I didn’t manage to go for the second night Kota Kinabalu District Level Kaamatan Carnival at Lintasan Deasoka the other day, but I did drop by during the afternoon, just before the event started at 7pm. However, I’ve visited the ‘Pondok Kebudayaan’ for about half an hour to snap some few good photos on the Sabah hand-made handicrafts..

Vinusak necklace, from Rungus tribe in Kudat, northern part of Sabah.

Bakul Rotan.
