Jelebu villages have names and boundaries, and a villager can usually tell people where these are; although villages are not clearly nucleated there are, nevertheless, some ecological features which separate them. In some places, where the land rises steeply from the valley floor, there is no land suitable for house sites and a break in the strip of houses running along the valley edge. The inhabitants of a village use the same path to the roadside, the same coffee and provision shop, the same bus stop. Village sentiments are phrased in much the same way as those attached to the correct relationship between members of a kin-group. The word kampong , although translated as village, is not so precise. A number of activities or associations would seem to recruit the members on a village basis, in that most of the members are resident in a particular village.
