Day 3.. ( Kok Lim Strawberry Farm - The Galleria Time Tunnel Gallery - Butterfly Farm - Brinchang Market )
We bangun lambat this day...lepas solat subuh...then tido balik sampai pukul 10am as if it was had for us to leave this place..
Today is our last day here...so, bnyk tempat nak singgah sebenarnye. Nak pegi beli sayur2 n strawbery untuk Ayah and Ummi pulak.
Lepas tu nk singgah rumah sepupu Mak nearby the Taman Sedia where the place that we stay. Alang2 dah sampai sana..Mak suruh kami ziarah rumah sedara mara. Lagipon, lepas kawen memang x pernah jumpa Pakcik Aznun tu lagi.
After packing...we off to breakfast. We eat at food court nearby..at that time, they already serve nasi and lauk2 untuk mkn tgh hari. He he he.. so, we having our brunch there. Sedap jugak..ada ulam2 yg bnyk disamping fresh salad yg beranika jenis. Seronok betul tinggal kat Cameron ni..kalau dapat beli tanah kat sini kan best. Mesti kulit muka I boleh jadi licin kan sbb selalu mkn fresh salad, fresh vege n buah2, mandi air bunga & hirup udara segar hari2. Perghh... mimpi la kan..
Lepas mkn we balik ke our chalet untuk amik barang2. At first we plan nk self plucking the strawbery from Cik Nah's farm..tp they all pulak da bersiap2 nk balik kg. So, x jadi la..
We self plucking at Kok Lim Strawberry Farm as it was along the way back at main trunk road between Kea Farm and Brinchang.
It shares the same building with The Galleria Time Tunnel Gallery. The entrance fees is RM5 per adult if I'm not mistaken. It has a simple layout stretching from the entrance to one of the building. The galleria has collected as much antiques and paraphernalia as they could find related to Cameron Highlands stretching way back to the early beginnings. However, we both are not entering this gallery even I have thought in mind that it was an interesting place to go tho..tp we sempat la explore sikit kat luar tu..ada la barang2 antik..and also the interesting old photographs of Cameron Highlands depicting Tanah Rata, Brinchang and several other places in the early days.
**If you want to learn a little more about history and have a nostalgic moment with the old knick-knacks and old photographs about Cameron Highlands, then do visit it. **
While waiting for the self plucking guider come back from his lunch time..we lepak at the suvernir shop nearby. Sambil duduk rehat2 kat the cafe I ternampak the Cameron Highland Photo Contest.

Panjat..jgn x panjat..En.Suami Enjoying himself plucking the strawberies.Okey....after bergembira ceria memetik buah strawbery..we sempat beli sayur2 sket before go the the next checkpoint.
Then, we ahead to butterfly farm. Yg ni pon along the way balik jugak..Entrence fees is RM5 per adult. Beside the butterfly...there an area where they place many of the exotic animal ataupon boleh dikatakan binatang/serangga hutan..Ade mcm2 jenis ular, labah2, scorpians, ulat gonggok yg sangat besar..and many more.
butterfly..and the size is big. Selalu nampak 2-3 ekor j...tp yg ni dalam satu bilik ada lebih kurang beratus2 ekor..maybe nk mencecah ribu2 kot. Eee....geli. Sekejap saja...saya sudah mau keluar. Hohoho..
Melihat binatang2 exotic and serangga hutan itu pon saya tidak berapa gemar. En.suami j yg mcm enjoy sket jumpa binatang2 tu sume. Apepon...landscape butterfly farm ni ok la jugak. Mcm tmpt2 lain judak..ada bunga2 n pokok2 cactus yg bnyk. But there are still some area where they are still in progress for upgrading the landscape i think. Apepon..we still enjoy it where it is the last point before we went off to the low land.
As an overall, we are very happy to end the year 2009 by the memorizing vacation like this.
The fresh weather and joyful there freshened up our mind and brush up all the hard things happen in our working and daily life, for us to have a great start for new year 2010.
May this coming year ahead bring us more blessing from Allah for the happiness, lotsa loves and prosperities in our life. Aminn..
