First up, a stop at Kow Po for ice-cream. I didn't enjoy this though. Thought that only the durian ice-cream was nice. And why bother with ice-cream when you're planning to binge on the real thing? Heh.
Chocolate for the big girl, strawberry for the small girl
After the ice-cream it was supposed to be only a short trip to my uncle's farm. But due to a whole series of miscommunications that saw us making umpteen u-turns, it was a couple of hours before we made it! We did make a stop for a noodle lunch and to check out uncle's new house.
The place has old-fashioned charm, no?
OK we're city folk, let's pose with durians!
Kids messed around on this weighing scale
There are actually bedrooms upstairs
Take a pic of this before I polish it off
The durians were very good - bitter, creamy, packed with flavour. We ate and ate. After that, one more attraction.... a walk to and around uncle's various fish ponds! The kids had a blast running around and throwing fish food (more onto the grass than into the ponds!)
Fish food, we need more fish food!
SE refused to eat durian. But agreed to pick up this 'baby durian' for a photo...
Hold like this, mummy?
My uncle packed us off with containers of durian to take home. Thanks, uncle!
