Love you guys!

Batik Production

Hi guys! I am in a full swing this weekend. I am still waiting for your reactions on my last post, Life’s Greatest Lesson. Someone was complaining to me the post was ‘quite heavy to take’. So, I am trying to lose it a little bit by posting pictures from my Kelantan trip. I went there with my family and my brother’s fiancé during one of the weekend in between my industrial training.

Kelantan is a state in the north-east of Malaysia. It is an Islamic state, which makes it quite different from the rest of the states. They don’t have night clubs or cinemas there, and even the performers will be wearing scarf or tudung when performing there. Even though 95% of the population are Malay, I am easily impressed when I saw a Chinese talking in Kelantanese dialect.

Sorry for the blurry images. The weather is too hot for me to go outside of the car to snap the pictures. Plus, I was in a moving car at that time. LOL

I suddenly feel like being in Indonesia where all the citizens neglecting their races talks in a unify language; Bahasa Indonesia. Apart from that, Kelantan is famous with its songket and batik, and I have the opportunity to see the making of batik!

You have to be skillful enough to hand painting the design of batik

Since every batik was handpainted, the design is unique only to one batik

It was then brushed to give textures on the batik

Final touch was done

Some dyes that were used

Then, it was washed and left to dry

And ta da! They are ready to be sold!

Sorry guys, I have to disable Intense Debate and reinstall JS-kit. Due to some errors that had occurred in Intense Debate and the slow response from the forum.

Nevertheless, I still have all comments when I used the Intense Debate. I will paste them all here.

The winner for First Commenter for this post is Darklight. Thank you for your understanding
