We left our car in Brunei and walked across the border - Here's Rob next to the 'Welcome to Limbang' sign.
There's really not much in Kuala Lurah, just a small and rather scruffy selection of market stalls and roadside restaurants that have sprung up on the border... but of course there's a duty free shop.
The restaurants are mainly tin huts often with a motorbike or two parked inside, or a barbecue set up outside a house. We were highly amused to see a car pull up at one, and the driver pull a dead baby crocodile (about 50cm long) out of the boot! She walked into one of the restaurant kitchens... we decided not to eat there! (Wish I'd been a bit quicker with the camera to get a photo too).
I loved this artistic menu!
The duty free shop had some interesting drinks not found in the Naafi. We bought a bottle of the Chinese rice wine on the right of this picture to use for cooking.
We ate in a little cafe. As soon as we sat down the Chinese owner came up to us and said 'Beer?' It seemed a real treat to have a lager with lunch when eating out so of course we said yes... and yes again when he asked us a second time!
A nasi goreng (fried rice) for me, mee goreng (fried noodles) for Rob and 2 beers each came to the grand total of 9 Bruneian dollars - about 4.50 GBP. Cheap and delicious!
We were also very excited to get FOUR stamps in our passports as we went through the Bruneian and Malaysian border-posts, going into then back out of Malaysia. I think our passports are going to fill up pretty fast while we're living here.
