This is a wonderful card sent by  Dilyana. Thank you so much! I love the card 😀 Dilyana has a very good blog of her own. You should check it out!

Well, this card shows the biggest mosque in Brunei! Look at the golden rooftops, are they not just beautiful!?!

Did you know? The Malay name of the country is Negara Brunei Darussalam, which means ‘Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace’. Brunei is the most observant Islamic nation in Southeast Asia.

I send love!
