after breakfast K drove to a far end of the Kundasang town, where we waited around 15mins for the entrance to the Desa Dairy Farm to open. we were welcomed by a breathtaking view of the surroundings. i'm glad we got there early. we could see a few cows feeding on grass in the distance. once we got in, i was impressed with the strict standard of cleanliness maintained around the compound. we bought fresh milk, chocolate-flavored milk and yogurt, all made on-site. we sat at the outdoor seating area of the main building and enjoyed a few moments alone. the best milk and yogurt i've tasted in a long time. i'm not a fan of milk but i wished i could've bought more to bring home in a few days, but these won't last long outside the fridge, no preservatives. so, so good. we walked to the Calf Pen, we watched some kids feed the animals with so much joy on their faces. we watched some workers doing their daily job from the Observatory for the Milking Parlour.
before leaving, we spent sometime near the green pasture again, taking it all in. what a view. this place is known as the 'Little New Zealand of Sabah' for a reason. we went to the souvenir shop and bought fridge magnets and shirts, turning into your typical tourists, of course. couldn't help it when everything looked so well made. also the fact that it was a weekday and there was no crowd, we took our time exploring the farm. a morning well spent. i remember thinking i wish i could visit again, maybe not soon, but one day.
