HPPNK 2017 Hari Peladang Malaysia Food Fest MAEPS Serdang Selangor

There are a lot of activities and learning experience in this year HPPNK 2017 Hari Peladang Malaysia Food Fest happening at MAEPS Serdang from 28th September 2017 to 1st October 2017 10.00am to 10.00pm.

Guest and trade visitors will be able to look for business opportunities in the agricultural sector. Ranging from farm equipment to seedlings and right to the final food product, there is definitely a lot to start with.

Families will be able to join in this HPPNK 2017 festivities while learning and to be able to guide their young on the importance of agriculture industry as a job and business opportunities.

One of the things that we learn today is the availability of laughing chicken (Ayam Ketawa). Yes, apparently this species from Indonesia origin of chicken makes sounds that mimic a person laugh. 

Too bad when we were there it did not crow probably due to the large crowd at the booth (but the above is a video depicting a similar Ayam Ketawa).

There are also petting zoo for you to really get up close to these farms animals.

The second thing is the Stingless Bees Honey, last year at MAHA 2016, we tasted it fresh from the nest. You can check it out at this link. But, this year they serve us this honey with a texture similar to a salmon roe, where you can pop it in your mouth with a bursting sourish sweet natural taste of this honey.

You can also try out a new product which is Virgin Coconut Oil

And the last exciting avenues is on our last stop at the Food Empayar which I will run thru some of the delicious fare on offer. But for now, some of the other highlights include a cooking demonstration by Celebrity Chef. We only have gotten to see the Chef At Pacific West in action.

Next, we visit the Pineapple booth which showcases its prized pineapples which is MD2 species. This species is a sweet tasting hybrid that is now planted all over Malaysia. Recent research has yielded from the juice to become extract that is Bromelain.

There are also the King of Fruits store where you can taste the D24 and Musang King varieties that are on sales there. While you are there you can also taste the new durian based food like ice cream and more.

or you can buy some fruits plants on your way home.

Agrobazzar is another stop that you must visit, as there are many Malaysian made food products that are available for you to taste and to buy home.

Examples of these are the Asam Boi Kedondong

Ready-made food 

While you can also taste the flavourful Tuna satay which has the texture of the chicken but a healthier option.

Bird Nest

Other interesting things to do is the contest where you guess the weight of the Lembu Sado with RM20,000.00 prizes to be won.

Or you can guess the number of fruits in this jackfruits

or you can take part in the cooking competition to show your cooking prowess

But for me, the most important one that must not be missed are the loads and loads of food to be eaten at the Food Empayar

starting with Grilled Chicken

Grilled Fish

Fusion Burgers

Cendol Songkok Tinggi

Durian Crepes

Char Kway Teow Food Truck

All-in-all, it has been a super fun and eye-opening experience for everyone at the HPPNK 2017. There are some much things for you to see, watch, explore and taste (many free-tasting booths). New technology, new concept and new inventions are all for us to check out this HPPNK 2017! as the vision of Pertanian adalah Perniagaan - Agriculture is Business.
