Borneo Giveaway *Update

Giveaway Banner

Harvest Festival is just around the corner for both Sabah and Sarawak. The Kaamatan festival is an annual event in the cultural life of the Kadazandusuns of Sabah since time immemorial. This ceremony is now celebrated at village, district and state levels annually (30 - 31 May). While, Gawai Day or Gawai Dayak is a festival celebrated in Sarawak on 1 June every year. It is both a religious and social occasion for the native ethnic groups in Sarawak which includes the Iban, Bidayuh and the Orang Ulu.

This mean I am going back home to celebrate Gawai Dayak with my family, relatives and friends. My holiday season will start from 29 May till 4 June which means that I would not be 24/7 in front of my laptop for any internet surfing unless there is time for me to do so. But I would not leave my reader with empty thought. Thus, me and Elara has decided to throw out a Borneo Giveaway. We both celebrate Gawai Dayak so we love to share our celebration with our readers. Here is some of the items that we love to give out to our lucky readers.
