i was really thirsty
Sarawak Cultural Village isn't so bad, despite its attempt at touristy perfectness. i could work here, coz all i have to do is sit around and wait for tourist to ask me questions about this and that. it's easy work, if somewhat dull. but at least i get to wear costumes!

anyway, my friend (Ally) was honeymooning in Kuching with her new husband, so not knowing where else to bring her to, my bro and i brought her to Kampung Budaya, like any good sarawakian when ppl from 'overseas' come to visit. heheheh.

it was terribly hot, and we were a bit dehydrated, but no one passed out. and at the end of the tour we caught the daily show at 4pm, and suddenly errything was worth it. yay!

in hindsight, i didn't take a lot of pictures to make this a good album.

Rainforest World Music Festival 05, y'all.
