I Love Kuala Belait.. KB Baybeee!

I added a new link, KB Happenings. Just as the name says, the site tells of happenings in Kuala Belait showing it is indeed not a ghost town! Then thought it would make it more fun to include this. Original lyric and song written and sung by Raymond Crooke , who's part of The Belaiters (pronounced The Blighters hehe)

Go ahead and sing to the lyrics!hehehe (Lyrics taken from here)

Driving down the road from Jerudong
Don't just stop when you reach Tutong.
With a little bit of luck you might
Make it all the way to Kuala Belait.

...I'm going back to KB, baby.
...That's where I want to be,
...Where the teapot sits on the roundabout
...And the donkey nods at me.

In the middle of the city we've got Jalan Pretty.
That's where all the action is at night.
You can have a lot of fun in Bandar Sri Begawan
But you can't beat Kuala Belait.

...I'm going back to KB, baby.
...That's where I want to be,
...Where the teapot sits on the roundabout
...And the donkey nods at me.
...Bandar Seri Begawan
...Is not the place for everyone.
...'Cause I love - that's right -
...I love Kuala Belait.

This city is expanding at a furious pace.
New buildings going up all over the place
The High Court will open - one of these days.
(Spoken: Well ... it might.)
I love Kuala Belait.
We've got plenty of rice and the noodles are nice.
This town is a gourmet's delight.
You can't go wrong with roti kosong
At New Akbar in Kuala Belait.

In KB town you can watch the sun go down
Sitting on the sand at night.
See the oil rigs burning bright, while the sand flies bite.
On the beach at Kuala Belait.
Let me make this clear -- I really like Seria
The billionth barrel is a wonderful site,
But nothing can compare with the excitement in the air
In downtown Kuala Belait.
