Tudung Dulang

image

How beautiful this creation from dried dyed pandan leaves

It’s not a hat; it’s a dish cover. So colorful that it makes a pretty wall ornament as covering food to protect from flies isn’t a primary concern any longer. In the present times, screened houses render the usage of tudung dulang as somewhat obsolete.

The making of tudung dulang and other traditional crafts are encouraged (even if used as wall ornaments and bought as souvenirs) just so the tradition won’t disappear and thereby preserving the Bruneian Malay culture.

Several fish or crab traps are left to dry by the wooden bridges of the water village. How convenient that one can catch food at one’s doorstep.
