Batik is the icon of Malaysia, makes it the beauty of Malaysian from history until now. What is so special about Batik is the whole process of making it, and its interesting to know the story behind these beautiful art pieces!

MyBatik is founded by batik Artist Emilia Tan since 2004 and now she is promoting traditional local cuisine cooking workshop in Green Tomato Café on a daily basis. The on-boarding of Chef Rica inspired Emilia to push the traditional cooking workshop into the public. 

This is such a good workshop as most of the Malaysian wouldn't even know the process of Batik making or the traditional local cuisine.
