My Favourite Holiday Resort

The long winding narrow road made me felt so sick.Terribly sick! I really hated the journey up the mountain. Fortunately, my dad enjoyed driving.

Yet the moment my dad announced “We have arrived!”, I changed my opinion. I fell in love with Cameron Highland's breathtaking view and temperate climate.

A visit to the strawberry park was an unforgettable one. My mum bought a packet of strawberries sprinkled with sugar. Being skeptikal, my dad refused to eat them. He said he preferred to have them without sugar.So, he bought two packets of strawberries and gobbled them all. Mum warned dad “ Your tongue will surely get sore!”

Half an hour later,while mum was immersed in the sweet scents of roses grown proudly on the hilly areas of Brinchang, dad secretly asked for some sweets from my little brother.

Another spot I enjoyed visiting was the tea plantation. It was fascinating to witness the workers plucking the tea leaves at such a fast speed. I felt so small when I stood among the tea trees.

The stay at Merlin Hotel was great.The room was large and comfortable.What I like most was the view fom the balcony. I could see the large golf field framed by the natural landscape of tall trees and small thick tropical ferns.On top of that,the rental was reasonable and affordable.

Mum took the opportunity to do facial and went for a spa massage at the beauty salon. Meanwhile dad tried to get some naps. My brother made some cute poses while I took charge as the camera girl.

On the way home down the highland,mum made dad stopped at a few places. The boot of the car was filled with vegetables,strawberries,oranges and lots of roses. When questioned on her lavish spending, she answered “ They are all for your mum,aunties and sisters”

If mum loves Cameron Highland so much, I love it even more. One day, I will definitely go there again.Cameron Highland is indeed my favourite holiday resort.
