A small town called Mukah..

Hi there! This entry is dedicated to those who love Mukah as much as I do, and also to anyone
who love to know more about this small town..:-)

history~how Mukah got its name~

If you ask me about the history of Mukah, or how Mukah got it name, I'm so sorry, coz I don't
know..hahha..I only remember, when I still a little girl, someone told me(0s0 cannot remember who~org kampunglah) that Mukah got its name from Mekah..some foreign traders confius Mukah with they came to this place(Sebenarnya mereka mahu pergi ke mekah, xda peta or kompas time ni kan, salah pula..hee).Because of this confusion, they called this place Mukah which before this only known as kampung Melano.hahha.this only a mitos for sure...Mekah is too far away from Mukah to make people confius, but when I'm just little girl, I believe this, before another frog make a fool on me about my hometown history, i make a research & with help by uncle google I found out, how Mukah got its name.The named "Mukah" is given by nakhoda kapal from Tanah Arab. He was amazed with one beautiful Melanau girl(macam saya jak ni..haha) that he and his crew saw at the first time they came to Mukah.So he called this place "muka" which refer to that girl beautiful face. For full version of this story, click here. Enough for go to her story..hahha..

what so special about Mukah

Mukah is of course famaous with the variety of traditional foods.People normally refering Mukah with sago , ulat mulung, tebaloi, & the most famous one ,, another one, linut
