Merdeka Day 2013 for Malaysia

Malaysia will be celebrating its 56th Independence Day on 31st August 2013. Merdeka means independent in Malay Language. What I am showing you below, is a special advertisement by PETRONAS, the Malaysian National Oil Company. PETRONAS has always been known to make remarkable heart-wrenching advertisements every year in almost every festivals or celebration.

The advertisement is very, very much about the rich diversity of Malaysians and their ways of life. Malays constitute of about 65% of the population, Chinese about 35%, Indians and other indigenous people in Borneo mostly, make up the rest of the percentage.

You gotta visit a kampung to appreciate the many kampung scenes in this video... no, I'm really serious! Enjoy, people~

Snapshots of OH! My Kampung Experience Tour

Keeping our Kampung experience REAL

Keeping our experiences REAL (Recreational, Educational, Adventurous, & just LOADS of fun), these two siblings from Egypt cannot be happier to be able to spend their time in the kampung.

Not only the learn how to fish and get to know its name, they are adventurous enough to cycle around the kampung too! These kids are so adorable and playful. Hagar (the girl), spent the day learning how to play congkak, a traditional Malay game as well. By end of the tour, she was already an expert!

Tour the Traditional Malay Wooden House

Rumah Melayu (Malay House), are traditional dwellings, originating before the arrival of foreign or modern influences, and constructed by the indigenous ethnic Malay of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo, made of timber and wood.

There are not many around anymore, as Malaysia is heading towards becoming a modern society. Most of the Malay Wooden House are only in the deep rural areas. We are lucky that 35 km away from the big city of Kuala Lumpur, these Malay wooden houses still exist, so tourists are welcomed to come in and see how the local kampung people live :)

Orchard Fruits


Have you any idea about these fruits?

Do you know their names?

Have you wondered what they would have smelled like?

What would their trees look like?

Wonder no more! In the tour, you would be able to learn and get to know all the above.

If you happen to come during the right seasons (usually between June - August), you might be lucky to taste ALL the seasonal fruits too!

Magic Herbs & Plants in the Herb Garden

A session with the "Herb Doctor" would open your eyes to the various types of trees, flowers and plants used in every day life - before the emergence of medical practitioners. Well, some are still being used until now.

The "Herb Doctor" will fascinate you with his quirky experiments of smell, taste and touch. A session that you will remember most of all.

Taste & Try Out...

When you are in a kampung, forget about formalities. Taste all the new food and fruits. Relax yourself amongst the green trees, chirping birds, and the calm sounds coming from the nearby river.

Try out traditional clothes - pretend that you are about to marry a Malay woman ;-)

Be adventurous and just have loads of fun!

What is Tengkolok or Tanjak?

How cute are these adorable Japanese couple?

What the Japanese man is wearing is called a tengkolok or tanjak. The tanjak or tengkolok, are popularly accepted as the traditional Malay headwears for men in Malaysia, although the Malays traditionally wear headwears and head-gears in various forms. Just as hats, berets, caps, and others are suited to their particular dressings in the western world, the Malay tanjak or tengkolok is worn and complements exquisitely the traditional full Malay costume of Baju Melayu.

 Besides worn during traditional Malay weddings by the groom during the bersanding ceremony, the tanjak or tengkolok are put on during formal and public ceremonies where royalties grace the occasion.

Fresh air of Kampung...


OH My Kampung Tour is the perfect tour for the entire family. Not only that it is a relaxing recreational tour that would not require you to walk too much, you would also be able to witness the natural beauty of Malaysia, far from the big blocks and skyscrapers of the city.


During the tour, you would be able to learn as much as possible about flowers, spices, vegetables and other plants which have been very useful to the kampung folks, way before technology was introduced!


Fishing is optional - especially for those keen to overnight. You would see a large pond of fish when you come and visit :)


"Kuih Bahulu, [is] a traditional Malaysian kuih (or cake).
A favorite among many Malaysians of all races and ages, kuih bahulu is usually baked during the festive seasons such as Hari Raya and Chinese New Year. These sweet and eggy kuih go very well with coffee, and are always a crowd-pleaser during the festive seasons. A few kuih bahulu and a cup of coffee is a surefire way to greet your guests…
Kuih bahulu comes in different shapes, but the popular ones are the button and goldfish (pictured below). Thekuih bahulu mold also come in different sizes–big and small. I used the small button and gold fish molds for my kuih bahulu because I simply adore cutesy size."

The kampung has its own local factory which produces kuih bahulu and other local delicacies too!

1. Berbekam
2. Malay Wedding
3. Malay Kenduri with Nasi Ambeng

You can also contact us if you are interested to host your event at Orchard Homestay.
