tamu donggongong.. greetings.

Friendly and cheerful atmosphere at Tamu Donggongong. Vendors at the dried seafood stalls (salted fish, anchovies and shrimps).

The Donggongong township holds their weekly tamu (market) on Thursdays and Fridays. Not a huge market in this pre-dominantly Kadazan township, but it is easy to spend an hour or two here. An enjoyable market to visit.

Regular vendors at tamu Donggongong. Many of them move from tamu to tamu, as each district holds their tamu on separate days of the week.

My conversation with the gentleman went like this:-

Me> Mister, can I take a photo of you?
Him>I am old already, not handsome anymore.
Me> hahahaha.. Mister, my camera make you handsome.
Him> Take photo of the girl.. she is very pretty. (hahahaha)
