Allan's Water At Fraser's Hill, Pahang.

We have done visiting the Flora Garden and placed the edibles that we bought from the garden into the car. Then we walked a short distance to Allan's Water which is next to the Flora Garden. It was very quiet. Besides us, there was another car load of visitors.
Entrance to Allan's Water.
Entrance is free.
Allan's Water is a small lake next to the Flora Garden. It was a former reservoir converted into a recreational park for paddle boating.
The paddle boats were kept in the shed at the far end. We took some photos and watched the big fishes that came to the edge of the pond. We sat and relaxed a while.

Then Jehovah said to Moses,
"Take the elders of Israel with you and
lead the people out of Mount Horeb.
I will meet you there at the rock.
Strike it with your rod - the same one you struck the Nile with
- the water will come pouring out, enough for everyone!"
Moses did as he was told, and the water gushed out!
(Exodus 17:5-6, The Living Bible-TLB)

Breakfast & Visit To The Flora Garden At Fraser's Hill.

The first night at Fraser's Hill was cold because of the rain. I did get a few hours of sleep and I was up very early the next morning. I went to the hall to do some reading until the others were awake. Then we put on our walking shoes and went for our morning walk. We had a very interesting walk, exploring the wild plants along the roadsides. That will be in another post. We returned to the bungalow just in time for breakfast.
 The dining table was all set up for breakfast.
 Big boys and girls need to wash up before breakfast.
 Toasted bread with butter and homemade orange jam.
 My plate of 2 sausages and 2 over-medium eggs.
We had hot coffee with our breakfast.
After a hearty breakfast, we were ready for our outing.
 There was a light rain and it slowed to a drizzle as we drove out to the little town.
 Passing by the clock tower covered with creeper plants in the town centre.
 After a short drive, we reached the Flora Garden at about 9.35 am.
Fraser's Edible Garden
The place was quiet since it was a weekday.
We got to see this vegetable pear plant which is a climbing vine.
 This green vegetable pear is called Chayote or Mirliton.
White Radish patch.
First time I learned to handpicked these fresh and sweet strawberries.
Saw a few of this long and spiky bitter gourd or melon vine growing on a fence.
Can someone please confirm whether this is edible?
Orangey Red African Daisy
Lavender plants
Fir Seedlings?
Big Pink Hibiscus flower
 We left behind our footprints but we took more than photographs. We left with plastic bags of edibles from the garden. We bought Chayote vegetable pears, white radish, ginger and strawberries.

 Then Peter began to mention all that he and
the other disciples had left behind.
"We've given up everything to follow you," he said.
(Mark 10:28, The Living Bible-TLB)

The following photos are for joining Saturday's Critters. 
 Back on the grounds of the bungalow, we noticed this big ant on the concrete path.
 We zoomed in for a shot of the ant.
 We met 3 black dogs on our way out for the morning walk. 
 They were taken up with their own business.
Looked like this one was having some disagreement with the other 2 dogs.
 This looked like the leader of the pack.

In the morning you will see more of His glory;
for He has heard your complaints against Him
(for you aren't really complaining against us-who are we?).
The Lord will give you meat to eat in the evening,
and bread in the morning. Come now before Jehovah
and hear His reply to your complaints.
(Exodus 16:7-9, The Living Bible-TLB)
