Happy summer day mate!!
If you are looking for one interesting activity during summer, I would suggest you to go for fruit picking. Why? It is really fun and if I were to have another chance, I don't mind doing it again next time. Really. Well, I went to a farm yesterday with some of my Malaysian friends from Wollongong. Nestled on the banks of the wild and scenic Clyde River, lies the Clyde River Berry Farm which is surrounded by the highly valuable untouch environment.
I was very lucky to have the "hands on" experience of picking my own berries and then only I realize that nothing tastes better than the berries picked freshly in the height of summer by my own hands. There are different types of berries grown at the farm; blueberry, loganberry, youngberry, strawberry, tayberry, raspberry, marionberry, boysenberry and blackberry. Aduhh, berapa banyak berry daaaaa.. Tapi dalam banyak banyak berries yang disenaraikan tu, I cuma tau blueberry, strawberry, raspberry dgn blackberry je. The rest, I know nothing about!
Boysenberries.. I think..
Right on the arrival, we were given a bucket and the owner directed us to the 'berries of the day' in the ripest section of the farm. She gave some instructions about this and that and bla bla bla, then I started to hunt and gather berries of my own choice. Ohh, excitednye! Orang tak penah masuk kebun omputih camni la gayanya. Rasa tak tentu arah nak petik yang mana. Semua nampak sedapppp.
Bersedia menjadi tukang kutip berries tak bertauliah
Mari main petik petik blueberries, yay!
Raspberries pun sedap. Tapi banyak duri lah!
Mixed berries. Hasil titik peluh membanting tulang mengerah keringat.hihi..:p
Masa memetik tu, I carik yang gemok gemok and warna yang pekat pekat dengan harapan dapat yang manis. Lagi pekat warna berries tu, lagi manis la rasa dia. Tapi I takde la petik banyak sangat pon. Dapat berangan jadi pekebun berries kejap pun jadik la. Nak tunggu ade farm sendiri?? Pakai idak le jawabnya. Lepas dah puas petik memetik, I siap beli ice cream blueberry freshly made in front of you from the fresh berries. Satu AUD5. Mahal kan? Tapi sedap gila! Tak tipu! Worth the money paid.
Homemade blueberry flavored ice cream. Nyam nyam!
p/s: Bila cerita pasal berries ni I teringat ayat one of my friends. Perkataan lain untuk poo poo or buang air besar or b***k, dia panggil berry. Sedap je bunyi nak terberry instead of the other word nak terb***k.. Comel kan?? hihihi. Hey hey, apa yang you mengarut ni Amirah?? ;O
