North Borneo Rungus Cultural Safari 2D/1N ~ Kudat, Sabah Borneo


Adrian invited me to a take a stroll round the grounds and to visit one of the longhouses in which his grandmother still lives in. it was very dim in the longhouse as the sun was setting. Unlike the traditional Rungus longhouse, this one was much larger and the living quarters had lofts were the family could sleep. Cooking, dining and studying were done downstairs. I noticed that one of the units had been converted into a little sundry shop downstairs where else the loft was still used by the family as sleeping quarters. Ladies were still weaving in the dark. They had their backstrap loom firmly placed and were working hard to meet a deadline for an order. It's not really a wonder why some return home to stay despite being away and having experienced the world. This lifestyle holds a community spirit. Something that cities no longer provide, and something that if we did have, then perhaps there would be more tolerance on earth.
