Family Outing To Raub, Pahang

We are going to Raub, Pahang today to visit mom's cousin brother and cousin sister who have a fruits orchard in Raub. Sis SMS me the night before that they will be waiting for us at the Gombak Toll at 9 am. OMG.... so early ah, I am so scared that I can't wake up cos still blur from drinking with my ci mui. Set two alarm clocks in the morning and woke up at 8 am. Dearie Suki and the kids still sleeping soundly. I quietly sneak out from the room and prepare a quick breakfast - bread spread with butter and kaya and ham for them to tag along in the car.

Almost 8.30 am and its time wake them up. Poor Le-Ann and Ee-Thern changed clothes for them and their eyes still closed. Finally they are awaked and both of them got so excited cos we are going 'Kai Kai' today. Both making so much noises at the car porch while waiting for Daddy to fix the child car seat. Again they saw some big aeroplane in the sky and those must be for the Merdeka Parade.

Started our journey at about 9.30 am and met up with sis at the toll. Reached Raub at about 11.30 am and we visited mom's cousin brother house first. Wah, so much durian and we have durian and banana for breakfast. Both mom's cousins have a fruit orchard in Raub, and they are in the agriculture fields. We had our lunch at mom's cousin sis house. After lunch the kids playing around in the house compound and riding the bicycles under the hot sun.

We adults start to enjoy the durian and look around the plants that they planted in every corner of the house. Life is quite relaxing in a small town like this. No pressure, no stress, no traffic jam, no entertainment, and it is surrounded by orchards. But I don't think so I can survive here. It is just too boring for me. Dearie Suki was telling me, maybe when we retire we can get a piece of land here and stay here for the rest of our life. Ohhh, I tell him no THANK YOU!

Mom's cousins gave us so much fruits. Luckily today we are driving Dearie Suki 4WD if not I don't think so all of it can fit into my sis car. Dearie Suki call is full with fruits. We have durian, cempedak, bananas, dragon fruits, sugar cane, guavas, chilli padi, rambutan, pulasan, manggis, some green vegetables.Wow.... so much of it in Dearie Suki car.

We left Raub at about 4.30pm and while driving half way, Dad called my hp and said we will stop by for tea time in Bentong. Huh... we just had lunch and going to makan again. We have some noodles and sang yue fillets at the restaurant called Yee Fatt. This is my 4th time there and we eat there quite frequently whenever we go to Genting Highlands. Dad ordered, 'Ginger & Spring Onion Sang Yue Fillets', Steamed Sang Yue Fillets With Mee Hoon' and 'Wat Tan Hor'. Total came out is about RM54 for 5 adults and 2 kids. ( Le-Ann & Ee-Thern slept in the car ).

We reached mom's house at almost 6 pm and allocate the fruits. Reach home at about 7 pm and take bath for the kids and didn't have dinner that night cos still full. Both Le-Ann & Ee-Thern was pestering Dearie Suki that they want to go 'Kai Kai' again. Since we got no where to go at night, I suggested to Dearie Suki let's go to Putrajaya to see the fireworks and it is only 15 minutes drives from our house. After 3 hours of sleep in the car, the kids are so energetic and got so excited with the fireworks and we are planning to bring them again to see the fireworks today.

It is a tiring trip but we enjoyed it so much !

Sue,
You are so lucky... Looking at your picture, I really missed my family and all the gathering, jalan2 & makan2.

Creamy and bitter durian - that's my favourite.

Wah, I have no energy to go blog hopping for 2 days and suddenly so many posts.

So much fruits that I have not been able to eat for such a long time. :(

Yesterday, I bought 10 manggis (so small) for my kids at the Malaysian Carnival for £5.

Ooohh... you didn't go to Ratha restaurant for the famous fish head curry and chicken curry. Gosh, there are Singaporeans who drive all the way to Raub just for the curry at that restaurant. You should try it out the next time you visit Raub. I'm from Raub and I will be going home for a visit this year.
