We started our day off with yummy food!
Pork Porridge with You Char Koay
and Sarawak Laksa!
(it does taste as good as it looks)
I've notice that the taogeh there is longer than what we are accustomed to in PG
OOTD - haha..
First stop: Sarawak Cultural Village!
BTW, it is also the place for the rainforest world music festival
where people from all over the world come together to make music!
There are a total of 7 types of houses available there:
Cina, Melayu, Melanau, Orang Ulu, Iban, Penan and Bidayuh
Rumah Cina is our first stop, mainly it is similar to our ancestor's house, very nice decoration tho
We learn how they pick and process pepper and birds nest
Then we went to Rumah Melayu, with traditional Malay song playing at the background
Rumah Melanau was REALLY HIGH
Most of the house is connected by wooden stairs like this.
The stepping area is really small, so we have to be really careful when walking.
Imagine, the handles are only built for tourist, in real Melanau or other tribe's house they don't have railings to support them, people would just walk up that piece of log!
We then went to the Panggung Budaya to enjoy the performance.
The performance was really entertaining & informative.
Different tribes were introduced through traditional dances.
There's even handsome Orang Ulus entertaining us with their funny stunts and audience participation!
A definite Must-See!
We continued to Rumah Orang Ulu, where one of the friendly Orang Ulu showed us how they make Parang for the HeadHunters.
Scary, but fun!
Walking along the bamboo bridge
Rumah Iban and Bidayuh is longer and much stable cause they would usually stay longer, up to months before they move.
Traditional paintings outside of the house
This would make a great profile pic right? XD
We finished off Penan in a rush as it was getting hot.
Then we walked to our resting place for the night, Permai Rainforest Resort!!!
We are sweating and tired when we arrived there.
But excited as this is the place where many netizens had recommended,
Staying on the Treetop!
Met a friendly (hopefully not poisonous) snake on the way to our tree top
Aaaaaaaaaand there it is!
Beautiful view on top
Bed nicely done
Place nicely lit
Whassup you asked?
Just chillin outside with Mother Nature
I'd say it's a very romantic place for couples and for family to stay at.
We later went to swim at the Jungle pool, which I thought was a genius idea!
But good thing there's no blood sucking leeches there.
We also went to Beach no 2 situated right after the Jungle pool
And that's how we spend our day 2!
Jump to that
