text: The Ang's house is 123 yards long. Ahon says that it has been added to of latter years and now beats Chui's which previously held the record. There was one fairly new head on a small platform on the rubber tree in front of the Ang's house.
text: The old Ang is still alive but he appears to have abdicated.
text: Sangnyu said that they intended to build a village on Poihong, a hill near Bhitar Namsang next year. A very astute move.
