Food Stories, Timor
Michelle Lai

Hi there. Good article, but not quite precise. The word “ai-han” means indeed food in general, but it puts the emphasis in vegetable ones and it is rather unusual to hear it being used to refer to meat or fish. There’s another commonly used word for food in Tetun which entails all food no matter its kind: “hahán”. This being said, good read!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
