Looking Over CH

What is the one good thing about visiting Cameron Highlands? Haze free! After all the smoke and smog in the city, it was good to take in some fresh air. But take it in when it is early in the morning or late at night. Because smack in the afternoon, the cars and buses will still haunt you up there.

Water Cress Valley

But fresh air is not the only thing I discovered high up there. I discovered a place called Water Cress Valley! It is basically a farm for water cress, the vegetable that people usually use to boil soup. They also do herbal tea with it and I love the water cress herbal tea. Well, Sharon didn’t but its ok, more portion for me :P

At this place, there is a also a restaurant which serves good old charcoal steamboat. I found it delicious, my dad thought those in KL were better. I don’t know, there is just something about eating steamboat in a highland. It makes it all better.

Pano view of Bharat Tea Plantation

But of course, when in Cameron Highlands, one must always visit the tea plantations. And eat some scones. The Bharat Tea Plantation had good scones, tea wasn’t so good (the irony of it all). But it had good views and that made up for the lack of tasty tea. Click the above picture for a larger view of the pano shot.

Thats it for this weekend. I will be sharing with you some shots from our strawberry adventure next week :)
