Gawai Dayak 2006
This is a wee bit early to wish everyone Selamat Ari Gawai, but since this blog will be a bit inactive for the coming Gawai Dayak, I would like to take the opportunity to wish all of Nadai Nama's Blog a Happy Gawai Dayak 2006. As usual there will be a lot of activities before and after Gawai like dinners and some barbecue sessions with friends and relatives. So the Internet World will be put on hold for a while as I catch up on good times with family, relatives and friends.
The dinner setup (sorry the picture is a bit shaky)
Jennifer Jack was one of the artises performing at the dinner - here she is rendering the song 'Cemburu' - her hit single
Beauty is best described in pictures, so I won't be blabbering so much in the blog about it. At least my missus will know what I have been up to with my trusty camera. Though my baby Shania insists that she wants to tag along whenever I get near any of the contestants.
The beauties line up
There was a theme play about Rentap and Bukit Sadok after the dinner which we also attended. Among the VIPs was the legendary Puteri Gunung Ledang, Tiara Jacqueline.
Part of the Bukit Sadok Stage Setup
The play was good - with the sound system also. The only thing that the organisers have never learnt is the audience's viewing angle. They have been staging plays like this for the past few years which I attended and they the viewing opportunity for those guests who do not have the VIP tags are restricted. Some people have to stand on the chairs. Its Gawai and I am in no mood to blame anyone at the moment. I just hope that the organisers look into this next time around. Once again, Thank you Clarence and also Selamat Ari Gawai Dayak 2006 to everyone!
Note: My apologies for some of the blurry pictures. It is due to the camera's 'night mode' not working properly. It means I have to change my camera soon. Most of the pictures were poorly lighted. That means a less beer this Gawai.
