Previously, Longhouse trip…sagging boobs ARGHH my eyes!!!
After that, we reached my friend’s pintu. Longhouse are divided into Family rooms called Pintu(door), one door is for a family.
First thing I noticed upon arriving is that everyone here speaks Iban language. Abuden. They do speak Sarawak Malay/Sarawak language or even English for some but with heavy Iban slang in it. I can hardly understand too.
Most of the time, I have no idea what they are talking about. All I did was smile. XD
I did picked up a couple of words like.
Nama – What
Makai – Eat
Jalai – Walk
Pulai – Back
EngKa – Don’t Want
Ka – Want
Manok – Chicken
Janik – Pork/Pig
Air Wom – Waterfall
Nyirup – Drink
Tambak – Stupid
Lol most of the words are related with what I did over there. Food, Bath & scolding PA. LOL
The longhouse we stayed are really very isolated, due to the little amount of people who stay around this area, no basic utilities are provided here as it is not profitable to do so.
My PA has warned me about this and asked me to prepare entertainment of my own for these few day. Actually, I wasn’t the only city cat there, the PA’s brother has not been visiting the longhouse for almost 10 years. So he too are not used to it.
The first thing he did when he arrived was…
=.= Sibling alike. Overly Attached Girlfriend and Boyfriend.
PA Papa also offered me his phone but…
*writing my will*
PA papa~~ Why you kept pouring cold water on me. T3T *i iz foreveralone cat*
Seriously, I was having a bad luck, one of the family is having a wedding dinner back in the cat city during Gawai, hence most of the families are not coming back longhouse for Gawai.
Beside that, the solar battery to our Pintu was spoiled. So the laptop I brought with me is just a piece of useless metal there. GG.com.
Lucky, I had my camera with me. So I went around and took so photos..
The Verandah where everyone hangouts because it’s freaking hot in the Pintu.
The bags you seeing in the photo are all Rice. There are so many rice that you can eat for months to year. As the storage hut is under renovation, hence they kept all the rice at the Verandah.
Le inside of the Pintu.
The traditional longhouse. No partition, no rooms, one big room for all. Living room, bedroom, kitchen, dining room in one, 4 in one combo XD. Because the kitchen is in the same room, the room is usually very hot when they are preparing food.
The source of heat in the room. Our traditional old school stove. XD Cooking food the old school way because gas stove is too mainstream. hahaha
What I’m seeing next is the most shocking part of the room.
Behold, the toilet, balcony and bathroom. XD
What’s so shocking?
For unknown reason, I feel insecure..
