Kampua, that’s my favourite food. If you’re from Sibu or Sarikei, this is a delicacy not to be missed.¬† Every time I’m back to my hometown, I’ll never miss to have kampua as my breakfast. The original kampua come with ‘char siu’ (in cantonese) mean roasted pork. If you don’t like the ‘char siu’, then you may ask to replace with ‘wan tan’ (in cantonese). The price of a bowl of kampua is currently at RM2.2o. In the heydays, it is only RM1.20. Hmm……that’s inflation.

Besides the normal kampua, you can have some extras like pork liver soup which is also yummylicious. My wife can have bowls of this and not be bored by it.

So, to my beloved readers out there, do take the opportunity to try out this delicacy if you happen to find it. You’ll definitely not regret it. Yum Yum………got to take some snack now….I’m hungry just by writing this post. Haha..

I guess most of the people don’t even know this species of ‘wild’ durian. If you are durian lover, then you should not miss this. This wild durian is a seasonal fruit during the Jan and Feb. So, during this CNY, I grab my chance to buy some of this king of fruits!

This is usually sold at the pasar tani where the Ibans sold them in a pile of 4 or 5 pieces at RM10/pile. I bought 2 piles for my whole family to savor. The durians are also smaller than the normal durians. 1 durian is about the size¬† of our palm, but rest assured, there are still quite a lot of flesh in it. The taste of this durian is a little different than the normal durians we had. The flesh is more thick and not so watery. The smell is also not as aromatic or pungent for some people. Therefore, even if you’re not a durian lover, you should try it out. As this is wild durians, we can gurantee it does not contain any chemical fertilizer to make the durians thicker or sweeter. This is the real thing. So, if you ever saw one of these anywhere, be sure to grab one and taste it. You will not regret it. This is indeed the “king of fruits”
