Star Rainforest Movie Festival @ Sarawak Cultural Village, Part two of Seven

Next stop is the Iban house, Iban live in all areas of Sarawak. Many of the Iban live in a longhouse, in a longhouse it can reach 50 or more rooms, each with different family, all live under one roof.


Welcome to the longhouse of the Iban village.


A strange looking tree trunk, there a paddle under it. Don’t ask me, cause I don’t know that it use for


a mini rumah Iban


The corridor of the longhouse, in the middle there’s a handmill to grind straw. I had give it a try, and it was actually quite easy to grind.

Now lets go inside the house and see how it looks like.


Inside the house was easily furnished, with some ancient vase...


some funny looking mask hanging on the wall...


some funny loosing chicken, bird shape thing hanging on the wall again...
