Went to Ipoh on 2nd day (last day) in the morning. Goal was to eat delicious Ipoh food, walk along the street art and buy snack home.
We sat outside at the backlane. It was hot and humid but we adjusted the tables ourselves and stayed shaded.
A mix of modern and old architecture & motifs at the playground:
Some of the art look like they were from school kids (I say kids because I’m no longer a teen), not polished art but they are entertaining and presents local culture. It’s certainly not easy to paint a mural. I had done in during school time and one had to be careful the paint didn’t drip down, mixing colours were tough, must have dry weather, hopefully no bird shit and then feel sad when the paint faded or replaced by another art.
Nicol David and Lee Chong Wei, champions in our time
This was super striking and new when I went:
Did you play this game before? It’s a lot of fun with a group of friends.
Catching on the Pokemon Go popularity:
Think the art change constantly or someone just slot a boy here for hide and seek or take time out:
If you are the couple, let me know
Then we saw the super long queue for tau fu fa but it moved quite fast. Queueing was much cooler than waiting outside or at the backlane as there were fans ;) The tau fu fa is really small portion. Service is brisk, don’t expect friendly greeting or anything like that. Order, pay and eat at the roadside.
On the way home, we stopped by Tapah R&R for short break, toilet and buy fresh fruits home.
There are more street art which we didn’t go to. Be prepared for traffic jam at the Ipoh town. Lots of locals and tourists nowadays, especially at weekends and holidays.
