I've just spent a great weekend on a homestay program, living in the home of a Malay family in the agricultural north of Malaysia. The state of Kedah is known as the "rice basket" of Malaysia. In this photo, I'm standing on a real working padi field. Also tried my hand at rubber tapping - Malaysia used to be #1 in rubber production.

  1. Hello Venon,

    Thanks for postcard!

    Is this the going to be first rice crop for the year, and how many more -two, perhaps?

    When is the monsoon season to start, and how do farmers prepare for it?
