Description

While on my way to visit a nearby kampong I was surprised to come across this rubber tapper's lone home. I chatted to him in malay and learned that he was a tamil indian and made a living by selling his sheets of latex to visiting chinese traders. He had his own small plantation of rubber trees. You can see the latex sheets hanging below his house. Note also the large banana tree to the right of his roof.
