    The traditional tattoos indicates men to be brave and women to beautify.
    The more skulls around in the kampong house means that there are great warriors.


  10. Group 2:
    At the Sarawak museum, we learnt the history of Sarawak, such as how Sarawak got its name and it was once famous for Ilmenite mining. We get to explore the inside of the longhouse. We were particularly interested in the skulls hanging from the ceiling at the living area. According to the guide, the warriors from the tribe killed their enemies and washed their skulls at the river. They then hanged the skulls from the ceiling and smoked them. We also saw the beautiful murals on the wall.
    At the Cat museum, we bought souvenirs. We took a few pictures with the artefacts.
    During the Heritage walk, the guide explained to us that the houses were made of iron at the core and covered by wood. The windows were like doors so to have better ventilation. We passed by the Astana (palace) which is situated beside the paliament house along the Sarawak River. Charles Brook built the Astana as a wedding gift to his wife.
