Family Trip 2017 @ Cameron Highland, Malaysia (Day 3)

Today is our first full day at Cameron Highland. We woke up at 8.45am, showered and had some bread in the room.

Our first stop is Kea Farm Morning Market which is located near Equitorial Hotel. It is open daily in the morning until early evening. 

Our main agenda is to buy some vegetables, sweetcorn and sweet potato for tonight's steamboat. We also bought some strawberries as it is very cheap. 5 boxes of strawberries for RM 20 only! 

Sweetcorn prices varies between 10-17 sweetcorn for RM 10 ( do note there are different varieties of sweetcorn at the market hence the different in price, so choose the one that u like).  Vegetables' prices differ between stalls. If you would like a mix of vegetable, there are some stalls that sell 7 different type of small packets of vegetables for RM 10.

There are a couple of stalls selling cooked food so we bought some sweet potatoes ball , deep fried oyster mushroom, steam sweetcorn and strawberries dipped chocolate. Part of our breakfast is settled at the market ....

Next stop will be strawberries picking experience. Mei and her hubby, Bao picked strawberries before when they visited Cameron Highland for their honeymoon. As for the rest of us, it is our first time.

There are many strawberries farm around Cameron Highland and we went to Kok Lim Strawberries Farm. 

We paid RM 120 for 8 adults to enter (kids free) and includes 4 boxes of 500g strawberries which we can pick on our own. 

The farm is huge but road are quite narrow and steep. We had to look out for the kids as we are worried they will fall down. Definitely not children friendly and no stroller inside. 

(If you have young children, would suggest to pick strawberries at Lavender Garden. It is much safer and the strawberries are closer to ground, making it easier for young children to pick, plus the price is cheaper, RM 10 for 200g of strawberries)

All are famished after picking strawberries and climbing up and down the farm....Hence, we headed to Capitale Coffee for lunch plus toilet break...
Playing while the adults figuring out what to eat...
Which cake do you want?

Loving his expression
I love fries...
Most of the food we ordered are not bad (Burger, fish and chips, pizza and pasta)... the only misses is the Cordon Blue. 

Their coffee is quite good and we enjoyed the coffee a lot. Cakes are just so so... overall, food is quite good and price is reasonable. However, the food is served rather slow so be prepared to wait for a bit for your food.

We then went back to the hotel for the kids to nap. While they nap, hubby and me went for a slow jog/walk around the hotel. 

After a jog, we helped to prepare the vegetables for tonight's steamboat. 

When Jaclyn woke up around 6pm, I bring her over to Shasta Suite to look for grandma and have some porridge. On our way , we went to the strawberries farm at the hotel ...

Very nicely grown...
