Nice to relax after a heavy breakfast.
Next item in the itinerary to cross off is Sibu Central Market.
Uncle Arthur had warn us to look out for Paper Wrapped Chicken. Mamarazzi was thinking that the Pasar(Market) have "Paper Wrapped Chicken" dish as in Restaurant Leong Ya at Seri Kembangan, Slangor.
There were quite a lot of interesting fruits and vegetables to be seen especially at the Natives Products Section.
From top left clockwise : Terung Dayak(Yellow Eggplant) only found in Sabah and Sarawak, Bamboo shoots, Midin (ferns ), Tempoyak and Cincaluk.
Lovely beads ornaments.
Then Mamarazzi spotted the "Paper Wrapped Chicken" that Uncle Arthur meant.
Choose one and the old lady will weight it for you.

WOOoooooAAAaa....what is THAT!?
Wiggly Sago worms! It's consider a delicacy to some at this part of the world. Not cheap leh. RM10 for 16 big fat and juicy Sago worm. Smaller ones costs the same but they gave you 20 worms.
Best eaten alive.
Hmmm since we were going for dinner at Uncle Arthur's place...well....it's a custome when someone invite you for dinner, it is polite to bring an extra dish. Sago Worms kira(counts) or not ah? Got me a bucket of Sago Worms to go.
Next we came to dried produce section. They have all sorts here. There were dried shrimps, dried anchovies, salted fish and etc. Auntie Claire wanted to look for dried fish roe but it was not in season.
Ah Mah asked to buy Haybee (Dried shrimps) if the price are like RM30-RM40 per kg. However, the price here ranges around RM60 to RM70 per kg.
But one thing noted is that the dried shrimps here are pretty unusual. These are the ones that is usually found in KL.
While these are the ones found in Sibu.
I think you know what happen next, right?
Can you see the Uncle's happy face?
Can you guess how many "Ikan Terubuk" in the box?
Phew!!! Sure the car and our hotel room gonna stink like mad. Next time, must visit some place that don't have Wet Market that sells Salted Fish punya.
