Ah...yesterday quite a few of you asked where's the rice? Well...that Orchard tarak sell rice leh. They only sell fruits and snacks leh.
Hence off we went again hunting for the elusive rice factory lo. Drive punya drive then saw this BIG tree with loads of yellow ribbons in front of a temple. Could it be the famous "Wishing tree"? But that one should have red ribbons wor....why this yellow one geh?
Time for adventure. Got down from the car to "look see look see". Saw the small pagoda / tower .
Jom! Let's climb up. Don't be so chicken la , Mamarazzi. Let me lead the way.
1st floor. Nice view. Second floor.....aiks.....legs shaking liao. Very steep leh the stairs.......
Shhh......don't tell people that my legs were shaking ah....
Still wondering why the tree have a lot of yellow ribbons with a round ring tied to each coin...hmm....nobody here to ask.
Oh well.....back to the search for the elusive Rice Factory la.
Saw many types of bicycles "parked" right outside the factory. Must be tourist who doesn't wish to drive to the factory so they rented bicycle to cycle around the paddy fields. Yup...the road here are very narrow. Would be fun to go around in bicycles or motorcycles.
Haiz...my 6 years old photos she had yet to sort and put on the side bar here leh.
They have this Rice Planting Machine on display for visitors to snap photos in. At first Mamarazzi thought the green padddy seedlings are fake but when she looked properly...yikes...real seedlings leh.
At this factory there is also a small "Paddy Museum" . I think I went in before but I didn't understand what they were talking about then coz they were speaking Mandarin.
This round, I insisted to go again. RM5 per visitor.
Each visitor with ticket will get a packet of rice. Two for us then coz Papa didn't go.
I didn't listen much coz I was busy snapping photos with my phone.
But pretty soon Mamarazzi
kicked my arse called me and said enough liao. Time to go "shopping".
While Mamarazzi was busy "borong-ing" ....so many type of rice...what to buy ah? Me pulak started eyeing what I wanted.
One for me and one for Papa.

As we were heading back to the car, guess who spotted us? Yup ! "Professor McDonagall"...The teacher in the kindie that I respected the most. Dare not play the fool in her class.
Coincidentally she was visiting the factory with her family too. Mamarazzi had a nice chat with her and she asked about my progress in Primary school. Said not to worry about Mandarin as I would automatic pick up the language in no time.
Mamarazzi then said she wanted to go opposite the factory and see what they are selling at the roadside shop. I told her that I would rather stay in the car with Papa as I
Mamarazzi was tempted to buy then she thought heaty leh.
Asked the boy selling the mango what type is the mango but he said he dunno. From what Mamarazzi saw in the basket , it looks like they have two type of mango - Lemak Manis and Water Lily species.
Well, since it was very fresh, Mamarazzi bought a kilo of the Lemak Manis mango la. Expecting better buys from the Famous Mango King Shop which Professor McDonagall told her during their conversation.
Next stop....Mango King
