We had to check out at 11am so we had plenty of time to pack in the morning and to get coffee at a cafe nearby. I’m going to miss Penang. For some weird reason, it reminds me most of New York or just other cities like Seattle or LA but with its own little quirks.
For our last meal in Penang, we decided to eat at Borneo Kopitiam and I got the delicious Wan Tun Mee again. I’m sad that I’ll never find Wan Tun Mee that would be this good and cheap ever again.
3 hours later, we arrived to Cameron Highlands and of course it was time for lunch. We ate at a place called Wonderlite and we just ordered different kind of rotis to try.
Roti Kosong (plain) on the left and Roti Telur (egg) on the right.
Roti Boom (condensed milk) was my favorite
The first touristy spot was the Cameron Lavender Garden, which only Jacqueline and I went since my parents and my sister already went through it before we got to Malaysia.
Lavender icecream that tasted a lot like soap/candle since it the flavor was so strong.
The garden was quite small and the influx of tourists from the buses made the whole garden a little cramp. The top floor was kind of tacky with a color castle and characters. Cameron Lavender Gardens is definitely a place you only need to see once.
After another 30 mins or so of driving we finally made it to Cameron Valley. We didn’t get any tea but we did get a picture.
The drive out of Cameron Highlands was horrible. There were so many twist and turns, it’s hard not to feel nauseous especially when it took more than a hour to get back on the highway. The drive back down was pretty interesting. We saw a lot of stray dogs roaming around, which reminds me of Peru. There were also a lot of small shacks and homemade storefronts along the roads where indigenous people sell their goods to visitors.
The car ride back to Kuala Lumpur was rough and took roughly 2 more hours. Our Airbnb was around the Pavillion which meant loads of traffic. We were stuck in traffic for a hour and basically couldn’t get dinner where I wanted because it was too late. We ended up eating at a restaurant that was kinda bleh on the ground floor of the Pavillion.
Being in the car for majority of the day was rough and so tiring that I had a GREAT night sleep.
