Gawai visit to Kampung Benuk

On the 1st day of Gawai, I went to visit my best friend, Mola. It takes around 45mins to reach her Kampung - Kampung Benuk.

Pic taken at the long house with Mola. (Ms Kampung Benuk.. hehe!)

According to Mola, this is called GONG, their Bidayuh tradition.

This is SANGGAR, they will circle the SANGGAR, pray and chant with their own language on the eve of gawai.

Pic taken with Mola's family after we wallap all the delicious cuisine prepared by Mola's mum.. Thx aunty ^_^
