Rungus Long House

Bites Tale : You looked so pale and thin, it actually shocked me... please take good care of yourself.... please...

We spent the rest of the day at Bavaggazo Rungus Longhouse.

Rungus tribe is the main ethnic group in Kudat and are renowed in for their skills in making colourful beaded accessories, basket and cloth weaving. Staying at the longhouse is really a new experience for us, the most difficult part for me is to bath with no water heater.. (shy... i'm a spoilt brat, i know!)... and to bath together with men! Hahaha... of cos in different cubicle.. but still.. there's still not enough "privacy" during bath time. But i do really enjoy the time when we were all standing side by side and brush our teeth after dinner. That was fun.

We were greeted and were brought to the rooms we will be staying overnight. We then unpacked, rest and chit chat while having our tea break.
