Ubah My Bird
Ubah, a Malay word means change.
Ubah My Bird, change my bird?! What are you thinking?
This is my bird, Ubah. Yeah, its name is Ubah...
Ubah, printed on the back.
It isn't a character from any recent animation like Rio. It is also not a toy like Barbie. It's a by-product of recent 2011 Sarawak State Election. from a political party, DAP. This cute hornbill is now the party's mascot...
Just like Superman with an S on the chest, Ubah has its party logo on it.
I am not a politician, neither am I an activist nor a hardcore supporter to this party. I am also not a Sarawakian, I asked one of my local friends there to get me this as I find it quite adorable and exhibits the culture of the indigene in Sarawak.
Perhaps it represents Sarawakians who desire for a change and better future?
Ubah, ready to take off?
