Sekinchan Malaysia: Paddy Field and Temple (Part 1/2)

I was invited to see Sekinchan by my friend who’s in the mood for videography, so I packed my camera and swayed out the door for a day close to nature.

Sekinchan is a peaceful place with locals seem living a simple life, simple yet abundant. It is one of Malaysia’s primary rice producers. The vast rice field was overwhelming and the fresh air just made me feel that I indeed escaped from the city. My skin was loving the morning sun rays  while the birds’ chirping sound was like music to my ears. Join me as I treat my eyes with blue and green in the beauty of Sekinchan!

Travel Time: Our driving time went on 1 hour and 20 minutes to be exact. Approximately the same travel time if the starting point is from Kuala Lumpur.
What to bring: We went there on a real hot sunny day, so I suggest you bring sunglasses, hat and a bottle of water.
What to wear: Being on a hot season, I suggest you wear thin clothing. I wore a not so thick clothing of long sleeve which I folded halfway up my elbow. My black legging was also comfortable as it protected my legs from possible itchy feeling since there are grasses and plants all over. Short is also fine if you happen to bumped into a deep muddy surface.
Where to eat: Don’t worry as you will never run out of place to eat. If you’re driving your own car, just roam a bit around the area and you’ll find a mamak/food store. We stopped by an ordinary mamak store which offers good food at a cheap price. You can also spot fruit stands randomly along the way.

We found a nearby temple with serene atmosphere. Don’t forget to remove your sleepers before going inside, it is to show respect. The caretaker stays outside who sells incense and other Chinese stuff I don’t have much knowledge about. My friend bought some and the old man guided us, the old man lit the incense up and my friend began the prayer.  Besides being a religious place, I was amazed with some art forms inside the temple.

          1. Well, yellow was frequent, but as I went back I saw some very nice greens and blues. (And you had great light, which is a photographer’s blessing) 🙂

    1. Oh I really do love it! It’s a place I could sit and write. It’s a place you would like to wake up and get a hot cup of coffee. I wish I have a nipa hut in the middle of the fields lol.
