Kuching Trip Part 3 - Traditional Viagra?

Posted by Joshua |

Back to my Kuching Trip!

The next day morning after we had an incredible supper, we are forced requested to have an exercise in the morning.

Only left 4 of us, the bloggers as the medias & artistes when to the local radio station, Cat FM in Kuching town.

Spinzer look so excited yo. Had about 30 minutes sweating is great supposingly 1 hour but we came late :P

After that we head for a heavy breakfast before the next activities.


Did try out the famous Sarawak laksa also, early in the morning somemore.


Ordered fruits juice to reduces spicy that we had.


We were treated as VIP guests and brought us loitering around the SVC. Shown and tell us the histories of each tribes.

The 1st visit is the Rumah Bidayuh.

The native people of Orang bidayuh are specialist in Bamboo, the can make everything with it including weapons.

Their houses built about 2 floors high and sealed with hard wood on the floor to prevent being attack by theirs enemies.

Check out the video below, he will explain the history of Orang Bidayuh.


2nd pit stop was the Rumah Iban where I stayed.

Orang Iban has the highest population among all the native people in Sarawak.

Next we visited Rumah Orang Ulu.

Orang Ulu mostly stay up hill of the jungle to avoid unnecessary attack by their enemies.

Met a naked man play guitar in the long house.......... -.-"


Hahah! Joking only lar, he did wore a sexy underwear or better known as cawat (if I spelled it correctly)


Rumah Melanau is the Sarawak 1st skyscraper or to be called as apartment.

There are 3 floors in this tall house and each windows has a room for 1 family. Mean in a house of this can have a very big family.

The house was built high to prevent being attack by enemies and they can splash hot water from their house if the enemy try to attack them.

To build such house would required 5 years to clean the land & another 5 years to build the house. Wahseh!

Then we went to the chinese house. The chinese there are mostly farmers and traders.

They planted pepper and also do trading such as rice & bird nest.

Saw this antique music box & radio.

Look cool right?

The 2nd last stop is the Rumah Orang Melayu.

The house nothing much different in Semenanjung Malaysia.

We did witness the making of Kuih Kapit and Kuih Bahulu


This is how they make Kuih Bahulu in traditional way, they used charcoal in the making.


The last house went is the Rumah Penan.

The Orang Penan live in the woods and never stay in the same place, the moved frequently so they would not have a permanent house.

Because they stayed in the woods, they expertise of course hunting lor.

We tried out the Sumpit, a weapon they use for hunting.


Look at Spinzer, he really got style eh kena or tak kena that is different story lar. Hahahah!


I spotted this so called medicine that they used for toothache and now they used for others purposes.

Their entertainment for the night. lol!

We attend a music class it's more likely a detention class as we need to learn hit the drum with hand by following the rhythm, damn pain & tired you know?


Then we go head for some traditional games.

Bowling with coconut. WTF!

This doesn't stop spinzer to be pro again although the bowling don't have the 3 holes on the coconut. lol!


We also had a something look quite wrong game.

Traditional Golf they claimed, check the video and you will know why. Hahahah!


Phew, what a long post. Do follow me on twitter @tallboyz and stay tune for my coming update on my Kuching trip. :)
