almost ripe

location: bario, sarawak

rice might be the staple food for all malaysians but fewer and fewer have ever had a close encounter with stalks of rice, sloshed in wonderfully muddy fields.

bario rice, as i discovered, is special – of a grade above the others – sown onto some of the most remote soils in the outlands of sarawak, by the fingers of some of the gentlest and kindest people in malaysia, upon some of the most mysterious highlands of borneo.
