• 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 Patricia Hului @pattbpseeds     Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so they say. In the eyes of Don Quixote from a novel by Miguel de Cervantes, Dulcinea was the most of beautiful woman in the world.

    By Danielle Sendou Ringgit @danitbpseeds     WHILE THE HISTORY OF how the sape came to be may be lost in the mists of time, old folktales tell of ‘Bali Dayung’, the witch doctor in ritual healing, whose wife fell ill due to a mysterious illness. He tried various healing methods to cure her, meeting with other witch doctors and trying all kinds of available traditional remedies, but none proved successful. One night, he dreamt of meeting an old man who asked him to cut a piece of ‘adau’ wood (Cephalomappa spp.) to craft a sape, which he had to play to heal his wife.
