I once travelled by road from Miri to Bandar Seri Begawan with my son who once worked in Miri. We crossed a river where there were people selling large udang galah. Since I was on my way to Brunei, I was unable to buy the udang galah since we would have taken too much time to reach home later.
Was it anywhere in Limbang that this fresh water lobsters were found?
