text: In the afternoon the Ang of Punkhung came for a piece of the head. I declare at first that I want to bring it myself to be able to watch the gennas but finally I give in to his endless pleading and I give him a small piece now. The same old song and dance with the same result had happened with Hungphoi yesterday.
