Today after breakfast we went to Sarawak Cultural Village. It was about 45min journey from the hotel. It is located on the foothills of legendary Mount Santubong. The entrance fee for adult is RM60 n children RM30. It sounded costly but it was worth a visit.
The Cultural Village comprises a unique collection of authentic traditional buildings. Known as the "Living Museum" the Cultural Village portrays the distinct cultures of Sarawak’s many ethnic groups. Our first visit was the Rumah Bidayuh. We experienced walking on the tiny steep bamboo bridge. Sape pakai kasut tinggi memang tak lepas ah nak naik jambatan ni.
Next we went to the Iban house. I like the Iban house as it is so spacious. We got to see people demonstrating cooking kuih rose/loyang n kuih karas (I forgot what do they call of this kuih in Sarawak). Tempted looking at it Nabila wanted to tried out n we bought a few pieces.
After about 2 hours walking all of us were very tired, sweaty n thirsty. I was glad that we managed to visit all the houses. The last stop is to watch the cultural show in the auditorium. We arrived a bit late n the show has started. The auditorium was packed n we didn’t get the seat but still all of us enjoying the show.
We had our lunch there n tried the local cuisine. All of us were really enjoying our day here. Nabila n Hakeem was very enthusiastic n asked lots of questions. This was really a true experience for them. We were here for a half day n it was really a fascinating moments to all of us.
I am sure all the Sarawakians are proud of their own special culture n ethnic.
