A Visit to Rembau

Went to Rembau, Negeri Sembilan with my coursemates to do some research on Adat Perpatih. These are some pictures taken during the short trip. Adat Perpatih is a tradition practiced by Minangkabau Malay where female right is more emphasized. In this community, family's property is fully divided among daughters. If the family has no daughter, the property will be passed to female cousins or aunts. Son has no right to keep any family property. What a pity for them.
