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....

  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..

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....

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

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...
