Family Picnic in Tutong @ 15 Nov

Last weekend, Gembo family with nenek nenek & Wawa wawa + cousins went to the beautiful Tutong beach, located midway between our Kuala Belait town and Bandar Seri Begawan... Last we went there was August 2006! 

It was a treat for the children having finished their exams on Thursday. Wish the Sunset Photographer was there though.... u r really missed!

We brought fried mee & fried rice & fried chix (READ: FRIED!) + keropok's - my my, this is a calorie laden outing hahahah - but the kids enjoyed it, they get to play with the waves and the BIG kids get to play the ATV (all terrain vehicle?), that cost $10 per 20 minutes. We played a full 1 hour until it got too hot out there.

Enjoy the pics below. 

The beautiful beach, and THAT cloud... I don't know what it is but it sure looks interesting, so captivating!

The kids playing with the waves... well, that's as far as they could go.

Babah.... may I ride with you? Of course, son. 

My in-laws were wondering - what's gone wrong with their "favourite" son-in-law

The following pics are Brunei local dish Ambuyat...... however, the photos are taken at two location: one at home (2 weeks ago) and the other at the famous (at least in Brunei) Aminah Arif Restaurant. You can visit this site to get more info about the Ambuyat.

Personally, this is a great family gathering dish - we usually have this during the weekends when we get together at my dad's place or they come over to my crib.

Ambuyat and the condiments: sliced roast beef, tapioca shoot (soup?) and the sambal blend of binjai and tempoyak... Yummy!

Also sliced carrots and cucumber, with Sambal Belacan (Shrimp Paste)

My personal favourite: Udang Kari (Curry Prawn) and the Sambal Binjai and Tempoyak. My wife makes the best sambal binjai/tempoyak.

Recently I posted my $1000 photo (revised to $1263 . . . . ouch!)
