Farewell Kenduri

Kak Noriah, chef, caterer and all-round good friend was kind enough to sponsor this small impromtu gathering of friends with her East-Coast specialty "super-duper lekkerste Nasi Kerabu". For us, it was our last chance to have friends over at our place before the big move. And, thank you to Liza for your to-die-for Serawa Pisang.

We would like to extend out heartfelt gratitude and thanks to all our friends that came, even though it was such a short notice and a haphazard one, too.
Thank you Pak Mat and Unc. Joe, orang kuat MA-NL, we'll miss your anecdotes, advices and enthusiasm.
To the Kornets, we hope you'll have a great time in Houston, and, to Azhar, Suhar and family....don't forget us when you're back in Brunei Darussalam.

A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care of all to acquire.
~ François Duc de La Rochefoucauld

Danish Design

Mr Dudwey struggling to figure out how to assemble the Danish technology origami-based tape-less packing boxes....

Wassenaar, we have a problem.....


Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. 

We have the technology. 
We have the capability to build the world's first bionic box-producing man. 
Mr Dudwey will be that man. 
Better than he was before. 
Better, stronger, faster.

Tea at Cik Siti Afzan's

Petani didaik bermandikan keringat,
Naik jambatan tidaklah gugup,
Baik budi pasti diingat,
Menjadi kenangan sepanjang hidup.

Buah pauh airnya pekat,
Di atas para habis binasa,
Walaupun jauh terasa dekat,
Kekal hubungan sepanjang masa.

......sila jawab Puan Heri.....

MamaFaMi zei....
Kenangan manis tersemat di hati
Moga silaturrahim kekal abadi
Jawab jangan tak jawab wahai Puan Heri
Usah dibiarkan Muna ternanti-nanti

Intan Natasya zei....
Kat Holland tak dak kelapa,
Kat Malaysia macam-macam ada,
Wajahmu Kak Muna tak akan dilupa
Tetap terpahat disanubari kami semua
