Trip in Cameron Highlands is another left out post...hehe...
While I'm reading my book for this weekend camp in KL, so I update my blog because feel like kinda boring when the laptop is on (wasting electricity) and I do nothing on it...haha...

Went up to
Cameron Highlands on 24 May 2009 after sending my sister to Open University Malaysia in Ipoh (went through Ipoh out to Simpang Pulai and up, up to Cameron Highlands...).
Just a few hours journey actually while waiting for my sister to finish her class (8:00a.m. to 2:45p.m.) so my mom said why not we travel up there rather than doing nothing in Ipoh...hehe...

Invited Chew Ching and Beh Meh to join in since they were free and we have not been out together for some time.
Departed from Ipoh at about 8:00a.m. and we spent our time at Cameron Highlands till 2:45p.m. I guess and was rushing back down to Ipoh because my sister finished her class already and was waiting for us...haha...

Don't want to write too much here, so will just upload the photos taken with some description of the places we stopped by...

Morning sunrise on the way to Ipoh (somewhere around Seri Iskandar)

A small vegetable farm
(This one not good, have to pay RM1 per person and nothing much to see there... Next time no more entering this farm...haha...)

Love Fruit Tree

Ee Feng Gu Honey Bee Farm

Cactus Point

Know what my dirty mind think of this??? Hahaha...

Buying strawberries from the stall
(This is the best stall I guess. A lot of people buying from them. Big strawberries only cost RM15 per kg {3 boxes} and smaller one cost RM10 per kg {3 boxes} if I'm not mistaken. Rather than self-pluck which is more expensive and won't get this much.)

Last stop at a self-plucking vegetable farm
(This is the best of all. There were lots of vegetables and other plants in this farm and the 'taukeh soh' also very friendly and gave us a lot of information. She told us about some of the plants that have a very nice smell and some of them
got the smell of CK perfume, hacks, sarsi and much much more. A very nice and cool trip at this farm...hehe...)

Pulling out white radish...

Beet root (which we thought as yam at first, before pulling it out from the ground)

The 'taukeh soh' called this "high heels"...

The Lavender plant...

Now these, the 'taukeh soh' called them "duck and swan"...

Heaven Bird...

Trip in Pahang

Here's another past post.
The trip was from
10-12 May 2009 and actually was to send my brother for registration at Pahang Matriculation, Gambang (his registration was on 11 May 2009).

So we started our journey on Sunday morning (10/5/2009) by sending my sister to Open University Malaysia (OUM) in Ipoh.
Then only we
proceed to Pahang via Batang Kali-Genting Highland-Karak highway-East Coast highway.

Departed from Ipoh at about 8:00 a.m. and reached Kuantan, Pahang around 2:00 p.m.
Searched for hotel to stay one night and the next morning (11/5/2009) send my brother to Pahang Matriculation.

Kuantan River (nearby the hotel we stayed)

After sending my brother, my mom and I got back into Kuantan and then we went along the road by the sea and just stopped at anywhere we like...hehe...
Actually kinda boring and did not know where to go because there were only the two of us.
So we
travelled from Kuantan, Pahang till Kemasik, Terengganu...haha...

After that we went
back to Pahang and stayed at a chalet at Balok Beach (we regretted it because that chalet's services not very good and maybe would be better if we went to Cherating Beach or Teluk Chempedak Beach but never mind, next time will travel to the East Coast again...hehe...)

We stopped by at a few places all the way from Kuantan-Kemasik-Kuantan.

Natural Batik Village at Pahang

Kemasik Beach at Terengganu

Awana Kijal Star Cruise Jetty at Dungun, Terengganu

Perwaja Steel Factory at Kemamam, Terengganu (this one passed by only)

Telaga Simpul at Terengganu
(We were curious by the name, so we went into this place to have a look...haha...and not a very special place I guess. But we noticed something, a lot of people came into this place have meal. My mom and I were wondering why?? Actually we wanted to find out and try but too many people so we went out after taking the picture of the well which we were so curious...hehe...)

Balok Beach at Pahang

On 12/5/2009 at around 7:30 a.m. we checked out from the chalet and went for a breakfast before drove back home to Ayer Tawar.
Some interesting part here, my mom and I decided not to use the highway, so we used only the trunk road of Pahang
Not too bad and actually get to know some of the places situated at which location by using this road.

Then we planned to use the other route and did not use the Genting Highlands route.
From Bentong we went towards Raub and diverted into the road up to Fraser's Hill.
Oh my god...such a long journey going up the hill which took us almost 2 hours I guess because it's about 66km all the way up.
In between we did stopped our car and took some photos at the hill.

Going down was easier and nearer (about 26km if not mistaken) and we were out through Kuala Kubu Baru.
Reached home at about 4:00 p.m. and yeah next time no more using the Fraser's Hill route...hahaha...

Hm...I think it's time for me to update my past posts which I missed out...hehe...
So start off with this KEJORA...
It's an event organized by the Students Representative Council in my uni.

First of all,
KEJORA stands for Kejohanan Olahraga and it was held from 7-8 March 2009.
There were only a few events being held because it was only a 2 days event and it's a competition between our hostel (which were named the Kolej Aminuddin Baki, Kolej Zaba, Kolej Harun Aminurrashid, Kolej Ungku Omar and Unit Kediaman Luar Kampus).

Those events were the long jump, triple jump, high jump, shot putt, javelin throw, discus throw, 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 4x100m and 4x400m.
We, the secretariat were to help out in handling all the events (as referee, time keeper, line judges, judges, runner and the list goes on...)

Well, the champion of the overall event was won by Kolej Ungku Omar.
Then, the best marching group was won by Kolej Aminuddin Baki.

Oh yea, will be included in here the photos of the preparation before the event as well as during and after the event.
