Homestay Renok Baru

 

Bite into the delicious and mouth-watering pekasam, and youíll be forgiven if you first turned up your noses at its pungent smell. Savour it with bits of glutinous rice, and coconut shavings eaten with bare hands for a more authentic eating experience.

 

Pekasam, a local delicacy made with fish preserved in bits of salt and fried glutinous rice, is eaten with relish by the locals. The process of making pekasam fish takes at least a week, and one can see up close the tedious process of making the delicacy at the small cottage industry in the village.

 

Check out also the villageís bountiful herb produce, especially leaves of misai kucing (orthosiphon stamineus), harvested to make a special brew. It is highly prized as a drink to strengthen the bodyís defense system and has been traditionally drunk by Malays for centuries.

 

The village also holds some special surprises for craft enthusiasts, as they specially make their own vases, baskets and household decorations from bits of old newspapers!

 

See the amazing techniques, as they patiently roll the discarded newspapers by hand, and shape it into a useful household decoration.

Warm up to the villagerís friendly smiles, and join in the many activities at the homestay. Youíll definitely be mesmerised by the wonderful experiences gained during your stay!
