Cameron Highlands – OK Tuck & Strawberry Park ResortJune 25, 2009 | 5,921 views
For a comforting meal to warm the tummy, and appease that hunger pang. Don’t you realise one gets hungry REAL quick at higher altitude?
Beer Pork Ribs, Belacan Asparagus, Stir-Fried Mixed Mushrooms, and Crispy Roasted Chicken (Kam Heong Chicken)
From Simpang Pulai way, you’ll reach the towns of Tringkap, then Brinchang. Since for the 2 previous visits have been T Cafe all the way, we decided to stop at Brinchang before reaching Tanah Rata for lunch.
Little Wok Beancurd with Mixed Vegetables
We ordered 5 dishes to be shared amongst 3 of us. A little gluttony at work, but what the heck. We’re not keeping our fingers crossed in anticipation of GREAT hotel food anyway. (Which, surprisingly, made me ate my words, as the food at our hotel was beyond our expectation).

Strawberry Park Resort @ Cameron Highlands – Equipped with an indoor pool, and comfortable rooms with cool, crisp air
To imagine a hearty breakfast overlooking the lush greeneries, with cool/fresh air …. Bliss?
The Sweets to complete the Experience
On the second night, we were treated to a feast of BBQ meats (satay, prawns on skewers, otak-otak) pasta cooked on-the-spot, grilled cuts of lamb/beef/chicken, etc. However, the BBQ dinner paled in comparison to the usual offerings, as the meats were not cooked to perfection, with some raw parts (oozing blood), while some overcooked. The pasta (fettucine or spaghetti, cooked with either tomato paste or creamy carbonara) was forgettable as well. Stick to their cooked items, I’d reckon.
The Flora & The Fauna
A strange phenomenon happened on the second evening though, when almost the entire Cameron Highlands was engulfed in darkness no thanks to a power trip. But a blackout atop the hills does not sound so bad, as we embraced the non-existence of technologies anyway. With such chilly weather (it rained on the second day), I was tempted to off all the lights and electrical equipments and declared Earth Hour there and then!
But of course, without the Hot Shower, I retracted my thoughts. 🙂
