Tourist Exploration: Farms in Singapore

Have been staying mostly in Sunny Singapore, so let me introduce areas which is a to-go for those who love to explore 

Farms in Singapore. Yes you heard it right.

Made our way on our bicycles to Lim chu kang for the farms - 

There are 2 ways to get to these farms
Option 1 (Effective 1 Dec 2014):
From Kranji MRT station, take the Kranji Countryside Express Bus to the places you wish to visit in Kranji and are participating in the service (pay by EZ Link or cash). Click here to view the Kranji Countryside Express Bus operating schedule

Option 2:
From opposite of Choa Chu Kang MRT station, take public bus service 975 (from bus stop number 44531)

#1 Bollywood veggies - we had the honor of having uncle Bollywood veggies to bring us around the garden and explanation of the vegetation 

Bollywood Veggies:
100 Neo Tiew Road,
Singapore 719026 (Kranji)
Wed to Fri :
from 9
.30am to 6.30pm

Sat, Sun & Public Holidays :
from 8am to 6.30pm

Before we left we filled our stomach
The veggie platter seems the best. 
The guys said the nasi lemak was good - but my idea is come to veggie garden and eat something with no veggies? 
Our soup of the day was just a few pieces of carrots with radish soup. 
 And for the jackfruit salad it's acquired taste. A little curry powder in it so its a little spicy to me. 

A good place to chill though :)

#2 jurong frog farm
Lim Chu Kang Lane 6 Singapore 718864
*Note: Only Sat,Sun, PH is open to Public from 9am to 5.30pm.
Other days appointment is needed

Arriving there, firstly i had to kiss a frog to find my Prince Charming haha
(ermm.. you know I'm kidding right)

It's great that they have ambassadors/ workers of the frog farm standing there to explain any questions that we had. Great information.

And also the tadpoles
I felt bad because while walking through the farm all I could think of was 田鸡粥 frog porridge.

And of course while we were there, the vain guys took to the hasima and bought many bowls to beautify their skin. 

I find it quite sadistic to eat frog leg meat beside the alive frogs though. Hahaha

No. 3 Lim Chu Kang, Agrotech Park Lane 4, Singapore 718859

Farm Operating Hours (for farm visits by public):
9am to 4pm (Mon, Wed to Sun, including Public Holidays)
Farm is closed on every Tues (except Public Holidays)

I was in india for a year and drank india version of goat milk which is pure and hence a little sour - and I was not used to it. But surprisingly the one here is sweetened which tastes just like normal milk. 

An educational and eye opener trip. Good to bring children along too :)
