A tribe on the north of Borneo.. Here I'm..

The signboard above was designed by friend of mine YUS, for USM's (Health Campus) Borneo Night 2 years ago. It was hanged at the hall's main enterence

We actually very synonym with the word "My Culture, My Pride".. But are we really understand the treasured meaning of it? Speaking about culture, in Malaysia when people discuss about unity they will only focus on three major race which are Malay, Chinese and Indian. They forgot about other races which are not to say a minority but still forming about 1/3 of Malaysian's population which people usually called them as Native Sabah and Sarawak (Bumiputra)..

The little unduk ngadau (winner) and the 1st runner up (right) were my cousins

As for me, I'll admit that I'm not good in term of practicing my culture but untill now I still tried very hard to become a good KadazanDusun generation.. Actually, I'm not a pure either Dusun or Kadazan. I'm a mixed blood, Dusun Gana + Kadazan Membakut + Murut Tenom.. My dad actually a pure Dusun Gana and my mom is a mix Kadazan Murut but she is more to Kadazan than Murut.

Ever heard about Dusun Gana? U can only found Dusun Gana in Keningau which majority found in Bingkor. Thier language is almost totally diffrent from Dusun Tambunan language (the most popular dusun in sabah). When people speak, the sound and tone almost similar to Murut Language.. Ceh, sa ni macam orang linguistik pula. It is my opinion la, dunno yours.. But that make a diffrence between other Dusun la..

My brother's wedding.. They were wearing a simple Dusun Costume..

Oh ya, back to the past, during my campus life in Kelantan, it was only a few Sabahan student there. U can count them by fingers.. During my time, most of them from Ranau and Keningau not bad lor.. From Keningau were me, Sly (mayan mantad Bingkor Baru)- but cannot speak and understand dusun gana eventhough his father is gana, and the other 2 sumandaks from Toboh Laut, Evelyn and Drorise- Dusun Tambunan. I still remember how the Sabahan's sumandak humiliate me when they challenge me to speak Dusun. Then, I spoke Dusun Gana to them and of course they was like 'terpinga-pinga' coz didn't understand even 1 word I spoke untill they called me a "Dusun Sesat".. Then I explained them about Dusun Gana. Finally they understood..

Here are some of my strengths and weaknesses as a KadazanDusun:

WEAKNESSES:
1) Cannot speak fluently both Dusun and Kadazan. But if I have to communicate with those older generation who cannot speak Malay, they still can understand mine lor.Huhuhu.. The basic I know:

Nakanam kono mindogu Dusun Gana?

Toboni dowon in..

Nongo kuan nu laid?

Masiu masaap!!

Ni pun macam salah-salah jak..Ya, I guess I'm bad in term of language.. Have to brush up more..Duhh...

2) From first impression, people thought I'm Chinese. I have a Chinese look even Sabahan people might misjudge my race.

3) I can do 'Kampung' chores but usually if the kerja kampung yang berat-berat I have to force myself to do lor. But kalau setakat kerja2 tabasan, senang jak ba tu..


Both of the pics above taken 2 years ago (If I'm not mistaken).. It was my holiday break in USM. Back to Sabah and helping my uncle in paddy field..

STRENGTHS:
1) I tolerate Tapai very well.. Can "LUNDUS" somemore.. Wanna challenge me? But depends of the taste la.. If the tapai's taste is sour like vinegar, for sure the next day will got diarrhea.. Another taste of tapai is "Manis Pahit Bau Tahi", this one of coz yaksss... Belum lagi yang 3 negara.. Huhuhuhu..

With YUS, my best friend ever, drinking TAPAI in SAMPA!!!

2) I can do every process of planting paddy. From the process of 'menggabur', 'menanam', 'menginsakot', 'menantab', 'angkat tinaun', 'melapos', 'mengipas', 'membayut', 'menjemur' untill the rice can be eaten.. huhuhu...

"Mengipas" using "kipasan".. Modern already..

***Sorry, some of the words are in a Dusun Language.. Those viewers who cannot understand find it yourself***

Even I got lotta waknesses then strengths, I still proud to be KadazanDusun.. Still trying to improve those weaknesses..

Not bad. I am always impress by people trying hard to speak their mother's tongue eventhough their parents are to blame for not teaching the dialect in the first place.You have not forgotten paddy farming too which is to be applauded...I 4 one do not know HOW although I am as much a native as u are..which is a shame really..
