A getaway to inhale some freshness of the air and enjoy the little chilly at the highlands with my loved ones.
The Cameron Highlands is one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations. The size of Singapore, it occupies an area of 712 square kilometres. To the north, its boundary touches that of Kelantan; to the west, it shares part of its border with Perak. Discovered by Sir William Cameron in 1885, the outpost consists of three districts, namely Ringlet, Tanah Rata and Ulu Telom.
The Mossy Forest
A natural environment that grows only at the highest elevations of Cameron Highlands and other mountain ranges across Malaysia. At such heights, low-level clouds in the sky driven by winds, blanket the forests with constant mist and moisture-creating an ideal biotope for moss, ferns, lichen and orchids. This moist tropical evergreen forest is also a rich repository for a varied set of montane creatures, encompassing insects, snakes, frogs, birds and mammals unique to this chilly atmosphere. We explored the mossy forest through a boardwalk 2km before the peak of Gunung Brinchang, beginning from a clearing along the main road.
Arise and come away
Song of Solomon 2:11-13 (ESV) “for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree ripens its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.”
Sprout and Yield
Genesis 1:11-12 (ESV) And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. …And God saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:29 (ESV) And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.”
From the Rising to the Setting
Psalm 113:2-4 (ESV) “Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised! The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens!”
