Yesterday, we went to uncle Hock Koon’s mom’s place to pluck jambu.
Jambu has a long name called "Syzgium Samarangense". In short for English, it is also called “Rose Apple”.

Wow, did not know it is so good. I love jambu since from young. It is easy to eat. Very juicy too.
This year, thanks to the extra-ordinary dry season we had 1-2 months ago, the jambu tree bear a lot of fruits. The most ever produced.
So, we brought the kids there to pluck it.
When it is red, then, you can pluck it!
And we used scissors to cut it.
See… my jambu.
Kay Kay also having fun cutting the jambu.
The whole trees full of jambu.
Let’s bring it to the next level. Jay, climb up the ladder!
That’s right. Cut it down, one by one. Mommy is beside you to catch you if you fall. hahaha
Kay Kay… your turn!
Within Minutes we plucked a basketful.
There are too many jambu, so, we also asked some little helper to come and pluck. Lukas & Louis came at a later time to pluck.
Uncle Hock Koon busy cutting the jambu.
The jambu is very juicy just like grapes, and has tannin taste. So, wine it is to go with it. Wahahaha
Hwee Tong is happy to see the wine. And I am waiting for mine too. HaHaHa
These jambu must taste together with this Sambal Rojak.
It is from PENANG! Cheong Kim Chuan!
I bought this from Penang Kitchen.
Penang Kitchen: 5 Coronation Rd, Singapore 269406.
OK. It’s time to pluck more.
So, that is how the kids learn how to climb ladder, and pluck real fruits from real tree. It is indeed hard work.
