Pun of the day:
I’m not sure if you’ve herb of these obs-cure natural medicines! I’m rooting for them!
If the only orchard you have ever been to is some happening street in Singapore, you need to read this entry.
Mom avocado advocates organic fruits and vegetables. She believes in the saying “you are what you eat”.
It’s true. Thanx to her job, i get to eat the freshest fruits and veggies, all organic. And i feel great.
We plant veggies in our own little front and back yards.
Freaking giant okra (lady’s finger).
Stop looking at my lady’s fingernails. Look at how big the okra is.
We even have okras with red nail polish! Have you seen them before?
Mom works at the orchards sometimes. It is such a shame that the last time i visited one of them was probably 10 years ago.
Ahh… a breath of fresh air!
It was a real eye-opener.
The orchard has some of the best durians ever. It’s good that no pesticides were ever used for the plants.
Some durians are given very funny names, like this one.
It’s called the Big Sweet Potato.
The tree is so short!
This is the famous D24.
And this is the elongated durian.
No la, i’m kidding. It is a Jackfruit.
These here are the sweetest starfruits ever.
They’re called Honey Stars. 😀 Ya ya, just like the breakfast cereal. Such a sweet name, literally!
This is a kind of mango known as Apple Mango.
The ants know that it’s good stuff too.
Ah, I advocado advocate replacing butter with avocado. Damn good for your skin. I adore avocado.
Guess what this is?
This is a Dragon Fruit plant. It is part of the cactus family. Amazing isn’t it? Unfortunately there were no fruits yet.
Ah, it’s great to be a part of nature at its purest and most breathtaking.
I started to feel like Alice in the Wonderland Cheesie in the real Cheeserland.
When i walked deeper into the orchard, i momentarily thought i was in Hokkaido.
I saw a lavender sea!
It’s called the “Hong Tian Wu”. (红田乌).
Well, the orchard does not only have fruits. It has some rare herbs that people do not know of, and they cure/prevent all sorts of ailments.
Mom told me that Hong Tian Wu is a miraculous medicine for diabetes and high blood pressure. My aunty who is diabetic has been drinking boiled Hong Tian Wu tea, and she found that her blood sugar level decreased significantly. And it’s a very very cheap remedy, not to mention natural too.
This is Hibiscus Syriacus. (木槿花)
It is not just some pretty flower hor. It has some medicinal usage. Plus, it is a magical flower. In the morning, it is white in color. It changes color with time. It was pink when i saw it at 12 noon.
Later at 4pm in the afternoon, it looked like this.
Then there’s the “White Crane Linzhi” (白鹤灵芝)
Scientific name: Rhinacanthus nasutus
Look! They look just like little birds, hence the beautiful name 🙂
This herb lowers blood pressure as effectively as the pharmaceutical drug.
This one is known as “Half Face Lotus”. (半边莲)
Scientific name is… Ah nevermind.
Each flower seems to have half of its petals missing. They are not just innocent little flowers. They are natural anti-cancer herbs.
These are called “Little Rice Balls”. (米碎花)
Just like the Half Face Lotus, the Little Rice Balls are good for people with cancer. They are also good for arthritis, rheumatism and skin problems.
“Cat’s whiskers” (猫须草), or Misai Kuching, as the Malays call it.
It’s a very common herb. It’s good for people with diabetes and kidney problems.
This is called the Pink Cheesie.
Very good for a disease called sanity. 😀
Stay cheesed for Season Eye Candy!
P/S: I made most of the translations up. You know, no point writing their scientific names, when MOST of you don’t read chinese 0_o. So don’t scold me if you can’t find them via Google hor.

Ahh..great post Princess, nice to see where some of the fruits that mama sells comes from 🙂
You used the DSLR to take the photos? Nicely taken if so dear!! But then, from how you use your T9… its pretty much obvious you can take decent photos not to mention you get the talent from mama Cheesie too because she’s a hell of photographer too even if she wouldn’t admit it ne? 😉 Btw, how far is this orchard from your place?
I can vouch for Cheesie saying the fruits are fresh since I had the opportunity to try some before 😀 She certainly is lucky to be able to eat them all the time!!!
Hehehe.. isn’t this the outfit you wore in the post-Seremban Bridal show? 😉
love the way you hold that Okra, my thingy steamed already looking at that. Look like you have experience in handling “Okra”, maybe you can come work for me.
And your short skirt, oh my god, my nose is breeding, look at that perky asss, love to do you from behind, oh man, I tak bole tahan !
You have perfect eyes dont you? And not just for taking pictures either! 🙂
Durian Paradise is Right! So many great pics.. so little space!
The Red Dragonfly is wonderful… reminded me of a Rainbow Dragonfly I saved a few weeks back. Poor thing was nearly gone. 🙁
Such gorgeous vistas and with you there it makes them more than captivating.
I think your “Pink Boots” look great! And… they have rompin’ Good tread and a bit of heel to boot! 🙂 But I would add that it reinforces my little statement –
“You are the Beauty and COLOR in this Black and White World.”
God Bless you Cheesie! +++
Peace, Light, and Love to You!
i love this pics..
Wow! Nice photos. Did you get a new camera?
Your finger nials not very chor teng (troublesome in cantonese) meh? More efficient when digging nose har?
So many picture 😐
So worth it 😐
Ya we all know cheesie-sama look very beautiful (T_T) in those picture but, that is cheesie-sama… that is not why we come to blog right? Come to read about interesting topic.
Thanks for sharing about China, Cheesie-sama. I really want to go there one day!
Bit of off topic but, in Singapore airport saw someone look LOT like cheesie-sama… was so strange almost run up to and say hello. But did not have crazy look in eye, so I knew was not her 😐
Are your fingernails fake or real one? The picture with you holding Malaysia flag didn’t show long fingernails one??
Been following your site for about 4 months now and I love to read it, other than the fact that you are a hot chick. Question tho… Who takes your pictures when you’re not cam whoring? Do you have a personal camera man following you around?
how’s the lake view in 九寨沟?
i heard that it has some of the best lake views in the world.
i wish i could go along to be your camera man. 🙂
i m sure u will come back with lots of great shots with that SLR.
oh yah.. dont catch cold. keep urself warm
u look like china doll 😉
yay.. at least you liked durians.
hmm couldn’t believe that you go to orchard with that outfit… seems like something not right…
Your durians look so nice!!! Can I have 1 full bag of it? Somehow I looking at you more than those okra, trees, durians, jackfruit and etc…
“This is called the Pink Cheesie.
Very good for a disease called sanity”
Also gives significant improvement on a common illness among middle-aged man called ED.
hey queen….do u think that ur skirt was too short?
enrico: …too short for an orchard outing? :0
cheesie: i like the way you held that okra/ladies finger. 😉 pun intended?
Wow.. that is 1 sexy pinky boot u got there. Since PCK is going to retire his yellow boots, is this a new comer?? ;-p
very much informative post..:) esp the 红田乌 herb plant. My parents are diabetic so I guess introducing them this would be a good thing because…the medicines they are on never always help in many ways. bahaha..*thumbs up*
Ha ha.Great pictures! Are you Chinese? Can we make friend?
wow it’s great……. i learned so much………there’s a herb named ‘hong tian wu’ ….. may i have a close pic please……………help me……
Charles: I posted two pictures of Hong tian wu above. Basically they are maroon plants, supposedly good for diabetes. 🙂
Hi there, I’m interested in this 红田乌草, could you let me know where can obyain the seed and it get it rooting .I’m from singapore, I guess you are from Malaysia as I have seen the Durians.Thanks a million.
Nice to know you have a collection of herbs list,
Just happen to come accros your website by chance, as I was looking for
” me chui Hua” – you call ” little rice bowl” , it is al very use for headache – take
a handful of young leave and pound, add a little salt ( for those without high-blood)
and add a little warm water and drink- relief is an hour time. Also take the root and dry it, and put into rive wine for at least 100 days – and drink a spoonful nightly – good for general health – I drink nightly.
Where are you from ?
I am in Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, East Malaysia.
Another good herbs is ‘Trichodesma zezlanicum Burm.F’ – boil with old hen and good to dispel ” wind and damp ” and is nice to eat – tell you mother about it , maybe she know.
Hie david, thank you very much for the info. 🙂 I’m from Seremban.
wow you have very nice long nails. how long have you been growing them? they look great on you. you have nice long hair too.
you look so beaty, honey..
I am Indonesian, also like an orchard, plant a fuit tress
wow! i just saw your nails at The Orchard. they are the most elegant and lovely ones ever! why don’t you keep them like that always?
