Visit to Kampong Tamoi Ujong aka Water Village

Preparing to board the long boat to Kampong Tamoi Ujong

Before boarding
During boarding
Full house!

View on the way to the Water Village

Heavens smiling down on us on the way to the village :) 

A view of the Brunei Palace golden dome
Alighting the long boat 

The grand entrance of Kampong Tamoi Ujong
 The warm welcome we received from the residents at the Water Village
Mdm Azizah and Mr Johari - so glad to be on 'solid' ground! 
See the happy smiles! [perhaps because of the sumptuous local delicacies laid out for us by our gracious host]

The Penghala of Kampong Tamoi Ujong. 

The Penghala and his wife making sure we were well attended to. Note the photograph-adorned walls - a testament of the Penghala's gracious hospitality in opening his house to all and sundry. School of Science and Technology, Singapore is humbled to be amongst worldwide dignitaries, notwithstanding VVIPs such as the Queen of Netherlands and former US President Clinton as well as the late former South African President Nelson Mandela

Mr Johari presenting a token of appreciation to the Penghala
Happy faces all around!

Traditional musical instruments for us to try out

More traditional cakes for us to try out

After eating, got to exercise, right? So 'joget' session for all of us led by one of the ladies from the village.

Thanks for the memories!
