What you'll do

We will guide guest around the land, a rubber tapper will show how rubber trees are tapped, then you will get to try it yourself. We will show the equipments used to tap rubber trees and the condition the rubber tapper had to endure (they tap very early in the morning). Guests will get to see rubber seedlings (and take it home) and the games that kids played with it during the olden days. More than one guest have taken home seedlings from the rubber trees, leaf, even the hardened milk from the rubber trees as souvenirs.

After playing around with what a rubber tree can give you, you'll get to enjoy some organic vegetables served with other local dishes in Tiffin lunch boxes from local restaurants around the area. The lunch is from a local restaurant which are known to be patronised by locals with dishes called masak lemak cili api (spicy coconut gravy), fried free range chicken and yummy organic local vegetables picked fresh.

During lunch we will regale the guests about how rubber was brought to Malaysia, the current rubber industry in Malaysia and around the world. If you are lucky Puan Azimah the matriarch of the family will be joining us and tell how she came to won the land.

We can accommodate if we don't schedule the experience on the calendar. Message us!
Other things to note

We are Khairul and Nani, a cat-loving couple who live at this 10-acre land where we maintain one of the last remaining small-holding plantation area with rubber trees, palm-oil trees and a fish pond. This experience is handled by Nani who will guide the guest to our place, show around the compound and prepare the food. She is quite well-versed with the history of rubber trees and the industry in Malaysia.

We travel so we usually compare notes on the places we have been to while entertaining guests to whatever is available (sometimes there are local fruits).

Where you'll be

The whole place is at a 10-acre plantation in Sepang, 14 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The place has hammocks and organic farm with an outdoor open kitchen where meals are cooked over fire like in the olden days unless it is raining where we'll eat the library.

Our land is in a Malaysian village with plantation lining the street but near convenience such as highways and trains.

If you are in transit we have a cabin for you

We had a wonderful afternoon with our hosts — it was the perfect chance to escape the city, enjoy the countryside and let our little one run free on the farm. Great to learn about the rubber tapping and to try it out, as well as enjoy delicious local lunch! Hope to come back when the fruit trees ripen :)

Had a wonderful visit - It is quite something tapping into a rubber tree with your own hands, and racing against time to get it to flow properly into the bucket! Thank you for making us feel so welcome... and for sharing the many wonderful stories. Hope to visit again some time!

My husband and I had a great time at PUDGI farm and trying our hands to tap the rubber ourselves. Nani, who led the tour has good knowledge not just on rubber trees, but also of other trees and vegetations they had at the farm. Khairul, Nani and not forgetting Khairul's mom and their staff are warm and friendly and they were with us all along the entire duration. As someone from a hospitality background, I love the little touches - the mosquito coil they provided to be worn on our neck/ waist, mosquito repellent spray, wide straw hat, a welcome drink and small bottle of mineral water let me know that they take hospitality seriously. The meal served was DELICIOUS. I really wanted to gobble up everything, but I held back fearing post-meal sleepiness :D. I'll definitely recommend this trip to my friends and family members!
