Indonesian have Tong Yuen too

We passed by many es drinks in the hot afternoon (es as in ice) but told ourselves that we will be back for them when we had an emptier stomach. Come night, and sadly all the es es stalls were closed. All was left was this Ronde stall.

I was skeptical in trying at first... but what the hell, we were short of one more meal to finish our '5 course' dinner for the night.

We ordered a bowl to share, sat on the cement road divider, and listen to the musicians playing for the folks at the Lesehan. ..I think we sat too long because 2 of them started playing in front of us. It was odd. Our own entertainment? Funny, annoying, but well, we were foreigners after all.

The Ronde was actually not bad. The ginger soup was really fragrant with the smell of ginger and the soup was spicy enough to just slightly burn the tongue, but not give a sore throat. The glutinous rice ball, 2 huge one, sunk in the middle. Was quite delicious. The sea coconut ..the pink stuff was a little too soft. Have no idea why bread squares were added in there.

Overall nice, and definitely more interesting that the yearly Tong Yuen I eat in KL.

I miss Gunung Rajah

Our customary Jump Shot! A must at the peaks. Gunung Rajah's peak was nice. We could see Genting Highlands from there and I am also guessing one distant mountain (which still looked tall) was Gunung Tahan.

I broke 1 out of 12 eggs. Acceptable ma right? I mean the egg was at the corner. It was no protection like the other eggs on the inside. And it was a long 10 hours climb up... ok la.

Breakfast was ... well ... weird. This is my first time cooking canned beans with mini "pak choy". The eggs, usual. But "pak choy"? I guess there's a first time for everything.

We over did lunch. We weren't hungry ... or at least I wasn't. I ate for the sake of eating and to also take the below picture.

Imagine *Sausage, eggs and luncheon meat burger at the waterfalls* .... fantastic!

What was more fun was to watch the guys jump down about 6 to 7 meters into the waterfall pool. Awesome! ...I tau tau berenang la.. Didn't dare to jump. Had a stupid problem with my toes as well. Kept on cramping when I stay in the cold water too long =(

I miss Gunung Rajah.

Nothing can go wrong with instant noodles

Honestly, nothing can go wrong if you go with instant noodles.

Some climbers I know thinks that instant noodles is sad though. Climb so susah-susah (difficult) to enjoy instant noodles? All I can say is that I rather have instant noodles than rice... carrying up mini bags of rice kills!

I was the cook on the first night when a couple of us hit Gunung Rajah. Maggie Mee TomYam. Honestly, nothing can go wrong with the "perencah" (seasoning) that came with the pack.

Squid balls, white Swiss mushrooms and mini "pak choy" with our noodles. DELICIOUS! Honestly, this is the first time eating such luxury Maggie Mee TomYam.

Yay hey! Passed the test! HAHAHAHA!

That night was wet... it was raining and our tent got flooded! I was practically trying to sleep over a puddle of water. Not fun, not fun at all.
