More Than Missing Pineapples

A tourist could be forgiven in thinking that Pineapple Hill or Bukit Nanas still bears this fruit that is known predominantly for its rich nutrients of manganese and Vitamin C. Historical records state that the pineapple (or ‘nanas’ in Bahasa Malaysia) were grown around the hill in the 1870s. At that time, a Rajah Asal lived on the hill, and the fruit was grown to defend his home against invaders during the Klang War. If I was an invader, I probably spend time harvesting the fruits and selling them at some local market. Nevertheless, there was not a trace of ‘nanas’ on the hill. But that is not the only thing that is missing! I will explain this as you read along.
