Country Living 2

Clearing a 2.5 acre secondary jungle is no piece of cake. But Mr. Lim is doing it leisurely. Consumed by his vision of living in the country side surrounded by fruit trees, flowers and plants, he supervises the clearing of the jungle, levelling of the land and digging of a long ditch to drain away water from an abandoned pond. A large part of the land has been cleared.

A ditch stretching as far as the eye could see has been dug

We found a tortoise while digging the ditch
