♨ Carcosa Seri Negara


Carcosa Seri Negara KL

and this is how they described the majestic place :

" Experience a Traditional English Afternoon Tea in this charming boutique hotel built in the1904 - the official residence of the highest British representatives of the Malay states. Carcosa Seri Negara is the hallmark of Malaysia’s national heritage. Immerse yourself in this experience and be captivated with the Victorian-styled building set amid four acres of lush landscaping.
You and your partner will dine on traditional English favorite of oven-fresh scones with clotted cream, fluffy cakes, golden pastries and other scrumptious savories while sipping on fine teas.
Take time to chat with your partner, catch up on old times and at the same time indulge yourselves with the scrumptious servings of sweet treats – seemingly escape from the world."

Taff saw this place from a food blogger "Augustdiner"

 the majestic bungalow
really jaw dropping house and ambience
and the high class waiters here
in out madam this madam that

 we walked into the dining hall
hmmm

i felt tense
first time ever a place can give me such tense and oh noes feeling

we sat down on the table reserved
chair pulled nicely by the waiter
(okay...so princess right..)
and yeah...they handed us the menu to choose our tea =D

the thing that i kept reminding myself is to SIT STRAIGHT
