Kampung Retreat...

"Maybe we never really know how good we have it, until it"s gone..."
(Save the best for last...)
(Harvest for the day...)

More than 10 years ago, when we bought the kebun Sungai Rambai, it was a jungle, literally. The previous owner who was a retired teacher sold off this property at a relatively cheap price as the family was not keen of staying far from civilization. The nearest house is a few miles away and the nearest town is the scarcely populated pekan Sungai Rambai. The kebun is isolated and mostly surrounded by fruit orchards and small-scale palm oil plantation. The kebun itself is a 3.5 acres durian orchard with some dokong, rambutan and cempedak planted here and there. When the kids were still schooling we built a small chalet, the design idea came from one of the chalet we saw along the beach of Trengganu.
We use to spend weekends and holidays in the kebun, especially during the fruiting seasons.
