Tamu Kianggeh Walkabout

This morning the Royal Brunei Armed Forces celebrated their 48th anniversary. At first I actually wanted to go to Rimba Air Based where the celebration was held but thinking of the shuttling transport from Sekolah Menengah Rimba to the Air Base was quite a hassle for me, so I changed my mind and went to Tamu Kianggeh instead. I arrived at Tamu Kianggeh about 7:30 am after a few times driving around Bandar Seri Begawan seeking for a parking.

Tamu Kianggeh is what I can describe as a place where we can get most of our  daily needs from fresh seafood to dried products such as dried prawns or dried anchovies. Brunei traditional delicacies are also available there such as ardam, kuih cincin, bahulu, kuih cacah, tilapam etc. Traditional medicine are also available there.

As usual early in the morning Tamu Kianggeh is packed with people getting the groceries, fresh fish, prawns and etc. I was thinking to myself, how early did the people come to start their business.  While snapping around, a flash back memory when I was a small boy, where I usually follow my father to the tamu. This memory felt so fresh as if it just happened a few days ago. Actually it was about 20 years ago or probably more. Well time sure flies so fast. I might be going there in the future to catch the early birds starting their business.

 

According to this author 

History also stated that around 1980’s, Tamu Kianggeh was used to be visited by Queen Elizabeth twice and so did her son, Prince Charles.
