Raya Breakaway

Last week's raya holiday had gave my wife and I a chance to have a much needed breakaway to a cool and quiet place in Malaysia: The Fraser's Hill. To avoid the noisy crowd, we'd chosen this exclusive place: The Ye Olde Smokehouse.



The weather was beautiful. The air was fresh and cool. The colonial structures of the smokehouse had elevated our mood to relax. Upon arrival, we were served with the best scone and afternoon tea we'd ever had.


Many visitors (not in-house guests) travelled to this place just to enjoy their famous afternoon tea and home-made freshly baked scone.

Not only that the exterior (and the garden) was beautiful, their in-door decor was also captivating. The old English style decor had made the place cosy and relaxing.

Lots of sofa for the guests to relax, either to just sip some coffee or just to enjoy reading books at your leasure.


We stayed in a suite. The Room was huge, furnished with canopy bed, two single sofas, a fire place, a basket of fresh fruits, and a writing table. Of course, the attached bathroom was equipped with hot water supply and a bath tub.


The view from our room's window was spectacular!


Though it was a short two days one night stay, this trip was good enough to energize us. The quiet and peaceful moment we'd had was worth all the money spent.

I'll definitely be back here again whenever I need to be energized.

[Bud] O ya, although the drive took me three hours, the peacefulness and quietness way surpass the long hour drive. Indeed it was very romantic. Sesuai sangat untuk honeymoon!

[Ain-ain] A'ah, best sangat. Masa kita naik pun ada durian jugak, but kita tak beli sebab takut nanti keta busuk, dan takleh bawak masuk bilik.
