Try looking for a canary, especially one that sings. Blood noisy bird.

Canaries make pretty tasty snacks. A good singing ones can earn you RM500 per month or more.

I finally managed to take a few pix. These are not "Endura's" quality pix so ...

I just want to show first the Sarawak blowpipe and the nice shield as well, on the right hand side you will see a smaller Orang Asli blowpipe from Cameron Highlands (I have a couple of those as well).

i have 2 blowpipes from orang jahai and orang temiar. different ethnic group of orang asli has different blowpipes though some might be very similar/the same. the one in your picture from CH looks like from orang semai..how long is it? if it's less than 5 feet i think it's made for ornamental purpose for the tourists.

Hi Gaur,

Cheers.
