Anthony and I agreed to meet for breakfast and this time, I chose where I thought breakfast by the beach would be a good start to a quiet Friday morning but that was not to be (restaurant is closed during Ramadan hours). Not letting this little setback ruin the morning, we instinctively headed further up to the “Hilton”, a popular non-Halal eatery in Sungai Liang frequented by locals and expatriates alike (never quite figured out how it earned its nickname though). The last time both of us had coffee here was when we ventured into the Labi forest for pictures of “Somboi-Somboi” pitcher plants.
Where is this Palmetum Garden, I hear you ask? For those of you in the Belait district who regularly trek in the forest of the Sungai Liang Recreational Forest Park would instantly recognise this area that has been developing quietly. Curious, we stopped by to see what it’s about little did we realize we were able to step into a butterfly sanctuary that’s also a nursery.
All photographs captured using the Canon PowerShot G11.
The best thing I did today is remembering to bring my Canon Powershot G11 with me. Would have kicked myself silly had I left it at home.—
