SeniKome Peng Heng : Where cultural exploration and inspiration comes together
ART & CULTURAL EXPO | SENIKOME PENG HENG @ RWG (RESORTS WORLD GENTING)
Where cultural exploration and inspiration comes together, the SeniKome Peng Heng, East Coast Arts & Cultural Centre is the place to go. Located at Level 3 of First World Plaza, just a stone’s throw away from Food Factory, the centre features a thematic showcase ofart and cultural essences from Peninsular Malaysia’s East Coast states; namely Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan.
This East Coast Arts & Cultural Centre will highlight various traditional art forms, specifically visual and performing arts from the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia from July to September, inclusive Joget Gamelan, a classical dance that originated in the courts of Riau and Lingga in the 17th century. It became popular specifically in Pahang and Terengganu, and today 33 Gamelan dances are still in practice including Timan Burung, Ayak-ayak and Togok Rompin.
SeniKome Peng Heng : Silk Screen Painting
Silk screen painting, also known as serigraphy or silkscreening, also comes to the fore at the centre in the coming months. Believed to have taken root some 1,000 years ago in China, it is considered among the most versatile of all printing processes.
Traditional art enthusiasts may want to pay a visit to the centre the two months when different art forms are showcased every weekend. 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.
Following 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. Thematic displays of art and culture from these states are the focus of the centre. SeniKome, which means “our art” in the Pahang local dialect, is indeed dedicated to promote the beauty of the east coast’s local craft, fashion, games, food and music.
The centre also aims 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.

Enjoy Food and Drinks at SeniKome Peng Heng
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 also enjoy traditional dishes like the signature Nasi Kerabu, Mee Siam, Bubut Cha Cha or Keropok Lekor.
Signature Nasi Kerabu
Rice is steamed in blue water extracted from pea flower (locally known as ‘bunga telang’), served with herbs and raw veggies (otherwise known as ‘ulam’), grated coconut, fish floss, salted duck egg and topped with a spoonful of rich ‘sambal tumis’ (turmeric and coconut sambal).
Local version of rolled fish cracker originated from Terengganu which commonly served with chili sauce. This really makes the perfect finger-bites!
