Last month, my sister and I went to a book fair in Suria Sabah shopping complex. Our expectation for this book fair was very high, we thought there will be thousands of books ready to be picked by the book lovers...anyway, that was in our dreams only. I am sure whoever went to that book fair know what I mean (*_*)
The only book that caught my attentions during the book fair was this SUNDAIT KADAZANDUSUN.
Sundait is a combination from a words SUNUDAI (means asking for a riddle) and KARAIT (means to mention or guessing the answer for the riddle). So the meaning of Sundait is riddle.
Of course, there are a lot of Sundait books during the fair but this is the only one I found very interesting. Why? See what I mean in the picture below...
Every Sundait complete with meaning and illustration, including a brief explanations that related to the KadazanDusun community. The meaning are described in Malay, which is suitable for those who are interested to learn the KadazanDusun language. To be honest, I myself not quite understand what the Sundait means, so the explanations in Malay help a lot.
All 80 Sundait gathered from various regions throughout Sabah, meaning the is more...I hope in the future, the author will issue more Sundait book with translation so it will not lost it time.
If you are interested or need to ask a questions, you can contact the Kadazan Dusun Language & Cultural Centre via email address; email@example.com
I am not selling this book. My intention is only to share something that might interest you :)
Have a nice weekend everyone (^_^)
