Happy Birthday, Den-Den! 17012015

My little Den-Den has turned 2! Yeay! Woohoo!

No, I never wrote about Den-Den. He was born in January 17, 2013 in Sibu, Sarawak. He's the only son of my only brother Canny & Kristy who got married in 2012. Time flies so fast!!

It's a great fun having a little one in our family. (FYI, Den-Den is a master frequent flyer between KK & Sibu, often travel back to mom's hometown to see his grandparents)

Being a 姑姑 Gugu a.k.a. Aunty, I've been learning to keep up with him too because we haven't had a little baby in the family for quite a long, long time, consider the youngest one, Mei-Mei is now 10, going to 11. :P





This is technically a "belated" birthday & I've just missed the birthday cake... (my bad for being late from a meeting)

Yesterday, we had a steamboat dinner to celebrate sister B's birthday (coming Jan 20th) in advance & I did a little impromptu set up for a photo corner with colourful garland strings as backdrop. Simple, it…

Kotobian Tadau Tagazo do Kaamatan!

Kopivosian! Greetings! 
Harvest festival, the highlight of all Natives' celebration in Sabah is just around the corner. Exciting & heat competitions of Unduk Ngadau to see which young lady will be crown Miss Kaamatan.
I participated in the Kaamatan celebration of my husband's clan - Sinakagon Wong Loong on 10 May 2014 at Kg. Ramayah.
There were 2 main events for that day: Unduk Ngadau and Magagung competition. All 5 family branches produced various version of gong beating and rhythm. Every time when the gong beating start, I felt the echo of sound shook to the core of my soul. This is when I realised I have strong Kadazan gene in me too. I am so so proud to be a Sino-Kadazan!
