It's been a while since my little family took me out on a trip. And since mama and papa have been to Cameron Highlands for a couple of times, they thought it would be a great idea to take me out to my first ever trip to Cameron Highlands last week, in order to get me closer to nature and get away from the busy city life.
It was so much fun because I got to visit so many places and learn so many new things! I was so happy, I kept laughing and smiling all the way!
One of the places that I can never forget was the "BOH" Tea Centre.
Oh the trouble that we had to go through just to get to that place! You see, to get to that place, we had to drive on a very, veryyy steep and narrow road that only allows one car to pass through each time.
See how small the road is? It was even challenging since we were in a big Alphard so you can imagine how our hearts thump each time we see a car coming towards us! Lucky for us, papa is such a good driver! So we passed each car smoothly without any trouble, alhamdulillah.
Nevertheless, all the obstacles and troubles that we went through were all worth it once we set our eyes on one of the most magnificent views ever. It is the beautiful "BOH" Tea Centre!
It is located at the peak of the hill and the place is surrounded with beautiful tea plantation scenery that totally took my breath away! I have never seen anything so beautiful, it made me wiggle with joy!
And from up here too, you can see the panoramic view of the tea plantation while enjoying a cup of hot tea and slices of cakes!
And since I am a big boy now, mama thought I could get a little taste of the famous BOH tea! I am not sure if it was the cool breeze up there or it was my thirst for water at that time, but the tea I tasted on that day was really, really yummy!
Before we left that beautiful place, mama grabbed a few boxes of flavored teas and I posed for the camera as a handsome Orang Utan! :D
The next day, we went to the Strawberry Farm. Did you know that strawberries are rich with Vitamin C? I didn't -- until mama told me that on that day. I learnt that strawberries are not only lovely, they are also able to prevent cancer!
My Mak Long who is a doctor didn't recommend mama to feed me with a lot of strawberries though. Because strawberries are citrus fruits and citrus fruits are quite acidic, so she suggested mama to go easy with the strawberries before my tummy gets upset. What a bummer -- because I liked it! Especially the chocolate dipped ones! Yum!
Mama went crazy with strawberries and bought everything-strawberries, from a whole load of fresh strawberries through to the strawberry jam, strawberry juice, strawberry fridge magnet, and strawberry stroller pads! Here are some!
Then, we also went to the Bee Farm! I saw a huge swarm of bees securely locked up in a huge box with a transparent screen. I think the bees can be harmful because the box says "Yes, can see! But do not touch the box and bee!"
But I was feeling adventurous and wanted to touch the bees because they were so fascinating but mama stopped me before I even got the chance to lay a finger on the screen. Sighs. No fun lah you, mama.
Can you see the honey comb at the top there? Did you know that we can actually eat the honey as well as the comb? It's true! Atok and Pak Lang told us about that fact when we there there on that day. See, I told you I learnt a lot during this trip! ;)
Before we went back, again we dropped by another tea plantation for another round of snack. This time, we went to Bharat tea plantation. It also has a great view and equally nice teas :)
One of mama's friends told us not to leave Cameron without tasting the scones which seem to be one of Cameron's famous delicacies, so we ordered some and I instantly fell in love with it!
Before we left Bharat tea plantation, mama went down to personally feel and touch the tea leaves. I could not join because it was already drizzling then, so I stayed with Atok and Opah upstairs while mama and papa did some Hindustani poses in the tea field!
Papa promised to bring me here again because we did not get the chance to visit many more places like the Cactus Farm, the Butterfly Park, the Flower Farm, and a whole lot more to explore due to the rainy weather while we were there. But one thing for sure, I definitely enjoyed my stay there and I can't wait for more trips like this in the future!
Oh and if you haven't already visited Cameron, you really should! Until then, hugs and kisses from me and mama! ;)
