2D/1N TAIPING/IPOH TRIP 2018 # 2

15/7/2017
SUNDAY

morning view from my room... the Sin Chew Daily newspaper distribution centre just opposite the road but didn't hear any noises this morning, must be the wonderful bed.
Breakfast was included together and it located on the 2nd floor of the hotel.  

Egg station... pick your choice and the masterchef can cook it to prefection. 

DIY for your noodles... 

the buffet line.. baked macaroni with sausage; DIY Nasi Lemak with yummy sotong sambal,  fried rice and French toast. 

Plain porridge served a variety of condiments. 

 outside the restaurant there is space for children to play.
After breakfast, it was time to do the heritage trail of Ipoh....some of the beautiful colonial style buildings ...












and of course, a lot of the old shophouses have been revamp into hipster cafes...



 


The "First Wife" lane..

entrance to the most popular Panglima Lane aka "the Concubine Lane".
Being a Sunday, it was super overcrowded and there are many stalls selling soveniers, food and drinks. For me this place is too commercialise...  
  
whereas  the desolate "2nd Concubine Lane" is a peaceful stroll 

came across this beautiful cafe... 


 




After this walk, it was time to rest our feet and fill up our growling tummies.  Its free and easy to take lunch and buy the famous salted baked chicken and other food items.  We took our lunch at the Onn Kee Chicken with beansprouts which the local people recommended instead of at the Lou Wong. 

When in Ipoh must visit at least one limestone cave and here we are at the Kek Look Tong, off the usual beaten track..but still amazing  

holes in the roof... 

the wave-like structure on the ground 

 

 
the layers of rock formation.







Our cheerful guide with my sister...
Last but not least a visit to Tambun Pomelo farm. Beside taking the fruit, the pomelo skins can also be used. 
Secret recipe openly displayed for everyone.

"Do not touch, if it drop, it's considered sold!"
This was the last shopping and then it was all the way towards Ijok for our dinner before returning home. 
A Big Thank You to the organiser, Ms Theresa and everyone for a wonderful trip.
