Kota Belud's Big Tamu(Sunday open market)

On our way back to Kota Kinabalu, we stopped at Kota Belud to witness it's annual Tamu Besar (Big Tamu). This tamu showcases Kota Belud's rich cultures through the sales of souvenirs, cattle, traditional items and in the form of beauty pageant, cultural shows and dances.

Because of the massive traffic jam, we had to park far and walked. Mind you this event alone can attract thousands of visitors at a time. We didn't have much time to spare there so I just randomly shot anything that's interesting to my eyes.

The 'cowboy town' of Sabah.

There was a beauty pageant going on and I can only shoot from far because of the big crowd.

Traditional delicacies being shown, to the delight of my hungry tummy.


Home-made swords and samurais.

Pazrul and Mizan tried their skills on the local music instrument - Sompoton.
