MATIC: The Borneo Songket Heritage Festival 2024

Borneo Festival!

After lunch at Restoran Kader we caught a Rapid KL bus #300 for a fare of RM1.00 (approximately USD/EUR0.20) to Jalan Ampang. We got off at the Renaissance Hotel bus stop and walked across headed to the Malaysian Tourism Information Centre, better known as MATIC.

The Borneo Songket Heritage Festival 2024 was being held here. We browsed the various stalls and got:

  • a pair of handmade clay earrings for RM25.00
  • 4 batik scrunchies for RM20.00
  • a bottle of jam for RM8.00
  • a bottle of sambal also for RM8.00
  • 2 pairs of Lun Bawang earrings for RM20.00 
  • a Lun Bawang bracelet for RM25.00

We also met with our favourite beadstress, Caroline and got from her:

  • a pair of Kabo earrings for RM30.00
  • a Kelabit necklace for RM190.00

A handsome bounty for Cat indeed! In the end we spent RM326.00 (approximately USD69/EUR64), money well spent if you ask us since the items on sale are not normally found elsewhere. 

We then walked out of MATIC and eventually made our way home. Be sure to watch our previous video where we started our day running errands at Plaza Low Yat as well as Pudu Plaza, and having a banana leaf lunch at Restoran Kader!
