Once again, the indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak will be celebrating the colourful Cultural Harvest Festival ("Kaamatan" in Sabah; and "Gawai" in Sarawak) to celebrate the end of the paddy-harvesting period.

"Kaamatan" culminates on 30 and 31 May of each year, which are public holidays for the state of Sabah, whereas, the "Gawai" or "Gawai Dayak" on 01 and 02 June, which are also an official holiday for Sarawak. would like to wish all Kadazans, Dusuns, Muruts, Rungus, etc. as well as the Ibans, Bidayuhs and all Dayaks (note: Dayak is a collective name for the native ethnic groups of Sarawak) a Happy and Safe Harvest Festival.

Our office will be closed from today, Friday, 28th May 2010 (which is Wesak Day, also a public holiday) until Tuesday, 1st June 2010.
