Memories Of Ipoh.

Even residents in Ipoh used to say it was a "sunset" city with little growth and a good place to live in retirement. So much has changed in the last ten years, with the city leapfrogging over night.

I can still remember the lonely D.R. Seenivasagam Park and the Ipoh Stadium, which was a popular make out place. Popular hotels such as the Excelsior was with audible loud thumping disco music from downstairs, much like the Hotel Anika in Kluang.

Many parts of Teluk Intan town retained its colonial-day charm.

Into A Top Secret Military Operation

After all, the building was rickety and at the verge of collapse. LOL. Inside, I was surprised to see her using big stainless steel steamers, shiny new stainless steel containers and even a conveyor belt system for automation. A crew of Indonesian women were deployed and they worked with military precision. Wow. Looks from outside can be deceiving. Mei Ling, an auditor by profession, scolded me for being naive. Surely they make money, she noted.

Liew Kee.Of Teluk Intan

It is so famous that it spawned so many imitations in Klang Valley's pasar malam stalls or the night markets. The imitations tasted lousy, having tried the original. The iconic stall, Liew Kee is as famous as the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan.

Teluk Intan sights

The riverine town of Teluk Intan may be sinking due to river erosion and erosion of the coastline. It is a complicated and complex problem but the people there remain rather optimistic. The town seems to have the highest number of licensed gaming outlets east of Vegas.

Teluk Intan is so cool, in that it has a lottery shop that is a ride in (top left) at the time of my visit in 2008. Quite practical as many punters are motorcyclists and they can just ride up to the counter to place bets.

The Leaning Tower Of Teluk Intan.

Saw a post from Teluk Intan native Chong See Ming and decided to try out Facebook's improved search of old posts. Found the image surprisingly quick.That it works will save me much time in finding the captions for my book. The original pic is in high quality PSD format.

If you are a Photoshop user, you may like to know that the free Faststone Viewer is the only image viewer or simple app that can display PSD files in a gallery. Even Photoshop can't do that. Heh.

Going Home For Raya

Going Home For Raya

I started on this journey on Federal Route 1 on March 29. I have since covered Rawang, Serendah, Ulu Yam, Rasa, Kuala Kubu, Kerling, Kalumpang, Hulu Bernam, Tanjung Malim, Behrang, Slim River and many tiny places in between.

To tell the story, I visited quaint little towns, rustic villages and wandered through dusty roads and jungle trails. Camped in tents, stayed at dodgy 'rumah tumpangan' (lodging houses) but also at comfy hotels, chalets and motels. Met friendly and warm people from all walks of life.

Nature's Art

The cats in the previous picture were looking at me looking up at this tree in the orchard. They must be thinking city people are strange people.

A couple of curious kids came and sat next to me on the grass littered with fallen leaves. Finally, one brave little girl asked: "Why are you looking at the leaves for so long?"

I wanted to explain: "I am looking at the seasons in the sun". Although trees are evergreen here, they do have their seasons where the leaves change colours and the branches bear fruits.

Of cats and a goat in the countryside

Hard enough getting two battling cats to sit together for a portrait. Even harder to get a goat to walk across frame on cue.
