After so much anticipation, I got to enter Brunei again to their arguably best sushi chain store, Escapade Sushi.
Given the location of this restaurant quite near to the border, it is very famous for Mirian who crave Japanese. Their best advertising in Miri is certainly word of mouth.
Reservation by phone is essential should you intend to dine in at weekends. It is so full.
Food here is amazing, but I am totally lost with their name, so I shall let all the pictures do the talking. Enjoy
After all these indulgement, its time to face the reality. Hohoho
Total ammount spent after special membership discount is about BND110. For a meal for 7 people, I would say it is reasonable.
Even better deal for Bruneians/Singaporeans. Malaysians? Well, maybe bring out the calculators….
I reckon this experience is excellent, and I certainly would love to come again!!
I saw this special drink when I am in Brunei last week.
Dubai Cola? What is that?
In a big to clear off my Bruneian coins, I bought it and brought it home, since its on sale.
It tastes not bad! Dates flavour is there, but it complements well with the cola flavour.
See, even my cat wanna have a drink! Of course, she is not allowed (evil grin).
Ironically, this cola is not made in Dubai, but actually from Italy. Maybe the dates come from Dubai
That’s the end of my Brunei series. I like that country a lot, indeed it is an “Abode of Peace.”
May peace be all my readers. Byebye ^_^
As a fast food junkie myself, who religiously eat McDonald’s once a week at least, I am amused to find a Bruneian fast food joint called Jollibee in Seria.
Well, it’s not really Bruneian, but after some research online, it is actually a Filipino-based fast food franchise.
Well, it is interesting enough, because I cannot find this in Malaysia.
So I went inside to satisfy my glutton stomach.
The menu selection is pretty decent, though not as much variety as McDonald’s or KFC. Nice to see speghetti and rice meals there.
After some moments of my indecisiveness, I ordered a set of CHAMPION BURGER.
Burger with ice lemon tea and meager amount of “regular” fries.
Looks like McD’s Double Cheeseburger, just that they use real tomato slice and vegetables.
Of course, local food is also available in Seria town, and plenty of them too, even though it’s fasting month.
Macam macam ada. This stall is right opposite of Jollibee.
NASI KATOK, the pride of Brunei. With only BND1, I got ample amount of rice with BIG piece of chicken!
Well, if my brain keeps becoming a calculator to convert BND to MYR non-stop, I could have just starved to death.
So, for me, open-mindedness is needed to spend on food in Brunei. Enjoying the food feast is what it all matters.
Eat safe and stay safe! Signing off and God bless ^^
Built and commemorated by HRH Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei at 1991, this monument signifies the achievement of producing one billionth of crude oil in this country.
The monument is located very close to the very first site where Shell first found oil. Since then, Brunei’s fortune has changed massively, and has never looked back.
View from the monument.

Build by Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP), OGDC Seria has all the information and exhibits that showcase the contributions of oil and gas towards the development and wealth of Brunei.
It’s location is also appropriate because Seria is the oil town of Brunei, and unlike Miri, it is still producing oil on-shore up until today.
Lush greens welcome the visitors.
Since it was fasting month, I was the only visitor at that time, which enabled me to have all the place for myself.
OGDC is divided into 2 parts of exhibits. One half shows the oil and gas industry, BSP history of exploration and oil production in Brunei.
Second part is about transportations. All exhibits are interactive, so I can play around with them.
A robot says hi
Some stones in the drawers.
Porosity of the rocks determines how much oil the rock can contain.
Explains about viscosity of liquids.
Some kind of hand pump using the lever.
They ask you to build pipelines around Brunei.
Off-shore rig, build to find more oil and gas.
Dubbed “nodding donkey”, this pumps crude oil from on-shore sites.
Build the inside parts of engine.
Racing between a racing-bicycle and some other bicycle that user can recline.
Can play around with the air blimp. Quite fun, but I still blur on how to control it.
A model aircraft, with a simulator on it.
It’s really fun! Although I crashed many times ahaha
Tesla ball! Should be fantastic if it can work, to see the real electric in hand.
I would recommend OGDC Seria, although the experience would have been better had all the games and exhibits are operational.
Entrance fee is BND5 for adults. For more information, please visit http://www.ogdcbrunei.com
