Bala’s Chalet Hotel & Restaurant

In Cameron Highlands, Hotels, Recreational Destinations on July 17, 2006 at 10:15 pm

Bala’s Chalet Hotel & Restaurant was definitely not our first choice of accomodation. Going up to Cameron after 6pm at any given day is not a good idea. But we did so cos it’s just too bloddy HOT at sea level Ipoh. No matter what, we’re determined to catch some cool mountain air over the weekend. The idea is to get a truly great stay experience in Cameron without a reservation. Just to see if that is possible. We were shooting for some place that will accomodate our budget of RM100~150 for a night’s stay. Read the rest of this entry »


Nasi Goreng Paprik

In Cameron Highlands, Food on July 11, 2006 at 4:17 pm

It’s quite a bitch to look for Malay food outlets in Cameron Highlands if you’re an occassional tourist there – like me. The only places I know for sure is a foodcourt opposite HSBC bank in Tanah Rata, and another foodcourt next to the Brinchang central market. Since I was in Brinchang, I decided to get my regular dose of nasi paprik / nasi pattaya / tomyam at the market-foodcourt. Ok, ok: I know that ain’t much Malay food but you tell me lah: where got authentic all-Malay food served nowadays in the Malay gerai?? Read the rest of this entry »

Hi CN .. sowieeeee .. It has been very crazy weeks/months for me .. work, family, love life .. sigh .. sometimes i think i fall into the category of abnormal people .. 😦

Anyway .. I just got back from Cameron Highlands .. and yess it is still cool .. literally 😀 Just not as cool as last time .. global warming?? Ask Bush about that! Anyway, on my way back, I stopped for lunch at a food court at Brinchang, it’s the one in front of Hotel Jasmine, right adjacent to Brinchang Central Market .. and i noticed there weren’t any hand-washing basins/sinks .. I wonder how the premise was approved as one of the requirements for setting up food premises is to have adequate hand washing facilities. I have to go into the kitchen to wash my hands and .. hmm ..

I think Majlis Daerah CH should visit this place and do something about it. I mean .. it is clean alright .. but no hand washing sink??? It’s unacceptable, man ..
