Yesterday was a very tiring day. Noni (my best friend) and I went to MAHA 2010 - Malaysia Agriculture, Hoticulture and Agrotourism Exhibition 2010 held at UPM Serdang from 26th November to 5th December. The exhibition was hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Agrobased Industries and organised by the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA). It is the biggest event of the year for the industry, held biennially to showcase and flaunt Malaysia's best producers, farmers, fishermen and stockman. It was extra crowded, now being school holidays. Buses load of people came from all over Malaysia and to talk about the jam in UPM...well you can guess it! I parked my car at the designated parking and took their feeder bus to the site. All I can say that it was more or less the same as 2 years ago. Except the crowd was much bigger this time!
I was more interested looking at their vegetables like tomatoes, chillies and greens.
turn up like them....
Anyway, after vowing not to come again next 2 years, we went home with very tired feet! But I had a wonderful surprise when I got home...I received packets of seeds from Diana (Malay-Kadazan Girl)! Thank you so much Diana...hope you have happy holidays with your family too!
......and last but not least, I also bought lots of packets of seeds at MAHA 2010
My happy thoughts of MAHA was we had a lot of food tasting along the booths
that both of us didnt have to take lunch!! :-)
Happy Gardening everybody!
