Dear Friends and Guests,

After twenty years of running Teluk Iskandar Inn, we've decided to retire and close the inn.

This decision was not easy, as these past two decades were full of fond memories. We have enjoyed sharing meals, stories, and experiences with all of you, in our slice of tranquility by the sea.

We'd like to thank everybody for all of their support and memories. Without a doubt, we will carry them with us as we continue onto our next adventure.

We are seeking parties that are interested in leasing, or purchasing Teluk Iskandar Inn. Please contact us at to discuss potential opportunities.

Thank you so much for twenty years of your support. We look forward to our next adventure!

With love,

Kamariah and Ibrahim

Butter making at Teluk Iskandar Inn

Gucharan delivers a quart of fresh milk to Teluk Iskandar Inn on a daily basis. A few times a week we also get yogurt. The milk is non pasteurized, and is wonderful tasting. Teresa decided to make butter from a simple butter recipe she found off the Internet. The recipe involves skimming cream after it floats to the top of the raw milk. This process of skimming cream took about a week because you can only get a few teaspoons of cream from each quart of milk. The cream was collected in a jar, and the jar was shaken until butter formed. The butter was washed and salted. Here is a picture of Teresa with Kamariah and the finished product. Kal assisted with washing the butter and shaking the cream. Shahril made toast so we could all enjoy the butter.

Next project - paneer!
