05/06/2010 Kedah Day Tour

Last Sat, I have went to Kedah for day tour with some friends. We didn't visit many places, just Lye Huat Garden, Paddy Museum and Sains Museum. Not many photos was taken though throughout the trip.

First place that we had visited was Lye Huat Garden.

"Lye Huat Garden is a recreational park in Kubang Pasu District, Kedah. It comprises a man-made lake, a miniature landscaped garden, and a terra cotta garden. Visitors also get to enjoy the koi carps in the lake, and view its collection of ceramic figurines.

Lye Huat Garden was founded by Dato Lim Lye Huat in 2002. It was originally called Lye Huat Stone Art Gallery when it was first built in 1994. Dato Lim built it for his personal enjoyment. However, through the suggestion of friends, he decided ton open it to the public. In addition to being a tourist attraction in northern Kedah, Lye Huat Garden was also a venue for several national competitions including the National Flower, Hornfish, Bonsai and Suiseki Competition launched by the then prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, in 2002. In 2004, the International Bonsai and Suiseki Competition was held here, and officiated by the Sultan of Kedah." (

After spending one and a half hour in the garden, we went for lunch. After that we went to Paddy museum. There's nothing much to see in the museum other than the revolving gallery visitors can admire the massive 103m mural without moving an inch.

I only captured 2 photos in the Paddy Museum.

After 1 hour in the Paddy Museum, we departed to the Science Museum nearby. No photos was taken in the museum as I was busy exploring around, and actually not much to be snap in the museum as well.

We left the museum and headed back to Penang at around 4 something. Though not many photos were taken that day, yet it's another enjoyable journey with my friends.
