Streets Of Taiping Town

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon and as we walked along, I managed to capture these street scenes in Taiping town...
Some of the shops are being pulled down and reenacted...
In another couple of years, there would be some new changes...
Notice some new buildings coming up too...
Especially at the town area near the Fire Brigade...
Along Jalan Pasar... (Market Street)
 Opposite the Kakak Restaurant..
Information Office... 
Along the main road...
Cannot remember this road..but  in front is the market...
Maybe Taiping bloggers will find this familiar...
At the Taiping Food Court ...
This is the place where we can find lots of food stuff...
Fried Koay Teow, Laksa, Fried Or Chien, noodles, rojak.. etc. etc...
Biscuits, snacks and desserts are available too..
By the way, do you know which stall sells the Best Char Koay Teow here?

  3. The road seems desserted except the food court. Is it because it's Sunday.

  4. What on earth are those? They look horrible!!!! I wish they woyld restore and preserve the nice, old and beautiful buildings. Our history, our heritage...like in Penang! Here too! They got rid of all of them, so sad, really tragic, but at least they do not replace with those peculiar looking structures.

  13. That Jennifer place, you mean it was originally like that? The Information Office also - sticks out like a sore thumb against the tall building behind it - which badly needs a new coat of paint - would be nice to get rid of the yellow...all white like the nice colonial structure in front.

    Sometimes, when restoring, they should make minimal changes. I like how they've done it in Penang, very nice and tasteful. Not Singapore...now it is like a fairy land, a giant theme park. Maybe some people like it like that but to me, it has lost its soul. Not as nice as the way it used to be anymore.

  14. STP, I am enthralled by Jennifer's place, maybe I like buildings to be painted white and it blends well with other colours.
    The Information office is built during the colonial times, so I hope they won't demolish it.. yes, the building behind does need some repainting and I am sure many of our town shops need that too...
    About Singapore, I think they are doing a good job too.. only that it is now overcrowded with people.. :)

  16. You'll see the photo when you're on your way to the casual market. There are a few furniture shops there. That is Jalan Kota.
