Trip down memory lane

I was taken down memory lane when I read the Flashback page of the Weekend Bulletin on February 1 as it reminded me of when I first came to Brunei Darussalam for work in 1970.

Reading the article, ‘Memories of a Kampong Ayer Girl’, I was filled with nostalgia and tickled with amusement.

From my own memory, I recalled making a monthly visit to an Indian barber shop that used to stand on the site that now houses the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex.

I do hope that Kampong Ayer will continue to be an inspiration to the young and old, despite the signs of modernity that are overtaking it.
