During the ancient time of Borneo, Chinese merchants from China travelled very far inland to trade with local tribe....& local tribe "bought" their jars for bury their ancestors' skulls, bones & belonging. Barter system was popular at that time. Chinese would exchange their jars/clay pots with local tribes for jungle products & others.
Wet paddy field & grassland are common scene in the highland of northern Sarawak. It is a paradise on earth.
