My partner suggest for a morning trek activity to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve at Singapore on last weekend that never been before. Surprised me with how well kept it is and the well guided maps compares to those nature reserve in Malaysia, but i find it is too crowded, visit on weekday migght be more relaxing and will be able to enjoy more on the nature.
“Bukit Timah, which literally means “tin hill” in Malay, was already identified on the 1828 map by Frankin and Jackson as Bukit Timah. The hill was depicted on the map towards the northwest as two hills at the eastern source of the Kranji River.”

Went to Gunung Irau for the second time, instead of a day trip, we done a 3 days 2 nights trip in the weekend. Day one route from Bidor (品珍酒楼 which famous of Duck Noodle and Chicken Biscuit)-> Simpang Pulai -> Lavender Farm -> Time Tunnel -> Cameron Night Market (on late afternoon) -> Cameron Market -> Desa Anthurium (rental place to stay).
The Cameron Lavender farm at Tringkap, worth to stop by and takes do some photo shoot if you likes flowers. Entrance fees for adult is RM 5 per person.
Time Tunnel located along the main road between Brinchang town (1.5km) and Kea Farm (2km). It lets you “take a peek into the past of Cameron Highlands through photographs. This is a “must visit” if you want to learn about the history behind Cameron Highlands. A lot of the photos depicting the past are from personal collections of the locals who’s been here since the pre-war days.”
Mossy forest that is very nice for photo shoot, but the environment will be slight dark because those trees blocked the sunlight, therefore, higher ISO and faster lens needed to get decent shots.
The Lord of the Rings alike scene. Weather is good on the day before without rain, muddiness for the path is lower compares to last visit that rains for 60% of the hike.
Large hole within bottom part of the big tree, good enough for one or two person stay in it to hide from rain.
Secret garden with a room-alike environment with hundreds of branches cover on top.
Pitcher plants can be spotted all the way, especially near to the peak of Gunung Irau.
