I was at a VIP house and noticed these nice boxes made of wood. These werre given as gifts from foreign dignitaries while abroad. I'm not really good at taking pictures, so these are my best shots..


My family and I attended the wedding reception last night at the Rizqun International Hotel, Gadong. Guests from both sides crowded the room. We were entertained by an Indonesian group, who sang mostly dakwah songs. After the doa kesyukuran was read, it was time to eat. The food was okay, I guess, but I liked the sweet & sour fish, the most. 

Present at the wedding was Her Royal Highness Princess Azimah and His Royal Highness Prince Abdul Mateen.

I've just been from Mum's bakery in KB. The shop is nice from the inside and the music is very nice to the ears. But, wait! The staff, they are not as nice as the shop or the music. They do not greet the customers good morning and thank you. All they give you are their sour faces. They are not wearing anything to cover their hair; a hair net will do I suppose.

Once, when I was early and didn't have time to have breakfast at home, I went over to Mum's bakery, KB, to grab something to eat. When I was about to pay, the cashier didn't bother to smile or greet 'good morning',, and had that sort of sour face. So I asked her, "What's wrong with you?" She replied, "Nothing." Then I asked again, "Why is your face so sour early in the morning?" She said, "No lah." I said, "You should greet your customers and thank them. You're in the service industry." She didn't want to look at me but continue putting my purchase in the plastic.

The owner of Mum's bakery, KB. Go and take a look at your staff. I think you should send them for a course on etiquette.

Suri Seri Begawan Hospital, Kuala Belait - We would appreciate if the dispensary section can expedite despatching medicines to the patients. There are 2 counters at the moment; one for yellow stub and one for green stub. This afternoon, we waited for 10 mins and the number for the green stub has moved only once. Whereas the yellow stub was faster as the number of patients called was higher. There are so many patients and some left without the medicines because they couldn't wait that long. Relevant authorities, please look into this matter seriously.
