Sabah Trip (XV) - KDCA (Kadazan Dusun Cultural Association)

On the 4th day, we went to the Gaya Street Sunday Market in the morning. It is some sort like the night market. There are a lot of stalls selling souvenirs, food, plants, and etc. It was very crowded. I only managed to take the photo of the entrance.


Suzane called me. She suppose to meet me up in the Sunday Market. However, she called and said she was coming over to fetch us to have breakfast. We went for dim sum. This is the first time I have dim sum in Sabah. During the studies, I never have dim sum before. We were quite full since we have eaten in the hotel. We just ordered a bit. The dim sum is normal.

After the breakfast, Suzane took us to Penampang, to visit the KDCA. KDCA stands for Kadazan Dusun Cultural Association. At KDCA, you can see all kind of houses by different tribes. HArvest festival (Pesta Keamatan) was held there every year.










Do you know what is this for?


According to Suzane, this is the place for them to celebrate the harvest festival. They will jump up and down in this platform. We tried it as well. :)
















Coming Up Next: UMS (University Malaysia Sabah)
