As we hopped in the car, we had a companion. Guess who? AUNTY IZZA! She will be following us to the trip. After everything's settled, mama drove the car! VROOM,VROOM! The journey to Sungai Besar took HOURS, so I slept.
|Look at the cendol and mee udang! It makes you hungry, Isn't it?|
After we ate, we went to a place where people played the kite, a wide paddy field. Before that, we went inside the building and saw an old man holding kites. Me and my sisters each took one of the kite and decorated it. We decorated with the paper butterflies. It's SOO cute!
|That's us, making our kite!|
|Aren't you suprised Arlia could play the kite??????|
|Aunty Izza was sooo clever!! Keep it up!!!!|
While we're still in the car, we saw three women in front of a house. What's so interesting? We stopped by in front of the house and greeted them. After chatting a little, one of the women said,'' We own some of the paddy field, mango trees, goat's stable etc.'' That's a lot!
|The fish was fresh from the river!!!!|
We went to the goat's stable and saw 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6,7 goats. We fed them with leaves. There's also fire to keep them warm at night. After feeding them, we went in the car and visited the cow stable. We saw different type of cows. We saw the black, white, black and white etc.
|That's Ariana, feeding the goats at the stable.|
|Look at the beautiful scenery at the paddy field!!|
THE NEXT DAY........
I woke up early in the morning and bought breakfast. We decided to buy bread and sardine at Petronas, but there's none. So, we went somewhere else. Guess what? We saw a stall! Yay! Finally, we could buy the food! We bought nasi lemak, doughnut, karipap and apam. Then, we went to our home stay and had breakfast. Delicious!
After that, we went to the RIVER! We wanted to swim there, but we can't because it's TOO DEEP! So, we used the alternative way. We swam at the 'palong'. It's not deep but flowed VERY QUICKLY! The water came from the mountain, then flowed to the forest, then to the 'palong' and down to the paddy field. The further we swam, the faster the water was flowing.
|That's us, at the palong!!!|
|Atuk demonstrated to us how paddy is seeding!|
Then, we dried up and we went for........ FISHING. It's not my favourite activity ( 'cause I've tried fishing before ) because it's so hard. Unlike Ariana, she LOVVVVEEEES fishing so much. She would never give up. At the end, we didn't caught any fish which was frustrating. Especially for Ariana. All she wanted to do was fishing
|That's us, running at the 'batas sawah'|
|We're fishing at the river. Ariana's enjoying!!!|
After that, we went to our home stay and packed up our things. Once everything's settled, we hopped in the car. Bye Sungai Besar!
|The mak cik burned the mentarang. It's SOOOO yummy. Don't believe me?|
|We're gonna find sugarcane! VROOM! Off we go!|
This was the most knowledgeble trip I've ever had. We went to the paddy field, palong, played the kite, etc. Thanks mama! Thanks everyone!!!!!!!! How could I repay your kindness????? Such a wonderful experience.
