Ipoh Murals / Street Art / Wall Paintings


When in Ipoh, we've came across a colorful spread of wall paintings located at the lane in between Jalan Masjid and Jalan Sultan Iskandar (previously or more commonly known as Hugh Low Street). All thanks to Ernest Zacharevic's murals and inspirations, street art has become a visible presence not only in Penang, but the capital city of Perak too. Hooray! Another to-do when you come to Ipoh next time!

Rubber-tapping. This kind of reminds me of my childhood memories, helping out my parents and grandparents in the rubber estate. Actually, I spent more time collecting rubber seeds "橡胶果", burning leeches with matches (as disgusting as it sounds, but you gotta do it before they drain your blood out) and capturing marble bugs "波子虫". Hehe #BornInThe80s

Ipoh's famous Bean Sprout Chicken (怡保芽菜鸡). The meat was a bit rough this time, less oily and no more red chillies on the bean sprouts.
