The First Apple Tasting

These are hunter-gatherer children who live in Peninsular Malaysia. They combine camping in the forest with life in a village set up by the government. Going shopping at a store about a 20-minute car journey away from the village is a great “outing” for the children, who usually travel on foot or by raft.

The boys found apples at the store. Fruits are their favorite snacks, and it is rare to find apples in the countryside of tropical Malaysia. The boys had never seen apples before. They asked their mother to buy some. They looked so happy eating the apples while saying to each other, “this is delicious.”
