Notes by traveldiary007 on Sunday, June 9th, 2013 under Cameron Highlands-A cool-weather place

Standard Post with ImageI don't want to leave the place but I have to go back to Singapore to work.  I love the place. I really, really love the place. The surroundings, the friendly people, the cool weather, fresh fruits, vegetables and fresh air.  I love everything in there.  And the tea? Hmmmm... Love it! My bus leaves in Equatorial Hotel at 10AM. I checked out at 9AM and asked the receptionist if they can call a taxi for me.  I asked how much is the taxi fare from the hotel to Equatorial and he said about RM20 (US9.00) and it takes around…more

Notes by traveldiary007 on Sunday, February 17th, 2013 under Cameron Highlands-A cool-weather place

Standard Post with ImageI woke up at 12:00noon and we are still inside the bus, on a zigzagging road.  If you have motion sickness, you will really have a headache.  I'm glad my body is a traveler.  At 1:00PM, I started to see the tea plantation and I was so amazed with the surroundings.  I cannot wait to see the hotel.  Unfortunately, there was traffic all over.  We arrived at the Freesia Bus Terminal in Tanah Rata at 2:00PM.  Before you will reach in Tanah Rata, you will passed by Ringlet.  Ringlet is a small town and crowded. The hotel which I stayed was…more

Standard Post with ImageThe bus will leave at 10:30PM at Golden Mile Tower and it states in the booking information that I need to proceed to Golden Mile Complex first to check-in before departure.  I leave home at 8:45PM to get the ticket and I don't want to wait in line that long.  I reached Nicoll Highway at 9:00PM.  Nicoll Highway is the nearest MRT to Golden Mile Tower.  When you go out to Nicoll Highway, go all the way to Beach Road and do not go straight to the bridge, go down, and do not cross the road.  Walk straight to your…more

A month before my travel – booking plan!

Notes by traveldiary007 on Friday, February 15th, 2013 under Cameron Highlands-A cool-weather place

Standard Post with ImageChinese New Year... this is when Chinese families gather together to a time for a LONG HOLIDAY!  I love this holiday especially when it falls on Sunday and Monday, meaning Tuesday will be holiday in-lieu on Sunday.  So, I had planned earlier where to go and I set my mind to go to Tioman Island together with my girl-friends.  But when I check the ferry, they are closed for monsoon season so I have to change plan.  That is where I booked Cameron but sad to say that my friends don't want a long travel and so they decided to go to…more
