Curious why Javanese 🇮🇩 foods❓⁉️

During this village visit, she 👩🏻 has a privilege to taste some of the traditional 🇮🇩 Javanese foods & delicacies, read more via 🌐 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javanese_cuisine

Selangor state of Malaysia 🇲🇾 is with lots of Javenese migrants 🇮🇩👫👭👬 since early 1900s, hence lots of Javanese cultures are being influenced to the local Malaysians 🇲🇾👭👬👫

Traditional Food Cooking Demo ~ Sambal Taun/ Tahun 🌶

This sambal is originated as 🇮🇩 Javanese’s spicy 🥵🌶 sauce with the amount of chillies 🌶🌶 used & generally cooked with anchovies, clams, cow skin or cow inner parts etc.

It aims to keep for consumption of almost a year (ie. Tahun means year in Malaysia 🇲🇾s national language)

Keep in cooking wok & heat up daily for consumption as chilies 🌶🌶 are natural food perservative. Not to mix with coconut milk when 1st cooking it for keep purposes

She has enjoyed this dish with cow skin (Its texture like a jelly), a delicious tasty 🤤😋dinner 🍽 she had

Beats of Selangor 😃 ~ Malay

During her recent glamping 🏕 stay @ Dusun Bonda, Batang Kali of Selangor state, West Malaysia 🇲🇾 , she 👩🏻 has a chance to learn more details about the Malay traditional music & beats as below,

Malaysian Caklempong

Keroncong band performance

It’s actually the name of a ukulele-like instrument & an Indonesian musical style which typically makes use of the keroncong (i.e. The sound chrong-chrong-chrong comes from this instrument). So, the band consists of a flute, a violin 🎻 , a melody guitar 🎸 , a cello, string bass in pizzicato style & with either a female / a male singer 👩🏽‍🎤👨🏽‍🎤

.

She 👩🏻 has learnt that 1️⃣ ukulele named “cak”, a steel-stringed. The instrumentalist strums chords with up to 8️⃣ strums per beat in 4/4 rhythm. The off-beat strums are often accentuated. The other ukulele named “cuk” is slightly larger & has nylon strings. As a set, both the “cak” & “cuk” form an interlocking pair that mostly gives Kroncong its characteristic kron & chong 😊

.

Tor Tor Dance & Gordang Sembilan

Tor Tor dance & 9️⃣ great drumbeats/ percussion (Gordang Sembilan in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language) are the cultural heritage of Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s Mandailing community, which originally came from Mandailing, North Sumatera of Indonesia 🇮🇩

Kuda Kepang

It was 1️⃣st introduced in the early 20th century when Javanese immigrants 🇮🇩👭👬👫, who brought this unique dance & 1️⃣st arrived in the southern tip of West Malaysia 🇲🇾 It’s usually performed by 9 to 15 pax, usually all men dancers traditional Javanese clothes

In the past years, Kuda Kepang is believed to have a strong linkage to the spirit world, however at present it becomes a regular dance performance for the birthday 🎂 of the Sultan of Johor, state government celebrations & cultural shows in Malaysia 🇲🇾

.

It’s a traditional Javanese braided hobbyhorse dance & in the dance performance, all the dancers will ride the 2️⃣D mock horse which is traditionally made of bamboo 🎍🎋, then painted & decorated with colorful paints and cloth to resemble a horse 🐎 🐴 Some of the dance movements in the Kuda Kepang rituals are based on traditional Malay silat

Moreover Khun Mai 🧕🏽 didn’t put in lots of chilies, so not too spicy ❌🌶 for SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 to enjoy

She 👩🏻 has requested for additional sourish, so more organic lime juices being added in to this pot, absolutely delicious to enjoy 😋🤤

Black Pepper & Garlic Shrimps 🍤🍤

Hmm…Perhaps the shrimps 🍤🍤 for this dish were relatively smaller, so its meat slightly softer comparatively

The black pepper flavour wasn’t too strong to enjoy, love ❤️ the taste as the garlic & black pepper really blended well 👍 for this dish

img_0997

Garlic Fried Sea Bass 🐟

Samut Sakhon ~ Hidden gem in Thailand đŸ‡šđŸ‡­

Hey all‼️ How have you spent your 2018 year end break❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her 2018 year end travelling 🎒🕶👟🧢 with Take Me Tour, Thailand 🇹🇭

Pick 1️⃣ ~ Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~ 

Yes ✅, she 👩🏻 has booked 👩🏻‍💻🛒 more than a tour…do stay tune for her next blogging ya 👩🏻‍💻📝

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car 🚗🚙 airport transfer ✈️, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has booked 👩🏻‍💻🛒✅ for a few & really impressed 👍🏻🤩 with its reliable, safe & comfy ride 🚗🚙 to/ from Don Mueang International Airport ✈️

Do consider for your convenience especially with night 🌃🌌🛬 arrival ya

Before she 👩🏻 has decided on this tour, she 👩🏻 has read 📖 about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers 👫👭👬

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has observed that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ really having a great 👍🏻 relationship with the villagers 👭👬👫 & communicating well 🗣👥👤👥 with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding 👍🏻🤝 & friendship being built, bravo 👏🏻🙌🏻 to her 🙋🏻‍♀️‼️

She 👩🏻 also truly believes that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️has chosen ✅ to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests 👬👭👫 about this small village in a less travelled  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. from the salt water 💦💧 gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods 🍽🍴🦀🦐🐟 etc.

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ also aims to help to boost ⬆️ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆️ the earning power 💰 of the villagers 👭👫👬 here especially during the raining ☔️🌧 season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇️ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉️

She 👩🏻 woke up early that morning 🔅🔆 & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast 😋🤤 , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork 🐖🐷🐽 soup 🍲🥣 served with rice 🍛😋🤤 It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai 🇹🇭👫‘s home 🏠🏡 & within walking 🚶🏻‍♀️ distance from her hotel 🏢 named Bangkok Loft Inn 

This hotel 🏢 is located at📍55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand 🇹🇭 A nice 👍🏻 comfy stay 🛌🚿🚽with its strategic location📍 i.e. 5️⃣mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀️ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station 🚉, very convenient 🆗🆒 More details for your hotel booking 👩🏻‍💻👨🏻‍💻🛒 via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/ 

After breakfast 🍽🍴😋🤤, she 👩🏻 then proceeded 🚶🏻‍♀️to take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station 🚉 Oppsss…Too early arrival 🔅🔆 at BTS station named Wutthakat 🚉, not because of the time difference ya…

Yes✅, she was about 1️⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9️⃣am to meet up with Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking 📌 Just too excited 😆 for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh 😆😂 at her ya

Yeah‼️ A very nice 👍🏻 morning 🔅🔆 view with river 💦💧, long boat 🛶 & wat ⛩ from the BTS station 🚇 during her wait for the meet up 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

Hmm…She 👩🏻 was a bit lazy, else she would have walk🚶🏻‍♀️to visit this wat  ⛩ nearby that morning 🔅🔆 Instead she 👩🏻 seated down in the BTS station 🚉 & then logged in to her social medias 📱 & catching up with her friends & family members 👫👭👬 with her new 🆕  Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ was early to arrive too, so both 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀️ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9️⃣am

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, hence lots of common interest to chit chat 🗣👤 about during their approximately 30mins journey 🚙 to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” 😀

Both happily 😃 exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice 👍🏻 meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading 📖 her earlier blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 here, she 👩🏻 has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia 🇲🇾

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻‘s 1️⃣st visit to a Thailand 🇹🇭‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳, a home to a wide variety of birds 🦅🐦 & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand 🌊🇹🇭

Oppsss…The mudskippers 🐟🐟 here are fat & huge, it was high tides 🌊 during her visit, so not able ❌ to note the colourful Hermit crabs 🐚🦀crawling on the muddy field 😌☺️

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre 💚💚 with a collection of whale 🐋🐳 skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well as some its on-going marine conservation initiatives 🌊💚💚 here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo 🎍🎋 border project to avoid further water 💦💧 & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco 💚💚 sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders 🎍🎋 within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion 😧😲🙃

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ also into eco tourism 💚 & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, so they have more conversational topics 🗣👤 Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend 🙋🏻‍♀️ with similar travel & conservation passionate 😉

She 👩🏻 has shared a recent sad 😔 news 🗞📰 of the high ⬆️ potential of the de-gazette ❌ of Pulau Kukup Johor National Park 🌴 to Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ during this day tour, you may check out this said dissappointing 😔 online news 👩🏻‍💻👨🏻‍💻🗞📰 via 🌐https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2018/12/05/why-did-johor-quietly-degazette-pulau-kukup-national-park-asks-lawyers/

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has wrote 👩🏻‍💻📝 about this Pulau Kukup Johor National Park 🌴 via link 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2018/02/18/traveloguemalaysia-pulau-kukup-tanjung-piai/

Guess what❓⁉️

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️not just a great 👍🏻 local expert in sharing her knowledge about this village, she is also a great photographer 📸

Special thank you 🙏🏻 for the beautiful 😍 photos 📸 of SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during this mangrove forest 🌳🌳 walk🚶🏻‍♀️ya 🤗

Next, Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ also brought her to a local cafe 🍽☕️ (Hmm…In Thai name which SiennyLovesDrawing is unable to share the name, refer photo below for the cafe details) by her friend named Joy 💁🏻‍♀️ & her adorable shy daughter named Minnie 👧🏻 It was a pleasure to meet them & had a quick chit chat about Joy 💁🏻‍♀️’s recent visit to her orchard plantation 🌱🌿 in Central of Thailand 🇹🇭 , she plants 🌱🌿 for macadomia nuts 🥜 , coffee trees ☕️🌳, pineapples 🍍 etc. Love 💗 all the photos 📸📱 shared by Joy 💁🏻‍♀️, you will definitely note her passion in plantations 💗🌱🌿

IMG_0237.jpg

This cafe 🍽☕️ is located📍next to a river 💦💧, it’s really relaxing 😌 to dine 🍽 here to enjoy 😋🤤 the canal view. She 👩🏻 had a Thai tea ice stick ☕️🍦as well as try stir fried fresh vegetables 🥗 planted by Joy 💁🏻‍♀️ with sardines 🐟, yummy delicious 😋🤤‼️

IMG_0238.jpg

She 👩🏻 has observed during the car 🚙 journey towards the salt farm that some of the farmers 👬👬👬 here busy hand picking cockles 🐚 in the farms 😄

Yeah‼️ Next, she 👩🏻 has proceeded to visit the salt farm 😃

Yes ✅, the highlight ✨of this tour & she 👩🏻 has been long awaited for. Hmm….Why❓⁉️

This is because she 👩🏻 wanted to visit salt farm in Kampot village, Cambodia 🇰🇭 during her Phnom Penh trip in Nov. However, due to a last mins plan, no ❌ hotel available 🏢 as it was the annual water 💦💧 festival celebration 🎉🎊 , so SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was forced to cancel ❌ the Kampot visit plan, hence no ❌ chance to have her 1️⃣st visit to a salt farm 😌😔

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking 👩🏻‍💻🛒✅ has now fulfilled 🆒🆗 her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy 😃‼️

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view 👍🏻😍

Sea water 💦💧 is 1️⃣st being pumping into the farms.  Then, the sea water 💦💧will be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers 👫👭👬

She 👩🏻 has met with the salt farmers 👬👭👫’ family, learnt & discovered how the salt formed & also enjoy a home cooked lunch 🍽🍴with the top 👆🏻notch salt & fresh seafood 🦀🦐🐟 served from the salt farm to table 😋🤤
