Although Borneo Festival was not in the programme during my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, when the opportunity arose, I grabbed it. After all, despite being a Malaysian, Borneo is like an entirely different country to the ignorant me.
This Borneo Festival was organised in conjunction with Hari Gawai and Pesta Kaamatan (harvest festivals in Sabah and Sarawak) that fell in late May. Held in Central Market Kuala Lumpur, it was a great introduction of the world of Borneo to locals from West Malaysia and to foreigners alike.
Hopefully, their interest is piqued enough to want to fly to Borneo to discover Sabah and Sarawak first hand!
No doubt, this Borneo Festival is long over but I still would like to document it for future reference, particularly the fashion show where traditional costumes of the various tribes were showcased. Hopefully, I got everything right!
