Miri/Brunei Trip: Day 1 (Part 2)

Bekenu: Ikan Tuk-tuk

Next, we drove 2 hours all the way to Bekenu for our lunch after a tired golf play. The main attraction for Miri people to go all the way there is actually a famous dish called: Ikan Bertuk-tuk. (Actually I had no idea how to spell the word, just agak agak only. ;)) 100 gram of this fish costs RM9, imagine how expensive it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the picture of the dish. Quite ugle, ya, I know. But don't ever judge a book by it's cover. As my friend say, this fish meat can actually melt in your mouth.

We also ordered other dished. But the next main attraction will be this prawn dish. Super nice...

This is the picture of the Bertuk-tuk fish. Very ugly I tell you. Some more it won't move at all. Just like a rock. That's why the chinese name for this fish is "Shi Tou Yu"

After a heavy lunch, we went to Bungai Beach to take a scroll. But since I'm wearing high heels, I just stay near the pathway.

Since it's hot in the afternoon, we didn't stay long at the beach. Some more the beach a lot of sand flies one. My legs got bitten and until now the red dots are still there. Hmmphh... Around 4pm we finally reach our hotel. After check in, bathe and rest, it's almost time to go out for dinner. Haha.... 3 super full meals in a day. No wonder I gain weight after coming back.
