Selamat Hari Gawai!

To all my Dayak friends,


SELAMAT HARI GAWAI, GAYA GURU GERAI NYAMAI!

For everyone's information, Hari Gawai is celebrated on the first day of June every year by the Dayaks (native ethnics) of Sarawak, marking the end of a paddy harvesting season and the beginning of a new planting season. At the longhouses, there are several activities/entertainment to celebrate this big occasion which includes dancing and singing in a traditional way. Not to forget, lots of food and also tuak (rice wine) would also be served.
