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!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
