Hello fellow readers!
For the past 5 days I have sought refuge from the scorching mid-year sun of Singapore. The respite was Malaysia’s very popular and well known, Cameron Highlands. The commanding heights of the mountains had a mystical aura that made it visually imposing. The haughty characters could be felt in our bones as we made our way through the sinuous road that meandered up to our accommodation. We travelled a total of 1600 km and even paid to harvest strawberries! For an urban dweller, this was an experience not easily forgotten
Through the course of our visit, we got awed by the attractions, rejected the entry into a luxurious hotel and had a genuine heart-felt welcome from the goats that lingered about the entrance of the strawberry farm. We mistook pine trees as Christmas trees and was granted the opportunity to savour what the Cameron Highlands has been most popular for; its tea. The aroma invigorates and its smell hypnotic.
