Desa Cattle Dairy Farm | Mesilau Highland, Kundasang, Sabah

Thursday, January 16, 2014

I was back in KK for a good 2-week long last December, that was probably the longest "stay-back" for me since ever I came KL for work. Of course, I am being thankful and grateful that I can do my work from home daily that I need not to apply any leaves. My sister-in-law and I had planned for our mini family New Year countdown getaway at Ranau. I love Ranau for its cool and chilly weather, but definitely not fancy the super cold weather. *brr* We wanted to book the whole bungalow, but it was fully booked and ended up booked the chalet at Strawberry Garden instead. The next morning on the New Year, we went down to this Desa Cattle Dairy Farm at Kundasang. ~(˘▾˘)~



You can either park your car outside the entrance or drive in, of course you have to pay for the entrance fee before you're allowed to enter. The entrance fees - RM4/adult and RM3/children. It was very, very cold and we decided to just drive in and of course drive super slow to enjoy the whole amazing view at there. Many of the tourists who visited here stated that it's like a "mini" New Zealand. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧


As you can see above, there's few activities that allow tourists or visitors to interact with the animals as well as get to know about raw milk processing. Those who wish to take their pre-wedding photos also can be done here. 


Many tourists prefer to park outside and walk in all the way from the entrance not only to enjoy and take plenty of photos of the superb view. They also stopped by next to the fences to take pictures of all these moo-moo cows! Seems like they are building something behind there...

Heading to the calf pen!
We didn't know there's different timing for different activities. Since we arrived around 10am, we only get to do the calf feeding! It was, of course, one of the most anticipating activities for me. ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ

Haylie & Caroline
By now, you guys should have already known that I have a little sister named Haylie! You must be wondering of our age gap, it's freaking 20 years old. Anyway, it wasn't sunny but she put on her shades or else she didn't want to take any pictures with her swollen eyelid! Yes, she is quite a drama princess in the house. (◍•﹏•)

Calves in pen
Look at those calves! In case you're wondering if they are always kept in their pens all the time, fret not, most of the time, they will be released and joined their "parents" freely on the green field. They're all well taken care of at here.

Haylie enjoys feeding the kid!
Little Haylie was over excited and rushed my mom to get her some of the grass for her to feed the calves and kids! If am not mistaken, you have to pay RM1 per stalk grass and RM1.50 per bottle milk. 

Kid enjoys munching the grass!
Caroline & baby moo moo cow :p
The calves and kids won't and couldn't hurt you, but if you have long hair, you need to make sure you tie them off! Else, whenever you get near to them, they will try to reach to your hair and start to munch! My hair almost, almost get eaten by this little boy here! Eric said that must because my hair look like grass, in a way telling me that my hair quite dry! I didn't bring my hair lotion and you can see how frizzy they were! Pfft. (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ 

Gilbert feeds the kid with the bottled milk
To me, the most enjoyable part during the feeding session would be feeding them with bottled milk! The way they drink it from the bottle just... Too cute! I think my mom bought 6-7 bottled milks for us to feed them. We spent almost an hour playing and feeding the calves and kids. ٩(^ᴗ^)۶

Haylie
Now... You can see the main reason why little Haylie put on her shades. It's gone by noon time, though, must be bitten by the bed bugs night before. 

Haylie and Gilbert
Oh! Look at the long, sharp horn on the billy goat! It has beard too! (๑✧◡✧๑)

Yours truly
The view
We could not resist ourselves from taking a few snaps with such amazing views from every angle! It's a must to visit during your visit in the land below the wind, Sabah. Do not forget to get yourself with the fresh cow and/or goat milk too! All of them loving it and Eric regretted for not buying more to enjoy! We didn't try the gelato as it was way too cold to enjoy such cold goodness! Of course, YOU should give it a try! (๑>ᴗ<๑)
