Before fully launching into this new year, let me share some moments from A Little Farm on the Hill, where we spent a wonderful Christmas Day. This place truly is a hidden gem in Janda Baik. It’s only an hour’s drive from the city, but all you hear is birds chirping amongst the neat lines of vegetable patches and fruit trees. We signed up for the one-off lunch on the spur of a moment after seeing it advertised somewhere in social media – luckily, since the tables sold out almost immediately.
Not knowing what to expect we arrived to find a beautifully set, breezy open-air dining area. Kids’ were delighted to find little treats by their plates and adults equally delighted by every moment they spent doodling and doing origami.
We were served a true British Christmas spread with a plentiful supply of smoked turkey and all the necessary trimmings. As lovers of beautiful things, the two HGKL mamas present oohed and aahed over the suitably rustic-cum-vintage setup and the pretty little details. With their tummies full most guests lingered for a while, reluctant to get back to city.
We’ve eaten our share of festive buffets in fancy KL city hotels and where they can offer a mind-boggling variety and chocolate fountains, they cannot compete with eating while watching the clouds move by, kids build bridges with sticks or toddlers adoring a friendly dog. We hope to come back for another lovely, slow afternoon with beautiful food.
