On 19 November 2011...

This is also my last day in Brunei Darussalam.

My host mum knew I didn't get to eat amboyat (sago starch) during the open house on 17 November. So she made it just for me. It was pure white starch. I wad clueless when she gave me a bamboo fork for I have never seen such food! Host dad demonstrated to me and buddy. He dipped the fork into the starch and twist (like candy floss on a stick). I did the same thing and popped into my mouth.

I chewed. The sensation was new to me. As I was trying to figure out its texture, dad was already scolding me "OI! You don't chew, you swallow!". Yikes? I swallowed the next ball of starch onwards. It slid my throat smoothly. Brrrr...

Ahh.... It was an interesting experience. And I was told to finish the big bowl of starch. HAHAHA. And I did with some chili squid dish.

After finishing the ambuyat, my host parents drove us to the port. During the journey, my host parents kept on saying they do not wish us to return to the ship, and how they will keep us in Brunei. My buddy and I just looked into each other eyes with an expression that read "You must be kidding me!"

Spinoff: We reached the port safely by a few minutes late. HAHA. Host dad gave each of us a compact mirror and a cap as souvenir. His daughter gave us stationery from her company. I love them! Thank you!
