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...

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

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....

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

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...
