Mundul Buung [Kadayan Universe]

Kadayan Universe Community Hall: Kedai Kopi General Discussion

TOPIC: Mundul Buung

I would say Mr Amde Sidek had done indepth research on all the topics he had written and posted to this site for others to consume and digest. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to him for all his efforts to revive and document the Kadayan cultures, sporting activities and many others.

I was attracted to his latest posting entitled Mundul Buung. This pastime or you may call it as part of the economic activity amongst the Kadayans, is dearly close to my heart. My personal experience in Mundul Taipas was indeed a beautiful one. I used to follow the Kadayan elders to catch buung taipas and as cruel as it was described by Mr Amde Sidek but the birds actually are very safe and quite comfortable after the feathers are massaged by coconut oil. It only takes one or two hours before the birds could fly normally again after they are being caught.

If my memory served me right, the glue like substance was not derived from gatah taap BUT from another tree known as timbaan amongst the Kadayan community. Timbaani] is a tree slightly different from taap, but may be scientifically it comes from the same family. The leaves are longer and wider and the fruits are not edible unlike taap.

Correct me if I'm wrong. My sincere congratulation to Mr Amde Sidek for his relentless effort to document Kadayan cultures at large.

The funds were originally gotten from my late Father's proceeds. My late father was able to safe guard the fund with a very good diplomatic contact from my Country to Thailand which make us to come here to plan our life.

Normally they pretend to be unfortunate rich and famous, begging for help to transfer their money and will pay you for the service. I found this email in my Outlook Express Inbox folder.

Back Again ...

Written by arimi sidek

It has been quite some time since the last time I wrote something on this site. But I wish to confess, managing a site is not an easy sometime, especially if you not doing it full time. It requires lots of attention, focus, trial an error and guts. Thats how I felt whenever the server down, for example. The worst experience was in the last month. It was terrible as the whole kadayan server went down and offline for about a week from 20 - 27 Feb. And again down for three days till today.

Some time I wish I could have know more about the problems.

To some extend, I really don't know how to deal with it, nor that I have any knowledge of what went wrong with the server. What I did was to simply sit in front of my PC, doing continuous web searching to see if somebody ever encounter the same problem and therefore, I will be lucky enough to imitate their solution.

During the bad time like this, I really wish that I can learn more to become an efficient web master
