I speak English, Malay
Indulge yourself in the Malaysian traditions, culture and heritage - through an exclusive, real-life baby shower ceremony.
Normally, we prepare our guests for a wedding ceremony, with our traditional attire on. But for this featured tour, you are going to a baby shower event. In Bahasa, we call it "Cukur Jambul". A bit of the baby's hair will be cut to symbolise the practise of Islamic traditions whereby the baby's hair will be shaved. Cukur Jambul is said to originate from Hindu tradition but it is now harmonised in line with the Islamic tradition. According to Islamic tradition, the shaved hairs then will be weighed and the gold equivalent value of the hair will be donated to the poor and needy for charity.
There is another element of Islamic tradition which is called Tahnik. The equivalent of Tahnik in Malay Tradition is called "Bedah Mulut" which meant to stimulate the baby's sense of taste which is said to be rooted from the Hindu Tradition as well.
After the baby shower celebration, you are welcome to enjoy all the Malay traditional cuisines and delicacies. You will have a quick visit to Malay Traditional House for pictures, before heading over to play Malaysian traditional games and pastime favourites! From Congkak, Tarik Upih, Terompah Gergasi, Baling Selipar to Galah Panjang, these are games no longer played by the Malaysian millennial.
This is by no means is an exhaustive list of Santika Heritage Tour activities. So, please book your ticket now to avoid disappointment!
