In Sibu, most butchers would have only a few pig stomachs for sale. And usually a discerning housewife would book the pig stomach/s way ahead of the day she needs the item.
Pig stomachs are usually purchased for the preparation of a good tonic soup for the elderly or for the new mother still in confinement. Any man or woman who is losing appetite would also be given a pig stomach tonic soup.
