In a nutshell…
The idea for The Borneo Post SEEDS began about a year ago, first as an idea as a weekly print-publication, and then more recently as a website.

By Danielle Sendou Ringgit email@example.com @danitbpseeds From the brightly coloured masks and costumes to the performer’s rapid movements set to dramatic music, it isn’t hard to see why the art of ‘Bian Lian’ is captivating.
