From the Wikipedia

'Gawai Day or Gawai Dayak'Dayak Never Die /DnD, a festival celebrated in Sarawak on 1 June every year is both a religious and social occasion. The word Gawai means a ritual or festival whereas Dayak is a collective name for the natives races in Sarawak; the Iban, Bidayuh (like me), Kayan, Kenyah, Kelabit, Murut people and a few more. Thus Gawai Dayak literally means "Dayak Festival". Dayak would visit their friends and relatives on this day. Such visit is more known as "ngabang" in Iban Language. Those far away would receive greeting cards.


OoOo. Clip Sambutan Gawai Dari Al Jazeera. Kelas kan?
And this Bidayuh Lady speaks my Bidayuh. Bidayuh ada byk slang la.



This is how we celebrate Gawai in the kampung (but not my kampung la. Ini kampung sebelah). Christians dah tak sambut la gini sebenarnya. Just takat nonton je la pun. Tp my mother's side nye kampung volks still celebrate. Besh tau. Korang mesti tak penah tgk kan? Hehehehe... mari mari. Kiter pegi Sarawak.... only in June!

Life. Is. Colourful. To. Make. My. Life. Wonderful.
