High Tea

This is my friend Hilary.

When I took this picture of her, she was pregnant. She has since delivered a beautiful baby boy, Ryan. I am just now getting around to posting the pictures from her "Baby Sprinkle." She didn't want a traditional shower with gifts. She instead invited us all to tea at this place.

It is Carcosa Seri Negara. The Carcosa mansion was built in 1896-1897 as the official residence of Sir Frank Athelstane Swettenham the first British High Commissioners in Malaya of the then Resident-General of the Federated Malay States. If you feel inclined you can read more about it here.

Apparently it is THE place to have English tea in Kuala Lumpur.

I have never had tea before, or been to a real tea party for that matter. It was delightful!

Since we were all LDS, we chose from the non-tea-leaf tea. What ever that is. My choice was caramel vanilla tea.

With enough cream and sugar, it was actually pretty good. Of course, when you pair it with these lovelies, how can you go wrong?

The company was better. Thank you ladies for a fun afternoon out.
