~ A seller in the process of negotiation with her potential buyer of "tikar Sarawak" - although it is made by Indonesian the design & concept is of native Sarawak, made from bamboo, rotan and selected "kulit kayu". The same item can be sold in Kuching (about 90 minutes drive) at twice the price it is being sold in Kg Serikin.
It is our conscious decision not to use carpets in our small homeys (well, just a small intermediate terrace & a small condo) due to "complications it may bring to our kids. So, tikar Sarawak has always been there in our homeys....no carpets nor rugs! Best woo tidur atas tikar nih....
~ "Kayu manis" or better known as cinnamons (for the modern Malays lah!) neatly tied up and ready for sale at the infamous Kg Serikin, Sarawak.
~ "Tengkolok Jawa" - traditional Javanese headgear up for grabs at Kg Serikin, Sarawak. Since the place is nearer to Indonesia (Kalimantan), the influence of Indonesian culture is more observable than Malaysian culture on the items for sale.
...however, head gears of distant cultures also can be found here...tak caya, tgk ini topi Jerman (distant culture apaaa!)
....to be continued!
