Cameron Highlands, 31st August 2008

Took my family to Cameron Highlands on our Independence Day for a little relaxation.

Started the journey at 8.30am from my house and managed to reach Cameron at 11.00am via the new Simpang Pulai highway. Took the new road on the advice of friends but I personally find that the old road from Tapah suit visitors from KL better in the sense that its nearer. One doesn't have to make such a big u-turn from Simpang Pulai just to reach the highlands...my goodness gracious!!

Must admit that Cameron has changed quite a bit since my last visit here 9 years ago...the farm set ups has improved, hygiene has improved, roads and infrastucture has improved but with improvisation comes the downside of commercialization...hais..

Staying & eating here during the holidays is no joke I tell you...

The price of veges and such has also increased like hell BUT it is still cheaper than what we get in KL...and fresher too...

To my surprise, I found out one is required to pay an entrance fee of a few RMs to some of the farms...its not like free entrance of days bygone.

In short, we bought lotsa corn, lotsa veges, strawberries and some "chung chou" ( good for soup making)...took lotsa pictures...had lunch at KEA farm Restaurant, Starbucks at Ringlet. We made our journey home via the old road ( Tapah way ) and reached home at 8.20pm after dinner at Sri Damansara.

All in all, it has been an enjoyable time for me and my family. I am seriously looking forward to our next family vacation at Chaingmai on the 13th September...till then and thanks for reading.
