Of tall hill and highlands.

On labour day while the rest of you were still in bed, we headed up to Bukit Tinggi early in the morning to get some fresh air. 

Okay maybe not, I was still half asleep and recuperating from my sunburn from Perhentian.

Colmar Tropicale needs no introduction. This french themed village is one romantic venue to kick start the day! Wake up to a beautiful scenery, colourful windows, and fresh air. It is a perfect place for families to spend time together. 

Apart from performances, sand arts, bubble blowing, and picture snapping, you will also find restaurants that serve fine wine, western cuisines and sweet pastries.

Hello swan, we meet again :)

It hasn't changed much from the last time I visited Bukit Tinggi two years ago. Besides the French village, there is also paint ball, biking and other activities in store for the adventurous bunch.

We also hiked our way up their Japanese garden. 

It is only 5 minutes drive away from Colmar Tropicale.

Feeling very 'semangat', hiking up the hill in flipflops.

Caption 2:

Running out of breath, Lydia trying to drag me uphill.

Caption 3:

Lydia: OK I GET IT >.< 

hahaha just kidding

Caption 4:

YAY we made it. Or more like ..we surrender -__-"

Some of the attractions here include renting a kimono for a photo shoot at their zen inspired house.

Going downhill was a lot simpler. We even had time to stop by and camwhore.

Notice that we're all armed with a camera? hahahahaha

Anyway, by noon we were on our way up to Cameron Highlands.

Initially I was reluctant to visit the highland on a day trip. Who goes to Cameron Highlands for a half day trip? CRAZY.

But they persuaded me by showing me that it takes only an hour and a half drive away from where we were (on Google Maps)

So I gave in. Fast forward 1.5hours. . .


No. Apparently, Google Maps got it wrong, it led us to the small old trunk roads. AHHHH I let out a sigh. 

By the time we arrived at Boh Tea, it was already 4 p.m.

Lydia wanted her flowers, while I wanted my tea. So . .

Fresh tea and scones with strawberry jam and butter for tea ;) 

 I love their strawberry tart.

If only we could stay the night and enjoy a round of hot steamboat. 

That pretty much sums up our one day road trip. We are very proud to share that we covered 4 states in a day - Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Pahang and Kelantan. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the Kota Bahru signage again (dahla I just got back from the island the night before) but it was hilarious, losing our way and visiting different towns since we took the old trunk road. 

This is what I call a good road trip ;)
