Cameron Highlands Trip

This is my first trip to Cameron Highlands.

The journey started early in a Sunday morning, went through the winding roads and finally reached Cameron Highlands at noon.

First stop, ‘BOH’ Tea Centre at Sungai Palas.

BOH Tea Centre

There were 9 of us all-together. 3 of us (including me) are photographers.

Group having tea

It’s good to hang out with not only photographers, but also photographer-friendly people because they just know when and how to pose.

“I’m going to pour this milk, want to take picture or not?” How Siang asked.

Then 3 of us started to shoot pictures of him pouring the milk.

High tea

At ‘BOH’ Tea Centre we ordered, what else, ‘BOH’ tea and some cakes and cookies.

They call it the Cameronian Gold Bland tea and it costs RM3.30 per pax.

Not bad I would say especially when you are having it at that place.

Then we went for the tea processing factory tour. Nothing much to see.

Previously, I didn’t know Cameron Highlands is such a big place with 3 major townships — Ringlet, Brinchang and Tanah Rata.

Driving from one end to another takes around 10-20 minutes.

Towns

At night, we went for dinner at a steamboat restaurant at Brinchang.

It seems like a norm to have steamboat for dinner at Cameron Highlands because there were so many steamboat restaurants there.

Having a steamy hot steamboat at a freezing cold night is sure a very enjoyable thing.

After dinner, we walked to the nearby pasar malam (night market).

It was so crowded!

Pasar Malam

The pasar malam at Cameron Highlands has nothing much different from the pasar malams else where.

Except you see people wearing jacket and sweater instead of singlet and mini pants.

Besides, most of the things are strawberry related. Strawberry soft toys, strawberry keychain, strawberry candies, strawberry umbrellas, strawberry ice-creams, strawberry pillows, you name it they got it.

Strawberry merchandises

The next morning, we visited the rose farm owned by our host’s father.

Next stop is the strawberry farm at Brinchang town.

Strawberry pot

We tried many strawberry related foods like strawberry muffin, strawberry milk shake, strawberry ice-cream, strawberry yogurt and strawberry puff.

How can you say you’ve been to Cameron Highlands without bringing back any strawberries? So I bought some strawberries too.

I bet you have had enough seeing the word strawberry. Well, I aslo had enough copy and pasting the word strawberry.

Don’t worry, this post is almost finish.

It was almost evening, so we stopped by another tea farm as our last stop.

They wanted to do some jump shots and so we did it.

Jump

It was a really fun and exciting 2-day trip. Although it was a bit tiring, but I felt refreshed and recharged.

While we were on the way going home, we were greeted by a beautiful sunset right after a rain.

And that marks the end of our journey.
