Coil Spring Noodles @Sim Sim Seafood Restaurant, Kg. Buli Sim Sim, Sandakan

Kampung Buli Sim Sim - I spent first 8 years of my life here since birth  in this place I called home.  We moved out after my father got the family a landed house.  I can still recall those days when my father was a fisherman and due to the nature of his work, he was only home after a week out at the sea, back home for 2 days and back to the sea again.  We were lucky to have been blessed with good neighbours who would lend their helping hands whenever my mom and her young family were in dire need of help.

We bumped into an old neighbour while on our way to the restaurant.  She was all excited and invited us in and even showed us her family photos with some of our childhood playmates, now all grown up with their own families.  Those were the days.  Most of our good ol' neighbours had moved out and settled themselves on landed properties. The once Chinese populated water village is now left with only a handful of them, mostly dominated by Malays and foreign (Indonesian/Filipino, etc) immigrants.

"Dan Kung Meen" literally means Coil Spring Noodles in English.  Taste wise, it was good but you really need to have a set of steel teeth and a good digestive system to savour it.  Hahaha.. just kidding.
