The fish monger today has sliced the tuna into slim pieces and a plate of the above costs me RM 8, weighing slightly more than a kilo . Today the going rate is RM 6/kilo. I like to fry tuna though it can be barbequed, grilled or prepared in curry or soya sauce.
By the way the local Bintulu Melanaus are great fish eaters and as they say fish is good for the heart. They live longer here. They even eat fish raw in the form of 'umai' . If you happen to be in Bintulu and never tried 'umai', you would have miss the real Bintulu.
