Location: Ba' Kelalan, Sarawak
Description: Almost 3000 feet above sea level in the Ba' Kelalan Highlands, Gadung Abai walks through a paddy field ripe for harvesting. On her head is her 'raung' (in Lun Bawang) and on her back is a 'raing'. In her hand she holds a 'rinuh' for winnowing. Almost all the Lun Bawang in Ba' Kelalan is involved in the cultivation of paddy. It is said that the tastiest rice comes from here. More than 14 types of paddy can be found in Ba' Kelalan, which is also the origin of wet paddy farming.
