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.

    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.

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
