A really nice receptionist told me that it was USD 140 but thanks to a special promotion available just on that day I could have the same room for USD 130!

Melati is the same age as my Stevie, and she used to come to the playgroup I ran from my house when I lived in Brunei. She could still remember some of the games we played! But she's now a very beautiful and together young woman and it was so lovely to catch up with her again. She works in Seria, at the other end of the country, but her fiancee is in Bandar, ...
