There is also a house-to-house visit session where all of our crew visits the villager’s houses individually. Before this session started, the villagers performed excellently as a welcoming activity. While visiting the houses, we help the villagers to clean the village area. What exciting memories! All of our crew participates in this community service. There is also a session where we distribute ‘duit Raya to the kids around the village.

The visit continued with a session helping the villagers prepare ‘slondok gelang’ for sale. For information ‘slondok gelang’. You can say that this is a cracker made from cassava. However, it is vastly different from pothil or geblek. It is crunchy and savory and usually has a unique flavoring. Traditionally, slondok only has a salty and spicy flavor. However, you can enjoy slondok with balado, cheese, and original taste.
