Seremban's tradition (Adat Perpatih)
Seremban is Negeri Sembilan State's capital, they are descendants of Minangkabau of Western Sumatra. The tradition is known as 'Adat Perpatih', was originally non-Islamic, where women holds the power in family and possession, properties belong to daughters, not sons, etc. Now Islam is in power, Adat Perpatih is a clash to Islam, so I better keep quiet.

Begging for money
Begging for money at roadside is a photo I took while strolling towards Terminal Shopping Centre. I saw a mother with two kids sitting there with hand reach out to beg money from pedestrians. Correct me if wrong.
Seremban is called "Fuyong". The tin mining attracted many Chinese immigrants to Negri Sembilan.
When you see the prewar house shoplots, you will see many shop signs with Chinese characters. This is because many of the older Malaysian Chinese do not read English or Malay and can only understand Chinese characters.
As with many towns, most of the local Chinese live in newer residential areas are outside of the downtown areas where one can have a garden and a place to park a car or two.
The ethnic Chinese are still the majority of the town dwellers.
Gemas Golf Resort
This rather old course plays to 5,972m from the blue tees... The shorter First Nine plays to 2,852m while the Second Nine at 3,120m... The fairway is of cow grass and the course is rather hilly with some holes where water come into play... The clubhouse is big but under utilised... The changing rooms are rather un-maintained... There is a small golfders terrace for drinks... There are also accommodations for golfers who want to stay the night... and these are normally taken by visiting Korean golfers during their winter sojourn...
Staffield Country Resort
Designed by Australian golf course architect Graham Marsh, Staffield golf course comprises three separate 9-holes courses... viz Northern, Southern and Western... Sprawling over some 335 acres of gently rolling meadows, the course gives an impression of courses in faraway Ireland and Scotland... From the blue tees, the Northern Nine plays to 3,197m with both the Southern Nine and Western Nine at 3,108m... The course is comparative flat with water coming into play in some holes... Generally, it is a comparatively easy course to play for low scores...
Promotion rates (as at June 2007) is RM58 (on Mondays) and RM68 (from Tuesday to Fridays) for tee-offs before 8.30am... Players must take note that caddy service (at RM32 for 18-holes excluding tips) is compulsory which makes the promotion not so attractive after all... It is unfortunately to note that the course is not so well maintained currently and certainly not in the best shape to have a round of enjoyable golf...
