Brunei Chinese Temple

While it is a cold winter here in New Zealand, I recall when I was visiting Brunei last year. The tour guide took us past this old Chinese Temple and then to a market place where he told us ,"No where in the world can you get rice so cheap. For One Brunei dollar, you can have Nasi Katok and curry chicken and vegetable."

My son was so hot that he went to the bathroom and splashed himself with water.

I was later told that the Government subsizes the rice.

Buongiorno Ann,interesting picture very beautiful its perspective.

The dream of your son might really come true, Brasil is a well prepared team that has a lot of imagination in the field, but I'd like to win someone who has never won a world championship.

Hi Ann, I had to look up and see where Brunei was... Indonesia---right????? Sounds like the best place to go to get rice dishes... Wow!!!!

Have a good week.

I guess subsidizing the rice keeps lots of people fed and employed!

That temple looks as if it has been there for quite some time. It's an interesting structure.
