Romancing the sunset Apr 06, 2009
My Sony camera took me to a fairly popular place in Brunei - the 1 Billionth Barrel Monument. The beautifully erected monument is one of the most recognisable landmark in Brunei. Located in the Belait district, some one hour drive away from Bandar Seri Begawan, it is a popular destination for joggers and sunset lovers like myself as it is built right on the seashore facing the magnificent South China Sea. In my opinion, the main attraction of the place was not really the monument but the beautiful scenery. The beach stretches miles and miles away which is the main reason why people love to go there to jog or walk while enjoying the relaxing sound of the waves and seabreeze. The best time to go there is around 4pm as the sun is a bit cooler then. Unfortunately, there is no eating place or any foodstalls available around so its good to bring your own picnic basket along. Walk along the beach and you will notice some people with metal rods that look like TV antenna in their hands poking the shore here and there. You'll be surprised that they are in fact catching prawns that thrives on the beaches. These prawns bury themselves in the sands so these people use the rods with hooks on the ends to fish the prawns out. It's cool to watch this! I highly recommend watching the sunset there. The red skies with the sight of the full circle sun sinking on the horizon is simply breathtaking.
