The Dusun Aroma

I like to put up some photos that resembles a fraction of the Dusun - my race, my people.

For those who have no Idea what is Dusun all about, you may read more info about it here.

So here goes my photos.

( ALL PHOTOS ARE COPYRIGHTED. Please contact me in advance if you want to have any or part of the photos. Thank you.)

1. A photo of my mother and her friends and grandchild. They were harvesting ground peanut ~ a trial planting to replace the normally paddy fields. Mother was the one with sirung on the far left.

2. My sister and her child. They were at my Aunt (Innai) to help her with some farming. She grows Nanas (sweet pineapple).

3. Mangasok activity. The 1st step in Paddy planting. Basically a process of growing paddy seedlings before planting it in the actual paddy field. From the pictures , you can understand the simple process.

4. The original traditional house of the Dusun. All made of wood and bamboos. No nails, just rattans to tie each parts. I took this picture when I was 18 years old (1st time holding a camera). Now the house has been replace by modernisation. I miss this house a lot. The green in the foreground is actually the grown paddy seedlings.


Till then. Cheers!
