New KEA Garden At Cameron Highlands

KEA FARM IS JUST SOME WALKING DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE COPTHORNE HOTEL... the last time I came was three years back and there was only the Kea Farm, no Kea Garden yet.  I remember there are two rows of stalls selling fruits, vegetables and souvenirs only.... but now KEA Garden is the latest addition and I could see they are still renovating.  Expanding is more like it..... The next time I come, I am sure there will be something new to explore again....
 Along the KEA Farm, this is the latest addition...
KEA Garden... and I wonder what they had in store then....
 There is an entrance in and a different exit when coming out.... no turning back... 
Meet up with different types of vegetables grown in Cameron Highlands...
I can rest my legs as we walked along... 
 There is a stairway leading to the basement...
Upon entering, colourful flowers welcome the guests.... 
It is free... I mean the entrance is free of charge....
Taking pictures with the flowers are also free...  :)
So this auntie takes opportunity to pose here and there... 
But don't ask me what the names are.... I am "lost"
I guess they are for sale too.... 
Souvenir stalls are available at the lower ground...
Can these last in Ipoh?  I wonder....
 nahhh... this auntie is tired liow....
There is a small cafe to cater us.....
We had a cooling rest here...
Can admire the beautiful scenery behind us while sipping the Cameron Tea....
On the way out, we bought some greens before proceeding back to our hotel to check out.... 
 Bye Camerons... till we meet again...
perhaps in another couple of years!

  1. Nice photos of you with the flowers! I can't remember whether or not I have been to KEA farm. The farm should be around in 2007.

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…
