At The Agriculture and Agri Food Expo '09

Last Friday we went to the expo at Tungku Agricultural Area. It was so hot that we felt hot and sticky. However, we really had fun time there. Here I would love to share some pictures at the expo.Above ~The potted plants for sale.

Below ~ I love these sweet duku more than langsats...sold at BND$4 per kilo. Yes I bought a kilo only :D
Above ~ The padi seedlings exhibited...looked more like grass to me :)

Below ~ I love petunias...but I managed to force myself not to buy....*although I was awfully tempted* We have had couples of these before but they didn't last long.... :(Above ~ The layered cakes....colourful and attractive...

Below ~ This is called Sulang fruit. The flesh of the fruits can be used to make yellow rice or 'nasi kuning'. The natural food colourant.

Above ~ I took the rice sensory test.

Below ~ The kids played with the styrofoam mushroom.
Above ~ This orchids are expensive....but these were planted along the walkways there.

Below ~ These were emus...and Habibati called "big bird"....I tried to zoom in the picture but someone else had entered the frame *giggles*
Above ~ The pond of lilies...and other aquatic plants....how I wish I had this one too :)
Below ~ We saw some farmers there...but by looking at their faces...they sure weren't local. But something had attracted my attention when I took a picture of them.....Can you guess what?
