Thanks Boufa, I'll overlap the leaves next time. The story behind the Machang is interesting. I'll share that with my family. I don't think anyone has ever heard of that one...!

What the story boufa sent us failed to mention was that the patriotic poet jumped in the river and commited suicide essentially because the King/Emperor of the time stopped believing in the people. He figured that committing suicide would convince the King, after seeing people were willing to die for the country, to once again believe in the people.

Or something like that.
