Visiting Uncle Fadzil on the farm...

More from my guest blogger, the other Whitney!

After flying to Penang, we drove to my Grampa's parents house in Alor Setar. The other day, we visited my Uncle Fadzil's farm. On the way, we passed by a rubber tree plantation. As you can see on the right, there is a little bucket attached to the rubber tree. Scores are made on the tree and at the end of the score, the bucket is hung. Over time, white sap drips out and slowly falls into the bucket. That white sap is then made into the rubber we use everyday! It was really interesting! 
When we got to the farm we saw a giant chicken house! It was so long, I could hardly see the end. As we were walking in the corn field, we were surprised to come upon a big, black SCORPION! I have never seen any scorpion that was that scary and big!!! We put Grampa's cell phone down and they were the same size! Supposedly the more little the scorpions are, the more poisonous, but this one looked pretty mean. 

While in Port Dixon, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia, we went to look at a Chinese Buddhist temple. They had different statues of Buddha and here is one of Guan Yin. She was an empress of the Chen Dynasty and her nun name was "Guanyin"

This is the Chinese Buddha!

I had lots of fun seeing the Chinese Buddhist temple. I have never been to one before and I had an excellent first experience! I am looking forward to lots more fun in Malaysia!!!

We're going to Langkawi island in North Malaysia to see the beautiful sights there! :)

Note from Gramma:  We won't have wifi there, so check in on us in about 3 days!
