dc.description Fish traps are essential to the Orang Asli, and fortunately easy and quick to make. Bertam wood is collected from the nearby jungle and then cut into strips and woven into the traps. When ready, they are placed in the bottom of the river bed. At Gombak the Orang Asli were encouraged to make traps and use them in the Sungai Gombak to help supplement their diet. It also meant that they could carry on with their usual jungle activities despite being in the hospital environment. Some visitors to the hospital liked the fish traps so much that they bought them to use as lampshades!
