The origin of the word RUTIK PAUN


Sarawakians call bread as Roti Paun and in melanau it is called Rutik Paun. Not many knows that the word PAUN is actually originated from the word for Bread "pão" in Portuguese.

The word pão is pronounce similar to PA-UN.

The eastern seaboard of Borneo was charted, though not settled, by the Portuguese in the early 16th century. The area of Sarawak was known to Portuguese cartographers as Cerava.

Bread may be introduced in sarawak by the portuguese or indian traders since the word for bread in Hindi पाव (pāv) and in Gujarati is પાઉં (paauun).
