    A simple component called the sawdust. This technology, called "bioconverting technology" helps farmers to fight starvation and poverty in times of need. The steps of growing mushrooms is one that needs the farmer to follow certain strict but proven procedures.

    First, the subtrate comprising of sawdust, wheat bran and other materials are placed in plastic bags. They will then go through a steaming process to sterilise the subtrate. Once it is done, the bags are then left to cool. Spores will then be placed into the bags and they will then be left to grow.

    Freshly Plucked Mushrooms

    by Aidy_p Updated Apr 2, 2008

    One of our very first stops was to a home of a villager who not only prepared a scrumptous kampung breakfast for us, but also showed us how they sustain a living by growing mushrooms.

    Though a small cottage industry, the set-up was by no means scrumpy. The location of their buildings have been well thought out, and they even have a pretty big shed to provide shelter to these growing mushrooms.

    Check Out the kuih ketayap

    Food is central to Asians. Talk about food and you can get a conversation going for a long time. Part of the food selection are the many pastries on offer. My group had the opportunity to try something called kuih (read as Kuay) ketayap.

    The green skin of the kuih ketayap wraps around the coconut gratings that has been sweetened with palm sugar. Tasted really great.

    Misty Road Leading To The Kampong

    by Aidy_p Updated Mar 30, 2008

    I'm usually quite adverse to the idea of going for an organised tour. But I've learnt that there are merits in doing so though.

    Many times, we do not visit the small towns because we are either in the hurry to reach our bigger Malaysian destinations such as Malacca and Kuala Lumpur, or that we are just not too sure of what we can do in these small towns. That is where a tour guide can come in.

    With all the prior research done, the tour guide brought us to Kempas in Johor, Malaysia. We reached the kampong (or Malay village) at about 8.30am. The ground was just warming up and the misty road into the kampong seemed to have brought us into another world, a world of bliss. Totally lovely.
