Nothing much to do on a weekend, we made a short trip to Taiping, a 45 minutes drive from Ipoh. Reached Taiping around 10am and we wanted to try the dim sum along the main road. Unfortunately, there was no more "pau" (dumplings) left, even the waitress was sweeping away already. We ended up taking a few plates of dim sum and left the shop.
Along the main road in Taiping...
Drove the town area cos we wanted to locate the Kakak shop for noodles....
Took some time cos I cannot recall where....
But finally got it after some turning here and there...
The lady in charge... very presentable at the front....
Not much crowd already.. breakfast was nearly over....
The portion is very big... I couldn't finished them all....
Too much chicken meat too...
I think I won't order this again the next time...
With full stomach, we loitered around Taiping town...
And looked for some durians....
Found a stall that sells Balik Pulau durians...
But the prices were a bit too steep..
Ended up buying one...
I think I will go Penang next week...
Shall we organize a meet up? :)
Didn't manage to take much pictures...
Not a "food-ful" trip this time...
Perhaps next week......

Ooh. Penang! That would be a nice trip. Plan to go by road?

Haven't been there for quite some time, i think they have pretty nice food at the market areaReplyDelete
Yes, but after the heavy breakfast, we didn't go there till much later.. anyway, this trip, I didn't take much pictures..Delete
Aiyah... pity a bit late for the dim sum but still managed to get a good breakfast there. And wahhhhh got to eat durians! *envy*ReplyDelete
Now I regret not taking the pictures! :)Delete
What caught my attention is the trees. I wonder how the branches can grow till the other side. Wow, so enjoy hor, going to Penang next week.ReplyDelete
Thought of that.. still yet to be confirmed.. anyone wants to go there? Irene?? hahaha...Delete
I have not been to Taiping before. Looking at your photos, I just love the huge trees there. Although not "food ful" but you managed to jalan jalan makan angin in Taiping so it is all good.ReplyDelete
Shops really should offer smaller portion of food for small eaters like us. I don't mind paying the same price for a smaller portion. In this way no food will be wasted.
Speaking of durians, I have not eaten any durians after my post on durian. So sad. Sob sob.
Mun, don't you go sobbing... ! Let's go cari makan next time I go KL... hope to make another trip in August... :)Delete
aiyoh not very food-full and (durian)fruit-full also huh?? never mind la, I bet it was a spontaneous trip right?? that makes you even looking forward to next week's Penang trip.. :)ReplyDelete
Yes, looking forward to this coming trip... but have to really detox myself first.. too much junk food inside my stomach lately..Delete
I only visit Taiping during CNY, that's it. It's where most of my relatives will gather. :)ReplyDelete
At least once a year affair is good and it is reunion too!Delete
But today your post is filled with other beautiful things! Like the wonderful row of huge old trees! The second place looked super clean and bright colors.ReplyDelete
