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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
