A Trip Up The Highlands

I took one day leave to drive my siblings to Cameron Highlands. Hot weather in Ipoh during the day "pushed" us to the highlands, thinking that it would be cooler up the mountains.   Well, the weather may not be as cool as we expected it to be but then it was definitely not as "burning" as it is in Ipoh...
My BIL told us that he wouldn't mind spending a few days up here in Camerons... hmmmm....

Alright.... the places that we went to.....

Firstly I made a stop to the chocolate factory and we got down to answer some "nature call."
Didn't realize I was wearing one arm-band
till I saw this picture.... 
Driving ma.. so have to avoid the sun, right?
Second stop... Time Tunnel...
Since I went in before, I just waited outside for my siblings...
I just walked around to take some pictures outside... 
3rd destination... to the Golf Club Cameron Highlands...
I didn't know that there is one till my BIL exclaimed...
"STOP.. I wanna get down here... "
 at the entrance....
Went in to the Pro Golf Shop to get some souvenirs...

At the terrace....
Nice place to play golf... 
Then the drive went on....
To Brinchang where we stopped for our lunch...
Nice ambience...
but I forgot the name of the shop...too bad...
My BIL ordered a western set lunch...
whereas the three ladies ordered the Chinese set...
Chicken with ginger and spring onions...
and stir-fried sambal morning glory vegetables....
(in short - kangkong!)\
That was our humble lunch... 
Cos we wanted to save our stomach for TEA!

  1. Oh...so jealous to see that you can wear so little there :D But I know what you mean by the hot Ipoh weather. I'm happy to be back here where weather is concerned, especially at this time of the year. It has been perfect the past few days but then today, it's getting a little gloomy again....hmmm. Still very nice weather too, compared to the intense heat back home. Bet Camerons is very different these days. Hope to visit it again one day.

  18. Nice trip up the mountain. I love such countryside outings too, because can relax my mind (away from the busy city life), refresh my body and have some good food.

  19. Haven't been to Cameron for ages, but my Japanese friend who just got back last mth commented that it's super boring. Don't know if I should revisit as I heard there's nothing much to do there except for the cool weather....

  21. Thought after going thru Time Tunnel you either turned younger in your sweet 16 or appear some where in one of the Dynasty in China. No?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
