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).

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.

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!

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).

Maiga@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。

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。

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.

Shoot during my recent visit to Sabah.

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.

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。

 

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.

市立清真寺@沙巴州仙本那鎮上的清真寺就建在路邊,與土耳其的清真寺不僅建築形式不同,就連宣禮塔的模樣、寺體的色調也都完全不一樣。與土耳其多采用沙岩色的莊重相比,這裡湖藍的寺牆、明黃色的穹頂在夕陽的映照下則顯得更加艷麗奪目。

仙本那(Semporna)是馬來西亞沙巴斗湖省的一縣,是馬來西亞沙巴東海岸的一座小漁村,在巴夭語和馬來 語中Semporna字面意思為‘完美的’ 。城鎮被海水包圍著,仙本那和它的附屬海島就像是一個現實世界中的夢境之島。純淨的白色沙灘、椰子樹和平靜美麗的如綠松石般的Sulawesi 海的海水輕輕拂過五顏六色的礁石,它集中了海島應有的一切特質︰藍天白雲、椰林樹影和明媚陽光,唯一與其它海島有別的是︰這裡把每一點都發揮到了極致── 海水總是清澈純淨,海裡總有如織的魚兒穿梭著,天空總有飛鳥盤旋,孩童總是那麼地充滿著純真。踏上這片土地才能體驗到那份難以形容的純淨的、原始的美感。在這片藍色的天堂生活著一群巴夭民,“巴夭”(Bajau)在印尼語裡是“海上之民”的意思。這個古老的海洋游牧民族常被稱為“海上的吉普賽人”。巴夭族人 是自由潛泳的高手,能潛到30米甚至更深的海域捕深海魚,尋找珍珠以及海參。海參不僅是巴夭族的美食,也是過去幾個世紀以來巴夭族向外界兜售的珍品。潛水 時,他們都會佩戴鑲著玻璃鏡片手工雕刻的木質護目鏡,手持利用船上廢舊材料改製的漁叉。由於沒有國籍身分,巴夭人只能被迫長期以海為家,凡是登陸任何島嶼 都屬違法行為。因此從某種意義上可以說,他們才是真正的海洋之子。

【齋月(Ramadan)】

齋月是伊芳斯蘭教歷九月。系阿拉伯語“萊麥丹”(Ramadan)的意譯。因教義規定穆斯林在該月履行五大 天命之一的齋戒功課,故名萊麥丹月中開始降示《古蘭經》,指導世人,昭示明証,以便遵循正道,分別真偽,故在此月中,你們當齋戒。”據載,齋月系穆罕默德 由麥加遷徙到麥地那的第二年作為履行齋戒功課的月份。聖訓中也有“你們要見新月而封齋,見新月而開齋”的話。因此萊麥丹月齋戒最多是30天伊芳斯蘭教法規 定︰全體穆斯林,除病人、孕婦、喂奶的婦女、幼兒以及在日出前踏上旅途的人之外,均應全月齋戒。封齋從黎明至日落,戒飲食,戒房事,戒絕丑行和穢語,並認 為其意義除完成宗教義務外,還在於陶冶性格,克製私欲,體會窮人飢餓之苦,萌發惻隱之心,以資濟貧行善。

【齋月過程】

齋月即 指穆斯林在日出後到日落前齋戒(fasting)。齋戒是伊芳斯蘭教念(shahada:affirmation)、拜(salat:prayer)、課 (zakat:almsgiving)、齋(siyam:fasting)、朝(hajj:pilgrimage)五項基本功課之一,是穆斯林的一種修煉 心性的宗教活動穆斯林的齋戒源於早期的基督教(Christianity)和猶太教(Judaism)信徒的一種儀式。當年居住在麥加的先知穆罕默德 (Muhammad)為了加強早期的追隨者對真主安拉(Allah)的信心,將齋戒轉化為伊芳斯蘭教的儀式,後來演變成齋月。齋戒為穆斯林必須遵行的儀式之 一,為期一個月,除病人、老年人、年幼者及工作在外者之外,一律要遵行“齋月”禁食齋月意義在穆斯林看來,齋月是一年中最吉祥、最高貴的月份。伊芳斯蘭教認 為該月是頒降《古蘭經》(the Holy Quran)經文之月。

伊芳斯蘭教認為,齋戒能淨化人的心靈,使人情操高尚,心地善良,還能使富 人體驗窮人忍飢挨餓的滋味根據伊芳斯蘭教教義,齋月期間,所有穆斯林從每天的日出到日落期間禁止一切飲食、吸煙和房事等活动。通常,人們在天曉前吃“封齋 飯”(suhoor),在日落時以食物或飲料開齋,即“開齋小吃”(iftar)齋月期間,穆斯林會到清真寺(Mosque)作禱告,學習《古蘭經》。除 平日誦讀的禱文外,他們還會在夜晚誦讀一本特殊的禱文,該禱文比一般的禱文長2至3倍,被稱為“他那威”(Taraweeh prayer/Night Prayer)

On the east coast of Sabah ( former British North Borneo ) some Sea Bajau folks stay in huts built on stilts on the sea and they live by fishing and gathering edibles from the sea-bed . Life can be tough at times but they face challenges and adversities with resilience and pride .
