We had a blast on my last trip. We went to a paddy field! We had a fun, awesome and delightful time there, at Sungai Besar.

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.

When we arrived, I saw a house. House? Oh, it's our home stay. We went inside and we changed our clothes. Then, we went out again and went to 'Restaurant Mee Udang'. It's famous with mee udang and chendol. We ate the mee udang. It's SOOO yummy ( but spicy).

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??????
Then, we played with the kite. It's so hard. I didn't even fly up the kite but the others can. But after mama told me that ''we also learn something from failure'', all my sadness in my heart just went away. We went inside the car and saw the beautiful scenery of the paddy field.

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!!
After discovering, we went to a restaurant and took away the food. It was rice, tomyam, soup, vegetables and chicken. We straight away went to our home stay, took our bath and ate! Yum, the food was so delicious! Then, we drew a little and went to sleep. GOOD NIGHT!

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.

I'M AN EXPLORER ( National Museum )


I'm gonna tell you guys about my experience in NATIONAL MUSEUM! It's a very cool place, exciting and knowledgable.

That's the entrance of the National Museum. We're happily posing! We can't wait to enter  and explore the museum! 
As we arrived, we bought the ticket and guess what we saw? A disabled man selling keychain made up of 'dawai'. We bought three keychains with our name written. Then we're off!

We went to the museum. When we entered Gallery A, we saw a volunteer! She's Kak Aina. She's gonna guide us a tour. What a blast start for us. 

That's us in a village posing for our pictures. PEACE!

At Gallery A, she showed us something! It's about the Stone Age. The Stone Age was divided into three catagories. Paleotik, Epi - Paleotik and Neolitik. During that time, people lived in caves. Besides that, she also showed us about the Metal Age. The Metal Age occured during 3000 AD. The evidence of this era was the Dongson Bell, Bronze Drum, Meenhers,etc. After that, we discovered about Proto Historic Age. It's about how Hindu Buddhist culture exist in Southeast Asia. That's so..... Ancient.😟

Now it's time for Gallery B! I got to know about Malaysian History! It was borned 250 million years ago. During that time, people all over the world came to Malacca by ships to trade. Among the items they traded were silk, textile, spices etc. Their trading businesses were getting even better year by year. On the 13-14th century, Malacca was a famous and powerful kingdom. Since that, Malacca became the centre of Islam. Islam was then spreaded to South East Asia.

That's me, jotting down notes all the way about our exploration.

Last but not least, it's time for Gallery C. It's the time when the Potugese, Japanese, Dutch and the British tried to conquer Tanah Melayu. The Portugese conquered Tanah Melayu in 1511. They also built a port called A Famosa until Dutch captured in return. Then, Dutch ruled for another 150 years. More than a century! Then, British ruled Tanah Melayu until the independence day. The British gave a lot of contributions such as introducing the rubber tapping, better tin mining process, etc. Wow! What a lot of contributions British contributed to Tanah Melayu! 😋

We had fun! That was great and fruitful trip! Well, we said bye- bye to Kak Aina and salam her. I'm so thankful to her for guiding us a tour. Now what?😕 Remember the keychain? We went to that guy and took our keychain! Wow! He's so TALENTED! 😇

YAYYYY! Our keychains are done! that's so COOL!

Overall, I had soooo much fun and gaining knowledge,too. Didn't believe me? Ask mama. The place was awesome, Kak Aina was soo nice. Beyond that! I knew loads of history.

You guys MUST GO THERE! Then, tell me your experience in the comments. I hope you had fun reading and......
