Day 1: i am at Ipoh

Haizz, my 2 weeks leave just passes like that, so fast and I'm now back work. Am now missing the days which I spent in my hometown...Out of the 2 weeks, I just managed to grab the last 2 days to jalan jalan & makan makan at Ipoh...

Reached Ipoh about 8++ in the morning. And the first stop which I wanted to go is Kwong Hong. But too bad, this place only start their business during lunch hour. Thus, we just settle down with the coffee stall which is next few stalls to it...

funny isn't? we go to ipoh and eat har mee and char keoy teow...first time eating char keoy teow with chili sauce...and the dim sum here looks so tempting

stomach fuelled up...and the next place to go is to find a hotel, of course...unlike KL, there isn't much high class hotel there...Hotel Grand View, the place which we stay for the night...ding dong bell, christmas decoration at the hotel...

I just couldn't let go the chance to try the yong tau foo at Kwong Hong...so we went back to Gunung Rapat for lunch...I must say this place is really packed of people...The reason?See that? healthy vege yong tau foo? the brocolli florets looks so cute leh...they do have fried stuff, but i more prefer those vege yong tau foo...each pieces only RM0.60, cheap?

For tea time, and craving for someting sweet? we headed to Funny Mountion for a glass of cold soya bean...and also a bowl of tau foo fa (nice, but very sweet la)

There's still left some time for a cuppa of old town white coffee...where else to go if not ipoh old town itself...along persiaran bijeh timah, you can find a few good old shops selling very aromatic coffee. You all know me rite, the coffee addict...nonono, the coffee lover sound nicer
