Relax with the kids at Cameron Highlands

Our initial plan of a weekend at Genting Highlands turned out to be a relaxing 2day/1night trip to Cameron Highlands, much to the disappointment of the kids. They had yearned to have a thrill-filled day at Genting but were let down when Mom couldn't book a hotel at the highlands packed with holidaymakers during the school holidays cum Hari Raya and National Day break.

Mom and Daddy couldn't wait to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to chill out at the green highlands.  Mom prefers the green and serenity of Cameron to the noisy and packed Genting. 

The kids posed for the camera after a short break of scones and tea (for Mom and Daddy).

 Our first stop at the Bharat Tea House before we reached Ringlet.

As though stung by shutter bugs, Wyng didn't tire of posing with flowers and greens for Mom's album. He willingly and obligingly smiled and posed for Mom whenever strikingly coloured and unusual-looking plants caught Mom's sight.

Ouch! Those spikes really prick.

Mom: Stop pulling those dangling plants!
Wyng:  I didn't. They are pulling me!

At Cameron, there's nothing much to do except to keep those shutters snapping and look at rows and rows of flora. This is definitely a more conducive place to unwind than the annoying din at the Genting theme parks. Perhaps, age is catching up for Mom.
