Enjoying food in cold weather ...

I thought I am done with my Cameron Highlands trip posts since it's just another place locally but then, I haven't post one important aspect of blogging, which is the food! OK, before that, enjoy some beautiful flowers first to calm your mind.

These pictures were taken at the Lavender Garden.

Lavenders!

Colourful!

Red and purple!

They are planting tulips!

A variety of the flowers there ...was it some chrysanthemum ?

Then, I brought my little princess to pick strawberries and we ended having fresh strawberries there. It was so nice eating the sweet and sour fruits on the spot. (after paying!)

My little princess was delighted and busy!

I love this ... raw grapes


Then, I was at an evening market in Tanah Rata where they sold all sorts of produces from the highlands. While my wifey and her sisters were busy shopping, I was busy eating by enjoying the hot and fresh sweetcorn and tapiocas sold there. It was heavenly, having something sweet and hot in a cold weather!!

Sweet tapioca ... tasted like the Japanese type! I like!
ooh... the corn was very sweet and it was very hot!! I had a few sweetcorns during those few days.
And, last but not least, since we knew a local who stayed there, we were brought to places with affordable yet simple but fresh food for our meals. We ordered mostly vegetables since they are so fresh there. I guess some other eateries will likely hike up the prices since they knew we are tourists.

Forgot what's this called but it's smooth and big.

A mixed platter of brinjal, petai, ladyfingers.... 

err... also forgot what's this called but a common vegetables dish.

OK, with that I wrapped up my CH trip till I visit this beautiful place again!! :)

  8. Looking at your photos, it reminds me of my own trip in June. When I were there we did not manage to pick our own strawberries as all so small and unripe.

    I would love to go back to CH again.
