This is a close-up of tea leaves before harvest.I had, for the longest time wanted to go to Cameron Highlands. Think 15 years. Haha.
Each time I wanted to go, there was always something or other that got in the way!
So, last weekend (Friday 13th to be sure!) I arrived in CH! At long last!
I was surprised for one, at how bustling it was. I suppose I had always imagined CH to be quieter... in an English country-side kind of way. What I found instead was something busier and bigger. Not in a bad kind of way though.
I'm glad I came when I came. Before it gets too big, too commercial, too not-so-quaint anymore.
There is even a Starbucks on main street! And I got two bags of used coffee-beans to use as fertiliser! Haha. They were giving away bags and bags of them. For free. What a great idea.
We drove to the Boh Tea Plantation early Saturday morning;
1. for a spot of tea. Nah, not really. We'd had breakfast in town and were still quite full.
2. because that's what one does when one is in CH... it's one of those you haven't been to the place if you havent done such and such kind of thing.
3. to take pictures! yes! oodles and oodles of them! Tea plantations are so scenic! Unfortunately, none of my scenery pictures came out nice enough to show on here. Point and click you know. And the weather wasn't too kind for that kind of camera. I am so jealous of my travelling partner. He and his camera make no less than stunning pictures!
Here are some flowers that caught my eye.
