kim mah lun @ 29.8.09

started the journey from KL around 11ish am right after we have our early lunch with my parents who arrived from melaka at 9.30am & bro from cyberjaya who was not awake till we practically burst his mobile with our calls

meet up with the rest of the gang at Tapah rest stop while waiting for the rest of the group whom was late lah! biasa-lah... when u have like 38 of ppl joining the trip! or was it 41... i lost count. hahahaha!

all said use old road to kim mah lun, cus can stop by at the nice waterfall along the way, adoi, never see waterfall before meh, but then bila i reached the place, no regrets! the view was really nice, so calm, crowd was ok, guess coming to CH at puasa month is a good thing. hehe!

"are we there yet?" constantly on my mind, mciam Hi5 singing there. no regrets lor, that i passed the tickets to zmm, glad her dotters enjoyed the concert (though the parents are bored, haha!) next we came to this little tea place, which i also forgot the name. it was a nice lil break after a long drive, to have some tea & strawberry cheesecake. heaven! and not forgetting the cold weather. waaaa-weeee!

as usual, with the whole kampung together, we nearly turn the place upside down, with laughters & pictures taking!

oh finally we sampai-ed our apartments, desa anthurium. it was a nice place, all upmost important it was clean, organised and comfy. after settling down, off we lepak. some started preparing the food, some left to pasar tani to get some fresh veges, some started mahjong, and some just laze around. me? busy taking pictures lor

the 1st nite, we had steamboat ala sendirian berhad, and it was a blast. there were so much food, i was so happy especially eating with the whole kampung together-gether, it was a fun & cosy time. and plus the weather was shiok!

the next day, off we went to check out CH, 1st destination, of course the famous Sg Palas BOH plantations! i was talking about this place like forever man, lepas reaching kim mah lun. jakun mar me, 1st time coming here leh. paiseh paiseh!

the drive up to the BOH tea centre was a winding one, my cousin bro kept honking his car, and we thot at 1st it was for fun, but actual fact is to warn the incoming cars from the other direction! u see, the road up, was a tiny, good for only 1 car at a time, sometimes can muat 2 cars, and each corner u can't see the other car from opposite direction, so we were all honking our cars like someone was getting married. hahahaha!

upon reaching the centre, started la, camwhoring! hahaha... after that, time to enjoy some tea, pies, scones and cakes! the cafe was full house, but luckily we were able to get tables for ourselves. we spent a good few hours up at the BOH tea centre. it was really nice...

snap snap snap!

and it's pretty difficult to get everyone for a group picture lah, somehow somebody will be missing. we tried our best & imagine the poor fella we kidnapped to take pictures for us, 5 - 6 cameras leh. poor fella. hahaha!


then on our way down, we were stucked about 30-45 mins, cus someone is blocking someone lah! as i mentioned earlier, it was a tiny road, so someone has to give way to someone 1st lor. oh well, already stucked, might as well make the most of being stucked. so all came out from their cars, and start fooling around. siap make frens with other cars lagi, someone even mentioned time for poker. haha! that's the great part holiday-ing in groups, it's never boring. hehe!

after tea centre, off we go to strawberries farm, drinking smothies, eating ice cream and eating strawberries of course! dinner was BBQ! there was a bbq pit at our apartment area, and we had a good time till late nite. lil missy was pre-occupied with daddy's ifon till siap make fren with another neighbour's son. hahaha! kids... so fast can warm up de, how i wish adults were like kids. so natural, so sincere...

on our last day, we went to big big strawberry farm which belongs to my boss' family. it was really BIG! and the place is really nice. u can practically spend the whole day here, siap got kids' play-area. smart isn't it the owner, attack the kids 1st, then the parents will stay. hahaha!

i had some strawberries cakes & i tried their strawberry coffee smothie. wah, it was very nice! only recently introduced there wor, as the owner told me. very nice!

then it was time to go home. after checking out, we went over to Kea farm along the way, to buy veggies, flowers, sweet potatoes, corns, everything there is which caught our interest. we all drove to kampar to have lunch & then head home.

overall, it was a good trip, we all had fun. we should make this a yearly event. the last i heard, all planning on a redang trip. gosh.... sea sick! hehe...
