Picking Broad Beans Or Kacang Parang, Cameron Highlands.

By the time we finished our lunch at Tringkap Restaurant, it was about 1.30 pm. Our friend suggested making one more stop at the Last Stop. If I am not mistaken, this is called the Last Stop, Cameron Highlands. We were glad we stopped here because we get to hand picked some broad beans or kacang parang in Malay. It was selling at MYR 10 per kilo.
We were each given a plastic bag and a pair of scissors to pick the beans.
It was fun and we get to choose the beans we wanted. 
After we have picked the broad beans or kacang parang, we came upon these fruits called Cameron Apples, selling at MYR 8 per kilo. I regretted not buying some to taste because I have not tasted these fruits before.
There were also lots of passion fruits hanging overhead.
 Big Hydrangea cluster 
 Pale Blue Hydrangea. 
 Customers can also pick their own strawberries.
 Vegetable seedlings.
These were the broad beans I picked and bought.
 Bought a bundle of Dragon Beard veggie for MYR 2.
(Loong soh choy in Cantonese)
We stopped at a friend's wholesaler place to buy these.
Squash or pumpking? Selling at MYR 8 (if I remember correctly)
I also bought these 4 sweet corns selling at MYR 3.50 per piece.
I removed the outer covering and I steamed them for our lunch.
And I cooked the broad beans with some ladies fingers (okra) harvested from my own garden. I used dried shimps, some prawn paste, some bird's eye chilies and garlic.
 By the time we were ready to leave for the lowland, it was about 2.20 pm. By then the sky had turn dark.
 After a short distance, it started to pour and it was raining heavily for most part of the journey. The rain only stopped just before we reach Simpang Pulai.
 Thank God for clear vision in spite of the heavy rain and safe journey all the way home.
My constant boast is God. I can never thank you enough!

  7. I have never seen beans like this, just hanging! Fascinating. Oh, we had to drive through thick fog on Sunday night. It scares me, you cannot see in front of you.

    1. I can imagine all those plants in Louis Dean's garden. Very rewarding to harvest our own produce. I too have okra, cherry tomatoes and pepper in my garden. Have a great day!

    1. The sky is very unpredictable. It can suddenly change from a clear blue sky to dark sky, followed by heavy downpour.

  15. Oo so fun to pick your own beans! I call those 'runner beans' though.

    As for those 'Cameron apples', I tried them many years ago and they were tasteless. Hope to lessen your regret at not trying them haha.

    1. Thank you, Stacy. I don't know the name of the beans. They are broad so I just refer to them as broad beans. Lol! Oh I thought the Cameron apples is something new. Ha ha you have lessen my regret but I would want to try to satisfy my curiosity. Have a great day!

  16. Broad beans here look nothing like that and the ones we grow in our garden we only use the beans! The pods are cooked only if they are very young.
    The ones in your picture look more like what we call Runner bean, also known as flat beans, helda beans and romano beans.
    Love passion fruit but it does not grow well here. Take care Diane

    1. Thank you, Diane. I didn't know the name of the beans, just refer to them since they are broad. Now I know they are Runner beans. We picked the tender ones. Passion fruit plants grow well even in the lowland.
