Ambuvat, Brunei’s traditional food [Battle Trip / 2017.05.21]

Published by Darron Toy on

– We’re here. / – Brunei! Brunei! Brunei! First, I need to get a SIM card. It’s right in front of us. – They sell them here. / – I need a SIM card. Just one. Just one is fine. The rest of you don’t need a SIM card? – We already applied for roaming. / – We did. Okay. – How much is it? / – It’s about 10 Singapore dollars. That amounts to about $8. Does that mean it’s only $8 for 4 days? That’s only about $2 a day. Why did we apply for roaming? It’s $10 per day. This one’s for 4 days? – Valid for 1 week. / – 1 week? – Yes. / – 1 week? That’s good. Okay. – Thank you so much. Thank you. / – Thank you. There was no point in applying for roaming. What the? How can it be $8 for a week? – Gosh. That’s a must. / – You need a SIM card. In Korea, it’s $10 per day for roaming. – That’s right. / – $10 a day. – But it’s pretty much $5 for a whole week. / – Yeah. – Then… / – The data works well? – That’s a good tip. / – Yeah. How do we get to the hotel? There’s a hotel shuttle that comes to the airport. It’s probably that white vehicle over there. – That one? / – It’s written there. – Let’s get in. / – It feels like an icebox inside. – An icebox? / – Yes, it’s an icebox. – It’s so cool. / – So cool. – Sorry. / – Fuel is cheap here… We have finally arrived. I’ve never been to a 7-star hotel. Well, they should have at least 4 beds, right? – And around 4 bathrooms. / – They seem excited. If they really sleep at this 7-star hotel, it would be the best accommodation on the show so far. That’s right. – Gosh. / – This is amazing. It’s about the size of Eddy’s house. – It was incredible. / – It’s a little bigger than my house. Those are all gold trimmings. – That’s all gold? / – That’s amazing. We have to live in a place like this later. But how is this place $280 a night? Does it make sense? Did we come to the wrong place? For the 3 of us, it was $280 a night. I’m full of expectation. They don’t have a retina scanner? – Gosh. It’s so cold. / – Gosh. – You really slept there? / – Retina scanner? The hotel has so many rooms. It’s not that room, right? Right? – We imagined this would be it. / – Imagine it. (An incredible room that suits a 7-star status) (But they’re actually sleeping in the twin room) The overall design… This is excessive for Battle Trip. It’s really excessive. We’ve never even slept at a 7-star hotel. There must be a separate room. – There must be something more. / – Here is a door. It’s right here. I’ll hit the sack first. – Jaejung. / – You punk. There is an extra bed here in the middle. – Jaejung took the proper bed. / – Jaejung, over here. But really, I’m not lying. My legs stick out. (This is the sad truth of having long legs) I didn’t do much today. I don’t deserve this kind of bed. (♪ We were called to Brunei ♪) (♪ We were all called to Brunei ♪) – We just sang it. / – That’s so funny. It’s already so fun. (2-day schedule in Brunei) Hey, Eddy. Hey, Eddy. (What?) I got up first. Roy, your body is very… (Oh, no) (Oh, my God) This isn’t right. Sejeong, close your eyes. (They run to the pool as soon as they wake up) The hotel is so nice. Wow… (They escape the heat by diving into the pool) Look so fun. That looks so much fun. (He doesn’t know how to swim) How embarrassing. (Gosh, it’s deep) – So embarrassing. / – Who’s that? This is heaven. (Roy and Jaejung are excited like elementary kids) (Eddy is keeping his distance) (Why isn’t he having fun?) – But why is it so empty? / – There were no people. Really? – It was just us. / – We were the only ones there. – It was just you in that wide place? / – Amazing. I dropped the camera. (Save me) You look cool. (He doesn’t have a care in the world) (They head out to have a city tour) Gosh. It’s so nice. It’s here. – It’s here. / – Is this the car? – It’s here! / – Is this the car? It’s so small and cute. – It’s affordable. / – There aren’t that many taxis. It’d be best if you rent a car. There are only 42 taxis in Brunei. That’s a very small number. This feels so strange. Can you play a song that suits this drive? I know this song. How much is the fuel? – The fuel… / – It said 50 cents. – 50 cents for petrol. / – 50 cents. 50 cents per liter. Diesel was 30 cents. – Brunei is a very compact place. / – It is. Please focus on the road. We’ll sing the song, so you drive. (♪ I’ll shake it off with a drink from the tumbler ♪) (♪ I’m going to love myself more ♪) Where are you headed? – We went to eat ambuyat. / – It’s traditional food. We were on our way to try traditional food. The food was to my liking. – I looked some up, too. / – I looked everything up. I went for local foods, completely organic. – So what are we eating? / – Organic. – Organic. / – It called ambuyat, a traditional food. – Ambuyat? / – It’s a bit like flour. – What’s that? / – It’s interesting, right? – Is it like rice cake? / – What is that? You dip it in sauce… How good would it be? Brunei locals really enjoy ambuyat. – It’s very traditional. / – It kind of looks like… – The glue used for wallpaper. / – I know. – It’s like glue. / – You’re right. During the World War… – It was eaten by Brunei fighters. / – It’s fascinating. That’s very fascinating. – It was meant to be filling. / – I’ve never seen it before. They ate to fill their stomachs during war time. (It is my turn to shine as a translator) (He travelled a rugged road to become a master) (Malay, simple greeting) I see Jaejung has a talent for language. He was in charge of language. A native. What is he saying? He’s amazing. Why are you so good? (Terima Kasih means thank you) So, why are you putting your hand up? It says that you shouldn’t put out your left hand. You can’t use your left hand? You can’t point at things with your left hand… – You can’t point. / – You can’t touch things either. You shouldn’t use your left hand at all. Really? So, that’s what ambuyat looks like. It’s fascinating. – That’s how it’s eaten. / – Everyone is right-handed. It’s wrapped up pretty thick. Is that mackerel? – Oh, yes. / – Corvina, corvina, corvina. – What could it be? / – Yes. I was really hungry. That looks good. – It’s here. / – It’s ambuyat. – Thank you. / – Thank you. – Thank you. / – That’s the ambuyat meal. – It’s made of starch? / – Yes, it is. – Is that it? / – It’s really unique. Yes, it’s very unique. – It really is special. / – I’m most curious about this. Shall we give it a try? Try it. – You’re good. / – You do it like this. Just watch. You pull it like this from below… – It’s pretty difficult. / – Watch. It keeps falling right back down. – It’s very hard. / – It’s really hard. – It keeps disappearing. / – It stretches. – How long will you keep this up? / – How is it done? They’re watching. This is hard. – Okay. / – You did it. You guys try, then. Even this is hard. – Watch and learn. / – Yeah. (It all seems similar when the chopsticks go in) It’s not working. (Focusing) – Hold on. / – I don’t get it. – Even if you keep trying. / – What if we can’t taste it? – There we go. / – What is that? – I did it. / – No way. – I beat you. / – I’m curious about the taste. – I’m very curious. / – I’m so curious. – And since it’s very hot… / – It looks fun. Wait a minute. Wow, this guy… He’s such a failure. (Failing miserably) (How does ambuyat, Brunei’s traditional food, taste?) The starch itself is tasteless. – There’s no taste. / – In my opinion… – It’s like gelatin. / – That’s right. – What does the sauce taste like? / – It’s pretty good. The sauce is made with mango and durian. – Mango? / – So it’s sweet? It kind of has the taste of pickled Korean fish. – Is it the durian? / – Yes. – This is hard. / – Don’t you dip it in this? They ate this in wartime to get full. During wartime. That’s how it became a traditional dish. In our lifetime, eating something that looks like this and has this taste… – You can’t anywhere else. / – If it’s not ambuyat… You’d never taste it. It looks good. I’ve tried this. It’s like a side dish. It’s kind of like shepherd’s purse bean paste stew. – Shepherd’s purse? / – It’s good to dip in that. – I see. / – Shepherd’s purse bean paste stew? – It tastes like that. / – It does. That’s good. – It’s like bean paste stew. / – Yeah. – It’s like bean paste stew? / – Bean paste stew… These are chives, right? Huh? No, they’re not chives. – They’re dried radish greens. / – Dried radish greens. That looks good, too. It can’t be pork though. – It’s like stir-fried pork. / – It was like intestines… – That was good. / – It had that texture. That looks like duck. (Chomp) It’s not bad. It kind of tastes like pork bone soup. You can’t exchange Brunei currency. I’m curious to see how much it all cost. Singapore dollars. I’ve never seen such a bill. All these bills portray the monarch. – I see. / – The sultan’s face… It’s very hard to acquire Brunei currency. – You can’t exchange it from Korean won. / – Yeah. You have to exchange it for Singapore dollars first. Then only when you get your change… You can see this.

Yaa i'm from brunei country thanks for it.
I hope u guys visit brunei.

Random Girl Passing By · May 15, 2018 at 8:15 pm

Rule #1. You shouldn't chew the ambuyat. 😂

And the best explanation for the left hand thingy is that, you are still allowed to use your left hand. It is not some kind of superstitious thingy or cultural appropriation. For muslims, we are following the 'sunnah' of our Prophet Muhammad PBUH to eat using the right hand and to only use your left hand when you're cleaning your private area (using water) after pooping or peeing. But if you're a left handed person, that is so fine. Bruneians call the right hand as tangan school hehehe. Mana2 yang lebih expert, please correct me okay? Thank you. 😊

BUDDY the Musk Lorikeet of Revesby NSW Australia · February 10, 2019 at 6:26 am

Was my second home for 8 years… peaceful place. Love it. Food and everything are cheap because it tax free country. Brunei $ is 1:1 with Singapore $. If you travel oversea simply walk in to any bank or money change to swap your Brunei $ to S$.

LeoKeE _18 · February 17, 2019 at 11:50 am

If anyone wants to come to Brunei for a vacation or visit your guys can find me. since i live in Brunei. i can bring you around. Just dm me through Instagram (LeoKee_18)

Hello people~ I'm bruneian😊 and I'm proud of it😁 I'm really surprise that many people love to go to Brunei. Try to go to Bandar Yayasan, Kampong Ayer. Pasar Malam Gadong also there's alot of best food i think they start open around 3pm until night. And the food price cheaper starting $1. Kiulap is one of the best area f you guys want to enjoy any foods. I would like to thank you to KBS to promote my country to all around the world. Thank You very much😘
