Malaysia: Going Rubber Tapping

Ktemoc takes a break from serious commentary on his blog and remembers a rubber tapping experience from his younger days. “Unc assigned me to a young lady instead of a man that I expected. She would call for me at 4-ish. “But Unc, don’t they tap in the morning?” He laughed and replied that it was 4-ish in the early morning, and not late afternoon as I had initially thought. 4 a.m? Gulp, what had I gotten myself into?”
