Yesterday, what a boring day and a little bit tension in learning Wordpress, I just sit down in front of my computer. I just not familiar with add and remove some code in order to customize my wordpress css template. When come to evening around 5pm, and then suddenly my second brother inviting me to join them to visit KDCA (Kadazandusun Cultural Association) also know with the other popular name called Hongkod.
Yeah… then I just shut down my computer.. hhehe forget about the Wordpress template, for me it is hard to customize it because I just learn about it. Ok..Ok.. We visit KDCA and of course yesterday I’m not the driver… hehehehe so I'm just relax, actually it is hard to find parking near to this place, because lots of people visit this place from the morning until night.. Here is some photo that I take yesterday,
The big gate entrance to KDCA.
Some of the traditional house
Then suddenly it was raining, wah....Hope.. Rihanna-Umbrella song bring some umbrella to me :D it was raining.. hehehe..so we visit 1 of the traditional house called Lansaran Murut.
After the rain stop, we visit another traditional house but I just don’t remember what the name is. In this traditional house they sell lot of art and handmade item. Nice colorful.
Next is visit agriculture and food industry corner, here we can see some technology that been used in cultivate paddy to make it grow fast.
This is KDCA hall with a big gong in front of the entrance hall.
Then, after that we go home.. yeah.. ohh before that, long time ago in my older post about sompoton, this is giant sompoton outside the entrance gate but made from rock hehehe.. just for decoration.
Ok.. that is the story and photo that we visit KDCA for Kaamatan, actually there is lot of activity inside there but most of them performed in the morning..

What is Kaamatan Festival? In the kadazandusun culture, “Kaamatan” or other word “Magavau” is the special festival or celebration to respect the “Bambazon” also known as paddy spirit. This tradition is always being performed long and long long…….time ago until now days it became a special holiday in Sabah, just to celebrate this Kaamatan Festival. Thanks to Tun Haji Mohd Fuad Stephens or Donald Stephens, was the first Chief Minister of the state of Sabah in Malaysia. Why? He was the man who brings this Kaamatan Festival as a special holiday in Sabah and being approved by Majlis Undangan Kerajaan Koloni since 1960. Yeah…..holiday..30th and 31st May. There is lots activity in Sabah like, Sugandoi (Singing Competitions) , Unduk Ngadau (Beauty Contest) , Mipulos (Arm Wrestling) and more.
Well as you know, Kaamatan refers to paddy, harvesting period, which is from the traditional rituals culminating and finally to Kaamatan or Magavau or Harvest Festival. (In Bahasa Pesta Kaamatan) There several rituals stages, Bobohizan or Bobolian (ritual specialist) play an important role in the rituals stage. You can read more about the stages (CLiCK HERE).
Now days, Bobohizan or Bobolian (ritual specialist) are become less, most of the generation already forget about it. This is because of the modern era now become more high level and the religion like Christian and others also playing role. Hehehe… anyway.. in Sabah 30th and 31st May is the holiday for Kaamatan, there is lot of activity. I hope I can go and visit Kaamatan Festival at other place like Hongkod and my friend’s house.

This is the name of each part of this music instrument. There is “Lombohon” first and second, “Korandabit Atas” and “Korandabit Bawah” which is refer as up and down “Korandabit”. Others four short pipes called “Kombitan”. This entire pipe are tie together using Rattan, also we called it “Rotan” in malay word. All pipes are made from “Sumbiling” one kind of bamboo type that we can get from Ranau to Keningau Sabah area. Lastly, we used “Sopinit” to stick all pipes with a dry empty skin gourd. Anyway.. this is simple “sompoton” and it is much different with other pro and advance instrument.
This is how "Sompoton" sounds look like, but the introduction is using other music instrument called "Bungkau" heheh..the rest is "Sompoton".

When I look what happen to “Parsi” mouth, it was bleeding then one of his teeth are broke but still hanging in front of his mouth. Maybe that piece of teeth takes some time to drop it by itself but I just can’t see “Parsi” action that uncomfortable, so I decide to help “Parsi” to take out his teeth. Then, using my hand I manage to take “Parsi” teeth out that hanging in front of his mouth. Hehe..In the beginning I just use some tool but it is hard to capture “Parsi” teeth that is small and “Parsi” became scare then what to do I just use my hand.
Now I just remember where I put my cat’s teeth, here is the picture. I add some ruler so we can make some measurement. Getting to know my all cat’s name :D from the older post, “Parsi” is one of them.
Now "Parsi" always look happy as usual and love to play with me
