The Milky Way is one of the most amazing natural phenomena that one can capture with a camera. It contains 200-300 billion* stars, so dim that the naked eyes cannot distinguish individual stars but a band arching over the night sky.

These two pictures were shot in Bario by Kenneth Lee on 20th July between 1130pm and 1am during the just concluded Bario Food Festival. It is obvious that food isn’t the only experience that captivates a visitor in Bario. We do however have to say that timing is all important in order to gaze at this galaxy.

A #Kelabit #longhouse kitchen is more than a place to cook food. It is also a communal place where the respective open fire place provides warmth from the cold of the #Bario Highlands. Cosy place to keep the feet warm during the night, don’t you think?

A traditional #Kelabit game. A trick to get to the top is to wait till the #bamboo pole has been wiped dry of oil by the many failed attempts. Still it requires great climbing technique to make it all the way to the top to claim your reward. At the just concluded Bario Food Festival 2014.

This will soon be a thing of the past but for now tattoos such as this can still be seen among the elders of the Orang Ulu community. It must have been a painful process for this #Kelabit lady.

Today, 22nd July, is the day Sarawak gained independence from the British 51 years ago, in 1963.

This picture was taken during the pantomime of this auspicious event last year at the Kuching Waterfront - the 50th Anniversary. The flag was the new symbol of this independence. The design has since changed but the three colours have remained.
