Replace this example text below with information about you:

The word "Sagiaan" means "all for one and one for all". It is a word which has almost disappeared from the vocabulary of the Kadazan-Dusun people. It is my hope to play a small part, to ensure its survival. My real name is John Tingkas. I have been reinventing myself several times...early life in pharmacy, then a company manager for a big timber company, lately a theologian and now...a durian farmer! In 2016 I started a small family effort called 3T (Tingkas Tree Trust ), dedicated to replanting at least three trees a day on any available land. Shades of making amends for parts played in forest depletion! As a durian farmer I discovered the joy of semi-retirement (seasonal harvest) giving me time for a new love - reading, writing and translating.

I speak English, Malay, Bundu-liwan dialect of Kadazan-Dusun, and little of Chinese Hakka dialect. In my off-time, I read science fictions books, listen to spiritual praise/worship music. I like to visit new places with exotic cultures. I have discovered that Wikipedia is a very good source for information on many of my well as share them. Hopefully I can contribute and at the same time help preserve my own people's heritage.
