I was in the interior of Sarawak it was great!

The magnificent Katibas river in the interior of Sarawak!

Iban hospitality and I forgot the word to describe this tradition it it ngajat if I am not mistaken!

We were welcomed by Iban girls in full traditonal dress!

The interior of the long houses is very long so people can lounge around and very modern and a nice communal living!

Finally I got to visit Iban longhouses, the real longhouses, and I am posting some pictures
during my 400 kilometers trip down and up river Rajang and river Katibas!
The Rejang River was murky but as soon as we veered to the left into Katibas river the water starts to change colour to a dark and not as murky.
The Iban are nice and gentle people I have ever come into contact with and unlike the unprofessional and negative perception of them, they are way better than many of the urban Malaysians I have known.
Hurry up go see and visit them now!

Tuan Rusdi,
I hope you didn't confused 'ngajat' with 'ngayau'.
Ngajat=the dance
Ngayau=the head cutting :)
