I went to Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan to interview my mom's uncle, Atok Hassan for our Minangkabau project. It was about 2 hours drive from my place to his house in a village called Padang Lebar. I even went to the house where my mom was born and also to Teratak Za'ba, a house of a Malay scholar that has been converted into a Museum.
