Know how to pick a good one? No worries, just ask the young Chinese girls waiting to serve you at the Pomelo stalls in Gopeng Road near the Sam Poh Tong caves. I'm sure they'll convince you to buy a few.

That's why I always travel to Tambun town to buy pomeloes. The price is okay and they are fresh!

Hi Susan,


I thought I shared this with you. When I first went to England for further studies, I could not find any Pomeloes in London. So I substituted my cravings for Pomeloes with Grapefruit ! Wow ! what a different. Westerners would add sugar to the Grapefruit. I prefer not to. Still to this day, I miss our Tambun Loke Yau. : )

Hi ACS77,
I agree that the pomeloes we get in the US pale in comparison to Tambun's 'Loke Yau'. Even though the fruits look identical, the US variety is sourish while Tambun's home-grown pride and joy is sweet and succulent. Too bad Malaysia does not export 'Loke Yau' to the US.

Susan, instead of buying pomeloes in Tambun town, you should go to Ampang N/V where the road leads to Tambun. Here the pomelo stalls are just outside their orchards and you get a better price. Fresh from the tree.

Hi Joe, I am not very familiar with that part of the town; maybe you can give some landmarks, let's say start from the beginning of Jalan Tambun. Thanks.

Don't drive to Ipoh but take a tour bus instead! Reason: China dolls wearing only Bikini sell pomeloes in tour buses. Is it true????

It must be me Kayes but when I look at these pomeloes I feel a little dizzy, as though I'm at the edge of a cliff, about to topple off! I haven't had that much to drink, so we can't blame the wine! It must be the angle of the shot. It is like the feeling you get when looking out of a window, high up, on to the street below. What do you think?

Blue Grass, are you saying that a picture and/or pomeloes can induce vertigo? I happen to get vertigo attacks now and then and I always have those Stugeron pills at hand.

Hi Ken,


Maybe we should start a business importing "Tambun Loke Yau". : ) Kayes and his connections will be a great help : )

Hi Kayes, Ken and ACS77. Let us know if the importing "Tambun Loke Yau" biz takes root. We have a friend who has a pomelo farm so you might consider roping him in too Wink Guess might turn out to be big biz too and the sleepy hollow, Tambun will enter the global tourist map Wink Let's advertise it as "self plucking" pomelo farm on the tourist map! Smile! Everybody likes to do the self plucking thing these days. When in Cameron Highlands, you see "Self plucking strawberry farms" everywhere

My friend recommended this stall but it wasn't open yet. Actually I wasn't quite sure whether my friend said, Tai Kar Fatt or Yat Chai Fatt.

These stalls sell a variety of things besides pomeloes. You can find assorted kacang and tidbits sold here. Maybe someone should name a stall called "Nuts and Butts".

Joe, you really have a way with words! With a name like that, and even more so if the shop is run by a bevy of lovely China Dolls, guys with testosterone levels hitting the roof will flock there by the droves. Just like the nutmeg girls of Taipeh, the massage girls of Patpong Road in Bangkok, and the fishball girls (Yue Dann Mooi) of Hong Kong, Ipoh's claim to fame will be the pomelo girls, whose precursor were the "Leong Char Mooi" of the 60's and 70's.

After buying the pomeloes, Ethan wanted to go to one of the cave temples nearby to see dinosaur fossils. We saw these monkeys instead.
