Return to River Cottage......

Hello u'ol. How is everyone today. Today, whimsy is in a "gardening" mood. Above is a picture taken from hhtp://sallygardens.typepad.com/ , it's a hanging basket tomato plants. I just love the mat salleh gardening cottage-y lifestyle. Something like Return to River Cottage (in channel AFC Astro), where the Mat salleh goes back to basic living and grow their own food...how glorious kan! Anyway, this sallygarden blog is worth a visit. How this family are fed up with the rat race in the city and purchase a farm in Ireland and goes back to basic. They plant food, raise livestock, make own cheese, butter, wine and ham etc....It chronicles their daily farming life and how happy they felt compared to living in the city.

I think as of today, that is my dreams (i have many many many whimsical dreams). Whimsy today's dream is to go back to Keningau and live something like the org putih...plant few vegetables, raise 3 chicken (ayam kampung!), collect eggs in the morning..hmmmmmmm. How very healthy kan!!!
Can that idyllic idea/dreams be translated to raelity in a small holding in Keningau? Hmmmmmm.....I wish we have 4 season weather kan, then we shall have winter, spring, summer, autumn....then we can plant all the 'english vegetables", and create a garden like Jamie Oliver's, to have an open air oven and cook pizza amidst the vegetables...muawahahahahahahah. Well...it is a dream...and sometimes dreams do come true.....
(p/s I 'm off to Lahad Datu and Kinabatangan tomorrow till friday)
