שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Traditional Malays

Posted By Snow at 2/20/2011

The traditional malay house
I remember my grandma's house have stilts like this
It looks very cozy for the lush tropical greenery
وتسلموا على أهلها [Q24:27-28]


The giant wau bulan (moon kite)
Kite flying is a fun recreational activity & famous in the east coast
I once made this kite in school, only smaller in size


The art of batik textile
It's special for piping hot wax to the pattern edges before coloring
A finished batik textile looks like this


Decorated wedding gifts
Several trays of gifts are exchanged between the bride & groom
After the nikah, they exchange rings and only then they can touch | photo


Asam Laksa
I love this fish-based sour noodle, easily found at the night market | video
& many others - kuih muih, apam balik, bubur kacang, cendol | cookies
Only I personally still need rice & dishes to fill up (◠9◠)

Just a note

Malaysia is located here in the South East Asian region. It has its origins from several ancient Sultanates - the most famous is the Malaccan Sultanate [ref] which ruled the international Malacca port, once a trading center between the East and West.

Then the Malaccan Sultanate fell under the Portuguese & Dutch; followed by the British Empire, which also took over the other Sultanates. A brief Japanese invasion during WW2 and ethnic cooperation led to its independence from the British in 1957.

Once Tanah Melayu, it is renamed to Malaysia in 1963. [ref] The country included the Peninsular, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore; but in 1965 Singapore withdrew itself. The pace of modernization grew rapidly towards the 21st century, and the country is now a mix of the old & the new. الحمد لله
