A Petite Batik Artist in Rantau Abang...
We were on our way to Kuantan from Kuala Terengganu on May 29, 2011, on see a signage that shows a sort of a Rest Area we stop to have a look at shops that sell Batik there. As I was about to enter the first shop someone from inside the shop say that I had to first take out my shoe if I want to enter. Well since they are more interested in what I wear rather than the money in my pocket I decided not to enter that shop.
I then move to another shop next to it which looks more like a shack than a shop. Anyway I decided to enter the shop. As I approach it I saw a lovely piece of Batik hanging to dry. I have a quick look of it and found that it is a beautiful piece of the work of art, which let me into buying it.
I then move on and saw a petite lady working on a piece of batik material. I seek her permission to take picture and she with a smile say it is OK. With that I then took some images of the happening while she diligently paints the Batik.
Meanwhile my spouse and our nephew arrived at the shop and start looking at the batik that are been sold there and end with buying many pieces of Batik textile and Batik T-Shirt. This part of the shop is managed by the elder sister of that petite Batik artist.
