Walk down memory lane... (updated with photos)

Had a busy weekend. Saturday night, I was covering the BSRC Berhari Raya event at the invitation of the BSRC President, Hj Idris, with the help of my son Zul273 and BB. (I was the BSRC President in 1999)

The Bruneian artists... we should really be proud of them

Sunday was an adventure day. I went with a combination of a group of 4X4 enthusiasts and 4X4 Professionals to Sukang. What started as an easy journey into Sukang, turned into an exciting and challenging home journey due to the heavy rain. Whilst the journey in only took less than 3 hours, the journey home took about 8 hours for some of the team members.
(I used to teach in Melilas in 1984-5 and Sukang was our transit point and all our journeys was by boat at that time. This was my first return to Sukang since Dec 1985!)

it's raining, it's falling... very heavily
that's not really difficult, but wet
now we're talking! (only the start of more challenges ahead)

I joined a camping trip to Sukang (all the way to Ingai) in 2000 (?) during pre-blogging and pre-digital camera days using boats on shallow water (you know what THAT means).

How fun it would be to see the place again now when we could take more pictures for rememberance and blogging, ha!

yes it feels good altho i would really like to go back to visit melilas. I was told that the old melilas school where i was teaching was already demolished. We love "floods" at that time coz it means only 2 hrs by boat to melilas compared to 6-7 hrs during low water.
