News - Sarikei Agro-Tourism featured in Happenings

Happenings is a quarterly glossy magazine sponsored by the Sarawak Tourism Board. Thanks to reader Nelson for pointing this out. This article featured a pineapple plantation in Sarikei, across Nyelong River. Liong Poh Siong, the farm owner can be contacted at handphone +6 012-8815991 to book a tour at his seven-acre farm.

"The fruit bears testament to a true 'winner' in the agricultural sector. It contains sugar content of 17%, low acid and few pickles on its leaves. The fruits can be kept cool and has a long shelf life".

I read the article too and I was wondering the whereabouts of that pineapple farm. It should be aggressively promoted.

P/S: sarikei should not be just selling raw pineapples forever. It has great potentials yet to be explored (by sarikeians), we can make it into jams, tarts, cakes, juice, canned and many more. From that magazine too, which restaurant in sarikei provides pineapple fried rice (thai style)? none!

Nelson,
Agree. The Honolulu pineapple industry was doing well when I was there many years ago. This is despite that it's in the middle of the ocean.

Welcome to Justin and other new readers that may have come in via facebook thru comments I left on Anthonian, St Anne's and Sarikei groups.

Borneo Post has published my blog post on the ABC dessert. They will send me a copy this week. I have not seen a copy. I will post the pic at the ABC post when I receive it. They may use more of my blog posts if they expand the Central Corridor section statewide.
