Tulip Festival

We went to Tesselaar Tulip Festival 2 months back with YAD 3 Melbourne. Not too sure what exactly YAD does, but it is a Buddhist society where Yumeko joined back in M'sia and they have it here in Melbourne as well. They organized a tulip farm day trip which include a BBQ lunch @ Silvan Reservoir Park which cost us abt $20 per person. 11 of us from Swinburne went as the Tulip Fest only held once a year and coincidently that was the last day of the festival. Mustn't loose this great once a year opportunity.

Be ready to see loads of beautifuuuuuuuuullllllll tulips!!!!

How i wish i'm a kid. It's FREE admission!

Tadaaa!! Nice horrrrr.... But the thing was, it was drizzling the whole day.. Sad case... =.=

White tulips...

Orangie ones....

Part of the farm..

Surrounded by tulipssssss.....

Look how sad we were bcoz of the rain... n it was so coooolllldddd that day.. My big fat michelin jacket gotta go out 2geta with me..

Look at all our sneakers... All got covered by muds! Thanks to the rain lor.. =.=

Mine's worst coz its WHITE! Took me quite sometime to clean it..

Arghh.. can't be bothered ler. Take pics 1st.. :P

A group one. Dunno where the rest of the group went. All went scattered in the farm..

On the same day, we met Pei Lin, Nic and her "lover" Ashley in the farm. She's feeding me with Dutch Poffertjes.

Nic was jealous... lol. look at the way she stared at her lover... :P
According to the description board, Poffertjes are found all over in Holland. They are tiny pancakes baked in a cast iron griddle, until light and fluffy. lol.

This is how it looks like... yummie but quite ex though.. this plate costs us abt 6 bucks!

After spending 2 hrs + in the farm, its time to move on the the Silvan Reservoir Park for our BBQ lunch!
This is how the park looks like..

These were the foods we had... It was a vegetarian BBQ. We didn't know it was a vegetarian BBQ till we saw the foods. But it was soooooo good! Really never tried this kinda BBQ b4. Some of the foods even looked and tasted like meat, but of coz, all made out of flour. :P

We had sooo much for lunch, too full. So must exercise a bit.. Let's JUMP!!!

Groupie... ^^

B4 goin home, we were given these mini moon cakes as a remembrance coz it was near Mid-Autumn Fest that time.

It was sooo good... Love it!

That's it for the Tulip Fest updates. Toodles!
