Strawberries, tiger drinks, and sticking your thumb out gets you pretty far.

The Wandering Nerd January 21st, 2008

After KL we moved up to the Cameron Highlands. It was refreshing to go from 93 degree weather to 66 at night weather. It was still 78 during the day though, so I suffered through yet again. We also found this great ginger liquor that goes down a treat with sprite. It reminds me of Pimm’s and lemonade. To a point we even chopped up some strawberries - which makes it convenient that the highlands has so many strawberry farms - and dumped them in.

The highlands themselves are lovely, strange to find that cool - as in temperature - environment smack in the middle of a jungle. Their ‘trails’ generally seem to be paved paths through the woodland, leading to what they call waterfalls. I wasn’t summarily impressed.

We hit up one of the strawberry farms and gorged ourselves on all sorts of strawberry treats, ice cream, tarts, muffins, swiss rolls, and of course, fresh strawberries. After a busy day of exploring the surrounding countryside we hitchhiked back to the main town and enjoyed a good night of cards, camradarie and pleasant beverages. The next morning left me a big tuckered and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 hour ride up to Penang. As you can tell.

Cameron Highlands ladies and germs:


well, maybe there’s a god above
but all i’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
