A Walk in the clouds
Last Thursday, we went to Lundu and Sematan. Lundu is located in the west of Sarawak, on the west bank of the Batang Kayan (Kayan River), and not far from the South China Sea. It is about 90 km from Kuching.
Gunung Gading becabang tiga,
Pantai Pandan jauh ke tengah.
Hancur badan di kubur tanah
Budi baik di-kenang juga.
"Tusk Mountain has three peaks,
Pandan Beach stretches far to the middle.
A person's body may be dissolving in the grave;
A kind heart is remembered always.
"---as recited by the late Hbi anak Muda"
What is interesting about Lundu/Sematan? There is Gunung Gading National Park and many resorts available for the tourists. We didn't go to any beach but just went there for sightseeing. Somehow we bought a lot of crab which is cheap. Umm..I did learnt something new about mushroom which was sold at the market in Sematan. There are 2 species which are known by local as Kulat sawit and kulat bibir. Kulat sawit grow on the dead palm oil frond while kulat bibir grow on the dead thrunk of rubber tree.
Lundu also famous with seafood cracker - fish, prawn and cuttlefish cracker. Lin bought few packets to bring home and we had the opportunity to visit the factory.
