Seremban is a district in cum state capital of Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Highly influenced by the Minangkabau culture, most of the classic houses in Seremban feature roofs that look like the horns of a buffalo. Minangkabau sounding like “menang kerbau” simply means defeating the buffaloes, thus such an influence on the design of these houses. The history of Seremban can be revisited at the State Museum housing some of the artefacts and stories about Negeri Sembilan. Nature lovers can wind down at one of Malaysia’s oldest natural lake gardens at the Seremban Lake Gardens or visit the Seremban 2 Recreational Park which is a six-acre land with a breathtaking landscape with vibrant kites flying around to give the sky some colour. The Jelita Ostrich Show Farm on Jalan Jelebu is a fun place to visit with the family. This farm specialises on more than just the breeding activities of this wild bird. Seremban has a variety of dishes that need to be savoured. The one thing that comes first to the minds of every Malaysian when you say “Seremban” is the Seremban Siew Pau which can be seen along the famous North South Highway. It’s a flaky bun stuffed with meat fillings, traditionally pork but also available in chicken for non-pork eaters. Apart from that the local Malay delicacies such as the Gulai Lemak Cili Padi (Spicy Oil Curry) and the famous Nasi Padang which is rich in coconut cream served with Cili Padi are some of the dishes to be tried. One of the famous Chinese meals include baked crabs beef noodles which can be found at Yee Kee Beef Noodles or Quinn Seremban Beef Noodles. On a personal note, generally Seremban is a very quiet town but is getting pretty busy by the day. There are some malls to visit here such as Pall Mall but somehow there’s a totally different air and ambience here from the people to the place itself. Do visit this fast developing town before it fully turns into a mega metropolis by catching the next bus through the CatchThatBus mobile app or webpage.
