Kampung Buli Sim Sim

Today I spent the morning eating “Kon Lou Min”, the best breakfast ever in the world at Mile 1.5 market. I can eat this everyday.

Then, we went to Kampung Buli Sim Sim, I think I’ve blogged about this before but it’s alright. No harm repeating. This is a village where houses are built on stilts. I went to this one house which is the furthest towards the sea than the other houses. They sell fish. The boat goes up to the sea and comes back with fish, crabs, prawns and etc. So, you usually get fresh seafood several times in an hour or so. I was sitting on the bench, enjoying the sea breeze and watching the guys carrying bags of fishes and pouring them out.

This is where my mum gets her seafood. And next to this place is a restaurant, a simple wooden house. So what you do is you pick your fish and you eat next door.

I’ve always loved eating at shabby places. The kind that looks a bit dirty yet you know it’s clean. I don’t know how to explain this but I hope you know what I mean.

The only thing I did while I was in Sandakan is EAT. Seriously, that is the best thing one can do when you’re here. Just eat.

For dinner, we went to Ocean King Seafood Restaurant, and this is by the sea too. Very very crowded tonight. We had dinner with my parent’s friends and their friends. I don’t know half of them but then I was there only for the food. hehehe.
