AB goes walkabout – KK

Heppy Barfday bro! Semoga panjang umur dan murah rezeki…


I’m back from my very very short walkabout to KK. The primary objective of my trip was to capture a mixed marriage ceremony (Pakistani bride and Kadazan/Malay groom) which took place in a place called Limbanak about 15 minutes from Kota Kinabalu. The event was also covered by a camera crew from RTM for a cultural series which will be aired later this year. The heat was sweltering and by the time I was done, I was seriously looking forward to a looong dip in the condo pool πŸ˜€


The road to Limbanak


Had to make sure I remembered the spelling of the place somehow πŸ˜‰


Lovely young ladies dressed in traditional Kadazan garb

Senyum la ba… heheeh


One of the customs involves the B&G feeding each other…. sound familiar?

Gettin jiggy wit it! Doin da Semazau!


The program host from RTM was sporting enough to sing for the guests πŸ™‚


It was a sizzling hot day but the sunset was enough to cool anyone down….

    AB, the way she wore the long sleeve blouse inside her baju kadazanlah. Don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone did that before. She could actually have it made into a long sleeve like the Papar style. Even I modified my wedding baju kadazan and had it made in a more demure short-sleeved, instead of the original sleeveless style.

    By the way, it’s obviouslah that the bride is a Pakistani – no Kadazandusun or even Bajau face at all (in my eyes lah) – and they will have very beautiful children I can tell!

    Ya its an interesting variation of the original design πŸ™‚ Do u still have yr wedding baju? heheh

    The bride is pure pakistani, the groom is half-kadazandusun half-malay πŸ™‚ and yes their off-spring will be gorgeous!
