A Day In Fraser's Hill
(Putrajaya at night)
Mommy woke me and daddy up early this morning since daddy suggested to drive up to Fraser's Hill after Uncle Raymond suggested a different route up, via Bentong (Raub) instead of the usual Kuala Kubu Bahru(KKB) route. We traveled 262km (using Google Maps)

We started our journey at 1200noon after having our breakfast at Uncle Choy noodle in Kajang and we arrived at the lower gate Gap just after 1400hrs, but we had to wait for about an hour before we were allowed to drive up due to the current traffic control. It was a torturous drive up from Tranum even it was less than 15km, mommy had motion sickness and by the time we got to the lower gate Gap, mommy looked pale! Luckily we had to wait for about an hour so Mommy could rest a while before another 8km up to Fraser's Hill.
Since we got to Fraser's Hill, it was about 1530hrs, mommy thought it would be a good idea to check out some hotel since it was a school and public holiday and I am sure mommy wasn't keen of taking the journey back downhill so soon. The first hotel we got to was Jelai Highland Resort, which was not very well maintained so we decided to move on since daddy was interested in putting up a night at The Smokehouse if there are going to be any rooms available, which surely not since it was high season!. Then we took a drive to Fraser's Silverpark Resort as well as The Pine Resort before stopping for a horse back ride.
Then daddy suggested not to stay for the night since we had covered most of the attractions in Fraser's already so we headed back to the clock tower to walk around since before driving back home. Just as we stepped out for the car, daddy and mommy immediately got hungry because of the roast chicken and satay at the stall just next to where we parked our car, had some satay and have a look at the new government run hotel which was brand new and reasonably priced before driving downhill.
We took the Kuala Kubu Bahru route back since it would be too stresstful to drive back the same way we came. We stopped over at Hulu Ulu Yam for dinner, which Uncle Vincent has been talking about, initially daddy was so convince that we were at the right restaurant but only after we finished our dinner, daddy realised that we actually went to the wrong restaurant! That was why the food tasted quite bad but the price was quite reasonable only RM34, we had
1) Vinegar Pig's Trotters
2) Thai Style Deep Fried Taufu
3) Fried Egg with Prawns
4) Fried Lettuce
The drive back from Hulu Ulu Yam back to Kajang was very good, we left just after 2100hrs and we arrived home just before 2200hrs, which was not too bad actually. Then at 2330hrs, daddy drove me and mommy out again to Putrajaya hoping to watch Merdeka Day fireworks but sadly there isn't any this year.
Lunch : Fish Ball Noodle @ Uncle Choy
