Description:Dara and Florance discuss their memories of growing up in the Kelabit Highlands. They talk about childhood games and childhood stories of hunting trips and ghosts, comparing games & stories from Pa Umor and Ulung Palang. Among other memories, Dara discusses making houses in the siang bush; getting scared by other children pretening to be buffaloes on the walk home from the farm in Pa Umor; and a game called "raut epik" which involves flicking a stick up from a hole and hitting it for other people to catch. Florance discusses camping in the jungle with her father and reflects on the way that some of the children in Ulung Palang were so scared of ghosts that they even got spooked by the gaps between the planks in the longhouse. They also discuss the Kelabit delicacies of "kelatang" (pink and white larvae) and "u'et" (grubs). The conversation is continued in 'Conversation - Childhood Memories and Games 02' (BAR08092014CH_06). The following equipment was used: Zoom H4N, stereo mic, wind gag, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens.
