Pesta Kaamatan 2009 | Unreleased!

Current Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Musa bin Haji Aman was at the launch of Pesta Kaamatan 2009 which held at the Kadazandusun Cultural Association Sabah (KDCA) last May 2009. Left: Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Pairin Kitingan and right: YB Datuk Haji Masidi Manjun.

The 10th Pesta Gambus Sabah 2009 was held last 26th July 2009 at the Papar Municipal Hall, Papar which organized by the Persatuan Masyarakat Brunei Sabah and this year I had the chance to come + see the Gambus competition.. yeayy!


‘Lute’ or verbally called by the locals as ‘Gambus’ is one of the oldest musical instruments in Sabah and been practically made + played by the Brunei community in Sabah.


Outside of the Papar Municipal Hall, there are local foods + products exhibitions.


Mostly the products are hand-made by the villagers nearby Papar district.


One of the Brunei’s favourite, Ambuyat a.k.a Sagu


They even got a mini concert, performances by the Kumpulan Gambus Madani from Bongawan, Sabah.


Aik! pun ada jual belon.


Backdrop for the main stage..


A typical costume for the Brunei community in Sabah.


The festival was launched by YB Datuk Masidi Manjun and he is representing the Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Musa bin Haji Aman that didn’t manage to come, also present was Datuk Karim Bujang, the President of the Association of Bruneian Community of Sabah, and Datuk Haji Abdul Rahim bin Ismail ADUN of N22, Pantai Manis as the Patron of Persatuan Masyarakat Brunei Sabah.


Momento presentation to YB Datuk Masidi Manjun.


Performances by the group from Kg. Warisan representing Kota Kinabalu district.



Group from Kg Binsuluk representing Membakut.




Group from Menumbok, representing Beaufort district.




Group from Kg. Weston,  Kimanis representing the Bongawan district.




Actually I don’t really enjoyed the show as what I’ve first expected..


Poor stage lighting + not so stunning dance performace = boring!


Even the famous Fauziah Gambus forgot to bring her Gambus..


But I must say the performances by well known gambus musician Farid Ali + guitarist Roger Wang save the day.


I was stunning by the sounds of gambus vs acoustic guitar.


Prize ceremony.. hmm maybe I need an ‘Ultra Wide Lenses’ for this angle..


Consolation prize of RM1000. – Kg. Warisan from Kota Kinabalu and Kg. Weston of Kimanis
3rd place of RM2000 – Kg. Buang Sayang from Papar
2nd place of RM3000 – Menumbok
Champion of RM5000 – Kg. Binsuluk from Membakut

As promised from previous teaser, here are some photos during the 4th Sabah International Folkdance Competition 2009 and there are total of 11 countries participate on the show performance which was held for two days at Sabah Cultural Centre, Penampang on last 4th and 5th July. The tickets cost you RM30 for Adult, RM10 for Kids and RM50 for 1st Class..

Let me head straight to the dance performances..


The hall was so dark inside, lucky the stage spotlight helps so much on the lighting.


The first team that came up for the performance was Cambodian Culture & Arts Group from Cambodia.


Their dance performance using a coconut shell a.k.a tempurung kelapa and main gulik2.


Next that made their appearance was Guang Dong group from China with their Zhan Jiang Song and Dance Ensemble.




The Punjab Folk Arts Center from India.




Daya Presta Company from Indonesia.


Performing a dance called ‘Tarian Topeng Petawi’


and next came the Majlis Adat Dayak Nasional from Kalimantan, Indonesia.


Their costume has similarity to the Dayak community of Sarawak.



and next came the On Alti Kiz also known as the sixteen girls all the way from Kazakhstan.




Now, this group was my favorite among the rest, Tacloban Performing Art Group from Philippines.


The group performed a dance legend of Sari Manok a.k.a chicken. See how’s the dance similarity to our local Magunatip dance here in Sabah.


They’re also using bamboos, just maybe this one was hardcore version, since they all main baring2 + main angkat2..


..+ main terbang2 berlawan atas bamboo pun ada bah!


Next group was East Barito Regency Artistry Team, again from Indonesia.



Dance performance by Saudi Arabia Group Riyadh came all the way from Saudi Arabia.



Then came the neigbouring country of Malaysia, Sriwarna group from Singapore performed a dance called ‘Nadi’


Using huge drums, these babes.. kohf! kohf! I mean these ladies really can performed such spectacular dance.


this group was my second fevret..


and lastly, a performance by the group representative for Malaysia from Negeri Sembilan.


At the final of the show.. all teams came out and gather in front of the stage and perform one dance we here call..


the Sumazau..


Everyone in the teams can do the Sabahan Sumazau


Including these hot babes dancers (kohf! kohf! terbatuk lagi!) from the land of Pua Chu Kang.

The 23rd Sabah Dragon Boat Race 2008, was held at Likas bay, Kota Kinabalu on last 15th June 2008.

I was already worried by looking at the clouds but lucky the ‘bomoh’ hujan is quiet PRO!

The race never stop and this where the starting line up.

On my way walking to the main grand stage, I manage to shot few pics of the surrounding.

Some of the locals are selling drinks + snacks, while this one selling plumber tools. lol..

Cameraman lost his action.

One of the PRO I found with his very huge sniper.

The event start early at 8am on Sunday morning, but the crowd are already everywhere, can you imagine that.

Before the race start, hand stretching is a must.

and the first run begun.. Each boat shall have maximum 18 paddlers for one team plus one drummer and one navigator/coxworth.

Did you know no female to be allowed to participate in the male’s team paddlers except to participate as a drummer or navigator and those that won are eligible to go through the final round.

but they have to keep their energy for the final race.

while those that lost… Tired + Hot = Water! is what they need

and no regrets. No women will be allowed to join amale paddlers unless the

Rowing back to the shore

Other contestant waiting for their turn for action

A welcome show by 24 young talented kids playing chinese drums.

A lion dance

and after the show the final race begun..

But something happens during the final race

something that really frustrated

Damned frustrated

But those are still on the rowing, battle up against each other.

and it was a close finished between four boats.

So this where the judges stand to get the final result.

After the final race, all contestant gathered in front of the grandstand and the prizes presentation ceremony begun.
