The Palm Court

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Dessert|United Kingdom

As we mentioned in our previous post, since it was our last few days in London, we decided to indulge in a fancy treat before we came back to Malaysia. Having afternoon tea was one of our to-do things in our list. We did a bit of research on the internet and found The Palm Court which was part of The Park Lane Hotel. Since it was available for booking, we decided to visit this place.

Interior, The Palm Court
The Palm Court was beautiful. The art deco lounge was elegant and sophisticated. There was a harpist who played the harp throughout our dining session. The ambiance was perfect.

Sandwiches and Savouries, The Palm Court
We decided to go with their Summer Perrier Jouet Afternoon Tea. It was priced at £41 per person excluding champagne. We started the afternoon tea with a selection of sandwiches and savouries. We had Smoked Chicken, Watercress and Tarragon with Salad Cream, English Brie with Gooseberry Chutney, Egg and Cress with Crème fraiche, Honey and Mustard Roast Ham with Wild Rocket and Roast Salmon, Cucumber and Dill Mayonnaise. Suffice to say that all of them were very good and we enjoyed the sandwiches a lot.

After that, our scones and desserts were served in a two-tier stand which was brought to us after we finished our sandwiches. The bottom tier consisted of seasonal scones which were served with Perrier Jouet Strawberry Jam and Devonshire Clotted Cream. The scones were very fresh and delicious, excellent when eaten with the exquisite strawberry jam and clotted cream, we were very satisfied with it! On the upper tier we had two Eton Mess, Peach, Almond and Vanilla Tart. The desserts were very good overall, we loved all of them!

Desserts, The Palm Court
Other than the food served before, we were also offered to choose additional desserts from their dessert tray. We picked a Chocolate Almond Cake, a Pistachio and Almond Cake and a Vanilla Panna Cotta with Peach. Our favourite was the Pistachio and Almond Cake, the top was sweet and creamy while the cake was light and fluffy, it was a winning combination which won our heart!

Flowering Red Amaranth, The Palm Court
Also included in the Summer Perrier Jouet Afternoon Tea was two serving of teas from their selection of loose teas. Pictured above was the Flowering Red Amaranth from the oriental tea selection. The presentation of the tea was fantastic, it was served in a transparent teapot where the hand-tied green tea wrapped around an Amaranth flower can be seen. It tasted very good as well, light and infused with the fragrance of green tea. My better half had the Moroccan Mint Tea which was refreshing and reviving. Their teas were very good overall.

Souvenir, The Palm Court
As stated in the menu, the Summer Perrier Jouet Afternoon Tea also includes a palm court gift. At the end of our tea session, we were given two teacups as a souvenir. Happily receiving the gift, we brought them back to Malaysia. For more information about The Palm Court, please visit their official website.

Regent's Park
After the fulfilling meal, we decided to have a walk in the park. Since we already been to Hyde Park a couple of times, we decided to visit Regent’s Park instead.

Regent's Park
These photos were taken in the park itself and it was a nice stroll in the evening during summer time when the weather wasn’t cold.

Regent's Park
We visited Queen Mary’s Gardens and the park was beautifully decorated with blooming flowers. There was also a garden café and an open-air theatre in the park.

Regent's Park
We had a great time in the park, it was something that we miss a lot in the UK.

Your friends and neighbors will be impressed by the improvement in the appearance
of your home. These doors are manufactured in wide sections that retract or roll up by a pulley system that places the door overhead
in the garage when fully open. Your local DIY store will probably be able to provide a range of budget doors
but if you require a good quality door then a professional
garage door retailler will provide the best service.

It is great for a cleaner to remove rust, grease, and other substances but if used as a lubricant
it will not last and you will have to the re-lubricate the door sooner.

I took my time going through every side hallway and exploring everything
I could find, so by the time I finished it there was little
left for me to do. Actually, all of them are best choices, but it
depends upon the quality of the construction and other accessories
that are used in making these doors. Park the buggy and walk in to drop off the supplies with Dan.

If you heat your garage or if the rooms adjacent to this part of
the house are not heated effectively, this type of garage door is ideal.
Ask any professional and they will tell you that these two companies have an equal, if not better, product than any national
brand. The collectible is inside that room in front of the desk.

I’m not going to lie, it was a pretty long process (about 2 months) to hammer out the details, but I was able to pull it off with a
few bumps and bruises. You will want to consider the style of your doors to find out which companies carry them.

These doors just move in two directions that are downward and
upward.

Generally, steel doors are more inexpensive than wooden doors.

Both of these types can adjust in even the smallest of
space and they do not require any extra space for opening and
closing.

Also, unlike steel, wood does not dent and, thus, will withstand the occasional stray basketball or hockey puck without any problem.

It may appear stupid to own a machine that only shapes metal into one form.

This is considered to be the main risk with rhinoplasty and it accounts for 5-15% of the cases that cause revision surgery as based on studies.

However, apart from beauty purposes, nose jobs are also
used to correct problems that might have occurred due to a
misshapen nose, such as breathing. Lack of hospital privileges really should sound
alarm bells within your thoughts.

These are more valuable than their weight and are treated differently by the moving company.
The best bet is to ensure that your items are properly packed.
Since First Call Movers have been local movers, long distance movers and have carried
out moving assignments for government agencies, retail companies
yet others, they certainly know a thing much more about moving.

It’s essential to have a clean skin before applying a tanner.

Mom will love it just as much, provided that you do the dishes afterwards.
With some really cool designs from high quality fabrics, almost every woman would love to dress
up in Herve Leger creations. Women in India have turned back
to traditional clothes like sarees with dark colors and
attractive designs.
