Here, the village's centuries-old web of homes, markets, mosques, schools,
medical clinics and police and fire stations hovers on stilts over the shallows of
Brunei River. Even today, water taxis are the most efficient and popular means of
negotiating the Kampung's labyrinthine waterways. From their prows, one could see
the mosque's glistening minarets rising above multi-hued, garden-draped homes.
