Location : Dusun Medeng, Desa Sungkung II, Kecamatan Siding, Kabupaten Bengkayang, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.

We arrived three days ahead of the Nyobeng celebration and it was a wise choice because it gave us an opportunity to peek into their daily lives especially of the women folk.

Except for a few convenience stores, most material for traditional cooking had to be sourced from either their farms or the jungle.  From as early as 7 in the morning we could see them hurrying with their machetes and baskets strapped over their foreheads. Some would have little children tagging behind.

Here in Sungkung Medeng / Anep, the technique had a little variation with the bamboos arranged vertically rather than inclined like most parts of Asia. Fire would be burning on both sides. This variation prevented the burning of the rice, perhaps. Interesting indeed.
