"Farmer Abu Hassan Ahmad was so attached to his home; he decided to take the whole house with him when he had to move. 'We had lived in the old site for more than 20 years, but now we want to be closer to my mother-in –law to take care of her' "
"The 56 year old farmer said several village elders got about 150 villagers to help with the ‘big move”. Besides helping to carry the house half a kilometer to the new site, the villagers also took part in a “gotong-royong” (communal working together) to clear the land at the new location. It took an hour to move the house."
