KEDAH: A Fleeting Greeting

.   .   .

So came the time to see where my bother had been living the past 5 months, and to finally meet the people who had so warmly taken him into their community. Rural Kedah was a big contrast to where we had stayed previously on this trip. It is a northern state, bordering with Thailand. With the exception of Langkawi, tourists rarely visit this part of the country, so I was intrigued to be amongst an almost unspoilt, traditional way of life.

We were to be guests at a welcome/celebration meal at our Homestay in the evening, this is where we were to meet students from Richard’s various classes and other friends of his in the community. But first we went to check out the local market, from which the ingredients for the evening meal would be bought.

After settling in at the Homestay, I ventured about to capture the new environment…

Never found out why they were locked up… i like to think for beneficial reasons.

As the sun set over the Rice Padi, the guests began to arrive… eager to meet us and very happy to feed us!
