Christmas 2009 at Cameron Highlands

Christmas 2009 was spent up in Cameron Highlands. On the morning of December 25, we traveled in three cars to make the trip. We stayed at the Equatorial Cameron Highlands once again but due to the size of our group, we booked a three-room apartment.

Everything was good except for the condition of the apartment--the sofa (if you could even call it a sofa) was broken, the bed had strands of hair on it, the balcony was so small we can't do our steamboat magic there unlike in our previous trip during Mother's Day--but having said all of that, we had a wonderful time together. That, to me, is the most important of all. *GRIN*

I did not take many photos during the trip because I was feeling unwell but instead, Daryl Chang (my brother's friend who uses Canon) and KC (Cat's boyfriend who played with my Nikon) did most of the shutterbug activity. Here's what I did take during the trip.

Most of the photos here were taken at the Tea & Scones Tea Shop on the way up to Brinchang.A family having a photo session in the tea plantation. I was up at there at the tea shop and zoomed in to this family who were having fun.
Our yummy dessert. It's really nice to enjoy tea in the cool weather.

And down we go to the plantation and here are two "spies" poking out of the tea leaves

Last but not least, the steamboat cookout. It's too bad that we can't do it outside so we improvised and did it inside. It was pretty fun! All of us had to eat on the floor.
The smell from the grill was heavenly...
