Tourist Attraction Mural Art Experience At Wisma Chye Hin, Ipoh

WHEN NANCY SUGGESTED TO GO OLD TOWN TO CHECK OUT A NEW PLACE, I was all ready to go with her.  Three months absence from Ipoh, I was looking forward to seeing the changes in old town.  She told me that this Mural Arts is at Wisma Chye Hin, for several moments,  I couldn't recall where that place is even after she described the locality... I really must have lost touch where is where.... LOL....

And thus we set out to this new discovery... and to our delight, there was one empty parking lot just in front of the entrance of this Chye Hin building!  Feeling excited, I quickly exit from the car and took a few pictures before proceeding up and up the stairs....
Let's go!  It's free entrance for all....
The 3-D art right at the entrance.. 
Resembles a foot?
And on the way up, the wall murals are displayed along the staircase.... 
Old Town Ipoh in 1920s...
On the way up, this caught my attention.... 
And as we went up... these were in store...
Ipoh Tin Mining Days...
Dim Sum is the attraction of Ipoh from those days till today.... 
The Sun Cinema.. cheapest tickets sold here then... 
I was a regular here during my younger days...
That was how tickets were sold those days...
Those born during my time are familiar with these movies... LOL..
The milk which "brought" me up to what my size is today... LOL...
This is nicely drawn...

My friend who brought me here to experience the nostalgic days....
UP and UP we went... 
Altogether five floors..and surprisingly we did not feel any tiredness walking up and up....
On both sides, there are vacant lots to be rented out...
Hope this place will be bustling with people the next time we come again.... 
Thank you Nancy for bringing me here....
Indeed another attraction for those who are visiting IPOH!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
