Balai Ringin - Raided!

How was your Gawai? I made a roadtrip to Balai Ringin over the weekend for an Iban wedding. An hour drive from Serian town along the Pan-Borneo Highway. While some claim Balai Ringin is under Simunjan territory as well.

 What does the kampung in almost every household had that the city doesn't have?

Just woods & mountain water as utilities.

Lemang - glutinous rice cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick.

This cooking method using bamboo stick is popular not only in the Iban Dayak tribe but also adapted by the other tribes of Borneo island.

The Changs- made of glutinous rice usually stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in reed leaves

But this Chang, wasnt fill with any fillings. It had a slight bitter taste to it.[yes, it is yellow in colour]

The Penanang aka kuih Sarang Semut is my all time favorite!

Photobucket

The kuih bunga is another all time favourite! *nyummm!*

Photobucket

Both best paired with hot steaming black coffee/tea or if there is an occasion, then tuak is served room temperature ;)


The Tuak - an alcoholic beverage made of fermented rice, yeast and sugar
