Ayat pancangan

A student finds this sentence problematic

Melihat anak-anaknya menunggu hidangan masakan ibu [dengan penuh keriangan] merupakan perkara yang menggembirakan ibu.

[dengan penuh keriangan] refers to the children and it is an addition which could be omitted:

Melihat anak-anaknya menuggu hidangan masakan ibu merupakan perkara yang menggembirakan ibu.

We establish that dengan is a conjunction elaborating additional information penuh keriangan as a partial insertion of adjunct in the extended sentence.

Similar example may is in YouTube:

Cikgu Umi dirai [dengan penuh keriangan] oleh para guru dan pelajar sewaktu hari pesaraan.
