Back in 1969, Buli Sim-Sim Water Village was built by the government along the sea coast of Sandakan, Sabah. There were approximately 13000 villagers during that time, consisted of Malay ethnic and Chinese ethnic, which their houses were separated by a bridge. One side was for the Malay and the other was for the Chinese. Their houses were considered big and spacious even they were built on the water. And so, it was not a surprise knowing the children’s daily activity was swimming. Although there were rubbish or maybe the household waste disposal everywhere on the water, the children loved to swim and remained healthy. It seemed that these villagers had good and strong immune system.
