Getting to Know Mandailing Tribe at Bougainvillae Homestay

Homestay is always interesting. I went to stay in homestays a couple of times with Papa and Mummy and I like them very much. The most recent homestay we visited is Bagasta Bougainvillae Homestay. It is nearby my home, somewhere in Gombak.

This homestay is run by Mandailing people. And they are very big on culture.

Check out my video. One day with Mandailing people. It is very interesting.

The rice is for sharing. I just ate the chicken. It is very tasty.

The Mandailing people are very interesting. I really like them. They are very friendly and during lunch, they keep ask me if I want more food. I was very happy.
