Some Random Things You Need to Know About Brunei (That Have Nothing to Do with Their Upcoming LGBT Death Penalty)

Hi, everyone!

How have you been? Have you read the news recently, especially the one about George Clooney calling out for hotel boycott over Brunei LGBT laws?! Well, I’m not going political in this post, despite the fact that I have big respect to all LGBT communities, both in Brunei and everywhere else.

If you read my blog frequently, you might already know that sooner or later, I’m going to post something about Brunei here anyway. So, that’s what I’m going to do today.

But this time, I’m not going to touch the topic that has been on the news in the past few days. I’m going to focus on what I know and what I see from my last trip to Brunei Darussalam. At the same time, I’m going to share some random findings that I’ve found about the country as well! 😉

First Time Staying at an Airbnb in Brunei: EZ Lodgings, Bandar Seri Begawan

So, in case you haven’t read my previous post on my last Borneo trip, my main destination for the trip is actually Brunei Darussalam. Not only that I wanted to go to Brunei as I have to tick off this country from my bucket list, but also because I’ve got an old friend there to visit. 😉

My first time in Brunei became the first thing for me to do something else: staying at an Airbnb.

I know, some of you might wonder where I have been all the time that I never used the platform before as I’ve traveled. However, despite creating my account in the platform a long time ago, my first experience staying at Airbnb was on the trip to Brunei.

In Brunei, I stayed at EZ Lodgings, located around 15 minutes drive from the city center in Bandar Seri Begawan. For this, I got recommended by Suzie ever since we started talking about my plan to visit her in Brunei.

Beauty on Borneo Trip: What I’ve Packed Beyond the Clothes to Borneo

Hello, everyone! 😀

So, today marks the first week I’ve been on the road in Borneo. I’m currently in Kuching, a city in Sarawak, the eastern part of Malaysia. My trip has been great so far, despite I had to deal with the heavy raining in some places that I visited. But overall, everything has been great for me.

As I made a poll a few weeks ago about whether I should post something about what I’ve packed for a month trip in Borneo and the response was positive, and now that I’ve got some time to kill after strolling around the city… Let me share with you what I’ve got!

Travel Fashionably From Head To Toe Around South East Asia

In case you’re not familiar with my traveling style, my traveling style is something in-between a budget traveler and not-so luxurious one.

I mean, I’m totally fine with the idea of staying at a cheap motel with a small room as long as I could get a quality time through doing my makeup without any disruption. I’m not exactly the kind of person who would ask for a pic anytime I see a good stop for the ‘gram, but clothes and makeup are the essential things for me to travel comfortably.

I’m not exactly fashionable, as I’m kind of a sucker when it comes to the idea of mix and match things I’ve got in my clothes. However, I’m not exactly a t-shirt and jeans kind of person either.

So, if you could relate to the situation and you’re planning to travel around South East Asia, let me share with you the tips and trick on how to travel fashionably in this part of the world! 😉
