While escaping the humid weather in Singapore or other parts of Malaysia to the highlands for a cooling temperature such as Genting or Cameron, no visit to Cameron Highlands is complete without going to any Tea Plantations for either its scenery, fresh cuppa tea and cakes. Or to find your inspirations maybe? It’s my first […]
There are a lot of farms in Cameron Highlands. From bee to butterfly to lavender to strawberry and vegetable farms, watercress valley, rose and tea centre. Now let me bring you to another location we went to on our 2nd day in Cameron Highlands. There is certainly a faint smell of lavender the moment we […]
If you are driving from Singapore or Johor, do drop by to Restoran Kari Kambing 40 Hari for lunch and it shall keep your families tummy fueled up for another few hours, making lesser stops along the way.
What’s Cameron Highlands without visiting one of their strawberry farms where you can pick fresh strawberries and have it topped with a chocolate and cream or made it into fresh jams or even strawberry shake or float?

The picturesque sea view shows a bird eye view of 3 Islands, Bodgaya Island (the biggest Island in the Tun Sakaran Marine Park), Bohey Dulang and Tetagan Island. From where I was standing, to my right, I could see the opening to Celebes Sea.
The short hike and surprising encounter I had earlier on was worth it. You can see the different wonderful blue shades of the ocean and be mesmerized by it. A great thing to do here was definitely stretching your arms wide open, with your head hung back and breathe in deep to the fresh air of the Sea, and of course, with the most satisfying feeling ever.
