Iban Wedding

Never taught that attending and become hired photographer for my friend's wedding gain me a new experience. This event took place at Bintulu,Sarawak on 28th May 2011.

Iban wedding really respect the visitor where you will be welcome by the tradition "Niki Temuai".
Niki Temuai (as i observb) is kind of tradition where the owner of the house or long house welcome all the visitor and give a drink call "Tuak". And also hear you a "Taboh" 's music and a dance call "Ngajat". They will bring you to walk around the "Ruai" of Long house. Is i am using too many word that you cant undestand??
because all this word is hard to translate and i think they use this word to keep the originality.

nevermind....see the picture above.. will update later because i dont really have idea to write this ceremony. To complicated to write...need to ask my parent this Iban Wedding ceremony in detail....

Bubur Tasak Orang Iban Di Serian


Bubur Tasak is Iban language mean CENDOL / BUBUR CHA-CHA in malay
i dont know how to say it in english

On the last Mother day celebration, me and family went to mom's kampong at serian (Kpg Merang) to celebrate the day with our grandma and aunt...
we reach there early that we get to see our grandma do the traditional bubur tasak
This is the first time in whole life i seen people done such thing in front of my eyes. As for my other cousin also. Well,frankly speaking...we are not born in the kampong and not live in the kampong...for sure la we dont even know about this. Me and my sis have help my grandma...and it is not a easy job... until i get my hand pain.
i dont really know the ingredient but for sure they use RICE
Bubur tasak one of the main dishes for them... for long time ago in the 60s and 70s you cant expect to have 'great-great' food such as KFC etc....seeing how they do and tasted it....it make me to appreciate the hard work.  

here some picture of it...not the whole process...maybe someday i will write an entry how to make bubur tasak step by step... really nice and tasty! thanks to grandma...
