The Highlander

Before I start about the our little trip to the highlamds I want to say that after wedding of my other best friend's wedding we gave the little one a musical box for being a good flower girl.

She was simply mesmerized!!
And couldn't take her eyes away!
Still looking and probably dreaming of her musical box!

Cameron Highland's is a hill resort about 5000 feet above sea level. We didn't plan for this trip, it just sort of happened and we were there in a flash. We managed to get a good deal on the hotel rates and stayed at the Strawberry Park Resort (click for more pics...this is not PPP).

The weather was cold and wet (you can even see the mist in some of the pictures) ... EXCELLENT because that is just the way I like it and we had fun playing cards, eating (flambbe (a new attraction) steamboat, scones, hot chocolate) and visiting a strawberry farm, the Boh Tea plantation (which was even colder because it was on a hill (driving there was hard becauae it was on a one lane road that was winding and slippery moreover, each time you took a sharp corner you had to toot your horn because it was impossible to see up ahead) and also raining and quite windy - had to wrap up the little one like an Eskimo) and a fruit, flower and vegetable market. I don't know if any of you had this but when I ws growing up we used to have a toy grand piano that stood on thre legs...well I've been looking for it fro a while and I found it in Cameron's...I bought it for daughter because we didn't pack any of her toys (told you we were rushing)! Here are the other pictures...

Flower girl! and waiter with Flambbe steamboat

More steamboat dishes and view of the tea plantation.

Wifey's flowers (see the mist rolling in)

An insect in a white lily and check out the size of that hibiscus!

More flowers (in abundance here) and my flower!
On a little bridge at the resort and after falling into a puddle of mud! :(

Wifey and little one walking at the resort. Daughter and strawberries!

More flowers!

At breakfast and at the cafe on top of the hill

After seeing all my blogging friends join I've also decided to join PayPerPost and with all the money I'm gonna make I'm going to go for more trips around the country and if I really make big bucks I'll even start flying out for holidays! Woo hoo Besides with Christmas drawing near I will be able to get more Santa Figures for my collection too! Then again maybe I'll buy that Playground set for my little one that wifey ad me have been eyeing! Maybe I'll get wifey a surprise gift with the PPP money that I'll be earning! Oh the possibilities are endless!! Endless I tell ya!
Maybe I'll make enough money to buy wife another diamond earring and get the little one the pick of the toystore. On top of thta I'll throw a huge Christmas party and invite everyone to join in the celebrations and have a real good time. I'd cater of course, using my PPP money!
Errr that's all folks and the journey continues!

Beautiful pictures GK..Been a while since my last Cameron Highlands trip just like GP..

Make sure you open account with Al Rajhi bank so can transfer the money from paypal to your acccount with the bank via a debit card ok :-)

Have a good weekend :-)

Adrian said...

Marzie! Yeah that picture was cute! LOL we were watching a little Strawberry Shortcake on the telly there too LOL

You really should go...there is a lot of construction but if you find a nice cozy place you don't need to venture out oo much...a drive to the tea plantaion and a visit to the butterfly farm and a few other interesting places is all you need to do :)

Cheers GP and have a great weekend! :)

Hi! My name is Project 71. Weird name I know, but my masters are weird too. My masters apologize for such an out-of-context comment and they know how painful such spamlike comments are. But, say masters, how else are we to present something good to the world. By that they mean me :D. Kindly see what I am about. Won't take you more than 22s to read... Enjoyy!
