Sepang Corner Healthy Fruit & Florist

Yeah‌ Sepang is well known for its dragon fruits plantations, in fact the biggest dragon fruits plantations in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ , you can easily spot the cactus alike dragon fruits plants almost everywhere here đŸ€©

This education trip has involved its participants to learn & DIY own bottle of Pitaya Enzyme here, precious learning time gained & at the same time to instill healthy living tips, bravo đŸ‘đŸ»

Hmm…Before joining, SiennyLovesDrawing was curious đŸ€”â“â‰ïž

  • What’s the ratio/ portion❓
  • Fermentation in room temperature❓
  • Need to stir it? If yes, for how many days❓
  • What’s the nutrition of Pitaya enzyme❓
  • How to keep the Pitaya enzyme❓

Guess what❓⁉

The secret ingredients & tools are simple, just the dragon fruits, lemon & brown sugar, knife đŸ”Ș & glass bottle. The instructor has shared that must use glass bottle for Pitaya Enzyme DIY making, else it will fail…So, do remember ya

The DIY pitaya enzyme steps also easy to follow from the instructor’s guidance,

  1. Wash hand & fruits, then clean & slice the fruits with knife đŸ”Ș
  2. Put in all the ingredients layer by layer in the glass bottle
  3. Once full, close the lid & store the glass bottle in a cool & dry place. No need to place in fridge yet
  4. Do shake the bottle gently everyday to get the brown sugar to coat the fruits nicely
  5. The pitaya enzyme should be ready in approximately 3ïžâƒŁ weeks
  6. However, once opening the lid for consumption, do place the enzyme in fridge. The 🆒 temperature will slow down the fermentation process & delay the enzyme from turning into vinegar

The Razaleigh Mosque of 99K square feet & equipped with 9ïžâƒŁ towers as high as 30m & 8ïžâƒŁ domes similar to the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, it was inspired by the Member of Parliament for Gua Musang, YBM.

This mosque with a unique & attractive design using high quality building materials including tiles built on a site of 1.5 hectares with capability of accommodating up to 3.5K congregations. Wow‌

The idea to build a replica of the Kaaba was sparked by Gua Musang Member of Parliament, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah

Dear Sabah Tourism,

Yes, Sienny Yong aka SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» would like to explore more about Sabah & Sarawak in the future which both made Malaysia owns the 25% of Borneo’s land. Borneo, the 3ïžâƒŁrd largest island đŸïž in the world 🌎 & divided between 3 countries ie. Indonesia đŸ‡źđŸ‡© , Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ & Brunei 🇧🇳

Once upon a time…

Still recalled her 1ïžâƒŁst fly to Sabah was right after her university graduation đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŽ“đŸŽ“ & as a graduation celebration đŸŽ‰đŸ„ł trip to reward herself by opting for a hike to Mt Kinabalu (Mt KK) ⛰ (aka Akinabalu by the local Sabahan people), it’s her 1ïžâƒŁst hiking đŸ„Ÿ trip, also to explore Malaysia’s 1ïžâƒŁst heritage site, Kinabalu Park. Hmm…It was really long long ago & at that time she has got no social media platforms to show off her summit photo with her full colour certificate at that time 😃😁 She was hike up with Mesilau route, it’s with beautiful scenery, though slightly longer journey as compared to the route she opted to go down, Timpohon route, a stairs alike route & not comfortable for her tiring legs back then. Guess what❓⁉ Her beautiful colour certificate is nicely kept in the safety deposit box with a local bank 🏩 now, 1ïžâƒŁ of her precious achievements in life âœšđŸ‘đŸ»

Then, her 2ïžâƒŁnd fly to Sabah was as a volunteer to collect & supply stationeries & teaching to some Bajau Laut kids at the rural sea nomad villages of Semporna Island đŸïž Still recalled the chalet hotel that she stayed was being flooded due to a heavy rain đŸŒ§ïž storm & the rising level of sea 🌊 water at that time. She joined her other volunteers together with the chalet staffs to clean up the chalets surrounding. The pure hearts & smiles of the rural kids still warm kept in her heart ❀ It was a memorable weeks spent with the local Sabahan kids & people, sure the kids have all grown up healthily now. Interactions with local people is what SiennyLovesDrawing enjoys & treasures the most, valuable juicy life stories, learning more about local living, cultures etc. Absolutely precious 💕

.

These 2ïžâƒŁ travels to Sabah shared above were happened when she has yet to start her lifestyle blogging here at that time, also she wasn’t active in social media postings too

Then her blogging passion here âœđŸ»đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’» got noticed & received honourable media invitation 📧 to join the Malaysia Inbound Tourism Association (MITA) business networking 3ïžâƒŁD2ïžâƒŁN trip in 2018. 3ïžâƒŁrd fly to Sabah to explore & then shared her travel stories about the eco tourism at Sabah, read more via 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2018/12/17/6-eco-tourism-must-see-in-sabah-malaysian-borneo/ & 📌🌐 https://twitter.com/SiennyLovesDraw/status/1070869540232286208

Flat Bread Making đŸ„ (aka Roti Canai in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language)

Just realised that the making of roti canai đŸ„ aka flat bread actually not ❌ so simple & easy, especially the making process of hand throwing the dough â˜ș

Always order & at times complaining about the long wait for roti canai to be served at mamak stall, after learning how to making it from this trip, she will not ❌ complain anymore for sure 😀

Where to Eat

Laman Tebu 🎋 Aidil Orkid

A small stall operated by a family within home 🏡 compound & with sugar cane🎋plants by the roadside. A calm pleasant dining space

Must try the original sweetness sugar cane drink đŸ„€& with some ice cubes in it

💯% confirmed no ❌ added sugar of its refreshing natural sweetness sugar cane drink đŸ„€to enjoy a glass after a glass. A healthy drink not to be missed ya

Note: Tebu aka sugar cane in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ 's national language

Also must try đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ packed nasi lemak, BBQ honey 🍯 chicken wings & BBQ honey chicken back 🐓🍗

Guess what❓⁉

8ïžâƒŁ kilos each of chicken wings & chicken back being sold daily according to the owner đŸ‘đŸ»Wow‌đŸ˜Č That’s a lot, good business 😁

Personally she đŸ‘©đŸ» really enjoyed the nasi lemak served here with its sweet spicy đŸŒ¶ sambal đŸ˜‹đŸ€€

Its core business remains with orchid & bonzai plants. Then, venturing to this food business from the owner’s kids ideas from a whole family discussion đŸĄđŸ—ŁđŸ‘„đŸ‘€đŸ‘„ as the sales of plants were badly affected during the Malaysia’s Movement Control Order (MCO)

The owner’s son has won some bonzai recognitions 🏆🎖🏅nationwide & international đŸ‘đŸ»Bravo đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»
