My personal experience at Sibu Island, Malaysia
Two years ago, I chanced upon an oyster coral at low tide during my Boys' Brigade overseas excursion at Sibu Island in Malaysia. One of my tour members pried open the oyster shells with a screwdriver. Though the oysters were very tiny, they were very fresh.
When the tide came in, we went canoeing.
Some of us tasted the coconuts that were freshly plucked from the tree by one of the villagers. His tree climbing skill was amazing.
That trip was my first experience of staying in a kelong and I had learned valuable lessons about the lifestyles of a Malay kampong.
