History

Tanjung Sepat

Tanjung Sepat is a beautiful place that enables the visitors to have a wonderful memory with family or friends. It is a fishing village in Kuala Langat district in Selangor, which is 45 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Tanjung Sepat is situated along the Straits of Malacca in the west coast of peninsular Malaysia.

In 1970s, Tanjung Sepat is primarily a town that mainly relies on fishing industry. Most of the residents in Tanjung Sepat have some kind of link to the fishing industry although the particular essential of fishing to the economy is deteriorating due to the pollution in the Straits of Malacca. In those days (1970s), the amount of fish harvested from the sea was huge compared with present times. Nowadays, fish population has dwindled badly due to pollution in the sea. Based on numerous researches conducted pertaining to the pollution in Straits of Malacca, it is widely believed that the main cause of pollution in this area is from the largest pig rearing farms. Although the modern technology has been improved in these pig rearing farms, the waste management issue kept on persisting. The uncontrollable waste from the pig rearing farms flows directly into the sea. Hence, this pollution causes the deterioration of the sea-produce. Eventually, this brings enormous hardship to the people who are involved in the fishing industry.

When the industrial technology improved in 1980s, the residents in Tanjung Sepat had the opportunity to venture into alternative economic activities. They gradually changed their main source of income from fishing related industries to agricultural industries such as pig farming, fruit plantations and so on. This new economic ventures enabled the residents in Tanjung Sepat to have a stable flow of income without depending solely on fishing industries.

Social, Culture and Religious Practice

Since Tanjung Sepat is a small fishing village located quite far away from the city, it does not have a fire station. However, there is a group of volunteers who manages a voluntary fire station. The fire station is equipped with the basic fire fighting equipment and two fire engines. In normal days, there will be no one at the fire station. The volunteer firemen will be called only if there are any emergencies.

Education

Tanjung Sepat

In the era of globalisation, the world is getting more advanced today. Education is fundamental in imparting knowledge to our younger generation. In order to provide continuous education to the people of Tanjung Sepat, two schools, namely Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tanjung Sepat and Sekolah Menengah Tanjung Sepat are established here.

Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tanjung Sepat (S.J.K (C) Tanjung Sepat) is a primary school built more than 54 years ago. This primary school began with about 300 students and 12 teachers including the principal. The condition of the classrooms was terrible and old then. Now, this primary school is very well-equipped with many facilities and larger classrooms. It has become very well-known over the years. The number of pupils has also increased to 992 and the number of teachers has increased to 56. The students are made up of four ethnic groups which are the Malays, Indians, Chinese and Orang Asli. Mandarin language is used as the medium of instruction in this school. This is a one session school. It only offers morning session. Students are allowed to use the facilities after their classes.

The 2010 UPSR passing rate of S.J.K (C) Tanjung Sepat is 50%. This is a rather high achievement for the school. The school had taken a lot of efforts in improving the passing rate by offering free tuition classes for the students as their Malay and English languages were very weak.

The school consists of 5 blocks where 30 classrooms are located. Moreover, this school is equipped with a hall, computer labs, classrooms, a field, a science lab, a computer lab, a library, an ABM room, living skills room, a canteen, an office, a counselling room and a store room for sport equipment. It also has an indoor basketball court and a badminton court which allow the students to practice even when the weather is bad. Besides, the school encourages each student to involve themselves in co-curricular activities on every Thursday. Students can join various clubs, sports and games according to their interests.

Currently, the school is facing two main problems. Firstly, the standard six pupils have very poor attitude towards their studies. They do not take exams seriously and are always into computer games. Secondly, the standard six pupils tend to play truant due to their seniority in the school. Most of the pupils‟ parents are working outstation and most of these students live with

Tanjung Sepat

their grandparents. The grandparents are less strict in controlling their grandchildren. The pupils are given a lot of freedom to do what they like. This could be one of the reasons why students play truant during school hours and subsequently lose interest in their studies.

Economic Activities

Pasar Awam Tanjung Sepat

Tanjung Sepat

Some of the villagers in Tanjung Sepat have vegetable and fruit farms in the remote area of the village. They would sell their produce at the local market. The Pasar Awam is the only market in Tanjung Sepat, where the stalls operate from 4.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. daily. Since there are no shopping malls or supermarkets in Tanjung Sepat, the villagers who need daily groceries usually do their marketing at Pasar Awam.

Mr. Gao, one of the stall owners has been selling vegetables for 4 years at Pasar Awam. He supplies vegetable seeds to foreign workers for farming purpose in the village. In the beginning, Mr. Gao started his business at a small market in Tanjung Sepat. Ever since the opening of Pasar Awam, Mr. Gao shifted his business from the small market to the big market for better opportunities.

Yek Loong Enterprise manufactures fish ball products and supplies it to the market. Mr. Koh Chin Tai has been running this business since ten years ago and his shop has now become one of the must-visit places in Tanjung Sepat. Here, buyers can witness how fish balls are being processed. Firstly, the workers would remove the fish‟s innards and bones. Later, they would scrape the flesh of the fish and place them into the food processor which turns all the flesh into fish paste. The fish paste can now be easily shaped into various types of fish balls. After the fish balls are properly packed, the workers would sell them to the town markets and also to supermarkets which are located beyond the village. The address of Yek Loong Enterprise is No. 30, Jalan Bawah Satu, Tanjung Sepat, 42800 Selangor Darul Ehsan.

Hai Yew Heng Pau

Hai Yew Heng is a pau making factory located in Tanjung Sepat. Many visitors travel to Tanjung Sepat to visit this pau factory to witness how the pau is being made. This factory is just a small shop lot. These paus are so popular that it often became the „hot item‟ that people would buy and bring home for their friends. The shop starts operating from 1.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. daily. During public holidays, it starts its business at 10.00 a.m. and closes at 6.00 p.m.

Mr. Lee Chin Teck, 62, inherited the pau business from his father. He makes Hainanese styled pau, which is large and flat and the fillings are entirely handmade. The pau flour is put into a machine which produces the pau skin of standard size. Then, workers would wrap up the skin with fillings and pleat them into a nice pau shape. In the early 1990s, Mr. Lee made just 100 paus a day. Now, with the modern mixer, he can produce over a thousand paus daily.

There is a huge variety of paus made by Hai Yew Heng, which are “Sang Yuk” also known as meat pau, “Mui Choy”, Kaya, Vegetable, Red Bean and Peanut. The pork comes from the nearby pig farms, while the kaya is made from local chicken eggs and coconuts harvested

Tanjung Sepat

from the orchards. Opposite the pau factory is a shop lot which also belongs to Mr. Lee. It is a small café which serves a variety of paus that you wish to order and then taste it with a cup of coffee or tea. The address of Hai Yew Heng Pau factory is No. 405, Jalan Pasar, 42800, Tanjung Sepat, Kuala Langat, Selangor Darul Ehsan.

Problems

Tanjung Sepat

A significant problem spotted during our trip to Tanjung Sepat is the lack of traffic awareness of the road users in that area. Motorcyclists can be seen everywhere on the road without wearing their helmets which is extremely dangerous. The risk of injury or even death will be doubled or tripled without wearing a helmet when the motorcyclists are riding on main roads. Besides, most of the road users do not obey the usual traffic rules, for example not using the signal light when taking a corner, neglecting one-way lane and going against it. This may result in accidents and therefore it must be avoided at all cost.

Secondly, the pollution of Tanjung Sepat has become a serious issue to be dealt with; mostly due to the improper care of environment by the locals. According to some of them, the sea has become murky and the fish have been disappearing. Even though several areas have been labeled „Zon Bersih‟ (Clean Zone); rubbish can still be spotted to be dumped everywhere. The residents of Tanjung Sepat should be more conscious of their responsibility towards their environment. Moreover, the working environment of many shops and farms are very not hygienic too. Besides, hundreds of pig farms located in Tanjung Sepat have been emitting horrendous stench and polluting the local area as well. Most of the locals have gotten used to the stench. However, the strong stench has proven to be too strong for any outsiders. The environment of the pig farms is very bad as well. We are able to spot a few piglet remains outside the farms. There is still a vast room of improvement for the managers to handle their pig farm operations.

The issue of „rubbish pork‟ which has been a rather hot topic recently is a huge threat to the health of the people. It is very unfortunate that these „rubbish pork‟ is found in abundance in Tanjung Sepat. According to recent reports, these pork products are made from the dead and sick pigs by the unethical businessmen. However, we have not received any information on this issue from the locals and this problem is waiting to be resolved by the government as well as the local businessmen.

Recommendations

Tanjung Sepat

Seminars should be held frequently to remind and instill the awareness of traffic rules among the local road users. At the same time, the local road users should be properly guided and taught of the consequences of not obeying the rules as they drive or ride on the roads. Ultimately, as they understood that the traffic rules‟ aim is to protect the road users and avoid as much as accidents as possible they would be willing to abide them instead of breaking them. Heavy fines should be imposed to those who break the rules to ensure that more locals will be willing to follow the traffic rules, and discourage them from committing the same mistake.

Talks and campaigns should be held to educate the locals about the importance of taking care and improving the environment as well. It is vital to ensure that the living environment is hygienic or risk being affected by diseases which may even take away lives. „Gotong-royong‟ should be organized by the locals to clean up the rubbish not only in their own houses, but also the surrounding environment which include the rivers and sea. This should be done immediately to improve the quality of their life. The government should also increase the fines and enforce them to those who have chosen to break the law.

Furthermore, the government should provide a more structural and constructive talk to the local pig farm owners, as well as give more funds to support their financial needs. The local pig farms need extra funds to reduce the pollution it causes, such as reducing the stench, killing the bacteria more effectively and more organized operation.

Government should also impose a heavier punishment to businessmen who are found guilty selling „rubbish pork‟. Not only does it affect our health, it gives a negative impression to the other countries as well and greatly affects our economy. The disease caused by the „rubbish pork‟ might be extremely hazardous and is yet to be discovered. Therefore, more steps should be taken to eliminate all the „rubbish pork‟ available on the market.
