We called the rain?!
Thursday, February 23, 2012
On 22 October 2011 ...

We were told to set up a mock exhibition corner to display the cultural items we are bringing to SSEAYP exhibition session.

We set up the table within 30 minutes and awaited judgment to be given by our seniors. The long rectangular tables were decorated with array of items. We were somewhat satisfied with the selected items. In fact, we were so afraid that the items we had were not enough to introduce our culture to other participants. Because of this, I introduced a few local aborigine items since I happened to know the director of a NGO that helps to sell indigenous crafts. Items that I bought were 3 music instruments, 300 handwoven bookmarks and 3 IQ games.

I'm not entirely sure if my contingent mates were thrill to see the indigenous crafts, but I were especially the music instruments. I somewhat have a knack in collecting music instruments. One of the music instruments that caught the attention of my members is the rainmaker. It is made off shells. They love playing it.

My seniors can't stop playing with it during the exhibition corner. And do you know what happen? Yes, it's predictable. It rain. HEAVILY. After 10 minutes of playing.

Since then, we dare not play it anymore... So how does this rainmaker look like?

Spinoff: It could be a total coincidence that it rained, but we knew it was bright and sunny the 10 minutes before my senior played it vigorously. I thought it was convenient to call for rain when I'm on the ship.

This instrument is called Kiromboi made by the Bidayuh. It comes with a long stick (a longer toothpick version; it's not in the picture) , and you just push the stick in between of the shells. It sounds exactly like a frog croaking. Amazing tool.
