Oh. Have I mentioned about it being the last day? If not let me just say that Sunday 8th August 2010 we only have a few more hours to explore and by 4 pm we were already taking off.
Originally I wanted to write this article with every picture taken compared against simulated terrains produced by the programme Google Earth using satellite pictures.
But after preparing and writing 10 articles so far today I felt too tired to do that.
So let these pictures suffice. At this juncture we were following the coastal path from Tutong to Seria on to Kuala Belait.
Here we could already see Kuala Belait, the westernmost town of Brunei with a snaking river in the background, the river Baram being part of the Malaysian state of Sarawak.
Down below we could see oil platforms and ships.
Ah. The mouth of the Baram river, an area called Kuala Baram is already in view. The city of Miri should be in the middle of this picture.
From here onwards the plane started to directly cross the South China Sea.
It was only sometime later that I began to see land.
This came in the form of the Indonesian islands known as Natuna kecil, the smaller Natuna.
According to the maps there should be a bigger Natuna island before but I seemed to have missed it. Luckily I didn't miss the popular Malaysia island called Pulau Tioman.
It was not long before we enter the airspace of Peninsular Malaysia.
At this juncture I could see we were crossing the main mountain range of Banjaran Titiwangsa somewhere near the Negeri Sembilan state capital, Seremban.
Soon we could see the Straits of Melaka in the background. This means we were about to land. Enough stories from the Brunei trip ya! Hope everyone enjoyed what have been dished so far. :]
