Simple Bee Farm - father-and-son camping trip

I bought a livingsocial voucher for an overnight camping trip to Simple Bee Farm recently, hoping it would be a nice bonding time for the boys. Yup...boys only because well, it's too rugged for princesses.

So last Friday evening, Daalin and Joe went to Seremban to spend a night with Ah Mah and Ah Kong first. Joe had a good time playing chinese chess with Ah Kong.
Ah Kong also gave him a golf lesson the next morning.After lunch on Saturday, they made the drive to this farm which is located in some remote corner in the state of Malacca. They got terribly lost and arrived after more than 2 hours of driving. Seems it's the norm to get lost.Joining them for this trip was Brandon and his dad who made the drive from Yong Peng. It was great to have a buddy to make the trip much more enjoyable. They tried honey sticks......and sampled scoops of honey!I'm surprised at Joseph's bravery to do this...At night, they barbequed their own food and I believe this is Joseph's first barbeque experience. He thorougly enjoyed it and sounded really excited when I spoke to him over the phone. Daalin said it was nice to be in a rustic laid-back environment - a good change from city life. There was no hot shower. They bathed by pouring cold water over themselves. At night they slept in tents and the next morning they had a simple breakfast of fried mee hoon and hard boiled eggsThey relaxed on hammocks......and played badminton.There was also a small variety of other animals like rabbits, goats, chickens...Again, I'm surprised that Joseph dared to hold the rabbit. The rooster that woke him up...And this is an empty orang asli hut. Overall it was a good experience for both father and son and cousin and uncle. Next up, they are planning a visit to a kelong. It will be another boys outing because princesses need their comfy beds and hot showers!


  1. So cool! An all boys outing! Yea, agree that girls need hot shower with air cond and comfy beds. Mabul island almost cracked me up, I was almost in tears at night simply because the bed and air cond was not to my erm, preference. Joe is so brave to hold the rabbit!

  2. Agreed, definitely not for princesses. Haha!

  3. Thanks for the review. We are going there tomorrow so at least now I have a fairly good idea. Well...we are bring our princess there...hopefully she will enjoy the trip!

  4. This is so interesting. Can you publish the name of the farm and contact details. Tq

    1. Sorry but I can't remember the contact details. It was a groupon offer. You can just google Simple Bee Farm.
