No trip to CH will be complete if it doesn't include a trip to the famous tea plantations. You can choose to go to the BOH plantation (there are two, one in Habu near Tanah Rata and the other more canggih one up in Sg. Palas highly recommended by many). Or u could go to the one with easy access that is the Bharat Tea plantation where you can view by the roadside, with it's tea shop and souvenir shop right next to the main road of CH.
Initially, we planned to go to Sg. Palas, as that's the newer and more canggih one. But we ended up going to the old BOH Centre. Why is that, u might wonder. Well, on the second day we were there, we include Jungle Trekking in our itinerary! I thought it woud be a leisurely walk in the woods but alas! It required steep climbing and true physical exertion! Gahhhhh! Nearly 2 hours of physical torture for the unfit me. But yeahhhhhh, all of us made it! Even little Azan (but he was carried by Mr. Ako most of the time, the cheater hehe). Wow, I was chuffed of course as we all made it and what more, the boys enjoyed and even cakap they nak pegi Jungle Trekking lagi in the future. Erkkkkk!
After trekking tu, balik hotel, terus mandi and had light lunch. Rehat about 3 hours macam tu and the boys dah ajak keluar lagik. Ohho! Ok la since nak pegi ladang teh kan. Tapi decide pegi ladang teh yang dekat sikit lah (penat leh nak pegi yang jauh lagi tuh, penangan jungle trekking la ni!) near Tanah Rata. So, tu yang pegi the old Boh Centre.
Far from saying it's booooring, the Superheroes enjoy aje pegi tengok ladang teh =) Nak sampai sini, jalannya sangat narrow and you even have to honk bila sampai corner yang melampau pusingannya. The roads memang winding.But the view cantik, and the udara cool and nice.
Gembira di BOH Centre yang 'retro' =)
Pakar mata kata elok sangat kalau kita banyak memandang kepada persekitaran yang hijau.
The small cafe.
Delightful tea-time snack!
Sangat nyaman menikmati teh dan scones di sini. Nyaman, sejuk aje. Best sangat.
Sedapnya air teh Mommy!
Busy serving tea to my heroes.
Enjoying the view.
Engrossed we were! Hahahah
My boys were fascinated with all the machineries there, and the strong smell of the just processed tea leaves!
Masuk kilang teh pun boleh seronok!
Okay gang, have to end this post now. I am actually feeling a little worried. Sebenarnya, esok we will be travelling. But the 3rd and 4th Superhero baru baik dari demam, and Mr Ako still demam!
We had a pretty much very low-key Raya Qorban this year. Bought all the ingredients for raya feast a day before and sent over to my Mom's. She prepared Nasik Minyak Colourful aka Hujan Panas aka Traffic Light. Paired with Rendang Campur and Ayam Goreng. Should have been with Chicken Qorma but the kiddies suka ayam goreng. Aisyooo, low-key betul lah sampai I forgot to snap the raya dishes...and now menyesal as the colors sangat cantik. Oh well.
After prayers and raya breakfast, we went off to my grandma. Lepak sekejap at her place and came back to my moms'. Then my sissy told us that she managed to book tickets for HP7 online for the 9.10pm show at the Gardens! Whee Hoo! We were sooooooo excited, and hubs paid for 9 Platinum Seats tixx, thank you Mr. Ako! We really appreciate your kind gesture, being the great fan of Harry, Ron and Hermione for 10 years! Haha. Pssstt.. Mr. Ako is also a fan, so I guess he was more than willing to pay for this raya treat kan? =)
Oh kiddies, life is always gooooood for you guys eh?
Happy Happy Land!
Yes, I am officially FAT, and no question about that!
Oh. But well, what the heck lah, will go on a diet soon.
Muka tahan lapar, nak serbu meja lah, apa ni tangkap2 gambar hishhhhh
Rombongan to the Gardens for Harry Potter 7

The distribution of popcorn session.
Now have to wait for months and months for the 2nd part. And boo hoo hoo, after that dah finito! No more.
My Superhero 3 had his annual school concert last Sunday. His class danced to Micheal Buble's SWAY, and I must say I was so proud of him and his friends. It was a really entertaining performence. Clap Clap!
Enjoy the pics peepos, can't elaborate as I am dashing off nak renew and buat passport the kids. Also, nak prepare untuk Raya Qorban esok!!!
Ohhhhh, apakah tujuan orang ke Cameron Highlands? Strawberry? Teh? Sayur? Bunga? Ya, lazimnya sebegitulah. Tapi yang paling utama adalah kerana Cameron Highlands ada sedikit unsur-unsur 'obersee'.
If you want to feel a tiny piece of the English Countryside, you can head off to Cameron. Well, it can't be denied that it's not as sejuk as it was say..... 20 years ago, but it still has its charms. And where else can you get the English 'vibe' if not at The Lakehouse or Ye Olde Smokehouse? We chose to stay at The Lakehouse. The place is a Tudor-styled boutique hotel, and it still stays true to what it was 50 years ago, with a little modernity to help us feel more at home ;)
For any of you whose idea of a perfect hotel stay includes a swimming pool, gym and TV in your room, this might not be the place for you. For myself, I appreciate the calm atmosphere of The Lakehouse, and revelled in its location which is atop a hill with the woodlands right at the back and rolling hills at the front. Only drawback is the once beautiful lake opposite is still under some revamping project which I guess would take forever to be completed.
Welcome to The Lakehouse
The terrace. We can have lunch, tea and dinner here.
I love it here!
Our very refreshing welcome drinks.
The children roamed freely at the gardens of the premise.
The place is maintained really well, especially the gardens.
Real wood, to light up the fireplace every day at 6.30pm.
Rest area, good place to enjoy a cuppa while reading.
The view from the rest area. Picturesque eyy?
Blooms are aplenty, it's forever springtime here!
The main wing and the house wing a little further up.
