Ngepan Indu Iban (Part 4)
What is "marek ubu"? Marek ubu is one of many necklaces in the ngepan Indu Iban among others like tali ujan (long strings of silver necklaces). Marek ubu is one of the most difficult accessories to find and I did not manage to wear one. So as the alternative, I wore a faux pearl silver necklace so that it looks like a marek ubu from afar....pictures below:
|Now that's a marek ubu/ marek igi bemban (the shortest necklace)|
So BHF is not about "all original accessories". (unlike competitions in State Level where the authenticity of the accessories determined your win)...therefore I would like to encourage those who are interested in joining the Kumang or Keling BHF 2012 competition to just join and don't be too distressed if you do not have the original complete set.
Good Luck and I look forward to see all of you next year!
