Pua Give-Away

1st - Pua Purse Give-Away

YEAY! My very own very Give-Away, am SOOOO SUPER EXCITED!

Been wanting to do this for ages but couldn't find enough excuse, mainly because - the gift MUST be UNIQUE, AUTHENTHIC and SYMBOLIC to Malaysia culture and heritage. Unless ofcos I bought it during one of my oversee's trip, well; that's another story all together.

I had my mind set on something of Pua design and Sarawak is very famous for this motive/print and their beaded handiwork. This motive and handiwork is from Iban tribe which is a branch of the Dayak peoples of Borneo, they are also known as Sea Dayaks during the British colonial era. The Ibans were renowned for practising headhunting and tribal/territorial expansion. But no worries guys, long gone are the days of headhunting and piracy and the are now pretty much in tech savvy (those living in the cities of cause). The only headhunting now will be on online games/PSP, hahahhaaa.....

2nd - Bracelet Give-Away

Originally I wanted to have 1 give-away entry for each city I’ve visited but... Neh… I thought let’s just do 1 entry with 2 gifts instead. Hence the 2nd gift is from Kota Kinabalu (or KK) in Sabah. KK is basically popular for its cultured pearls but I don’t know how to buy a good one so I thought I just get an accessories from the famous Filipino Market.

Sabah is known for Mount Kinabalu (ranked 5th on the highest point in South East Asia) for it’s gigantic Rafflesia plants plus the orangutan as well as it's paradise diving spot/island - Sipadan Island. Do check out my entry HERE for Sipadan and Mabul Island visit. Oh! You can also climb Mountain Torq Via Ferrata.

2. Everyone

15 November 2010
~ Winners will be announced few days after the closing date ~

My plan is to do a give-away purchased at the country I visited (wherever in the world I go to). I thought that would be more fun & interesting

PS : Am doing a short business trip next week to Singapore, hemm.... what can I get from the island of Merlion?

The purse and the bracelet do look great but the background, specially in the second shot is amazingly beautiful. It really favors the giveaways a lot.

Kota Kinabalu we knew it as Sabah, Hong Kong and Macau have direct flight to there! I have been Sabah one time in last X'mas!
I didn't have time to visit the Filipino Handicraft Market...
As I know Borneo is very big, Sabah is one a small part of there, I also visited the forest and marshland of Borneo!
The logo of Borneo is a monkey, I still have some magnetic souvenirs!
