Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery is our next visit at Sekinchan after having our breakfast at Restaurant Riri Fatt Sekinchan. This place is under the management of PLS Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd and one of the paddy processing factory that allows tourist to visit and learn more about paddy processing and also about Sekinchan. It is a big building in the carpet of paddies and one would notice it very easily from far away. Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery also has a mini museum for tourist to learn more about paddy processing and the history of Sekinchan.

Wooden water turbine with water pond at the entrance as well. Water is a important element in paddy plantation business.
A mini buggy with paddy nursery mat for you to take photo with. I wonder if they are really using this buggy for paddy plantation here in Sekinchan?
In the Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery, tourists can come to this room to listen about paddy processing and introduction to different types of rice.
Rice can also be made into soap with different fragrance such as mint, rose and lavender. Later you can buy the soap at their mini market down stair.

Next, we went up to the mini museum in Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery. First thing we learn about many different kinds of rice.
We also learn about traditional paddy processing methods here.
Photos from the past showing traditional ways of harvesting the paddy with cows instead of machines.
Learn more about the rice we eat every day.
Some of the traditional stuff the paddy farmers used in their daily life.
Spotted this Chinese Abacus which is used for calculation before we have calculators.
Cow is used to harvest paddy before the machines.
Scarecrow used to scare the bird away from the paddy field. I think scarecrow is still being used today.
A reminder to everyone, how long have you been not eating rice with your family?
Some of the vintage kitchen stuff at Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery at Sekinchan.
Old television and audio set, old iron and other vintage utensils. Nice classic collection they have here.
Study a bit on the history of Sekinchan here. The word Sekinchan actually comes from Chinese which means the land is suitable for farming. Besides paddy plantation, Sekinchan is also popular for its farming and fishing village.
After the museum, we went to Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery’s mini market. Spotted this ice cream fridge with many kinds of flavours. So many until we don’t know which one to choose so we didn’t eat any ice cream.
Fu Chuk Keping Goreng is also available at the mini market.
There is also pearl rice cendol for tourist to quench their thirst.
Healthy brown rice, packed nicely for your convenience.
Sekinchan Rice Bubble Chocolate. So, rice can also be mixed into chocolate.
Do you know there is rice special for pets as well?
Fresh corn also available at a mini wet market opposite the factory.
Mango, lady finger and other vegetables available at the wet mini market too. Mango from Sekinchan is very big and sweet.

We visited Sekinchan on a non-peak season so there are not many tourists to the factory and the paddy field does not look the best. You may refer to the table below to the best time of visiting Sekinchan. View all my posts on Sekinchan with this link.
