Cameron Highland – GPS – Trip profiles

My trip was recorded using GPSr (Holux 236B) placed at the car’s dash board, and connected to PDA (HP 4700) via blue tooth. The PDA was continuously charge with USB car charger. It always picked up 6-8 satellites reception. With Garmin Que & GPSProxy 2.2a software installed in my PDA, tracklogs of 1 second interval was recorded.

So, as you can see from the screen captured of the Track Properties below, my tracks start at 7:10am on 17/12/06 (sunday). My home altitude is at 142 meters above sea level.

I choose the shortest route, ie via Frazer Hill Gap – Kuala Kubu Baru – Kerling – Kalumpang and enter the North-South High Way at Tanjung Malim.

“Jalan ular kena palu”: – by taking this route, we have to negotiate numerous sharp bends. Before long my daughter and sons taking turn asking me to stop – to vomit. My other half grumbling – “ngapa tak bawa ubat muntah?”. I forget to bring tablet stemetil, anti emetic to stop motion sickness. What a poor forgetful doc!. The road become straight by the time we reach Kuala Kubu Baru. Screen captured below shows the place Sir Henry Gurney, British High Commissioner in Malaya, is assassinated on Gap road to Fraser’s Hill by Siew Ma and the members of the Communist Party of Malaya – 6th October 1951.

After a stoped over at Tapah R & R for refreshment and refueling, we took the easiest route to Cameron Highland through Simpang Pulai. Arrived at Strawberry Park 12:55pm, still to early for check in.

So, we proceed to explore the place, took some photo and went to the stalls and farm at the junction of Strawberry Park access road. The farm called Kajimanis Strawberry Farm, where we bought some strawberries. You can’t pick the fruit yourself at that farm. Also bought a few T-shirts with strawberry and Cameron logo/pictures from an Indian stall.

A Few Words About Roses

Types of Roses

Make any landscape design stand out with the most colorful of rose types. Floribunda roses are bushy shrubs and produce flower clusters of three to 15

Hybrid Tea
One of the most popular rose types, hybrid teas are upright bushes that generally produce one flower per stem. Blooms have a high-center point. Many varieties reveal a beautiful fragrance.

A grandiflora is a cross between a floribunda and a hybrid tea. This rose grows up to six feet tall and produces classic hybrid tea flower clusters.

Shrub & Landscape
Coming in all shapes and sizes, shrub and landscape roses work well in any landscape. Landscape roses grow close to the ground, like ground cover, and have a very spreading habit.

Climbing roses help dress up any garden, usually growing on a trellis or a fence. These roses have long, arching canes with numerous flowers that can cover walls, pillars or any other type of supporting structure.

Miniature roses are the smallest of rose plants, growing anywhere from six inches to two feet tall. This rose type is hardy, flowers continuously and is perfect for container gardening.

Tree Roses
Tree roses are made up of a hardy root stock grafted to a long stem that is, in turn, grafted to a rose bush at the top of the stem. The tree rose is a lovely addition to the garden, but extra care is needed to insure its survival over winter.
