We are blessed with a marvelous maid and who cooks like an angel and an amazing variety of fresh produce sea food. Terry is at the fish dock every day choosing the evening's meal. Scallops, sea bass, tiger prawns, grouper, the choice is bewildering. The vegetable market is a tourist attraction in itself. We hope the food at Sinurambi will be one of the high spots of your visit to Sabah.
