Selamat Hari Gawai (Happy Gawai Everyone!)

Selamat Hari Gawai Dayak ngagai semua bala kaban belayan aku.
Piya mega ngagai bala kami sebilik di Sarawak tauka di Labuan.

Nyangkung aku ngirup ai pengayu au.
Those who were asking "What the h*** is she saying?"
I'm sorry folks.
That's Iban Language.
My mother tongue.
We were once called The Head Hunters.
So don't mess around with us.

Hari Gawai (Harvest Celebration) is 2 days away...
that'll be on the 1st June.
Only the Sea Dayaks and Land Dayaks in Sarawak celebrate it (proud to be one).
Altho i wasn't born in Sarawak

I miss celebrating Gawai.
But celebrating it without Daddy is not fun at all.

The best part about Gawai is having to eat with family and friends at The Ruai.

My fellow readers from other countries, do visit Malaysia
to experience this joyous celebration.
It's super fun!


Gayu Guru Gerai Nyamai.
Lantang Senang Nguan Menua!

A touch of Sarawak
