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.. :)

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
