Streets Of Taiping Town

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon and as we walked along, I managed to capture these street scenes in Taiping town...
Some of the shops are being pulled down and reenacted...
In another couple of years, there would be some new changes...
Notice some new buildings coming up too...
Especially at the town area near the Fire Brigade...
Along Jalan Pasar... (Market Street)
 Opposite the Kakak Restaurant..
Information Office... 
Along the main road...
Cannot remember this road..but  in front is the market...
Maybe Taiping bloggers will find this familiar...
At the Taiping Food Court ...
This is the place where we can find lots of food stuff...
Fried Koay Teow, Laksa, Fried Or Chien, noodles, rojak.. etc. etc...
Biscuits, snacks and desserts are available too..
By the way, do you know which stall sells the Best Char Koay Teow here?

  3. The road seems desserted except the food court. Is it because it's Sunday.

  4. What on earth are those? They look horrible!!!! I wish they woyld restore and preserve the nice, old and beautiful buildings. Our history, our heritage...like in Penang! Here too! They got rid of all of them, so sad, really tragic, but at least they do not replace with those peculiar looking structures.

  13. That Jennifer place, you mean it was originally like that? The Information Office also - sticks out like a sore thumb against the tall building behind it - which badly needs a new coat of paint - would be nice to get rid of the yellow...all white like the nice colonial structure in front.

    Sometimes, when restoring, they should make minimal changes. I like how they've done it in Penang, very nice and tasteful. Not Singapore...now it is like a fairy land, a giant theme park. Maybe some people like it like that but to me, it has lost its soul. Not as nice as the way it used to be anymore.

  14. STP, I am enthralled by Jennifer's place, maybe I like buildings to be painted white and it blends well with other colours.
    The Information office is built during the colonial times, so I hope they won't demolish it.. yes, the building behind does need some repainting and I am sure many of our town shops need that too...
    About Singapore, I think they are doing a good job too.. only that it is now overcrowded with people.. :)

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 …
