If you are looking for a holiday in one of the world's most unspoilt eco-friendly environments, then look no further than the Temburong National Park, deep in the rainforests of Borneo, right in the middle of Brunei.
And to get the best view of this unspoilt rain forest, you have to climb a total of 780 wooden steps. I did, albeit with lots of breaks and rests. Now, many of you will remember that in the early eighties, the sultan of Brunei, adjudged to be the richest man in the world then, used to be very visible in both print and electronic media.
His father abdicated the throne and made him sultan at the age of 22. Not anymore, because the sultan has gracefully aged and become wiser not to bother about such things anymore. That was when I first heard of the Sultanate of Brunei. Little did I know then, that I would pay a visit to the country some 30 years or so after. So you see, if people were just to relax, keep cool and take things easy, everything that's destined to be theirs will come their way, and most importantly, stress free. But this doesn't mean not working for, or towards, what you aspire for.
