(This Part 1 of 3 features the Handicraft Showcase & Traditional Food- Sabah Fest 2016)

For the recently held 2016 event, Sabah Fest took audiences back in time with the staging of Gulu Gulu– a tribute to the past.

Taste Of Discovery @ Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu

My honest review dedicated to Debra and Sebastian (Both residing in Moscow, Russia) and to the Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu 


1-The Discovery of myself

I am a Sabahan and I am now proud to say that I belong to the Kadazan Dusun ethnic group. Unfortunately and honestly, I don’t speak the language nor do I know everything about its culture. The reason was, I spent too much time outside Sabah.

@kulafoods with foodies, Le Meridien and Sabah Tourism officers

I am still amazed how a simple hashtag# in my Instagram account led to a bigger thing, bringing @kulafoods closer to their objective(s) in #kulasafari, the journey to the secret jungle, in search of healthy and traditional food.

A Teaser to Sabah Traditional Food


I did plan to start this blog with a post of Sabah in terms of geography, the location and factual things. However, I decided that it is best to highlight one of the work that I got myself involved recently. I will write a lengthy post about it later as I must give way to @kulafoods Australia first to publish their version of this topic. They will do that pretty soon. This is their project actually and I was just helping them organizing the cooking demo. So, without further ado, say hello to the Sago Worms.
