Description:says that Gob was burning the grass, and the Batek ran into the forest, and became Batek. Malays ran to the river and became Malays. Says that Tahaɲ river is red because it is the blood of the water monitor. It is an 'original' river. Because Malays were gutting water monitor there. Tells me that Malays say Batek are 'orang haram'. He tells me that Batek asal were the first to play. Then begins to tell a story. A family move camps, the grandmother is very old. They get to lots of rocks. They go up the Tahaɲ river. They get to batuɁ badən, they leave the grandmother there. He tells about the origins of leeches: a shaman sprinkled fruits around they became leeches. Tells about Batu Keniam: it was the house of a family. They make a house, they go to wash, a kawaw stɨsɛt is making his blowdarts, watches them make the house, he sees the house is getting towards the sky, he calls out "sɛt", he sits on top, and the house becomes small again. They wash their clothes at a place in Kelantan, that becomes a rock as well. Their house is at Gunung Tahan. Then they start talking about the Christians who came, and how this is before even the Batek origins stories. This is also confused with stories of us being descended from monkeys. This recording is also held by the British Library, ID C1773/27/1
