A night stay at Cameron Highland

This trip was planned since a month ago.

Initially 4 families joined, end up just 3 families due to last minute appointment.

Hubby and I reached late evening on Saturday, while the other 2 families of friends were there since afternoon.

Straight to the apartment upon arrival, quite cold and hungry already >.<


We stayed at Rose Apartment located at Brinchang, a 2 storeys apartment with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the kids love the staircase and we got to watch them playing with it xD


Watching TV while munching on Mimi~~


We prepared own steamboat, a perfect meal to have in the cold weather

It was drizzling that night so we couldn't go anywhere but staying in. The men had some beer themselves while the ladies busy looking after the active running kids~~

It was a cold night and supposedly one can doze off easily. Too bad I couldn't sleep at all 😑
I was actually quite tired but just couldn't sleep, probably because I miss my own bed :( I think it has been quite some times since I last suffered from insomnia. Anyway luckily my kids had no problems.
 

So I got up very early the next morning *yawn*
After getting ready we were all ready to check out.




Cheeky fella


Toby: Mummy I don't want to go! 😛


Dear mummies friends~


A nice greenery view behind us


A must-have group photo before we left!


Personally, I am quite satisfied with the apartment though it's a bit old.
The whole apartment is well-equipped with necessities and the rooms are ok too. Good if you are going with a group of people.  
Most importantly I think the price is reasonable, RM400 per night, and the location is pretty good too (nearby rose farm and morning market).

One thing I would suggest to the management though, to make the apartment more child-friendly, like installing a safety gate ;)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leaving the apartment, we had a quick walk at the nearby rose farm.



My naughty little past life lover

Very hard to get all of them to cooperate for a nice shot 😧 


We then proceed to the nearby morning market to get some fresh fruits and vegetables.

Then to Raju's Hill to had some yummy strawberry desserts!


Miss their strawberry ice cream!! 


We went into the strawberry farm to self-pick their strawberries.


I guess it was Aden's first time in self picking his favorite fruit ;) He had fun!

While little Toby had fun playing with the soil =_=



We all love their big and juicy strawberries! 
There's no charge for entrance, only on the strawberries you picked, we paid RM 30 for half kg. 
I actually want my kids to experience the fun in picking the strawberries so the money paid is worth it la!

Bought this photo with frame at RM 30, photo taken by the farm's staff.
Expensive, but never mind, good to keep as souvenir rather than buying strawberry keychain or umbrella 😜


Next station, Lavender Garden.

Seeing the beautiful lavender here makes me happy!






Had some tea break before we say bye bye Cameron!


Bought some roses home, of all the beautiful flowers my favorite is still rose 💓


We left Cameron shortly after cause the kids started to yawn already~
In fact all of us were tired, plus we got a wedding reception to attend that evening.

A few hours of dating with le hubby 😍

 Bumped into friends! 


It was rather a rush trip for us but I am thankful because we made it!! I mean most of my friends (including me) are busy with own lives and families now, we only get together during special events like CNY, so I really appreciate random gathering like this.


It is no doubt tiring tagging kids along (especially if you have 2 kids and above), our bodies aching, but I believe the memories are sweet 😏
I sure am looking forward to the next gathering ^^

  1. Your photos are lovely with all the happy faces! I have passed that apartment many times but was curious how it looked inside. Now I believe I could rent this place for its reasonable price and enjoy own steamboat too. I must make a visit there soon to see the lavender flowers!

  14. It is fun going for a getaway with friends especially if the kids are all around the same age. It is tiring at times but as long as the kids are happy, it is all worth it :)
