Place Red Tile Roof Restaurant, 红瓦屋老地方文化美食餐厅- 阿美族风味餐

Price : NTD 1,540  / RM 163.73

Review : The steamboat pot is made out of penang leaf stem. Once the leaf stem is dry, it can withstand the sizzling hot stone. The waiter will put the hot stone into the soup. As the stone is very hot, it can cook up all the ingredient in the soup. This way, the soup has the sweet  fish soup taste without the fishy smell.

We are quite curious with lovers' tear too. lovers' tear  is a kind of mushroom can find after the rain. It is very different from black fungus in Malaysia. It has very thin and smooth texture. It is very suitable for old folks too.

Hakka Kelapa Sawit Art Festival 2014

31 August 2014

Di Sini Lahirnya Sebuah Cinta
At here, a Love blossom.

Happy National Day to Malaysia! This year national theme is very unique. Love can mean everything. It can mean  patriotism, love for art, love for culture and love for hometown. I strongly feel it at Hakka Kelapa Sawit Art Festival. The villagers use mural and art to show their love toward their village and the country.

26 Koi Fish. It also symbolised 26 miles. "Miles" as the similar pronunciation  to "Koi" in Chinese.

The History of Kelapa Sawit New Village

Kelapa Sawit means oil palm in Malay.  Kelapa Sawit or 26 miles is a small village located at the north of Kulai . The village has approximately ten thousand population. Their income are mostly  based on agriculture sector.

Before 1949, the village was named "Chang An Village". It means longevity peacefulness in Chinese. In 1949, the British colonial declared emergency act. All villagers around 24 miles to 27 miles were required to move and live at 26 miles. Thus, Kelapa Sawit New Village was established.

Most of the villagers are Hakka Clan. Hakka clan is famous for their hardworking and determination spirit. For the past 65 years, The clan been working very hard to develop today result. 


The objectives of this festival are
  • To promote patriotism
  • To promote art or mural
  • To let younger generation to experience some traditional culture
  • To promote Hakka clan cuisine

Mr. Ang and I arrived the art festival around 10am. There were lots people busy snapping their camera and smartphone.

LerLer had captured lots among of photos. The photos can be viewed >>HERE<<.

This remind me of Pink Tecoma Flowers bloom season in Johor.

We did not manage to buy some Hakka cuisine due to the long queue. There was a rain around 12 noon too.

1 Malaysia spirit is at Kelapa Sawit. Vegetable charity sale for the local primary school. 

Although the event is over, visitors can still visit the village. The mural will be still on the wall.
Not to forget, the delicious Hakka cuisine can be found here too.
