Huge logs? Chickens? Pigs? Trees for landscaping? Oil palm seeds?
But in Limbang along the Batu Danau/Brunei Road this is what you may see. I managed to shoot a kerbau (water buffalo) on the move...all at his rear unfortunately!!
The Bisayas are indigenous people who populate the lower Limbang River Valley and the majority of them live in the Batu Danau area. Numbering around 6000 in Sarawak alone they are agriculturalists who maintain good padi fields mixed with fruit trees.
The Bisaya's most staple food is rice but they are also very famous for sago which they make into linut a very popular local as well as tourist attraction food. Sago trees are found dotted along the lower Limbang river and they are the pride of the Bisayas farmers.
More than half of the Bisayas are now highly educated and have been occupying high government positions including one State Assembly Man. Most of the Bisayas are related to Bruneians and Sabahans many of whom are of Bisaya stock. Some can claim their lineage up to the Visayan Islands in the Philippines.
They claim fame in other activities too : they are most well known for buffalo races!
Perhaps unknown to many there is an important occupation amongst them : the buffalo
Thus the buffaolo
The buffalo is on his way for a very important purpose. The buffalo
This is a nostalgic scene for many Limbang folks.
So when driving along the Batu Danau Road be watchful. Drive carefully. You may have to wait for a buffalo to finally cross the road or you may have to slow down and drive behind a buffalo which is having his first but last ride in his life on top of a pickup.
But don't forget to take some shots if you have your camera with you ehhh.... if you not driving!!
