A night stay at Cameron Highland

This trip was planned since a month ago.

Initially 4 families joined, end up just 3 families due to last minute appointment.

Hubby and I reached late evening on Saturday, while the other 2 families of friends were there since afternoon.

Straight to the apartment upon arrival, quite cold and hungry already >.<

We stayed at Rose Apartment located at Brinchang, a 2 storeys apartment with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the kids love the staircase and we got to watch them playing with it xD

Watching TV while munching on Mimi~~

We prepared own steamboat, a perfect meal to have in the cold weather

It was drizzling that night so we couldn't go anywhere but staying in. The men had some beer themselves while the ladies busy looking after the active running kids~~

It was a cold night and supposedly one can doze off easily. Too bad I couldn't sleep at all 😑
I was actually quite tired but just couldn't sleep, probably because I miss my own bed :( I think it has been quite some times since I last suffered from insomnia. Anyway luckily my kids had no problems.

So I got up very early the next morning *yawn*
After getting ready we were all ready to check out.

Cheeky fella

Toby: Mummy I don't want to go! 😛

Dear mummies friends~

A nice greenery view behind us

A must-have group photo before we left!

Personally, I am quite satisfied with the apartment though it's a bit old.
The whole apartment is well-equipped with necessities and the rooms are ok too. Good if you are going with a group of people.  
Most importantly I think the price is reasonable, RM400 per night, and the location is pretty good too (nearby rose farm and morning market).

One thing I would suggest to the management though, to make the apartment more child-friendly, like installing a safety gate ;)


Leaving the apartment, we had a quick walk at the nearby rose farm.

My naughty little past life lover

Very hard to get all of them to cooperate for a nice shot 😧 

We then proceed to the nearby morning market to get some fresh fruits and vegetables.

Then to Raju's Hill to had some yummy strawberry desserts!

Miss their strawberry ice cream!! 

We went into the strawberry farm to self-pick their strawberries.

I guess it was Aden's first time in self picking his favorite fruit ;) He had fun!

While little Toby had fun playing with the soil =_=

We all love their big and juicy strawberries! 
There's no charge for entrance, only on the strawberries you picked, we paid RM 30 for half kg. 
I actually want my kids to experience the fun in picking the strawberries so the money paid is worth it la!

Bought this photo with frame at RM 30, photo taken by the farm's staff.
Expensive, but never mind, good to keep as souvenir rather than buying strawberry keychain or umbrella 😜

Next station, Lavender Garden.

Seeing the beautiful lavender here makes me happy!

Had some tea break before we say bye bye Cameron!

Bought some roses home, of all the beautiful flowers my favorite is still rose 💓

We left Cameron shortly after cause the kids started to yawn already~
In fact all of us were tired, plus we got a wedding reception to attend that evening.

A few hours of dating with le hubby 😍

 Bumped into friends! 

It was rather a rush trip for us but I am thankful because we made it!! I mean most of my friends (including me) are busy with own lives and families now, we only get together during special events like CNY, so I really appreciate random gathering like this.

It is no doubt tiring tagging kids along (especially if you have 2 kids and above), our bodies aching, but I believe the memories are sweet 😏
I sure am looking forward to the next gathering ^^

Of Zoo Taiping & dinner

Hi world! *wipe spider web*😏

It feels like ages since I last came here, I do miss blogging and blog hopping! Too bad time is really not enough for me, was busy with the kids last few weeks cause both of them were sick >.<

Anyway, glad that both are alright now, but I am still that busy hahaha!!
Do give me some times to visit your blogs ya ^^

Hubby and I planned to bring the kids to zoo Taiping since last month and finally we made it few weeks ago. This is Aden's second visit and Toby's first ;)

Mr daddy aka the chauffeur

I remembered Toby got a mild fever that time, but he sweat a lot during the visit and fever gone after we went home xD

Toby: Let's go! 

But trip to zoo this time was a bit disappointing.
Because a lot of animals were missing! (Or may be hiding somewhere ...)
The last visit to zoo Taiping was fine, but now, what happened??

Mr crocodile busy sleeping...

And Mr chimpanzee was too far away to spot

Some parts of the playground was a bit dirty

But the kids don't mind at all.... =_="

The only family photo that morning.
Kinda tired already cause it was a hot morning, and we walked a lot.
Not many photos taken, busy chasing the 2 running kids~~

We spent about 2 hours in the zoo, yea a very quick one cause as I said, a lot of animals were missing so nothing much to see also.
Not really worth visiting the zoo at the moment... 
Anyway, if you are interested, you may click HERE to learn about the ticket pricing and all. 

Spending time with family is important, spending time with friends is equally important too ;)

Attended a dinner gathering few days ago, organized by my dance class instructor. We are taking a 6 weeks break from dancing from today since our instructor is going back to her hometown, so it's good to have a dinner gathering before we meet again next year ;)

Chit chatting while eating with these ladies was fun! I din't think about my kids during the 3 hours dinner LOL!
Seriously need more ME time like this <3

On the table that night was some very common home-alike cooking so nothing to shout about~

But we all had a great time catching up with each other. To my dear dancing members, see you all next year!
