Just a quick blogpost on a rainy and messy and wet Saturday here in Sandakan.
It is probably the only place where you get to see a floating village inhabited by Chinese locals and not the unwanted foreigners like most other floating villages that we see in many coastal areas of Sabah.
I actually went there for this.
Ladies and gentlemen...Welcome to Sim Sim Seafood Restaurant - A seaside restaurant that overlooks the beautiful Sulu Sea.
Thanks to the cloudy and heavy sky over Sandakan, it was refreshingly windy there and I was more than happy to take my shirts off and scare all the visitors away but I didn't.
The restaurant appeared to have been extended out since the last time I went there – probably to accommodate more visitors. Good progress. My thumps up.
Oh well, despite its popularity, it is most advisable to go there on a lazy weekend when you’ve got too much time to kill. Do not go there with a groaning stomach or you’ll end up yelling your hunger out at any of the waitresses. It took like forever for them to prepare this.
Well.. it wasn’t bad alright. Being one of the seafood havens in the country, Sandakan can always assure you of fresh seafood. Anything not fresh is considered ODD here in this part of the world. LOL!
The restaurant basically admits the fish first-handedly from the fishermen.
And they’ll put them into containers not for display purposes but to make sure that you are sure that you are assured of fresh fishes to make for your fresh seafood dishes. Heh.
Oh well, do not get worried of overeating. They’ve got a toilet for your emergency use.
Rest assured again, your disposal would not go to waste. NOT AT ALL.
Instead they’d go down to the deserving marine community.
And of course you know where exactly they are going to later. Literally.
