Too many pictures were taken on the second day! So I'll break it up into multiple parts.


#1 The best way to splurge on Fraser's Hill is to rent a private bungalow or stay in this English Tudor-style house.

This hill station was also a place built where the British army sent their injured soldiers to convalesce for which the Red Cross set up a little rehabilitation centre here. The place is now converted into a hotel called Ye Olde Smokehouse. Instead of hospital bunks, the interior is now decorated with eclectic furniture and collectibles, some of which seems to be leaning a little toward bric-a-brac items.


#2


#3 Like many buildings at Fraser's, it was erected in the early 1920s.


#4


#5 Fireplace.


#6


#7 Bar & Lounge with real wood fire and comfy old couches.


#8


#9 Well-manicured English garden.


#10


#11 English Tea and scones are served at the garden patio.

Ralph would love to enjoy the wonderful traditional English breakfast, tea in the garden with scones, cream and strawberry jam. Neither would I! But my question is how to enjoy English breakfast in the garden UNDER THE SUN???


#12 Still, we enjoyed the cool weather as the temperature is relatively cooler than the tropical lowland heat and humidity!


#13

i have update with EC... i know now why hubs don't want us to use that anymore. They charged us as spammers and gave a very bad reply. We started using EC when it was just starting and it was good but they just dropped us later on unjustly :(

Monica said... @ 23/7/09 3:55 AM

more pictures soon, Ayie! ;) :)

Ayie said... @ 23/7/09 3:58 AM

Ayie said... @ 23/7/09 4:51 AM

i opened up to him that i chatted with you girls and if he'll reconsider Ec and then explained to me the stuffs they did. He really feels bad coz we patronized them nicely before. So no more EC for us and he's final with it

Monica said... @ 23/7/09 5:02 AM

I feel bad too! Big Hugs Ayie!!

Ayie said... @ 23/7/09 5:07 AM

bingkee said... @ 23/7/09 10:54 AM

Those types of houses are so common here in our neighborhood...the part we live in America is called New England. It was called then, because the first immigrants came from England who first settled here in these areas . That is why most houses are New England-style houses.

Jerry said... @ 23/7/09 1:52 PM

Hey Monica,

Nice place:)

Nessa said... @ 23/7/09 2:21 PM

Wow Monica! I've alwes wanted to visit Ye Olde Smokehouse!!

tekkaus said... @ 23/7/09 3:20 PM

Those old houses are really gorgeous especially from outside. Ha :D The style and the "taste" of the building is really beautiful. Feels like being in England or something. :-D

faizal said... @ 23/7/09 5:09 PM

Mariuca said... @ 24/7/09 2:59 PM

U there?

Mariuca said... @ 24/7/09 2:59 PM

RM still can’t chop right?

Mariuca said... @ 24/7/09 2:59 PM

Silly RM! I wrote to them abt the problem and they gave me a silly response, I think they didn understand what I’m trying to say!

Mariuca said... @ 24/7/09 3:00 PM

They said cant chop cause the number of jobs the advertiser wants has been taken up by other bloggers, but then, why does it still show up on my dashboard right? As in the number of jobs I can chop. It should be 0 and not 1, 2 or 3 right? :(

eastcoastlife said... @ 24/7/09 4:26 PM

How are its scones? My hubby and I love scones. Is it worth travelling all the way there? :P

Monica said... @ 24/7/09 5:32 PM

Monica said... @ 24/7/09 5:33 PM

Monica said... @ 24/7/09 5:34 PM

oh what did they say abt the prob??

Monica said... @ 24/7/09 5:35 PM

Monica said... @ 24/7/09 5:36 PM

Mariuca said... @ 24/7/09 6:11 PM

Mariuca said... @ 24/7/09 6:12 PM

foongpc said... @ 25/7/09 12:05 AM

But is it hot at Fraser's Hill? I thought it's cooling there but I guess when the sun comes out, it'll still be hot, no?

foongpc said... @ 25/7/09 12:06 AM
