As I mentioned in my previous post, I grew up in Kedah and Perlis, where almost everywhere are paddy fields. But despite having grown up at the states that’s known as the nation’s ricebowl, my first time visiting a paddy factory and a paddy gallery is when I’m already a grown up who is well into my early 30s and in Sekinchan, Selangor at that. The visit was organized by Foodilifecious and Potboy Groceries. Funny how life turns out, eh?
Visiting paddy gallery with blogger friends. All hyped up and excited to learn more about paddies and rice.
