I LOVE BATIK

6/9/2015
SUNDAY



Another round of mooncakes making on Saturday.

After the hard work, Sunday is our rest day.  So, went gai-gai with Sarah......


First stop for breakfast. Heard about the Green Tomato Cafe with its batik-painting workshop. I love batik cloth and the unique designs in each piece. The batik cloths are so colourful, bright,  suitable for the hot weather (cooling and absorbent) and lastly even if you don't iron them the creases are almost invisible. That's the greatest bonus for me who detest ironing ever since when I have to do ironing for my whole family and what more with the old charcoal iron!   So, I have self-imposed a uniform for work....tailored batik blouses chinese style... my signature design. hahaha! I buy these sarong pieces, normally costing around RM30-40 from Central Market, but the tailoring costs could more as the Chinese saying "the servant costs more than the owner", referring to cheap material but expensive workmanship.

The Green Tomato cafe sits on a lush open space ground with plenty of trees around  

the batik workshop.
Each person  is charged RM50.00 and you can choose the design (l small piece of cloth)  and thereafter you can paint however you like.  Paints and brushes are provided.  If you have a large group of 35, then it is RM35.00 per pax.  

You can choose to sit inside the "cafe" (not air-con) or outside under the trees. 

Order and pay at the cash counter, pick your table and they will serve your food. 

While waiting for the food to arrive, I took a walk around the workshop..


these are pattern moulds for batik printing... 

the loom for batik painting. 

tables with pots of paints or is it liquid wax, I forgot to ask them.
You can choose a design from them or if you are creative to design and paint your own. 

there are plenty of space for kids to roam and play around. 
Right at the back you can see their gift shop.


among such peaceful surrounding, I am sure everyone can be creative. 

Our coffee- flat white and latte 
What the difference?.. its the milk added to the coffee.. latte is more milky. Want to know more? The cafe also offer barista course. 

We were recommended that these 2 are their signature dishes

Egg Benedict but eggs were a slightly overcooked.... no oozing runny yolk.
The potatoes are nicely grilled on the outside and soft inside. 

Hearty breakfast.. the ham was dry and overcooked. 
Portion was very filling indeed.
  
Have a wonderful weekend.
