Banana Leaf Lunch Before Leaving Cameron Highlands

Before we left Cameron Highlands we had Banana Leaf Rice at a mamak restaurant.

He seemed pleased and amused scrolling through his wedding shots!
the first offering on the leaf: papadum!!

The ritual of putting the whole rigmarole on the LEAF!

With chicken curry

Beryani Rice and mutton
Another rare precious family moment, glad we can gather for lunch!!!

daughter had to have thosai, her comfort food from school days. After a particularly long day at school she would ask me to stop at the mamak for thosai before heading home to nap, dinner, homework and sleep and get up to start another school day.
Walking home, I loved this corner, but since it was Monday, it was empty!

Hmmmm....I was here with the IWAKL International ladies a while back and now I am here again with my family.
Jauntily walking to our car park. a weekend well spent for our son's wedding photo shoot.
But first, must take photos with lovely blooms, we are able to pose any how we please, because there's not a soul around.....except those rich enough not to work.
Like the owner of this car.
So, we left the Highlands and descended back to the hot humid and harried city.

Free and Easy at Cameron Highlands: Tea, Mini Photoshoot, shopping and dining.

The rest of the afternoon after we settled down at Farmer Hut was free and easy and we filled it with activities which are a must-do in Cameron Highlands.
 First we went for tea at Plantation Tea House. 

Hmm yumm...Tea, sardine puff and blueberry cake.
 It was so difficult to get a table as it was full house, and all the seats overlooking the plantation are taken.
Long queue too to get our tea, but it was lovely, sipping cameronian beverage amidst cool surroundings with greenery as far as  eye could see. 

Anytime Tea House.
 After tea was mini photoshoot time....everybody else was also taking photos of the tea plantation.

 So while Dad took the lovebirds, 
 we took selfies of the free birds..hehe 
Young Love
Mellow love, hahaha!
 YTL Cameron Hotel has colourful props for them
And us!!
Next it was shopping time.
I wanted to keep these for myself, but in the end I gave them to Felicia who was ecstatic, she is such a cactus lover!
 The mandatory shopping for fruits and vegetables.
Dinner time! Steamboat of course, the long chimney and charcoal type!
 Precious Family Dinner Time
 Supplemented with dishes like salted egg yolk ferns
 tom yam soup for our steamboat

fish balls fucuk and Japanese tofu
 prawns, chicken, fish and mushrooms with vegetables
