Strawberry Farm @ Cameron Highland – Part 4

Argh~ I’m on a moment of hiatus again..Been wandering around and got not much time to update my blog..

Anyway..Here goes the fourth instalment of my Cameron Highland trip..

After the morning camwhoring activity we did at Bala’s Chalet, we went to the town area to have our breakfast..

There, we saw 2 girls, around the age of 16 years old, standing by the roadside and sticked out their left hands..

They were trying to hitch a ride from passers-by..Such a brave attempt..

Well, I guessed Cameron Highland is not like Kuala Lumpur or anywhere else in Malaysia..

It’s some kinda farmer’s village..So the people tend to be more friendly and less crime.??

Okay..After that, we went to one of the many strawberry farms there..

That 2 boxes of strawberries costs us RM 30 if I’m not mistaken..

Remember to pluck those really RED ones..Which the workers there claimed to be sweet and juicy..

Well, not much difference for me..It’s still sour..And I don’t really like strawberry..

I think that’s all for this post..

The final chapter of the Cameron Highland Pentalogy will be up next, which I don’t know when..Hahaha..

Hopefully I’ll finished it as soon as possible..

Final chapter, Bharat Tea Plantation @ Cameron Highland – Part 5 [Finale]..

The Morning @ Cameron Highland – Part 3

I’VE RECOVERED FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU~!! *raise hands up in the air and profusely shaking crotch*

I’m sick during the weekend and now I’m back in action..

Quite a lot of people got sick lately..At least 4 of my friends got sick in the past 1 week..

What the hell is this.?? Sick season.?? More weird of me..I got sick after playing futsal on Saturday midnight..

Then I slept for the whole day on Sunday, until this morning only I got off my bed..

Anyway, let’s back to my Cameron Highland trip story-telling..

*More corridor and more mini garden*

This was different from our room..This was on top on our room..

These was more like an apartment..These apartments / houses are double-storey..

Of course, there are beds on each floors..I guess it’s a room for 4..

Okay..Some explanations regarding the rentals of Bala’s Chalet..

This place is not something that you can fit 5 people in a room for 2..You are required to rent accordingly to how many person you guys are staying there..

Meaning.? We rented a room for 3 because we have 3 people..

Yatz’ Friendly Bala’s Chalet Rental Advice

You might book a room for 2 or 3 for like a happening trip for 5 or more..

Then, the remaining people could just slip in the room after they have checked-in for like at least 10-20 minutes..

But bear in mind that you CANNOT park your car(s) in the garden because the garden isn’t THAT big..

So, the caretaker / room cleaner would noticed it if you have 2 cars for 2 people.?? Weird huh..

Don’t worry if they peep into your room..Curtains are provided..

You can have your meals in the chalet..They’ll cook it if you ask for it, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner..

But if you are staying there with the non-correct amount of people, DON’T have your meals there..Just drive out to the ‘town‘ area..

A vast varieties of foods available there..Say goodbye to the no-food-at-Cameron-Highland thoughts..

Cameron Highland – Part 4 still to come..It hasn’t end yet..

R.I.P Uncle Meng

Not long after the death my mom, my uncle, who is my mom’s lil bro, died due to liver cancer or something, at the age of 48..

He passed away peacefully in the emergency ward of University Malaya Medical Centre (PPUM) at 2.22pm yesterday, 24th of November 2006..

My mom struggled for like, 8 years before her life ended in late April 2006..

But for my uncle, we called him Meng, he struggled for like, only a year after he had discovered about the tumour in his liver or something..

The problem is, he didn’t try to get any treatment from any medical centre or specialist..

He’s so stubborn that he didn’t want to listen to any advice regarding treatment or such..

He would yell off any advices from family members, friends, and colleagues..

Until around 1 month ago, he started to feel uneasy..Felt off the stairs at working place for few times, I heard..

Then his body, from abdomen way down below to his toes, was SO swollen, containing water / liquid in his body..

But from chest way up above to his hair, was SO thin..I would described it as dried up..

The shape of his skull was so obvious, leaving only his ears looked fleshy..

His body swelled due to liver failure, being unable to process substances (or something) in his body..

Hence all the unprocessed thingies trapped in his body and going no where..

Upon reaching the emergency ward in the noon yesterday, the doctors shocked and puzzled with his condition, for not receiving any treatment before..

After checking for less than an hour, the doctors said his condition is VERY critical and couldn’t be saved anymore..

Even with the help of medical apparatus and medicines and all, it’ll only extend his life for a week or two, approximately..

But of course, it might be less than a week, depending on his own strength and stuffs..

After the doctors tried to extend his life, it changed the other way round..He was going to the other world at anytime..

When the time came, he just let go everything and passed away just like that..

So, the thing here is, was he being stubborn or what.? Why didnt want to receive any treatment.??

Perhaps he thought it’s just a waste of money to try to cure something that has only a slim chance to be fully cured..

Or maybe he could have cured it by the time he was diagnosed with a tomour in his liver, suspected to be cancer of course..

No one knows..He might have to struggle for years and in the end died because of the illness, like my mom..

Or he could just save the money for other use or keep it for his family members or something..

Anyway, rest in peace Uncle Meng..

Chill-out Night @ Cameron Highland – Part 2

LET’S GET DRUNK FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU~!! *raise your hands up in the air and profusely shaking crotch*

Let’s get started from where we left in Part 1..

After scrutinizing every corner of the chalet, we went out to look for a place for a decent dinner..

The thought of difficulty to find food around at night is absolutely just a myth..

We had no problem looking one..If you want to sit around at mamak til midnight isn’t a problem at all, too..

Cameron Highland was quite cold in the night..So we had steamboat..

*Cun chick*

As usual, my Byakugan did the trick once again in spotting a cun chick..Fair and lovely..

Eat steamboat in Cameron Highland was so heavenly enjoying..The Tom Yam soup was so hot and spicy, yet we were eating in comfort..

No sweat at all..I was even with my jacket on..

After the steamboat, we went back to our room at Bala’s Chalet to enjoy the night..

Err, not orgy of course..We played games with alcohol comsumption..

*The whiskey, the soft drink, the cup, and the deck of card*

*Chivas Regal..Syok habis*

*I’m Red-man*

*OMFG~!!*

I drank quite a lot coz I kept losing and losing and losing..

Billy : Hmph~ *frown*..Yatz~! You cheat whiskey to drink izzit.?? WTF..

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

*I’m totally utterly drunk*

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

*My head is gonna blow*

Okay..After that, I can’t stand up straight..I just kept falling and falling when I got up on my feet..

Then I was sent to dreamland and had a nice sleep til the next morning..

That’s all for Part 2..Do look forward to the third instalment coz I have heaps of pics of the nature-bound Bala’s Chalet..

Til then, sayonara..

1 Night @ Cameron Highland – Part 1

After some moment of hiatus, I’m back with some interesting posts..

It’s my one day trip to Cameron Highland -the land of sien-ness- in the past 2 weeks, with Billy and sidekick, Rechelle..

I think I’ll cut the story by narrating the pics below, and be ready with heaps of pics..

We snapped quite some pics..

And I’m going to share most of it with you guys coz the scenery was so serene and mesmerizing..

*The snake road*

We reached the entrance of the hilltop, where we can see farms of vegies, strawberries, teas, and all sorts..

If I’m not mistaken, the place is called Kampung Baru or something (somewhere Brinchang)..Can’t really remember..

Then we went all the way up to Equatorial Hotel, which Billy already booked earlier on..

From the Kampung Baru (or something) up to Equatorial Hotel took about 15-20 minutes drive..Imagine..

*Equatorial Hotel*

*More like apartments*

When we reached Equatorial Hotel, suddenly Billy thought of finding another hotel/resort chalet which he heard from his friend..

It’s the Bala’s Chalet, Hotel & Restaurant, somewhere Tanah Rata, which is another side of where we came from (Brinchang)..

But due to the our first time visit (or rather unfamiliar), we didn’t know that there are 2 entrance..One is Brinchang (where we came from) and another one is from Tapah..

Upon asking Billy‘s friend, he said around 15-20 mintues drive downhill from Equatorial Hotel..So we took the road we came from..

Felt kinda weird..Asked around the residents there..It’s actually on the otherside..

So we drove back to Equatorial Hotel (which is 15-20 minutes drive), and on top of that, another 15-20 minutes drive from Equatorial Hotel to Tanah Rata..

Hence, we had wasted around an hour just to look for that secretive Bala’s Chalet..

Bala’s Chalet is so secluded that not any normal human-being would noticed it, if you aren’t really looking for it..

We reached there around 6.30pm and checked-in a room for 3..It costed around RM160 per night, after some bargaining of course..

This pic is just a mockery..Don’t set your sight on Billy, but on the picture he’s pointing at instead..

Can you see something fishy.?? Hehehe..It’s actually a pic of orang asli in the nude..Wtf..

I think that’s all for the first part coz I have more pics in hands for other activities..Perhaps I’ll separate them into 4 parts or so..

I had a Langkawi Trip Pentalogy posts, of 3 days 2 nights..This Cameron Highland Trip instalment of just 2 days 1 night is almost equivalent to the Langkawi posts..

Talk about camwhore..Hahaha..

Til then, adios..

Jigoku Shoujo OP – Sakasama no Chou

It has been quite a while since I last listen to nice anime OSTs..

I mean, there are other good anime OSTs, such as Death Note OP, Nightmare by The World..

But I don’t want any rock songs at the moment..

Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) OP, Sakasama no Chou by SNoW is so nice that I listened to it continuously for 4 hours..

Just try it and you’ll know..Ask the MP3 from me if you don’t know how to find it..Enjoy..
