Some Images Of Old Town, Ipoh

From where I stood, I took some pictures around me... 
Never before I notice these buildings properly though I pass them by almost daily...
What captivated my eyes was this building...
For many years, it was an "eyesore" 
but recently, it was beautifully maintained...
It looks so classic now...
Hope they will make this as a Heritage Building...
Along Sultan Yussuf....
another one of those Colonial buildings...
wonder why they put up the leaves as "curtains"...
from the inside...
from the exterior.....
and what is this?  
yes.. in the 1960s...Monroe's time....
You will not miss this when you go through the alley....
at the side of Burps & Giggles....


  1. Nice and historical buildings. HSBC is just behind it. Hopefully it will nicely maintained forever. I like the way they plant the leaves, to shed away the sunlight I guess.

  2. so what's that building exactly?? haha.. been to Ipoh once (and just once) and i remember a white building opposite the train station, it looks majestic..

  3. Lovely buildings from Ipoh. Hope they will be maintained for many generations to come!

  4. Love the historical buildings in Ipoh, thanks for sharing.

  5. well the buildings were indeed pretty
    and the wall paintings were hilariously cool

  6. I like those colonial buildings. Not many left in KK already. Ipoh is a nice place to be..

  7. I haven't been to B & G yet..

  8. Ipoh share some similarities with Penang...... Looks nice!

  9. Nice pic. I've only been to Ipoh twice in my entire life I think..

  10. Claire, really WONDERFUL that you are taking us on a tour of where you live, I have wished for this!!!! The building is wonderful!!! And I love the colors in the row of houses, also the leaf wall. And the paintings, so much here to love!!! It is true that we never pay any attention to things we have grown up with. Makes me think of Jesus, his family thought he was crazy and he was not appreciated in his hometown.

  11. Looks like a nice city, love the murals.


  12. Wow... nice art, Claire... especially the Marilyn Monroe's one! I like it!

  13. irene: oh, you got a point there! no wonder...

    sk: the one opposite the train station is the city hall... as for this, i need to dig out some information.. sometimes i read and then it vanishes from my mind.. hahaha...

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
