Forgot to post about this big burger you had for supper in Cameron Highlands. Chim Poh had read about it in the papers before we had gone to Camerons. In fact the restaurant was very near to the apartment. So on our second night there we walked to the restaurant to order your supper... right after dinner.
Look at the size of the burger. It's as big as the plate and half the height of the mineral water bottle!

So after everyone was ready, we headed downstairs to walk to the Tanah Rata township. While waiting for daddy and Chek Kong to talk to the building management office manager, we walked around and took some pictures:
After they were done, we took a stroll along the shops in Tanah Rata and Evelyn kept getting excited when she spotted a shop selling "ball-ball". We finally reached the end of the small township and coming to the place which was recommended by Ee-ee and friends (and also Chim Poh) to have scones and some light snacks. These are among the food we ordered:
Strawberry and plain scones and apple pie with ice-cream
After brunch, we were planning for another snack after loading the car of roti canai.. But in the end we left without eating because it started to rain.
The drive back to Ipoh was quite ok, despite the drizzle. We had something light and rest in Ipoh before our drive back to Penang.

We had spotted a strawberry farm at the bottom of this hill but it turned out to be the wrong one. Oops.. u-turn and off we went again. Finally we headed towards the sign which said "Healthy Strawberry Farm". Again, we drove up a windy and narrow road before reaching our destination. And yay, it was the same as the one we went to last time.
So we parked along the road (nope there was no proper parking) and headed into the farm. There were soem tourists around and we spotted the sign which said "strawberry picking, 1 box for RM25 with entry for 2 person". So I paid for 1 box and we headed in the direction the shop worker pointed out to us. We waited a while before the farm worker came. He was kind enough to let us all go in (his bosses were busy at the shop). So daddy took pictures of Ko-ko picking strawberries.
While waiting, he chatted with us and even picked a strawberry for you. Of course, you immediately started to eat your favourite fruit:
We walked around a bite more, admiring the strawberries and many other plants before leaving.
Next stop was the Boh tea plantation. We had spotted the Sungai Palas road which leads to the Boh Tea Plantation. It was rather sttep, but we decided to try it out. As we approached the Kea Farm the traffic was really heavy. So we decided to turn back. We were trying to decide between going home or to go to Habu where the other Boh Tea Plantation was. Phew.. it was a long drive, but at least you got to nap.
As we drove into the intersection it said 6 km to the plantation. We were initially quite happy that the road was quite wide. Unfortunately, it got narrower and narrower as we approached the plantation. It became from two lane to single lane road. Soon your Ko-ko was getting nervous. He even said to daddy "I think you should u-turn back home". Haha. The view was spectacular:
Unfortunately it was raining by the time the tour was over. We wanted to look at the shop and maybe have a cup of tea. But the shop was too crowded. So we gave up and headed back to the car and back to Tanah Rata.
A long day, but we all had fun. I'll load more pictures of the strawberry farm when I get the pictures from daddy's camera.

What happens when I play foosball and you have Evelyn as a partner?
Natalie Kor-kor said mummy only posted pictures of Evelyn on Facebook, so took this one with Chim Poh to be posted there. I'm a fair mummy.. *grin*
Here is naughty Evelyn who did not want to eat anything we gave her. In the end she only ate the fresh fruits. Surprisingly, she wasn't even interested in the yogurt which she usually shares with you at home..
We left after a yummy and late breakfast. Dropped Ah Ma and Chim Poh at the Tanah Rata township as they wanted to buy some things before going home. If you are wondering where Ah Kong and Chek Kong were... where else, but the golf course.. just across the road from us. (We even spotted then when we arrived at the hotel!!)
Soon it was almost dinner time. Evelyn decided to take a nap so we let her nap for around 45 minutes before I woke her up to go for dinner. Dinner was at the usual restaurant in Brinchang and while waiting for our table, daddy took Evelyn out for a walk and that was when she saw it...
The "bor-bor" (ball-ball). Yup, our ball crazy little girl spotted many shops selling balls. So as we were leaving we spotted a shop selling souvenirs and Chim Poh decided to get her a strawberry ball. Happiness for the little girl...
