In July during our company’s trip, we made a short stop at Lost World of Tambun via the Ipoh,Sg. Siput toll, if you are taking the NKVE expressway, before we headed for the cool mountains in the later afternoon. Akin to Sunway Lagoon Theme park, Selangor, we were lost for words. Besides screaming our heads off with the rides, the indoor free train gave us a good view of the parks and its surroundings.
With the newly completed Simpang Pulai exit where the road was less winding, it took us only another two hours to reach our hotel cum apartment in Brinchang. The rain had just stopped, casting a thick mist over the mountains and a night market business in full swing. We couldnt wait to don our sweaters and jackets and had a great time bargaining for farm produce and eating delcious finger-licking food.
The next day, besides the cactus farm, we visited morning market and the bee farm and came away with some really good, pure honey. Take a tablespoon of pure honey, add some warm water and squeeze in some lime juice. It’s my mother’s traditional cure for sore throat. It works wonders. Heading down home, we stopped at Tanah Rata, sipping hot tea with scones and watched some of our colleagues walked the tea trail .
