Fraser Hill in the Spring Time

My first time to Fraser Hill. We decided to to take a hideaway weekend up to the highlands as it was boiling hot down here in KL City. Last minute thingy, some more no hotel booking. Since, we have not explore Fraser Hill we decided to check what's up there.

It took up about 2 hours drive, we exited Rawang and headed towards Kuala Kubu Baru. Pass by the Chenderoh Dam on the way up. They made it very easy now, one way up and one way down. Need not wait for an hour like previously. We stay @ Pine Resort. Very nice and cosy...great for family.It was raining and very cooling up there. TV in the room was limited to TV1, TV2 and Astro. After 10 plus the place was really quite.

We had Devonshire Tea plus scones at the Smokey House after checkin in the hotel. We drove around the place, nothing much. Quite sad the place look run down and not well maintained. We headed back to rest for bit before heading out to look for dinner. We found a nice cafe at Shazan Inn were Kim Lee and Phil had nasi goreng and I had the kids meal seafood platter.

The next morning we decided to get up bright and early to do some hiking. There's actually lots of trails to hike about and if you like bird watching, this is a place to be. So no one could decide on a trail and so I choose Rompin Trail thinking that it was short and easy. It turns outs I was very was steep, slippery and challenging. So no go, we headed down wards to the waterfall area. It's really serene and quite there. Nice walk not as challenging but very relaxing and enjoying. Oh yah almost forgot about our special requested nasi lemak breakfast...yummy :P

After our hike we head back to the town center we we had tea and waited for the newspaper to be brought up by the local bus (11.30am) Check out was at 1pm after which we headed back down towards KL and stop at Sg. Buloh R&R to have Haji Samuri Kajang Satay. Then back home...short trip for the weekend.

The whole trip, eat eat and eat :P that's what malaysian are good for.
