Cameron Highlands

We wanted to go for a short 3 days 2 nights trip to a place that's cooling, not too expensive and near Singapore (since we only have a weekend to travel).

Genting Highlands? Nah, went so many times already and we dun like casinos! So the next choice would be another Highlands in our neighbouring country, Cameron Highlands, since both of us have never been there.

We took a coach to Cameron Highlands and it was really cold when we arrived. We explored the surroundings of our hotel by foot for a while and realised that it's quite impossible to get around and really toured Cameron Highlands without a car. Hence, we signed up three tours. One is the general day tour that brings you around Cameron and includes a dinner, a sun-rise tour and a tour which brings us to tea plantation.


We followed the tours and visited strawberry farm, vegetables farm, flower farm and tea plantation. It's unavoidable to step on some mud and it's even worse if it rains. At these farms, you will be able to buy strawberries, vegetables, flowers and tea leaves or packet tea. We bought some strawberries and er.. they were quite sour. We also bought many small packets of Boh tea leaves as souvenirs for our friends and families.


There were quite a number of photos opportunity at these farms or tea plantation. Especially the tea plantation, it covers a huge area and it's greeny..

Vegetables farm. It's actually a hydroponics farm?

Vegetables that looks so fresh..

Strawberry farm. You can pay a fee per basket of strawberries and you can go into the farm to pick the strawberries yourselves and bring them back.

After visiting the farms and plantation, it's time for dinner!

Oh, it's steamboat dinner! But..lots of vegetables, and hardly any meat -.-                                         


The next day, we woke up at 430am in order to catch the sunrise. We regretted our decision when we forced ourselves out of the bed. The tour bus brought us to somewhere on the hill and the whole group of us just stand there and waited for the sun rise. Not a fantastic experience as it was cloudy and we couldn't see a clear and beautiful sun rise. Breakfast was served after the sun rise, where we were given each a cup of drink (milo, tea or coffee) and a piece of bread or muffin. Everyone of us just found a spot to stand or walk around while eating the breakfast.


After watching the sun rise, we joined another tour to a tower to catch great views of Cameron Highlands.

We climbed this tower,

There's also a night market at Cameron Highlands that sell cheap clothes and other stuff, and also food.

We saw this at the night market.. honeycomb.. directly lick the honey from it..

Grilled whole chicken, it smelt great! But we didn't buy hahaha..

Fried squid.


What do we think of Cameron Highlands? Hmm.. The tours were not cheap given the quality and places that they brought us. I guess they are able to mark up the tour price is cos' it's touristy there and people like us without a car would be trapped in the hotel if we didn't sign up any tour.

My advise would be it's better that you booked a complete tour with the travel agency in your home country that includes land tours at Cameron Highlands and the transport to and fro Cameron Highlands to avoid booking the land tours only when you are trapped there.

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!


I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.



I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.


$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
