Gulu-Gulu | A tribute to the past

It was an honour to be able to be here in this amazing annual event for Sabah.

SabahFest is an annual event that introduces our sabahan cultures, from local delicacies all the way up to fashion and even traditions to the people, be it tourists, semenanjung peeps, and even for our own locals. yes. I 'sampah lau'. hahaha that's why I had an extra good time!
in kadazandusun is 'a long time ago' similar to the Malay word, 'Dulu'

this year, Gulu-Gulu was the main theme that tells the story of our dear Sabahan legendary warrior, Mat Salleh during the colonial era. it was a musical theatre where the story is presented through dance, songs and music through the timelines of historical significance.

did you know it was believe that his wife, was believe to have mystical powers and that she cannot put her feet on the ground? I especially enjoy the colours and costumes throughout the play! so much blings yet so authentic to Sabah's culture.

an all time favourite closing with Tinggi-Tinggi Gunung Kinabalu!

this year's features ethic groups on stages via traditional dances and costumes includes Kadazan Penampang, the Dusun Liwan of Ranau, Bajau Sama of Semporna, Suluk Sandakan, and the Dusun of Tambunan.

they had handicraft and traditional food showcases as well!
get a taste of Sabah! Hinava is always my favourite.

until next magical day,
