Photographer's Note

In the photo, a Kadazandusun is backpacking a wakit, the cylindrical rattan container commonly use to carry produces from ladang or farm, to their village or tamu. This man here, made between USD200 to US300 per acre of tapping rubber trees. The latex is mixed with acid to coagulate it. The coagulated latex is then rolled into sheets and dried.

Just about all the villagers in Sabah, wear "Adidas Kampong". It is a Malaysian made rubber shoes that resembled the kind of shoes or boots wear by soccer players. The rubber shoes is waterproof, wipe dry and its studded soles has better traction on mud that Vibram could only dream about.

Note the solar panel behind the thatched house.
