The Dragon of Kinabalu

A bed time legend used to be told by my father, and once was the must-read story in the syllabus of history textbook during colonial period.

Unfortunately, the story is forgotten by the Sabahan after the restructure of syllabus, in order to be more Malaya-centric. The history textbook is full of the stories from Malacca and Johore sultanate, without much local knowledge.

With the writing of Owen Rutter, a British colonial officer, this story survives and spreads to UK. The European even converts it into a number of comic videos for their kids. Why don’t we retell this story again to our next generation, in Malay, in Chinese and in Kadazandusun?
