The first pic. shows the front view, back view, side view and the almost side view. Now we know there are various ways and styles of making those shorts. Thanks for sharing this informative pic., Neil.


Very often we see young orang asli girls with tight jeans and trendy tops do their grocery shopping at Tesco Mutiara Damansara. My friend told me many young orang asli youths like to do jamming in his music studio. They love music and they are fun lovers too.


The man on the right of the first pic. was smoking 'rokok daun'. I was told these 'rokok daun' are 'more keras' than Marlboro. Smile The other day, while buying my favourite rojak, saw the rojak seller rolling the 'rokok daun' with small pieces of paper. He used his own saliva to glue the 'kertas rokok' after rolling those 'rokok'. He put the rolled 'rokok daun' (more than 10 sticks) neatly into a Dunhill box. No one knows they are actually 'rokok daun'. Smile


The man on the second pic. was carrying a back bag but see where he put his knife or 'parang'. It's dangerous but it's more convenient to 'potong' anything, I suppose! Wink Wonder how many flying birds he caught with that poisonous long bamboo pole. The dog waited patiently for his master to finish his chores. Good and FAITHFUL dog!

Orange,My Father used to Poach,on the odd occassion.I sometimes went with him when I was a young boy and I have heard of a method,amongst Poachers,of bringing down Game Birds,mostly Pheasant,with a fishing rod tipped with burning sulphur,that somehow brought them down in flight.Possibly an old Poachers Yarn.But they only hunted what they needed and took nothing more than they could eat as I am sure the Orang Asli do.To take more than you need destroys tomorrows crop

Hi Jim,


Burning sulphur?! I am sure you have more than you need.

Hi
That poisonous long bamboo pole is a blowpipe used by these people to bring down small game.
I have one just like it in my bedroom complete with quiver and at least one poison dart.

I wonder whether anyone has done a William Tell with a blowpipe i.e shoot an apple off somebody's head.

I think there must have been some sharpshooters with the blowpipe but instead of using an apple, they would have opted for a mango instead. Hmmm! I wonder if anyone ate the fruit after that.

Sharpshooters they are but I doubt the bamboo arrow can pass through the thick and hairy seed of the mango!

Orange, I agree with you that the top pic is indeed very nice. It actually can feature as a centrefold in GQ. Like you say, the loin cloth is shown in different positions as though a model has turned around on the catwalk. I like the guy in the centre of pic with back towards camera. Muscular and well rounded Smile

Ha ha Kayes, I like the hair style of the guy in the centre of pic. I think he used 'inai' or henna to colour his hair. The hair was layered and slightly permed too.

Met our Ipoh neighbour who used to work with Jabatan Orang Asli. His son whom I gave Maths tuition to told me his father helped Orang Asli to improve their crop cultivation. But rumours were going around in the neighbourhood saying he was a spy. SPY?! What nonsense??? Just because he was always away from his family for weeks and there was a Jeep ferried him to and fro? Occasionally when I was in their house giving tuition, I personally saw the words "JABATAN ORANG ASLI" were printed boldly on the jeep which used to ferry him. Some people ..... Sad
