There is always a lot going on here in Brunei. In fact, you can be as busy as you have time to be - there is parties, coffee mornings, exercise groups to join and other happenings all the time.
Tonight some ladies had arranged a "Festive Evening" at my friend Anna's house. They had invited for glögg (Swedish mulled wine), Santa punch, mince pies and other Christmas delicacies and while you were enjoying the nibbles you could peruse the "stalls".
There are many talented ladies here, that use their spare time on making small business of their handicraft. Tonight f.e you could buy homemade pate, Christmas puddings and other goodies, handmade jewellery, hand-sewn tunics, clothes, bags and shoes; framed photographs and paintings, furniture and many other things.
It was a really nice evening, nice to have a browse and a chat, and get in to the Christmas spirit a bit!
