Nasi Dagang Pak Malau @ Langkawi, Kedah

Image
Pemandangan jelapang padi dari tempat Nasi Dagang Pak Malau, Langkawi, Kedah. Kajang Pak Malau kajang berlipat, Kajang hamba mengkuang layu, Dagang Pak Malau dagang bertempat, Dagang hamba musafir lalu... Begitulah bunyinya bait-bait pantun yang disampaikan oleh Damak (Allahyarham Nordin Ahmad) dalam filem Sri Mersing terbitan Cathay Keris. Namun, menurut sumber lagi, kata-kata seni ini telah dicipta oleh seorang seniman yang bernama Shariff Medan. Beliau sendiri yang telah melakonkan watak Pak Malau dalam filem tersebut dan beliaulah yang mereka pantun keramat tadi. Ketika melayari Internet untuk mencari tempat sarapan, nama "Nasi Dagang Pak Malau" muncul sebagai dapatan utama dalam senarai. Seumur hidup, saya hanya kenal Pak Malau dalam pantun dan sastera klasik Melayu. Jadi, bertuah benar saya dapat berkenalan dengan Pak Malau kedai makan ini. Advertisement: Agoda.com Mak

Jumu'ah Mubaarakah , everyone! In today's post, instead of delighting you with food matters, we'd like to serve you 'soul-ly sustenance' from The Qur'an that will quench your soul and help you become a better employee, mom, dad, husband, wife, son, daughter, neighbour - and the list goes on! Whatever title you hold, these 'delectable' pieces of advice or exemplary notes will help nurture the goodness in you by being kind, just, and compassionate towards yourself and the world around you. So, if you're looking for personal growth and development, you'd be glad to know that the Qur'an, as shown in the list of advice below, contains teachings emphasizing the importance of self-reflection, humility, and gratitude. Muslims who heed its teachings will lead him/herself to a more meaningful existence, one in which he/she can strive towards his/her full potential. Happy reflecting! Read on with this recent na'at  we've heard in the background.
