You will only understand this post if you live or have ever lived in Brunei, or have read my previous blog regularly - but one of the things we need to do when we get out of Brunei, is shop. Big time shop. One of the shops that Tash (and I repeat: Tash) wanted to go to when she came here was... IKEA!
Obvious choice really! They have everything, you don't need to go
anywhere else, it's cheap and good value for money.
Tash and the kids
has a total of a 90 kg bagage allowance going back, and she's making sure
she's utilizing it nicely having bought bed sheets, curtains, lamps etc.
It might seem weird to people who live in places where there is proper
shopping, that you would be prepared to lug all this all across the world; but for our peeps in Brunei, this is completely normal
out-of-Brunei behaviour! (Especially when your husband doesn't go shopping with you otherwise... ;)
No visit to IKEA would be complete without a hot dog combo and a soft ice after job well done!
