Last part of Sibu trip.
This is definitely what you can’t see daily if you don’t live here. These large boats are known as floating supermarkets which serve the rural communities along the river. Very interesting right? Again, my first time seeing such thing!
The 114-year old Sibu Eng Ann Teng Tua Peh Kong temple in Sibu is located beside the river. Too bad the pagoda is closed to public.
Left: Part of the skyline of Sibu from the river.
Right: This is a nice place to observe the river activities with very nice sunset view too. Located next to the temple. Surprisingly, the place is very clean and well-maintained even though it’s quite seclude behind the temple. If it’s in Kuching, I cannot imagine how filthy the place is gonna be with human waste, rubbish and so on.
Another view from the riverbank.
Left: Containers were being loaded onto the ship.
Right: I assume this should a fishing boat.
Left: At night, it rained. I went dinner with my friend instead of going with the travel companions. Wanted to eat steamboat but couldn’t find any parking. So we decided to go somewhere else. The famous Hong Fu Seafood (Jalan Wong King Huo, 96000 Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia).
Left: Midin with belacan. The balacan wasn’t that nice.
Left: Mani cai with salted egg yolk. My gosh! It’s so tasty! Never eat mani cai this way. The saltiness of the yolk went well with the vegetable.
Right: Hmmm… I forgot what’s this. I think it’s pork with salted fish. Not bad too. Never know pork can go with salted fish.
I’m not sure how much in total for this dinner as I didn’t pay for it. Was quite a lovely dinner, finally got to catch up with friend who I’ve not seen for more than 10 years!
The next morning, it’s time for us to head to Mukah and Bintulu.
Left: Before that, we went for breakfast at Aho Mee Sapi Nasi Ayam Restoran which is located opposite of Wisma Sanyan. This eatery is halal.
Right: Roti canai special (RM4), so filling! I couldn’t finish it. There’s beef and big onion in there along with other spices, not your blank roti canai. It’s very filling, I couldn’t finish it. I found that the spices was a bit too overwhelming for me. A bit regret ordered this.
Left: Surprisingly, banana and roti canai (RM3) could go well together. Eat it with the curry, it’s a great combination of sweet, salty, and a little spice.
Right: If not mistaken, this is their mee golok daging lembu aka dry beef noodle (RM3.50). Malay style of course.
After breakfast, we started our very bumpy car ride to Mukah. To be continued…
