On 7th of July, it was public holiday in Penang. We decided to go to Cameron Highlands after a simple discussion after volley ball on 6th. Yes, it was a last minute plan.
I slept at 1am on 7th and woke up at 2.30am watching World Cup -- Holland vs Uruguay. A tough match I’d say. Right after the game at 5am, I ran to bed and caught some sleep and woke up again at 6.30am. Got ready and Keith fetched me around 7am. Reached at Zaidi’s house (Jelutong) around 7.15am and we moved with Zaidi’s car to Zaki’s house at Seberang Jaya.
We drove straight to Simpang Pulai to meet Linda there as she drove from Ipoh (she was on leave for a week to take care of her sister who just delivered baby). All of us didn’t eat anything for breakfast yet and decided to eat somewhere around there to save time.
After we finished eating, we drove straight to Cameron Highlands while enjoying the scenery. So, warning to you if you going to drive through the winding roads, please, please, please do not drink any milky drinks!
Around 1 hour drive, we reached there. We went straight to the groceries place to look what could we buy…
After we did some groceries shopping, we decided to eat some strawberry ice cream :) So, we found a shop which was not far away from the groceries place.
After the ice cream session, Linda wanted us to see the tea farm view which I never been before. I went to Bharat Tea farm a few times but not Boh Tea Farm. The road to the farm was pretty far and the road was narrow. Only one car can go through at one time and at each corner you must use honk for your safety. Warning: The road is winding!
Oh, when we were at Boh Tea Farm it was raining. Then, the rain got heavy and no more pictures taken. We went again to the groceries shopping place and bought more stuff before going back.
On the way back, we saw a waterfall just beside the road. Hehehehe… so I decided to snap a picture there! Hey, it was freezing!!!
We continued our journey home right after that. It was such a great experience spending a day at Cameron Highlands. I went there a few times but never spend only a day there. After all, nothing much you can do there but seriously it can kill the stress even for one day :)
Thank you Lim Guan Eng for the public holiday…
