Sabah's culture continues to amaze

PENAMPANG: The beauty of Sabah’s cultures and traditions need to be preserved.

This was the call from Matthie Flegs of France and Jessica Smulders of Holland to the people of Sabah when met at the Monsopiad Cultural Village near here yesterday.

Both of them were visiting the centre for the first time and were impressed with the efforts undertaken by the centre to preserve Kadazan culture.

“The cultures of the people here are very beautiful. I hope they will continue to preserve them,” said Matthie yesterday.

Matthie, who presently works in Bintulu, said that it was the second time he witnessed the dance performance of the people in Borneo, one of which was during dinner at a restaurant.

He hoped that the culture will not disappear as had many other cultures in the world today.

His friend, Jessica, said she enjoyed her stay in Kota Kinabalu.

A maiden visitor to Borneo, Jessica said that she found the people here very friendly. “I truly enjoy my stay here,” she said.

The Monsopiad Cultural Centre is a one-of-a-kind establishment in Sabah, showcasing mainly the heritage of Kadazan folks.
