Although it is Saturday, we still have classes that need to be replaced. Luckily it was not that packed as I finished the class and lecture before noon. Then with Warid, I rushed to the National Museum as from the pamphlet that I have, it tells that there were silat performances in conjunction with the traditional weapon exhibition.
I felt fortunate when I saw one of the senior masters of Silat Seni Gayong Malaysia, Cikgu Sazali was there as well. A group of unrecognisable taikos were talking to him. Able to greet to him just for a few seconds, Insyaallah there will be the next meeting for us. It has been quite a number of years since the last time I met him. When I was in secondary school, we used to invite him to the silat courses that were organised.
Anak Gayong from PLKU did their performances in the event. They showed bunga tanjung movements, lompatan, some kuncian and pukulan as well as pentas hidup using Malay traditional weapons such as parang, keris and tombak. There were also other performances from others such as the dances and the ice carving demonstration.
Sundang Ghaib (?). The pic was taken from Ayah Su’s
When I got back and surf the net, Ayah Su has already posted the pictures that he took at Melawi beach 10 years ago. Such a coincidence.. I do not believe in coincidence though.. huhuhu. The picture contains a lot of memories. We were training some movement with Cikgu Sazali and Pak Ngah Izahar.
