Over in Sydney, the morning prayer time started at 4.48 am. By 4.20 am I was awake and after readying ourselves, we ensembled at 6 am for the tirp to the farm. Boarded the bus and it took us about an hour to reach the farm. The muslim-owned farm, owned by Global Ikhwan, was about 100 acres.
Upon reaching the farm, we were greeted by the sight of small herd of goats, Angus cows and horses. Everyone was excited for the animals were friendly and we were able to touch them and pet them.
I love the farm house and its surrounding areas. There was a set of swing, which I had fun swinging as well as taking photos. Besides that, I had fun stroking and feeding the goats.
My oh my! the goats were very aggressive when it comes to feedng time hahaha…. the only thing I missed was riding the horse. Too bad! Maybe next time 😉
While I was having fun with the goats and other animals, the jemaah in our group performed their Qurban one by one. Alhamdulillah everything went smoothly.
Besides playing with the animals, I had fun loving this little boy, Mu’az. He was sooo adorable. Not afraid of strangers and he took to me so easily 🙂
It felt so nice to be hugging a little body to my bosom …. so cuddly! Teasingly I told my two acquired friends, Lin and Sufi, that I shall named my first grandson Mu’az 😄😄😄
It was great to be at the farm with everyone very friendly and after the activities, we were treated to a scrumptious lunch.
By 2 pm, we said goodbye and proceed to Wyong Chocolate Factory. Spend a bit of time buying chocolates and then we made our way to Paddy’s Market.
Over at Paddy;’s Market, we, the 3 sisters (Lin, Sufi and I), had a ball choosing souvenirs for our family members at home. We had fun selecting and laughing over our own antics in choosing the souvenirs. The souvenirs were mostly t-shirts, magnets, pens etc. I bought a few for my husband, kids, nieces, grandnieces and grandnephews.
After Paddy’s Market, we went back to the hotel and had our dinner. After that it was free and easy time. I chose to rest in our room instead of going out. Time to preserve my energy 😉
