Most people may think low season may not be good time to visit any island resort, guess this is generally true but may not be all true. We chose to visit Koh Lipe during the monsoon season for
- Hotel room rate is so much cheaper
- Not so crowded beaches and restaurants
- It cannot be raining for all the days during monsoon season-Hopefully

It has been at least two years since we last visited Cameron Highlands. People around saying it is no longer cooling like previous due to over development, thus we did not put high hope on getting chilled.
It is indeed not as cold, especially when you were on the street during day time. Somehow, when we reached our room at night, it was getting cold. Wife had to put on sweater to sleep. One thing for sure, Cameron Highlands undergo massive development in recent years, with new hotels and new attractions such as Lavender farms, strawberry farms mushrooming.
This time round, we visited the Sg. Palas Boh plantation as well as Lavender Farm.

After a winding ride downhill from Cameron Highlands, we en route Bidor to get some Petai and biscuits at 品珍 Restaurant. We then continued on trunk road and drove about 40 minutes before reaching 福成 Restaurant at Slim River.
I knew this place thanks to a good buddy of mine Robin and had been patronising this place for years, long before they shifted to the new shop today. The 老板娘 is very friendly and approachable. I surfed through net to find that many people had written much positive comments about this restaurant.
As we just had river prawns at Tanjung Tualang two days ago at 联芳 Restaurant, we had decided to scape them today. Instead, we had ordered Clay Pot Tapah, my long time favourite. With some mandarine orange skin 果皮, ginger and of course the fresh Tapah fish, i can easilly finish two big bowl of rice with this dish alone.

After the morning breakfast, we took a cab to Hangzhou railway station, where we bought our train ticket to Xi Tang, via 嘉善南. It was during this time I felt every single penny worth I spent on my Deuter 55+10. Hangzhou railway station was an old station, there was this part where we had to lug our luggage down staircase, Yes, no escalator. Without it, it was just impossible for me to manage 2 trolley bags (We still brought 1 trolley bag with us).
After about 30 minutes train ride to 嘉善南, we took a cab for RMB 100 to reach Xi Tang 平桥. I knew very well at RMB 100, it was on the high side (Our cab fee from Xi tang back to same train station cost us RMB 70), but at that time, I was more than willing to pay the extra. You just could not imagine the second we stepped out from the train station, the strong wind that greeted us was brutal, it was not something a child could bare. The cab ride took about 30 minutes, about 20 over km according to the cab driver, not that expensive if you think about it.

Always admired those people owning private pool, my dream finally came true…..not quite, but book ourselves a deluxe suite room at grand Lexis with private pool.
I must admit i was quite taken by Port Dickson, this time- mainly because of the Water Front at Port Dickson town, supposed the project was completed recently as everything was clean and well organized, for the lease there are Mc Donald’s and Papa Rich
