An acronym of “Boer” (a species of goat 🐐 , literary meaning farm 🌱🌿 in Dutch 🇳🇱 language) & “eden” means me in a local dialect of Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇾

It means My Farm 🌱🌿 as she was told during the welcome speech 🗣👥👥👥 by the founders 💁🏽‍♂️💁🏽‍♀️(a married couple) with a desire to lead a new 🆕 life journey in agriculture 🌱🌿 after their career retirement 😀

💚~ Experience. Engage. Enlighten. Enjoy ~💚

During her recent trip, she was grouped in Team A with about 2️⃣0️⃣pax of her tourist guide friends 👫👬👭 for the farm 🌱🌿 visit

There are 5️⃣ sheds to visit within this 💯-acre farm🌱🌿,

1️⃣ The Goat 🐐🐐 & Sheep 🐏🐑 Shed

Unlike the so called “true tea” which are brewed from the tea leaves 🍃, the Boden herbal tea 🍵are made from the leaves🍃, fruits🍌 & flowers💐 from its farm 🌱🌿 cum garden 🤩

Hmm…Curious 🤔 about the types of tea 🍵 SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 & friends 👫👭👬 have enjoyed & tasted 😋 during this tea 🍃 garden visiting❓⁉️

IMG-20180419-WA0072.jpg

There are lemongrass, butterfly 🦋 pea, ginger, peppermint, Roselle, Mulberry 🍒 etc. 😋🤤

Personally, she loves ❤️ the butterfly 🦋 tea 🍵 the most, not just because of its purple 💜 colour, but its taste too 😘

IMG-20180419-WA0010.jpg

Hmm…So sad 😞 that she forgot to get a packet 🛒🛍 of butterfly 🦋 tea 🍵 home 🏡 😭

4 The Potting Shed

Yeah‼️ “Green 💚 Fingers” is a myth 🙃

As you all are aware, different plants 🌱🌿require a different admixture of the planting media, then the plants will glow & blossom, green 💚 fingers or not 😊

Some of the herbs planting 🌱🌿within the garden,

Ohh ya…She loves ❤️ the interactive 🗣👥👤👥session at this plot where she got an enjoyable learning & hands on experience in planting 🌱🌿

The steps ~ soil mixing, compost, plants & seedling, watering 💦💧, then harvest 🌱🌿

She has chosen for a misai kucing plant 🌱🌿 & took it home 🏡 after the session as her trip souvenir 🎁 for her papa 👴🏻

Her papa 👴🏻 loves 💚 gardening…Not SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 ya 😆🤣

However, she definitely a nature 💚🌳🌳 lover

#TravelogueMalaysia: Healthy farm-to-table dining @ Refarm Kampar

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 really appreciate her healthy 👍🏻 dining 🍽 at Refarm Kampar ~ Farm. Food. Stay ~ during her recent travelling 🚙 to Perak State, Malaysia 🇲🇾

IMG_0364.jpg

Upon arrival, from the Refarm’s signage at its car park, she thought that it’s just a farm / plantation❗️

IMG_0390.jpg

Guess what❓⁉️

It’s actually a recreation farm aka leisure farm with a restaurant 🍽 & farm stay / accommodation🏡

IMG_0395.jpg

Just a RM🔟/ pax for adult 👫👴🏻👵🏻 & RM5️⃣/pax for kid 👶🏻👧🏻🧒🏻👦🏻 to enter & enjoy the activities within the leisure farm, not necessary / require to dine in / stay a night though😃

There are lots of activities within this 2️⃣6️⃣-acres recreation farm & she plans to bring her papa👴🏻 & mama👵🏻 for a relaxing stay vacation here next year😁

Hmm…She is gonna sharing her dining 🍽 experience 1️⃣st, it was the most joyful 🤣 meal of this trip as lots of laughter 😆 throughout the entire healthy dining 😜 Ha…Ha…

IMG_0374.jpg

Hmm…Why she kept mentioned a healthy 👍🏻 dining❓⁉️

It’s because all the dishes ordered were all sourced directly from the farm. Wow‼️ It’s Refarm’s farm-to-table concept👍🏻😋

There is a 1.2km piping system built & connecting to the upstream of the waterfall to supply the clean water 💦💧 for its fish 🎣🐟 , crops 🌿🌱& farm animals🐔🐐🐂

Most impressive is Refarm uses own produce organic & environmental friendly fertilizer (non-chemical ❌☠️) i.e. recycling ♻️ the animals & plants’ excrement & residue, then turned into manure through its fermentation process👍🏻👏🏻

~ Recycle ♻️ & no thought of wastage ~ It’s another Refarm’s concept of not wasting any low quality vegetables & fruits, instead will be used as animal feed. Bravo‼️👍🏻👏🏻

IMG_0365.jpg

She loves ❤️ all the tasty yummy 🤤😋 dishes ordered & would like to share each of the dishes here in accordance to her preference order🤩👆🏻
