On FFF [Foster Father's Farm]

Maternal Grandpa used to own a piece of land when I was younger. I can't really remember what grew on that farm. But I remembered there was a small stream running through. Sis and I used to love to go to the farm. Every other weekends when we would visit our maternal grandparents, we looked forward to go to the farm. However, the memory seems to be losing. All I could remember about the farm was the small stream, and the fishes we caught from the stream. Which, somehow, fell from the balcony and all the fishes died. We didn't have a farm to visit now... Grandpa sold the farm...

Until...

Foster father in midland Sarawak brought us to his BIG piece of land. 2 other friends and I were walking back from another long house after we did our health screening when my foster father passed by in his car. He was on his way to the farm and wondered if we wanted to tag along. Heck yea of course!

Foster father was doing some rubber plantation, growing rubber tree hybrid of different species and sell them off to the ministry of agriculture.

Also, he has a fish pond...

And 3 pigs...

Which one was already pregnant.

And numerous chicken.

Other than that, there's some other plants in the farm as well.

Among others, he was experimenting on planting Dragon fruit.

Apparently, of the 6 foster kids he had, I'm the only one who visited his farm. The other two friends that went together were staying in another room and were not his foster kids. So after we came back from the farm, he told his other foster kids how they'd missed the chance.

Blimey! Lucky me!

Bong, I miss the time 3 of us visited the farm. In fact, for me it was the nicest part in baktisiswa...

我想很久很久之后我还会记得那天我们三个人的傍晚,当时的微风,当时的阳光和蓝天。那黄昏太美,让我的心都醉了。
