Pesta (Festival) Birumuh Serian Sarawak

Location : Danu Lake, Serian, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Thanks to our friend Alexianto for alerting us to this event in Serian town to celebrate the elevation of Serian district to a division, a milestone for the Bidayuh race. So Sarawak has now 12 divisions in total. We missed the morning session as we were late, so no photos on the cultural dances.  The event was held at the mini stadium next to the iconic Danu Lake of Serian.

Arrived at the venue amidst thundering roars from the RC (remote control) boat racing that was going on at the lake. Could not believe such small machines could produce so much power and noise.  Good to see the lake put to good use at last!  Bidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sportBidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sport Bidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sport Bidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sport Bidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sport  International racers came from as far as Tenggarong , Samarinda, Tarakan, Pontianak (Indonesia), Brunei, Sabah and Thailand.  Bidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sport Bidayuh, Borneo, Brunei, culture, Danu Lake, dayak, harvest festival, Iban, indigenous, Indonesia, International, Kalimantan, Kuching, Malaysia, outdoors, Sarawak events, Tasik Danu, water sport According to my new found friend who is a RC boat designer/producer, Mr Abdul Latiff,  Kuching racers came in top – something to revv about.
