Good food, adorable animals, and a vast, endless stretch of encircling greenery – What more can a nature enthusiast ask for?

It must have been about a year ago when I visited Bukit Tinggi, one of the closest getaways for those living in the city. The trip also marked my third time being there.

One can easily relive the stately French experience here at Colmar Tropicale, Malaysia's very own French-themed village.

A brief drive to the upper part of the highland will lead you to the Zen-inspired Japanese Village. The trick to visiting the attractions in Bukit Tinggi is to take things slow. Take your time and immerse yourself in the tranquil and placid surrounding and let the unruffled ambiance help you achieve the much needed alleviation after a long week at work. Nature is always the best healer. Regardless of the problem, immersing yourself in the lush creation of nature will always give you the solace you seek.

Literally "letting my hair down" at the picturesque Japanese Village

Crazily delicious calzone that I never fail to eat each year. Sadly, the serving portion has been steadily reducing since the first time I was there.

And after lunch, it was stress-relieving/affection-sharing session at the rabbit farm!

 :D :D :D :D :D

Even the swans are extra photogenic here.
