The Malay Adat - Poem by Ismim Putera

The Malay Adat
by Ismim Putera

Every time you need to walk pass an elderly,
Bend your body down a bit, walk slowly,
This will somehow prevent you from colliding with them.

Kiss your parents' hands, for blessings,
Every time you leave the house,
And every time you reach home.

When you meet your friends,
Shake their hands,
And return your hands back to your chest,
Signifying ‘your presence will stay forever in my heart'.
