Cameron Bharat Tea Plantations and Cameron Valley Tea House

Waking up to fresh cold air, dressing up pretty and wearing a warm smile on my face. Everything was exceptionally beautiful in my eyes that morning.

With flat and empty tummy, we were keen to have an abundance of breakfast delights at the Uncle Chow Kopitiam to kick start our day, but who would have guessed that the coffee shop could be so packed with customers lining up for tables? We switched to Sakura Kopitiam at last, and the waiting time was FOREVER!

Skip the unpleasant breakfast experience. The next destination on our schedule was tea plantations. Yay!!! We settled for Cameron Bharat Tea Plantations since the traffic condition towards and in Brinchang was absolutely terrible.

Ipoh Old Town: Sekeping Kong Heng and Plan B Cafe

Ipoh Old Town is as happening as ever, specially now during public holidays and long weekends. With its ideal location situated in the heart of most major cities and tourist attractions, it would be a good call to stop by to taste some local specialties and to do a little bit of sight-seeing before traveling further up or down the peninsular.

We were heading down south that day, in our case, from Penang to Cameron Highlands for a 3D2N trip. Speaking of Ipoh, we'll be there again tomorrow for dim sum breakfast, feel free to wave and say hi if you happen to bump into me =)

Bali in June: Taman Ayun Royal Temple of Mengwi Empire

Yet another temple visit! Our 4th day in Bali was pretty much about visiting temples. There were three on the schedule: Ulun Danu Beratan Water Temple, Tanah Lot Temple (the most beautiful during sunset) and Taman Ayun Royal Temple which I am now going to take you on a virtual tour.

Bali in June: Ulun Danu Beratan Water Temple and Wild Animal Encounters

The Ulun Danu Beratan Water Temple is about 26.8 kilometres away from Lovina Beach, where our dolphin watching tour took place. After a not-so-appetizing breakfast, I reluctantly dragged my feet into the car and slept like a baby until the chilly air forced me awake. The climate was completely opposite to what we have experienced near the beach, very cold and refreshing.

Entrance fee: Rp 30,000 per person.

Bali in June: Dolphin Watching Tour at Lovina Beach

Having to have to wake up at 2 a.m in the morning was a little ruthless to our bodies that day. We barely rested enough with just a few hours of sleep. I had 3 and a half. Crashed like a pig after washing up and blow drying my hair.

Around 2.30 a.m, our tour guide came to pick us up from Villa Mimpi Manis. Everyone was looking so beat up including the driver (our tour guide), "Kicap" who drove us through two hours of steep and winding mountain roads covered in thick fog. A round of applause to the pro F1 racer and myself for still being alive. It's a celebration! Haha. Tthe drifts could have swallowed us whole, you know.

Okay guys, you'll be surprised by our adventurous ride of the day...

Bali in June: Tegallalang Rice Terrace and Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant

Growing up in a small town on the border of Thailand and Malaysia, it's not uncommon to see a sea of paddy fields on the sides of road in the Rice Bowl State.

When I was briefed about our schedule of visiting Tegalalang Rice Terrace on day 3, the picture that first came into my mind was mountains and mountains of terraced rice fields which I imagined would be spectacular to be looked at.

So after almost an hour drive from Tirta Empul Temple, we eventually reached Tegallalang Village located on the north of Ubud. It was a huge blessing to have a tour guide to drive us around in Bali, honestly speaking. The roads are so narrow and winding that it was exhausting to even just sit in the car doing nothing.

And in the end, we settled for a scenery not so spectacular yet nice enough to click some snaps.
