Rambutan Picking

Tok Teh's rambutan trees

I was in Terengganu for the last two weeks for Eid holidays.

Kuala Terengganu is my parent’s hometown.

On the second day of Eid we visited Tok Teh.

Tok Teh is my grand aunty.

I called my grand uncle Tok Teh too.

It is very sad that he had passed away.

There were a lot of red, ripe rambutans on the rambutan trees at Tok Teh’s house.

So, a few days later we visited Tok Teh’s house again for a rambutan picking.

Kafah and I with our rambutans

Rambutan is a type of a fruit with hair on its skin.

Ripe, red rambutans

‘Rambut’ is hair in Malay language.

My big sister Kaman used a pole (galah) to pluck the rambutans.

My other sisters and I ran to collect to rambutans.

It was like a ‘rambutan rain’ 🙂

Kashah, Kafah and I rushed to collect the rambutans.

It was really fun.

This is the first time I went rambutan picking.

We sorted our rambutans and counted them. I collected 88 rambutans; more than my sisters did.

It was as fun as apple picking.

Later we ate the fruits.

They were very, very sweet.
