Hikayat Bawang Merah Bawang Putih & Hikayat Pak Belalang

From earliest days of childhood, we have been captivated by stories of myths, fables and parables that are a part of our Malaysia culture. We learn early lessons in life from these wise folklore tales painted with colourful characters. This year, Astro Ceria will bring the two most popular folklore stories to life in a franchise that will surely entertain both kids and parents alike. 

  • Hikayat Bawang Merah Bawang Putih

A popular traditional Malay and Indonesian folklore involving two siblings with opposite characters (one good, one bad), and an unjust stepmother. The folktale has the similar theme and message as the Cinderella folktale.

  • Hikayat Pak Belalang

This folklore tells the story of the work loathing Pak Belalang and his quick witted son. Pak Belalang conspires to portray himself as an astrologer in an attempt to help out his fellow villagers leading him to the royal palace to help solve a robbery, but situation turns complicated as their lies began to unravel.
