The Smokehouse Hotel At Cameron Highlands

BADE BYE TO PENANG and back to Ipoh for one night.  The very next morning, the travel bugged me again... this time we drove up to the highlands, yes... Cameron Highlands!  I had not been there for a couple of years already.  The drive from Ipoh to Brinchang took more than an hour half to reach and this time we decided to put up a night instead of driving to and fro on the same day.  At my age, it is now pretty tiring to drive a couple of hours straight....

After a simple lunch at a North Indian restaurant in a mall, we proceeded to visit an English Tudor style Hotel built in 1939.  It is called The Smokehouse Hotel and Restaurant located between Brinchang and Tanah Rata....
This is the first time we came close up and personal with The Smokehouse.... 
Nice ambiance that make us feel very "English-sey" upon entering..... 
The entrance to the reception.... on the left is the restaurant... 
A beautiful landscaping at the right.... 
That's the name... Ye Olde Smokehouse!
Come... let's go in and have a look!
It is more on a Scottish look with their deco all around... 
I was told these were from Scotland aging more than 300 years ago....
Tulip vases... 
Now there are no more such as these....
Very unique shapes for flowers....
Cosy corner for tea and tete-a-tete...
It feels more like a home than a hotel.....
At another corner where the fireplace lays.... 
Beautiful settings...
The tea house corner... either here or in the garden.... 
One must not leave this place without taking endless pictures.... 
One can opt to have tea in the garden too.... 
And that was what we did... the very next day!
More rooms for booking a short dis
Should we book a room here?  Maybe the next time....
The rates vary from RM400 over.... but I think I can get some discount... 
hahahaha...
Yes, I didn't leave this place without taking almost every part of the garden and hotel.... 
Yes, we certainly must come back for tea and scone the next day...
It wouldn't be "Cameron" without having their famous tea and hot scones, right?

  2. I love Cameron Highland but I hate the traffic jam there. Ye Olde Smokehouse is a very lovely place but costly. The garden is beautiful!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
