Temburong

One word is already enough to create the buzz amongst Bruneian. Yes, the other district in Brunei Darussalam that famous for its beautiful reserved tropical rainforest and its popular Malay local foods: Wajid Jawa, Cendol Temburong and last but not least, their local giant freshwater prawn or what we called it Udang Galah.

Since the Temburong bridge is open until 10 pm it is accessible for the people to be able to go there and I feel so grateful I could experience passing the 22km long bridge which takes about 20 minutes to go to the other side when my family kind of ‘stranded’ in our own country in the midst of this pandemic.

I almost forgot the new craze menu the Temburong people manage to create from Udang Galah–it’s the Burger Udang Galah. If you don’t mind waiting in queue for hours just to get this burger, for BND3 it is worth to try once in your life.

I also have the chance to see some improvement done by the government for the place especially at the public areas like this one image below.

Unique designed light pillars that awed me.

It isn’t officially opened to the public yet. However, I am excited about what else they want to do with this place in the coming few weeks. What I know at the moment phase 2 is under construction. Phase 2 is building a waterfront. I can’t wait to see it. Although we can’t go to Miri or Limbang– two of Malaysia’s small towns that close to Brunei’s border due to the Covid-19 restrictions, at least we get to see a new place inside our country that worth for a visit.

Won A Giveaway

I never thought of winning something but since someone tagged me in Instagram about this local beverage shop’s tag and win thing so I tagged again my friends and my hubby and just this Tuesday I read my IG message the shop chose me amongst the 10 winners. I felt so lucky!

I won two vouchers: free Signature Kurma drink and 50% off if you purchase the same drink. Brew9 is a new shop. So I guess this is just their marketing strategy to introduce the shop to all.

So yesterday I came to Brew9 shop to get my free drink. The taste was not overly sweet. I could taste the blended coffee and dates. Even though there were jellies in it, it didn’t taste weird. Also, I am very surprised that coffee and dates do go well together. Cool combo.

The shop has an app if you want to make your order and delivery too. It’s a must I guess since we are still not free from the pandemic. But just a few days ago Brunei had announced that local premises is open to the customer to dine in(with maximum 30 persons and still maintain social distancing), many people came to order their drinks.

They have other drinks that I feel like I want to try. However, they aren’t cheap. Lol. Perhaps, when payday comes I would try their juice and the macarons.

Brew9’s location: Ground floor, The Walk, Beribi, Gadong
