THE PARTING OF FORESKINS - Part 2

(Continued from Previous Post)
(WARNING: SOME MIGHT FIND THE FOLLOWING OFFENSIVE)
The boys will then walk gingerly to their bed, pinching their sarong at a strategic place to avoid rubbing the sarong against the wound. They will rest on the bed under a conical sarong (see picture below) for a few days with a purong (half a coconut shell) close at hand.
What is the purong for?
The Sarong Pyramid

Posted by Hello
Bersunnat is a rite of passage. You are on the way to become a man. Man gets erections. Erection is hell on a bandaged wound. Even when you are halfway to being a man and having half an erection, it is still painful. So, the age-old method of quelling erections is to bang the tempurong (coconut shell in Standard Malay) against your kneecap. Unusual you might say. But it works. I know some of you might suggest showing a picture of the boy's headmaster or something like that to get the same effect but in Terengganu, they had the tempurong. It dampened libidos for many generations. Overworked and tired married housewives might want to keep a few tempurongs handy to buy some time.

Back to the subject, if you have the appetite to eat, do not hope for chicken curries, masak lemak or the like. Until you recover from circumcision, you are only allowed plain rice with ikang panggang garang kunyit. That's grilled fish rubbed with turmeric and salt for flavour. No eggs, chicken or beef allowed. No spices. To make it less dry, you might occasionally be allowed ikang singgang-a Terengganu clear soup made with galangal, ginger, turmeric, shallot, onion and sour-slices (asam gelugur) . Even the fish is limited to ikang kembong (temenong to non-east coast people, horse mackerel to non-Malay speakers) lest you get fish-induced itches (and more erections).

So there you are, missing your favourite dishes but never your foreskin. You are glad you have left your kuluk (kulup) days behind. You are rewarded by the look of pride in your dad's face because you didn't cry or winced too much and you took it like a man that you are going to be. You are also rewarded by enough kain lepah barat to start a whole dikir barat group. Every visitor will bring at least one together with get well wishes and prayers. The symbiosis between circumcision and kain lepah barat is not clear to me. All theories welcomed.

The next morning is another test of patience and your threshold of pain. You have to change your bandage. You do this by sitting in a large bowl of tepid water that has been mixed with senang (powdered medicine) or medicinal oil. Then you pray that your bandage will come off easily or you wince and groan while gingerly removing the bandage. You also pray that the whole process will not affect the future alignment of your burung. You repeat this every morning until the wound heals and you can put on your pants again. You are told not to be so bwah (buas) like climbing trees or betang will happen to your batang.

It is so easy now. Just go to a doctor and you can wear your pants straight away and no pantang as far as the food is concerned.
Oh yes, I heard that, due to shrinkage, older adults are encouraged to re-circumcise. I heard that there are Mudins in Pasir Mas who can do treads (like auto tyres) of your choice. Maybe readers from Kelantan can confirm and elaborate?

Have a good weekend!

  • is betang the terengganu word for 'bentan' ?. during my time, i had to cover the little bird with a cup, when we took bath.

  • Oooeerrr.... after reading THAT, I'm not sure I have the heart to convince Tris to do this anymore!!!

    By Blogger DaisyBoo Blacksheep, at 7:31 AM  
  • Pretentious: Exactly. The cup was to keep it dry and make it heal faster.

    Daisyboo: Read the second last part. Send Tris to the doc and he won't be out of action for long. Or else he will have to ponder this:

  • WOW! greetings from the other side of the planet! I stumbled in here from my friend Kri's blog, and was instantly fascinated. You have a wonderful writing style, I winced for the boys, and found myself trying to pronounce some of your grammer lessons... unsuccessfully of course. I think I'd have to hear it to even start understanding it. On my one visit to the Hawiian Islands many years ago, I could NOT wrap my tongue or mind around their pronunciations, my brain insisted on trying to make sense of it using English grammer rules... lol. Thanks for a nice visit, I shall return! regards, Maggie

  • Changing the bandage. It was torture!!!

    The only consolation of bersunat was when I was given a ringgit or two by visitors, with the condition that they take a peek under the sarung... :)

  • The second circumsicion -recircumcise is done like a face lift. In fact , this technique of pulling the drooping skin for better uprightness technique was done by malaysian mudin long before the plastic surgery in the west introduced the face lift. The excess skin ( due to the shrinkage of muscle with age) is cut off but it has two options. Either to sew it back for maximum tension or to leave it with jagged scar for friction.It sure help where the volume of tissue which the blood is to fill is less and no need for the closing of the exit artery valve. It can be done by simple cosmetic surgey of the use of Taraclamp , perhaps of the M or S size Taraclamp and not the last L or XL size.

  • Arwah abah lari keluar dari hospital sebab aku menjerit kuat sangat waktu nak bukak bandage. Salah depa jugak, tak letak minyak kelapa. hehe...memang terror, satu hospital dengar jeritanku

  • Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
    You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
