Location : Kampung Gumbang, Bau, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
When Sebujit was hijacked by Kampung Padang Pan for this year’s Gawai, Kampung Sungkung Senebe of Indonesia had to fill in the gap after Kampung Kadek declined, having their own Gawai commitments over in Indonesia. Hats off to the villagers, taking into consideration their age, having to endure more than 12 hours of walking on foot and putting up the night at Kampung Kapot the midway village. Gumbang should be very proud that Senebe sent 50 over representatives, 2 of them copper ring ladies, for this first joint Gawai. This year’s event also saw a surprise guest in the form of ‘Exposure’ a photography group from Bengkayang, 24 of them. Some of them familiar faces as we met them last year at Sebujit.
