Sandakan Trip

We drove to Sandakan during the weekend for a 3Days 2Nights trip. I had some shopping spree in Sandakan ! I bought my tuna tin ayam brand ! which is really cheap! I bought 10 tins. I mean 3.90 as compared to 4.50 / 4.70 in KK, even just a few cents difference, well, at least I'm happy that my tuna are cheaper ! I bought some cheap nice imported Tops! I feel like I m staying at Brunei, but gooing down to Miri for weekend shopping.

After coming back from Sandakan, I decide to carry lots of celery and carrot stickss in my pocket anytime to remind me of 'detoxification' . A Strong word to remind myself that I had too much of prawns and pork during these short trip. my body is full of acidy now!
Here are some very distinctively good dishes I must bring to your attention, ur stomach's attention what I mean ;p

"Kam-Heong" fried prawn. Deep fried prawn with curry leave and cut cillies & Garlic. Very Good! The prawns are so fresh and big , and it is so crispy !

Dark soya Squid! Heavy Wok Breath and is tender to chew ! The sauce is the key taste here.

and the above 2 dishes u can eat at Jalan Sim Sim, The 8th Bridge. The good about this place is, U can pick your own fresh-catch seafood, and tell the chef how u want to be cooked. That's what we did.
Look at this pic. The left side where a lady with an apron, is an area of selling fresh-catch seafood ! so they are just next to each other. pick ur order, and find ur seat , ready to be served.

This is braised pork rib. In cantonese, is called " Qing-Haul" kuat. Very special name, very special meat to eat. ha ha ha
Deep Fried Prawn with Egg Yolk + Curry leave. Very Very Very nice.

These 2 dishes are from a shop named " Ga-Fan" restaurant, near IJM area.
I eat a lot, but I didnt take much photos, considering most pic are taken at nite, or during day time, relatives eating with us, u feel awkward when taking picture. Like the pork picture that I took, a guy which sitting at few tables away, immediately came and ask why taking photo? what is so special about the dish? U get what I mean???????????????????? I feel like telling him off don't be so Kampung !!!
