4️⃣. KKB Post Office 🏤

It was built around the 1930s along with the development of KKB. It was designed with the Neo-Classical Architecture style, mainly characterised by round gable windows & round tribe casement windows 

5️⃣. No.1 & 2 Jalan Dato Tabal Shophouses

Shophouse No.1️⃣ (PWD 211) & No. 2️⃣ (PWD 212) are shophouses in the historic building category. These shophouses were dispossessed by security forces during Malayan Emergency. However, there are 2️⃣ versions of the story,

Version 1️⃣ ~ This building is used by Communists to attack the Police 🚨👮🏻‍♀️👮🏻‍♂️Station @ Bukit Kerajaan

Version 2️⃣ ~ This building has been used by the Communists forces for their meetings

In the past, this Dato Tabal street was called as Bowen street.

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 🇲🇾👭👬👫

Approximately 4K villagers 👭👬👫 in Kampung Parit 2 & consists of Javanese (@ paddy field), Banjarese (@ coastal area) & Malays (In between paddy field & coastal area). The other villages are Kampung Sg Nipah, Kampung Sg Limau & Kampung Parit 4

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

Traditional Food Cooking Demo ~ Sambal Cili Hijau

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

It’s a traditional music ğŸŽµğŸŽ¶ of the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra, Indonesia 🇮🇩 however was brought to Negeri Sembilan, West Malaysia 🇲🇾 in the 14th century by the Minangkabau people

 

A small-size gong made of bronze  that produces melodious sounds & often used to play a wide variety of both traditional & modern music ğŸŽµ ğŸŽ¶ Other instruments e.g. bamboo flute, “Saluang, Malay tambourine & gong are played together with Caklempong for various dance/ performance e.g. Pencak Silat, Candle Dance, Wayang Kulit etc.

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 ğŸŽ» , a melody guitar ğŸŽ¸ , a cello, string bass in pizzicato style & with either a female / a male singer ğŸ‘©ğŸ½â€ğŸŽ¤ğŸ‘¨ğŸ½â€ğŸŽ¤

 

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 🇮🇩

No ❌ longer associated with the religious / mystical ceremonies in the past years

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 ğŸŽ‚ 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 ğŸŽğŸŽ‹, then painted & decorated with colorful paints and cloth to resemble a horse ğŸŽ 🐴 Some of the dance movements in the Kuda Kepang rituals are based on traditional Malay silat
