Stopping At Uncle Chow Kopitiam & Visits To Flower Gardens

We were looking forward to have our lunch at Barrack Cafe, which was recommended by a friend but it only opens at 2 pm on weekdays. We have more than 2 hours to wait, so someone suggested eating something light before we visit the flower gardens. We chose Uncle Chow Kopitiam.
 We ordered 2 bowls of curry noodles to be shared by 4 people.
 And 1 chicken pie for sharing because I wanted to taste their chicken pie.
 First, I cut it into halves.
 Then into quarters.
 Uncle Chow Kopitiam, Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands.
 Uncle Chow Kopitiam's mini succulent garden.
Then we visited a few flowers and cactus gardens.
Purple flowers
 Bird of Paradise flower
 Hydrangea
Big Purple Japanese flowers
 Yellow petunias
 Purple flowers
 Purple and red bell flowers
 Red bell flowers
 Succulent

 Orchid
 Hibiscus
Red hibiscus
We were at the Kea Farm when my friend accidentally saw the Kea Garden apartment which we were searching for on our previous visit.
We went to the Receptionist for some information.
They also have these mini budget chalets.
 The entrance is decorated with colourful lanterns.
 We have visited this place a few times and never knew that the Kea Garden apartment is just right behind the popular Kea Farm stalls.

The following pictures were taken at the Barrack Cafe, Tanah Rata.
"Orang Asli".
Before the arrival of the first visitor, the dense jungle-covered expanse of the Titiwangsa range was home to the indigenous aboriginal people known as the "Orang Asli'. Directly translated, this means "Original People". They are the native dwellers who know the rainforest like the back of their hand, living on nature's rich sustenance.
Old letter boxes and vehicle registration number plates mounted on the back wall of Barrack Cafe.


Blessed is the Lord, for he has shown me
that his never failing love protects me like the walls of a fort!
(Psalm 31:21, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. The chicken pie quite tasty. Yes, very mini. Just enough for the double sized mattress to fill up the whole floor space. A TV screen and the sliding door, that is it.

    1. Thank you, Phong Hong. This visit we observed that there were not as many beautiful flowers as the previous visits. Might be due to higher temperature.

    1. Yes, I think they are like little camping huts for kids. Not suitable for seniors like me and company. Lol! But they do have normal rooms.

  27. Photos of Camerons are always so nice.

    I have stayed at the apartments behind Kea Farm before. Problem is it's quite harrowing slowly driving through the crowd. We ended up minimising going IN and OUT.
