This post has been sitting in the Draft section of my blog for the longest time…. It should have been posted up right after the Legoland post but I don’t know why I didn’t do so…
So, anyway, after our Legoland trip in November last year, the fun did not end there. After spending more than half a day at the water park, we drove up to Kluang that evening to continue our holiday.
We arrived in the evening and went for a delicious dinner at Restoran Ikan Asam Pedas, which, as you can obviously guess, was famous for their Ikan Asam Pedas.
The famous Ikan Asam Pedas – Daddy’s favourite kind of dishes
Egg, vege and stir-fried chili sotong with petai
Love the spicy, tasty prawns cooked with lots of garlic
Another one of Daddy’s favourite dishes
Dinner with good friends
The next morning, the must-go destination was definitely Kluang Railway Station. Not to take a train but to have breakfast at the famous Kluang Rail Coffee Shop. In case you have not heard of this place, it’s famous for its aromatic coffee and yummy nasi lemak bungkus. It’s situated right at the Kluang Railway Station.You can check out their website here: http://kluangrailcoffee.com.my/.
According to the website, the coffee shop has been operating at the same location since 1938 and is currently run by the 3rd generation of Lim family that started the business.
As usual, Isabel could not resist getting some snacks…
The place was awfully quiet that day, despite it being a public holiday. Besides us, there was only another family there. We were expecting a large crowd, so this really surprised us.
You can either go around the farm on foot, by bus or by horse cart. I wanted to take the bus as it could fit in all seven of us and it was much cheaper. The kids, however, insisted on the horse carts. Each horse cart costs RM200, excluding the entrance fee which was RM50 per person. This was so much more expensive than taking the bus (which was only RM60 per person including entrance fee) but Daddy said it’s ok since it will give the kids an experience of riding on the horse cart. Well, as long as I am not paying….
Whether you take the bus or the horse cart, the guide will bring you to all the stops so that you get a complete tour of the whole place.
The farm is known for its goats – which you can pet and feed.
The baby goats are just so cute!
The beautiful landscape outside the goat pen….
Here’s the goat milk processing factory where we got to watch the goats getting milked.
Fancy trying some fresh goat milk? Not me….
Machines to process and pasteurize the milk.
The goat milk are also used to make body lotion.
Getting the horse ready as we continue our journey …
We stopped by the duck pond where the kids got to feed the ducks through a funnel…
Feeding the chickens…
There were also deers, ostriches, bunnies…
Taking a short walk to the Jakun Village….
This is an animal trap.
A hut high up on stilts.
Getting a feel of how it’s like inside one of the houses.
