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 😀

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🌱🌿,

2️⃣ The Trigona Bee 🐝 Sanctuary & Honey 🍯 Tasting 😋

Wow‼️ Once you stepped 👣 into this sanctuary, you will be surrounding by some free 🆓 flying stingless bees 🐝 🐝 to foraging for food & nectar 🌷🌹🌸🌺🌼🌻

Definitely a haven for the pollinator ~ stingless bees 🐝 🐝 source the nectar from the variety of flowers & plant🌷🌹🌸🌺🌼🌻, to find materials to constructing & securing their bee 🐝 hives

A plot to showcasing the different types of plants used to producing Boden’s herbal teas 🍃🍵 Really an enjoyable tea 🍵 tasting 😋 as each has its unique flavour & health properties 😄

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 ğŸ˜ž 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 🌱🌿

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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 ğŸŽ for her papa 👴🏻

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

However, she definitely a nature 💚🌳🌳 lover

Wow‼️😲 A video clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ captured by the farm officers 👷🏾‍♀️👷🏾‍♂️ during her visit

Negeri Sembilan is not just with widely known Port Dickson beach 🏖🏝 , she has explored some hidden gems ğŸ’ŽğŸ’Ž during her recent trip ğŸ˜ğŸ˜Ž

Ohh…Where & what❓⁉️

1️⃣ of the gems ğŸ’ŽğŸ’Ž recently discovered by her is Kenaboi State Park (FKA Taman Alam Liar Negeri) ğŸžğŸŒ³ğŸŒ³

Wow‼️ Awesome coincident‼️😁

Guess what❓⁉️

She has just read 👓 about it from The Sun Daily ğŸ—žğŸ“° in March & she has then visited it in April 😉

This park ğŸž is located 📍in the Kenaboi Forest Reserve🌳🌳, Jelebu which constitutes Hill Dipterocarp Forest. It overlooks the rainforest 🌳🌳 landscape, adjoining the Titiwangsa mountain ⛰ range in Pahang at north, as well as the borders of states Pahang & Selangor 😊

If you are 1️⃣ of the many nature lovers 💚💚, you will enjoy your time to experience this unspoilt greenery ğŸžğŸŒ³ğŸŒ³ of Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇾

Your next holiday destination for sure‼️😄

It’s with limited network reception📶, so you will enjoy a peaceful & private me time during your visit. A perfect place to hide from the constant hustle & bustle city 🌆🏙 lifestyle as well as without any phone calls ğŸ“žâ˜Žï¸ğŸ“±disturbance 😀

Ohh ya…So what’s the exciting bit of this place❓⁉️

Photo 18-04-2018, 7 55 31 PM.jpg

She truly enjoyed the river 💦💧 trekking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️, tubing at Kenaboi river 💦💧, night 🌃🌌 jungle 🌳🌳 walk 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️& a camping 🏕🏕 overnight here

Hmm…How to access 📍to this state park ğŸžâ“â‰ï¸

This park ğŸž has began to be discovered in 1990 by 4×4 extreme sport activities through the Jemaloi Valley ğŸž of Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇾

True enough, she has transferred to ride on 4×4 after a coach 🚌 ride with her friends 👫👭👬 to get through the bumpy & potholes road 🛣& then arrived at the base camp site 🏕🏕

Dropped off luggages ğŸŽ’ğŸ’¼ğŸ‘œ at tent ⛺️ & captured 📸 a group photo 1️⃣st before the river 💦💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏻‍♀️

Frankly, it’s quite a challenging 🙃 river 💦💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ i.e. hiking through the streams to reach to Jeram Berungut ğŸž

It’s definitely worth your sweatsss 💦💦 as you will be amazed with breathtaking 🤩😍 views of the river 💦💧canyons as well as cool & crystal clear waters as the reward 😃

Since the river 💦💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️was started at late noon 🔅& due to unfavourable weather 🌦🌧, she has yet ❌ to reach & view the well known approximately 93m high Lata Kijang waterfall with all her friends👭👬👫 Nevermind, will keep this in her travel bucket list then 😆

After the river 💦💧trekking🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏻‍♀️, she has continued with tubing at the Kenaboi river 💦💧

Just so so relaxing 😌 & not ❌ to be missed ya!! You will feel your mind, body & soul just flow naturally & freely down the river. Amazing!!

Ha…Ha…Her tubing journey was being captured 📸 by the officer of Forestry Department, Negeri Sembilan 😅😂🤣

It was really an awesome ğŸ˜ŽğŸ‘ğŸ» day to get close with green 💚💚 nature‼️😃 Do enjoy a video clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ captured by her for sharing here,

A cosy comfy night 🌃🌃 at camp ⛺️🏕 stay, not to worry, there are proper shower 🚿 & washroom 🚽

Photo 04-05-2018, 7 08 35 PM.jpg

Hmm…The uniqueness of this park ğŸž includes its rich variety of floral 🌳🌲🌱🌿 cum plants e.g. orchids herbs, ferns, palm trees etc., the abundant waterfalls of the Kering River 💦💧 i.e. the tributary of the Kenaboi River 💦💧which often being associated with the local believed myth of the injured deer 🦌 falling into the waterfall. Yes ✅, hence the name of the waterfalls of Lata Kijang Waterfalls 😀

There are approximately 3️⃣ indigenous people villages within this park & namely as Tohor Village, London Village & Nap Village. However, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has yet ❌ to visit to any of these villages during her recent short trip to this park ğŸž

So, what are you waiting for❓⁉️

Let’s plan for a green 💚💚 getaway with aims to destress 😌 with a great change of green 💚scenery & fresh air 🌬You will definitely recharged‼️😃

Updated @ 10.5.2018 9am

So many matters happened since 6 May when SiennyLovesDrawing has rushed back from her working tripsss to attend 2 friends’ wedding ceremonies supposedly (meant to be a surprise to both of her friends). However, early morning of 6 May, received a phone call that her big uncle (mama’s family) has passed away

Sigh…Whole family members then rushed to Pahang to be with the big uncle’s family, helped for the wake preparation & attendance till 8 May. She really missed this big uncle so much as since young, he always bought him books & stationeries whenever he came to KL to visiting her family back then.

May you rest in peace, “dua gu” (big uncle in Hokkien dialect)

Then, rushed back to KL as whole family went for #GE14 #509 as a responsible Malaysians
