My month of May started out from Day 0, why? Because I am once again doing the 30 Day Blog Challenge! Previously I’ve done this way back in December 2010, but I only managed to do it until Day/Post 24 due to high fever. My illness forced me to stop the challenge, didn’t enjoy Christmas and only fully recovered on new year’s eve. 1 yead had passed, I have a new blog, this idea came to me again. So I say.. Challenge Accepted!
Rather than posting random entry like last time, I will stick to this 30 Challenge Questions originally from Thoughts of a Randomnista blog. This entry will be updated to insert links to each question I successfully blogged.

I hope to successfully complete this challenge and finally let the ghost of failure rest in peace. You will see a lot more interesting stories from me, so stay updated with my challenge journey. Today also marks day 1 of the most celebrated event in Sabah, this is the month where we celebrate Tadau Kaamatan a.k.a Harvest Festival. There will be a lot of cultural activities, Unduk Ngadau beauty pageant and more. So don’t stay at home, if there is any event near your place, make sure to join and take some great photograph, share it online and show the spirit of Aramaiti to the world!
It would be fitting to share this song from our legendary singer, John Gaisah title Norikot Nodi Bulan Lima (The month of May is here). Enjoy listening and see you in my next entry.
Norikot nodi bulan lima
Kapanandakan tadau tagaayo
Tadau tagayo do kokotuan
Koubasanan tokou toinsanan
Kanou noh oinsanan
Kanou noh rumamai
Kanou no gumiak
Oi odu aki om nogi oinsanan
Kinongoho oku no doh suminding
Sinding nopo ti nga pangaramai
Montok tadau do tagayo tokou
Kanou noh oi odu
Angatai ii aki
Kanou oi daling
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
