Kampung Mengkuang Titi, Seberang Perai.



Kampung Mengkuang Titi (GPS: 5.41405, 100.49175) is a small Malay kampung in Mengkuang, in Bukit Mertajam, Seberang Perai. It is located about 25 km from Butterworth, not too far from the Mengkuang Dam. The name "Mengkuang" refers to the pandanus plant, whose serrated leaves are used for weaving mats. It is one of the villages in Penang on the Homestay programme.

The village of Mengkuang Titi has a population of about 800, and still retains the rustic feel ideal for the development of agricultural and cottage industries. As such, it was selected for the Mengkuang Titi Homestay. The homestay programme is intended to uplift the living standards of the rural community. Through this programme, visitors get to stay with host families and get to know their way of life. The guests get the chance to engage in the agricultural activities such as paddy planting or picking fruits from the trees.

I was actually a bit surprised when I visited the Mengkuang Titi Homestay. I had expected nothing more than a cluster of rural village houses. Instead, I saw that the government has created a "sample village". This is located along Jalan Penanti (aka Penang State Route P119).
