    Eventhough KB has completely changed in appearance since my days of youthful exuberance, one thing has not changed: The Market. it still looks and smells the same. Frech vegetables and fresh fish from the river and the sea..

    Journey up the Belait River

    Look for this man at the Ferry terminal in KB, he will agree to take you along sungei seri terban to kampong and also up the river to the remote village. I paid him 10 bnd for a tour of the kampong and sungei in his motorboat from this side of KB and he dropped me off where he picked me up. and the boat seats four people comfortably and it would be a nice trip up the river for a small group

    Nypa Fruiticans, found in abundance in Borneo and also in other parts of south east asia. this palm has its roots and trunk under the water and only the leaves show over the water level. a pleasant sight indeed.

    Street of my childhood

    Felt saudade and strangely nostalgic walking down the street where our house used to be, now paved over. the street now is called jalan maulana but i remember it by an english name.
    it was good to remember my father, olav ha shalom, who used to walk every morning to his job at the old BSP Hospital.. and the patients who would come in the evening with their meagre gifts: fresh vegies, fish etc from the market to consult him at home.

    belait beach

    This beach has a special significance for me. It was just a few meters away from our wooden home on stilts. you woke up to the waves slapping on the shore and in the evenings i would go for long walks along the beach. No one bathes and before the beach was sealed off to the west, we could walk all the way to the mouth of the river.
    on this visit, i saw well manicured garden near the beach and many couples just sitting watching the sunset..

    Charter a boat

    Water Taxi, Belait river
    1 more image

    It is possible to charter a motorised canoe at the Belait river crossing. You can do a short journey upriver or go on a scenic tour. It's an interesting way to get around anyway. The water taxis seat about ten people. You'll need to negotiate the fee with the driver and give advance notice. The fee to get across the river is less than B$0.50 so I can't imagine it costing that much for a one or two hour charter if you are sharing the costs with others.

    If you are interesting in yachting on the open sea, contact the Kuala Belait Boat Club on the number below.
