I lost quite a number of names, email address and info that I need to update. To those of you who wrote but are not listed please email me. Thanks. Hard disk crashed.
This is the list of all known Bidayuh on Internet (at least those with whom I am in contact with through e-mail and who kindly permit me to include them in this list).
If you want to add your name to this list, please email me (click
here) with the following:
full name, hometown, current residence, email address and anything else you want to share with others.
The general idea behind this list is to tell the world that there are other races in Malaysia. Sarawakians are different- we have different history, that there are various ethnic groups in the state, we are unique, etc. This list might come in handy in the future.
Hope this list is useful to you all. Please contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or corrections.
Please visit this site often to get the latest list.
Some of the email add maybe out of date since some of my friends may have graduated and are back in Malaysia. If you guys happen to visit this site please give me your latest info, so I can update it here.
Please don't misuse this list. Keep it strictly social- like making e-pals, keeping in contact with friends, exchanging info etc.
To those of you who wrote in to be included but are not listed,
please write again. You are missing because my computer was down
during those times. Sorry.

I am a budayuh of bijagoi origin student from taylor college. i would like to give few recommendation about the web page that you have created.
I think you have to put more pictures about the bidayuh societies from all over the place they sited at. Apart from that also provided more
reliable and interesting facts that could attract people to visit this sites such migrations history, cultures, and also stories from the old folks. I
would be greatfull if this web page can be assessed by many people especially the tourists or our own people as well for educational used and
promoting the people...My ultimate suggestion would be the attempt to provide marketable presentation to this web page. Thank you for the
opportunity given to express my comments here.. Long live Okuk sok jagoi babang (formerly known as Bung Jagoi)
I'm completely impressed with the effort that you have taken. Every now and then I would browse it through to keep me up with the latest news
or gossip from Lundu, Bau or Kuching. I'm hoping to bump into some old friends or former school mates from SMK Lundu. You were my
teacher for a while in my second and third former-thank you for being one of the teachers who had made me who and what I am today. I won't
blame you if you can't recall; I understand that entirely because I am one now. I'm Ernice Jipem and now attatched to SMK Taman S.E.A. in SS2

One of my specialists tasks was, Medical orderly for the troop and I used to hold a daily clinic for the villagers when I was in the Fort and not patrolling the boarder climbing to the top of Gunong Rhya etc. At one time I lost a realy nice stainless steel pocket knife, you can imagine my supprise, when during the next clinic a small group of children came up to me and presented my knife to me. I would very much like to re visit Stass, Has it changed much. I would also like to visit Limbang as it will be 40 years this December since I lost a realy good friend there .

One day in September/October you took my friend William and I to Bau to show us around there. At that time we also met a friend Nancy Joesel, she is from Bau as well. Last thing I heard about her is that she is in France now. William, who is just back from a trip to Kuching has tried to contact her but nobody seems to know her address or phone number.
I thought I give you an email, since you are also from Bau and you are migh able to help us finding her address or phonenumber. Maybe you can ask her parents:
any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Name: Jack Rhodes
Greetings from St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. Just a quick note to say that I enjoyed your website. You have done a really nice job of developing it. It was great to see some pictures of Bau. I lived there for two years from January 1968 to December 1969. My wife and I were in the Peace Corps and lived on the campus of Bau Government Secondary School. She taught at the school, and I worked with teachers at about 20 primary schools around the Bau area -- lots of long walks through the forests! Do you know any of the former students from that time period? Some of the students I remember are Dilol, Choo Miaw Kim, Christian Sudien and Loh Poh Leong. Some of the teachers were Moh Mee Siang, Ng Jork Teck and Angela Chong. It was a wonderful time, and I have many fond memories of Bau. Does "Bong" still have a noodle shop on the Bazaar? I really loved the mee goreng and the curry rice! I hope to make a return visit one of these days. I have never been back since my stay there.

Mark & Alice Besecker
Put me on the Net, and I hope to hear from my Bidayuh friends soon.
My name is Chu Pau Thiam, and I am a US-trained civil engineer. I am a non-Bidayuh, of Chinese and Sino-Dusun parentage, which makes me a Sino-Kadazan, or nowadays, called a Sino-Kadazandusun.
I worked in various capacities as a civil/structural engineer in Sabah (Beaufort, Tawau, Bukitgaram, Kota Kinabalu) before joining Sarawak Shell Berhad in December 1992. From Dec. '92 until June '99, I was with Sarawak Shell in Lutong, Sarawak as a civil project engineer. I got to know quite a lot of good Bidayuh friends from Sarawak Shell, Petronas. You know who you are. Unfortunately, I have lost touch with most of them, and would like to rekindle ties again.
I was also an active hasher with the Miri Hash House Harriers.
I really enjoyed my stint in Sarawak, having visited some of the more interesting places, like Mulu Caves, climbing Mt. Mulu, visiting Lambir National Park, Batu Niah National Park, hashing in Lambir, over-nighting at Logan Bunut, etc. etc.
I am currently working for a major engineering firm in Jackson, Mississippi. Living the southern life, and lots of soul food and the blues! If you're ever down south in Mississippi, please do call for a bit of southern hospitality!
I would like to reopen ties to all my Bidayuh friends again, and would really appreciate it if you could write me at my office email address:

Keep up the good work and write more about the Bidayuh and our culture. Adat neh boyo biguna, asal adat te me dooi me dooi otoe neh. It is what distinguishes one group of people from the other. So keep on keeping records of our culture even if a very small number of people including the Bidayuh read it. In any case you have at least one interested Bidayuh. I hope very much that when I retire I would do research and writing on the Bidayuh. Perhaps we could do it together!
I firmly believe that it is a good thing to maintain any culture however insignificant. It adds richness and diversity to the world's culture.

Your home page should be of great interest to anthropologists like me who drops by once a while at the Sarawak site to look for something new. You have laid a very good basis for a very good page on the Bidayuh, and you made a good start with yourself and the Bidayuh in Bau. I am quite curious about the Bidayuh group you are referring to in your hpage -the Jagois or the Singghi? I always passed and stopped over in Bau when I was doing research among the Selako in Lundu in 1986/7. However, because of a spinal injury (and surgery) I have not been able to go to the field on my Yamaha scrambler. Perhaps a year after this. I hope to pay you a visit if and when I pass that way.
p.s. by the way is the bau town still there? i heard it is sinking.
I have done some fieldwork on the Selako and Lara since 1976 and two of my theses (B.A. and M.A.) on the Selako have been deposited at the Sarawak Museum Archives. I hope to deposit my Cambridge PhD thesis on the same group in the near future. I appreciate your valuable and hard work on putting up a page on the Bidayuh of Bau district. I always wished I have the time to put up a simple page like yours. But we have many seminars, lectures, meetings and also research to do.So in the end we have to be satisfied with others have done on the net. If you need some information on the Selako and Lara just e-mail me. I will try to squeeze some time to help you.
