There is also a little cafeteria where you can samples some of these fresh fruits…

While we were enjoying our little healthy snack, our guide was also busy weaving a grasshopper which he then made some of us pose with… Then he proceeded to give out rings made with coconut leaves to the ladies…

We also got to feed the goats, and handfeed the cat fishes in the pond… Yikes… I was trying to be brave and try it but I cannot because I got my fingers chomped on and they were just slimy and wriggly… Worse then a snake…

Our guide was brilliant in creating 3D images and made us pose different style for amazing effects.. From climbing a coconut tree to handling some winter melons…
