“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – J. R.R Tolkien
It was scorching in Penang, the only place that is cool is my bedroom with our ever loyal air conditioner that has served us over the decade. Spending most of my time in the room rather than catching up with the elderly. It has been awhile since I have not sweat much in KL. I had a sudden whim, lets go Cameron Highlands! We invited both our parents to join us for this short trip (2D1N). They were very delighted. We chose a better hotel to stay since we want our parents to revel in luxury (at least for 2 days). We went off 4 days later after KT’s grandma’s birthday celebration. Here is the spontaneous trip to Cameron Highlands.
My memory with Cameron Highlands is always a long and weary journey. It is one of the few places where strawberries can grow in Malaysia because of the cool weather compared to usual and relatively hot climate in other parts of Malaysia. Greens grow well in this vegetable kingdom. Corns are exceptionally sweet, juicy, and can be eaten raw too!
Arriving in late evening, we checked in, and thinking what do to. We decided to walk up a slop 200-300m away from our hotel to a Strawberry Park. The fresh air is indescribable. The workers were cleaning the farm. Looks like they are closing soon. We got ourself the last 6 packs of strawberries from them. It was the tastiest strawberry I have ever eaten from Cameron Highlands to-date. We actually came back the next day to buy more of their strawberries, but it does not taste as good as the first one.
I will let the pictures talk the rest. 🙂
The pictures pretty much summed up my Cameron Highlands Trip. It is definitely enjoyable when we have our families around us.
