Tepak Sirih in Malaysian Culture

In Malay tradition, the act of receiving and offering a complete Tepak Sirih has a very strong significance for both the receiver and the giver. Each ingredient in the container has a special significance. The way sirih leaves behave in their natural environment and the characteristics they display have led to these being viewed as a symbol of respect for fellow beings. The kapur or lime, being white in color, reflects the purity of heart and nobility which, when disturbed, can also turn bitter like the kapur tang. Honest and integrity are symbolized by the betel nut, which comes from a slender and tall palm tree. The nut is also a symbol of heritage or noble descent. Tobacco is often viewed as a symbol of bravery and the willingness to make any and every sacrifice when needed.

Trivia

During Malay wedding ceremonies, Tepak Sireh is an important gift, usually given to the couple by one of the family members. It signified good luck and prosperity.
