humble eatery along the streets of "ah gua lane",
right before the nearly run down Shell Petrol Station....
TUA THOW which literately mean big head
was where we had our hearty breakfast.
My soupy bee hoon with
Fish slices, Pork Kidney, Pork liver, Oysters
only cost me 7RM!!!
Next up was a day of learning adventure,
First stop, Mushroom Farm
The Kampung House
The owner build this using his spare time after work,
which often meant from 9pm to 1am!!
There were even intricate wood carving done by the owner himself!
A hammock swinging with playful children
was seen under the house held up on stilts.
It's a beautiful sight!
Thou the room was dark,
the only light source we got was from the opened doorway....
You could smell the fresh mushroom scent!
I swear it seems like someone
was trying to cook up a big pot of mushroom soup!
Processed & Sterilized Sawdust
used to grow mushrooms
In The Process of Cultivation
The harvest of fresh mushrooms
ready to be sold or imported
It's the Kampung Spirit!
The owners took out their Kuali,
deep fry some delicious plump oyster mushrooms
with special sauce for our tasting!
I know this is going to sound absurd!
I've never seen a rubber tree up close!!
This is the first time ever.....
Isn't it amazing what we can get from nature?!?
allowed to roam freely.....
Looks like cherry blossom?!?!
It's water apple!
There were also passion fruit on the farm,
but I did not manage to get a good picture of it.....
You can smell it from a mile!
The smell of chicken POO!
Chickens in a row living in
Cheapskate overpriced HDB style property!!!!
*I could feel that they are staging Chicken Run soon!!!*
I know this makes me sound very Mountain Turtle....
But, this is also my first time seeing a cocoa tree!!!!
YES, you get your Yummy Godiva Chocolate from these trees!!!
Someone has been cleaning eggs in this lil make shift station
The size sorting machine....
The noisy machine was so gentle that
no eggs were harmed in the process of sorting!
The nicely sorted out eggs ready to be sold in the market
We manage to make
Passion Fruit Cheese Cake
from all the fresh product we got from the farms!
Cheese Cake for Tea Break
Dinner @ 有記XO Duck
Apart from the usual food we normally order,
we tried 3 new dishes.....
Claypot fish slices,
Claypot fatty Pork,
and Assam Fish.....
Everything tasted GREAT!
If I had to choose a favourite dish for the night,
It has to be the Assam Fish...
It was tangy and sour....
Perfect for my taste buds....
But, Kitson felt that the sourish taste was too overwhelming....
Signs of a Satisfied Meal!!
You could hardly miss out on this restaurant,
as there are 2 extremely GIANT URN right in front of it!
These pots are used for making the trademark double boil soup.....
In my opinion, nice, but overpriced!
