Mock Tudor revival x Art Deco style home situated in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands of Malaysia. One of many remaining colonial bungalows which still stands today. Actual date of completion is unknown, but was estimated to be a 1920s - 1930s. Was told by current caretaker, Mr Choong, it was once a holiday home of Perak state monarch. Which was later aquired by Eu family who owns Eu Yan Sang business empire which specialise on health product and TCM medicine retail since 1879. The house is now used to be rented out as vacation spot for local and international tourist. It has 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom,1 toilet, common room, and a kitchen. Still furnished with vintage furnitures and with some modern ones. Bathroom heater are lited with gas instead of electricity where u can see fire heating up the water in the heater which is quite scary. It has a beautiful garden and lawn. Fun fact: This hill was once a tiger hotspot back in the days. Once in the 70s, the past caretaker encounter a tiger appeared in front of the house and fainted out of shock. His dog went chasing after the tiger and came back limping few days later. By the way, the current caretaker is a great cook himself. You have a choice of western or chinese alacarte, barbeque, steamboat, local or western breakfast, afternoon tea for in house dining. Had his lamb shoulder for barbeque, it was so good. I heard scones here are the best in CH. Overall, great and one of the best experience in one my favourite local destination. I enjoy exploring heritage home like this in Malaysia and all with interesting character of its own. This is only 1 of many more visits to other colonial home of Old Malaya. More to come!
