Harvest Festival 2011/Pesta Kaamatan 2011

The Harvest Festival for the ethnic group of Kadazan Dusun in Sabah falls on 30th & 31st May each year, it's public holidays for us in Sabah. We will be having 4 off days continuously end of this month with Monday and Tuesday being the Public Holiday after the weekend.

Usually the line up of celebrations start a month earlier. We can feel the festivity atmosphere when we stepped into Centre Point shopping mall last Saturday with kadazan songs, local handicrafts booths and the exhibitions of students water colouring featuring natives Kadazan Dusun and Mt Kinabalu at the main hall.

My girls were busy roaming around the booths checking out what's for sale. I took some pictures as if I am a tourist.
