    I'm back to Sarawak-Kalimantan border again. This time I am not crossing the border.

    In Serikin town of Malaysian Borneo, Indonesian traders come to sell their cheap goods & products to Malaysian every Sunday morning. The local authority allows them to sell their stuff on the street of Serikin, less than 2 km from the border:





    You can buy a lot of cheap stuff here, from furniture to food:

    A stall selling the curtains:





    Stall selling souvenirs & handicraft:

    Later, we visited another market at Kampung Duyoh. The stalls here are opened by Bidayuh people (or, Land Dayak) of Malaysian Borneo.

    This stall is selling giant pitcher of a species of pitcher plant, Nepenthes ampullaria. This pitcher is for cooking hill rice (purple coloured rice from Borneo) :










    Cooked hill rice with peanuts in a cut opened pitcher (delicious Bidayuh food):

    does the limau manis taste like those thai oranges used to make orange juice they sell on bangkok streets?
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    there's one big one opposite the main road where you stayed last time (in chinatown), and a few others I'm not very sure where.

    The taste is not 100% Kuching kolo me even though it's very close already. The noodles is the same though. Heard there's another one at Geylang besides the 2 at Chinatown but I have never tried.

    Thaste the similar as the Thai ones. Sometimes these can be sweeter and juicer than the Thai ones dependingon your luck.


    Michael, next time you can show them the pics of wild durians from Sarawak. I guess most of them have never seen before.

    Updating :

    Proiphys amboinica from the Maluku of Indonesia. (Amaryllidaceae)






    This is Pholidota imbricata; it is related to Coelogyne.







    A rare species of wild orchid, Phalaenopsis pantherina.






    Dimorphorchis lowii var. lowii. According to a botanist, the different flowers at the base of the inflorescence are sterile but strongly fragrant and act as attractants for the rest of the fertile but odourless flowers.
