If you drink alcohol..........
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A good insect repellant is needed if you are staying by the waterways, or will be crossing over them at dawn or dusk in particular. Lots of mossies and other unidentified flying biters.
Mind you, if you have enough alcohol on board you may not need repellant!
Miscellaneous: You will need to bring in any alcohol you want to drink while you are in Brunei (or take a trip to Malaysia) which may or may not suit....
There are generous amounts of alcohol permitted into the country by non-Muslims.Related to:

With all this digital equipment it is important to have fully charged batteries all the time! And I have to say that went perfectly during my trip.
I Brunei they use 240 volts and 50 Hz. It is a rectangular blade plug (see picture)
Beware : an adapter by itself will not change the electrical voltage. You must be sure that your appliance can handle different voltages (either automatically or through a voltage switch). If it can't, you will need a voltage converter.
Digital camera + portable harddisk
Two things that are a must in my travel bag and that is my digital camera and my new 'toy' the X's-Drive Pro (a portable hard disk)
This has been the first trip I took the X's Drive Pro with me and I am amazed by it! I don't think I want to travel ever again without it, LOL :-))
This little gadget is a portable hard drive where I can store all my digital pics on while I travel. No chances of running out of memory card anymore. No more thinking if I 'should' or 'shouldn't' take a picture, because the memory card is running full. It has a capacity of around 40,000 pictures that I can store, hahaha, and that is more than enough.... even for me ;-)
The use is easy which is a great advantage. It only takes a few minutes to upload the photos from the digital camera. It has a rechargeable battery, so you don't need to be plugged in to the electricity net to use it. And all I need to be taking care of during my travels, is keeping the batteries charged of this wonderful thingy and of my digital camera :-)
Packing List 2
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear clothing that covers your shoulders and your legs. You will not be permitted in the mosque unless you are properly dressed. When we were there, one of the men from our ship showed up in running shorts. He was descended upon and enveloped in a heavy robe-- and it was hot, hot, hot.
Miscellaneous: Remember to carry a water bottle with you.
Also, bring toilet tissue in your tote bag. You will need it.
Packing List 1
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you have flat shoes with you. It is impossible to walk through the stilt villages in high heels.
