Northern Mountains

I’ve never been to Ipoh proper even though we’ve like passed through it hundreds of time whenever we drive to Penang. I wrote down a couple of places that we should cover (mainly famous temple and limestone caves).

Mum's saying something, Turkish's scratching and I'm taking this

Road to Ipoh is lined with limestone caves

We had a hard time looking for Sam Poh Tong, and when we got there, I was rather disappointed with the temple’s condition. Without ample funds and donations, restoration to its former glory is impossible. Maintenance itself is difficult too. I don’t think you’d believe me since the place is pretty photogenic!

So it became famous from the "Best Landscape Garden in 1993"

Sam Poh Tong (Three Treasures Cave)

Breathtaking view of its backyard

In 1993 it was the best.. now it looks like piles of rock shit

Arrrggghhhhh.. the woman in the background!
Picture spoiler *sniff, sniff*

Seeing my dissatisfaction, we dropped by next door at Nan Tien Tong and Ling Sen Tong. So many tong, tong tong! Actually they all looked the same to me. I guess the dampness from rainwater all year round damage the statues/painting quicker. Ooohh well. We lingered around for a bit more before dinner time in town.

Signs in Malaysia are a waste of money, really

Hahahahahaa how typical!

Mummy doing her rounds

Ling Sen Tong's fancy pavillion

And its ugly horse.. Turkish broke the poor steed's tongue

Mummy couldn’t recall which place serves the best Ipoh Taugeh Chicken or Chicken Noodles. We just parked ourselves at the busiest shop :P Okaylahhh.. nothing to yell about. The noodles were so slippery, Turkish’s shirt were hit by drops of oil from the soup!

We had no choice but to believe its self-proclamation LOL

Ipoh's best? Perhaps, we are tourists..
You know how tourists taste are always exploited


We bought pomelos. Turkish was amused with their sales tactics. Every stall had a woman posed or calling for customers, one looked better than the other and he was confused who was selling what (rather what was selling who? LOL).

Hehehehee Turkish wasn't impressed!
