Kuantan-Genting-Ipoh-Cameron trip - 22 Feb 09

Wake up at around 8.30am today and left for breakfast at around 9.30am. Angel is so clever, once she see the door is open, she quickly head to the car. She couldnt get into the car cos she dun have the strength to open the car door. Super cute loh, once the car door is open, she quickly climb up the seat.

I had chee cheong fan for breakfast. The prawn one taste nicer than the char siew one. I found the char siew one a bit hard and not juicy.

We headed to Cameroon Highland after breakfast. This is my 2nd time visiting Cameroon. We are driving up to Cameroon Highland using Simpang Pulai road which is less winding. Simpang Pulai is abt 1/2 hr from Ipoh and is nearer to Ipoh compared to Tapah.

We reached Cameron around 11.20am and went to a farm which you can pluck your own vegetables. I prefer coming here on my own as i can choose which farm i want to visit whereas the previous visit, the tour guide brought us to selected farms.

Saw the board?

After lunch, we proceed to a strawberry farm. We didnt pluck any strawberries here but we tried the strawberries ice. We choose the fractose one which is quite sweet for me. Angel so clever, she's the 1st to finish while i'm the last. Haha...

Anybody interested?

BOH tea centre is the largest tea farm in Cameron. It's situated at Sungai Palas which is 2km off the main road and there is only a road which can only accomodate one car at anytime. This explains why there is no tourist bus at BOH tea centre.

Visitor is able to tour the factory and is FOC. There are time interval on the visits. Do check before proceeding into the factory. The whole tour took less than 10min. I was disappointed that it ended so soon, well, FOC so cant expect much.

After that, we went to the souvenir shop and i bought some teas back.
