Location : Kampung Sadir, Padawan, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
From Iban territory to Bidayuh territory. Set off early at 9am from Paku Undup to make it on time for the ‘nyarok’ event at Kampung Sadir. Was surprised to learn that at the last minute this year’s reciprocal partner switched twice from Suruh Engkadok to Suruh Tembawang and eventually settled for Kampung Mangkau although about 10 of Penghulu Sani’s family and fellow villagers did join the Mangkau delegates.
Good to see the Minister of Tourism Dato James Dawos stayed on till late in the night just to mingle with Sadir folks and Mangkau visitors. Never knew him to be such a ‘kaki karaoke’! He must have sung more than 10 songs to entertain the crowd. Sarawakian ministers should learn to be humble and interactive like him.
Even during the ‘paren’ ceremony he humbly joined the line in pampering the Indonesian guests with tuak, snacks and all kinds of goodies-good culture seen in Sadir only. A very simple and nice way of making your guests feel like VIPs. Keep that up Sadir folks!
