SeniKome Peng Heng Resorts World Genting: East Coast Arts & Cultural Centre Visit
In the meantime, let's have a little culture and artsy post first. Culture and the arts are given prominence at SeniKome Peng Heng in Resorts World Genting—and reflecting this is a series of activities that will be held in the coming months. We managed to schedule in a short break to pay a visit at SeniKome Peng Heng which highlights East Coast traditional visual and performing arts. The Cultural Centre is located right next to Food Factory which I also reviewed the last time I had a staycation in Resorts World Genting.

From July to September, you will be able to really submerge yourself in your Malaysian roots with the amazing exhibition in the East Coast Arts & Cultural Centre. One of the highlights is the Joget Gamelan, a classical dance that originated in the 17th century and specifically popular in Pahang and Terengganu.
I had my experience living in the East Coast, in particular Kelantan when I was undergoing my Degree so stepping into this Arts & Cultural Centre brought back memories and also allowed me to learn more about the heritage of Malaysia.
