Brunei…OMG Another 4 weeks..

More pertinent to the title…another 4 WEEKENDS..

Ok I just finished my first weekend here…let me rephrase that..I just SURVIVED my first weekend here.

That’s what it felt like anyone, I was left feeling like my sanity was only hanging on by an almost translucently fine thread..

If I have to spent another weekend in that ghost house I think I might well go insane..

Ok my options for entertainment here are:

  • Read (I have a limited amount of books)
  • Watch TV (There are only about 6 channels)
  • Watch DVD’s (I rarely get chance to go out and buy any)
  • Go on-line (Prepaid net access, which keeps running out…and it’s DIALUP)
  • Stare at the floor/wall/ceiling (My primary pass-time)
  • Smoke (A LOT)
  • Wonder why the hell I am here..
  • Think (Also a lot…not such a good thing at the moment)
  • Read (Did I already mention that?…)

And well that’s about it..I manage to get the cinema occasionally..and mostly eat at the same salty Indian joint every day….which is nothing to shout about

Well I grabbed some DVD’s last week, I watched Calcium Kid[/url], with Orlando Bloom[/url] over the weekend..Actually a pretty decent film, even with the mockney accents, and super cliched characters. It was pretty accurate of the South London boxing scene..and funny in places, although not a touch on Snatch[/url] or Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels[/url] (Both legendary films, yes Guy Ritchie[/url] is a genius…even though he married Madonna).

The guys in the class said we can’t really go out at the moment because it’s still Ramadan[/url], so they have to take it easy for a while. A quick summary for those of you that don’t know, Ramadan is a month of fasting for those of the Islamic faith:

It is during this month that Muslims observe the Fast of Ramadan. Lasting for the entire month, Muslims fast during the daylight hours and in the evening eat small meals and visit with friends and family. It is a time of worship and contemplation. A time to strengthen family and community ties.

On another note, I tried the KFC here, and it sucks. Fatty to the bone..

On a completely different note, I tried the new DOTA 4.4[/url] and OMG it actually ROCKS. Thanks quantum, you are the king baby. New characters are sweet, may need a little bit of balancing…that tree dude is a crazy seiger man, what with that monkey poot Twizm tree business AND his summons AND his obscene amount of armour at level 7. But anyway I recommend you try it…it kinda rocks my socks.

Hmm what else oh yeah…I managed to make it out of the house last night…and I watched Shark Tale[/url], that’s some pretty funny shiznit. Honestly it’s got nothing on Shrek[/url] or Monsters Inc[/url]…but well it’s worth passing an hour or so…especially here..

I brought some games here to play aswell….just started with Hitman[/url] after my single players DOTA[/url] extravaganza..OMFG that game is hard…it pwns me.

It took me like 8 goes to get past the first stage…about 25 to get past the second stage and I still haven’t done the 3rd stage..

It’s sneaky, you have to think have to drag bodies into drains, shoot people from certain sides so they fall into holes and various other Hitman like activitives. All in all pretty entertaining..but damn bloody difficult. I also brought Hitman 2 along…so if I get bored I can try that 🙂

I think that’s all for now..
