Taking Care Of Your “Barang”
I am sure
many of you have one or two “barang” or small scared items such as Merah
Delima, Besi Kuning, Mustika Pearls, Leklai, etc. You must also be given
instructions as how to take care of your items by the seller. Okay in that case
just keep doing what you do best then. I just want to share my side of the
method of taking care of these “barang”:
the “barang” honey. You must make sure that you must use natural honey. On the
contrary to common belief that only leklai feeds on honey, honey actually bring
out the natural color of the “barang”.
put the “barang” on fresh flowers. This is especially true for pearls of centipede;

gift from spiritual world is normally small; it is seldom of gigantic size.
natural “barang” does not have sharp edges; it should not look as if it is dug
out or chisel out from rocks.
authentic natural “barang” should not be too shinnying and normally it only has
only one predominant color.
the texture of the “barang”, it should be smooth and continuous.
it is. For example, if the name is “leklai” that means “flow metal”, so you should observe
smooth flow patterns; or it is not called leklai.
to observe after you have purchased the “barang”:
natural “barang” comes with a spirit. Unfortunately you can only find out after
the purchase: strange lights, sounds or shadows in the place where you keep
