Independence Day In Pusing

Happy Independence Day to all of the Malaysians!

I was not born yet when Malaysia achieved her Independence from the British. (so not too old really! LOL) But few years later, I was born and since then I am considered a true bred Malaysian.. raised in Ipoh and have been staying here since... hopefully one day I can "uproot" myself and stay in some greener pastures on the other side of the unknown mountain.

Ok, enough crap...

Since today is a holiday, my kids and I woke up very late but by 11.30am, we were out from the house, driving using the coastal way this time... we made plans to go to Tanjung Tualang actually... but last minute, we heard from a friend saying that a few shops in TT were burnt in a fire. So our plans made a "detour" and we eventually ended up in Pusing.... about 40 minutes drive from our house.

Pusing is a small town...

the main road in Pusing

cars were aplenty but mostly parked
cos it was lunch time when we reached..
mostly everyone were in the shops having a 'feast'

it was a hot day.. and Peter Loh's soya bean
and bean curd dessert caught our eyes...

Girl having fun at the stall..
looks like she was manning the stall...

yes, truly she was.. helping Peter Loh...
and having fun too!

after our lunch and buying so much tidbits,
we continued on with our journey...

    Nice place...more colonial buildings, so nice. But they need a new coat of paint. We had one here - Sg Merah...but they got rid of all this kind of old buildings and built new modern ones. Not nice at all, changed the whole image of the nice little town.

  16. Pusing is famous for the kuih muih and wu kok! yum!
    Btw, even though the Tualang shops were burnt down, they have moved to nearby shophouses! Business continues as usual ;)
