In Hall D2 is where all the food sampling actions happen. I grabbed so many tiny pieces of sample karipap, chicken nuggets, fish burger patties, kek batik sarawak, and baby cups of seaweed juice, roselle, dragon fruit enzyme, etc. Aah I was happy ;D

Wow…our country can produce so many unusual types of fruits and technology. All of us stand to benefit If only they market it properly. I love those cherries.

huh? why would they kill a dolphin?
and do you eat the bees with the honey? =P

haha, so colorful pics and so much yummy food to try!

everything looks so interesting. free samples are always a welcoming sight :P
but the poor bees….what a pity.

this kind of gomen/gomen sponsored projects invariably attract more of a certain kind of people ( or a certain target group) , which we think is absurdly bad strategy ( or issit intentional ? ) , considering the no of national treasures you have just uncovered , and which few know exist
( including yours truly)

Cool pics! I would love to go too and hope I will have time to pop by next weekend. Didn’t know we have cherries here too. If only they can produce enuff for the market hor?

i went there today..the weather and my walking distance is..urgh..blister for me..there are so many things there to see..i even saw out TNC and my lecturer there..and there is even a fight there…my weather jus freak me out..haha..

ck lam – Ya I was surprised by the various types of fruits that can grow here. If we tap into the market with these produce we can surely benefit from it

J2Kfm – The dolphin is at the marine section. Maybe they dug it from the sea bed ;D The dead bees are for display purposes.. DO NOT EAT

buzzingbee – Yes free samples can be my lunch & dinner :P

BSG – The exhibitors mainly consist of the certain group target but it was quite informative and a lot of opportunities in farming are introduced to the public who are interested! It’s a bi-annual event so it’s nice to give a visit once :)

Precious Pea – The traffic can be quite bad. Cars need to queue up to go in especially weekend. Try to go early or take the shuttle bus :) Yalor.. if only the cherries are marketed then we don’t have to pay exorbitant price for imported ones

christine – Wah your visit so happening! I went for 2nd time yesterday. The heat was skin-burning but I took tram anyway and visit the farm animals area

Nice exhibition… can see so many stuff we never heard or see before. But I guess the best part is the free food area ^^

Your pictures are very well taken. I wonder if you had taken more shots of the carnivorous terrarium. Took some shots of it but didn’t turn out as nice as yours.
