Borneo Break: Once in Sarikei

I used to know someone in Sarikei, the little town famous for pineapples and pepper but that was years back when I was in campus. From Bintangor, Mau Wei had taken the old road to this little town and she had to drive her car into a boat which would take us on a short ride to where Sarikei stands. Such an interesting experience indeed! There would be nothing much to see in town if you don't fancy old Chinese shophouses or going to the market to shop for pineapples or pepper, I suppose; and that was exactly what we did! While Amber went round snapping photos and Gendil went round hunting for bargains, Mau Wei and I went to buy pineapples and some other fruits which we would take back as gifts for our kind hosts in Sibu ...
