Sunrise & Morning Walk At The Quintet, Cameron Highlands.

Surprisingly I slept quite well the first night in Cameron Highlands. After a few hours of good sleep, I was awake before 5:00 am the next morning. I went out to the living hall to do my quiet time and reading. Then it was hubby's turn to wake up. By 6:00 am, we were ready to go out for our morning walk while the rest of our friends were still sleeping.
6:20 am
 Our homestay is at the ground level of the above block. We walked a few rounds in this compound before venturing out to the opposite apartments.
 This is facing The Quintet.
 This was the car we saw the previous day and it was parked here. I used flash to take this snapshot and the words "Red Bull" stood out as white in colour.
6:45 am
 We walked back to The Quintet to continue our walk.

but the word of our God shall stand forever.

English Scones And Tea At Ye Olde Smokehouse, Cameron Highlands

We have made many trips to Cameron Highlands but this is the first time we visited the Ye Olde Smokehouse in Cameron Highlands. One of us has a friend working there and so we stopped by for a visit and of course to taste their English scones and tea.

We were interested in the homemade jam and English scones.

We want to enjoy the flowers and garden. We took pictures and left behind our footprints.

After the photography session, it was time to sit down to enjoy our tea and scones.

I drank my Cameron tea with milk minus the sugar.
We each had a scone.
Strawberry jam and clotted cream for our scones.
This homemade strawberry jam is so delicious.
This was a wonderful experience for me, eating English scones and sipping tea in a beautiful garden.
These was our lunch on the 2nd day of our holiday.
Walking to the car park.

For the 2nd day's dinner, we had hot pot again just to finish or use up whatever food or ingredients we brought to the highlands.
This time we had 3 packets of fresh mushrooms added to the hot pot. We finally managed to finish all the food and nothing was wasted. We spent the rest of the evening chit chatting and looking through all the photos we had taken. For future trips, we hope to take along some card games to play. 
This cute Snoopy dog picture was hanging in our room.
The 2nd night was not as cold as the first night.

Good news from far away is like cold water to the thirsty.

(Proverbs 25:25, New Living Translation-NLT)

Breakfast & Sightseeing In Cameron Highlands - 2nd Day

Hubby and I woke up early the 1st morning in Cameron Highlands. We went out for our early morning walk at about 6:00 am while the others were still sleeping. We walked within the compound of The Quintet and watched the sunrise. We walked a few rounds before the others joined us. When we had enough of walking, we got ready and drove out looking for breakfast.
We have no specific place so we just parked our car and walked into this place called Restoran He Ping Xiao Shi.
 Curry noodle
 Ban Mee
 Curry pork noodle
Sweet porridge or tong sui.
We shared the above food and sweet porridge.
Wall decoration in the restaurant.
 It was a weekday and early in the morning. 
Fine weather in the morning, expecting rain in the afternoon.
 Big Red Strawberry Farm with the no smoking sign on the floor.
Beautiful flowers
Amaryllis Lilies.
 Who has the biggest foot?

Convent school on the hill. 
 Barrel tables. 
When we reached our homestay, someone delivered the above pandan layered cake to our homestay. Just in time for our tea.

The good man's goodness delivers him;

the evil man's treachery is his undoing.

(Proverbs 11:6, The Living Bible-TLB)
