Kelantan is a state of Malaysia that is located in the east coast region of the country peninsula. The state of Kelantan is known for their unique local culture and dialect, and they are proud of it. With the Kelantanese Malay people being the predominant ethnic group in the state, the rich Malay traditions such as kite-flying contests, top-spinning contests, and bird singing competitions, and traditional handicrafts such as batik, kain songket, and paintings and wood carvings are still preserved. Even so, Kelantan's economy is still predominantly riding on paddy, rubber, and tobacco as cash crops but not forgetting the fishing and rearing livestocks. As for their dialect, it is called the Kelantanese Malay and it is very distinctive compared to the standard Malay language. One can speak fluent standard Malay but have trouble understanding their dialect. Not only is their language distinctive but it's the same for their food as well. The commonly known ones are Nasi Dagang and Nasi Kerabu.
Kelantan was greeted with a good news from the Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed whom approved five development projects, namely the East Coast Highway 3 (LPT3), Central Spine Road (CSR), and extension and upgrading works of the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport in Pengkalan Chepa, Kota Baru-Kuala Krai highway, and the Palekbang bridge to Kelantan under the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP).
