"Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.""The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it. "

Yesterday I saw an interesting article about being a kadazan or dusun? Firstly I would like to say that I am proud to be a Dusun. A Dusun Tindal actually.
When I was in school some of my dusun classmate would not admit that they are dusun. They said dusun is a “sogumau” or yokels or unsophisticated people. So, they called themselves Kadazan. Me, being a "sogumau", doesnt' make any different at all. But, why the word "sogumau" lemongrass? I wonder. Can anyone explain?

I volunteered for flood duty ie answering distress phonecalls, recording and reporting to the District Officer and PKR of Kota Marudu. Not only that, I also helped distributing cook food (tapau) and mineral water to flood victims @SMK Tandek. Flood victims been evacuated to school and balai rayas.
*Sigh* Phew! What a relief when the rain stopped pouring that evening.
