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.. :)

  16. You'll see the photo when you're on your way to the casual market. There are a few furniture shops there. That is Jalan Kota.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
