All my friends and my beloved tutor group are busily learning away at school by now, they're probably in there 3rd or 4th day. Instead I got to go to a butterfly farm about 20km from Gorge Town where there are 1000's of fluttery butterflies everywhere. All different colours surrounding you with prettiness and elegance. A wet and rainy walk took us to see-through t-shirts  and a nice little restaurant where yummy seafood soup was served and swimming costumes put on to avoid wet-t-shirt-syndrome. Another wet walk to a Batik factory where we learnt all about the making of Batik; a beautiful hand dyed and painted coth made of silk or cotton. We got Mummy a special surprise and Cian a nice shirt and Maeve a pretty dress. But before anyone says, "That's unfair, you didn't get anything," Let me tell you about our next destination! The Tropical Spice Garden. Which was like a sanctuary for all kinds of beautiful trees, animals and spices! We saw so much but it's huge, infact it'd spread over 8 acres. We went on all three trails; Ornamental, Jungle, Spice. We got to swing on a peaceful garden swing, marvel at beautiful plants and eat cinnamon. And lemon grass. And other spices. AND CINNAMON! I got to see a cinnamon tree and all these ginger and cloves and...

well, a lot of plants.So I reckon my day was better than any hand drawn and painted shirt, dress or tablecloth....

Well, maybe not tablecloth.
