In the famous Hayao Miyazaki film, ‘Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind’, master Yupa returned to his homeland after a year of travelling, only commented with a sigh, “There is hardly any pure land left in this world.”
This is the depiction of our environment today whereby almost every corner of the Earth is polluted. Nevertheless, we are fortunate to find a rare piece of land in Malaysian Borneo, isolated from man-made pollutions, and is known as the last pure land in Sarawak. This place is named Bario.
Bario is situated at the northeast part of Sarawak. Standing at 1,300 metres above sea level, this place is surrounded by rolling hills with clear blue sky and lush greenery. This land is well preserved from generation to generation by the friendly and peace-loving people of the Kelabit tribe. ‘Bario’ in local language means ‘wind blowing through wetlands’, where the valley is windy throughout the year, true to its nickname, the ‘Valley of the Wind’.

Keep rice in air-tight container after opening. Avoid direct sunlight, heat and humid condition.
Wash and soak the rice for 30 minutes, drain the water. Soaking Bario rice results in a softer and more elongated grain.
Add 2 cups of water to every 1 cup of rice.
Once the rice is cooked, let it stand for 5 minutes.
Then open the lid and fluff the rice with a fork . It is now ready to be used.
