Ginger and Tambunan; Switzerland of the East

Ginger and Tambunan; Switzerland of the East

About 750 metres above sea level, 
Tambunan is part of the Crocker Range 
where we passed the gravity hill
along the way.

Bamboo fencing welcomes us,
and bade us goodbye, too.
The dense forests of bamboo
a result of a British colonial edict
'20 bamboo sprouts to be planted
for every bamboo cut'!

The Huge Ginger sculpture
reminds me of my household increased usage;
ginger for every pot of rice,
ginger for every kettle of boiling water!

Because it tastes better?
Or an anti- Covid dietary item?
