Melanau - The People

When i went study outside Sarawak, my friends from other states (Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah) will says that mostly Melanau people looks like Chinese. I will say not all looks like Chinese. It maybe because they refer it to me. If they refer it to me, i am not purely Melanau. So, i am not a good example of how purely Melanau looks like. How to describe us? Hmm.. Again, i am not good in describing but maybe you guys can have a look at this blog posts that i found. The blogger is from Mukah and this posts is about Melanau traditional wedding at Mukah. Quite interesting to read and she got a beauitiful collections of photos.

A lots of mix-marriage is happen now so i am not sure what will the next generations of Melanau will looks like. As for myself, part of my blood is Chinese and my sisters and brothers already married to other races as well. My nephew is more into Chinese blood because my brother married to Chinese lady. So...what left for Melanau blood in my family. I am not sure too..That's why i am gathering informations about Melanau here and i am sure i will find a lot more after this.

Mun sabei, ako debei rapa bak peduli angai gak adat a liko atau mana-mana pasal a liko. Tapi ajau ih ko pilak idak angai ji wak ngak neliluk. Apatah agei bila a lakei-lakei wak memigang adat gak kapong ngak matai min. Lian ih, gak kapong ko mun lian a kawin kurang angai ji agei wak menak surong berian. Adet debei rapa nebak ji agei. Luin suka aluk kawin cara aliko putik. Kawin gak restorenlah wak paling senang. Ienlah tan wak menak ko luk pinyi idak aluk pasal ji gaya udip a liko wak saji atang. Ako keman umit angai debei nelajer lo mak ko pasal adet a liko.
