3D2N Trip to Ng. Ukum, Batang Ai

This trip took place on the 19th to 21st of August. Andrea Pelo & Giulia Buzzetti from  Italy, is one of those nice and awesome couple you can ever meet. Even sometimes in some of our conversations, we had a small trouble understanding each other, but, it did not us from having fun and enjoying nature, culture and the people of the longhouse. 

Sago Worms

The first day of the trip, they were not so fortunate as they did not get to see the Orang Utan at Semenggoh centre. Due to wild fruits still fruiting and available in the jungle. But I tried my best to make the trip fun for them. Later that day we proceeded to Serian town, they saw sago worms, and phyton being sold at the market. Also fresh fish and vegetables.  Ulat mulong a.k.a siyet is Melanau’s favourite dish and it’s commercial name is Sago worm.One of the favorite delicacies for the locals and it is rich with protein. It was considered as an alternative to rice during the World War II in Sabah and Sarawak. Later we head to Lachau town where we had lunch. Simple chinese lunch.

Overall this trip they also get to expirience spear gun fishing at night, saw wild animals and get to learn how to cook meat and rice in the bamboo. Enjoy the pictures below. Also there is a short clip (video) of the trip.
