Malaysia Drive-away (Day 1 of 4)

Thursday night 11pm, 7 June 2012, we started our journey up north.  After clearing immigrations, we stopped at Tamen Sentosa for supper before our long journey to Cameron Highlands.  Along the way, we had several stops for toilet break and rest and arrived at the town of Ringlet in the morning for breakfast.

Not much choice for food at Ringlet, only 1 coffee shop for wanton noodles.  However, we were lucky today to get a roasted duck from a vendor selling from his mobile van stall.  After breakfast, we proceeded to Tanah Rata and the rest of the photos will tell the story.
