Tarik Lipat

The Cocos ethnic has this at their wedding called 'Tarik Lipat'. I am not sure if other ethnics have this too in their culture. Before they do the dance called 'Melenggok', the bridegroom and father-in-law will first have to pull this piece made of young coconut leaf called 'Tarik Lipat'. The witness holds the plate which has the coconur leaf and some yellow rice and coins.

The 'Tarik Lipat' symbolises the breaking of whatever enminities that had evolved around the two families that are now bonded as one.
