On Wednesday, 5 November 2014, we drove up from Penang to the Camerons and stayed a couple of nights at the OMF Bungalow. (Yes, it was the same day when the landslides and floods took place in Camerons but fortunately for us, these man-made calamities happened on "the other side of the mountain" i.e. along the "old road" in Bertam and Ringlet. We drove up by the new Simpang Pulau route and everything was fine. In fact we did not know anything about the floods and landslides until we got to Ipoh on our way home to Penang. (We make it a point not to buy newspapers or watch TV when in the Cameron Highlands).


The OMF Bungalow is one of the finest in Camerons and also one of the biggest, with 10 large rooms. Previously, only missionaries stayed there but later, all Christians can book the bungalow for their holidays. It was built in 1933 by a Chinese Towkay named Yee Yoon Kok and later sold to the OMF. Does anyone know who this Yee Yoon Kok was?

We arrived on a wet day but this did not dampen our spirits. Pic shows Ethan enjoying himself by sploshing on the puddles.

The entrance to the OMF Bungalow. Nearby are the Sultan of Pahang's Bungalow, Wayfoong & Sri Menanti (both bungalows belonging to HSBC Bank) and the Strawberry Park Resort. A little bit further down is the TNB Bungalow.

Not sure who painted this masterpiece but the painting looks a bit crooked. I tried to adjust it but the frame was too heavy and I was afraid it might fall onto Ethan :-)

It has a big and beautiful garden which is hidden from the main road.

hello Neil, the OMH bungalow is above the TNB bungalow but not directly. Have you any memories of this place?
