While visiting Ipoh, most people bring back Pamelo. It is a big fruit in the citrus family. It is almost like a XL size of grapefruit but in green colour. Chinese people use them for praying during chinese new year, mooncake festival, and etc. Of course the pamelo will be eaten after the praying. It is difficult to get a sweet one. You should ask the seller to choose the best one for you.
