First Time To Pomelo Plantation At Tambun

IT WAS AN UNPLANNED OUTING TO THE POMELO FARM... I took my friend for a meal in Gunong Rapat, it was around 3pm, too late to have lunch and too early for dinner.  Anyway, we had something light, some fish balls with vegetables and cooling cincau drinks.  Ooopsss.. no food pictures in this post... cos it is not about food but pomeloes!

After our light lunch, I took a drive with my friend, turning right at a traffic light to Ampang new village, this time exploring it on my own.  I was shown once by my foodie friends recently and I am glad that I could find my way to where the pomelo plantations are.  Actually it was quite easy... there are two ways to go in, one from Ampang N/V and another way from Tambun, the road just next to the police station.

For the first time in history, I made a stop at this Go Chin Pomelo Nature Park where the pomeloes are planted.
Giant Pomeloes on the wall.....

See what I mean?
Beside the signboard, the shop displaying the fruits..... 
But unfortunately this is not the pomelo season yet....
Thus the fruits are a bit expensive now.... 
We asked for permission to go into the nature park... 
The staff gladly approved and showed us the way in...
For plant lovers, this is the place to linger awhile longer.....
As for me, I just took a few pictures on the left....
And on my right.... fruits were still bearing... 
This is a pomelo tree...
Indeed it is not the season as yet....
There are some in the process of ripening, I guess.... 
Hang-me-down.....
One to show that I touched the pomeloes for the first time... 
Before we left, we bought something...
Not pomeloes but Peanuts!! 
No kidding.... 
.
GOCHIN In Tambun, we will see you again next time!!

  6. No venture into food but instead fruits. I like pameloes with sweet sour taste & flesh is reddish in colour than the transparent white colour flesh. Nice outing.

  9. This post brings me memories when I made my first trip to see pomelo trees when I was a small kid. I enjoyed running all over the farm and got lost.
    These days visitors to KL often brought me pomeloes!! I feel so blessed.

  10. I had a tree in our garden during my growing up years. Don't think I've seen any these days - everyone's house compounds now are too small to grow much stuff.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
