The stunning vintage setup of Biru-Biru Cafe

If you’re looking for a good place to have your dinner or just to chill with a couple of cold beers in Kota Kinabalu City, I highly suggest that you check out the Biru-Biru Cafe in Jalan Dewan, Gaya Street. 

The Biru-Biru cafe is really something and their vintage style setup is really different from any other cafes that you will find here in Kota Kinabalu. Not only the interiors will amaze you but the foods that they serve there is also super amazing.

This cafe might look different and to some people it may look too simple for their taste but let me tell you a little history about this cafe and why it is out of the ordinary. This cafe has a history in Kota Kinabalu as this building has been there since the second World War. Back in 1945, the building is called ‘Biru-Biru” and today it is called Biru-Biru Cafe. During the second World War, on the very same spot where the Biru-Biru Cafe stands is a campsite for the Alliance. This building is actually used for printing press back in the days and later adapted to other functions. The name of Biru-Biru cafe is also inspired by a famous local song called “Sayang Kinabalu’ which uses the Line ‘Biru-Biru’.

The Entertaining Local and International performers

Biru-Biru Cafe also holds a monthly open mic session where local performers can show their talents and sing their hearts out to the guests. Not only locals but also international performers will get the chance to perform for the good people of Kota Kinabalu and tourists. Biru-Biru Cafe sure is a place to chill and enjoy some music with friends and family.

Biru-Biru Cafe serves a wide variety of food for you to try, and not only food, but they also serve a good selection of cocktails, and beers, so pick your poison. Top it up with local ‘Pusas’ a local name for tidbits to be eaten while drinking alcoholic beverages. Usually deep fried fish called ‘Basung’, a famous dish amongst the locals here and at Biru Biru Cafe. Deep fried and add a squeeze of lemons to add the flavours to it. You can eat the whole fish without the worry to debone it because it is fried to perfection and the bones will be crispy for safe consumption.

The Fried Basung with Slices of Lemons, a match made in heaven. Top it up with a couple of cold beers, Terbaik! (Local term meaning, “The Best!”)

Have a look at the menu, and you will find that they have a lot of variety of infused local flavours and recipes. An ingredient that stands out is ‘Tuhau’ or in English stands for Wild Ginger– fascinatingly featured in some of their dishes.Tuhau is a type of Wild Ginger, diced and mixed with other ingredients and left to ferment. It has a rather distinctive smell and flavor and truth be told, it takes some getting used to! Biru Biru stays true to its local specialty and is featured in their battered fish or spicy beef taco, topped with tomato, cheddar and tuhau salsa. If you are into Pasta, Biru-Biru Cafe has their own signature dish where Italian meets Sabahan in their Tomato Tuhau Pasta with chicken – easily one of their bestsellers. An all-time favourite is their Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken as well as the Corned Beef Ikan Masin Fried Rice (Ikan Masin is salted fish – another must-have in local kitchens). Also noteworthy is the Grilled Chicken and Pumpkin Sandwich, served with a side of fries and the Coconut Pasta with Grilled Prawns.

Some of the mouth watering dishes that Biru-Biru Cafe serves. Feeling hungry yet? Hehe..

One of their signature drink is also a must-try, it’s a local infused cocktail called the Fee-Lihing-Good which is a local rice wine infused cocktail and the taste is just like the name.

Next time if you’re looking for a good place to have your dinner, remember that Biru-Biru Cafe is just around the corner (well, more like at the back of Kota Kinabalu City area). Grab a bunch of friends and family together with you and enjoy!

North Borneo Railway

North Borneo Railway Old and New

When it comes to Classic Trains, Sabah Borneo has one of the oldest running steam locomotive that will take you back to the nostalgic bygone era and it is called the North Borneo Railway. Anyone who is planning to visit Sabah Borneo should mark this one on your list of things to do in Sabah Borneo.

Here’s a brief history of the steam locomotive services in Borneo, the history of the North Borneo Railway begins in 1880, when the British North Borneo Chartered Company obtained a large plot of land from the Sultan Of Brunei and the Sulu Sultanate. Tobacco was a big thing in 1880 to 1890 in Borneo. So the need for an efficient transportation to transport the goods is needed. Back in the days, the local planters travel to towns to sell their crops either by foot or animals but it usually takes a very long time as some of their farms are deep inside the tropical jungle areas, so it will take longer and more difficult to reach into town.

The British North Borneo Company soon began the ambitious railway project to link the East and West Borneo through the dense jungle, mountains, rivers, and swamplands. The cost of clearing the path was very costly even the rich British North Borneo company was having troubles with it as they were building the rail from Beaufort to Tenom, and Melalap, and the other one from Beaufort to Jesselton (now known as Kota Kinabalu).

The British soon faced a lot of problems maintaining the railway as it was constantly damaged by fallen trees and also the locals who look upon the locomotive as a man-made machine with evil spirits that disturbs the peaceful environment of the jungle surroundings. Soon, rubber became an important source of income as it was high on demand during the World War l for making car tires. After rubber, timber also became one of the most important things and the timber industry also benefited from the railroad.

Ater 30 years, the Steam Powered Locomotive is replaced by petrol and diesel locomotive. The Steam Locomotive was later repaired and refurbished to a fully functioning state by the Sutera Harbour Resort together with the Sabah Tourism Association to be used as a train for tourism activities. The original Vulcan 15 Steam Locomotive that was built by the Lancashire-Based Vulcan Foundry in the United Kingdom was first brought over to Borneo by the Colonial-Administered North Borneo in 1954. And it was later decommissioned for general use around the early 1970’s by the Sabah State Railway Department. It is also the only functioning World Burning Steam Powered Locomotive in Sabah until today.

Today, tourist can once again experience this unique experience of boarding into a vintage style British North Borneo Era train. The train has six carriage that can accommodate up to 36 people and the carriage has a classic colonial-era bar style with an observation deck. Both the interior and exterior are fully refurbished to provide the environment of the typical train of 1900.

The exterior of the train is painted in traditional deep green and cream that was originally used by the North Borneo Railways trains. It also has the original carved brass logo of the North Borneo Railway on the train. The carved logo is a tiger holding a rail wheel standing on a royal crown. The interior is built based on a Victorian-Era setting with a little mix of local Sabahan woods to give that vintage and local touch to the train. It also has fully functioning unisex washrooms on every carriage and the windows will remain to be opened at all time for maximum comfort to all the passengers. A British Pullman carriage is used as a functional kitchen car as well as a powerful generator which provides all electricity requirements.

The routes of this train usually start from Tanjung Aru that is not far from Kota Kinabalu city, up to the Papar district, and you can choose to go up to Beaufort or Tenom from Tanjung Aru. The train ride will transport you back to the days of the North Borneo Chartered Company and the British Colonial Office, when the colonials came down to Borneo from England to become planters and plantation owners, cutting into the wilds of the unexplored jungles in search of adventures and riches beyond their wildest imaginations.

Passengers on the North Borneo Railway can also have that similar experience of exploring and seeing parts of Sabah that is very different from any other touristy tourist spots. Along the way, the railway line is just beside by the mighty Crocker Range which is also near to the Mount Kinabalu. Passengers can see how the indigenous people of Sabah still live and also the flora and fauna along the journey, buffaloes taking a dip in mud pools, small rustic towns, water villages, rivers, paddy fields and so much more to see that will keep you wide awake and excited throughout the journey.

Passengers of the North Borneo Railway will be treated with some of the unique and interesting views of Sabah. For your breakfast, you will be treated with an assortments of Malaysian Desserts or Kuih Muih together with the famous Kopi Tenom or Sabah Tea.

But the most unique thing about the foods in the North Borneo Railway is the lunch. On your way back you will be served with a ‘Tiffin-Style” lunch sets. A typical railway of the olden days.

Instead of plates, your meal will be served in a metal Tiffin Box that’ll give you that unique experience from your everyday meals

Your lunch is basically a variety of local Sabahan foods. An exotic blend of the Asian and Continental Cuisine that’ll keep your stomach full throughout the journey back to the main station

If you are planning to visit Sabah Borneo, make sure to put the North Borneo Railway on your list. An experience you won’t get anywhere else and not be missed in Borneo. Take a step back to 1900 with this train and see Sabah in a different kind of way, I’m sure it’ll be way different from any other experience that other people will get in Sabah. Choooooo Chooooooo……

A Walk into The History & Culture of Sabah, Borneo

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey

Your holiday destination to Sabah, Borneo, will never be completed without going to the Sabah State Museum in Kota Kinabalu city, Sabah, Borneo. Get the insight of the history and culture in Sabah, Borneo. Moreover, it is a good place for you to spend with your family and friends for a day trip in your Sabah Borneo Holidays.

The Sabah State Museum is about 5-10 minutes away from the city, and it is located on top of a hill, opposite the Queen Elizabeth Hospital; the museum is clearly visible to all motorists on the road below. The Sabah State Museum is easily accessible from the main road, which you can reach there via public buses, Uber/Grab car, or taxi.

Sabah State Museum’s main building was built in 1984. Its architectural design was inspired by one of the Sabah Borneo’s indigenous tribe;- Rungus and Murut longhouses. The design of the museum is so unique that it attracts many visitors to experience the fun and educational walk into the history of Sabah Borneo.

A giant size replica of “Wakid” is the bamboo basket which originates from districts of Ranau and Tambunan in Sabah Borneo – Traditionally used by Dusun people to carry fruits, firewood, vegetables and paddy stalks

Brochure and map as your guide to the Sabah State Museum and the background are the skeletons of the giant 68-feet Bryde’s whale, which was found in Gaya Island Bay in 2006

Last Sunday, I got the opportunity to go back there again after 10 years, but this time, I bring along my little siblings and cousins to the museum. Well, I figured all kids should have to visit the Sabah State Museum one day or another so they will have something to learn about Sabah’s heritage and culture. I was worried that the kids might not enjoy the tour, but how can it be not fun? I expected the trip will last about 1 hour or less, but we ended up being there for more than 4 hours!

Although the museum is small, it contains plenty of historical artifacts ( such as totems statues, weapons, blowpipes, skulls, traditional costume, etc), documentation and photographs, which displays the history of Sabah in the indoor exhibition. Before going into the indoor exhibition, the kids were amazed to see the skeleton of the giant 68-feet Bryde’s whale;- found stranded and eventually died on a shallow reef at the Gaya Bay on 2006.

A collection of old cars were exhibit outside the museum

Crossing the suspension bridges to reach the heritage village

The kids were enjoying their trip to the museum, especially the outdoor museum, with a lot of walking and hiking around the museum area, checking out the vintage cars, visiting the replicas of old traditional houses at the Heritage Village, facing their fear to walk on the suspension bridge, admiring the water lilies in a pond, hopping on the railway trains, etc.

Re-visiting the Sabah State Museum certainly brought me closer to understanding my culture and the history of my home-state. This is definitely recommended for locals and also non-locals to drop-by to the museum as it is really interesting and educational.

Ambuyat – The Edible Gooey Bornean Delicacies

Ambuyat – The Edible Gooey Bornean delicacies

We’re on Pinterest! Check us out

If you are looking for that unique taste of Bornean delicacies, I will recommend you to go and try the Ambuyat!

It is one of the unique food that can be found in Borneo as it is very gooey and it looks like glue when it is served. It has various names such as the Pinantung, Ambuyat, Sagu and many more and they can be found in almost all parts of Borneo as it is eaten by a majority of natives in Borneo.

Ambuyat

The Ambuyat before it is cooked looks like flour; white powdery form and you can buy them in local markets or Tamu around Borneo. They are usually sold in packs and some people say it looks like a pack of starch.

The Pinantung is a very famous dish amongst the native community (Kadazan, Dusun, Rungus, and etc etc) here in Sabah but it is also famous in the Bruneian community up to the Sarawakian community. To my surprise, this dish can also be found in eastern parts of Indonesia and it is very similar to the one we get here and the name is Papeda or Bubur Sagu. The Papeda is a famous dish for the local native people in Maluku and also Papua New Guinea.

Ambuyat
Dinner at D'Place Kinabalu
Another similar version as Ambuyat
Dinner at D'Place Kinabalu

In Indonesia, the name of this local delicacy is called the Papeda. It is the same exact thing if you look closely. Well, it’s good to know that people from other parts of the world are eating the same food as yours. Both the Ambuyat and also Papeda is from the trunk of the sago palm. For those who don’t know, the Ambuyat is a national dish in Brunei. Let’s get to the best part about this dish which is the preparation of this dish. The preparation of this dish is unique as it doesn’t need any fire or pan to cook it. All you need is a hot water and a reliable wooden spoon to prepare this dish and it is a very easy dish to prepare. Once you’ve mastered it, preparing the Ambuyat is like ringing a bell.

Ambuyat

Just pour the Sago Starch into the bowl and next pour in some hot water and gently give a light stir and keep pouring the hot water in until it thickens up. Once it coagulates, give it a light scoop and if it’s in a sticky form, then it is ready to be served. Eating the ambuyat is a little tricky with a spoon so the best way to eat them is by using a traditional chopstick called the Candas, which looks like the Chinese chopsticks but is thinner and made from sago leaf stalk or bamboo stick, to scoop the gooey Ambuyat.

Ambuyat
The Candas is one of the essential that you will need to eat the Ambuyat

Ambuyat

With the candas, it is easier to scoop the Ambuyat. Just put the front tip of the Candas into the Ambuyat, give it a little twist, pull and you’re good to go! For those who are having a hard time with the Candas can always use the good ol’ fork.

Believe or not, the Ambuyat is actually tasteless! Yes, they are tasteless I repeat. That is why when you’re eating the Ambuyat it is important to have your own customized dipping. The dipping can be either be a local fish soup called the Pinasakan, a canned sardine with tomato sauce, curry or anything that you like. Add some hot spicy chillies, some lime juice, or maybe a pinch of salt for that extra taste or just throw in some small slices of Bambangan (Local Mango) for that good sweet and sour taste. The Ambuyat will taste better if the dipping soup is based on your taste. The best dipping for the Ambuyat is the Pinasakan as it will give every scoop a superb spicy taste with a little extra flavours from the fish.

Ambuyat

It’ll add taste to your Ambuyat with the Pinasakan. Add some Bambangan and some extra hot chillies too for that Red Hot Chili Peppery taste. A little chilli won’t hurt the tongue.

Ambuyat

Another famous dipping for the Ambuyat is the classic canned sardine with tomato sauce and some cut chilies and a squeeze of lemon for that sweet, sour, and hot taste to your Ambuyat. All these dippings will make the Ambuyat taste better but for me, the good ol canned sardine is the unbeatable champion for all and also one of my personal favourites for the dipping. The Ambuyat may be tasteless but with the right dipping, I’m sure it’ll make your appetite go wild.

Next time if you happen to visit Borneo, make sure to put the Ambuyat in your bucket list as this is one of the unique food that you shouldn’t miss trying when you’re visiting Borneo. So if you are in Borneo, look for the Ambuyat and get right into the Gooey Action!
