Personally she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปwould like to recommend & suggest you all to opt for a village homestay during your visit to Kampung Parit 2 Sungai Haji Dorani ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก

Do check out FB page via ๐ŸŒ https://www.facebook.com/Doranihomestay/, it was founded during Javanese migration from Indonesia to Malaysia & a unique Javanese village which owns a different lifestyle & culture from the other Malay villages ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก

During this village visit, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has a privilege to taste some of the traditional ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ Javanese foods & delicacies, read more via ๐ŸŒ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javanese_cuisine

Selangor state of Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ is with lots of Javenese migrants ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ since early 1900s, hence lots of Javanese cultures are being influenced to the local Malaysians ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ

This sambal is originated asย ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ Javanese’s spicy ๐Ÿฅต๐ŸŒถ sauce with the amount of chillies ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ 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 ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พs national language)

Flat Bread Making ๐Ÿฅ (aka Roti Canai in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ‘s national language)

Just realised that the making of roti canai ๐Ÿฅ aka flat bread actually not โŒ so simple & easy, especially the making process of hand throwing the dough โ˜บ๏ธ

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 โŒ complain anymore for sure ๐Ÿ˜€

Where to Eat

Laman Tebu ๐ŸŽ‹ Aidil Orkid

A small stall operated by a family within home ๐Ÿก compound & with sugar cane๐ŸŽ‹plants by the roadside. A calm pleasant dining space

Must try the original sweetness sugar cane drink ๐Ÿฅค& with some ice cubes in it
