Subject: DO NOT VISIT CAMERON HIGHLANDS TANAH RATA! Date: Mon, 26 Nov 2007 17:41:17 +0800
Dear friends, i'm writing this based on my recent visit to Cameron Highlands with my sister, sister in law , brother and my families. There were 4 group of us. We have stayed at cameron TANAH RATA for 2 days already but haven't walk around tanah rata town ( we usually go to Brinchang ) But on the third day ( our last stay ) i decided to walk around and have breakfast there. We walk along the shops and finally decided to settle down at an indian restaurant called D' CHENNAI CURRY HOUSE'.
There were 20 of us. 10 adults ( 4 males, 4 females and 2 maids ) and 9 children and a baby. We started ordering and things are ok at first but while eating i was wondering besides us there was only one occupied table ( why so little?? ) And surely, because the food was not so good!
Then my 3 year old son wanted to go to toilet, and so my brother took him in the restaurant to look for toilet ( we were sitting outside in front of the restaurant because there were so many of us the worker place tables for us to sit outside ) Then when my brother came out from the toilet with my son , i heard the owner of the restaurant nagging my brother. We asked whats wrong and my brother said the owner was unhappy because my son didn't close the toilet door. And i heard my brother answer him ' just a small kid what! theres no need to close the toilet door ma' . But the owner ( indian or singh ) keep on nagging and macam wanted to fight. So my brother said ' aiya u stupid la, a 3 year old go toilet close door!'. And during the time my hubby keep on saying ' ok enough la, diam, bring the bill we want to go off '. But the man was already very angry. He ran to his counter and bring out a PARANG. Everyone was shouting and i quickly shoved the kids away. The owner started saying ' im gonna put you down ' to my hubby and brother. I was calling out for help to the people there who was looking but they all said ' PANGGIL POLIS SENDIRI LA ' ( THE PENDUDUK THERE REALLY SOOOO SELFISH ) THEN THE OWNER HELD MY HUBBY AND BROTHER CAPTIVE AND WON'T LET THEM GO. My sister in law seeing that no one came to help, ran to the nearest police station! I was there helpless and the restaurant worker ( the one who make the tasteless roti canai ) whip out a chopper. Oh my god, i was soooo afraid! And the restaurant owner punya friends also join in. They were throwing things at us ( bottles, glasses of drinks and chairs ) I saw a fat indian men threw a bottle at my brother and hit his chest and the indian worker threw the chair at me! Luckily my brother try to block it with another chair and the chair that the indian worker threw broke in to pieces and the plastic hit my lips. My lips were bleeding and my brother finger were bleeding too cause by the parang when my hubby and brother try to calm the owner down as he was waving the parang and it kena my brother finger. Luckily it was just a small cut. We quickly take the kids back to the car and drove to the police station. By the time we arrived my sister in law already there.
The cops was of no use. We asked them to go there immediately as my hubby and brother still help captive but they were slow to respond. When finally the police able to brought them back to the police station, i was relieved but angry at the same time. How could this happened at CAMERON HIGHLANDS? i've been there last time but this time i make a mistake to eat at the indian restaurant! When the indian owner arrived at the police station he just keep saying ' he called me stupid, why? i'm not stupid ' Hes really STUPID. Hey how many 3 years old were teach to go to the toilet and close door?? and because of these the owner can whip out his parang and threatened people??
Statements were taken but the indian owner, indian worker and their friends were NOT arrested! I was dissapointed and the owner was even allowed to go back to his restaurant! I asked the police and they said its ok they will SIASAT but how come the weapons - PARANG AND CHOPPER were not confiscated?? They still have the weapons! How can the police allow this??
So i'm telling you guys, DON'T GO TO CAMERON HIGHLANDS cause this place is really very dangerous and the people - UNCIVILISED, UNEDUCATED , UNCARING AND CRAZY! If you really wannna go, go to brinchang, its safer and the people are very helpful ). NEVER EVER GO TO THIS INDIAN RESTAURANT CALLED ' D' CHENNAI CURRY HOUSE ' AT TANAH RATA . Better still never go to TANAH RATA!.
