Title

061 Yok Ngon - chronic tuberculosis long stay patient

Description

This Orang Asli man had been in hospital for a long time and was likely to remain so. He occupied his time weaving baskets from rotan that we collected from the nearby jungle. Also he was able to repair chair seats with strips of rotan. His baskets were usually made to order from requests from the local "ex-pat" community, Air Force personnel and other folk interested in the hospital. This provided him with some money to spend in the hospital kedai (shop).
