My Cameron 'Girls' Trip

                         Girls trip, aaahhhhh well let's start with this issue, as a working mom with husband and kids, is it really ok for us to go on a girls trip? most often if we do it, we might feel guilty which then prevents us from truly enjoying the trip. Yet girls trip has lots of benefits. As mothers who're responsibility never ends even when you are on vacation with your family this is one of the rare occasions where we can really relax and have' me' time.
                        I love having it, I need more of it, this does not mean I am a bad mom, selfish, irresponsible, because I find that by having this trips sometimes it makes me a better mom, appreciate my family more and a happier and grateful wife because hubby lets me on this relaxing trip while he takes on the family responsibility alone for a while. (hilang semua marah merajuk kan)
                        Well so, last September, I went on a very short weekend trip with my' geng' (ex-UKM best mate to Cameron HighlandIt'sts short and sweet yet leave such great memories to remember. I feel it's important to create beautiful memories in life and I find this in travel and family/close friends gathering.

Went to Cameron by bus. 

kagum dengan TBS, dah macam airport dah.

Me and my travel buddy chok, meeting more friends who've been here 1 day earlier to hike up the mossy forest. (me tak pegi sebab tok laki ta bui) 

In front of our hotel, The Smoke House. Cantik gile, europian style boutique hotel. 

Soon after we arrive and had lunch, we took a private ride up to the mossy forest tourist center. The forest is truly mystical and beautiful.
After taking tons of pictures, we fie, selfie we took the same private ride back.

Next stop, tea plantation. Another mesmerizing green scenery. and great food too.

I ordered fruit scones and black tea, it's freshly baked and it is sooooo good, my tea, of course, it tastes better up here right

The scones are served with fresh creme and strawberry jam.

Me and my friends, really what better ways to enjoy your afternoon tea than good food, good company and great scenery.

we went down to walk around the plantation for a while

karaoke next, of course never enough time singing. Then back to our beautiful hotels, bath and maggi time (awesome!!)

From inside our room, really classic, tho my friend have a supernatural experience here, hehehehe. I slept like a baby. I find that if I travel to a place that is really remote and calm, I slept better.

We booked a suite with 2 rooms. The 2nd room.

The corridor sitting area, for us to enjoy the cool outdoors. That on the table is my early morning coffee and cakes before breakfast.

more hotels corridors view.

The rooms comes with a complete served English breakfast. 

Some of the views inside the hotel lobby, I really love it, so classic and rustic.

So on the 2nd day also coming home day, after the morning market for souveniers, we went to the lavender farm. Having been to a truly natural lavender farm in Canada, this one is just OK but still i enjoyed the visit very much.

with my lavender icecream

I love hydrangeas. 

This is our last stop before driving back to my friends place in Ipoh. The plantation ATV centre, however when we got there we fekt scared to ride our own atv so we took a jeep ride instead.
Then, we drove to Ipoh, had laksa tea at our friend's place and they drop us at the train station to ride a train home to KL

It was such a wonderful short excursion. Refreshing and sweet and I am glad I did it.
