Hot Scones And Tea At Old Smokehouse, Cameron Highlands

ACTUALLY WE DID NOT BOOK ANY HOTEL IN ADVANCE, it was a last minute trip up to Cameron Highlands.  On the way we called up several hotels to check out their rates, yes, we compared their walk-in rates with an online website.  To our surprise, the online website is cheaper than the phone calls to the hotels.  I quickly made the reservation online and on the way up, we passed by this hotel.....

No, we did not stay here.... just went in to look-see... 
Part of the exterior looks like this....
And at the lobby....
Looks very "english" in a way too...
After that, we proceeded to the one that we booked...
Copthorn and formerly known as Equatorial Hotel three years ago...
Okay, I fast forward to the next day where we had tea and hot scones before we left for Ipoh..
We dropped by at Ye Old Smokehouse again... to meet up with our friend...
We choose a nice ambiance to have our tea at the garden... 

Hot scones which cost RM10 per piece....
Though our tea was on the house, I was like.... "Oooo...."
Jakun me!

My friend told me to take a closer picture of this famous scone....
It was still warm to our hands and soft....
For RM10, I savoured every bite...
hahahahaa....

Their own special cream and special strawberry jam....
Seems the chef did the jam himself and they are sold at RM19 for a small jar... 
My afternoon tea at the Smokehouse...
Must keep this as a momento...
Thanks to our friend and her hospitality while we were there....

  3. I love the garden. Having scone and hot tea in a garden is very English. ^^ but RM10 for one scone, must be very good till last bite!

  4. Scones don't look the usual regular shape - wanted to eat that in Kuching that day but they were out of fruit jam, they make there own. Sighhhhhhhhh!!!!! Only RM12.00 for a set of two.

  5. RM10 for one scone includes the tea, cream and jam so I think the price is ok as tea alone would be around RM7 in a cafe or even more if you are drinking TWG tea.

    2. But you wrote though the tea is on th house? Or is it supposed to be thought tea is on thr house?

    3. What I meant was that the whole set (including the scone and tea) was on the house.. :) Sorry for misleading..

  6. Everything looks so good at this tea! Especially the delicious looking hot scone. The table and chairs are very beautiful too. If this were here, I would go every day! I agree, the big hotel does look English.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
