Festival Kenyir 2017: Activities Aplenty for the Family

Sep 8, 2017 Author: Emily | Filed under: Events, Travel

The annual Festival Kenyir at Pengkalan Gawi, Lake Kenyir is back and it will be hosted next weekend for four days from 14th Sept. I attended the event two years ago, and although I wish very much to be at Lake Kenyir this year, I am grounded due to a mishap and I can only sit ... continue reading »

The invitation for a vacation at Resorts World Kijal came at a most opportune time; right after wrapping up a book project which caused me to sit in front of the computer for ten months, no less. So, it was time to let my hair down and not think of work at all for three ... continue reading »

Top off my head is Nasi Dagang, then there is Keropok Lekor and of course, Keropok Keping. In my previous two posts yesterday and the day ... continue reading »

Homestay Teluk Ketapang

Besides the homestay project (previous post), another income generator for KODESAL is the nearby stingless bee farm. There are about 300 man-made nests in the 2-hectare farm in Kampung Alor Limbat, Marang. I don't like bees and even though I know that they are stingless (kelulut), their buzzing still gave me the creeps. Nevertheless, I took ... continue reading »
