First Family Vacation Trip
Finally, we took the kids for our FIRST ever family vacation - Cameron Highlands!
Kids survived through the journey as they slept 1/2 of the winding journey. Well, I actually 'timed and planned' it that way. Ideally it's for them to sleep all the way during the winding journey but didn't turn out 100%. Ok lah, 50% pun boleh jadi!
We booked a 2-rooms apartment with Equatorial Hotel. Until they renovate the place, I wouldn't recommend the place. It was quite run down. :-( Just right before we turned in to the hotel, we saw a strawberry farm. So we took the kids to experience strawberry plugging. We were taught not to pull the whole stem but pinch the stem halfway.
Ern had so much fun plugging until we bought 3 trays of strawberry. Then, we stopped at the cafe for strawberry ice stick. It taste good, actually!! I love it personally.
We went to one of the steamboat restaurant at Cangkat Cering for dinner. Nothing special, honestly. It's a nice weather to eat steamboat outside of our own house, you know without perspiring kinda meal.
It was very down pour when we had our dinner. So we took our own sweet time to enjoy our meal until the rains stopped. We proceeded to Pasar Malam but it started to drizzle. Only hubb went down to buy supper and snack.
We went back to our apartments. Took a rest before we called it off a night.
The next day, we had our breakfast at the hotel and wanted to stop by Boh Tea Plantation. The rains was playing "hide and seek' with us. When we were about to leave, it started to rain. So we get stranded at the lobby and i started to take silly pictures of the kids. I especially like this picture as it so naturally. Priceless!
After a good 1hr, we went back to the apartment, packed and checked out. It was still drizzling and we decided to drop Boh Tea visit. Instead, we wanted to take the kids for Chocolate Factory along the journey, at least it's indoor and hopping kids get to see how chocolate was made. Manatau, the production is on break when we were there. :-( Well, we still came back with few packets of strawberry chocolate..
We detour to Ipoh for famous Ngah Choi Hor Fun before heading home.
Short 2D1N trip, but kids love it every pieces.
