Homestay in Sekinchang, Kuala Selangor




Went to a Malay Kampung for homestay last week.  It was a great experience which make me looking forward for another one again.  

A bus load of us went and we were split into various groups and foster parents took us back to their home separately which located in different area not far from each other.  


I was lucky to stay in a room with air-condition.  Wahaha! No mosquitos, no snake, no bugs were allowed into the room. I had a very good sleep that night.  



The house we stayed was surrounded with coconut trees and oil palm.  We requested the foster parent for some fresh young coconuts, immediately they brought a long bamboo pole and pull a few for us. 

I was told before that the coconut drink is slightly sour when you drink in the afternoon.  But so far I tried either in the morning or afternoon, it tasted the same, slightly sour + sweet.  But the coconut drink and fresh I tasted here in this kampung house is sooooo sweet so yummy. It was so nice it make me thinking for the whole night. So I decided to pull one the next morning before I go home or I might regret forever. I did, and I am satisfied now.

All the friends went to see fireflies, but I did not go.  I did not go because it was a small sampan boat which can accommodate maximum 4 person accompanied by one boatman to row the boat. The sampan looks unsafe to me and I don't like the milky water, looks very scary to me.  The whole journey took about 20 minutes.  

Among the program arranged for us a were fishing, visiting paddy field, vegetable farm,  cultural show, chocolate outlet, batik factory, firefly, mangrove swamp area etc.....

Now I have experienced fishing, which is not as easy as I thought. I see paddy field, now I know how tough it is to get the rice on our plate, and I now I know how important is the mangrove swamp.  It is not only important to us but also the animal like monkey, firefly, sea creature like prawn, crab, mud-skipper, but also for the migrating birds and the whole eco-system. 

Our dinner: Nasi Embang (not sure of spelling)


The above picture is Nasi Embang (Not very sure of spelling). It is rice at the bottom, on top is fried noodle, fried graded coconut, fried chicken.  This tray of rice is enough for at least 10 persons, but each tray only 5 person sharing that day.  We didn't finished it although it was really tasty and yummy!

The above was the arrangement of food.  We sat on the floor around the food and eat with our fingers. It was a great experience.

If They Are Able To Talk




"Hi, hi, hi, what so funny about me? Why tie me here, let me free! I need some exercise!"

"Hello, how are you? I am so bored, talk to me please!"


"I want my mommy! I want my mommy! Please find my mommy for me!"


 
"Please take me home, I will be good!"



"Give me a hug, please!"



"Hey, who is more handsome, you or me?  Well, I have eyes, nose, mouth like you, but you look a bit funny to me because you don't have hair in your face and body like me. hmmm.... funny look!"

"So you are taking me home? Yes? Right? Ok?"


 

"I don't understand why am I here. What I do everyday is eat and sleep. My bed never been washed, and my body is very itchy! lick! lick! scratch! scratch! Tak boleh tahan liao! Help! Don't you know I don't belong here?"






"Don't disturb me. Is my meal time, can you please leave me alone till I finished my meal."




"I don't know what to say.  Whatever it is, I am already finished. "

I HATE Cat

When I was young, my home used to have many cats.  It was not because my parent likes cat. That was because once the cat comes to the house and if you start feeding them, they will stay, and will never want to go away.  You will end up having many cats at home because cat make baby (kitten) very fast.
.
It is true, they will never go away no matter what.  You can use a gunny sack to carry it to a place far away but it will manage to come back again.  I am not kidding.  My dad used to take the cat and cycle miles away and left it in the jungle.  The second day we found the cat at home again ‘miao’ ‘miao’ ‘miao’, hey, it is so irritating. And you cannot kill a cat, cannot throw stone at them or else people will said you are ill-treating the cat, and when you go mad because cat steak your food or dirty your place no body bother. Worst is in the small town there is no place like animal center where you can dump them.
.
So the next time you want to throw a cat away, use car instead, which is faster so it cannot follow you back, haha...
.
I just dont understand why do people want to keep cat ya? Why? Why? Knowing it is smelly, dirty, cannot be trained, its fur is full of lice and it keeps miao, miao, miao around, which I hate so much. Sorry to the cat lovers ya, I am just curious.
.
I think I better don’t talk too much about the cat, or else the animal lover will come after me.  But I have to mention here because yesterday my fish was missing from my kitchen AGAIN. And I have to throw away my food each time I see a cat jumping out of my kitchen window. 100% they have already leaked my food with their dirty mouth and throw because I don't want to risk my stomach.

Can you see the cat there outside my window?  I don’t mind giving him a place to rest or sleep but don’t lah steal my fish or enter my house without permission!



And this has just happened today. Can you see the whole package of prawn dropped on the floor.  Luckily I came back fast, otherwise now the prawn in cat's stomach and not mind.

I think I have to think, think, think hard what to do instead of keeping my kitchen window closed all the time and get suffocated.

I Need A Change

I have heard of online marketing courses/seminar, but have not really attended one before. That is why my blog still have not changed ever since I started till now. I realized other's blogs have changed and have gone thru evolution. I can only say WAH! WAH! WAH! What to do, I am a very traditional person who refused changes. Hahaha
.
I have attended a seminar about Option Trading many, many years ago. That seminar has really changed me. In what way? It made me very skeptical about everything whether it really works or not. I don't trust all these seminars anymore.
.
When I go for the introductory talk, they made it so simple as if every dumb fool also can do it. And I was very sure I am much better than a dumb fool. So I joined in. That time younger ma, more adventurous lor and got more money lah!
.
That seminar cost me RM3,800.00 at that time. That amount is considered cheap now but in about 8 or 10 years ago, it was expensive.
.
Please don't ask me anything about that, I can't remember a single thing they taught about in the seminar, maybe I don't have time in those day to really work on that and I was not willing to take out money to experiment into something I am not familiar with after the seminar.
.
But now I realize that for improvement, sometime we have no choice but to take risk and thru trial and error.
.
Anyway, I think I have no choice but to find some time may be next year to fine a good guru to teach me online marketing, otherwise I will soon be eliminated in the cyber world.

KLCC + LCCT = KLCCT HA! HA! HA!

I was in KLCC, in front of Twin Tower last week.  One Chinese girl came to me and asked me for a favor.  She showed me a paper written LCCT.  She said she had just landed in KLIA and wanted to go to the place written in the paper which is LCCT.  Somehow the taxi that she boarded took her to KLCC. 

She wanted me to explain to the taxi driver that she wanted to go to LCCT and not the place he took her, which is KLCC. 

I spoke to the taxi driver and taxi driver showed me a piece of paper written down KLCCT, and a ticket show the amount the Chinese girl paid to KLCC. 

What a miscommunication.  Luckily the Chinese girl next plane was at 6 pm and the time then was afternoon which is about 2 pm. So one + hour to LCCT should be around 3.30 pm, still in time for the plane.

The person who wrote KLCCT should be shot left and right, otherwise he will cause more trouble to other tourists. 

We always say 'Malaysia Boleh', but see, this is another example of 'Tak Boleh' understand lor!

In this case the taxi driver "Boleh" earn another RM80.00 by taking the poor Chinese girl back to the LCCT.

Will you be willingly paying for another person's mistake?
