Our self guided tour turned our pretty good as Ben’s cousin sister and husband are quite knowledgeable about herbs as they have a herbal tea shop. They recognized a number of the herbs in the Tropical Spice Garden.
They pointed out to us a fruit from a plant that tasted very sweet as shown below.
He asked to suck the sap from it and after a while take a sip of water. We were amazed that the water tasted so sweet in our mouth.
Bamboo growth along the way.
We came upon a rest stop where we can help ourselves with some tea.
Natural stream of water for rinsing the cup before and after we drink form it.
The tea was sweetened with a natural sweetener called Misai Kucing or Stevia which is believed to help reduce high blood pressure.

We came upon a house across the water which used to belong to the first Prime Minister of Malaysia.
