Borneo Break: Japanese Food in Brunei!

Seeing the crocodiles in Miri Crocodile Farm cum Mini Zoo was a delightful experience and a safe one too! While in Sarawak, The Borneo Post reported the first croc attack in Sungai Seruai's 200-year history. A 22 year old man, Rudy Sermion Ng, was reported being dragged struggling and screaming by a huge crocodile into the river. Crocodile attack seems like a common occurence in Borneo and someone told me that the indigenous people there would throw a stone into the river to test if there were any crocodile before jumping in for a swim. Of course, I didn't see it being done.Earlier, our planned swim in the river in Julau didn't materialise due to the rain and never mind - I was actually glad that it didn't especially after the news of the croc attack nearBatang Saribas hit the news. Enough about crocs then - after the visit to the crocodile farm in Miri, Mau Wei came out with a great idea. We were off to Seria, Brunei to have some Japanese food

Japanese food!

I wonder if you get to eat Japanese food over there? Over here, we have to go to special Japanee Restaurant and there are not many.

Great (and not too great)supermarkets have many different half ready preparations to cook foods of other countries. Mostly mexican, japanese. Personally use rarely these foods because they have not good taste, seems to me. But it's possible to buy them.

Our supermarkets sell Japanese food too but the one in the restaurants are nicer, some are not so nice though but they are terribly expensive.
