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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
