Coffee Murals In Ipoh

Every new day we start off our day with a good meal... but not every time the food tastes good.  I was told by one of my FB friends that the fish noodles in this shop tasted not bad.  I won't be naming the shop because the food disappointed not only me but also my friends as well.   Well, it is not surprising... not everyone's taste is the same, right?  Thus the proverb... "One man's meat is another man's poison."
My friend ordered seafood noodles... 
She told me that though the ingredients were lots but the taste is somehow bland...
Maybe not enough MSG... hahahaaa...
This is my bowl of fish noodles... 
Very pathetic looking compared to the ones I used to take....
Well..... got to try then only we know, right?
But Once tried....  never buy....
On the way back, these Giant Coffee packets caught our eyes....
Good that they painted these high up...
Can avoid vandalism....
One look at these, people will know that IPOH is famous for her coffee....  
Sip..... sippp... sippppppp.... Finished..... !
The thirst is quenched especially on a hot sunny day!

  1. yalor, never try never know.. if good, then you found a gem you could go more often.. if not good, then you have one place less to go.. and i think that "kopi-o tapao" surely is a gem!! i like it, so nice and so "Malaysian", kudos to whoever did that!! :)

    1. I am not a coffee lover, Ginny... no, the building is not a factory but to beautify the walls on an old building...

  5. Seafood noodles looks great but sad to say that it turns out to be a disppointment. Owh, I never know Ipoh is famous for its coffee and I thought it was pamelo all the while.

  8. I thought the pictures look good, then after reading I look back, they somehow look less appetizing. I guess they are right when saying, your perception will influence how you look at things hahaha.

    1. Yes, I believe so... words are very sharp.. people tend to change their perception of things after reading... but it is best to try them out before making a conclusion... especially on food..
