Dusun1

A resort built in a durian plantation in Negeri Sembilan, about an hour or so drive from Kuala Lumpur. There are 4 houses for rent, namely Berembun, Tembusu, Emas and Sora house and a swimming pool. They are currently building one more house and a bigger swimming pool. Priced RM250 – RM1100 per night varies from house to house and weekday/weekend. One thing to note is this place is not in GPS, basically have to drive further from a dead-end indicated in the GPS map.

Above are us preparing to start our road trip to The Dusun

There is a “curfew” for The Dusun for security reasons, i think 8pm, so make sure to come back before then else have to call the landlord to open the gate.

Dusun34

Making soya pudding

Dusun35

Making sweet potato which is bleh and not tasty enough

Recipe: Deep Fried Sweet Potato Balls

1st attempt: 230g orange sweet potato; 50g glutinuous flour; 50g rice flour; 60g sugar syrup; 30g water

2nd attempt: 500g golden yellow sweet potato; 100g rice flour, 150g sugar syrup; 30g water

Note: Sugar syrup made from boiling 1 packet of rock cane sugar(230g) with 460g water

1st attempt is slightly sticky and soft within, second attempt doesn’t tasted glutinuously sticky due to only rice flour was used and more sweet potato taste.

I really like Petaling Street deep fried sweet potato balls, will try to buy white coloured sweet potato and try again.
