Batang Yagit conquers Brunei

Is this street named after the brother of Julia Roberts? Maybe not.

This is just one of the few street names that can be found in Brunei. Jalan is a Malay word which means street in the English language.

During my short stay in Negara Brunei Darrusalam, I learned a few things about the country. Brunei was once under the British Protectorate. It's a small but powerful country. The population of Brunei won't even reach a million.

Unlike in Manila, Brunei has an organized road and traffic system. I'm impressed on how disciplined the drivers in Brunei are. Similar to other Asian countries, Brunei's vehicles employ a right hand drive system. I was having some difficulty in crossing streets 'coz I get confused on which part of the road to look first. Hehehehe.

Stuffs in Brunei are expensive. While I was exploring their mall, my hand was doing the conversion. The prices in Brunei are almost twice as that of in Malaysia.

I'm supposed to go back to Brunei this Saturday but I opted not to. I feel to tired and I don't want to spend some dollars for another Brunei trip

Good for you to travel there.

It is interesting that "jalan" refer to street. Di ba diri sa ato ang dtreet is "dalan." paryente ra jud noh? It is evident our Malay kinship with the people in Borneo island shows up in our languages.
