Some Images Of Old Town, Ipoh

From where I stood, I took some pictures around me... 
Never before I notice these buildings properly though I pass them by almost daily...
What captivated my eyes was this building...
For many years, it was an "eyesore" 
but recently, it was beautifully maintained...
It looks so classic now...
Hope they will make this as a Heritage Building...
Along Sultan Yussuf....
another one of those Colonial buildings...
wonder why they put up the leaves as "curtains"...
from the inside...
from the exterior.....
and what is this?  
yes.. in the 1960s...Monroe's time....
You will not miss this when you go through the alley....
at the side of Burps & Giggles....


  1. Nice and historical buildings. HSBC is just behind it. Hopefully it will nicely maintained forever. I like the way they plant the leaves, to shed away the sunlight I guess.

  2. so what's that building exactly?? haha.. been to Ipoh once (and just once) and i remember a white building opposite the train station, it looks majestic..

  3. Lovely buildings from Ipoh. Hope they will be maintained for many generations to come!

  4. Love the historical buildings in Ipoh, thanks for sharing.

  5. well the buildings were indeed pretty
    and the wall paintings were hilariously cool

  6. I like those colonial buildings. Not many left in KK already. Ipoh is a nice place to be..

  7. I haven't been to B & G yet..

  8. Ipoh share some similarities with Penang...... Looks nice!

  9. Nice pic. I've only been to Ipoh twice in my entire life I think..

  10. Claire, really WONDERFUL that you are taking us on a tour of where you live, I have wished for this!!!! The building is wonderful!!! And I love the colors in the row of houses, also the leaf wall. And the paintings, so much here to love!!! It is true that we never pay any attention to things we have grown up with. Makes me think of Jesus, his family thought he was crazy and he was not appreciated in his hometown.

  11. Looks like a nice city, love the murals.


  12. Wow... nice art, Claire... especially the Marilyn Monroe's one! I like it!

  13. irene: oh, you got a point there! no wonder...

    sk: the one opposite the train station is the city hall... as for this, i need to dig out some information.. sometimes i read and then it vanishes from my mind.. hahaha...

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
