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.

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
