Christmas at Longhouse

The weather was oh-so-wonderful despite the flood in Sibu town... we finally reach the longhouse after the 3 hours bumpy bus ride from Sibu... (not even genting's roller-coaster can beat tat bumpy ride) when we reach, we had to walk another 1 to 2 km of stony path to the longhouse...

Look how long the house is!!! Endless...

Some of the aunties who could not stand the heat...


The special gateway tat the ppl from the longhouse build to welcome us... the coconut leaves are such beautiful sight...

All waiting for Rev Tiong to cut the ribbon for the opening ceremony... the ppl there are so cute, they insisted on singing a lagu sembahyang which we had no idea wat to sing so in the end we sang "We wish you a merry Christmas"

Traditional iban costume... (esp to all west malaysians, don think u guys see this b4) hehe

View from inside the gate...

The longhouse folks are so helpful to put on fans for us...

Dora n Andrea!!!

Jonathan n Alan

The decos...

The one end of the longhouse where we had our Christmas service...

Look at the effort they put to decorate the whole corridor... imagine how much colour paper they had to prepare to decorate such LONG corridor...

Call to worship... but i don understand a thing...

For those anak bandar... guess u never see this b4!!! ha ha

2 of the naughtiest kids i ever met in my entire life...


Blessed Christmas everyone!!!
