The state-level Gawai Dayak Celebration Cancelled

May 24, 2009

"State Urban Development and Tourism Minister Datuk Michael Manyin said the federal government had allocated RM650,000 to hold the festival."

He said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would be there! Wow! Cool, I too wana be there, but I can't. =(

The state-level celebration has been cancelled for this year out of respect for the chief minister's wife, Datuk Amar Laila Taib, who passed away last month. Al-fatihah.

On June 1, about 1.5 million people of the Dayak community in Sarawak will celebrate the Gawai Dayak festival! Wow! That's a lot of people! I wonder how they celebrate it..

Shine on,
