In the evening, we went to the pasar malam in Brinchang. I've always loved walking in that pasar malam. Unfortunately, it started to rain shortly after we got there. We still continued our shopping holding our umbrellas tho! By that time, Elyssa was exhausted and fell fast asleep on her daddy's shoulder. We bought dinner from the stalls then went back to the apartment to eat.
Had a leisurely breakfast in the apartment.
Had lunch in Tanah Rata and met up with my bro, SIL, Justin + maid.
During lunch, we had our famous looong discussions on what to do after that. Rest? Bee Farm? Strawberry Farm? Tea Plantation? Drink Tea? bla bla bla.....
In the end, we decided to split up - my father followed my sis back to the apartment to rest, my mum followed my bro to the strawberry & bee farm and hubby, Elyssa and I went to have tea.
We went to Bala's Tea House to have some scones and tea. Stayed there before when I was 6 months pregnant and we had nice memories of that place. However, this time the experience was just awful. The staff were so rude and treated us like "second-class" customers. Aaargh.... not going back there again.
Not satisfied with our afternoon tea, we went to YTL's Cameron Highlands Resort. It was just so much better. The ambiance, the friendly staff etc. Not cheap - the high tea set was RM55++ per person but well worth it.

At night, we had a nice steamboat dinner (celebrated my sis's birthday as well) followed by wine and birthday cake in the apartment.
Breakfast in the apartment then another one of our long discussions. By the time we left the apartment, it started raining again. In the end, we all went to the nearby temple, then all went to the bee farm then all had lunch at Ringlet before we went our separate ways again.
Overall, it was a nice holiday. Although we have our weekly "family makan", it has been 2 years since we went on a holiday together. Always nice to spend more time with family members :)
