Keroncong band performance

It’s actually the name of a ukulele-like instrument & an Indonesian musical style which typically makes use of the keroncong (i.e. The sound chrong-chrong-chrong comes from this instrument). So, the band consists of a flute, a violin 🎻 , a melody guitar 🎸 , a cello, string bass in pizzicato style & with either a female / a male singer 👩🏽‍🎤👨🏽‍🎤

 

She 👩🏻 has learnt that 1️⃣ ukulele named “cak”, a steel-stringed. The instrumentalist strums chords with up to 8️⃣ strums per beat in 4/4 rhythm. The off-beat strums are often accentuated. The other ukulele named “cuk” is slightly larger & has nylon strings. As a set, both the “cak” & “cuk” form an interlocking pair that mostly gives Kroncong its characteristic kron & chong 😊

Tor Tor Dance & Gordang Sembilan

Tor Tor dance & 9️⃣ great drumbeats/ percussion (Gordang Sembilan in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language) are the cultural heritage of Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s Mandailing community, which originally came from Mandailing, North Sumatera of Indonesia 🇮🇩

 

It’s a slow motion dance with the movement of the feet / toe to toe 👣 & hand 🤚🏻 movements with a music 🎵🎶 rhythm played with the traditional music instruments e.g. Gondang, Flute, Trumpet 🎺 etc. At present, Tor tor dance is to celebrating harvesting, welcoming guests, wedding 🤵🏾👰🏽 ceremonies. No ❌ longer associated with the religious / mystical ceremonies in the past years

Kuda Kepang

It was 1️⃣st introduced in the early 20th century when Javanese immigrants 🇮🇩👭👬👫, who brought this unique dance & 1️⃣st arrived in the southern tip of  West Malaysia 🇲🇾 It’s usually performed by 9 to 15 pax, usually all men dancers traditional Javanese clothes

In the past years, Kuda Kepang is believed to have a strong linkage to the spirit world, however at present it becomes a regular dance performance for the birthday 🎂 of the Sultan of Johor, state government celebrations & cultural shows in Malaysia 🇲🇾

It’s a traditional Javanese braided hobbyhorse dance & in the dance performance, all the dancers will ride the 2️⃣D mock horse which is traditionally made of bamboo 🎍🎋, then painted & decorated with colorful paints and cloth to resemble a horse 🐎 🐴 Some of the dance movements in the Kuda Kepang rituals are based on traditional Malay silat

Beats of Selangor 😃 ~ Temuan Indigenous Tribe

The Sewang Bahbola Dance by the Temuan Tribe @📍Orang Asli Museum, KM 24, Jalan Pahang Lama Gombak, 53100 Gombak, Selangor, West Malaysia 🇲🇾

Kubang Jela House Stay @ Terrapuri Heritage Village, Terengganu, Malaysia

Yeah‼️ From the recent travel 🚌🚍 to Terengganu 🇲🇾, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had an exclusive privilege to meet 👋🏻 & have a short chat 🗣👤 with the founder of Terrapuri Heritage Village, Mr Alex Lee 👨🏻‍💼 He is a Chinese Peranakan, born & grown up in Marang, Terengganu 🇲🇾

She 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝✍🏻 here about all she 👩🏻 has learnt from her chat 🗣👤 with Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼about the ups ⬆️ & downs ⬇️ in pursuing his passion ❤️ towards the conservation & restoration of Terengganu traditional Malay architecture 🏡🏘 He 👨🏻‍💼 has proudly told that he loves 💗 each old houses 🏡🏘 that he has collected thus far & each 1️⃣ is unique to him with a story behind respectively 😀

Question: Can you spot SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 in below photos 📸📸 album? She 👩🏻 was having a nice 👍🏻 pre-dinner chat 🗣👤with Mr Alex @ Sesayap Courtyard, Terrapuri Heritage Village during her recent stay

 

 

 

Ha…Ha…She 👩🏻 actually thought that Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼was an architect by profession. Mr Alex has confirmed that he is a tourism industry player with own tourism businesses in guest house 🏡 , boutique hotel, dining 🍽🍴, cafe ☕️, tours, souvenirs (batik) 🛍🎁 etc.

Guess what❓⁉️

Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼1️⃣st started to learn about guest house 🏡 renting (i.e. used his grandpa 👴🏻 ‘s 2️⃣ shoplots 🏢🏢) at his young age 🧑🏻 with initial intention to save for his education fund 👨🏻‍🎓He used to drawing ✍🏻🎨🖌own brochure to selling the rooms at bus stations 🚌🚌 & received great responses from many backpackers 👫👭👬back then. He 👨🏻‍💼also learnt how to package his room with simple breakfast ☕️🥪, yes ✅, he can cook‼️👍🏻

 

 

Ended up he 👨🏻‍💼 continues his tourism business till now without further study ❌👨🏻‍🎓despite in years between 2006 to 2008 with a cross road 🔀 for his choice, whether IT vs heritage, nature & culture. Obviously he 👨🏻‍💼has chosen the later. Ha…Ha…He has shared in his IG (refer above 📸) recently that he wants to be a Youtuber (IT) now (2019) being inspired by his youngest son 👨‍👦, a famous gaming Youtuber

Also she 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her wonderful overnight 😴💤🛌 in Kubang Jela house 🏡 in this village. Hmm…A night 🌌🌃 stay just too short, personally she 👩🏻 recommends for a 3️⃣D2️⃣N to appreciating the layout of an inspired 17th century Terengganu Palace 👑 as an great 👍🏻 output of restoration the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 of at least 💯 years & above, as well as its peaceful village surrounding 🏞

 

💯 years meaning easily at least with 4️⃣ generations before Mr Alex👨🏻‍💼bought the old houses 🏡🏘 Some of the houses 🏡🏘 were once belong to the royal families 👑👑 Woow‼️😲 He 👨🏻‍💼has shared that 30 years ago, a full Terengganu old house 🏠 each cost of RM30K to 40K approximately 😊

How about now❓⁉️

He 👨🏻‍💼 estimates RM300K & above each old house 🏠 at current. He 👨🏻‍💼 has no  intention to resell any of his Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 collected, though he 👨🏻‍💼 was being offered with great 👍🏻 prices 💱💰couple of times in the past 😃

Hmm…Does Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼regret❓⁉️

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻can confidently said “No ❌” from her observation, Mr Alex’s achievements from Terrapuri Heritage Village & chat with him🗣👤 about his journey

Why❓⁉️

You will be impressed as Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼is very knowledgeable & passionate ❤️ in what he is doing for Terengganu old houses restoration & conservation 🏡🏘

 

Over the years, he 👨🏻‍💼hopes to continue & enhancing his project as a tourism products, currently he 👨🏻‍💼is running this Terrapuri Heritage Village as a boutique hotel resort space 🏡🏘 Owned a museum cafe dining 🍽🍴 (with advanced booking 📞☎️📱for event etc.) & an upcoming Terramalai, a collection of traditional Malay houses 🏡🏘 from all over the states in Malaysia 🇲🇾 & will be based in Batu Rakit, Kuala Nerus district of Terengganu 😁

After bought each houses 🏡🏘, all will be dismantled & then rebuilt. All Terengganu old houses 🏡🏘 were built without a single nail 🔨, it’s using the traditional “tebuk pasak” aka peg & joint technique with the help from the professional skillful Malay carpenters aka “tukang rumah” in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language 😀

He 👨🏻‍💼emphasised few times in his sharing “We have to always go back to our own root. Culture is so beautiful & unique not to be shared to next generations 👶🏻👧🏻🧒🏻👦🏻🧑🏻

He 👨🏻‍💼has shared that he was struggled 😢☹️😔to communicate, convince the house owners 👬👬👬 to sell 💱💰their houses 🏡🏘 to him when he 1️⃣st started his heritage collection. Reason being he is a Chinese Peranakan, not a Muslim ❌☪️ He also proudly shared that he speaks fluent Terengganu Malay & this has helped a lot 😊

Once he 👨🏻‍💼has indentified ✅ the old house 🏠 that he is interested, he will slowly get to know the local house owner 1️⃣st. He is very persevere in his collection passion, he patiently kept visiting, communicating 🗣👤 Then, after knowing him better & appreciate his passion ❤️towards the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘, the house owner will sell their old house to him 💱💰 eventually

Guess what❓⁉️

There was an old house 🏠 that actually took him 15 years ✅🏡 after many many communications with the owner 🗣👤 Wow‼️😲 It’s named as Rumah Pulau Bahagia in Terrapuri Heritage Village & yet to be ready as guest villa currently ☺️

Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼has actually collected the old houses 🏡🏘 for 18 years (all being dismantled & stored at the backyard of his parents 👵🏻👴🏻house, on top of stones & covered with zinc to protect the chengal wood) before he bought this 4 ha land in 2005 which surrounding with islands 🏝🌴 & Setiu mangroves wetlands (Safe from tsunami 🌊 & chance to view fireflies 💫✨at night) in Kg. Mangkuk

He 👨🏻‍💼was discouraged 👎🏻by family members & friends 👫👭👬 at the beginning that he shoud invest in other investment & not ❌ in restoration project. Also not in Terengganu as the location 📍that he has chosen ✅😃

Restoration requires for a long time frame & huge sum of money 💰💵 to maintain. He actually 👨🏻‍💼sold off his luxury cars 🚗🚙 & properties before just to continue this restoration project. No any  bank loan/ Government grant has obtained becasue this is a non profit/ business investment 🏡🏘

His passion ❤️ in Terengganu old houses 🏡🏘restoration that motivates him to continue his journey till now, future & never end 😁

Question: Do you spot a smiling 😃 craving in below photo📸❓⁉️

Terengganu Traditional Malay Old Houses 🏡🏘

From her chat 🗣👤 with Mr Alex, she 👩🏻 has learnt that the balance ⚖️ is important in Malay belief, hence the height & wide of each house 🏡 is required to have good 👍🏻 ukiran rumah aka house 🏠 measurement as it also meant for good 👍🏻 feng sui. To Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼, life is a balance too, not just about making money 💰💵

The houses 🏡🏘 built with high legs to protect from flood & with aims to scard away the animals 🐘🦏🐅

The stairs (i.e. “tangga” in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language) to each Malay house 🏠 must with an odd numbers eg. 3️⃣, 5️⃣, 7️⃣ etc.

She 👩🏻 has learnt that there is meaning for Terengganu house 🏠 gate. She was told if you have bad intention (e.g. to rob the house owner) when you step 👣 into the house 🏠 , you may end up unable to see the house gate to exit then🚪

Generally, the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 are with beautiful 😍😍 wall craving, Islamic ☪️ influences, more to flora designs, some stupa are more towards Buddhism ⛩ No devil craving motives

There are 29 houses 🏡🏘 in this Terrapuri Heritage Village since 2012 i.e. 20 houses 🏡🏘 have been restored as guest villas & the remaining 9 houses serve as the resort reception, courtyard, spa, meeting room, library etc. ☺️

Actually he 👨🏻‍💼 has bought 💰💵💯 over houses 🏡🏘, only 29 units in this village while the rest serves as spare parts as most houses 🏡🏘 bought are only 70% able to be used due to extensively damaged & had rotting wood
