Happenings And Handicrafts At Old Town, Ipoh

IT HAPPENED ON ONE WEEKEND when one of my out-of-station friends dropped by to Ipoh and I took him to old town to walk around.... There is always some happenings during the weekends especially during the school holidays.  Being a local, I do not go there often and it was a good opportunity for me to walk around since my guest was here in Ipoh that particular weekend.
Walking through the green alley....
... to a almost historic place....
This place used to be my ex-classmate's home...
It was more than thirty years ago, 
I used to come here cos I was working nearby then...
And we used to order food from Kong Heng and ate them in her house here...
And now this place has become a popular spot.... 
Next to it... the lovers' locks....
And handicrafts...
All sewn with passion.....
Fascinated crowd....
One can learn to sew too....
Elephant... my friend!
Remember that famous movie in the 70s? 
Up, close and personal with the Lady....
Yes, she is One Gifted Lady....
Her passion here tells it all....


  1. friend, I remember that Hindi movie. Love the historic buildings. Bet your friend is having a great time there & so are you.

  2. Ipoh Old town? make my think of the coffee...

  3. Elephant my friend the movie? This movie made me cry, really cry till my eyes were swollen but I enjoyed the movie. I think I watched more than once. The lady is really gifted, she sewed all those elephants?

    1. OH , i didnt cry leh... but I saw Bobbie many times... !

  4. Wah .. So nostalgic ! How about cockman street ? Can go in and visit visit ?

    1. hahahaa.. tak boleh la.. now landscaping there...

  5. Oooooo...what a lovely place! I sure would want to go there and browse around. Anytime this, instead of the boring shopping complexes and malls.

  6. Oh. Now I know there is lover's lock in Ipoh. No need go to Paris to see the lovers' locks! ^^

    I would love to visit the old house. Beautiful place for photography.

  7. that is exactly how we should preserve the legacy of our culture.. old buildings if renovated can be indeed great beauty and more attractive, to tourists.. it makes no sense to just replace all the old ones with expensive new ones..

    1. You are right... some should be maintained.. historic and nostalgic...

  8. Wah didn't know there's such a place in Ipoh! Lover's lock too! Good to know that they try to preserve the heritage and the buildings :)

  9. Very nice handicrafts. Good for decorations at home.

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
