Whittington Bungalow: The Great Caretaker

This post is going is to be abit emotional.. or maybe not.. I dunno I just started

Before you proceed, maybe you would like to read up about the caretaker in Fraser Hill and caretaker for Whittington Bungalow here:  http://frasershill-juneartstudio.blogspot.com/2009/05/charming-place_18.html

My sister told me that the caretaker of Whittington Bungalow is a very good cook and he has serve the Angmo before. He has become a great caretaker and has done an excellent job. Because of his fame and the idea of staying in one of the colonial bungalow, we quickly make a trip to Fraser Hill before he retire. True enough, during our stay there we actually told the caretaker Mr. Lim Jeow Fong that we’ll come back next year and really hope to see him again.

Mr. Lim told us, he and his wife will be retiring this coming July! (Oh no… oh no.. why retire so soon?) My heart quickly sunk but its really selfish to beg him to continue serving and taking care of Whittington after 40+ years with the same role and he is already 70+ years old. I wonder will he be in tears when he bid goodbyes to Whittington and move to Subang Jaya to be reunited with his four children. We told him that the weather in KL is very hot, and he agrees and would try to gives himself 6 months to adjust to the new environment. ..

Some of the pictures to share.. of the food prepared by Mr. Lim.

Our Lunch on Saturday, home cook chinese food. The vegetables are actually grown at the garden by the caretaker’s auntie. Unbelievably very nice leh the food, no MSG!

Tea Time at 4pm, the curry puff bake by Mr. Lim.. my heart actually melted. Very very tasty and the tea!! OMG the Tea.. how can he brew the tea till so fragrant?

Dinner

Pay attention.. see how he placed the cutleries.. this is the formal dinner cutleries arrangement and the Tomato soup is so creamy!!!… I actually wanted to ask for more.. but too shy to ask and now I regretted.

The bun, freshly baked, so crunchy and yummy and .. and and.. I’m I’m I’m.. I cannot describe how awesome it is. See the sauce there? Its homemade tartar sauce!

Main course I had Chicken Chop! Heavenly taste.. Super Super Triple Super Nice!

Dessert Chocolate Pudding.. Can you see the smoke? Freshly baked, not too sweet, Dunno how to describe it.

Message to Mr & Mrs. Lim (If you happen to stumbled upon my blog or if your children saw this, pls pass the message)

Thank you very much! We truly enjoy staying in Whittington and we truly love the food that you have prepared! Please give me your phone number, will you bake me another Chocolate Pudding?

    My family and I stayed at the Whittington in 1970. We drove down from Bangkok, Thailand and stayed in Penang with friends for a few days. Frazer’s Hill and the Whittington were a wonderful place to cool off and enjoy. Such great memories.

      I’m envious that you’ve seen the once New, Grand and Glory of Whittington in the 70’s. I hope you’ll come Malaysia again and have a walk down memory lane. You can have dinner or lunch arranged at Whittington, but not stay.
