This  is my Journey  with Sarawak Heritage (PWSKL) during  Inaugural Borneo Culture Tour Tokyo 2012(7-12 June 2012) with the winner for  the Dance Competition @Borneo Hornbill Festival KL 2011... Sanggar Budaya Miri (LINK)

ABOUT BORNEO CULTURE TOUR(LINK)
"Borneo Culture Tour by Persatuan Warisan Sarawak KL & Selangor (LINK)is a continuation of the recently concluded Borneo Hornbill Festival during the previous year. The first Borneo Culture Tour 2012 is the progression from Hornbill Festival 2011 in which winners of the Keling and Kumang pageant and also the Ethnic Dance Competition Finals will be ushered to their winning destinations.

Apart from a sightseeing tour, the participants would also be performing cultural dances at selected locations. This is made possible through negotiations and mutual agreements with the respective countries' government agencies and corporate organizations.

Persatuan Warisan Sarawak regards the winners as deserving ambassadors of Sarawak, fit and equipped to promote the enduring legacy of colorful cultures, unique traditions and signature Sarawak unity."
