Berat sama dipikul...

A group of red ants (kerengge) helping each other out to build something that looked like a nest. A couple of them held

Cameron Highlands

A local Orang Asli child playing in a playground. Behind him is a tea farm quarters where they live.
Harvesting tea leaves can start as early as 4am in the thick myst. Harvesters are paid by the kilos.
Narrow, winding roads are a norm in Cameron Highlands.
Often, drivers have to hit the horn to signal others when
approaching sharp corners to avoid road accidents.
