Photographer's Note

No...it's not a spelling mistake.

This traditional dance was brought over from the Mindanao archipelago by the Suluks and does not originate from Bajau tribe in the Semporna district of Sabah. The intermingling relationship between the Bajau and Suluk in those early days resulted in the dance becoming a living heritage of the Bajau community residing in Semporna.

The phrase "daling daling" actually originated from the English word "darling". The main characteristic of the dance is the interchange of quatrains between the male and female dancers and is usually performed as an entertainment in various occasions.

The workflow:
1. Adjusting level to get detail
2. Velvia action and adjust color for natural tone
3. Unsharp Masking
4. Neat Image:Remove half noise for soft focus effect.
