I wanted to experience for myself collecting and hunting in the jungle. For the longest time, I have asked Raman to allow me to follow him into the jungle. Raman, a Semai Orang Asal from Cameron Highlands, rely on the jungle to earn money as well as to feed his family. Earning money and feeding his family are two distinct aims each time Raman sets out. This trip with Raman thought me some important lessons in life.
