Back to the days that cigarettes were not common, people could not buy cigarettes easily as nowadays.
They needed to pick wild tobacco and made cigarettes by themselves, which cost a month. So they cherish every single cigarette.
Now, we live in big cities and we can get what we need very easily.
The more convenient our life is, the more connection to the land we lost.
Maybe someday kids will think that watermelons grow up on the trees.
These 3 days, let's slow down the tempo of life and figure out the lifestyle that we've lost.
From pick tobacco to handmade pipes. From observe the tidal to pick some shellfish for dinner from intertidal zone.
Every single part needs you to slow down and if you want to do anything quickly, you will lose the meaning of this itinerary.
For people in the tribe, life is the wisdom of how to get along with lands and the sea is like their natural market.
For us, lands are maps in books and the sea is so mysterious and beautiful.
If you have time, come and join us. Follow elders and learn how they get along with lands and the sea.

After arriving Kaluluan tribe, there is a short introduction for us to know more about this place.
Lunch boxes are made by elders in the tribe. Have lunch with wind from the sea, simple but happy. It's the taste belonging to Kaluluan.
Wild bamboos and tobacco, all ingredients are from the nature. we start from collecting, which make us be closer to the lands.
We figure out how to make cigarettes in the traditional way from elders' memories. Thick or light can be adjusted as you like. Each cigarette is made from yourself, which is very meaningful and unique.
Local ingredients with elders' creativity will surprise you !
Smoke the cigarette you made with the sound of wave. It doesn't matter if you don't smoke, just lie on the beach and embrace the sky full of stars.
The other way to smoke the tobacco. Made from bamboos, it's not difficult to make pipes but it needs all your attention. Slow and patience are the only tips for good pipes.
After a period time of focus, it's time to refill your energy !
The elders are really good at getting "treasures" from the intertidal zone, which are gifts given by the sea. Follow elders and get some shellfish for our dinner !
"Kaluluan only" style dinner with all ingredients from the tribe. After dinner, sing or chat with each other or some stories about this place. It's daily happiness in the tribe.
Stand on the top of this secret place and you can see the whole Kaluluan.
Before leaving, some free time for you and the land.
