  • Pineapple Museum - How Does it Grow?

    The "country pumpkin" in me took a big step forward after realising how pineapples are being grown. Previously, I thought that they grow within the soil, like how potatoes would grow. But I was so wrong. It actually grows above ground and there are just so many different types of pineapples.

  • Pineapple Museum - There's More To...

    It was already amazing that pineapples could be used in so many ways. One of my favourite tea time snack would be pineapple tarts. Chinese would usually have them during Chinese New Year. Going to the museum, I'd learnt that there was another use that we could have never imagined of, that the fibre from the leaves of the pineapples can be made into...

    This is a very important vehicle for the pineapple farmers. It has been designed specifically to ensure the ease of loading and unloading the pineapples. Also, the vehicle only has a plastic seat, modified from a plastic chair, and thus, can only take one seating passenger.

    There are a number of hawker staffs in the coffeshop... These includes stalls selling fried kuey teow, bak kut teh, curry laksa, noodle soup, chciken/duck rice etc... The shop also sells kaya buns, roti kaya and "pau"...

    Favorite Dish: We ordered the fried kueh teow and bak kut teh... They were good and the price is very cheap as compared to what we have to pay in bigger towns...

    by chiabh Updated May 8, 2007

    Like every small town in Malaysia, there is a wet market... The market is divided into several sections with separate stalls for vegetables, fruits, fish, meat (with halal and non-halal sections), chicken... There is also a section for selling dry day-to-day goods... And of course, no wet market will not come with a section for food...

    What to buy: It goes without saying that pineapple is the "must-buy" in pekan nanas... It is pineapple at its best... There are a number of cross-breeds such as the ever popular sarawak-johor species...

  • You Have To Taste This

    What's the point of visiting Pekan Nanas if you're not going to have a taste of the succulent pineapples? Understand from our guide that the sweetest of all pineapples in the plantation is the josepine. Sweet, luscious, juicy...ok, enough of that! Go try it, even if you're not a total pineapple lover like me.

Most of the modern barber shops are air-conditioned with electricial trimmers and modern appliances... And the higher-end shops are normally uni-sex and catered to both sexes...

    the waterfall thru a narrow gorge... 2 more images

    by chiabh Updated May 8, 2007

    The Gunung Pulai Recreation Park (or Hutan Lipur Gunung Pulai) is a beautiful waterfall with 2 cascades with the water falling down a narrow gorge... However, for whatever reasons, the park has been abandon... From the (derelict) carpark, it is just a short walk to the first cascade... The gate to the waterfall is still opened although no one goes to the waterfall anymore... The water of the waterfall is now muddy...

    It is certainly not recommended for anyone to go there anymore...
