Other than that, you have to pay a visit at the Tea Factory and Tea Shop to learn about tea processing and buying a couple of packets of tea as well. If you are visiting Boh Tea Estate at Habu, take sometime to hike up a steep flight of stairs that will lead you to the highest point of the estate (I think). From there you get to see a beautiful birds eye view of the Boh plantation. It will be worth the long hike up the stairs, thats for sure! At about 10.00 p.m., we were welcomed by the bone-chilling weather and the dark atmosphere of Cameron Highlands, trembling with exhaustion and craving for dinner. After dinner (or shall I say supper), we performed the jamak prayers and went straight to bed.
In the morning of 22 January 2012, we woke up to the freezing air emanated by natures air conditioner . The tap water was ice-cold but luckily our apartment is equipped with hot shower. We rented 3 Royal Lily apartments located in Taman Royal Lily, Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands. Each apartment has 3 rooms. Thank you Cikde and Ciksu for sponsoring our accommodation ^_^. May Allah bless both of you with eternal wealth and happiness. Heres the picture of our apartment:
Level 1 Was for grandmothers, aunts & uncles. The centre for cooking, dining and socializing with the whole family.
Level 2 Was for uncles, aunts, cousins.
Level 3 Was where my family, my parent, my siblings & their families stayed.
Okay, lets check out what was for breakfast.
My aunts famous french toast yummy!
Err..I fried a packet of frozen chicken fingers they loved it!
After breakfast, we headed to Cameron Bharat Tea Plantation. Whats the point of going to Cameron Highlands without visiting the famous tea plantation? Our next stop was the Big Red Strawberry Farm..
Next, we tried our hand at picking the red, juicy strawberries. That night, we had a barbecue back at the apartment.
