ROAD GOING TO SABAH BUT ONCE YOU CROSS THE BORDER BETWEEN BRUNEI AND SABAH. FIRST TIME TO EXPERIENCE ON NINE HOURS OF  BUS RIDE WITH SEVEN STOP FOR IMMIGRATION CHECK AND STAMP ON MY PASSPORT. SABAH IS VERY STRICT ON THEIR TERRITORY THAT YOU NEED TO GO DOWN AND LINE UP ON EVERY EVERY POST TO BE CHECK. I LEFT BRUNEI  AT 8:00 am THEN ARRIVED AT KOTA KINABALU AT 5:00 pm. AND STAYED FOR FOUR DAYS AND PROCEED TO  TAWAU . GOING TO TAWAU IS ANOTHER EIGHTH HOURS OF MOSTLY WINDING ROAD WITH HIGH ALTITUDE THAT GIVE YOU A LOT PRESSURE ON MY EAR BECAUSE OF THE ALTITUDE.  

 I STAYED THREE DAYS IN TAWAU. THERE IS NO TOURISTIC PLACE HERE EXCEPT FOR THEIR FISHING PORT . WHERE I ENJOYED EATING A LOT OF FISH ON MY LUNCH AND DINNER  AT THE PORT.FROM THERE I TOOK THE TWO AND HALF HOUR OF SPEED BOAT RIDE TO TARAKAN , INDONESIA . ARRIVED HERE AT 7:30 pm  AND ALMOST SLEEP OUTSIDE BECAUSE  ALL HOTEL AND ACCOMODATION ARE ALL FULL BECAUSE OF MUSLIM HARI RAYA CELEBRATION AND AFTER  AN HOUR GOING AROUND THE CITY I WAS ABLE TO FIND ONE BUT A LITTLE PRICY  AND NO CHOICE AND STAYED HERE FOR TWO DAYS . SAME THE CITY IS JUST GROWING AND NO SIGNIFICANT PLACE TO VISIT EXCEPT FOT BEACH AND MOSQUE.  

  FROM TARAKAN I FLEW TO PALU IN SULAWESI ISLAND PART OF INDONESIA . SAME THE PLACE IS SO PROVINCIAL EXCEPT PEOPLE ARE REALLY KIND TO GREET YOU .    

     ON THIS PICTURE I WAS INSIDE THE STORE SELLING DIFFERENT KIND OF STONES THAT IS GOOD FOR YOUR BODY . WHILE TH TOP PICTURE IS THE FESTIVAL IN PALU.  

 FROM PALU TO KUPANG KUPANG IS THE CAPITAL OF EAST NUSA TENGGARA THEN FROM THE I TOOK THE TEN HOUR MINIVAN RIDE . THE ROAD ARE REALLY ROUGH  , BUMPY , AND DUSTY TO TIMOR LESTE ANOTHER SMALL NEW REPUBLIC. 

 THIS IS THE BORDER BETWEEN INDONESIA AND TIMOR LESTE.THEN FROM TIMOR LESTE  BACK TO KUPANG FOR A DAY AND FLEW TO BALI. 

  

 THE YOUNG GIRL IS DOING THE FLOWER OFFERING IN THE MORNING WHILE THE SECOND PICTURE WAS TAKEN IN TOURISTIC PLACE IN BALI TO RELOAD MORE BEER . 

 THEN BALI TO YOGYAKARTA VISITING SEVERAL TEMPLE, 

   FROM YOGYAKARTA TO PONTIANAK IS ANOTHER ONE AND HALF HOUR OF FLYING. PONTIANAK IS FAMOUS FOR THEIR EQUATOR MARKER. THEN FROM PONTIANAK TO KUTCHING 

 KUTCHING IS THE CAPITAL OF SARAWAK  , MALAYSIA  I KNOW THIS IS A LONG JOURNEY TO TRAVEL THAT TOOK ME THREE DAYS TO REACH BACK TO BRUNEI 

 BUT. I TOOK ONE DAY REST IN MIRI TO RELAX MY HURTING BUTT.THEN PROCCEED TO BRUNEI.
