It’s the 20th Sabah Fest 2008 festival extravaganza celebration which has been launched on last Saturday, 3rd May 2008 at Magellan Sutera Harbour Resort, Kota Kinabalu. … and I was there!! not to work but to join the fun!! Yeay!!!

Kids with traditional costume.. wait till you see how they perform.

Tourist are among that present to enjoyed the show.

The show started with an introduction of cultural wedding presentation of the Bajau group.

One of the Bajau’s wedding tradition.

Colourful patterns of backdrop for the wedding.

Later the Sabah Fest 2008 has been officially launched by the Sabah’s Head of State Tun Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Ahmadshah bin Abdullah and wife.

together with the Chief Minister of Sabah Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman.

Then the cultural dance performance start..

Dance of Kudapasu

Dance of Igal Tabawan

Dance of Umang Ting Ting

Dance of Medtemu of the Dusun Ranau.. (sumandak-sumandak Ranau cun-cun oohh!)

Dance of Kudapasu

I love zoom lenses.. (haaa!! sumandak ini pun cun jugak!! workh!! koff!! koff!!)

I admire all these kids, macnificent performances!!

Dance of Magunatip..

The locals use to call them the Sabahan Warriors.

By the end of the event, all cultural dances came out to the stage and gather around and it’s time for a group singing, conducted by a local singer.

A Kompang playing by the Brunei group.

Backup vocal..

It’s the end of the show, everybody was enjoying the moment!! I must say that only this particular night you have the opportunity to see all Sabahan unique culture become unite + harmonious with colours and patterns.. and I’ve enjoyed the most.. proud to be true Sabahan!
