*surfaces for air*

I've just come back from a 2-day trip to Sandakan, to visit a fish farm there which is going for listing soon. To say that we had a relaxed schedule is a severe understatement--a lot of time was spent sitting around waiting to be served food, or drinking tea by the hatching ponds, or staring out at the serene Sulu Sea from the deck of the company's 'office block'. Us city bumpkins went through a crash course on the process of rearing marine fish for consumption... some of which look too beautiful to eat. Photos to follow.

Now it's back to the reality of my office cubicle. I don't know how to model a fish farm's financials on a spreadsheet.

Wah~ Welcome to my ulu hometown! It’s a shame that I wasn’t back home otherwise I could have been your tour guide and intro you to some of the best SDK cuisines.

BTW, were you impressed by our lil tiny airport? LOL.

Heheh, Sandakan is really something to experience–life there is soooooo laid-back that it’s unreal. The airport really reminds me of Penang’s, only at one third the size. :)) At least people don’t have to trek too far to get from one spot to the next, unlike KLIA. As for the fish, well, we had LOADS of the stuff to eat. Groupers and snappers were sashimied, deep fried, steamed, and braised with all kinds of sauces, all of which were tasty! What kind of food would you have liked to introduce to a KL city bumpkin?

Must get those photos up soon…

Thin noodles with fried pork, char siew, dumplings, home made fish balls etc for breaky -> the gravy itself is a trade secret, nobody’s able to emulate the taste, and so far I haven’t eaten any tastier noodles in KL, Singapore, Perth or Sydney.

Oh yeah..not to mention crabs, prawns and lobsters! Alright alright I better stop talking about them cos I’m starving right now…gotta put up with drinking Campbell’s Chicken n Corn soup 😛
