When she said she wanted Sabah designs on it. I immediately thought of the Sompoton (a local wind instrument made out of a gourd).
Then of course Mt. Kinabalu popped into my head. Right after that was the Rafflesia.
The Siung (traditional headdress of the kadazan women) and the Gong came after that.
But what Sabahan get together would be complete without the Sosopon!
By the time, we've finished exchanging *rather fast* emails. I had my ideas down pat already.
Of course there are heaps more ideas coming from Sabah. (Such as Paddy fields, Bambangan (pickled mango-like fruit), Proboscis Monkeys and Orang Utans.) but I stuck with these and I hope you like them!
