Living Off-The-Grid in Lenggong Valley, Malaysia

Dear friends around the world,

In recent years, it is common to hear stories of people or families who choose to live off-the-grid with limited modern facilities, especially in Western countries. These people adopt this unique lifestyle for various reasons. Some of them do so to maintain their financial freedom, while others opt to be closer to nature. Some are tired of the unhealthy lifestyle of urban living and many other reasons that vary.

While this lifestyle is more common in the West, it is very rare to encounter such a lifestyle in Asia, let alone Malaysia. Therefore, it is a pleasant surprise to read about a family who renounced the urban lifestyle and opted to live off-the-grid on a farm in the state of Perak, Malaysia. I was very happy to see this as it takes one person or family to start this and then others will follow. I really do hope many will follow this lifestyle in Malaysia.

After years of working as a structural engineer in a stressful corporate environment in the capital city, Kuala Lumpur, Ladia Kuta found his peace on a farm in Lenggong Valley, Perak. Several years later, he met his wife, Amy Tan, a like-minded lady who shares and supports his vision. Although “deprived” of many modern conveniences, the family enjoys and experiences the benefits of living close to nature. Here is their interesting story to share with you.

There is an incredible couple in Indonesia doing similar work on a much bigger scale by creating an eco-awareness school to educate our young people. This school is revolutionary in which it will help literally save our planet as well as our minds and please have a look.

I wanted to share this story to bring awareness to the pioneering spirit of this family and in the process bring awareness to this type of living which might eventually be the source of our individual sanity as well as the method to save our planet. I am hoping the courses they will give will grow and become something that spreads this type of lifestyle in Malaysia. I do thank Susan Tam and Coconuts  KL for bringing this wonderful story to our Malaysian public. It is something I have been looking for. I do send this family my good wishes and good energy for success.

Sincerely, Tsem Rinpoche

 

Off-The-Grid: A Family Lives off a Farm in Lenggong and You Can Join Them

By Susan Tam | May 19, 2016

Lenggong Valley is well-known for its archaeological history, like the all-important Perak Man. But there is one other attraction: Permaculture Perak, a farmstay hidden in the lush jungle that offers a unique perspective of off-the-grid living.

Two-year-old Yanka Ladia perks up when she looks up to the sky, pointing out to her mum, Amy Tan that she’s heard an eagle.

The bright-eyed daughter of Tan and Ladia Kuta live on their farm in Lenggong, and has had a rather unique upbringing in this off-the-grid farmstay.

“It has given them (Yanka and her younger brother, Tadeus, one) a sense of great freedom, to explore and to have a very rich environment to stimulate their senses as well,” Tan told us after our visit to their rural home in Lenggong.

“Being in nature is like being in the best classroom, and there is no other better classroom that I can think of,” Tan said.

Tan was the founder and director of Zentrum, a somatic-based healing centre in Kuala Lumpur where she worked as a movement therapist and educator. Tan had been teaching and educating people afflicted with illnesses and injuries since 2004.

Since moving to Lenggong, the 36-year-old Pilates instructor has sold off her business in order to focus more on educating children and enriching others in the same environment Yanka and Tadeus are growing up in.

Kuta and Tan have plans to run an informal school — or a series of courses — for not only children, but adults too.

“These programmes will be based on nature and its elements as well as practices that promote sustainable living.”

Tan feels that getting children comfortable in a natural environment, such as the jungle, is a “vitamin” to counter the lack of nature and outdoor stimulation that children have somewhat lost in the city.

Coconuts KL discovered that Kuta and Tan’s farm resemble the romantic narratives that we often hear or read of; how urbanites yearn for a stress-free and meaningful retreat and seek such spaces as a getaway from the smoky city and demanding environments of urban living.

But they warn, as they did on their website, that facilities at Permaculture Perak are pretty basic — without the usual comforts of city life — so as to allow visitors the chance to appreciate earth’s resources.

The farm is located on land that used to be a tea plantation, and they use the existing warehouses to host larger groups — professionals or college students — keen on learning about farm life and living closer to nature.

In a separate building, there are five rooms for guests who come as couples, friends or for families with young children. Kuta and Tan’s house is located just next to the guesthouse. Amidst the farm, there is a small wading pool in which guests and hosts can enjoy a dip on a sunny day.

All meals are provided at the farmstay, and guests and hosts can prepare these meals together. This usually involves making omelettes and bread, depending on the dietary requirements of the visitors.

They also offer tours of the land, where they house chickens and cows, getting a daily supply of eggs. Cows offer them a consistent supply of fertiliser to enrich the soil on the farm. This tour is part of a farmstay feature, which can be booked in advanced.

They grow their own vegetables and have a wide range of herbs, lime, tomatoes, nutmeg and eucalyptus, winter melon and turmeric – the blue and white kinds included.

“Growing our own food is a matter of prestige. Take care of yourself, so you can take care of others, I say,” 44-year-old Kuta explained. They make nutmeg candy, along with a refreshing nutmeg juice.

They also prepare homes for bees in order to harvest fresh honey.

The former structural engineer retreated to the countryside after spending years working in corporate Kuala Lumpur.

His past job involved scaling buildings to check on safety aspects for the infrastructure industry. But he longed for something more meaningful.

Kuta is from a town called Pilsen in the Czech Republic. He saw an opportunity to practice farm-styled living in Lenggong in 2008. He met Tan a few years later when she was a guest at the farmstay.

The couple is currently leasing the land from the Perak state government, and they are in the midst of sorting out their permanent status to reside and use the land.

“Living off-the-grid is enjoyable but it has its challenges. The farmstay that we run, helps provide us some income, “ he adds.

The farm is located about 7 km from Lenggong town in UNESCO heritage site Lenggong Valley, but it is far from being connected to the usual utilities that we may be used to.

Kuta built his own solar system to supply a low voltage of 24W of electricity to the house. This supply is used only to power lights at night, a refrigerator and charge phones but this homemade power source teaches the family to use this resource more efficiently.

Permaculture Perak source their water from the mountain. All waste is recycled, reused and kitchen waste is made into a compost that will go into fertilising the vegetables.

Visitors can get to Lenggong by car, and will be picked up by the couple in their 4WD to be able to travel on the mountainous road and tackle the jungle setting.

The family’s relationship with nature is indeed a unique one as Tan summarises their lifestyle by stating that being on this farm had shown the family that it was possible to live well with very little and in simplicity.

“I would not have done anything differently since living here, because it would take the learning experience away and the experience of living (like this ) is very rich.”

    Thank you for the sharing, an inspiring article of a family growing up their kids and Living Off-The Grid in Lenggong Valley of Perak. I believe this is the positive mind set of the couples living closer to nature, explore to new ideas, being creativity, to live simple and happy with farming activities .

    There are number of people who are attracted to mother nature, they love the breezing air, greenery environment, and healthy living. Not many love to do this in this modern era where technology are vast growing where people are looking for more comfort and luxury homes.

    I loved the concept and the wonderful ideas of Tan and Ladia Kuta, being innovative, to facilitate, improve and to expend their living style. Thanks to The Coconut KL to introduce the Lenggong Valley and helping the couples to expend. Hope to get an opportunity to visit and enjoy the nature environment stay.

    This article is an attempt to understand what motivates people to choose adventure. A fantastic exploring of the couples Ladia Kunta and Amy Tan was absolutely amazing. This living off the grid in Lenggong Valley, in Ipoh Perak would be a place for those who a seeking to escape from their busy and hectic life style. Being well found that, Lenggong Valley is well-known for its archaeological history.

    It is the site of the oldest known place of human activity in the Peninsula. Today it is still a rural area, with small kampongs surrounded by green vegetation and limestone hills. Another hidden in the lush jungle and has an attractions of Permaculture Perak, a farmstay is exclusive and very unique. The founder had converted and carried the abandoned tea plantation into home and shelter.

    Interestingly, they build their own solar system supply for electricity usage and a pure spring water is supplied from the mountain nearby. Their main source of income are from the rich fertilized soil where they are their own vegetable gardening and farm animals. What I discovered here is, sometimes adventures give us a fresh and a different perspective to look at things.

    Wow its really rare to encounter such a living off-the-grid lifestyle in Malaysia. Interesting there is a family that lives off a farm in Lenggong, Malaysia. First time coming across this news. A loving couple Ladia Kuta from the Czech Republic and his wife, Amy Tan found a place away from city life call home to them . Where they started off from zero to a place of nature environment, living with very little and in simplicity. Having a farm ,growing vegetables, have a wide range of herbs, lime, tomatoes, nutmeg and so forth for their daily use. Such a wonderful idea, they house chickens and cows as well. On top of that they have a permaculture farm stay in the lush jungle offering those adventurous people and nature-loving families to experience their off grid living.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to for sharing with us the story of this couple who chose to live in the forest of Lenggong Perak, Malaysia. They were living in the city and decided to switch their lifestyle because they wanted a more simple life that is closer to nature. Hence, they went to this small town in Perak and set up their little paradise there.

    Many people are going for an off-the-grid living nowadays. This way of life has been getting more popular over the years, and many people shared their journey of transformation and also their current progress online. The common goal that I can see from these people to engage this type of lifestyle is to relieve themselves of the stress they get from city life and also to have a healthier lifestyle.

    Many of them talked about the negative impact of living in the city on our lives and how it can ruin our lives without us knowing. Who knows that in this age of materialism where everyone is driven to gain instead of losing, more people choose to lose their material things to attain peace in their lives.

    Many people moved to stay in the City to find a better job and better education for children. In the City we can also find hospitals every where and they kept expanding due to our demand. So i think it’s time to think, what are we actually chasing after? We seems extremely busy and successful but deep down inside we are so so poor in spirituality, family love, true friends and health. We seems to forgot how to live.

    Ladia and Amy have found what they truly want for their lives. They also want their children to have the privilege to live in the nature and let them learn from the nature, which is amazing. I think their programs and classes are interesting, exciting and got so much to learn! Instead of spending lots of money going for those overseas vacation, which you ended up even more stress, why not visit Ladia and Amy? I am sure we will find lots of surprise there.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Dawn Giordano Garofalo is a classmate of Tsem Rinpoche while in Howell, New Jersey. Tsem Rinpoche had not met her 35 years but not forgotten as both of them has great memories . Its great that she allowed the bio research team to interview in the last minutes. She had shared her memories with Rinpoche of their childhood.

    Watching the video tells a us a powerful message, go on meatless, vegetarian or vegan is the best choice to live a healthy lifestyle. Choosing a vegetarian diet is inherently healthful because vegetarians consume less animal fat and cholesterol . Nowadays more people are health conscious as they have seen animals been killed in a cruel way. Social media have sent out a powerful message eating meat is bad for health and many related diseases are the main cause of it. Go green to be healthy, nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth by eating meat. Eating a healthy diet high in fruit, vegetables and whole grains, will be good for our health. By reducing demand of meat we can safe animals from the slaughter house.
    Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing this video with us.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge on topic of equanimity and emptiness. Equanimity is the basis to develop Bodhicitta, equanimity to me helps us to maintain a balanced outlook towards people and situations.

    With a balanced concern for all sentient beings, we can further develop our minds to have the happiness of others as a priority.Once again thank you for sharing this good article with us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these precious rare pictures of great masters whose other than H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Ling Rinpoche. We are truly fortunate able to view these rare pictures. Looking at the pictures tells us a thousand words and it’s a blessing merely by seeing it. The two great masters were tutors of His Holiness Dalai Lama and been travelling with Dalai Lama everywhere.

    The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) said that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit yet at the same time they recognise the reincarnations of the Dorje Shugden lamas. That’s not logic at all. Reading this article tells one more than that, many great lamas have been reincarnated back again and again such as H E Serkong Dorje Chang, H E Gyara Rinpoche, H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche , H E Khari Kentrul Rinpoche and many more. Many high lamas and monks have engaged in Dorje Shugden’s practice over the years. When they passed away, their undisputed incarnation has returned , it has proven that those who practised Dorje Shugden’s practice do not go to the lower realm as claimed by CTA. Some of the past great lamas even composed the Dorje Shugden puja and prayers had it proven too that this practice is not a minor practice. It has been around more than 400 years old. Dorje Shugden was a pervasive practice within the Gelugpas before the ban.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this well explained article for more people to understand .

    Amazing and wonderful information of Mount Wu Thai and the holy sites of Manjushri in China . I believe with its particular geological structure and stunning natural landscape, the mountain has been listed in the World Heritage List by the UNESCO.

    I very fortunate to read this article and discover further about the historic land that encompasses ancient history, urban wonders, spectacular vistas and rich cultural experiences which makes it a popular destination for world travelers.

    Thank you for the beautiful scenery photos , hope to visit the peak mountain once in lifetime.

    ts really beautiful and amazing to see from the images above especially those at the rice fields. Looking at the huge buddha statue it really brings a sense of calm and peace looking at this big buddha adorning the big skyline.

    Big statues and religious Artifacts of Buddha images are used as inspirations to create and spread rememberances of good humane qualities, such as compassion and loving kindness, as-well-as inner peace .Thank you very much for this beautiful article.

    Well done the writers team from Kechara who had interviewed Geshe Lobsang Wangchuk , spoke what his thoughts of all about Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche our Lama. He is a personal friend of Tsem Rinpoche spoke the truth and only truth. Gen Wangchuk recounted Tsem Rinpoche’s Guru devotion, kindness and had help many monks from his home and headquarters Gaden Shartse Monastery, and even monks from different monasteries. Tsem Rinpoche understand the hardships of monks gave what he could even he had little for himself. Many monks have benefited from his kindness, Tsem Rinpoche was one of the few international lamas living overseas that had contributed significantly to monasteries. Rinpoche gave all that he had to benefit others, and even to beggars on the streets Rinpoche met. Rinpoche’s help had made a difference in the monk’s lives, supporting, encouragement, sponsoring dharma books and so forth.
    Thank you writers team for this wonderful sharing.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    3 yearss ago
    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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
