|Starting Of The Bubu Dance|
It all started with this lovely and welcoming homestay Kampung Hj Mohammad Bagan Datoh,Perak.Bagan Datoh is also known to be the country`s biggest coconut producer.Before reaching Bagan Datoh,Earlier we had lunch in the nearby town of Teluk Intan which was just opposite the iconic leaning tower known as Menara Condong among the locals.
Soon after,we were at the homestay with our foster parents and it was a sight of beauty surrounding the village.Peaceful,calm very green with mild wind blowing in our faces.Not forgetting the sound of water flowing in the nearby river.All of us in the group were entertained with sumptuous food,music,traditional dances and speeches,including the mystical Bubu Dance.The performance was done in an open air compound.The live music and occasionally bursts of laughter went on and on as the crowd got larger.All of us were waiting for the moment to get a glimpse of the Bubu Dance.
The Bubu Dance is actually a traditional dance said to be from the Middle East.Some even say its from our neighboring country Indonesia.Bubu is actually a method of fishing in the olden days but,could still be found in the rural areas when it comes to fishing techniques.It is made of bamboo and cage like.In order to get a good catch in the olden days,fisherman will perform a ritual dance to woo the sea spirits for a hefty catch
