Boros Kopongukaban (Introduction)

It is with great pleasure that I present to you this page devoted to the language of my native ancestors, the Kadazan Dusun folk of the North Borneo. The Kadazan Dusun languages are such beautiful languages to be left behind… yet, that’s what happened. Many of the new generation nowadays know little about the languages. I hope I can contribute in any way, to place, to grow and to keep the interest of the young generation to learn and understand more of our Kadus Languages. This might be just any page that you can find in the internet, but this is the small thing that I could do to contribute. Let's keep this language live within our souls through music.

meet my lil friend, Johnny.

This here is my little friend, Johnny Paulus Ola. He is 13 years old and lives in Bukit Harapan Shelter Home in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. He looks pretty normal in this photo, but in real life, this kid suffered partial brain damage and is an epileptic. On paper, he has a mother, but in reality he is the unwanted child of a raped victim.

He loves singing and can sing a few songs in Malay and English, which for me, is an amazing talent considering his disability. He also loves dog. He has a dog named 'Kutud' and he always fed it. He is naughty at times and can be stubborn too, always gave headache to his caretaker, sis Sing.

Whenever I come to visit, he is one of the persons who will welcome me. He talked a lot and sometimes I really wish I could understand all his words. In the evening, we will play together in the park or just walk around the buildings. He likes the swing. Sometimes, we'll just sit on the swing chair and sing together. His favourite songs were Eh Eh (Nothing else I can say) by Lady Gaga and OK by T2.

Once, during my visit to Bukit Harapan. I cried because of some hardships I had in life, then he came to me, wipe away my tears and said 'kakak, jangan nangis' (sis, don't cry) and held my hand tightly. This little comfort he gave me, makes me feel a whole lot better.

He might be left unwanted, he might be different, he might be unnormal, but for me, he is special and for that, he is loved. God bless you always, buddy.
