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.

  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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

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...
