Mutiara Figs Garden

Fig aka Buah Tin in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾 national language, it was mentioned specifically in Al-Qur’an

This garden was founded by Mr Mohd. Hilmi bin Yusoff at his own house 🏡 at Seksyen 7, Shah Alam, Selangor 🇲🇾 As an architect himself & his wife, Mrs Faridah Hasni binti Ramli love landscaping to beautify their home, gardening being influenced & trained by his late father, especially orchids

Jam, sambal & many more to bring more awareness for people to know fig & its health benefits especially high in antioxidants to reduce chance of cancer

It’s now a family managed business & through her chat with Mr Hilmi, she is impressed how this father actually supported his kids, 2️⃣ daughters & a son in this fig business.

Not just that, she has learnt that fig plants requires 4-6 months for planting & harvesting in Malaysia 🇲🇾, the fungus from humidity will spoil the fig fruits, also flood as fig needs water but not too much to grow for good harvesting.

It harvest 2️⃣ times a year in Malaysia 🇲🇾 versus once in Turkey 🇹🇷 comparatively, with rotating techniques used, Mutiara Fig manages to have fig harvesting all year round 👍🏻😁

  1. Remove outer layer of the plant
  2. Root hormones application
  3. Cut the Peat Moss & CIRT composition bag, spray water & apply again root hormones
  4. Then wrap the bag at the outer layer
  5. After 2️⃣ weeks root growth on the bag

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/vrZJbeZV4oRdiZJz9

Then, visited the Hock Leng Keng Temple 双文丹福靈宫 which founded in 1869. It’s a 150 years old Taoism temple with a museum to visit to learn the history of this temple & Serendah.

However, during this visit, she is sad to see the rubbish & not well taken care of this place. Special thanks to 1 of her travelmate, Ms MC who have shared the before photo captured from her visit in Aug 2020 that the Seven Wells were all functioning with cleaner surrounding at that time

At present, there are 2 wells that no longer with water 💦 Sigh…She wishes the relevant authorities can actually take some appropriate action to well maintain this beautiful site as Malaysia is slowly resuming tourism activities at the moment.

Things To Do @ Fukushima Prefecture

SiennyLovesDrawing loves train ride, so definitely she will enjoy a scenic railway ride on the Oku-Aizu Railway (Tadami Line) which offering fantastic views of the striking natural scenery ğŸšžâœ¨, especially during autumn & winter seasons

Aizu region with historical sites eg. Tsuruga Castle & Nakadori, with mountainous natural landscapes 🏔️, orchards & hot springs ♨️, both have basin areas that remain warm in winter & mountainous areas with cool summers & snowy winters

.

Mugenkyo-no-Watashi River Crossing on the Tadami River via Japanese boat trip around 15mins per way & run between Hayato Onsen pier & the Mifuke area. This was named after the truly wondrous scenery created by the river mist in the mornings & evenings of summer

Tsuruga Castle 鶴ヶ城 🏯 was known for its strong defense, enduring for an entire month under the enemy’s attack during the 1868 war. It’s said to be the only castle in Japan that still has the same red-tiled roof from the time before it was demolished. At top floor, it offers a view of Mt. Bandai & Iimori Hill, also the townscape of Aizu. Ms Abe has recommended this castle as must visit during spring & autumn season

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 also read about this unique Buddhist temple built in 1796 named Sazaedo Temple 螺旋堂 ⛩️ (Aizu Sazae-do, officially named Entsusansou-do). It’s still standing strong now after about 220 years, this 3-story temple solely made of wood, looks like a spiral staircase shaped with its ingenious double-helix slope (It allows visitors to ascend & descend the temple structure without meeting those moving in the opposite direction) that makes it in National Important Cultural Property listing in 1995 & also was showcased in Michelin Green Guide in 2018. Visitors will observe a discontinued practice by local Japanese from the plastered family placards of visitors who completed pilgrimages to the temple & gave donations on the roof & walls of this temple. She would definitely visiting it when she is at Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Fukushima. More info via 🌐 http://sazaedo.jp/

.

Hanamiyama Park ğŸžï¸ sets on the slopes of the hills to offers a plethora of cherry trees with many different hues of pink. Must enjoy the walking trails & exploring the recommended picture-taking spots during the sakura season, middle of April in Fukushima

Miharu Takizakura 三春滝桜 is ranked among the Japan’s “3 greatest cherry trees 🌸💮” ~ The Takizakura literally means “waterfall cherry tree” is 1 of the most popular single cherry trees in Japan. The wonderfully shaped weeping cherry tree in the hills of Miharu Town is said to be over 1000 years old
