Its that time of the year again…

This year, Tambunan kicked of the festive May as the first district in Sabah to crown the girl who would represent Tambunan to the state level Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan 2017. After that every weekend in May this year is basically filled with district level Kaamatan celebration, couldn’t blame the rush since Fasting month will begin on the 27th of May.

I am not really sure what to expect from this year’s Kaamatan thou. One thing for sure, I will end up at Hongkod Koisaan again this year hoping to capture usable photos but usually I will end up going home with a lot of empty space in my memory card 😀 .  Never the less, I am curious to see which sub-ethnic will be featured by Sabah Museum this year, never fail to amaze me.

 

 

In 2016, I had the chance to meet the Dusun Sandayoh from Paitan.
