Once in my life, I wanted to take a break of usual life and take a look at monkey pot...deep in the jungle in Borneo.
I saw a bed of monkey pot. It was the time when i was in Borneo Island. Joining a trail with some friends, to meet up with nomadic native, a tribe called Penan.
I saw a bed of monkey pot. It was a long journey indeed, hop off from plane, on 4WD for 6 hours, off road for 2 hours and finally uphill on foot for 1 hour.
It was the time when i saw the monkey pot. The local told me, the monkey pot is a mean of survival. For those living inside here, it is source of water, naturally filtered. In the other side of human life, things might be different than what we used to think.
That day we decide to leave our usual life for something else. Living in the world without mobile phone or android, without lap top and internet, no FB, no McD, no streaming TV, no MP3. with neither bed nor fridge.
In the other side of human life, every little things get to the basic. Shall we say they are pathetic. Or instead should they feel pitiful for us.
We are pitiful because we are fragile, cant live without mobile phone, android, lap top, internet, FB, fridge and bed. We cant live without pollution and contamination, artificial flavour and fake colour.
In the other side of human life, they have the whole jungle as their playground. They have rivers for their leisure pool. They have stars for their lights. They dont have to pay for their foods. They dont have to worry about monthly bill and bank installment.
For them, jungle is their life and blood. Without jungle they cant survive. But someday after that I was thinking, can we survive in jungle for more than 2 days?
The day I went back, I kept the memory of staying with them in the painting of monkey pot.
In the other side of human life, things are different than what we used to think. Chill...
