Borneo Highlanders dinner

Last night Rining had 3 extra tikcets to the Borneo Highllanders dinner, me, Eric and Hensley went. The dinenr was held at mega hotel which is 2 minutes walking distance from my house. The Sarawak Chief Minister and his wife was there to attend the dinner, the dinner started off with a couple of performance from the Kelabit community.

The chief Minister and his wife was given loca Kelabit names, which i can't remember. The food was alright, the organizers put too much tables in the ballroom, it ended up too crowded and there was hardly any space for the waiters to move around.

When i saw them serving this dish, it reminded me of what Hensley said. He told me nearly went psycho eating it because there was nothing else to eat when he was at Kampung. It's call Nu'balaya(correct me if i'm wrong) a traditional Kelabit/Lun Bawang food. Its made from bario Rice, compact in banaa leave.
