Its May again!

And everyone is in the festive season..
the "Kaamatan" has come again.

"Kaamatan" is also known as the "harvest festival", where all sabahans
Regardless of Race, Ethnicity or Religion unite as one to Celebrate this long-awaited Fest!

This Festival is Celebrated in all areas of the state..where District level celebration is held first before the State-Level is celebrated.

It is a two-day holiday for all sabahans..and the date is fixed 30-31st May annually!

Many Activities are held, including the exhibitions, dances, singing competition, and the Much awaited Beauty Pageant or "Unduk Ngadau"..
