Di Bawoh Rang Ikang Kering
Random Ramblings of A Retired Retainer


Wednesday, October 06, 2010
Now that the dust and cobwebs of this abandoned blog are cleared, let us begin where we left off.
First, congratulations to PESAT for getting a 4 million ringgit headquarters. I am not a member yet (waiting patiently for a sponsor) but I am happy for all my Terengganu friends who are members of the association.

If Pok Long Mok Aji Kiah were alive today, I would suggest that Hj. Ramlang (Presideng PESAT) invite this violinist to gesek his violin at the opening ceremony. Pok Long might not be as good as Idris Sardi but to the Geng Kayu hanging out in the shadows of Pok Long's house in front of Mesjid Putih, he gesek a mean violin without grating any of our teeth.

By now, non-Terengganu speakers would have guessed the meaning of gesek. Gesek is deliberate and premeditated. Sessek is accidental. Choose the appropriate word when you have a mishap parking your vehicle in crowded places like Pasar Kedai Payang or Batu Nang. In the event that you chose the wrong word and got hit by the wrong end of a walking stick or an umbrella and you find your nose or your face bruised, you might want to lesek the sore part with an appropriate ointment or oil like Minyok Pok Ali Yunang.

Now, you can use gesek, sessek and lesek in your own sentences. Go on.

  • Pokku,

    Ese nak cubo loghat Nogori
    Gesek belo biar semonggah
    Kok podih tolingo maun tak
    Budak kocik makan nasi lecek
    Orang tuo menumbuk gobek
    Anak daro poie koderek
    Cari laki kojo kontrek
    Omak montuo tojengkek jengkek
    Kampong corok jauh kek

    I hope it can augment the loghat Ganu.
