Check in did not go well today. I did have a meal before I went in to get weighed, I may be retaining water, and the machine could just be off. However, I know I'm not feeling as good as I was last week. Lost some definition in my midsection and arms. I will no longer have any cheat meals on Sunday and will eat only my prepared meals until I am down to 12%. I won't let this set back end me, however it sucks. Eating chicken everyday is not what I prefer to be doing but I set out to accomplish something this year and I won't give up.
Kayan Warrior dancing to a Sape (Orang Ulu 3 or 4-stringed traditional lute) - Orang Ulu, a term coined to represent collective group of indigenous people at Sarawak, consisted by the Kenyah, Kayan, Kelabit, Punan, Lahanan etc, makes up the main population of the northern side of Sarawak. The warrior dance is only performed during big events, such as wedding or during big events. Nowadays, the modernised, younger generations of Orang Ulu are not really interested in these activities, though some of the younger ones are very good at it, depending on your background and level of interest. Usually those raised up at rural areas truly appreciates these centuries old dance, for these are the mark of an accomplished warrior during the golden days of Orang Ulu, where the long house is as tall as the jungle canopy, decorated beautifully with Orang Ulu motives, with black and white pain, with few coloured patterns and during war times. Sape itself is unique to Orang Ulu, and cannot be found elsewhere in the world, although more and more peoples all around the world come to learn it. Shield and sword are the usual accompaniment of the warrior, a dance once done to invoke the spirits of the ancient, to provide strength to the warriors, facing the adversary, big or small, for the sake of the future! Come visit Sarawak to see it with your very eyes, in their traditional costumes.
