Seni Kome Peng Heng @Resorts World Genting

Resorts World Genting is located in Pahang which is the largest state in Peninsular Malaysia. There is a lot of cultural, arts and people in here which is unknown to tourists in Malaysia. At Resorts World Genting, this is one of the most visited tourists spot in Malaysia is definitely the best information provider location. Seni Kome Peng Heng is established solely for such purpose. 
The East Coast Arts & Cultural Centre—which SeniKome is also known as—will highlight various traditional art forms, specifically visual and performing arts from the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia from July to September. One highlight is Joget Gamelan, a classical dance that originated in the courts of Riau and Lingga in the 17th century. It became popular specifically in Pahang and Terengganu, and today 33 Gamelan dances are still in practice including Timan Burung, Ayak-ayak and Togok Rompin.
Four million people from different ethnicity live in peace and harmony as a result of their mutual generosity and warmth in accepting diversity and each other's uniqueness.
"Seni Kome"represents ├ľur Art". The word "Kome"is from the local Pahang dialect, which is also used in several other states while "Peng Heng"is the name stated in historical documents of the Ming Dynasty in the 1520s, which refers to the East Coast region of the Malay Peninsula. 
Just like the name suggests, SeniKome, Peng Heng"is a vibrant display of the local arts and culture of the East Coast regions, namely Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan. The East Coast community is affluent in courtesy, etiquette, artistry and still holds strong to its customs and traditions. Because of their close relationship with nature, nature is often used as a guiding element in their daily actions. 
Every activity of theirs is dependent on the passage of the seasons. Rich in culture and heritage, every piece of cultural element showcased here will bring a vibrant element of the East Coast culture to life for visitors.
Silk screen painting, also known as serigraphy or silkscreening, also comes to the fore at the centre located on Level 3 of First World Plaza in the coming months. Believed to have taken root some 1,000 years ago in China, it is considered among the most versatile of all printing processes.
The splendours of the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia—the states of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan—lie at the heart of SeniKome. Thematic displays of art and culture from these states are the focus of the centre. SeniKome, which means “our art” in the Pahang local dialect, is indeed dedicated to promoting the beauty of the east coast's local craft, fashion, games, food and music.
There is also an experiential area for various traditional games; this is where visitors can participate in Dam/Draughts and Batu Seremban and many more which you can see below.
Kercang - it is a traditional game which you will challenge yourself to jump higher each time crossing a rubber made rope.
Teng Teng or known as Hopscotch - is a popular playground game in which players toss a small object into numbered triangles of a pattern of rectangles outlined on the ground and then hop or jump through the spaces to retrieve the object.
Congkak or known as Mancala - is a generic name for a family of 2-player turn-based strategy board games played with small stones, beans, or seeds and rows of holes or pits in the earth, a board or other playing surface. The objective is usually to capture all or some set of the opponent's stones, beans, etc. Versions of the game have been played for at least hundreds of years around the world.
Wau & Kite - It is a bigger version of kite that we fly them in the sky.
There are many more traditional games which was once very popular before it is now being replaced by electronic games and gadgets.
The centre also aims to foster a creative environment where traditional artistry can flourish through immersive programmes such as the Wayang Kulit

Admission tickets to SeniKome are priced at RM8 for adults (RM7 for GRC members) and RM6 for children (RM5 for GRC members). There's also the family package priced at RM25 that allows entrance to two adults and two children.
Visitors can also enjoy food and drinks at the centre; the East Coast Art and Souvenir Shop not only offers gift options like fine textiles and pewter ware items—visitors can enjoy traditional dishes like the signature Nasi Kerabu or Keropok Lekor. Refreshing drinks are also served, the menu offering choices like pandan leaves, mint leaves, lemongrass, lime, honey and assam boi.
Overall, I really recommend this place to parents who were in this generation or at the end of this generation to bring your kids to learn what you have used to do in your childhood. Apart of that, do bring your foreign friends here to know something about Malaysia. This is the best place to provide such knowledge. Let the knowledge pass on from generation to generation and spread from countries to countries.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
