LAUNCHING OF THE MYSTIC OF BORNEO – KADAYAN
Readers might recall that on November 10, 2007 last year, the above book was featured in Reaping the Benefits. 7 months later, on Thursday, June 26, 2008 the book was officially launched by Sabah's Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Masidi Manjun in Kota Kinabalu. Congratulations to Sdr Amde Sidik on the launching of his book entitled The Mystic of Borneo – Kadayan.

The launching ceremony was held at Sabah Society and attended by prominent Sabah Kadayan leaders amongst them were Y.B. Tuan Hj Ahmad bin Hj Bujang, ADUN Sindumin and Y. Bhg Datuk Hj Isli Hj Siput, ex-Malaysian Senator and a businessman. The presence of Mr G. Thanda, Amde’s former teacher in Government Junior Secondary School (GJSS), Sipitang was a touching moment for Sdr Amde Sidik.
The book is now available at major book stores nationwide and my message to all the Kadayans / Kedayans out there please get a copy. It is about Kadayan / Kedayan and by having a copy in your possession may help our children and the future Kedayan / Kadayan generation to know their root.
Once again I would like to congratulate Sdr Amde Sidik on the launching of his book entitled The Mystic of Borneo – Kadayan. Well done!!!
