Kampar-Ipoh Sep 2016 Day 2

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.

The wall art are along aisle and back of the buildings #ipoh #travel #wallart

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:

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.

Long q for tau Fu Fa. Luckily there are fans for the q #funnymountainsoyabean #ipoh #travel #fan

On the way home, we stopped by Tapah R&R for short break, toilet and buy fresh fruits home.

Love these wood walls #wood #tapahrnr

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.
