Finally I met up with my blog follower Ellie Mak after talking about it for months. Very sweet of her to gift me beautiful #organic
grown by her grandma in the highlands of Ba'kelalan, #Sarawak
. The rice has a lovely sweet aroma and exquisite texture.
Thanks Ellie, for the little introduction to your beautiful hometown Ba'kelalan, one of the villages in the Bario Highlands of Sarawak, about 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level and 4 km from the border with Indonesian Kalimantan. #Sarawak
is one states of #Malaysia
, situated in Borneo. #bariorice
is one of the much sought after indigenous crops, as it is grown traditionally and without chemicals. Reading up about Ba'kelalan makes me want to follow Ellie there when she goes back for a visit :D One day..
