For generations, it fed the central west coast of the peninsular with, not one, but two staples. Sekinchan, about a 2-1/2-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur along coastal trunk roads, throttles on two main economies: seafood and rice.

 

Its community is a study in contrasts. A riot of colours on fishing boats that dot the riverines...

... coexisting with the immensity and calmness of green ricefields.


During the wet season, the fields are a saturated green as they span across the horizon with linear irrigation lines running like aqueous strokes on the landscape.


Sekinchan may also ring a bell when you think IT. The area happens to be the birthplace of  Pua Khein-Seng, inventor of the raging mini, PenDrive. That, you can read more about here.
