Long Kuan @ Chau Kuan @ Tok is leaving us for Parinibanna !

Photo adapted from

Chau Kuan @ Long Kuan @ Tok is passed away due to the old age and suffered from serious asthma. Last  3 / 4 weeks when i was in Kelantan, i went to mete him but his house is empty / locked. According to kampung folks, he was admitted / hospitalized  in Kota Baharu for several days because of his bad asthma and health deteriorate  due to old aged.

It's a big lost to the Kelantanese Buddhist and Bangsek folks. Last time i met him was on May 2008 ,during school breaks. I went to pay him a visit and collect my Mai Thaw from him. It been 6 months with him, since i brought the red Mai Jangrak / Jangrak wood to be inserted with the yants / khom. 

I brought the blank jangrak wood tongkat him in November 2007.  Actually, he kinda refused to make any Mai Thaw anymore, he said .......

" Ku Kae Laew, Khian Yant Mai Dai... Mai Hean Laew ! "
(  I'm too old, cannot inscribe yant any more, can't see well )

After convincing him and he finally agreed but he said it will take quite sometimes to finish it and i have to wait for at least 3 to 5 months. He said the hollow part of the tongkat must be in 13 cm deep. He kinda surprised when i said that, i knew bout that and already made 13 cm long / deep hole.  I asked him what are the materials needed, for his Mai Thaw, he said he just  need to insert the mai thaw with  khom ( yant inscribbed ), nothing more !

It's true when it's takes almost 6 months and when i collected the mai thaw, he smiles at me and said ..........

" Mai thaw tham arai, mor neh ? "
( own mai thaw for what, wanna be a bomoh ?)

After a short conversation with him, i asked him whether he still have the Mai Thaw Pakka - Pen Tongkat ? He smiled and said .........

" Mot Leaw "
( Finished ) 

I reply this to him ...........

" Tham pakka mai dai mai ? "
( can make the new one for me ?)

He smiled , stood up and went to his drover and searching for something, after sometimes he came back and gave me 2 pieces of Parker Pen - Mai Thaw Pakka and said it was really last two pieces. Dunno why still have 2, he thot it was finished taken by Penangites. Ha ha, it was my luck day.  He said the clips of the Parker pen are rusty and bit faded and i might not like it. I just grabbed the pakka without any sigh. Rusty ? Must be kept for a long time i guessed !

I asked Chau Kuan further bout his Mai Thaw Pakka - Pen Tongkat. Especially the types of khom that he inscribed and the materials used. He just smiled and kinda refused to reveal his pen tongkat's secrets. I guessed i know what to do when you ask him a question but he / she just smile at you. Acccording to his looksit and Bangsek folks, Chau Kuan used a special type of shinning paper as its pen tongkat yant and it look likes Aluminuim Foil. Chau Kuan stuffs experts out there might have something to be share !

After the short conversation ( not fluent in Thai, spoke Kelantanese Hokkien, Malay and broken Kelantanese Siam language ). I paid him the thamboon ( RM200 each for Pakka Mai Thaw ) and special red packet ( angpow ) for the inserted yant with khom for my jangrak mai thaw and KRAPP him trice before leaving. Well, these 2 Mai Thaw Pakka and Jangrak Mai Thaw such a special TONGKAT instead , because i had never owned any of his stuffs before. It will be my treasure then !

If i could back to those year  ( 2007 ) and meet him again,  i would beg him and bring the BLACK SHIRT, 3 meters long of PLAIN / WHITE CLOTHES, 1 piece of "DAI DIP" ( benang basah ), PENGERAS and "PHAN" .......... presented to him and  WAI KRU him as my guru !
