  • Another artist participating in B&W whom we've been exhibiting fairly regularly is Haris Rashid. Charcoal may not be a medium that this young artist uses in his art, but he accepted our challenge, and he's certainly delivered, as evidenced in the two works included in the exhibition.

  • Mindfulness 
Senaman Tua (Ancient Malay Exercise) aka Yoga Melayu has an objective and to persue this journey, it begins from an origin. Breathing too has an origin; for example by concentrating focus in the navel. The same thing applies in performing Senaman Tua exercises when sitting, lying down, hand dances. Standing and striding; there is a clear objective when it starts from the base. As the old Malay saying goes, you will reach your goal if you know your origins.

  • WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST LESSON IN 2018?
.
Mine was “Kecil Tapak Tangan, Nyiru Kami Tadahkan”. Growing up being lectured the meaning of this idiom was showing utmost gratitude upon receiving a gift (while hoping for more hehe), i was quite shock when i heard a different side of this proverb
.
Nyiru, a tool in the old days used to winnow / toss a grain / rice to separate it from chaff. Why Nyiru is used and not bigger tool like basket or tempayan ? That will show bigger gratitude and wanting for much much more
.
I was told by someone respectful, the wisdom behind this proverb that has been left far behind is; whenever you receive a gift, always remember to winnow (tampi) it, separate the bad one from the good one, take the good one, don’t simply take things as a whole for your own goodness
.

It triggers me. Is this applicable in everything? Upon receiving material gift, knowledge, or perhaps responsibility ? Who knows their intention anyway 😁
.
And how many things we knew and probably we knew it wrong all this time ?

  • *Ayam pulang ke lesung juga*
(Kembali ke tempat punca rezeki) .
.
Di mana ada rezeki
di situ dikerumuni
mendapat untung
meraih laba
untuk menjadi kaya
------------------- .
.*The hen will surely return to the pestle and mortar*
(to return to the source of sustenance)

Wherever there are blessings of sustenance
that's where all will flock
seeking benefit to draw 
to enrich one self (100 Malay Proverbs, Siti Zainon Ismail)

  • *Bagai lelayang putus tali*
(Hilang tempat bergantung)

Tiada tempat pergantungan
setelah ditinggal pergi
hidup terawang
terlontar ke sana sini
----------------------
.
. *Like a kite that's lost its string*
(Loss of something to rely on)

There is nowhere, nothing to hold onto
after being abandoned
one is drifting through life
directionless (100 Malay Proverbs, Siti Zainon Ismail)

  • Kiambang a.k.a. duckweed. As the saying in Melayu goes, “biduk lalu, kiambang bertaut,” trans. after the boat passes, the duckweed will float to each other and connect again, meaning disagreements between two parties (usually family or blood relations) will pass and the relationship will be mended again.
