  1. Hei Bagansiapiapi is my hometown!! :))

    Btw, I think Bakar Tongkar and Go Cap Lak are not the same.. Go Cap Lak is the 15th day after Imlek.. Cap Lak means 15. and Bakar Tongkang is a memorial of something which I can't explain. #halah

    Bakar Tongkang is also the way they use to predict their fortune, whether their bussiness is good on the sea or the land..

    well,, that's all my cetek knowledge that I could share. salam dangdut. :))
