The Kalology Of Keningau
So what would you do when you are assigned deep into the Interior Division for a 3 days and 2 nights assignment?
You bring along your trusted camera, despite knowing you won’t have much time to stroll around snapping photos.
Time constraint is the adversary here. Thus the only day where I am free to do what I love is on the last day itself. Which happen to be Sunday, which is the ‘Tamu Keningau Day’.
In these days of H1N1 fright, always come prepared.
Someone who has been to a Tamu in Keningau mentioned on lucky day, you will come across people selling python meat. I didn’t find any except for these two Labi-labi that will most likely end up in someone’s pot.
There are many traditional products on sale in Tamu Keningau, made by the hands of the elders.
Traditional herb known as Pokuntiou.
Sabah’s famous Tarap fruit.
Selection of seeds for your garden at home.
Even refurbished retro Japanese bicycle in some striking colour!
Kalology refers to science of abstract beauty. Thus this post will not be appropriate without exposition of Keningau’s finest.
Sunday morning sumandak went for Tamu in her cool shades and rattan basket.
Lovely sumandak of Keningau after Sunday’s mass.
And hot sumandak selling some delicious quail meat.
But of course, this lovely shot of Ina is personally the best for me. Who knows, she could be strutting the stage during her younger days in Unduk Ngadau contest?
