The Nubaq Laya Experience

The Nubaq Laya Experience

Nubaq Laya is a traditional Kelabit dish found in Bario. It consists of rice cooked to a porridge-like texture that is wrapped in a large leaf known as daun isip.

According to Tepuq Bulan, Nubaq Laya is commonly known as the “Bario Energy Bar”. After a long day of work at the paddy field, a Nubaq Laya definitely helps!

My first encounter with the Nubaq Laya happened on the very first day that I was assigned to Tepuq Bulan.
