The Guangxi Community in Bentong

Approximately 90% of the Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

In my previous posts, I have provided a concise introduction of Bentong and delved into some of the main historical and significant figures of the town. In this article, I am going to write about the Guangxi Chinese community of Bentong, touching on the trinity that is the pride of the Guangxi community — their unique story, their culinary culture, and the largest Chinese association in Bentong.

As mentioned previously, Bentong is one of the few towns in Malaysia which has a majority of Guangxi Chinese within the Chinese community. Based on the information I gathered from the Bentong Guangxi Association, it is estimated that around 75% of the Chinese population in Bentong can safely trace their ancestry back to Guangxi Province, China. Notably, about 90% of the Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

There are some theories as to why there is such a huge Guangxi community in Bentong. One explanation is that the Guangxi community filled the mining and manual labour job gap in the town. There are several possibilities as to why the Guangxi Chinese were mainly involved in manual labour, unlike the Hakkas and Hokkiens who were usually business owners. The most credible one, in my opinion, is that the Guangxi Chinese were “latecomers” amongst the waves of Chinese immigrants coming to Malaysia. This may be partly due to the fact that the Guangxi province did not possess any significant ports in the 19th Century, unlike its counterpart Guangdong.

Nevertheless, it suffices to say that the sheer perseverance and determination demonstrated by the forefathers of the Guangxi Chinese community in Bentong has, over the years, improved the social standing of the community as a whole. Today, the Guangxi Chinese community is seen as one of the most successful communities in the town, and Chinese of Guangxi ancestry are prevalent in almost every social and economic landscape of Bentong, from influential politicians to entrepreneurial businessmen.

 

The Story of the Guangxi Chinese

Although relatively small in number, the Guangxi Chinese people had the advantage of living in close proximity, geographically speaking, in certain regions of Malaysia. The area encompassing Bentong and Raub is one of the few areas in Peninsular Malaysia which is home to a significant community of Guangxi Chinese. As they were a minority even within the Chinese of Malaysia, the Guangxi people had to adapt and adopt some of the cultural influences of other communities. Hence, the Guangxi Chinese today share many cultural similarities with other Chinese clans in Bentong.

Historically, the Guangxi Chinese share many cultural and linguistic similarities with their eastern neighbours, Guangdong. In fact, for many years, the Chinese imperial government treated the Guangdong/Guangxi area as one administrative unit with the Viceroy of “Liangguang” (including modern Hainan, Guangdong and Guangxi provinces).  With the passage of time, the Guangxi people developed their own unique dialect, the ‘pinghua’ and cultural norms which differed from their counterparts in Guangdong. Thereafter, the modern Chinese government decided to recognise the distinct identity of the Guangxi Chinese and allowed for the establishment of a new separate Guangxi province in China.

In the late 19th Century, the rapid increase of opium imports into China disproportionately affected the southern provinces of Guangdong and Guangxi, as the port of Guangzhou was the first point of contact for opium imports. As a result, opium addiction in both provinces (and later across the rest of China) climbed drastically. The efforts of the imperial Qing government to enforce opium restrictions resulted in armed conflicts between China and the Western imperial powers led by the British Empire. The ensuing armed conflict inflicted even more hardship and suffering on the local people especially in the poorer southern provinces which had already been ravaged by the plague of opium addiction.

To escape abject poverty and hardship, many Guangxi Chinese emigrated to Southeast Asia. As many were illiterate and had little or no further education, they had to work in manual and menial jobs. This was exacerbated by the fact that the Guangxi Chinese were considered “latecomers” to Malaya and Bentong. The Chinese from other provinces had already established a foothold in Malaya decades before the Guangxi Chinese arrived. Hence, the Guangxi Chinese had few options but to work for Hokkien/Guangdong businessmen across Malaya.

Nevertheless, the spirit of kinsmanship between fellow Guangxi Chinese should not be underestimated, as organisations such as the Guangxi Chinese Association flourished in the years following their arrival. The Guangxi inhabitants of Malaya often assisted their fellow clan members settle in by providing financial and humanitarian assistance to the needy members of their community.

This spirit of kinsmanship was further strengthened during the ‘new villages’ communist era, as the British colonial government created closely-knit and tightly-monitored working class communities in Bentong, which comprised mostly of Guangxi Chinese. Today, although the days of communism have long passed, the new villages of Bentong remain a vibrant community where Guangxi Chinese live together in harmony with other Chinese communities in the town.

 

Guangxi Chinese Association

The Kwangsi Association Bentong

The Bentong Guangxi Chinese Association was formed in 1910 by a group of Guangxi Chinese immigrants. At the time, the Bentong Chinese community was divided according to geographical origins as, although they came from the same country, different regions of China often had different cultures and different dialects which made understanding each other difficult. Consequently, the Guangxi Chinese felt the need to form a fraternity which could provide a platform to support other members of the clan.

Over the years, the Bentong Guangxi Chinese Association has contributed greatly to the local community. Amongst others, the Association is an active contributor both monetarily and physically to the Bentong Chinese Town Hall, which was established to represent and improve the standards of living of all Chinese in Bentong. The Association has also been actively involved in charity-related events, especially in the funding of Chinese vernacular education.

Furthermore, in the early days of the 20th Century, the Association played a prominent role in standing up for the rights of indentured labourers. Previously, labourers were forced to enter into temporally structured unfree employment contracts. Subsequently, they were bound to work for a particular employer for a specific period of time. In many instances, these indentured labourers were exploited by their employers as they were not provided with stable jobs yet were not allowed to seek work elsewhere. Hence, in the absence of effective government intervention, the Guangxi Chinese Association played a pivotal role in standing up for the workforce.

 

Authentic Guangxi Cuisine

Bentong’s Guangxi cuisine is unique in the sense that it does not have much of a separate cultural identity. Due to the diverse demographic makeup of Bentong’s Chinese community, the local Guangxi cuisine has evolved to incorporate elements from other Chinese cuisines, rather than developing its own distinct flavour. Therefore, the Guangxi dishes of Bentong feature a unique combination of various flavours. These dishes can be considered heavy in taste, lightly spicy and delicately fragrant.

Visitors who try Bentong’s Guangxi cuisine will quickly notice a distinctive feature which they are unlikely to taste in other parts of Malaysia. Over the years, Bentong’s Guangxi Chinese have cultivated the habit of including chives in most dishes, especially in the famous meat-filled Bentong “Taufu Puff”. The inclusion of chives provides an entirely unique taste experience. In fact, many visitors make a special trip to Bentong for the Guangxi “Taufu Puff”.

One must also not forget to try the Guangxi boiled chicken (“Bai Zhan Ji”) which in itself isn’t Guangxi in origin, but the signature sauce which is served on the side with the chicken makes it incredibly delicious. The mixture of chives and Bentong ginger in the sauce complements the soft and smooth texture of the boiled chicken. In fact, I have received feedback that some visitors can finish a bowl of rice accompanied only by the boiled chicken and the signature sauce!

Conclusion

The Guangxi Chinese community have come a long way and have created opportunities out of nothing. Throughout their years in Bentong, the community never believed that they were victims of luck and circumstance. Instead, they worked cooperatively with other Bentong communities and dedicated themselves to contributing towards the economy.

Over time, the Guangxi Chinese were able to turn a desert into an oasis by achieving success after success in their community’s development. In fact, the Guangxi people of today are one of the most successful communities in Bentong, producing successful people in every strata of society.

    Bentong is mainly populated by Chinese from Guangxi province in China. Perting new village is the oldest and biggest among the first to set up those days back . Its situated next to the Bentong town across the Bentong river. There is nothing much to offer place of interest except it is a food haven for many and the Kechara Forest Retreat ( KFR) which near there. One could go for the variaties of foods and visiting KFR. The Bentong tou fu pok or bean curd and its ginger is what the town or new village Perting has offer. The Chinese from Guangxi have a long history coming into Bentong with mining activities.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Lenard Hu for this wonderful sharing.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    When the 16th Karmapa went to attend the opening ceremony of a new Kagyu and Nyingma monastery called Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling in Nepal, he saw a statue of Dorje Drolo stepping on a figure of a monk who looked similar to Dorje Shugden. The 16th Karmapa was very upset of this depiction of Dorje Drolo as it was not the correct iconography so he ordered this statue to be removed immediately. At the same time, he also made a prophecy that in future people will have to rely on Dorje Shugden.

    Wow, this is so nice to see so many people from all around the world getting connected with Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri, he is an enlightened being who we can take refuge in. We can chant his mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA daily for protection.

    Just because I don’t agree with the Dalai Lama does not make me a bad person

    And does everyone need to agree with the Dalai Lama anyway? He may be the de-facto head of Tibetan Buddhism but he is not my Guru. Its my Guru who gave me the precious Dharma and practices, the Dalai Lama did not. In fact he gave up his Guru and broke his samaya with his Guru who so compassionately taught him and instigated the escape out of Tibet to save his life. Is that gratefulness?? When will the Dalai Lama lift the ban on authentic enlightened Dorje Shugden and restore unity?

    A Sad State of Affairs

    So we already know about the recent self-created scandals that the CTA are currently dealing with, but these scandals are just the tip of the iceberg. All is not well in the Tibetan settlements and the CTA has worked hard to keep it under wraps, fearful that the international community may stop financially supporting an administration that has failed their people so badly.

    The latest version of Tsem Rinpoche’s biography is done so well, especially the ebook, we can flip it like a real book. Thank you Rinpoche for making the ebook available for us to read for free. I like this biography because there are many photos so it is not boring to read at all. Tsem Rinpoche’s life story is very inspiring. It’s a story about how we can turn our bad experiences into something positive to help others and at the same time to heal ourselves.

    Buton Rinchen Drub was born in 1290, in western Tibet area of Tsang . As a gifted young boy ,he displayed all the extraordinary behaviour of a high incarnated Lama. Learning ancient Sanskrit language, and by then had studied with many great masters and Abbots of his time, as his tutors. He also received additional tantric transmissions and empowerments from many other teachers . He studied Sanskrit poetry and grammar as well from numerous teachers as well. Amazing he could somehow able to perceive the holy face of Manjushri directly and to engage in conversation with him. Later years he gave teachings and ordination to a number of students. Soon he began to compose his own works and wrote the famous book, the History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. He remains to this day one of the most important Tibetan historians and Buddhist writers in the history of Buddhism and Tibet. His collections works have been well-known by all the schools of Buddhism in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of a great master.

    The Racetrack Playa, or The Racetrack, is a scenic dry lake feature with “sailing stones” that leave linear “racetrack” imprints. It is located above the northwestern side of Death Valley, in Death Valley National Park, Inyo County, California, U.S.

    The phenomenon of “Sailing Rocks” refers to rocks that move, leaving trails differing in both direction and length. Rocks that start next to each other may travel parallel for a time, before one abruptly changes direction to the left, right, or even back the direction it came from. Trail length also varies – two similarly sized and shaped rocks may travel uniformly, then one could move ahead or stop in its tracks.

    No one has seen or filmed the rock moving, it still remains a mystery how these rocks, some as heavy as a human move.

    Teresa Hsu who is also known as the Mother Teresa of Singapore is 112 years old. Even though very old, Teresa Hsu still looks alert and full of life. She is always laughing and she believes this is her secret to longevity.

    Teresa Hsu went to study nursing when she was 47 years old having witnessed the suffering of the wounded during World War II. After getting her qualification, she travelled around Europe to help the sick and needy. Later, she went back to Singapore and founded the Home for the Aged Sick in Singapore.

    I think her secret to longevity is to always focus out and care for others. She is doing so much good work to help others which give her a great sense of satisfaction and true happiness. If we don’t want to end up a bitter and miserable old person, we have to start focusing out like Teresa Hsu.

    Shark’s fin soup is a delicacy in Chinese culture. If you can afford to eat sharks’s fin soup, it means you are rich. In a way, it is a symbol of status.

    Even though highly priced, shark’s fin has no nutritional value at all. Up to 100 million sharks are killed every year to make this celebratory exquisite soup. Due to the high demand for shark’s fin, the world’s shark population has declined as much as 75%.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini's tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche To read more- https://bit.ly/2zW2Grz

My Nepalese boys work hard and I appreciate them. Today we have purchased special foods for them to snack on and also to cook with so they won\'t be so homesick. These foods are all imported from their country. There\'s a street in downtown K.L. that sell all this. So happy to get this for them. Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
