Mission Accomplished : Reached the cottage featured in ' The Journey' ( 一路有你)

Thursday, June 05, 2014

Oh no, I promised myself to blog about Cameron Highland trip in May but failed to do so in the end. The month of May was an amazing one which full of excitements! ( which hectic physically at the same time )

I have a course mate from Cameron Highland. The first time we met and my eyes were seriously blinked up when she said that she is from Cameron Highland.Hey, it sounds cool! And during my semester break, I got permission from parents to visit her with my friend,Wan Ying ( while explore more at Cameron Highland)

What does it come to your mind when you think of 'Cameron Highland' ?
Cold breeze? Tea farm? Strawberries? Steamboat?
There are the musts when you visit Cameron Highland but now, ever since the movie 'The Journey' (一路有你)filmed in theater, there is one more highlight featured at there! Yes, the cottage where it is全叔's house in the movie.

We went there for 3D2N, from 17th March till 19th.
I was very happy to meet the owner of the cottage featured in 'The Journey' (一路有你) and we got to know more about the stories behind, definitely an exclusive one!
Wan Ying overnight at my house the day before we departed.

How could we miss to snap some photos as we were quite excited on that evening?

Then, we hopped on bus at 8.30am the next day and we reached Cameron Highland at nearly 1.30pm.
My friend, Shrey lives at Tringkap


We came from Simpang Pulai. You can refer from the simple map of Cameron Highland as above. Tringkap is located centre of all the places.

Wan Ying and I feel so much excited that we got the cold breath once we got down from the bus, it was just simply cool!! And there goes our little discovery of Cameron Highland.
The first thing we did was filling our tummy full.

I was simply satisfied to get 炒河粉 aka 滑旦河. Imagine it isserved warm in your mouth while you
are in the cool weather place. Simply heaven!
It cost me RM 6 for this. Usually, the price of food in highland and in southern region of Malaysia are higher compared to North M'sia, like in Penang.

Oh ya, we stayed at Shrey's house,  save cost for hotel!
After putting our luggage, we followed her dad to farm.
I considered the journey to the farm as a bumpy one! Yes, seriously bumpy! That's why normal vehicle is not able to reach there, only tractor.

Go green now!













So close yet so far...



Curious, seeing the little buds of the leaves.




How dare you go against gravity? LOL



It was a new and good experience for me as I never been to farm. I felt quite refreshing to see everything in green and enjoy the cool breath at the same time!


And we would never forget to take photo together, accompanied by the tractor! LOL



We backed to Shrey's house at around 4.30pm and we got some food as tea break. We went to night market at Kampung Raja before heading for steamboat dinner at Jin Steamboat , located at Kea Farm.




I Love You..I Miss You..随便!

We three enjoyed our steamboat till late. It cost us RM 3O something if I'm not mistaken.
Just a common meal to eat at Cameron Highland, at least you don't treat your tummy poorly.

Okay, the next morning was another day to explore more!
We started our day with breakfast and then we visited Cameron Lavender Garden, which Shrey worked part time after she has done her STPM.


All thanks to Shrey, we entered the garden with children passes.
The person in charged was actually allowing us to enter without any passed but somehow we understand the rules and regulations, so she charges us rm3 for Wan Ying and I.


I really can't believe that the flowers are real one, it's simple eye-catching at the entrance site.


I turned into a damn cheered one,immediately! Simply amazed with the plants..




And I think I dressed correctly as the theme of the garden is purple.



Photo session!









Married couples even put their photos which they took photos here. Sweet and lovely but..



We came to disturb for a while LMAO





This indeed brought my mind to Hokkaido, it just full of strong sense of Hokkaido where the plant all are colourful and you wouldn't believe that they are real ones.


我没有放弃治疗啊。。。


I thought I can only see it on TV but again, I was surprised to see this big big pumpkin, how cool it would be if they build a small door to let visitors enter haha


Scenery view from uphill and I don't why I feel like I'm at Taiwan while standing there






I always got surprised in the garden! This time, let me be a little girl taking a swing..


European inspired building, which is the office actually.




Mushroom hat ladies!




I got myself two packets of freshly picked strawberries later evening, which Shrey's ex colleague purposely picked in that afternoon, much appreciated!


RM 10 each! It's more than worth of the value, I am not the fever fan of strawberries yet my sister is. These two boxes didn't disappoint her in fact!


They even provide self-picking service at RM 10 per 500gm


And flowers are free to picked at RM 2 each.


This girl looks so much cheered here!




Last stop of the garden, the souvenir shop.



That's why I said I dressed perfectly for this visit , everything in purple!


I'd just done Henna ( Indian's arts of painting ), so not to forget to pose like this haha
( was actually intended to block Wan Ying to take solo photo)


Miss Corn! Kawaii..




You will definitely see this whenever you pass through Kampung Raja to Brinchang and further.




Afraid of getting lost in the garden?
No worries, this illustration is the best guide for you.


Posed like tourist!
We'd finished visiting the garden and then we headed to Kea Farm...

DENG DENG!!




As of March 17, the film had raked in a total of RM17.16 million.
The cottage featured in the movie ' The Journey' is at Kea Farm. Thanks God that we asked the people around and she brought us to the place and so lucky that we met the owner of the cottage on the way!


TA-DA! Spot the cottage behind? Yes, it is the one featured!



Uncle didn't want to reveal his name, perhaps to keep low profile since he is considered as famous people in Cameron Highland huh..

Uncle told me that the production crews had been seeing him several times to deal with him. He rejected at first yet he was okay after persuaded by his son.
The director, Chiu 导 told uncle that, the previous films were not getting good response as expected. So, this time, he wanted to do something bigger in productions.Then, he chose this cottage as the house in the movie.
Besides, uncle was told to leave the cottage, meaning keeping everything in static for shooting purpose. uncle has actually another house nearby.
They took one week in shooting at the cottage and uncle was well paid for lending his cottage too.


Still remember this? Yeah, the cottage!


Ah-Bee wannabes?


The store room downstairs, the place where Ben sleeps.

After visiting the cottage, we walked to the temple,福来宫 where the wedding celebrations is held in the movie.It's just a short road to reach there, 2 minutes will do!


Back look to the cottage on the way to the temple.


It's my first time to see Dandelion,蒲公英! The buds flies when I blow it..woohooo..another fun!


Where Ben welcomes guests..


And this is it!

So,we left Kea Farm with laughter and full of satisfaction.
It was 2.30pm and we didn't stop from continue exploring.
We moved to Boh Tea Farm this time.


Finally we reached after nearly 10 minutes of journey to Boh tea farm.


Tourist-pose, again.


We got tea break there. I got myself a slice of strawberry cheese cake and a cup of  hot green tea. I don't really get into tea actually except green tea.









Thanks for the foreigner visitor who volunteered to take photos of 3 of us.






Crazy and innocent photo shooting will not ever break or stop with me LOL but yeah, I enjoyed within.


I bet that it will also be a breath-taking to you when you really visit there. The tea farm is simply huge and wide, your mood will turned very good at the same time!














Let me chant some, 高。。山。。青。。


We ended our visit to Boh tea farm at nearly 5pm and then we went to Brinchang to buy the bus tickets back and dropped by souvenir shops.

I was so much grateful that Shrey's family held BBQ for us as dinner. It's quite relaxing to get your food cooked while you are in the cool temperature..( yeah, I keep mentioning about ' cool temperature')

I even told Shrey that I want to married a man from Cameron Highland so that I can always back here, haha, what a lame joke but I will never forget to pay visit back to Cameron Highland.

We took bus backed to Penang at 8 the next morning and we reached home safely at noon.

I am very contented upon this trip. I achieved what I planned before heading to Cameron Highland. To reach the cottage was in my plan yet to meet the owner of the cottage, and got some exclusive updates from him were even awesome, just out of my expectation!
I really put down everything aside and enjoyed myself there in this trip. and not to forget, I'd got more closer with my friends too.
It widened my vision and my traveling experience, too.
Looking forward to my next trip with my friends, Langkawi, perhaps?
