Working at Levin

Ain’t gonna be a where-to-play post, but this entry is about my job at Levin, still a sharing huh?

Basically we are hired by a company named Kapiti Green Ltd to harvest the mature vege, Zucchini.
I’m totally unsure about what is a Zucchini (Was it a Japanese food or something?) until I saw it…
No! Should I say until I tasted it?

First of all, let me show you, what is a farm.


See? Say me a kampong girl, but this is actually my first time seeing such a HUGE vegetable farm.
And this is just a SMALL corner of the farm
If you count this as 10 rows, I bet you, there're 100 of them in total.

My granny used to have a small corner to grow some organic vegetables for homey used, but it’s not a thing to compare with this hahahaha

Next question, what is Zucchini?

It’s a small cucumber-shaped vegetable marrow; typically dark green, whose fruit are eaten when small.

Gosh you know how much I hate and love Zucchini now?

The picture you see above is a new farm where my beloved Zucchini whose suppose to bring me money is still a small breed. When it’s fully grown, well, not much different with the pictures below.

Just the leaves are bigger, the stems getting stronger, and the Zucchini grows longer and fatter.

And to my surprise, this vege was really a …. Weirdo course it can grows SOOOOO BIG within one day.

It’s like today you see a small baby cucumber, tomorrow you’ll see a huge, really HUGE melon. And this huge melon is useless so we normally just cut and throw it away.

And I was telling my boss, “If you don’t mind, I can take this HUGE MELON go back home and make dong gua long ngan (Melon Longan)” But of course, it’s not a melon but Zucchini @@

Okay, here’s a stop.
See you again. More farmer life is to be expected.

Good Luck.
