Kebun Mangga Harumanis Wan Pa, Perlis

May 30, 2023 0

Right after checking in, we didn't delay further. We went to Sadiah Cafe for dinner and we were quite early. 

So we decided to visit the Kebun Mangga Harumanis Wan Pa right opposite Sadiah Cafe that you can just walk over in 10 minutes. We saw some guests and staff that actually was enjoying their evening walks/jog along the paddy field there. 

I love how the entire area is just so beautifully and naturally designed for a very memorable homestay experience. And this is definitely the next place I will want to visit with my kids during the mango season (April-June).


We said we will be back and we were. We came here during the mid term school holidays and my kids enjoyed every moment of nature! Nature to the maxima!

We were greeted by the beauty of nature, the lizards, the "tokek" lizard aka gecko atleast 3 different types greeted us. Then a few variation of lipas (roaches) from the paddy field also passed by us. The moth greeted us in full blown at the light next to the door when we open to go toilet. Hence why we avoid going toilet after midnight, because it is outside. OUTSIDE! But it's fun. I screamed but still fun.

I screamed in the shower, I screamed going to the toilet, I screamed in the room. Screamed because nature surprised me, so I excited until scream la. But only short while, I got used to it, thank God. I screamed on behalf of my kids and then shrugged it off when they looked at me, they almost freaked out ahahahaha I had to do emotional control and steady okay. That's my challenge lolx.

And I found out, it's normal. All KL people come here sure scream first hahahaha. The good news is flying roaches here are small and not big. But spray is provided in the rooms. Apart from the fun of nature, we also enjoyed the view. My kids for the first time in years, woke up midnight to pee, got out from the bed, looked at the door to the back and then climb back on bed to sleep. They didn't pee in bed, so good la. Must go nature more, train them better hahahaaha!

There's no sound proof, so middle of the night if you hearing knocking on the house is because it's wood la, hot and cold will make the material expand and etc. Then when wind blow sure la the blinds at Rumah Sadiah opposite will hit against the railing. Not to forget, the frogs will be happily hopping around. My husband woke up early for his morning run, opened door to the toilet and the toad greeted him at the stairs, so he skipped the morning toilet and just go and run la. 

I also had a good chat on the 2nd night with the lizards, thankfully got mosquito net over our bed, if not it probably shat on my head, cos it was right above my head as I was telling it to go out and talk la... They walked to the edge of the roof and talked. It was behind my head, haiyo... And I-kid-you-not, these lizards talk louder than me ok... Can hear them over the phone! They literally eavesdrop on my conversation and responds accordingly. So advanced!

The pool was not cold, water just nice because the weather was hot. However, thankfully we were near the mountain so sometimes the wind blows the cloud over and it will just rain once in awhile. One night it rained so heavy, we all thought what happens if flood le? But no la, it's all in our imagination la. My mom said the rain rumbled so loud and not sharp but very loud like it's just next to us. The thunder and lightning also sound different here compared to KL wei! That's why u must come experience all these! Cannot buy back these experiences.

Will we be back again? Yes.

Why? Because fun.
But? Will stay at another rumah for a change, rumah Wan Pa was the oldest and a traditional home that is worth experiencing once. We love how authentic it is and really bring us right in nature, not close to nature, immediately in touch with nature. It's a love-hate with the creepy crawlies but I feel it's still better than camping in the jungle.

Oh, did we mention that our home was just next to the paddy field/bendang? So the slugs and leeches were behind on the floor at the toilet, my mom had fun kicking them away and stepping on some. Apparently, if you step on them, they don't die. So ya, it was fun lolx!

Breakfast here at the rooftop is the best la, above Rumah Sadiah. But don't go there if got someone staying downstairs, because they can hear your every footsteps. Breakfast buffet at Sadiah Cafe just a 3 minute walk is also very famous until sold out by 8ish am. Because rm2 per pax, you can have nasi lemak, toast, western choices, it's worth it!

@sebrinahyeo The best mango ever! Harumanis Perlis from @Kebun Mangga Harumanis Wan Pa Super juicy, meaty, sweet and succulent! Makes you ask for more! This is why we came back here again because I know they wont disappoint! #traveloguemalaysia #perlis #mangga #mangoperlis #harumanis ♬ original sound - Sebrinah Yeo

But the main highlight here is also their Harumanis mangoes that is in season but running low in stock. If you want the real harumanis, please come here during April-June, call them before coming. 

It is juicy, meaty and you will definitely ask for more! Harumanis can only be grown here in Perlis, among the many states in Malaysia, only Perlis can have such delicacies real, authentic on its own. Don't be fooled by the OEM ones and those from Thailand. Get the real mango deal here, serious.

Get Educated And Be Certified As The First Ever Durex Expert!

May 23, 2023 0

Yes! You heard that right. Durex is schooling youth on the ins and outs of intimacy and staying safe to address the rise in sexual activity.

With the rise in sexual activity amongst youths in Malaysia, Durex, the world’s #1 sexual well-being brand, is taking bold steps in providing a safe platform where young Malaysians can learn and find the right information and facts about sexual health at the first ever Durex Academy.

Based on the survey conducted in 2022, the average age of Gen Z’s first intercourse experience is between 15 and 22 years old. 1 in 3 believe that sex shown in pornography is normal sex and alarmingly, 31% did not know that a woman could get pregnant the first time she engages in sex. Almost 40% believe the myth that STIs are only transmitted through penetrative sex and more than 1 out of 5 youth have sexted* before (*sent a provocative text or lewd photo). These findings initiated the Durex #COMETOGETHER campaign which focused on helping young Malaysians speak out and learn about sex through an enjoyable, safe and reliable platform and drive conversations around the subject matter without fear or stigma.

The Durex Academy, which is an extension of the #COMETOGETHER initiative, now takes that same objective to the next level. Aimed at cultivating safe and healthy intimate practices, encouraging more open conversations around sex and destigmatising myths and taboos surrounding sexuality education, Durex Academy is a continuous effort to address the survey findings by breaking it down into learning modules covering three main syllabuses. 

Kicking-off with Ms. Puiyi earlier in the month, the campaign will feature an online semester covering three main syllabus which are Let’s Warm Up, #ComeTogether Prepared and Sexy Facts 101. Each syllabus has been designed to address misconceptions and educate young Malaysians on accurate and enlightening information about sex, health and pleasurable safety. The segments will cover topics such as consent and bodily autonomy; sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention; and communication and relationship skills. Making it even more interactive are the Masterclass video sessions conducted by Durex Academy lecturers Daphne Iking, Alex Chee and Alvy Joanna.

As an added bonus, students of Durex Academy will also receive a personalised e-certificate and a mystery gift once they have completed the S-Level exams online, and be empowered with better knowledge, understanding, and the confidence to make informed decisions about their bodies, relationships, and overall well-being.

“We recognise that there is a genuine need to equip Malaysian youth with the right information about sex. Sex education is the compass that empowers individuals to navigate the complex terrain of relationships, intimacy, and personal well-being. It illuminates the path towards informed choices, consent, and responsible decision-making, fostering a society where knowledge conquers ignorance and respect triumphs over fear,” commented Jerome Goh (Marketing Manager, Durex Malaysia)

The Durex Academy will also be running on-ground workshops in colleges and universities in the Klang Valley in collaboration with SPOT Malaysia, a comprehensive sexuality education provider whose vision is to help young people become confident and resilient in making informed decisions for their well-being.

To launch the initiative, Durex Academy hosted an Open Day which featured interactive educational exhibits, introductions of the ‘online lecturers’ and a panel discussion with certified sexologist, Andrea Koh and SPOT Malaysia founder, Siti Aishah. The constructive dialogue touched on real-life issues that youths struggle with, barriers that are preventing progress around this topic and the evolving sexual trends of today.

“Sex education is a powerful tool. It dismantles ignorance, dispels myths, and fosters a culture of consent, respect, and healthy sexual expression. By embracing comprehensive sex education, we pave the way for a future where individuals are equipped to navigate their own sexual journey with wisdom, compassion, and the freedom to embrace their authentic selves,” added Goh.

Durex has been committed in supporting more knowledgeable reproductive healthcare and raising awareness of protection worldwide through the establishment of effective sexual health initiatives. The Durex Academy is part of that commitment and aims to increase young people's knowledge and improve their attitudes related to sexual and reproductive health and behaviours.
