I come from Kapit and live in a long house at Nanga Serian, Balleh. I made many great childhood memories there. Many of the villagers are Christian but they are so nice to me even though my religion is different. The best experiences I have are learning how to make Iban rice, hunting and making traditional tapestry.
During the MCO, my grandpa and I always hunted to make some money. The weapons we used to kill the animals were a gun and an Iban traditional weapon called Sangkoh. The best things is I learned so many tips on how to survive in the forest if I get lost.
My hometown also has a fresh water river. In the morning, we always bathe and wash our clothes at the river. The water is so refreshing, when it touches our bodies, we feels like we have a new body. My villagers go fishing for Keli fish, water snails, and Sulai fish.
In the countryside, we have a lot free time and we do beneficial things such as playing Batu Seremban, kick volleyball and Ting-Ting game. Living there can make me stronger and more independent. People work together and look out for one another, creating a greater sense of community.
Lastly, I really enjoy living there because I can get away from negative things and toxic people. I can do everything I love without regret. Hopefully, I can spend my whole life living there.
