Cameron Trip

Supposedly after my previous final examination I should have followed my ex-housemates to Cameron before I went to Kampar for 2 weeks. However the timing was not right so I ended up going back Penang for 2 days to celebrate my mum's birthday.

During the preparation period for "xia xiang" (筹备营) we planned a trip to Cameron as our last trip together. Therefore after sending our juniors off, we set off to Cameron without making any reservations. Everything was just, spontaneous!'

Took group picture with the juniors before they set off

Took bus from Kampar to Tapah, had lunch and took bus from Tapah to Cameron. The latter journey took us about 3 hours, as it was a "bas berhenti-henti", not an express bus. Whatever it is I do not mind, since this trip was supposed to be a budgeted trip =)

Found a quite nice 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms apartment when we reached the terminal bus.

Rainforest Apartment (ours was the ground floor front lot)

I would recommend this apartment as it is quite spacious and was able to fit the 10 of us perfectly at a reasonable price. RM360 for 2 nights! Besides that, plates, bowls, pans and cutlery were provided and was even a BBQ pit with BBQ sticks! All we needed to do was to buy ingredients.

View outside the apartment

And we even had a "gardener"! XD

However bear in mind that once in a while you might be able to see cockroaches passing by you. And yeah, there was this annoying cat which would jump into the house through windows. Somehow it was not scared of human and the worst thing was, it ate Shyuan's Michael (hamster).

Yes, you heard me right. It ate Michael but did not swallow. The bundled dead body was found the next day. So disgusting, isn't it?

But besides this incident, the house is quite nice =)

A very special looking spider building its cobweb

After resting for a while, we walked out to the shops and explore the area.

Small little town

Happily eating ice-cream when it was quite cold over there

As we passed by 4D shop, we decided to buy a number to try out our luck. That was my 1st experience stepping into this kind of shop and bought the 1st number in my life.


Our 1st dinner in Cameron - Steamboat

During night time, our only entertainment besides playing cards was watching Pink Panther in Cartoon Network. Childish huh? Hehe we are still kids anyway XD

The silly Pink Panther

Despite Michael's misfortune, we still had fun the next day with our day tour. Well, we went to only a few places as we just wanted to relax ourselves.

First stop: Rose Garden

There are many kinds of flowers in Rose Garden. And that was where we shot our personalized MV =) Was tagged in Facebook so you guys can check it out. But I guess the song is only familiar to those who joined "xia xiang" before.

When these 2 flowers combined, they formed a pretty "butterfly" shape

Lady Shoe flower, don't you agree with the name?

Happy family ^^

Second stop: Strawberry Farm

I tell you, I am a strawberry lover but I hate almost every food and drink with strawberry flavour because they will normally taste like antibiotic. However, the jam, pancakes, strawberry pure juice and strawberry shake in strawberry farm were awesome! They tasted nothing like medicine!!! Haha totally fall in ♥♥♥♥♥♥ with them.

Third stop: BOH Tea Plantation

Were brought along to BOH tea factory tour before we ended up in this cafeteria with breathtaking tea plantation view.

Cute Yew ^^

Fourth stop: Cactus Valley

Well, that was our final stop for the half day tour. After purchasing some lil cactus as souvenirs, we went for lunch, which was then interrupted with the news that our results were released. Great. Totally spoilt our mood.

When we reached our apartment, some went to sleep, some were texting friends about results, trying to access the intranet for results, playing cards, flying kites and some were even blowing bubbles.

For example, Shu Jun. She was blowing away love bubbles to her darling hehe.

In the evening, we went shopping for groceries for BBQ. That night, it was my 1st experience to wear a jacket while BBQ-ing and yet still shivering with cold. So, can you imagine how cold was it that night??

So, basically that was how my trip went. Everything was fresh to me because the last time I went was when I was still a lil kid with not much memories. Appreciated every moment with them and I hope we still get to meet each other in the future. Take care everyone!!!

♥ Love you peeps ♥
