 ANNUAL MAJOR EVENT AT SCV

1)WORLD HARVEST FESTIVAL(FORMERLY KNOWN GAWAI TOURISM NIGHT)
That is the origin of Gawai from a mystical point of view. But on a more down-to-earth way of seeing it, Gawai festival is the celebration of the end of harvesting season and the start of a new farming season

As another highlight of the night, an ethnic beauty pageant (Miss Fair & Lovely)will also be held as a sign of recognition to beautiful and intellectual women.This ethnic beauty pagent looking for a maiden who possess grace, pose and charm, articulate with a good knowledge of Sarawak's beautiful culture and heritage. She must be, in short, a woman of substance.


2)RAINFOREST WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL
HOME OF THE RAINFOREST WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL
the Rainforest World Music Festival is a unique festival that brings together on the same stage renowned world musicians from all continents and indigenous musicians from the interiors of the mythical island of Borneo.
THE ATTRACTIONS

Many Borneo natives live in longhouses, in effect, a row of dwellings and a village street under one roof!!

1)IBAN LONGHOUSE
The Iban race, once known as “Sea Dayaks”, built their longhouses to last 15 to 20 years, or, until the farm land in the surrounding area was exhausted.








 A traditional longhouse is built of axe-hewn timber, tied with creeper fibre, roofed with leaf thatch.

open verandah face to face with a scene of community and domestic activity.


 Notched log that serves as a staircase.normally a log  from Belian(Borneo Ironwood)

Belian or its popular name, Borneo Ironwood, is the most famous and well-known durable hardwood timber tree of Borneo.To date, little genetic information is available on these valuable timber species, and  the belian populations in Sarawak is rapidly declining .source..



Joyous atmosphere of the Iban Longhouse - drums and gongs, Pua weaving, Kuih Jala, Tuak (rice wine), hanging skulls carrying tales of days gone by.



2)ORANG ULU LONGHOUSE
The Kayan, the Kenyah, the Kelabit, the Lun Bawang and the other minor tribes...these are the Orang Ulu, gentle and graceful people - as reflected in their songs, music and dances.

Sit on the verandah of the Orang Ulu Longhouse nest with the friendly craft-ladies as they do their intricate beadwork whilst in the background, floats the melodiously haunting tune of the sape, their stringed musical instrument
Other sights of interest are the art of body tattooing, Parang Ilang, their fighting sword, Klirieng, their burial pole (totem pole).



3)BIDAYUH LONGHOUSE




Bamboo carvings, plumbing, musical instruments, bridges, flooring, walls...welcome to the Bidayuh Longhouse!
the Barok - the round head-house.
Baruk can be made into a model for a modern cool community hall. The Baruk structure capitalised on air convection as the principle for keeping the building cool. The other aspect is that it provide an atmosphere of equality in term of status when come to the seating arrangment. In the old days, this is where the Bidayuh keep their enemies skulls.


4)MELANAU TALL HOUSE

As a means of protecting themselves, the Melanaus built massive houses forty feet above the ground.


Be entertained by tall tales of spirits and demons at the Melanau Tall House.

5)PENAN HUT
The shy nomadic people of the jungle, the Penans, live in the dense virgin jungles of Central Borneo, among some of the State's most valuable timber resources.
Penan shelters are quickly constructed to last for a few weeks or months.
Watch blowpipe making or try blowpipe shooting with the Penans, the last of the hunters and gatherers - the forest nomads.


6)CHINESE FARM HOUSE
The first Chinese settlers to Sarawak, the Hakka clan, brought with them Cha Kiak, the traditional Chinese wooden clogs as on display at the Chinese farm house.

Chinese farmers in Sarawak are likely to be of Hakka or Foochow descent. These hardy and frugal people migrated to Sarawak in the early 1900s


One of the focal points of the main room is the household shrine. A print or statuette of the god revered by the family is displayed here, surrounded by joss sticks, candles, little cups of tea and other seasonal offerings. The doorpost is also divinely protected by the application of strips of red paper, inscribed with protection verses.

7)MALAY HOUSE


The house of an urban Malay family is a gracious structure, well adapted to the tropical climate. Like all local houses, it is built of wood.
