A day in Cameron Highlands

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.
IMG_3040 We laughed at the name… yeah, our director’s name!
IMG_3041IMG_3044IMG_3047 Nasi lemak… the sambal was too salty
IMG_3049 My wrong choice, milky drink which was not a good idea when you’re going to use winding road!

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…

IMG_3072IMG_3073IMG_3074The super delicious fried mushroom!
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.

IMG_3095IMG_3097 Hahaha yummy!
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!
IMG_3098IMG_3101IMG_3102IMG_3103IMG_3105imageIMG_3106 Amazingly, there was a school there!
IMG_3107IMG_3108IMG_3109IMG_3110IMG_3111IMG_3113IMG_3114IMG_3115IMG_3116IMG_3117IMG_3128IMG_3133IMG_3134IMG_3138IMG_3139IMG_3142IMG_3143IMG_3144IMG_3146IMG_3148IMG_3150IMG_3151IMG_3158IMG_3161IMG_3167IMG_3171IMG_3175IMG_3179IMG_3180IMG_3196IMG_3210
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…

  5. ::: very nice pictures you got there bro.. love it, and its very beautiful. a little jealousy here, i would love to have a trip like you guys did. tak kisah ler kat mana2.. as long as i can calm down my stress level at this moment.. ive been to cameron highland a couple time before but not since the highland has developed so well like nowadays. nak pi kat 'BOH hanging restaurant' tuh! mcm best jer nampak..

    ::: german played very well [awesome actually] as always but unfortunately 'mueller' got a yellow card during germany vs argentina becoz obviously he is one of a good striker for the german. no wonder he was named as a golden boot player for fifa 2010. if mueller was there during the german vs spain match, probably the german will be in a final with belanda. but anyway, spain was superb too, and ofcourse bola itu bulat.. anything can happen. ;)

  33. Wow! So many photos I got dizzy scrolling all the way down! Can you make it into a two or three parter next time u hv so many photos? : )

    ReplyDelete
  34. So did u get pukey after drinking that milk? Yeah, not advisable to drink that if you go up Cameron's winding road. Genting is fine cos the road is less winding.

  35. Wow! lots of nice food eh? I want to eat them too : )
