This is the Batang Kemena view. The photo taken from the hotel room where I spent my night.

Batang Kemena

The process of making cincalok requires several steps to create a product of high quality with a pleasing texture when consumed. Fresh small prawns are added with salt and rice in equal proportions. After the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, it will be sealed in a jar and allowed to ferment for three days. There are also cincalok makers who increase the proportion of rice in the mixture believing it to enhance the taste of the finished product.

Belacan Bintulu

In fact, Belacan Bintulu is known for its ‘excellent dissimilarity’ to shrimp pastes found in other parts of Malaysia, so much so that its value in terms preserving the originality of a traditional food has been incorporated into the catalogue of Sarawak cuisine.

Hi Jay. Its been a while...thanks for dropping by my blog.

Oh I love shrimp paste! we do have shrimp paste back home. Here in the UAE, I usually go to the Filipino store to buy and cook it with vegetables. You reminded me of my hometown.

I've noticed the banana too. Back home we call it senorita. That is absolutely mouth watering for me.

Have a nice weekend. Keep blogging. Btw, I enjoyed looking at your photos.
