Great Place to Stay and Experience Kampung Life: Banghuris Homestay

After attending the press conference in Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort,Team E.T.A were brought to Banghuris Homestay, Sepang.
image We were welcomed by a bunch of kompang players who played the traditional welcoming music with the kompangs. For those who are not familiar with this term, it is a Malay tambourine that is used in Islamic devotional music in Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, and Singapore. The sound of kompang often accompany Islamic ritual such as the zikir. It is is widely use by Malay people when celebrating the bride and groom in a wedding ceremony

Almost like a kenduri

Upon arrival, we were served some mee soup. 😀

image

And fried Tempe; soya bean paste coated in light flour batter anddeep fried. Good on it’s own or taken as a condiment with the mee soup. Best taken with chilli sauce, I must say.

image

A huge surprise to durian lovers. :) Our host made sure that we enjoy our kampung visit to the fullest by throwing us a durian feast.

image

After satisfying ourselves with the durians and fabulous food that our generous host has prepares for us, Team E.T.A went and checked out the fishing pond. Fishing is part of the activities provided by the Banghuris Homestay that you shouldn’t miss.

Our media friend showing us how to fish like a pro by just using bamboo fishing rod. It can be rather tricky. We didn’t get any fish. :( Better luck next time.

image

Getting rather frustrated that we did not get any fishes, we took a walk and spotted loads of trees and plants. One of it is the lime tree. The trees was abundant with fruits. We plucked some and popped em into our mouth…but it was so sour.

Walked further and ended up in a bamboo forest.

Finally managed to get some honeyed bamboo shoots.

Next stop is the mock rubber plantation for the rubber tapping activities. Yup. Rubber tapping is another activity provided by Banghuris Homestay. A must try for you city folks. A word of caution. Please wear proper attire or you’ll be donating lotsa blood to the mozzies.

Not too shabby for TEAM E.T.A. Mr. T managed to make the tree bleed on his first attempt.

Next stop is the rubber processing station
