Buhay Dulang@沙巴(Sabah) ,馬來西亞Malaysia

.沙巴(馬來語:Sabah),簡稱沙,是馬來西亞的十三州之一,位於婆羅洲島北部。沙巴是全國第二大區域,僅次於位於其西南方的砂拉越,與南方的印度尼西亞的東加里曼丹省接壤。

A Bajau woman emerged her head from behind a blue curtain out of curiousity.

The Bajau or Bajaw, also spelled Bajao, Badjau, Badjaw, or Badjao, are an indigenous ethnic group of Maritime Southeast Asia. Bajau continue to live a seaborne lifestyle, making use of small wooden sailing vessels (known as perahu) for voyages through the seas of austronesia.

 

Due to escalated conflicts in their native Sulu Archipelago, and discrimination in the Philippines with regards to education and employment, most of the Bajau have migrated to neighboring Malaysia over the course of 50 years. Currently they are the second largest ethnic group in the state of Sabah, making up 13.4% of the total population. Groups of Bajau have also migrated to Sulawesi and Kalimantan in Indonesia, although figures of their exact population are unknown.

Bajau have sometimes been referred to as the Sea Gypsies, although the term has been used to encompass a number of non-related ethnic groups with similar traditional lifestyles, such as the Moken of the Burmese-Thai Mergui Archipelago and the Orang Laut of southeastern Sumatra and the Riau Islands of Indonesia. The modern outward spread of the Bajau from older inhabited areas seems to have been associated with the development of sea trade in sea cucumber (trepang).

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  

Maiga Island

Semporna Sabah

Les Bajau, ou Bajo, sont un groupe ethnique de Brunei, d'Indonésie, de Malaisie Orientale et des Philippines qui font partie des populations qu'on appelle « nomades de la mer » (« Sea Gypsies » dans la littérature de langue anglaise), comme les Moken de Birmanie et de Thaïlande, des Orang Laut de Riau et des Urak Lawoi' de Thaïlande.

 

Les Bajau sont le deuxième groupe le plus important en nombre dans l'État malaisien de Sabah, constitutant plus de 13 % de la population.

 

Les Bajau d'Indonésie vivent principalement sur les petites îles et les côtes de l'île de Sulawesi. On pense que l'expansion des Bajau est liée à la pêche et au commerce de l'holothurie (trepang en malais).

The Mari Mari Village on the Island of Borneo in Sabah, Malaysia preserves the culture of 5 different ethnic tribes in one village. They are the rice farmer Kadazan-Dusun, the longhouse resident Rungus, the hunters and fisherman Lundayeh, the cowboy and sea gypsey Bajau, and the famously feared headhunting tribe Murut. It is an amazing place to visit if you are ever in Borneo!

A random photo from Sibuan island, Sabah :P

A scene from the "floating village" of Pulau Gaya (Gaya Island). Sources on the internet also call the community here as the Bajau (indegenous group) gypsies. A mix of Bajau, Filipino and Indonesian communities is probably more accurate.

 

For long an eyesore (and issue of public, environmental and political interests), this water village has been shrinking over the years. Many of these houses have been dismantled, while a few are being rebuilt. Mass relocation is certainly a daunting task. And just nearby, on the same island, are two excellent 5 star resorts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pulau Gaya is the largest of five islands that are collectively known as the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (est 1974), and it is about 3 km from the mainland. The other islands are Manukan, Sapi, Suluk and Mamutik. Non of the other islands have these villages.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pulau Gaya is also known to have the most type of dipterocarp trees that can be found in Sabah's rainforest. Wikipedia info on Dipterocarpaceae.

Mabul is a small island off the south-eastern coast of Sabah in Malaysia. The island has been a fishing village since 1970s. Then in 1990s, it first became popular to divers due to its proximity to Sipadan island.

Located 15 km from Sipadan, this 20-hectare piece of land surfaces 2–3 meters above sea level, consists mostly flat grounds and aerial view is oval-shaped. Surrounding it are sandy beaches, perched on the northwest corner of a larger two square kilometer reef.

Mabul island is administered by Semporna, Tawau district.

 

There are 2 main villages on the island i.e. "Kampung Mabul" and "Kampung Musu". From 1999 census, it was recorded that there are approximately 2000 villagers living in Mabul, half of them children below 14 years old. The majority are immigrants from relatively nearby clusters of islands of the southern Philippines. They are mainly Bajau Laut and Suluk Muslims who live a nomadic lifestyle.

Basic amenities include a mosque, schools, community and fishermen hall. The main transportation mode from one point to another is by boat.

Mainly fishermen, the village source of income depends on sea products such as squids and fish. Traditional fishing methods are called "Payau" and "Sangkaliya". Mabul fishermen prefers catches close to the Malaysia-Philippines borders, perhaps due to its abundance. An average fishing trip will take 3–5 days out in the sea. When the men return, their catches are being sold in the mainland, Semporna.

It was said that Mabul was owned by a man from Menampilik island. Back in 1970s, he and the villagers then used to plant coconuts on the island, apart from fishing. Later in 1992, Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART) purchased a part of land on the east of Mabul intended for tourism.

This is the small part of another small Island i visited while i was in Semporna (refer to my previous post to know which part of Borneo it is) its called Maiga Island. We stay there for one night in one of the local house in Maiga, it has a very basic accommodation, no proper toilet, no clean water and the only electricity is from the gen set, it feel like living like those people in the stilt house i think :) The stilt houses in this pictures are owned by the Sea Gypsies, i put pictures of them in the comment box but i will post more about them later on. Sea Gypsies is an indigenous ethnic group of Maritime Southeast Asia.

敦沙卡蘭海洋公園(Taman Marin Tun Sakaran)@Bohey Dulang Island Tun Sakaran Marine Park (TSMP) are situated at the entrance to Darvel Bay, off the East coast of Sabah near the town of Semporna, it took about 45 minutes by speed boat from the jetty of this small town. Named after then the Head of State of Sabah, Tun Sakaran Dandai, it was gazetted in July 2004 as Sabah’s seventh park. The Park is the largest Marine Park and covering 340 sq kilometers of sea and corals reef and 10 sq kilometers of land.

 

Comprising 8 islands, their surrounding reefs, and sea. Its main objective is to protect their environment and to promote sustainable use of natural resources. Geologically, the islands are formed from Quaternary pyroclastic material, which was ejected during explosive volcanic activity. Pulau Bodgaya, Boheydulang, Tetagan, Selakan, Sebangkat, Maiga, Sibuan and Mantabuan.

This is one of my favourite places from our Indonesia trip - a super long jetty that connects a Bajau village, which sits among rocks in the sea, with another small village on one of the many islands of the Togeans.

沙巴享有風下之地(Land Below The Wind)或是風下之鄉之美譽,原因是沙巴的位置在飽受颱風肆虐的菲律賓之南,但颱風不會經過這裡。沙巴首府為亞庇,前名為Jesselton。其他主要城鎮有山打根、斗湖、根地咬、保佛、古達、仙本那、拿篤、斗亞蘭、吧巴、實必丹、丹南、蘭腦、吉打毛律、萬勞等。納閩在1984年由哈里士領導的人民黨組成的沙巴政府交給了聯邦政府,現為聯邦直轄區,也是大馬的唯一的岸外金融中心。

瀕臨消失的海上吉卜賽人- 海巴夭族(Sea Bajau)@ 沙巴(Sabah) ,馬來西亞Malaysia 是東南亞的一個民族。生活在菲律賓、馬來西亞和印度尼西亞之間海域,多數人潛海捕魚為生,常被稱為「海上吉普賽人」,被認為是最後一支海洋游牧民族。

 

巴夭族是仙本那(Semporna)主要族群,就像華人一樣擁有許多籍貫,巴夭族分為海巴夭族(Bajau Laut) 和陸巴夭族(Bajau Darat)。陸巴夭族早在200年前已登陸沙巴。許多陸巴夭族人已經安定並定居下來,過著耕種稻米與養牛的生活。由於精通騎馬術,使到哥打毛律鎮裡的陸巴夭族人被冠以一個名為“東方牛仔”的美譽。巴夭族人普遍上都是回教徒,並奉行回教的傳統習俗與教義。

 

是沙巴的第二大原住民,素有「水上吉普賽」之稱,通常要前往水上村都是順便搭船遊覽斗亞蘭(Tuaran)附近的紅樹林,從亞庇前往大約要30分鐘車程。這一帶大約有四千多戶人家,他們知足常樂,雖然沒有富裕的居住環境,但能夠享受悠閒便是最大的幸福。

 

當你乘船行經這些用木材建造、狭長的水上房屋時,還有天真可愛的小朋友會向你招手,偶爾還會看到搖著扁舟的巴夭族人,他們正在灑網捕魚,一派的原始風情。遊客可以親自體驗巴夭族的捕魚方式,船夫會在船上放置幾個捕紅蟳的鐵網子,讓大家也試試水上漁家的日常生活作息。
