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...

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 …
