Sabah The Mix Culture State

Many people knew Sabah as The Land Below The Wind and also when asking about what their know about Sabah? their will tells about Mount Kinabalu (yeah!! i already climbed it). But something that people may be didn't sense is about their culture, their mix culture. Because people in Sabah is always open-minded (i think..) so inter-racial marriage always occur in here. And i agree with Datuk Dr Maximmus Ongkili been said in his article recently about inter-racial status in Sabah and Sarawak.

The wedding day

For example..... at the early of September my friend sister who is chinese mix with kimaragang had married with Bajau guy.

Don't believe it? here the pictures...

This ceremony they call it as "Malam mandi bedak"
(bathing with powder night)
Look to the beuatiful lady in pic, she is my friend sister
(chinese mix kimaragang)

and see the lucky man in picture, he is Bajau

clear view

my friend hand (taking picture use his nokia handphone)

What can i say here is Sabah is a trully multiracial state in Malaysia. Many people in Sabah if you ask about they race, they will answer you like this "i'm mix", and sometimes, is difficult to differentiate the faces is it chinese or kadazan dusun or chinese mix kadazan dusun which is we call it as sino kadazan dusun.

Cuti-cuti Malaysia. Holiday in Malaysia where the friendly people waits for you....
