Morning Rays Through Seria Mee Stall Skylight Window

Possibly A Great Vantage Point For A Tourism-centric Mural

Residents in the Belait district especially those in Seria have in the past year or so seen how an empty land adjacent to the Oil & Gas Discovery Centre (OGDC) slowly morphed into what it is today. Out of town friends have heard about the development of a certain “state of the art 3D cinema” but nothing more. Having ventured as close to the finished attraction as possible including a peek at the 24 lane bowling alley, I know it’s a matter of time before the long awaited entertainment hub becomes a reality. Two movie theatres, Cinema 1 and 2, occupy the left and right side (the two white exterior walls). The first thing that struck me was those walls need a shot of art — like a mural.

“A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. A particularly distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture.” — Wikipedia

Saturday mornings are sacred. I try not to schedule or accept assignments on weekends so I get to spend the morning dropping off Jamie and Jewel at school before our weekly shopping at the Seria tamu fresh market. On rare occasions when work beckons rather unavoidably, I get pretty upset about missing the one day of the week I get to do things together with my wife not forgetting to mention also, missing my weekly workout with my badminton buddies.

There are basically only 3 places where we have our breakfast on Saturdays: Nam Wah, Soi Heng for their Sambal Fried Kway Teow or the old wet market where I have heavenly Teochew fried noodles. On Sundays, breakfast with the kids include Universal Cafe (also in Seria) for their one-of-a-kind signature Cheezy French Toast.

My favourite Nam Wah's Fried Kway Teow with Beef and the right amount of sauce.
It was a theme morning for us as she ordered the equally tempting Kolo Kway Teow instead.
