Honeymoon in Cameron Highlands

I never thought that I would ever go to Malaysia. I mean, whenever one thinks of some gorgeous offshore destinations, the names of Egypt, Singapore, Thailand, Australia and Switzerland pop into the mind instantly. Yes, it is true that my roving eyes often strayed over to great deals on Malaysia packages offered here and there. But I was under the impression that this is a destination which is okay-ish type. Good, but not good enough!

However, I apologize to myself for having all these ill-notions about this place. Malaysia is fabulous and if there is one reason I would like to drop by here, it has got to be Cameron Highlands. The good thing is that me and my boyfriend will soon be getting married (hopefully by the middle of this year) and I have already pointed out those honeymoon packages abroad which lead all the way to Cameron Highlands.

They call this place the ‘Little England’. It is a serene and sleepy hill station and is exactly the kind of place I love. In fact, any couple who is on a honeymoon will fall in love with such a place. Its greenery, tranquility and agreeable weather will win your heart any day.

Just to give you the readers a brief idea, Cameron Highlands is nestled in the region of Pahang in western part of Malaysia. It is a nice hill resort where people usually go for a quiet holiday and for mingling with nature.

Malaysia holiday tour packages also give you the chance to peep around. There is the Mossy Forest, the glistening Parit Waterfall and the vantage point of Mount Brinchang. There are some heartening valleys as well. To be frank, this hill station has got sprawling gardens and estates thrown all over it. One can always feel like dancing to their tunes in this part of the world.

If you are interested in butterflies or in insects in general, just hop over to Butterfly Farm where you can watch and photograph an array of insects including some colorful butterflies. This region is also excellent for photography and the pollution-free air can give your lungs a reprieve from the smoke of the metro towns.

All in all, Cameron Highlands is good and if you are looking for honeymoon packages abroad, you can settle down on this destination without a worry.

Five best delicacies to try in Malaysia

I admit that I am not much of a foodie, as opposed to my friend Sneha whose chief motto in life is to attack food. Do when we planned an all-girlie trip to Malaysia (you see, Sneha got hold of a truly pocket-friendly Malaysia holiday package), it was she who was leafing through all the possible food guides she could lay her hand on to.

Kuala Lumpur dishes

But truth be told, it was me who ranted about the Malaysian delicacies before our common friends when we returned back to India. So, without troubling you further with my silly talks, let us plunge straight into my list of five best dishes to try in Malaysia:

Nasi Lemak: It took me some time to get the name right on my tongue. But it hardly took me more than a minute to get it right on my taste buds. This dish, which is more of a concoction of cooked rice and coconut milk, is the most delicious thing you can eat for a heavy lunch. Mind it, its calorie count is really high, but if you are lusting for food, this dish should be right on your platter.

Char Kuey Teow: It is usually found on roadside stalls and is a form of rice noodle. Since I am madly and incorrigibly in love with Chinese cuisine, this dish was born to be devoured by me. Burp, excuse me!

Roti Canai: Roti Canai is actually the Malaysian cousin of our Indian ‘roti’. Though it has its characteristic flavor and is a tad different from what we are served at home, its roots are largely Indian. It is delicious, nevertheless and a staple diet for many locals.

Curry Mee: Sneha is not a big fan of curries and so she skipped this one. Fool she is. But it was good for me since I ordered a second helping after slurping up the first bowl. Submerged in curry soup, this dish is made of noodles and eggs.

Bak Kut The: Basically, it is pork ribs but these guys spice it up and add some aromatic herbs to make it look (and smell) totally irresistible. This is good for a heavy dinner.

Thankfully, most of these dishes are available even at the popular tourist places to visit near Malaysia. From amazing street food to chic fine dining, Kuala Lumpur is heaven for foodies. So, you can have them again and again, as did Sneha (and me).
