cameron highlands (ii)

A continuation from the previous post on our trip to Cameron Highlands (i).

Hiking the tea hills (or mountains?!?!)
After our filling lunch, we braved the mountains… with 2 toddlers. The climb was so steep, I was clambering and out of breath. It was torturous (for me la..).

This is only like less than 10% of our trail… pengsan My mum must be so tired, but she still smiled for the camera… bless her :-D And my man is still able to do this nearly the whole way up… I salute him. QQ must be feeling she's on top of the world! HQ is great as he walked most of the way and didn’t need anyone to carry. One picture at the peak. Everyone felt exhilarated; we finally made it!!! :-D
As the air was crisp and cool, we didn't feel too hot and uncomfortable. The view at the top is definitely worth the climb! My kiddos on the way down. Still can run at the foot of the mountain. That kid…
Our last stop is at the market, where we bought loads of super sweet corns, to give to friends and relatives. Lots of vege. And we saw colourful flowers. Look at the size of those radishes! If we buy one of those, we’ll be eating radish morning, noon and night, for days! Our dinner that night – buttered prawns, lala in superior soup, pig’s intestines (hubby and I don’t usually eat, but these were yummy! sorry, non-halal), and of course sweet and sour meat (picture shows all nearly disapu habis). It was a tiring but enjoyable trip :-).

Are the veggies in Cameron cheaper than what in supermarket?

How was the Pearl Corns? The last round we went, the stall give us not that nice ones :(.

BoeyJoey said...

smallkucing: I didn't carry anyone and I was half dead. I don't know how he managed leh...

We are all corn lovers, and we bought LOADS. Ours were very very sweet, huge & crunchy. But after some time in the fridge, they start to get dry and lose its sweetness, which we throw into soups later.
