In April, I went to Cameron Highlands with Simon, Sebas and Ivy! It was a short 3 days 2 nights trip and it was our very first trip together.

Simon and I used to like Cameron Highlands, we were there a few years ago when we couldnt afford to go anywhere except for Malaysia. We were amazed with the weather, the fresh organic vegetables and the fresh crisp air. But this was what it feels like a few years back. Cameron highlands now is alot different. Probably much more commercialized now which explains the constructions and pollution. Well the food is still good though. Anything strawberry or vegetables related is heaven and the steamboat is the best.

Nevertheless it was still a fun trip even though the bus journey took a lot longer than the usual. Because.it.was.Public.holiday – good friday.

So this was quite a last minute trip.. the 4 of us were supposed to go taiwan in October but your girl here tendered, found a New job and hence screw up the plan. We were lucky enough to get tickets. Very lucky indeed because it was the exact last 4tickets for the round trip.

We had to go with 2 different bus operators though, Un Express & Travel and Konsortium. Altogether the round trip tickets are about close to $100 per pax.

So as I mentioned, it was a really long trip. Usually the trip would take about 10hours.. but because it was the public holidays, it took us about 15hours to reach our hotel. The jam was super crazy. The bus just didn’t move at all, it didn’t move for 3 freaking hours!! Lesson learnt, never take bus to Malaysia again during public holidays.

And here this is where the summary starts.

Day 1. Checked into our hotel at Cameron Highlands Resort Hotel at Tanah Rata.

There are so many pine trees around this hotel. Do you know your girl here loves pine trees? We even engraved pine tree onto our wedding band. 😀 4

Lunch was at Restoran Ferm Nyonya. Steamboat is a must have here in Cameron Highlands. The soup base is damn sick. So so so so good.
