S' Corner Central Market @ Brinchang

S' Corner Central Market is a place that you can shop for fresh vegetables, mushroom and fruits. 


The most interesting places that I would recommend my reader is to visit the mushroom section. Here, I saw different species of mushroom. Some I never see it before. And you can also buy the fresh mushrooms. They are packed in plastic bags. 
I bought some of the mushrooms back and tried. Well, for a mushroom lover like me, I can enjoyed all of the mushroom bought but if you cannot stand the strong mushroom aroma, perhaps you only buy the usual mushroom will do.
Aren't they beautiful?



My gal loves strawberries and cherry tomatoes very much. So we brought few packages of strawberries. And some we eaten in Cameron Highlands after washing it. Then few we brought it back. After I came back from Cameron Highlands, I freeze the strawberries.
After few days passed, I almost forgot about the frozen strawberries. I wonder what should I do as not much left in the freezer. Then I google for strawberry muffin recipe.
Then I came across several different recipe and mix and match and came out with the following recipe:

2 cups Self Raising Flour(SRF)
1/2 cup castor sugar
120gm butter (melted)
2 eggs
1 cup strawberry youghurt (I use two small tub of Nestlé Youghurt)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box strawberries ( I use frozen strawberry and cut cubes)
1/2 cup toasted walnut (I cut into pieces)

1. Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius.
2. Sift SRF and Castor sugar into a large mixing bowl.
3. Place melted butter, eggs, youghurt and vanilla essence in a bowl and whisk to combine.
4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and slowly fold all the ingredients until just combined.
5. Add strawberries and  toasted walnut. Then fold to combine.
6. Bake 20 - 25mins or until cooked.

After browsing through the farm and some explanation from the management there, we proceed for some food.

Water Cress Farm


Here you can either do for the charcoal steamboat or you can go for their chu char. But we were attracted by their charcoal steamboat. Hubby loves steamboat very much. And with the cold weather in Cameron Highlands, it is quite a good choice to choose steamboat. 
Following was the steamboat that we ordered:

LAVINO CAFE @ Cameron Highlands, Pahang.

During the Raya break, we decided to go for a day trip to Cameron Highlands. Just to escape the hot weather. We stopped by Ming Court for dim sum then headed straight to Cameron Highlands. 

Bharat Tea Plantation

We drove straight to Tanah Rata. We stopped at Bharat Tea Plantation for a cup of tea and refreshing ourselves with a cool weather looking at the beautiful tea plantations. Kinda relaxing with not many patrons around as its quite early. 
Enjoying hot tea and relaxing!
Then we stopped by few places buying some cherry tomatoes, petai, oranges, strawberry and assorted different vegetables.
We shopped at the "market" too! Then we stopped by Lavino Cafe for lunch.


This cafe just open its door few months ago. The whole building of this cafe actually attracts many customers. Which including us! It looks like the "China Fujian " Clan House.
Interior and exterior of Lavino Cafe
Lavino menu

Mango Peach ice - cream cheese cake
We ordered this desserts since it shown in the menu that "The Must Try Desserts". Actually my gal would like to ordered strawberry flavour. Then I told her that perhaps we try the mango peach since just had the fresh strawberries before that. And she said "Yes...... try something different then!" 
This is the first dish being served since it's all prepared in their freezer, where you can see several flavours line up on their freezers. While we were in Lavino, it seems like begin to rain, strong winds while we were sitting inside eating this ice - cream cheese cake. 
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict : You can give it a try! Something different. We enjoyed it!
Chicken Bolognese Pasta
My daughter had this. When this dish being served to her. She start smiling. Then after she ate, she smiles again. I knew the answer. She then asked the daddy, would you like to try? hahhahahhaa....... in term of food I think they still have more rooms to improve.

Curry Chicken Rice and Rendang Chicken Rice
As for the curry chicken and rendang chicken, they served the same type of rice, sambals, peanuts and egg. The only different is the curry chicken and rendang chicken. The rice is certainly better than the chicken bolognese pasta.
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: It is a place to sit down, rest and relax. The ice - cream cheese cake is quite nice. Curry Chicken and Rendang Chicken Rice is just ok.
