Banting Not The Only Attraction

By Stuart Michael

BANTING, a town in the district of Kuala Langat, Selangor, has a laid-back lifestyle and offers good food, reasonably-priced shopping and has a rich history. Situated on the banks of Sungai Langat, the town, with a population of about 50,000, has many attractions and one of them is a good place to shop for textiles.

 

The Indah Pesona Textile godown at Wisma MDKL is popular for its low-priced baju kurung and curtains. If you love saris and Punjabi suits, go to Jalan Pekan Banting. There you will find many items from India and the biggest of the shops is called Harekrishna. After watching the beautiful sunset at Morib beach, treat your family to a hearty meal as a whole stretch of stalls selling everything from satay to sotong and ikan bakar comes alive at night. On Sundays, there is a karaoke session with a small price of RM2 per song. Historically, the beach was a landing point for the British and Indian liberation forces during World War II.

 

Nature lovers can go jungle-trekking in the forest reserve at Bukit Jugra. Before reaching the peak, a lighthouse stands guard to guide vessels plying the Straits of Malacca. The view from the peak is breathtaking, so don’t forget to bring along a camera. Bukit Jugrah used to be called Parcelar Hill — derived from the Arabic word balasar, which means “above the head”.

 

Visitors should not miss the prominent Kanchong Darat landmark which is the Sidek residence belonging to Datuk Sidek Abdullah Kamar, the father of the Sidek badminton brothers. The brothers’ eldest sister stays there now, but visitors who wish to see the house are always welcome.

 

Before reaching Bukit Jugra, visitors will come across Makam Sultan Abdul Samad, the resting place of Sultan Abdul Samad Almarhum Raja Abdullah. He reigned as the Sultan of Selangor from 1857 to 1898. During his reign, Selangor saw its only civil war, which came to be known as the Klang War.

Banting town is also famous for its rojak mee and cendol. According to locals, the best rojak mee, which is pasembur and yellow noodles with five different curries, can be found at Restoran Tawaqal. The restaurant, run by a family of Indian Muslims from India, has been at Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad since 1941. Only two cendol stalls are worth mentioning here.

 

Both can be found along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad — one in front of the old Lido cinema, which uses the traditional method to shave the ice, and the other in front of the KFC restaurant. Istana Bandar is historical as the fifth Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah, built the royal palace in 1905.

 

It was the birth place of Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the 11th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who died in office. The palace is open daily to the public. Admission is free. Visiting hours are from 8am to 6pm. For those who want fresh fish, Kampung Endah fishing village is the spot to visit. Fishermen can be seen unloading their catch or mending broken nets here. There is a Chinese restaurant in the area and patrons can ask the restaurant to cook the fish for you.

 

Another popular tourist spot is Fazz Enterprise Kerepek House located at Kanchong Darat which offers 75 different traditional crackers and kuih. It is owned by the Mahmuddin Abas family which grows its own tapioca, banana and oil palm to make the snacks. The family also owns a small shop selling furniture made from Indonesian Jati wood.

 

Pantai Kelanang is a new tourist spot in Banting. Unlike Morib beach, which is a hive of activity, it is quite serene here. With a white sandy beach nestled behind mangrove trees, it is a place to relax and enjoy the peace and calm. To get to this beach, take the same road to Morib beach. After Tongkah, signboards have been placed to guide visitors. Banting town has suddenly captured the attention of all Malaysians and for the first time people all over the country are talking about it.

 

It did not even get so much of attention even when the Sidek brothers, who come from Kampung Olak Lempit not far from Banting town, were winning honours on the national and international front during their heyday. The town is located 32km from Klang and 20km from the KL International Airport (KLIA). 

 

The townspeople are as stunned as the rest of the nation over the brutal killing of millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya along with three others.The mood is sombre in Banting and the people were devastated, finding it difficult to believe such a ruthless crime took place in their area. Inevitably, the news of the murder and arrests had been the talking point in coffee shops, offices and schools especially over the past two days. StarMetro made a check around Banting town and found life continues to go on at a slow pace.

 

It resembles the usual set up of a small town which is mostly filled with double-storey shophouses. The visit also found that there were not many people out and about in the town which appeared rather quiet compared with normal days.The shops including restaurants and retail outlets were rather empty. The people seemed to have come to terms with the frequent appearance of police vehicles, journalists and photographers in town. Anthony Paul, 47, said Banting attracted a lot of attention from people all over the country. He said the news reports had also placed the town in a bad light.

 

SNACK FOOD

A snack is a portion of food oftentimes smaller than that of a regular meal, that is generally eaten between meals. Snacks come in a variety of forms including packaged and processed foods and items made from fresh ingredients at home.

Traditionally, snacks were prepared from ingredients commonly available in the home. Often leftovers, sandwiches made from cold cuts, nuts, fruit, and the like were used as snacks. The Dagwood sandwich was originally the humorous result of a cartoon character's desire for large snacks. Beverages, such as coffee, are not generally considered snacks though they may be eaten between meals like a snack, or along with snack foods. A beverage may be considered a snack if it possesses a substantive food item (e.g., strawberries, bananas, kiwis) that has been blended to create a smoothie.

Plain snacks like plain cereals, pasta and vegetables are also mildly popular, and the word snack has often been used to refer to a larger meal involving cooked or leftover items. Six-meal eating is a form of eating that interjects healthy snacks in between small meals, to stave off hunger and promote weight loss.

With the spread of convenience stores, packaged snack foods are now a significant business. Snack foods are typically designed to be portable, quick and satisfying. Processed snack foods are designed to be less perishable, more durable, and more portable than prepared foods. They often contain substantial amounts of sweeteners, preservatives, and appealing ingredients such as chocolate, peanuts, and specially-designed flavors (such as flavored potato chips). A snack eaten shortly before going to bed or during the night may be called a midnight snack.

CRACKER FOOD

A cracker is a baked good commonly made from grain flour dough and typically made in quantity in various hand-sized or smaller shapes. Flavorings or seasonings, such as salt, herbs, seeds, and/or cheese, may be added to the dough or sprinkled on top before baking. Crackers are a nutritious and ready to eat way to use a staple food or cereal grain that is advantageous for storage and travel. A precedent for the modern cracker can be found in nautical ship biscuits, military hardtack, and sacramental bread. Ancestors of the cracker can be found in ancient flatbreads, such as lavash, pita, matzo, flatbrød, and crisp bread. Asian analogues include chapati and senbei.
