實吧荷的傳統清明祭祖 traditional tomb festival in Spaoh, Betong

木中省的實吧荷,人口約有一萬七千人,主要是馬來人,內陸一點的是伊班人.華人只佔了非常的少數.過去估計華人人口有約500人,現在看來,是有減無增.
 差不多整百年來,當地以客屬河婆為主的華人,多數以傳統的方式來舉行清明祭祖儀式,至今不改.而且,在祭祀後,還將剩下的祭品公開拍賣,以籌經費供來年使用.

the tomb festival celebration of the Chinese in Spaoh, Betong, is of a very traditional way. as can be seen from the pictures below. Spaoh is about 300 km from Kuching by road. a small town with around 17,000 population, mostly Malay and Iban. Chinese only consist of around 500, decreasing as expected.
