ABC Wed: T for tribal chief





http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/

Here I was rubbing shoulders with a tribal chief. This Kelabit chief from the Bario highlands of Borneo was not only big in his position as a chief. He was also a very big man physically.

When I asked to take a photo with him, he obliged, but he probably wonder why. My friends tease that I was flirting.

Please note his long ears.

«Louis» thanks you for your visit to his Memorial Day post. When is ANZAC Day?

«Louis» thanks you for letting him know when ANZAC day is observed. The New Zealanders and the Australians contributed mightily to winning both of the horrific world wars of the 20th century. «Louis» reads a lot of military history, thus he is well aware of the blood the ANZAC troops shed in the cause of freedom.

You weren't flirting, were you? The chief is definitely a big man.

Very cool, Ann! I'm glad he allowed you to take his photo.

It's fun to have your picture with a tribal chief; it seems like he was quite happy to let you do that.. I wish you had told us where you were when it was taken.

Ginny said...

Great shot for T this week. That was gracious of him to let the photo be taken.

Hi again, to answer your question, Did I watch the movie Move it, move it, you know as a matter of fact I did. I thought it was really cute. I think I posted it on one of my other blogs a few months ago.

Thanks for your visit to Ann's Moody Blues today.

He is indeed a huge man compare to the size of regular Asian man. He is nice to agree for picture taking ^_^

I don't think you're flirting, just that sometimes when we go traveling, we tend to take photos of everything not found in our homeland...kekekekkeke
