Pencak Silat by Adzim, Khalid, Suriati, Akbar & Harris
Intro : "Pencak Silat" by Adzim, Khalid, Suriati, Akbar & Harris

The evil woman (Kate) kills Bawang Putih's mother (Joanne)
One day, an evil woman (Kate) killed Bawang Putih's
mother (Joanne) while her husband was away

The merchant marries the "evil woman" (Kate)
The merchant (Top) soon married the evil woman (Kate),
not knowing that she was the one who killed his late wife.

One day, his son Iskandar (Derek) found out that she was
his mother's killer and he then tried to kill his stepmom.
Unfortunately his father was killed while protecting her.
Iskandar ran away, leaving his baby sister, Bawang Putih.

Iskandar became the Prince's best friend
Iskandar was later adopted by the King and became the best
friend of young Prince Alauddin, the heir to the throne.

The evil mother torturing her step daughter, Bawang Putih (Jennifer)
Bawang Putih (Jennifer) was raised by her evil stepmom who was
never kind to her. She was forced to do all household chores while
Bawang Merah, her stepmom's birthchild, was treated like a princess

Bawang Putih talks to her friend, Kalong the Fish (Joanne)
Whenever Bawang Putih felt sad or lonely, she
would talk to her friend, Kalong the Fish (Joanne).

Dikir barat "Ulik Mayang" & "Joget Kelantan"
One fine morning, the Prince & Iskandar watched a
"dikir barat" show, performed at the market.

The market people sing "Gadis Misteri" to Bawang Putih
The Prince saw Bawang Putih for the first time, but only from
a distance. Fascinated at the beauty of Bawang Putih,
everyone at the market sang "Gadis Misteri" to her.

The theme song "Maybe Tomorrow"
The Prince, Iskandar & Bawang Putih
sang the theme song for Gemilang 2000 :
"Maybe Tomorrow" (composed by Nadiah)

The evil stepmom kills Kalong the Fish
After knowing that Bawang Putih was spending a lot of
time with the fish instead of doing household
chores, the evil stepmom killed the fish.


The bones of the fish then turned into a tree and its veins
became a swing which Bawang Putih could sit on.

She started singing. Her lovely voice was heard by the Prince. When
she realized that someone was looking for her, she quickly
returned home. The prince kept on looking for the girl . . .

Bawang Merah pretends that she is Bawang Putih
The Prince later came across a house where the evil woman lived.
Bawang Merah claimed that the lovely voice was hers but she failed
to convince the Prince when she was asked to sing once more.

The Prince (Bahar) meets Bawang Putih
Then Bawang Putih appeared. He remembered seeing her
at the market the other day. He invited her to attend
a ball that would be held at the palace.

Hindi dance at the Ball
At the palace, during a Hindi dance performance, the evil stepmom
put a love spell on the Prince for her daughter, Bawang Merah.
True love won : the spell did not work !

The final scene : the death of Iskandar
The evil stepmom tried to kill Bawang Putih but Iskandar
killed her first before he himself was killed. Only then he
found out that Bawang Putih was his long-lost sister.
The Prince and Bawang Putih then
lived happily ever after . . .
