Cameron Highlands - Equatorial Apartment

At about 3:30pm, we headed to the apartment to check-in. Quite disappointed though because the apartment is quite run down. :(

The entrance

Mini fridge

Living Hall


View from the balcony

We took the master bedroom with a king size bed

The bathroom.
Had to wait at least 30 minutes for hot water after switching on the heater.
Very very slow and water will turn cold halfway bathing. :(

Second room with a queen size bed
Our friend here spotted quite a lot of dust on the pillows, urgh!

Third room with two single beds

 Everyone took a nap and rested in the apartment.
Then, at about 7pm, we went out to look for food for dinner.

This restaurant is just walking distance away from the apartment, BUT.....
the staffs there are VERY VERY BUSY I GUESS, because we waited and waited but no one came to take order!!
Not only us actually, other tables facing same problems too.

Then, we headed down to Brinchang for steamboat.
( Took us 2 hours from Equatorial to Brinchang!! Normally only 15 minutes )
Jammed like mad!!!

Steamboat using charcoal fire.
First time seeing this :)

After dinner, went jalan-jalan at the night market and bought a few fridge magnets and socks, hehe.
( Feet starting to feel cold )
