Guys, even wondered how a kampung lifestyle is? What is their daily routine? What do they do for a living? Where do they live? (On top of the tree? lol) What do they eat? Or even, what do they do for entertainment?
Well I’ve been wondering this all my life and thanks to Mo Ad Media, NewsZapped and of course Tourism Malaysia, my questions on the kampung lifestyle are answered. Mo Ad Media organized this homestay, while NewsZapped are responsible on handling us and Tourism Malaysia sponsored the whole 2 days 1 night trip! Thanks for everything! (;
Ok i am not here to tell you guys like what did i do from the time i left KL to the time i broad back a bus to KL ; filled with camwhore pics and little or zero explanation on the stuff that is displayed in my blog, but rather i’ll share with my readers, the easy going, unique, exquisite lifestyle of a typical Malay Kampung in Melaka with explanation for those who are curious!
Yup! This is where we blogger stayed. I forgot how many, but roughly 15 i guess. Oh wait, this is not where we stay, this is what the whole homestay is called! We live in the kampung people’s house (: As the place name explains, Argo tourism. Bet you can expect what is coming up next!
Ze bloggers looking a lil lost. They say “Rusa Masuk Kampung” We were greeted with greenery, left and right. Then the kompang welcomed us! (: It feels really like high school where the students ALWAYS plays the kompang for ANY occasion!
Ini dia, En. Suparman Bin Abu. He’s the president of Kem Model Insan homestay. He was the one in charge of dividing us among our foster parents and he did talk about the village, the aim of the homestay and what service they provide.
So well, basically Kampung Parit Penghulu is a Kampung in Sungai Rambai in the District of Jasin. Its like any other ordinary kampung with Paddy Field but in 2006 it was transformed into a homestay under the initiative of Tourism Malaysia. Besides homestay, they also provide all those team building camps with games and etc and cater to the customers request. Cool huh!
Apart from that, this kampung is like directly on the border of Melaka – Johor. You can literally step to Melaka and Johor in like say 5min? Daymn thats near! (:
Here’s a video of a typical kampung house in Melaka shot by Rebecca’s HTC DESIRE! WOOT ANDROID FTW!
En. Suparman call this kampung a “SPECIAL” kampung. Why? Because this is one of the only KAMPUNGS with HSDPA connection by DIGI! Seriously, i litterally get full 5 bars everywhere i go and there’s wifi connection at the Balai Raya and some homes. Im lucky my foster parents have Streamyx in the box!
Lemme show you the twitpic i did! haha
SEE?! haha. Also everyone in this kampung is tech savvy ok! Dont judge the book by its cover. They know what is blogger and what blogger does! They too have DSLR with NISSIN AND METZ FLASH MOUNTED! And also, they have FACEBOOK! Seriously you’ll be surprised! But honestly, i think its because of the exposure they get after their kampung is transformed into a homestay. I believe they are catching up with the people in the city!
so stay tune for the next post on what we did and experienced in the kampung.
till then, adios!
