Mari mari mari mari mariiiiiiiiii (^_^)
Have u heard about Mari Mari Cultural Village?
It's in inanam. Along the road leading to Kionsom waterfall.
Its the biggest cultural village in Sabah, i guess.
And full of the exciting cultural activities that you can participate.

hehe.. i was on tour with my students.
The tour package was quite expensive. rm130++ for an adult visitor. The students got half the price. I got it fOr freeeeeee hehehe..

I heard quite a lot of bad impression before i get to visit the place.
1. It's expensive.
2. It's a fake.
3. It's a double fake.

1. It's expensive: yep, for an independent visitor. since everything must be arranged with a travel agent. but for the environment, tour guide, activities, n buffet food..i think it's worth it. hehe..i guess.

2. It's a fake: i dont think so. You should go n visit ur self. the place is wonderful. reminds me of a real kampung.


3. It's a double fake: i hate to say this but.. i just realized this when one of my student mention this to me. It's a fake becos after each visit in the cultural houses.. u can see the murut/kadazan/lundayeh boy or man or lady just now all transform into a modern day one-of-us. - in front of us. I mean, they were walking around us with torn jeans , black glasses and stuff. (maybe they have just finished their shift) Well.. It just ruined everything. so much for the cultural feel.

ANYWAY.. here are some pictures i'd like to share.

The Lundayeh house. this one's built just nearby the river. the walls are made from tree bark.

A Dusun traditional house. Cute. hehe.. complete with spider webs. big ones. :)

We get to cook our own lunch that day. The traditional way. Chicken in bamboo anyone? sedap..
This one was used for us during the welcoming ceremony. hehe..

I really love the Bajau house. Huge. And this is just the kitchen.

Spot the lecturer. :)

The Rungus longhouse
