Last Sunday Phoebe and I embarked on a long overdue vacation trip to Cameron Highlands. It was to be a 3 days 2 nights trip and we picked Cameron Highlands because Phoebe has never been there and I have been wanting to enjoy a hot steamboat meal there in the cold climate.
My dad was raised in Cameron Highlands, but when I did visit the place when I was a child, I spent most of the time around my Grandpa's place in Tringkap, which was nice and all but in retrospect it was probably boring as hell , I just didn't know it then.
Anyway, we started our trip from KL, drove all the way to Simpang Pulai, had a quick breakfast and continued our grueling trip up the mountainous roads to our hotel in Tanah Rata via Kampung Raja.
We passed by Tringkap, so I though I'd visit my Grandpa's house, which has been vacant since both my grandparents passed away.

We arrived at the hotel around 11am, but we could only check in at 2pm. To pass the time, we travelled by foot through a broken trail from the hotel to a jungle trekking site. We didn't go in far, but just deep enough to get a shot of a small waterfall.
Another random shot along the trail.
We stayed at Century Pines hotel. The building looks like a cheap flat from the outside but the interior was a different story.
The room we stayed in was pretty spacious, almost too big for a two person room.

Of course, I won't be a CG geek without sampling some textures whenever I can.
The steamboat was nothing special. But enjoying a steaming hot bowl of food in the chilly climate was really something.
