When I was in Johor Bahru, a friend took me to a restaurant that specialises in sup tulang (bone soup?) Bone soup is a specialty to most Malaysians besides the ox tail soup. This restuarant serves a one of its kind of bone soup in that the bone was added to the mee rebus. It is named Mee Rebus Tulang. The bone isastually for the customer to savour the marrow which can be sipped using the straw provided. However I did not sip the marrow due to its high cholesterol content.
The restaurant is situated in a forestry environment at Jalan Petri 5/1. Its a secluded environment with colonial building still stand strong. For someone new the clue to find this place is “behind JKR”. If I were to go again, I will not find the place withease.
The eating shelters built between trees gives a cool and tranquility atmosphere.
This is the mee bandung tulang that I ordered. A drinking straw is provided to sip the bone marrow and helps increase the cholesterol level in your blood.
I had the opportunity to visit the weekly tamu at Dataran Tomborungus in Kudat Town. Tamu is a congregation of small time business enterpreneur just like the pasar malam or night market in other places. However tamu is mainly for local farmers to sell their product and it is a form of direct sales- fresh from the farm.
This concept is now replicated by FAMA who organised the Pasar Tani.
The pictures below was taken during the tamu.
Traditional medicine also make its presence at the tamu.
Flying without wings? Oh….its chicken wings roasted over charcoal fire. Chicken wing is becoming a popular delicacy in Sabah and Sarawak.
Fresh from the farm: It is not only fresh but cheap too.
Coconut has been the symbol of Kudat since it was the main product before being taken over by oil palm.
Coconut juice from young fruits is a refreshing drink on a hot day and the soft flesh is so soothing to eat.
I was a teacher in SMK Kota Marudu, Sabah from 1976 – 1980 and when I had the opportunity to revisit the town, it was very nostalgic. I could reacll all the sweet memories of my early life when I start to make a living. When I came to Kudat in May I took the opportunity to go to Kota Marudu and my former student accompanied me.
A satelite map from Google Earth showing the town of Kota Marudu.
Along the was, I saw one Rungus longhouse and how they cope with modern living. Modernisation and traditional can be seen here. See the Astro receiver dish?
This is a view along the road leading to Kota Marudu from Langkon, the junction to Kota Kinabalu, Kota Marudu and Kudat. Mount Kinabalu can be seen in the background.
On the way to Kota Marudu. The bridge crosses over Sungai Bandau. Bandau is the former name of Kota Marudu.
The main roundabout before entering Kota Marudu new township.This roundabout is at the new Goshen town. In the background is the SMK Kota Marudu. I did not have the opportunity to teach in this school because my contract expires in the year before this new school start operating.
The Kota Marudu mosque situated at the Pekan Lama (old town). This Pekan Lama is non existence anymore after it was moved to a new township. It was at this mosque that we congregate for Friday prayers and religuous activities.
This is a community hall. Inside this building, I gather the youth of Kota Marudu for theatre and dance practice for my group “Anak Seni”
