From me:
I remember Pak Lang. He was very thin and very tall. He usually wore a white Chinese singlet and a blue-white kain pelekat. Whenever we visited Pak Lang at home in Kampung Baru, Bapak and Pak Lang would talk and their conversation was endless. I don't know what they talked about. Mak Lang would always cook lunch for us. It took her very long to cook as she had to go to pasar first and then clean the fish and vegetables before she got down to cooking. I could die waiting for lunch to be ready. I don't understand why she took so long to cook. I later found out that she didn't have a stove and was sharing a stove with a neighbour in the vicinity, at "rumah atas". That explains it I guess.

Mak Cik Jamilah/Makcik Mila (Jamilah bt Muhamad Saleh) said she is the eldest child of Pak Lang and Mak Lang but Bapak said to me that Pak Lang had another daughter and Makcik Mila was second. I don't know which one to believe. I will leave it as that.


From Mak:
Mak said the family was doing well by selling wedding linen and prep (perhiasan perkahwinan). They were very good seamstress and made beautiful wedding stuff for Malay weddings. One of their best products is the wedding bed cover and throw pillows which nobody else in KL could make. I've seen a blue bed cover they made and that was very well-sewn despite not having a sewing machine. A lot of their handiwork was hand-sewn.
