Borneo Cultural Festival 2008 - It Leapt Off To A Grand Start

A much-awaited extravaganza finally has its curtain drawn! With BCF 2008 gonged to start, Sibu is in straight 9 days of non-stop vibrant cultural shows to take you into a world of colours and beauty, uniquely Sarawak.

To put it in a nutshell, BCF is simply a showcase of the beauty of our ethnic diversity. As such, it is surely going to fascinate you!

I popped in with Yian at about 9.30pm to see for ourselves the grand settings of the cultural event. It is not too much to call it a pride of Sibu since we do not have other events of this scale to offer to our dear tourists.

The moment we set our feet on the ground of BCF, we were instantly engulfed by the vibrancy of it. The first bustling sight that came to us was the ethnic foods stalls. On offer were Dayak and Malay specialties to entice visitors. Foods are never missed out in any tourist attractions. With intelligent promotions, our foods have the potential to draw in tourists from far and near!

The picture shows barbecued chicken wings and skewered bishop's noses! You must try out to experience the authentic taste of Dayak foods.

Some young girls in traditional costume to attend to visitors. Mind you, they are surprisingly well groomed with friendly disposition.
This live cooking station serves the Malay version of Hamburger! Sample it to appreciate their culinary skills.
