Lunch by the Paddy Fields of Kedah
Something has to be said about having lunch by the paddy fields of Kedah, the Rice Bowl of Malaysia, and a sumptuous one at that.
Its pretty basic down-to-earth fare, served buffet style. Definitely not of the kind served nor found at 5-Star locales. But sumptuous nevertheless.
The sight of already-harvested paddy fields adds to the rustic feel that is the kampung (Malay for village) setting, what with thatched roofs et al.
An experience to be recommended and definitely, one to be repeated.

Scenery from inside the restaurant, which is typical of most eateries set in the rustic ambience of the locale. The use of traditional roofing material helps to provide a cool atmosphere despite situated adjacent to paddy fields. The food served is down to earth but sumptuous, and the prices more than reasonable. Definitely worth another visit. (April 2017 ; Vivo V5 ; nachmeinemeinung @ All rights reserved)

View of a paddy field, already harvested, as far as the eye can see. No wonder the state of Kedah is called the Rice Bowl of Malaysia. Soon, the fields will be cleared and made ready for the new batch of paddy seedlings, and the cycle is repeated. Such scenes are replicated all over the Rice Bowl of Kedah.
