One of the latest tourism product in Sabah is the Rumah Terbalik (upside down house) at Tamparuli. Rumah Terbalik is opened to public since early February 2012 and has attracted not only local but also foreign tourists.

Before we stepped into the house, there is a white signboard clearly states that we are not allowed to take any pictures inside the house. So there is no photos to be shared for the interior part of the house.

在我们还没有踏入屋子前,这里就有个白色的告示牌清楚写明我们不能在屋内拍照。所以这里就没有分享任何屋内的照片。

This Rumah Terbalik is first of its kind in South East Asia and among the few upside down structures in the world.

这倒反屋在东南亚是前所未有的,在全世界是其中一座仅有的倒反建筑物。

Rumah Terbalik
Remember the giant gong post I shared previously? Here I saw the gong again! For Dusun and Bajau people, gong is presented as dowry and also being used as door bell. The guide for Rumah Terbalik said we must hit the gong 3 times to alert the host. 

记得我前几篇分享的锣吗?这里我又看见锣鼓了!在Dusun 和Bajau的民族眼里,锣是他们的嫁妆也是用作门铃。导览员说我们必须敲击3次以让屋主知道有客人到来。

Rumah Terbalik

The house is equipped with living room, toilet, kitchen and bedrooms. Inside, one will be fascinated with all the things being upside down. The cups, the books, the fans, the air conditioner all being upside down. At some points, I stared to imagine how it looks like in normal way.

这屋子里面有客厅,厕所,厨房和睡房。在里面,你会对这些倒反过来的物件惊叹。杯子,书本,风扇,冷气全都是倒反过来的。在某时刻,我还紧紧盯着试想象这些物件若是反回来会是怎样的。

There's no chance of snapping a picture in the house silently as that's a guide walks beside you. Admire all with your eyes! It only took me around 15 minutes to finish the tour inside the house.

在里面无法偷拍因为那导览员就在我们的身边。就用眼睛好好欣赏咯!在这大概只花了我15分钟的时间就看完了整间屋子里的东西。

 Outside, there is  a garage with the car being parked upside down. 
屋子外面还有个停车棚,那里就有一辆车倒反泊在那里。

And I'm the strongest girl in Malaysia who able to lift the car up xo
我就是马来西亚最强的女生,因为我可以扛得起一辆车子 xo
