Sunday Happenings In Old Town, Ipoh

I was told that there was something on in old town last weekend... to satisfy my curiosity, my girl drove me to the happening place. We parked our car near the clock tower and walked a short distance to the Concubine Lane....
Something fascinating was on display....
And loud rap music was heard in the air... 
Got myself into position like them too....
And stayed awhile to watch these young girls in action....
If not mistaken, there is a dance academy nearby....
 Another girl doing her dance...
Thought my girl would be interested to stay longer... 
But she didn't... she wanted to move on... 
Maybe it was just too hot to stick around...
Another type of music was on the opposite side of the road....
The song.... "Have You Ever Seen The Rain?" was sung...
They even sang a Chinese song which received some good applause from the crowd...
Most cameras were in action when they sang ...
More action around the vicinity....
That was it... 
One hour plus... and we were on our way....
Hope there will be more attractions in the coming months....

  4. Just this morning, over breakfast, a colleague (100% pure breed Penangite) mocked Concubine Lane, saying "Aiyo! So many street, why use this street as tourism spot?? Scare no people know is yi lai street??"
    I replied him: "At least people are honest, not like your beloved Georgetown, call it Love Lane. How can you call the infidelity place as Love Lane? To self justify for the hamsap old men??"
    Then he kept quiet... XD

    1. RG, thank you so much for justifying for Ipoh! So touched... anyway, all these are historical names, nothing can change them and I hope they never will... it is history no doubt and that is the mystic side of it... hope this heritage will never fade...

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
