Arrived a bit late at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), just in time for video showing by Mr. Lars Krutak - it's about Mentawai Tattoo. Really interesting~d(*⌒▽⌒*)b!
|Lars Krutak talks about Mentawai Tattoo|
|Six hour journey to meet the Mentawai Tribes|
After the show - Mr. Lars open the floor for question but everybody want to see his Mentawai tattoo on his thigh and start to bombard him with questions especially about his adventure. I missed capturing it - although i sit in front of him. Yet, i've seen it live too...
( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼.
After that, the event stopped for a break before another cultural show - but i cant wait due to other arrangement...
Before i left there are two cultural shows - Ngajat Miring and a Bidayuh Dance.
|In most potrait in the exhibition - i love this one! Can you feel the pride in her?|

Arrived at BCCK around 2pm - met other Sarawak Bloggers in person [ Irene : Sweet Surrender, Desmond : Pledge: A Promise of Hope and Norman Goh ] - all very young and success... :)
The Opening Ceremony start off with Iban Tribe called Miring.
|Even this is live reconstruction.. but his expression looks real~!|
The purpose of doing Miring, generally as making offering as i recalled [Thanks to my Ex Boyfriend for the memories... lalalala~] - it's either to seek blessing or for good health, fortune or even peace. Miring also to seek forgiveness and protection, give honor to Gods or souls of their dead ancestors and some other more.
Usually on the the tray (made of copper), you will find tobacco weed & cigar wrapper (made from palm leaves), betel leaf and condiments, Eggs, a small cup of rice wine, feathers of a chicken used during prayer will be plucked out and dipped in its blood when it is killed (YES, luckily it's not happen this time!) and some other (sorry - it's been awhile....)
