As I am stuck in my wife’s hometown of Kuala Kangsar due to the sudden Lockdown by the Malaysian Government. We were actually in Penang when the Lockdown was announced. But managed to reach Kuala Kangsar, on the day it was implemented. So we still could move back freely. However we couldn’t go back to Port Dickson. Due to the distance. So I am stuck here with a low internet coverage as my in law’s house is really deep in. But its a very nice place to relax. This is one of the reason I am not able to post about our recent trip to Penang. However with all the free time in my hand. I could really plan a bucket list of places to visit after this Pandemic clears. And it will. Thanks to the great people in our Health Ministry. THANKS ALOT GUYS.
To start with my bucket list. I was actually planning to go to Sekinchan in April cause its when they start planting the paddy. However that is on hold due to the Pandemic.
We have been to Kedah to show my kids about how rice is produced and where its grown. There is a very nice Muzium there, dedicated to everything about rice. Museum Padi was really educational for the kids and also us. However I have just found out that at Sekinchan there is activities of planting Paddy that families can get involved. This kind of experience is what I am always looking for. There’s is even activities of cycling around the paddy fields. A great activity for my ‘Budak Bandar’. I have also a little quaint homestay to stay here overlooking the paddy fields. Called the Padi Box. Hope its still open after the Lockdown.
Something about Sekinchan. Sekinchan is in the state of Selangor. It is one of the main producers of rice apart from Kedah. People go there for the green paddy fields. So its best to get more details about when the start planting and the best time to be there. What the people in Padi Box mentioned to me was the best time to be in Sekinchan is between April till July. Apart from the paddy fields and its activities, we plan can also go for the Sky Mirror Tour and also the Fishing Village Tour. That will be in another post for later days
