Cherry Season Is Here At Galt

BEEN WAITING FOR THE CHERRIES SEASON.... And finally it arrives!   Ever since we came two months ago, we have been waiting patiently for a friend to call us saying "It's time!!"  Yes, cherries season is on and they are selling at $3 per pound in the markets.  So far we have bought two times and they were finished in no time.  Not a single one of us dislike eating them... LOL...

So when this friend called up to say that the cherries are ready to be plucked, we did not hesitate a day longer.  This morning after our breakfast, we drove a half hour drive to this couple's house cum orchard to start our "cherry picking" and of course, eating them as we did our job!  Just cannot resist...so addictive.  I think I ate one whole pound of cherries today... one by one, I popped into my mouth until I was really-really full.  Greedy Me!
And here we are..... all excited....
Before I start... let me do some "warm-up!"  LOL...
Ok, let's open ceremony here..... 
Ready... get set....GO!
Beautiful red cherries....
And soon.... our Harvest done!
When can I feel these again???
Time to relax and play with my new furry friend...
Having a nice breezy rest after a hard day's work...
LOL...
And my usual poses as we walked around the orchard...
We filled up two big bags from just one and a half trees...
Yes, we just could not finish plucking even from two trees..
Too many and there are a dozen of them there!
Our Treasure... it is nearly 10kgs!

Thanks to our friends' kindness and generosity...
 oh yeah, plus the wonderful tea snacks too!

  1. Some health benefits, I hear. Very expensive here - thankfully, I'm not a fan.

  2. It looks so beautiful there, and the cherries look perfect! So did the furry friend get a cherry?

  3. I love to eat cherries! You are so blessed with friends who are so kind and generous. Pluck and eat? No need to wash right? because directly off the tree is ok is it? I have seen documentaries where they pluck apples directly off the trees and eat them immediately without washing.

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…
