Chinese New Year is not complete without a dragon dance as it is believed to exorcise evil spirits and summon luck and fortune. This year, the "lion" didnt go all the way to my mum's house as it did last year, hence we know we are missing something.... :-)
Anyway, my friends who live in Chempaka at Jalan Tutong and Belait District reported many lion dances were preformed during the chinese new year. My friend in Belait had to pay $488 then they would come and perform at her house and i thought that was a tad expensive.

Kampong Perpindahan Rimba is one of the largest "resettlement" project in Brunei Muara District. From the "normal" perpindahan houses where low income public servants applied and got the 20-years interest free housing scheme, it has now expanded to cater for government officers in Division 2 salary scale (graduates and above) who will only obtain land while the house they would have to built their own.

Constituting over 15% of Brunei's total population, the Chinese community in Brunei is indeed living peacefully in the Abode of Peace, Brunei. Many Chinese locals and foreigners have contributed significantly in the country's economic development and many of them work in the country's private sector.

Supposedly "Temporary" but the Malaysian on the other side of the road is in the process of building a new CIQ building, possibly smaller than the one they are building at Kuala Lurah border....I guess the "temporary" would be permanent boarder....
