Once a year, a three-day party kicks in Damai, the Rainforest World Music Fest. Have attended it about 9 times i think. The early ones were the best – wild bands, great tunes. And lotsa booze.
It got strict at around 2006 onwards. Previously you could cart in cooler boxes filled with crates of beer and party on the lawns. “No outside food and drink allowed” it says now unfortunately. Protecting some cut-throat vendors inside. Problem is they usually sell only beer in there.
There were some crazy times. Loco. We’d order like 70 bottles of tuak from Kuching for the fest. And of course there’s the Camelbak for liquor n cocktails. Never a thirsty moment for sure.
This year, staying inside the venue in one of the show longhouses. Should be a trip. Will be over there by the time this post is published, gettin high.
Usually stay at Permai Rainforest Resort every year, but d greedy pricks raised the rates more than 200% this year! So screw ’em.
Anyway, another drunken festival comin up!
