Tourist Attraction Mural Art Experience At Wisma Chye Hin, Ipoh

WHEN NANCY SUGGESTED TO GO OLD TOWN TO CHECK OUT A NEW PLACE, I was all ready to go with her.  Three months absence from Ipoh, I was looking forward to seeing the changes in old town.  She told me that this Mural Arts is at Wisma Chye Hin, for several moments,  I couldn't recall where that place is even after she described the locality... I really must have lost touch where is where.... LOL....

And thus we set out to this new discovery... and to our delight, there was one empty parking lot just in front of the entrance of this Chye Hin building!  Feeling excited, I quickly exit from the car and took a few pictures before proceeding up and up the stairs....
Let's go!  It's free entrance for all....
The 3-D art right at the entrance.. 
Resembles a foot?
And on the way up, the wall murals are displayed along the staircase.... 
Old Town Ipoh in 1920s...
On the way up, this caught my attention.... 
And as we went up... these were in store...
Ipoh Tin Mining Days...
Dim Sum is the attraction of Ipoh from those days till today.... 
The Sun Cinema.. cheapest tickets sold here then... 
I was a regular here during my younger days...
That was how tickets were sold those days...
Those born during my time are familiar with these movies... LOL..
The milk which "brought" me up to what my size is today... LOL...
This is nicely drawn...

My friend who brought me here to experience the nostalgic days....
UP and UP we went... 
Altogether five floors..and surprisingly we did not feel any tiredness walking up and up....
On both sides, there are vacant lots to be rented out...
Hope this place will be bustling with people the next time we come again.... 
Thank you Nancy for bringing me here....
Indeed another attraction for those who are visiting IPOH!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
