First of all, thanks to NewsZapped media and Feeq for inviting me to this Melaka Homestay. To be exact it is Kem Modal Insan Agro-Tourism Homestay in Melaka (Kampung Parit in Sungai Rambai, Jasin). It was a two days trip and we get the chance to experience what does it feels like when a person stay in kampung. I am from Melaka town but I never live in a Malay Kampung before, so i can say some of the thing happened during the journey does attracted me.
"Homestay Kampung Parit Penghulu telah ditubuhkan sejak awal 2006 hasil idea dan usaha En. Suparman Hj. Abu yang mendapat kerjasama erat dari kalangan penduduk desa. Matlamat penubuhannya adalah untuk menjadikan kampung ini sebagai salah satu destinasi pelancongan di Negeri Melaka disamping memberi peluang masyarakat kampung melibatkan diri dalam industri pelancongan."
Kem Modal Insan Agro-Tourism Homestay was established early in 2006. The purpose of this homestay is to make the kampung as another point of interest for travel who drop by Melaka. You can experience how orang kampung live in a place that is so close to nature yet not lack of important facilities. I can say it is a free and lazy trip for me.
James Yeang (@friedbeef) was there for the Melaka Homestay trip too. One good thing for bloggers to travel together is we will have more opportunity to chat and exchange opinion about the blogsphere. Of course can get some tips of blogging from the professional too~!
We were feed with curry puff, kuih-muih and also durians~! Durian kampung have different taste one ar. Can you see the spirit of bloggers snapping photo of durian? haha
We are live in a place that is so close to nature, so inevitable flies are abundant insects that you will see in kampung area. I am sure people living in city will get scared of eating food that has been "kissed" by the flies.
How many flies? Watch yourself ;p
All of the bloggers were divided into different foster parents house. Me, James and David Jr. from Malaysia Asia go back with the same foster parent.
