    Description

    So basically i was a full time freelancer , i do a lot of things from sports,outdoor, arts and some multimedia background. I live at the farm where surrounded with cocoa trees and few plants.At night it is very peaceful and cold because surrounded with a lot of trees.If you are nature lover this place definitely for you. In the meantime i'm running my own projects which is recycle waste. I turn them into decorating interior house with recycle waste.I don't have permanent staff and i do all by myself. While i was busy with my arts projects i need helper to help me with cocoa farm. I will guide volunteers from planting and others stuff.You will learn more about cocoa while you staying here and i will share some knowledge and skill from recycle waste.The farm i surrounded with cocoa's tree and left and right there are African oil palm tree.The farm, which covers an area of about 5 acres, has around 100 cocoa trees. The rest is the newly planted cocoa trees. I never done any hosting before so this is my 1st time, i hope i can learn and improve more day by day.

    Other than that, I'm planning to turn this cocoa farm into a tourist spot where not all Malaysian knows this place even the local people in Tanjong Sepat.

    Other plants are coconut,sugar cane,sacha inchi,Ciku,peppermint and more coming soon. Activities you can do here are learning about cocoa,planting,painting,arts,wood working and others.

    From KLIA to Tanjong Sepat is less than one hour. Here in Tanjong Sepat we have few beaches like Pantai Cunang is 9.3km from lee's cocoa farm it takes 12 minutes to reach there, Pantai Batu Laut 4km, 30miniutes to Pantai Bagan Lalang,8.7km to Pantai Morib,18 minutes to Pantai Kelanang. It is also near to Jugra Banting,

    We have pets for time being is only cats.Their name is bobby and nikky.soon will be dogs and chicken.If you are animal lover this should be your place.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During the off-time you can visit the closest attraction around the town like homemade food. Tanjung Sepat gets its name from the word Tanjung, meaning cape in English, and Sepat, a type of fish. It used to be a fishing village but due to pollution in Straits of Malacca, this activity is becoming less intensive, but still part of the daily scene here. A half day to one day trip here during weekend or long holidays is ideal, as this place allows you to slow down your hectic pace in the city, stroll along the seaside and enjoy the gentle breeze.Tanjung Sepat. It is not as crowded as Sekinchan, even on holidays.
