Went to Qlate for a trip with KKUT


Assalamualaikum and Salam Sejahtera...

We just came back from Kelantan trip, a very hot trip, rain during the night on the first day, all back with good tan body. The first place I would like to share is this interesting market for the second days  at Kelantan is Pasar Siti Khadijah..


Siti Khadijah Market (Pasar besar Siti Khadijah), as its name implies, is a local wet market. Its name after Prophet Muhammad's wife, whom is known for her entrepreneurial skill, as this market is mostly run by women. Apart from the usual fresh goodies like seafood, vegetables and wide variety of fruits, you can also find ready-to eat food like 'ayam percik', nasi ulam and a variety of noodle soups, all unique in flavors and taste of Kelantan, serves freshly for you. Not to forget to taste the local desserts like 'kuih muih' (cake sort of), tempeh and a glass of hot milk tea, which is the staple drink for Kelantanese and also "Nasi Kerabu"


Another interesting place I have visited is KB Mall...!!!!


And the third interesting place for the second day at Kelantan is Wakaf Che Yeh

Sebut sahaja pasar malam Wakaf Che Yeh, pasti terbayang pekikan peniaga menjual barangan dan urusan tawar menawar yang sememangnya menggamit suasana malam hari di sini. Malah ada yang mengatakan kalau datang ke Kelantan tidak sah kalau tidak pergi ke Pasar Malam Wakaf Che Yeh ini. Sebenarnya, apa yang menarik dan apa yang ada di pasar ini? Kawasan Wakaf  Che Yeh ini adalah pasar borong pada sebelah siang yang menjual barangan basah dan barangan asas, manakala pada waktu malam adalah berkonsep pasar malam yang menjual pelbagai jenis barangan...


Third Day a.k.a Last day trip at Qlate...

On the third day,, we  went Dewan Jubli Perak untuk Pameran Buku and Jualan..Dewan Jubli Perak Majlis Pembandaran Kota Bharu Bandaraya Islam (MPKB-BRI) adalah dewan serbaguna yang selalu dijadikan tempat pelbagai pameran seperti pameran komputer, pameran buku (yang pernah dianjurkan oleh Syarikat Muda Osman Sdn. Bhd) dan lain-lain pameran.

“The more intricate the pattern, the longer it’ll take for a weaver to complete the piece. An intricate piece of songket could take up to six months to weave, but these are usually made to order,” explained the owner of Cik Minah Songket And Batik, Mohammed Che Hussein. His family has been making and selling songket for four generations.
The 58-year-old businessman said he doesn’t know how to weave songket, but he knows how to ascertain the quality of the handwoven fabric. Mohammed also taught us some basic features of a songket.
“Just like the batik, a piece of songket consists of a kepala, badan and kaki,” said Mohammed as he spreads out a piece of songket to point out its three different components.
The kepala, which literally translates to “head”, is a wide panel of motifs that runs through the width of the fabric.
Another set of motifs run across the length of the fabric, and is known as the kaki, or “feet”. The rest of the fabric is known as the badan, or “body”.
Songket is distinguished by its metallic embossed motifs, and they are mostly inspired by flora and fauna.
“The most popular motifs are traditional ones like the triangular pucuk rebung, or bamboo shoots. Other motifs include buah ladu (rhombus), bunga tanjung (bakula flower), and sisik kelah (fish scales).
“A simple songket with regular repeated motifs takes two weeks to complete, but an intricate design will take much longer. The price of songket depends on the material used, and the difficulty of its designs,” said Mohammed who modestly added that he wears the more simply woven pieces. The price of songket ranges from RM200 for a simple design and up to RM15,000 for a custom-made songket with intricate designs. He said that the most expensive songket in his shop is RM7,000. This is because of the thread count which is higher than the average piece of songket.
