What's so special about Mukah?

Back to my last post where I ended it half way, I'm gonna continue and share about the specialties in Mukah. Just a short one btw.

#1. Sparrows

It's normal to see sparrows everywhere in Mukah and even Bintulu but not anywhere else especially during evening time. Little did you know that people actually earn a fortune out of these creatures' nests! A kilo of bird nest can cost up to 4k! You can see a number of birdhouses along to road to Mukah and Dalat.

#2. Fresh & cheap seafood

I had these big ass prawns for my supper during my first night in Mukah :3 I don't think I should elaborate more on this pfft

#3 Umai

Just so you know, Umai is thinly sliced raw fish marinated with ‘assam paya’, a very sour fruit of a wild palm, onions, chillies, and a pinch of salt. Umai has now transcended its traditional confines to become a truly Sarawakian dish. Definitely an A+ for those who have taste buds that favour sour-ish delicacies and it's a must try too if you're in Sarawak!

#4. Coconuts

This is not any typical coconuts, I tell you. It's a hybrid of coconut and pandan :D The flesh is really tender and juicy, smells good too (; Awesome It's only RM1 for each! Where the hell can you find such cheap coconuts, you tell me?

#5. Laksa Mukah

Just like any other kind of laksa you can get in Sarawak and not to forget, #6. sago worms and the sago pearls! But too bad I didn't get too see any of these two during my stay in Mukah, but it's surely is one of the specialties in Mukah :D

So that's pretty much it, do stay tuned for my last post of 2010! & if you're observant enough, I changed my layout. What do you think? It's kinda simple, isn't it? ):
