SO this year I can’t go back to Sarawak to visit my in-laws for Gawai again because I caught the flu over the weekend (and lost my voice) and am still recovering. Not exactly in shape for festivities, so I am properly bummed out. I haven’t gone back to my wife’s longhouse since 2019. If there’s one thing about Gawai I tell those who have yet to experience it, it is this: whatever you learnt in school is barely the tip of the iceberg of the real party that goes on.
