henever my friendscome back from aholiday, they’realways proud to show off theircheap buys and designerknock-offs (particularly popularin this region, in case youhaven’t noticed). Sometimes, it’seasy for us to feel intimidated atthe sight of designer boutiquesand gourmet food but Ipersonally believe we all deserve atreat sometimes, especially whenyou’re on holiday! Although Sabah isknown for its rustic charms and as a‘back to nature’ destination, there’s aseldom-explored luxurious side to theLand Below the Wind. In this issue,we unravel the luxe life Sabah has tooffer, from champagne dinners tofull-body pampering sessions.September is another busy monthfor Sabah as we play host to amyriad of MICE events (check out theHighlights & Happenings section) andthe colourful International FolkloreFestival. Cultural troupes from aroundthe world flock here dressed in theirtraditional best to showcase theirculture through song and dance.Don’t miss performances fromPoland, China, India, Thailand andMalaysia to name a few. Alsofeatured this month is BangkadTolumis (p.9). Visitors can rent fulltraditional costumes and have theirphotos taken at the KadanzandusunCultural Association (KDCA) grounds.Another great cultural experience toremember your holiday by!September is also the month ofRamadhan for our Muslim friends – atime of fasting and abstinence as theyprepare for Hari Raya Aidilfitri comeOctober. Join the Muslim communityas they break fast at sun down; agreat opportunity to sample deliciouslocal fare from colourful cakes tomouthwatering fried and grilleddelights.
