If this is your first time visiting NTGravity Zone’s blog – WELCOME to [The] [R]ant [O]f [C]hivalrous of [K]uching [Girl] a.k.a. The Rock Girl!! I’m Aliey *bump fists*
On 30th May to 2nd June 2014, NTGravity Zone (under Sarawak Bloggers community) has been invited to attend a festival held in Ba’ Kelalan... it is called Irau Aco Lun Bawang. NTGravity Zone would love to THANK YOU to Sarawak Tourism Board for inviting and also to Sarawak Bloggers for the opportunity. Read my previous entries about my journey by clicking the link below...
Now... back to my journey... Around 7pm, Amirul and i heading back to Pak Yudan’s Homestay. We’re going to have our dinner there, together with the rest of Pak Yudan’s family and other lodgers. I’ve learned that Lun Bawang people will always do thing together and value relationship. They always gather together and discuss or have fellowship in peaceful ways, one of their favourite place is near the ‘Tetel’ [means : the fire place] and in the common room called ‘Sikang’. The whole families in the house will gather around and share stories with each other. Even when friends or relatives come to visit, they will sit near the fire place to chat or discussed and this tradition was deliver, taught and learns by the Lun Bawang people to each other and to their youngs.
After delicious dinner and a mug of hot coffee later, we all head back to the Buduk Nur’s football field for night activities...
Oh yeah, it’s preferable to own a torch light as there will be no street lights. Also please use the appropriate footwear as a walking path sometimes wet and slippery.
