Borneo Break: Another Glimpse of Bintulu

Our trip from Mukah back to Miri was a delight. Gendil took over the car somewhere in the middle of the journey probably after we had stopped at a house somewhere at a junction to borrow a loo. Then, we were supposed to drive straight back to Miri but Gendil, surprisngly made a detour to the old part of Bintulu town where she went to shop for some belachan in the wet market there. Belachan, by the way, is a local delicacy, a shrimp paste, which is both smelly and an important ingredient in dishing out a many local delights. Her stop there gave both Amber and I an opportunity to look around Bintulu. Mau Wei who had been to Bintulu a few times said there was nothing much to see but for a first timer like Amber and me, Bintulu Old Town was an interesting distraction...
