Many kids nowadays are living in the virtual world behind the screen. Most of them have isolated themselves with the mother nature and so do I. I have spent most of my time on Facebook and gaming. I still remember the feeling when the first time I visited this Saanen Dairy Goat Farm, I was deeply attracted by the environment at there. It was the first time in my life that I was this close with the goat and that feeling still fresh in my mind.

After finished the mural painting at Sacred Heart primary school, She Fu has came to Saanen Dairy Goat Farm. I cant remember how many times I have went to this goat farm, but one thing for sure is that every time I went to the goat farm, I was so happy and excited.

Due to the narrowness of the path to the goat farm, our bus dropped us at the big field near the entrance and then we all walked to the goat farm.

Our last activity at the goat farm is making soap. First, pour in the liquid into one third of the container.

Then, choose the shape you like and put it on the liquid and wait for the liquid to solidify.

Next, drop a few drops of colour pigment on the solid and then pour the liquid on it again. Now, it is time to let our imagination run wild and it is the time to test our skill. We have to draw the pattern we like with a stick before the liquid become solid.

After completing the pattern, pour the last layer of the liquid and it is done.
