Our first trip- Janda Baik~

  Though we used to meet each other in the office everyday, but we never go for a trip due to some "unidentified" reasons. Instead of waiting for someone to do it or wait for the right time, we decided to do it once for ourselves. To enforce this, I quickly bought the value deal from Groupon so that everyone is committed to it. Don't know why, I just love this lovely place, and I find so many reasons to convince the group to go. hahaha....Finally, here we are, Janda Baik!

10am We depart from our house and went to one of the famous porridge shop at Batu Caves. It's next to the Qiao Ming primary school. But I would recommend you to try Yuan Yang (Cantonese Mee) and its fish porridge. Super sedap!

About 12pm, we reached at Janda Baik, Cheringin Hotel, where I stayed once for spiritual workshop last year. Along the road it reminds me a lot of good memory with mates and the jogging trek. It's definitely a good place for meditation and to regain the soul & energy. I hope I can join the workshop again this Oct. :)

Alright, we had our lunch in the room, BURGER KING! As it's a bit hard to get for nice food so we might as well packed some fast food...Oh yes, not to forget the nice brownies from Nadya! She purposely made us a nice brownies for our trip even though she couldn't make it! How sweet!:)

 Yummy yummy brownies...Look at these 3 ladies....

 Yea, we almost got the plan ready....let's go!

We did all these:
Look at Danny...he tried to fit into kid's bicycle!!! Danny, give up la! wakakaka...

 Go go go for the ride!
Road to our hotel is high and steep. It's easy to ride down and enjoy the cooling winds but it's damn hard to ride it up again! But Ken is superb la...he can do it!
 YY beh tahan already.....after the ride, look at her red face...

Then, we wanted to explore the waterwall in Janda Baik. However, the hotel staff told us that it requires RM50 per head and min of a group of 30 people in order to guide us. So we decided to explore by ourselves, by car.
Heard that it need to drive and walk about 45min in order to get into the waterfall. Instead, we discover the river!
 Sneak and take a picture sin!
 Such a nice group photo, i Like!

 As I love Ee Chia saying, this is why we love our beautiful land....No Lynas ok?
 Besides, we also swim in the hotel....It's so cool that we swim on top of the hill...but the pool water is not so clean could be caused by the rain ...Didn't manage to take the swiming photo...but better not and Juju is too sexy, you'll have scary dreams later...hahaha

Alright, we didn't know that our resort is so close to Bukit Tinggi, it's about 15 min away! Of course we tried out the famous restaurant-风味。I didn't take much photos coz I'm so starving after so many rides and swimming!
This is the fried tou fu and minced pork! nice!
 Again, Malaysian new culture...take photos before we eat.
 Fish is so big, guess it has about 2kg...and a herbal chicken!

What we do at night? Eat, chill and watch the Dark Knight in room! Everyone is so kan jiong watching it and Ken become our story teller to share what happen to Harvey Dent!
12am: Danny wanted to light the KongMing lantern/ sky lantern for long time. And finally we made it here. Everyone wrote their wishes on the lantern and here is mine...World Peace, Be Rich and Healthy Always!
It was after rain and the weather is humid.  I feel it's safety to lighten the sky lantern when looking around the empty place and weather, the risk of burning other people house & forest is 0%.  haha....
 Still waiting for the candle to make its power to fly the lantern...

 Almost there...
 Finally... hope you'll make our dreams come true!!
Today, Pang shared with us that there is another famous shop in Bukit Tinggi. The hear-say about this restaurant is, the owner had a very bad accident few years ago and he no longer can walk. While recovering and doing nothing, he got some ideas for the restaurant. He names all the food from Chinese tales..

This is the shop...Bukit Tinggi BBQ!
 Look at the place, it's so cool that using umbrella as decor on top and the side is using the empty bottles. it's a cozy place where you don't feel hot at all...

 Let me tell you what are the funny and super cool names they used. Look at this dish, namely, Wu Li Dan Dao 乌里单刀. In Cantonese saying is, nothing makes sense. It's a rice mix with lots of veges and soup! Creative and nice meal!
 Deng Deng Deng Deng! This is their signature, BBQ lamp, which costs us RM190! But i tell you, all of them say this is the best in town!
 Guess what is this? Tou Fu with fried egg on top! quite cool leh!
 Ha... another signature! it's肥水不流外人田, direct translate is: good water save in own pot. Seafood like lala, prawns, crab been cooked and steam on top, the water/soup will dip to the bottom. After we finished the top part, the waiter will reserve the bottom part and cook with vege. It become a soup for everyone. That's why it name the best soup leave till the last. And it taste superb! Almost every table order this special dish leh!
 This is fried chili. It's similar like Yong Tao Fu but without the meat.
 Ha...this is another special. 雪山飞狐, "snow mountain flying fox:  hahaha...while we translated it, we also laugh, sure the English people don't understand it...The name come from one of the famous novel by JinYong(金庸). The owner BBQ-ed the fish and it's still keep the freshness and juice. Zheng!
 Soy Sauce BBQ Chicken, very tasty!

Almost 8 dishes we have ordered and it costs us about RM565. Look at the bill. Drawing tells it all. We tried to figure out which dishes costs how much. I think this is the most effective way when placing the orders than writting. You wanna play a guess?

 It's quite a short nice and relax trip for me! Hope we can go more in future!
