This is not just a pretty picture, it is part of the important irrigation system in paddy planting.
Ah Ma House, which sells specialty cakes and biscuits.
These paddy fields will be ready for harvesting in about 2 weeks.
A rice farmer telling us that rice crop takes between 90 to 100 days from planting to harvest. The "Pearl" variety is not allowed to be planted in Malaysia because of pests. Harvesting is done by large rice harvesters like to one below, which was parked a short distance away.

The Mango King shop, where we were given samples of very nice ciku - not too sweet. We then bought a one kg bag of it for RM10.
