Malay units of measurement
This article is incomplete.(June 2013)
In measuring amount by volume, the common unit is gantang (gallon), which is equivalent to an Imperial gallon (4.55 L). A gantang can be divided into four chupak (quart). Chupak can be further divided into four chentong (cup), and two chentong makes up a leng (pint).
Chentong is also normally used only in certain areas, and so eight leng makes up a chupak.
When used to measure unhusked rice, a gantang weights about 4 to 5 lb (1.8 to 2.3 kg).
