The Honey Nights. Hamsah and his brother Boni cut the honey from the giant bees' only comb. The precious nectar falls into a basket hanging below the branch. The basket is then lowered by ropes. Depending on the abundance of flowers and the time of the harvest, twenty or so combs can yield a harvest of 100, even 140 kg of honey per lalau. Borneo, Indonesia
