  1. Purple should be mekodok, not ingkodok.

  2. Thanks for the info. I got the word Ingkodok from my grandmother who comes form tutus hilir in mukah. I think mekodok maybe another word from other variant of melanau mukah :). Some village do have different variant of the same word eg. we say ganjil (lazy) but those from telian will say gajil instead :) From which dialek and village use the word mekodok?
