REVIEW: CANDLE LIGHT DINNER AT BORA OMBAK, AMPANG, SELANGOR, MALAYSIA


Assalamualaikum and Hi!

That was a pretty happy moment when you're invited for a very special dinner to somewhere romantic dining place. Either you're a woman or a man, you will feel very appreciated with celebration and surprise made by your partner. The feeling was there, when you stepped into the Bora Ombak located at Ampang, Selangor. For the full address i will add here later on the last paragraph. Don't worry and keep reading this first.

I just want to express my feeling actually. Saya wanita terbahagia masa kini. Alah, itu lagu BCL la. (Nyanyi ala-ala BCL gitu). Wahh mentang-mentang gi dinner ala-ala western, i tertulis omputih jap. Nak amik feeling. Don't be mad at me ya. Actually i planned all this. I just want to surprise him since he's working on his birthday date, 3rd April, so he said we'll be going out on Saturday which can be our Saturdate to celebrate his birthday. Dia tak tahu yang i dah booking, make payment for reservation awal-awal for this. He thought it's only going out for watching movie, dinner for two, as usual.

Mula-mula ikut je rentak dia nak bawak pergi mana. As we went out earlier on that day, around 4p.m so we went to QUILL CITY MALL first. Plan nya nak tengok movie. But i stopped him from purchasing any movie tickets since i don't like all the movies showed at that time. So he decided to bring me to Secret Recipe! I said i didn't want cake yet. "Just get me this" (i'm showing something like the tomato soup) on the menu list, I just forgot what that name is and he chose the Caesar Salad  and for the drink we just shared, selalu share sebab perut saya mudah kembung minum air banyak-banyak. We just don't want to eat something heavy here since we planned to go dinner out of this mall.

I said stop me at the Berjaya Times Square, since i want to get the cake for him, for the celebration that night. Malas nak beli di Secret Recipe tadi nak beli yang slices tak padan, nak beli yang besar kang terbungkam pulak makan. So i just decided to get not too big and not too small cake, so that if tak habis pun i boleh tinggalkan untuk pekerja-pekerja at BORA OMBAK, jadi tak membazir. I asked him to choose the cake, and he chose the chocolate hazelnut cake at the one of the bakery shop in Berjaya Times Square. For the cake not so surprise la, sebab dia sendiri yang pilih, sekali ngan lilin-lilin dia pilih -,- So good of you!


Lepas Solat Maghrib, malam tiba, cakap-cakap atas kereta. As usual he asked me where we wanted to eat. I said let's waze, sebab i nak explain panjang-panjang to him pun i don't know the route in KL....So just waze the location. Seperti biasa i juga ambil his phone and start wazing the place "BORA OMBAK" while he's driving. Taip itu je dah keluar route mana nak pilih ada yang 33 miles, ada yang 36 miles. "Pilih je lah mana-mana pun asalkan sampai." Katanya. I tengok jam, masih awal kata i dalam hati. Since i dah rancang dengan Bora Ombak sampai around 8.45 P.M. But it's ok lah, we reached there on time.


Mula-mula sampai, dia kata, wahh lawa jugak ye Bora Ombak ni. Ye lah tengok la siapa yang pilih, Kakpi kan...Hahaha. Sambil ketawa berdehek-dehek. Kakpi ni orangnya kalau tak lucu pun ketawa camtu. We parked the car and turun kereta and he brought the cake along. I thought Bora Ombak ni ada cawangan di Bali, tapi google takde pulak cakap. Haha. Mungkin konsepnya bertemakan gabungan Asli Malaysia dan Bali. Konsep Bali memang terlihat la, sebab masuk pintu gerbangnya pun dah tahu konsep pintu kecik macamtu dan juga decoration dalamnya ala-ala Bali gitu ada pohon bunga kemboja.

So here we go! Jom kita masuk dulu ke dalam cerita seterusnya. The stories, the actions, the sceneries.














I was so excited so i took pictures of all views inside the place. The sceneries at night was so beautiful. Just like what i'd imagined when i googled and viewed the post from some bloggers who had been here before.

So once we stepped into the place, i macam wahhhhhh, lawanya, kata dalam hati je la. Si dia pun tergamam je tengok. Since we didn't know where was our table, we couldn't simply sit. Fortunately less than 5 minutes, one of the Bora Ombak team came greeting us, like he knew that i....Shafifi..i think he was Mr.Taufiq or Misca, i'm not sure, sorry lupa pulak nak berkenalan even thru whatsapp pun i tak tahu i deal dengan siapa. MashaAllah, fifi, fifi. What's wrong with you. Haha. Sigh. Then he showed and brought us to our table which i'd booked earlier. I just gave the cake to him cuz i knew he knew what to do with it. Hahaha. Sekali lagi expectation i betul. Macam i dah discuss dengan Team Bora Ombak, they prepared everything. Servisnya puas hati la. Waiter and waitress nya very friendly, nak minta fotokan pun mudah, selalu senyum, tak perlu suruh-suruh, kadang-kadang diorang sendiri akan tahu apa yang perlu diorang buat untuk surprise kan someone's special. Jadi i tak perlu ajar banyak. Good job Bora Ombak!


The candle and white flowers! The good combination for the romantic night. Suitable with the lighting behind. Rasa macam special sangat, when we sat, a bali style of kebaya waitress came toward us. Kita duduk, dia bukakan napkin and letak on our lap. Dia nyalakan lilin juga. The service is really tip top. Similar to 4 or 5 Star Hotel i guess. 


The waitress serve us with the appetizer first. Mushroom Soup and Garlic bread. We ate all. Memang dah lapar kan. The sparkling water and mocktail were there too!


Right 5-10 minutes after we finished the appetizer, the waitress came again with the main course. Here what we were waiting for. The steak was really yummeh. Lembut and juicy dagingnya. We chose lamb instead of beef or chicken. Sayurnya juga segar as well as the blackpepper sauce, very nice! I enjoyed eating this with my dear one on his special day.


"Sepatutnya birthday man la difoto banyak-banyak, ini dia pulak yang rajin amik foto kita, suruh posing gitu gini. I nak makan dulu...Please please..." Kata kakpi kepadanya. 


The Banana for dessert. Omaigod, i was so fallin in love with this! I masih dapat rasakan di lidah, how it tasted. I nak try to make this at home. Homemade lebih banyak boleh makan. Pisang tu pisang pejal yang direbus, bukan pisang lembik-lembik tu. Jadi just nice la dimakan, not too lembik, not too pejal, tambah pula rasa honey/marple syrup on it....dan dilapik dengan daun pisang. Daun pudina, Vanilla ice cream dan taburan kelapa goreng as decorations, menambahkan lagi rasa keunikannya tersendiri! I love it i love it i love it! Termimpi-mimpi i jadinya.


He loved this too!


Then, Bora Ombak team came with the cake. I pun terkejut sama, tiba-tiba nyanyi dari jauh and datang, letakkan slow-slow cake and diorang pasang candle for the Chocolate Hazelnut Cake! Me and his favourite actually. But we were really full with the 3 course meals before. We together sang the birthday song with the musicians and he blew the candles. I minta dia niat and doa yang baik-baik supaya yang baik-baik sentiasa datang kepada kita. I potong kek sama-sama dengan dia, and we ate little only dengan alasan full. Eh bukan alasan juga, tapi memang dah full sangat-sangat. Selebihnya i pesan kat waiter di situ untuk they all makan la!

"Prayer is not asking. It is the longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without heart."

Masa diorang bawak cake tu, the Musicians came to us. Nyanyi-nyanyi birthday song. I pun nyanyi sama. Actually after that i nak request lagu Everyday I Love You! Tapi rasa segan. Hahaha, tetiba je segan...Then next, diorang nyanyi lagu Tercipta Untukku. Ya lah sesuai juga kan. As long as ia kena dengan mood, i layankan saja. Jadi for you, i dedicated this song ok! Then dia pulak yang request lagu from the musicians "DOA BUAT KEKASIH". One of his favourite Malay song. I sengih-sengih je, malu jugak kan, orang nyanyi-nyanyi lagu live khusus untuk kitorang berdua.

Ok here are some details for you to know about the place!


This place opens everyday from 5P.M to 11P.M. It's good for you untuk bawak your wife, husband, mama, papa, and anak-anak. Ianya selalu dikunjungi artis juga. So weolls yang tak artis pun dialu-alukan datang juga, anda apa tunggu lagi? I datang masa weekend, memang banyak juga orang! Ada event jugak dalam dewan, i'm not sure nikah ke apa. Ramai yang celebrate birthday on that day. Ada yang berkeluarga, ada yang couple. Jadi you better book first before coming here.



And for the Candlelight Dinner Package like what we had, last year punya price berbeza dengan this year punya.







They got 2 categories (The latest prices):



1st Package:

RM 200+ net per couple (Not include GST)

3 course western
Appetizer, Main Course (Lamb Steak, Beef Steak and Chicken Chop) and Dessert

RM 300+ net per couple (Not include GST)
4 course western
Mushroom Soup, Salad, Main Course (Lamb Steak, Beef Steak and Chicken Chop) and Dessert

I think it's not so expensive, since layanan pun taraf 5 star. Bermula dengan cara they greet us, the decorations, they serve the good meals, dengan live band datang nyanyi depan kita, dengan cara diorang surprise kita, dan yang penting dengan keramahan team mereka. Nak tempat romantik for dining? This is the place. Believe me, your family, your wife or your gf will feel special when you bringing them here.







Not only for family dining or candlelight dinner (anniversary, birthday, wedding proposal or just-a-special date), Bora Ombak juga popular dengan lokasi resepsi ala Bali bagi bakal-bakal pengantin sekalian. Berdasarkan what i read thru blogs, this place every weekend penuh dengan wedding. Memang masa i survey on Facebook, dah ramai yang buat the garden wedding concept here. Ada pakej tau for 600pax(day wedding) and 1000pax(night wedding). Memang kena dengan tema dan keinginan pengantin zaman moden bukan sekadar jimat, ianya FREE PELAMIN, RED CARPET, PA SYSTEM, CAKE, HOTEL ROOM and MANY MORE. Wahhh. For the cost per head, you can refer to the poster abover. It's really worth. For further informations or to get the perfect quotation  for your wedding reception, better you all confirmkan balik with BORA OMBAK thru calls or email sebab i takut ada perubahan harga ke apa. Kakpi nak buat wedding reception sini nanti pun boleh. Takpe, at least kita dah kenal with whom we must meet if ada apa-apa nak buat sini, not only wedding, nak launch product ke, high tea ke, apa-apa je la, semua boleh sebab di sini ada hall, ada stage, boleh muat 600-700 people :)



Bak kata mereka, "Let's Make a date with Ambience @BoraOmbak, where the twinkling lights catches your eye bringing that feel of Tranquility' The Ambience, The Food & The Music in Reminiscence of Bali."



We left the place with all the good memories! Here it is, the cafe and wedding place. Bali in Malaysia.

Dia cakap,
"I thought it's only the simple celebration, dinner for two. But it's more than that. Awak sediakan semua ni eh? Macamna awak arrange, bila? Anyway Thank you for the night." Sambil matanya macam sedang mengupas bawang, terutamanya bawang merah. Hahaha.

I cakap,
"Sesama. Bila-bila je la, ha'a kita book awal-awal to surprise you. Make sure next dinner you arrange for me, something that will be more special than just now." Kemudian I Sengeh-sengeh malu-malu ketawa berdehek-dehek seperti biasa.

Kasihilah Musuhmu.


Assalamualaikum and Hi!


And at last Kakpi got time to write here again. Hihi, nak jadi blogger yang aktif jari jemari untuk tulis itu ini, mestilah kena curi masa walaupun sekejap. So the topic for today is "KASIHILAH MUSUHMU"

You got enemies?

Ada yang kata, 

"Aku memaafkanmu, tapi aku tak akan pernah melupakan apa yang kau buat terhadapku." 

Dengan kata lain, memaafkan tapi tak melupakan.

Itu tetap bermusuh namanya. Kata pepatah, lain di mulut, lain di hati. Bahaya juga macamni. Sakit hati pasti masih ada terpalit walaupun sedikit makanya tak boleh melupakan 100%. Tapi prinsip maaf memaafkan ini berbeza bagi setiap manusia. Tergantung atas nilai budi dan bicara orang tu sendiri la. Ada yang perlu waktu, ada yang sekejap saja, bermaafan kembali, ada yang buat tak tahu je, bagi dia maaf tak maaf sama saja. Macam takde feel je orang macamni. Tak boleh kata orang yang memaafkan tapi tak melupakan ini tak ikhlas, kerana, ikhlas tak ikhlas itu, hanya Tuhan saja yang berhak pertimbangkan. Kita tak dapat tilik hati dan naluri orang tu macamana, apa yang otak dia fikir, apa hati dia rasa. Namun kalau orang menyakitkan hati kita, apa yang kita rasa? Sakit? Haaa macamtulah orang itu rasa kalau disakitkan hatinya! Konsep maaf tapi tak melupakan ini sesuai sangat bagi yang bersifat tak mahu bergaduh dan teruskan persengketaan, mungkin setelah memaafkan, masing-masing membuat hala tuju? Ataupun ada juga, maaf dalam hati, terus tinggal macamtu saja, malas nak ambil tahu lagi. Dah sakit hati lah katakan. Namun, begitu, diharap bila memaafkan seseorang, terus lupakanlah sebarang persengkataan yang berlaku sebelumnya dan berteman seperti sediakala.

Ada yang memaafkan dan melupakan terus apa yang terjadi sesama sendiri. Yang lepas biarlah lepas. Orang kata yang lepas jangan dikenang, mulakan hidup baru dan buka muka buku baru! Jangan salah faham, bukan suruh bukak FACEBOOK ACCOUNT baru :p Maksudnya kalau boleh jangan ungkit langsung apa yang berlaku masa lepas. Kalau ungkit pastila sakit hati sendiri.

Janganla pasal kawan curi pensil, pemadam, alat tulis zaman sekolah kata aku maafkan kau tapi aku takkan lupakan. Haha, ini lawak namanya. Bagi je la kira sedekah untuk kawan tu, jangan nak bermusuh pulak. Jumpa 20 tahun lepas kejadian, tengok-tengok si pencuri pensil tu lebih berjaya dari awak, haaa, kanggg awak jugak yang untung dapat kawan berjaya, boleh tumpang senang, ye dakkk? Ni hal-hal kecik awak nak anggap macam musuh, malu sendiri nanti.

Kalau kes pakwe tinggal awak pun, chill je lah baby, pakwe baru menanti! Takyah nak terkenang-kenang sangat kan, lebih baik bila jumpa pun pura-pura tak kenal. Entah-entah dia yang jeles tengok awak dengan pakwe baru yang lebih kacak dan berjaya. Ok ni tak funny. Kakpi rasa uolls pasti sakit hati bila ditinggalkan, kan? Tak kira la, perempuan ke lelaki ke, kalau dah sayang puji melayang, kalau dan putus, Facebook jadi tempat lempar kejian. Ini tak bagus. Tak kira lah sapa buat hal pun, tak payah nak sebar-sebar sangat, kalau nak meluah pun, luah kepada kenalan terdekat atau keluarga sahaja. Tak perlu sampai satu dunia tahu awak dan bekas pasangan bermusuh. Sapa buat hal, pasti Tuhan hukum, jangan risau, Tuhan Maha Adil. Haa pepatah aku maafkan tapi tak dapat lupakan ni banyak pasangan-pasangan kekasih up status bila dah putus. Ye la kan, kalau tak pakwe cari pasal ada girlpren lain, yang makwe nya ada boypren lain. Hal-hal ni macam dah hari-hari berlaku dalam dunia. Dah fedup dengar, dari rakyat jelata sampai ke bangsawan pun ada kes-kes putus cinta ni. Wakakakaka. Wake up la darlings, it's time for you to have a real life, cari pasangan yang baik hati, yang sudi kawin dengan awak terus, takdelah sampai awak perlu up status, aku maafkan tapi aku tak lupakan bila dah putus.

Spesies kawan makan kawan pun boleh dianggap musuh. Tapi, untuk orang yang baik hatinya, jarang dia menganggap seseorang musuh. Paling tidak, sakit hatinya itu terubat dengan kegiatan-kegiatan yang menyenangkan dalam kehidupannya namun yang memusuhinya itu pula makin sakit hati. Betul pepatah Mat Salleh, kill them with success and bury them with a smile.

Musuh ni macam bayang-bayang yang kejar kita, makin kita lari, makin dia kejar. Tak tahu dia nak apa, apa yang dia tak puas hati dengan tetap mengejar. Kita dah lari jauh-jauh masih bercerita tentang kita. Yang baik-baik takda, semua yang burok-burok, tambah pulak spesies musuh yang tokok tambah cerita, makin hangin sepoi-sepoi bahasa la puan, cik, encik kepochi buat ketupat. Sorang tukang karut, sorang penglipurlara, sorang lagi jaguh main wayang di layar perak. Apa yang kau nak, haaa wahai musuh? LOL.

Kadang-kadang musuh ni takut dengan bayang-bayang sendiri, bahana dan akibat perbuatannya sendiri. Sorang nak backup diri, sorang memang kerja pelagakan orang, sorang lagi pura-pura daif tak tahu apa-apa tapi dialah dalang kepada segalanya. Nauzubillahminzalik. Wahai Tuhan semesta Alam, kami pinta dan mohon setulus hati jauhilah kami dengan manusia sebegini. Manusia yang depannya baik, dan belakangnya bertopeng. 

Musuh ni ke mana dia pergi, menjaja kisah manusia yang dimusuhinya. Yang dimusuhinya tak berbuat apa-apa tapi dia tetap mengkeji menghina menyebar berita. Musuh ini kadangkala terlihat ganjil, aneh dan pelik dengan sifat dan kelakuan yang serba tak kena. Cuba tengok musuh-musuh anda bila update status di FACEBOOK, kalau tak mengumpat pasal orang, pasti menyindir, kalau tak menyindir, pasti status doa seolah-olah dialah jejaka/gadis paling baik semesta alam, tapi dalam doa itu tetap ada sindiran.

Redha je la. Sedangkan kucing dengan tikus pun bermusuh, inikan pula manusia.

Negara Malaysia ada musuh tak? Rakyatnya sendiri terhadap kezaliman pemerintahnya/pemimpinnya. Wakakakaka. Silap-silap masin mulut iolls suruh rakyat Malaysia keluar dari Malaysia kalau dah tak suka negara ni. YES, kita keluar dari Malaysia, sama-sama, at least "KRONI-KRONI GST" boleh cas not only GST, another Tax and laksanakanla hukum-hukum ekonomi lain yang boleh membangunkan negara buat bangla, pakistani, cina dari Tanah Besar China, Cambodian, Myanmar... Tapi Kakpi yakin Tun M pasti berbuat sesuatu untuk menyelamatkan MALAYSIA dari bala bencana ekonomi! Ni semua permainan politicians la, bukan permainan iolls. Jadi let's sleep, cuz iolls dah siap ceramah :) 

Wassalam dari Kakpi yang telah memaafkan segala kesalahan awak-awak semua, mana tahu dah tak lama hidup ke, kita tak tahu ajal kita kan. Tambah-tambah pulak kalau musuh doakan kita mati cepat dibawa arus sungai laju dan menyamai kita dengan pepatah biarkan si luncai terjun dengan labu-labunya, kami maafkan. Berharap tanaman pesaka labu dapat menolong kami dalam kesusahan, kerana inilah makanan zaman nenek moyang kita. Maafkan ya, seandainya kita tak bersua lagi sebab cara saya, MAAF TAPI TAK MELUPAKAN.

Haha, Kakpi takde musuhla. Yang memusuhi tak tahu lerrr pulak. Takpelah, kita sama-sama mengasihani musuh ye, supaya mereka dah malu dah nak bermusuh bagai dengan kita. Kasih dengan cara doakan musuh anda semua, biar Tuhan alihkan dan pindahkan supaya mereka tak busuk hati sangat nak bermusuh bagai. Tak baik tauuu musuh-musuh, Tuhan marah.



"Orang cakap, let bygones be bygones, tapi Kakpi cakap, sejarah perlu dikenang, supaya tak berulang. Kalau masih berulang diri sendiri yang bodoh, jangan salahkan musuh. Itulah sebab Kakpi amalkan prinsip, MEMAAFKAN TAPI TAK MELUPAKAN supaya tahu yang mana sejarah lalu dan yang mana bakal melakar sejarah."

Wanita Perokok


Assalamualaikum and Hi.

Saya rasa sudah lama saya tidak menulis di ruangan ini. Rindu betul. Berdekad? Ish mana ada. Tak ada lah selama itu. Tapi yang penting rasa rindu untuk menulis tetap ada dalam diri ini. Blog pun rasa terabai bila tuannya tidak menghiraukan, meluangkan waktu dan sisa-sisa hari yang kian tertumpu dengan pelbagai kerja dan tugasan. Memang tak boleh kata tak ada masa, sebab masa sendiri itu subjektif pemahamannya. Masa tetap berputar, itu tandanya masa itu wujud, cuma tergantung atas diri sendiri bagaimana kita mengatur masa-masa yang ada. Eh sudah-sudah lah pasal masa, we straight to the main subject, dengan isu utama hari ini, "Wanita Perokok".

Ada di antara teman wanita, ibu, kakak, saudara-mara perempuan, sahabat perempuan, ataupun mana-mana wanita yang anda kenal merupakan seorang perokok, malah menjadi perokok tegar untuk abad ini? Maksud saya, bukan sekadar duduk di atas buaian getah jaring-jaring di bawah pohon kelapa sambil menggulung rokok daun, tapi ini, rokok betul-betul rokok, sama ada Duhill, Gudang Garam, Djarum Black atau Sampoerna A Mild.

Kalau di negara-negara jiran kita sering saja saya terjumpa watak sedimikian, di airport, di restaurant, international cafe, gadis dan wanita perokok sedemikian, namun pada pemerhatian saya dua-tiga tahun ini saja baru merebak penyakit merokok di kalangan gadis dan wanita kita di Malaysia. Segan juga saya lihat, kiri kanan, mereka ambil sebatang rokok, nyalakan pemetik api, lalu menghembus asap rokok ke segenap ruang...Kalau sudah berpewatakan seperti gaya hipster tidak mengapa, cocok dengan rupa, namun ada juga wanita yang manis bertudung, MEROKOK, persis gaya seorang lelaki kacak merokok. Hak masing-masing. Namun, agak tidak sesuai pada tatapan mata saja. Kalau dulu-dulu hanya gadis kelab malam, gadis-gadis liar yang terjebak dengan masalah sosial atau nenek-nenek yang tinggal di kampung kebiasaannya kita jumpa yang merokok, sekarang gadis normal berpewatakan manis pun sudah pandai merokok.

Tepuk dada tanya selera, itu semua pilihan anda. Penyakit anda, tubuh badan anda, kegiatan anda, budaya anda. Yang nak berubah, Alhamdulillah. Sebaiknya berhentilah merokok, sebelum jantung menghitam, sebelum terjadinya kanser mulut dan sebagainya, tak kira jantina lelaki dan wanita! Anda mampu merubahnya!


"A bad habit never been easy to disappear. It's an undo-it-yourself project. Goodluck people! Stop smoking, and let's live happily without cigarettes. Jangan ikut kawan, ikut teman, ikut lifestyle yang kononnya tanpa rokok tak chill lah friend, no no no. Don't you ever pretend liking the food which your taste buds cannot handle"

Fifi.
Till Then,
Assalamualaikum.

Masjid Kerisik - Krue Se Mosque


Hari ini saya bawa anda meneroka suatu tempat yang saya rasakan ia sangat menarik. Menarik bagi saya tidak tentu pada anda pun sama. Tapi sekadar renungan dan pengetahuan bersama. Kenalilah ini ialah Masjid Kerisik or also known as Krue Se Mosque. Ini foto-foto lama, but it's ok as long as you guys get a lot sof benefial stories from this article! Uhurmmm, i just copy and paste eh, sebab i'm not an expert to explain panjang lebar for the historical subjects, not like my princess sister! :p

________________________________________________________________


Kerisik or Krue Se mosque now situated at Village No. 3, Tanyong luloh sub-district, Muang district, Patani province, Thailand south, lie 6 kilometers to the south of present day Muang Patani or Patani city. Masjid Kerisek had been registered as an archaeological remain  on February 25, 1935 by Art Department of Thailand , first renovated in 1957, second renovated in 1982 and the last renovated  on July 1, 2004 after the bloody  extra judicial killing of  32 secessionists in the mosque by the Thai army on February 28, 2004 , Keresik mosque then,  become among the first and primary focus of attention  from journalists, academics, scholars and fact finders all over the world on assimilation issue, discrimination  practice and the primary cause of long lasting conflict between  Muslim Malay of Patani and the Thai government.
Archaeological Investigation of Patani History By David J Welch & Judth  R macNeilll/
Map Modify by Patani River to Locate Kerisek mosque (Red)and Lim Ko Niew Cemetary(Blue)

Back Ground
Kerisik mosqe was the first mosque of the Kingdom of Patani and of the whole Southeast Asia that built in the Middle East style.  It was called 'Masjid Pintu Gerbang' and later changed to be the same name with the location. It stood in front of the old palace gate on the west.

in this picture Dome is in construction work : more detail at  Prof. Kronchai Hatta,
 Masjid Kerisek in the History of Patani, Thai language, page 30-31, PSU

From archaeological remains, it might have built in 1514 during the reign of Sultan Ismail Shah and completed in the reign of Sultan Muzzafar Shah. There were several times of renovation and the biggest renovation was during the reign of Queen Hijau (1584-1616), The Chinese builder(Lim To Kiam) was commissioned to enlarge the mosque and added more interior decorations. Being the royal mosque, it was destroyed several times by  wars (wars with neighbouring kingdoms likePalembang(Indonesia) and Ayutthaya(Thailand)).
Front side of kerisek mosque
After each war, the renovation took placed, unfortunately it had never finished. In 1786, Siammade an attack and took control over Patani. The order from Siamese king to sack every things in front after winning the war were fulfilled by his general and his commanders. This Patani-Siamese war  had brought an  end to Patani as a flourish and civilized kingdom. Most of the palaces and important buildings were destroyed and burnt to the ground. Few Sultans of Patani in later times (under the Siamese suzerainty) have put their efforts to re-establish the Patani old capital, but never succeeded. The Patani new town(present town) was erected  in 1832 and the Kerisek  Mosquewas left behind since then.

Invention Story
When  times gone by,  the  story of legendary Kerisek mosque had been adopted by Chinese or in Chinese favor  in order to rouse up the superiority of Chinese believed and culture over the local existing  Muslim Malay political  and economical weakness,  targeted at  graving  down the glamour of  Patani historic past manage by Siamese and later by Thai political and cultural assimilation policy which become one of the most important mechanical solution tool to root out  the Pataniconflict or Patani unrest  and centuries  long rebellion in Thailand south.
New Lim Ko Niew Cemetary

“ Because of Lim Ko Niew curse that Kerisek mosque uncompleted built” this invented LimToh Kian and Lim Ko Niew myth by Chinese and Thai Buddhist in accordance with their faith  had brought the history of Kerisek mosque spread far and wide to the foreign countries on the purpose of  tourists  attraction . This campaign was successfully made by Tourist Authority of Thailand which later attract huge visitors  of Chinese origin from MalaysiaSingapore andIndonesia. These visitors come and visit not the mosque but Lim Ko Niew cemetery, 500 meters to the west of the mosque, the new location of Lim Ko Niew grave proof successful and able to convince more  people to believed in this semi-religious  myth. 

The Original Location
The original place of Lim Ko Niew grave  lie about 1.5 Km. to the north of the present day location in Kampong Tanyong Luloh, the location of original grave is about 500 meters distance from the sea coast(after hundred years of coastal erosion).The new generations especially Chinese, Thai  and Muslim Malay of Patani never known about the original grave location  and the truth story of Lim Ko Niew, they just believed that the present location  is its original place.

The Original Cemetary  of Lim Ko Niew and chinese residence- Few people know

The Inter-Faith Sentiment
How much  popular Lim Ko Niew  new shrine was, more upset and uneasy for the Muslim Malay of Patani sentiment were, because of the reason that their faith and believed being indirectly attack by the Chinese myth and some groups of the local Muslim Malay of Patani believed that their religion had  already been abused and discriminated by the Lim Ko Niew herself, hence it’s time to make a challenge to the new invented faith, finally  in 1987 Muslim Malay of Patani organized the demonstration at Kerisek mosque asking for returning  the mosque to its former status, a place of  worship not a place for tourists, stop the invented Lim ko Niew Goddess myth campaign created by Chinese and Thai authority, speak the truth and rationalized the myth. 

The demonstrators talking about the unjust invented myth which in turn destroyed the good relation between the  two ethnic groups and at the end,  the demonstration nearly turn to violence  when the high ranking  police officer try to infiltrate to the demonstration crowds and suddenly identified by the demonstrators, he was arrested  and brought  on the stage with several places on his body wounded after which the demonstration leaders were arrested and put into Bangkok prisons. This demonstration lasted for 3 years called by the local Muslim Malay as “Kerisek demonstration” lead by Bormor Ding, a Muslim Malay of Patani, a former Thai government health officer .

The  April 28, 2004
Kerisik  mosque, again come to the stage of attention when Islamic secessionists launched well-planned and almost simultaneous pre-dawn attacks on 11 government locations and security checkpoints in Patani, Yala and Songkhla provinces in Thailand south. 0n April 28, 2004. Thai authorities reported that 107 insurgents and five members of the security forces had been killed. 32 secessionists were shot down in the Krisek mosque after 8 hours of battling with the police who surrounded all side of the mosque. These were the bloodiest clashes since a new wave of separatist seccessionist was launched in Thailand’s Muslim-dominated region in January 2004

After the event, tourists had been vanished from the sense, both places were heavily guarded by Thai security official, the shooting in the mosque were investigated by the human right groups  recommended  by the  Thai  government in order  to clarified  the human right violation committed by Thai security official, at last no any Thai security official were punished and “Kerisek  mosque completely become the  real conflict monument rather than archaeological remains as understand by the archaeologists”






























Al-Fatihah to all my atok nenek moyang yang dikebumikan di seluruh tanah Pattani! Semoga Allah mencucuri roh kalian yang sedang berada di alam sana!
