In Malay society throughout the time, Mahsuri’s story is definitely not something strange for many people. The story of this particular white-blooded woman has often been told since ancient times up until now. However, maybe people do not know that there is actually another legend of women who are also said to have white blood. The woman known as ‘Puteri Lindungan Bulan’. This legend of the daughter of royal descent has its own unique story.

The story of this legendary princess comes from an oral story that developed around the city of Siputeh and was passed down from generation to generation. It is actually about Sultan Sulaiman Syah who had ruled Kedah in the middle of the 16th period and the center of the king’s government was centered in the City of Seputeh. His Majesty is said to have a beautiful daughter who is said to have white blood, Puteri Zaleha. Apart from the white-blooded daughter, the king also has another daughter who is Puteri Zaleha’s grandfather, namely Puteri Mariam.

This case made Puteri Zaleha be so different from Puteri Mariam. Her white blood made her look unique and her name was always mentioned. The two daughters of Sultan Sulaiman Syah were beautiful in appearance. They also have a polite and gentle demeanor. Even so, Puteri Zaleha’s beauty was said to be more charming than Puteri Mariam. At the same time, Sultan Sulaiman Syah’s affection was poured out even more to Puteri Zaleha. In fact, the relationship between the two of them is so close that they cannot be far apart anymore.

Sultan Iskandar Muda Mahkota Alam who is the Acheh Sultan has dreamed of two beautiful girls who came out of a large grove. Too concerned about the beauty of the two girls, the king has referred to the astrology of the kings. According to this necromancer, they were the daughters of Sultan Sulaiman Syah who ruled Kedah. The astrologer also said that one of them was the White Blooded Princess. Listening to this matter, the king was increasingly interested in having a White-Blooded Princess, only the king could not identify which one of the daughters was.

A large wedding group was sent to Kedah. Sultan Sulaiman was worried about the safety of Puteri Zaleha. In addition, the king knew about the behavior of the Acheh Sultan who always exchanged wives. Encouraged by this feeling, the king exchanged Puteri Zaleha with Puteri Mariam, without being noticed by the marriage group. After the wedding customs took place, Puteri Mariam was brought back to Acheh. One incident occurred, where it was said that Princess Mariam was injured by the betel nut, and bled red blood, resulting in the secret that had been kept being exposed. Realizing that the king was deceived, Sultan Iskandar Muda ordered Kedah to be attacked.

Kedah was unable to oppose the gallant army of Acheh. Realizing the intent of the attack, Sultan Sulaiman ordered a stronghold to be built under the palace, where the king had hidden Puteri Zaleha. Kedah was defeated and Sultan Sulaiman and the other dignitaries were taken prisoner and taken to Acheh. However, before the king was brought to Acheh, the king had prayed that his daughter would be protected from the greed of the Acheh sultan. It is said that when the Acheh army destroyed the palace and city in search of this princess, even though the moon was floating brightly, the entrance to the fortress had turned dark causing the Acheh army to fail to get Puteri Zaleha. After being held captive for so long, Sultan Sulaiman died in captivity. During that period Puteri Zaleha, who had been left in the camp for so long also died. The king’s bodies were both buried at the top of the hill in the City of Seputeh which can be seen until now and the incident of the moon protection over Princess Zaleha’s grave still occurs to this day.

The tradition of wearing sampin has come way back since the generation of our elders. There are so many people that can be seen wearing sampin as part of their essential outfits. Definition of sampin according to Kamus Dewan would be as a sarong worn after wearing the pants in the Malay attire and usually from the waist to the knees only. Sampin is also used to complement the looks when wearing baju Melayu.

Nowadays, we often see people wearing sampin during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Hari Raya Aidiladha, or any other formal events that require them to wear baju Melayu. There are actually so many different styles that can be used when someone is wearing sampin. All of these different styles come from different regions and sometimes bring different meanings for the wearer.

These are examples of different styles of wearing sampin:

1) Ikatan Pancung

The method on how to wear this style is just by using loose fabric. The fabric is wrapped around the waist and before reaching the end of the fabric, the fabric is “beheaded”. That means the fabric is pinned while letting the end of the fabric hang down.

2) Ikatan Kembung

This is the style of wearing sampin that usually worn by the bridegroom in any wedding custom of the Malays. The word kembung comes from the impression of looking like you are bloating when wearing this style. The fabric is pulled to the middle or side of the body to be tied and knotted in various ways so that it will stick to the waist.

3) Ikatan Lingkup

This is the usual way on how people wear sampin. The sheath fabric is rolled up and draped over the front or sides. Similar to how to wear a sarong for everyday needs.

4) Ikatan Anak Raja Lima
