Iban Dance by SMK Muara Tuang

I finally got my fingers on the internet again. Since 31st May 2010, I have been busy celebrating the "Harvest Festival" or Gawai Dayak. Lots of events were organised for this celebration. But I think people who live in West Malaysia do not feel the excitement that we in East Malaysia is feeling now. Compared to Christmas, Gawai Dayak is the most awaited and celebrated by the Dayak community in East Malaysia. However, before I blog about how I celebrate Gawai Dayak, please allow me to show you the snapshots of the Kumang Gawai Competition that was held recently.

That day, I tried calling a staff in KK but nobody answered our call. It was late in the evening when I realized that Sabah & Sarawak were on a public holiday! LOL

I love the costumes.
