How do you know it’s fall/autumn when you live in Singapore? Well you go to Starbucks and you find out if they have started to offer Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Plus I found TWO brown leaves on my walk to aforementioned Starbucks, so definitely fall season.
I also double checked on my google calendar and northern hemisphere has indeed entered fall/autumn season!)

Thank you Bandar Seri Begawan. We had a nice little visit and it was interesting to see where some of my expat friends spent a few years their expat assignment. Glad it wasn’t for a look see visit for a future assignment for me ;-).

This is entrance of Istana Nurul Iman (Palace of the Light of Faith), the official residence of the sultan. It is one of the largest habitations of any sort in the world – more than four times the size of the Palace of Versailles with 200,000 m2 (2,152,782 square feet!)

A few numbers:
The palace contains 1,788 bedrooms, 257 bathrooms, a banquet hall that can be expanded to accommodate up to 5,000 guests, a mosque accommodating 1,500 people. The palace also includes a 110-car garage, an air conditioned stable for the Sultan’s 200 polo ponies, and 5 swimming pools.

Jame’Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque during the day.
When I went to visit it was closed to non Muslim.
It’s a beautiful mosque from the outside with a lot of details. I’m sure it’s beautiful inside too.
