Jambatan Tamparuli


Jambatan Tamparuli is the famous landmark in Tamparuli. It is a long hanging bridge, in malay we called it jambatan gantung. The hanging bridge is immortalized in the Kadazandusun song called Jambatan Tamparuli, which composed and sung by Justin Lusah in the mid of 1970's.

Sungai Tamparuli

If you happen to visit Sabah, I mean Kota Kinabalu area...don't forget to try walk on this famous landmark of Tamparuli. However, if you are the 'gayat' type (like me) I suggest do not even try it. You will end up froze in the middle with a pale face and tears in your eyes...hahahahaha. Okay, just kidding!

Alright, here is the lyric of the famous song. For video music, look for it at You Tube. As I mentioned earlier, the song was originally by Justin Lusah but they are several local artists sing the song in their own version. Enjoy :)

  
Jambatan Tamparuli by Justin Lusah

Pak pak kangku doh
Sumunsui doh jambatan
Jambatan doh Tamparuli
Bakasut tinggi oku

Sumunsui doh jambatan
Jambatan doh Tamparuli
Pak pak kangku doh
Bakasut tinggi oku

Silaka no di kasutku
Naratu ilo jambatan
Tinggal poh doh sutakin
Nowit ku guminuli

Ontok di hari tiga
Tamu lo Tamparuli
Mingusuk poh hilo kadai
Mogihum do kasut tinggi



* gayat = afraid of heights

PS : Last week, we have this Kundasang trip with someone. With whom? Stay tuned to find out...
