[Explore] SeniKome Peng Heng @ Resorts World Genting


Genting Highlands, July 2017 – It was a great exploration weekend last week as our team gets to explore the new features in Resorts World Genting such as SeniKome Peng Heng as well as a 36 hours food trail whereby we take the opportunity to try out the different food outlets here in Genting.

Resorts World Genting has been the favourite tourism spot for most people for its known entertainment forte. This time around, Resorts World Genting also provided limelight over culture and arts with the existence of SeniKome.

East Coast Arts & Cultural Centre! Let’s get to know our own unique cultures!
SeniKome is The East Coast Arts & Culture Centre which will provide a better insight for the visitors regarding the various traditional art forms, especially visual and performing arts from the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia from July to September 2017.



One of the highlights is Joget Gamelan, a classical dance that originated in the courts of Riau and Lingga in the 17th century. It is a very popular dance in Pahang and Terengganu. Today, 33 Gamelan dances are still in practice including Timan Burung, Ayak-ayak and Togok Rompin.








Silk screen painting, also known as serigraphy or silkscreening, also comes to the fore at the centre located on Level 3 of First World Plaza in the coming months. The painting is believed to have taken root some 1,000 years ago in China, it is considered among the most versatile of all printing processes.

SeniKome is also a treat for the traditional art enthusiasts as different art forms are showcased every weekend for the following 2 months. Starting the ball rolling is a demo on Batik Canting on the weekend of 29 and 30 July. Visitors will get to witness the beauty of batik-making, a technique of hand-dyeing fabrics by using wax as a dye repellent.

Apart from that, silk screen painting will be in the limelight at the centre on 26 and 27 August, while a watercolour painting demo will be held on 31 August and 1 September.

Joget Gamelan is the main highlight on 2 and 3 September, a demo on sketching on 9 and 10 September, pottery on 16 and 17 September, and a weaving demo from 22 to 24 September.

The splendours of the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia—the states of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan—lie at the heart of SeniKome. The focus of the centre SeniKome is the thematic displays of art and culture from these states. SeniKome, which means “our art” in the Pahang local dialect, is indeed dedicated to promoting the beauty of the east coast's local craft, fashion, games, food and music.







Another target of the centre is to foster a creative environment where traditional artistry can flourish through immersive programmes such as the Wayang Kulit and Batik displays that are coming up.

There is also an experiential area for various traditional games; this is where visitors can participate in Congkak and Batu Seremban. Visitors can also enjoy food and drinks at the centre; the East Coast Art and Souvenir Shop not only offers gift options like fine textiles and pewter ware items—visitors can enjoy traditional dishes like the signature Nasi Kerabu or Keropok Lekor. Refreshing drinks are also served, the menu offering choices like pandan leaves, mint leaves, lemongrass, lime, honey and assam boi.

















For those who loves to read, there's also a Reading Corner at the centre. In addition, visitors can also join the guided tours that are held three times daily.

Admission tickets to SeniKome are priced at RM8 for adults (RM7 for GRC members) and RM6 for children (RM5 for GRC members). There's also the family package priced at RM25 that allows entrance to two adults and two children.

Personally, for a person who has spent 5 years studying in Kelantan, 1 year working in Pahang, I felt that this centre is a great place of exploration for those who have yet to experience the greatness in the East Coast States. This is definitely a spot to visit the next time you come up to Resorts World Genting!
