Over the Hari Raya break we went on our very first farm stay with our friends at Kee’s Farmstay in Pertang, Negeri Sembilan. The drive was about 2 hours going up and down hill which reminds me of Cameron Highland. We also passed by some quaint Malay villages. Our group consists of 3 families (6 adults and 5 children). We had steamboat and bbq dinner plus lots of beers. You can imagine the amount of luggages we brought along.
My friends stayed in the Family chalet which has 2 rooms with fans while we stayed in a single chalet with aircond. Not exactly farm stay huh? We had a great time eating and chatting. The only unpleasant thing during our stay was the flies which came in hundreds during meal time. They all disappeared at night. Anyway, the kids loved being in the farm as they went fishing, cycling, chasing after ducks, picking flowers and just running around freely. There was no tv or internet connection, just connection with Mother Nature. Below are some photos taken during our stay.

It was great to wake up and smell the fresh air in the morning. Birds were chirping and we were awaken by the honking sounds of the geese which were just behind our chalet. Staying in a farm is a good way to leave behind the busy life and experience the simple things we take for granted. Nothing beats being outdoors. We are going back again at the end of the year
