Long Singut : The people


Our arrival was greeted by kids. They seems to be undisturbed by presence of strangers.


Some adults that we met in the Longhouse. Not many were present as our visit was unscheduled. During this time of the year, not many were at home as most of them are busy planting and tending their paddy fields. They farm lots were far away and they usually hitch hiked on logging vehicles.



The elders, especially the ladies have elongated ear lobes. This is a dying tradition as the younger generation does not fancy having long ears. Never the less, they do have their arms tattooed like their elders did.
