The Old Town Of A Humble City, IPOH

On a bright Sunday morning, my girl and I strolled along the busy streets of old town, Ipoh... I heard that it has been very "happening" lately, also proven in some blogs and Facebook... Out of curiosity, we took a fifteen minutes drive to old town... Despite the hot sunny weather, we managed to cover some fair bit of the "What's Happening" in my humble city, Ipoh....
The Happening Place...

We walked around the vicinity of this area.... 
 
We had our brunch in Thean Chun... 
Packed with people of all ages... 
 Walking along the lane between Kong Heng and Thean Chun, 
we came upon The Farm....
Red Giant Tomatoes...
At one of the stores near Monroe Avenue...
Approaching the "marketplace" near Plan B....
Mostly handicraft items are for sale...
 
Bustling with people....
I guess they are only around on weekends?
The Arlene House.....
From the market, we adjourned to Concubine Lane....
Met up with Santarina.....
And stopped by here for awhile to get something done....
No More Boring Wall?
Interval time... Stone Painting....
Let's do a Ladybird!
Taking up the "challenge".....
After the difficult task was done, we made our way home....
Two hours was all we took...
Would like to go there once again.... 
*But remember to wear a hat or a cap this time round!*

  1. It is good to have this type of happenings but prefer to have it during evening/night time. Too hot during the day and I have to salute you for the 2 hours walk you have made. I love to browse through all the nice handicrafts. Very nice structure of the Arlene House.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
