Kata sesetengah org.tua,kalau belah nyoq tak dapat belahan yg.elok–maknanya hati tak lurus. Bukan apa.Benda yg.dibuat selalu, cekaplah(ada skill).Baru nak belajaq,ketaq sikit ,herot la…. (silap haribulan bukan terbelah dua tapi terbelah 3 ka 4) Tu ja….    According to an old superstition,if u were to halve a coconut and it didn’t turn out nice –that means u’re not sincere at heart.It’s just this.Things that u always practise,u’ll get the form (u’ll have skill).Of course as a beginner u’ll tend to shiver and the halves don’t look nice……(unlucky enough u’ll get multiple pieces of the coconut).That’s it…
