My missus, daughter and I certainly enjoyed our trip to the Cameron Highlands tremendously, thanks to my very dear friend, Mandy, who went through the trouble of picking us up in Penang and taking us all the way there and back. We certainly appreciate that so very much, Mandy. You’re truly a gem!

For your information, this is the last post on Cameron – next stop…Bukit Tambun!
