Ok not to bore anyone with all the pics... better choose some nicer ones...
Oh in any case I was upset and disappointed at one point in time realising I accidentally changed the size of my pics to vga and had snapped quite a number of pics in VGA mode...

but at least the problem was discovered earlier than later...

One of the ang mo couples followed us, though we never sit together. The wait for the food to arrive was really long... making me a bit panicky as we had limited time for lunch.

Finally ours arrived and the ang mos' have not and was their turn to panick...

Bf wanted a meat dish so as to have a balanced diet but I cannot remember any meat dish that was recommended so anyhow pick one (sweet and sour fish seems safe choice) - tasted average

Next up: Time tunnel

One of the reason I chose Cameron Secrets because this was in the itenary, something special which I cannot find in other tour agencies and that I wanted to go.

This was the last station in the tour. Next should be the car driving us back to hotel but we requested to go Tanah Rata instead (save on cab fare).

I wanted to go eat Steamboat as dinner but upon reaching Mayflower it was 5pm and the folks in the shop next to it told us Mayflower opened at 5:30pm.
Hmm 1/2 hr to go so Bf added since Cameronian Inn nearby might as well go try our luck at the scones again (end at 6pm).

My eyes lit up :D

tada... nice warm scones
Up to expectations as recommended from here

This was soooooo much better than Lord's cafe's... yummy but the location was a bit out of the way.

*aww* sad to say I wasn't really hungry actually after eating the scone ^^
Temperature have not drop to that low yet and I was wearing my jacket with a long sleeve turtleneck (quite warm)

The supposedly recommendation here was Tom yam soup (chicken soup was labelled too bland in some forums/blogs), but Bf had ulcer on his lips so not wanting to eat more spicy stuff... we settled for herbal soup.

lucky for me, Bf can really eat...

The food was average... guess hunger was the best appetizer and cold temperature as well (I just didn't have any)...

oh btw noticed something interesting in the restaurant...
extra ingredient in bak kut teh o_O

Dabao ondeh ondeh along the way...
Cant bargain for taxi to be cheaper than RM10 :(
Hotel staff told us std is RM8, now competitive can get RM5-6...

Not willing to be chop by taxi drivers, we decided to walk back to hotel from Tanah Rata...
Long walk but weather was fine and felt even easier to walk back as compared to walking bukit timah hill.
However, Sun went down really fast leaving me feeling really nervous walking at night in Truely Asia...

Passing by different hotels (getting false hopes thinking we reached)... until finally saw the lighted trees in front of our hotel then AHHHHH finally~~ :D

The gym that we never make use of... too tired, too late and my shoes were wet (wearing hotel slippers) hence cannot try any of the machines.

Nice stuff were towels, drinks provided and there was a TV in front kinda like u can watch TV and exercise at same time...

There was WIFI present around there. Using hp for a short while b4 heading towards playstation? (only 1 game available)

ahhh even though I did my homework (research, crawled websites etc for information)...

I wasn't really prepared for the coach ride home... so many curves and bends (made me bus sick while watching twilight: breaking dawn), I have to suppress down the urge to retch.

On the bus I tried taking pics since the scenery was spectacular at times.

We stopped for lunch somewhere after Ipoh... pink colour station with 4 stalls...
I wasn't feeling hungry after all the turns so I took 1.15 scoop of fried rice, 3 pcs of tempeh, some french beans, and something I forgot... the girl looked at my dish and charged me RM2!

So valued for money :D

Oh and the milo there very nice and thick and costs only RM1.60

To conclude,

the whole trip has its ups and downs but as long as one did one's homework thoroughly, should be able to meet expectations.

I know I will miss going certain places such as bee farm, chocolate factory (Avant), veg farms but I am ok with not going there currently.
Waterfall hotel staff recommend Robinson's and avoid Parit (due to fertilizer/insecticide pollution).

My jacket was really helpful during my trip - being waterproof and having hoodie (sheltered me from drizzle or slight rain), and cold to a certain extent. Having turtleneck sweater within the jacket gave really good protection against cold at night. There was no need to bring insect repellent since none work against flies. No mosquito present.

hmm that's abt it. Hope my thread will help those planning to go Cameron Highlands. :)
