Here are some of the quirky things that are the most memorable to me:
The display of Batik Kaftans and the arrays of colours are a normal sight in Malaysia BUT the difference with the ones in Terengganu is that instead of the usual cotton/viscose type, these Kaftans are made of SILK!
The Malays and the Chinese are more integrated here in Terengganu. That's the way the East Coast life is. How elated I was with pride when I saw the fine treasure of Malay culture i.e the Jawi alphabets on display everywhere even on a Chinese-owned premise. The Jawi is a major part of our history. Obviously derived from the Arabic alphabets brought in to the old Malacca (Melaka) Kingdom centuries ago by the Arabs. In my state of Melaka in the West Coast, the Jawi is only seen on Muslim graves mostly. How sad. You can't be more dead than THAT.
A quirky clever name to what seems like an advertising board design studio. Obviously a tribute to another reason Terengganu is famous for...........the Turtles!
Yeah! Let's party baby ~ Mr. Turtle says!
