Of Ostriches and Lucky Buns

Last weekend, we were in Seremban. Gung-gung suggested bringing me to the ostrich farm. What? Birds again? I just went to the KL Bird Park a few days ago (kindy's field trip). I've already seen so many birds there, including ostriches. Still want to go? Gung-gung seemed very keen, so off we went, to the Ostrich Farm near Pantai, Negeri Sembilan.



Besides ostriches, we also saw other animals such as deer, cows, buffaloes, a camel and cranes

Mummy kept shouting to daddy "Please don't go too near, please don't go too near!!" She was afraid that the ostrich might peck my head or face haha

The ostriches we saw here belonged to the Negeri Sembilan Veterinarian Department so entrance was free. We didn't go into the Jelita Ostrich Farm because kiamsiap (stingy) mummy refused to pay the entrance fee of RM8 per person. She felt that the three activities offered were not interesting enough. The 3 simple activities were... a chance to stand on a real ostrich egg (which I've already tried before), watch an ostrich race and sit on an ostrich (sit only, on a stationary one).

When I overheard the adults' conversation about not entering the farm, I quickly insisted on sitting on an ostrich. Mummy didn't believe I would dare to sit on an ostrich because being the coward that I am, I wouldn't even touch a kitten or a puppy! I kicked up a small fuss when she turned down my request.




We spent a little more time "bird-watching" before leaving for Giant in Senawang for some grocery shopping.

And later, mummy bought my FAVOURITE bun for me from one of the coffeeshops in town. The LUCKY vanilla cream bun in the same old yellow packaging that mummy used to love as a kid...

Still looks the same as it was decades ago

We always come home with at least 5 buns. I love it very, very much and everytime I eat this, I would tell mummy "can you buy this bun for me forever and ever and ever?"

Mmmmm... How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

After eating, blow up the wrapper and "POP" it!

  7. If my Angel requested to sit on the ostrich, I think I would be worried the ostrich would ran away with her on its back too, hahahahaha ...... but she was brave enough to actually requested mommy for that :)

    The bun ..... is it really that nice? What filling is that? But the packaging really would bring back a lot of memories hor ..... never saw such packaging in the market nowadays.

  12. Yes, you ring my bell about the bread. I remembered I love buying it from the uncle who is selling it from his motorbike.

    At least Chloe was brave to stand quite near to the ostrich. For Sarah, she kept asking me to bring her away from it.
