Shrimp, Shrimp and Shrimps

Guess what, the shrimps season is back! Shrimps can be found all over in Miri, especially by the beach, on the way to Kuala Baram! We call it shrimps, in bahasa we call it ‘udang geragau’ while the local here in Miri they call it ‘bubuk’. Uh, I’m so surprised that everyone is selling, around RM5 to RM7 per kilo. Most surprisingly, many people will buy it for at least 10kg, I even heard 1 customer next to me is buying 50kg, omg. The reason they buy 10kg and above is to do shrimp paste a.k.a ‘belacan’, then, they will sell it about RM28 per kilo. Just look the pictures below.

Haha, my aunt bought the shrimps for only 1kg, haha, just for doing ‘cekodok geragau’. Google it to find out more about ‘cekodok geragau’. Lovely, fresh from the sea. Uh, now I smell 'belacan' everywhere.
