EAYLF 2008 - First Day

Hey guys! Sorry for being late in updating! I'm going to continue on from where I've left in my previous post ;) So, it's still day 1 - after arrival ;)

There's really nothing significant on the first day.

My room-mate through out my stay in Thailand was Fathi. Luckily, I had a room-mate!:D I was scared I wouldn't be able to get up on time every morning. But it turns out the other way round. The YDP of UBD had to be woken up by me every single morning for 4 days! xD

We were given a superior room, number 1707.

OMG! I actually forgot to take more pictures of the hotel room! T-T Anyways, it's been so long since I slept in a hotel room! I love the bed :p It's absolutely comfortable!

One thing that caught my attention was the television system.

Notice the "Welcome NAZRIN, MR. BIN NARAWI" sign??

It's computer integrated!! So cool! You can watch live tv or download a variety of box offices (you have to pay, obviously)! What's more, you can surf the net using the television! Of course you won't be using a remote control to use the service :p The hotel provides you with a...

Wireless keyboard!

Cool, eh? Except that you have to pay about 1250 baht per day, which is around BND$50 T-T So the internet service is pretty much useless to me xp During those 4 days, I've been watching Star Movies and Channel [V] only xp

The organiser for the Youth Leadership Forum informed us that there wouldn't be any event in the afternoon that day. So we, the Bruneians decided to shop! =D

Since there is a shopping mall within walking distance, we agreed to walk, to save money.

I'll let the pictures describe my journey to the shopping mall.

Nope, we did not take the boat to the mall. I wish we had xp

Thai traffic controllers have cool helmets!xD

We were supposed to walk to Central World. But we ended up in a place called Big C instead xp

I'm not sure if this is Big C. Remember, we "ended" up in Big C xD

Big C is quite big. Not that big. At least bigger than the likes of The Mall or Yayasan. Again, I'm sorry I couldn't take more pictures of Big C. There were "Do not take pictures" posters everywhere! Couldn't risk getting my camera confiscated xp Or else, there would be no pictures for my next entries!

After some shoppings, we were so tired to walk back to the hotel. Unfortunately, the traffic was congested terribly, so hiring a cab wasn't an option. Actually this was a good thing xp Because, we had the chance to get a feel of the Tuk-Tuk!

I had a video of my journey with the Tuk-Tuk, but i can't upload it T-T It's 87mb!

We arrived at the hotel in no time ;) There was an event in the evening, where all delegates are to introduce one another. But before that, dinner time!

Muslim delegates were given a specific set of food every meal.

I love the soup! Don't know what's it called. Not Tom Yam Soup though.

However, we could still eat other foods that weren't in the set ;) Of course, no porks were allowed for us. It does looked tasty though xp The taste of pork still remains mystery to me.

I guess I'll stop here. There's too much to be told, and I'm not gonna cramp all in into this one entry xp
