CNY in Ipoh

drive

Ipoh is a small town (but one with city status) about 2 hours away from KL. I drove down to spend CNY with the Lim sisters – Eiling, Ziling and Yiling. Ipoh is surrounded by limestone hills and the “hard” water is said to contribute to the famed Ipoh leng luis. It’s commonly said that Ipoh is a leng lui (beautiful girl) manufacturing factory so I think I made the right decision to spend CNY there instead of back home. ;)

welcome

I was made to feel very welcome in Ipoh, thanks to the entire Lim clan.

roast duck

I ate a lot of food – this here is the famed Ipoh roasted duck. Besides eating…

gambling

…much of the time was spent in…er, diversifying my portfolio to include liquidity based assets.

visiting

We also hit a couple of houses, do the CNY visiting thing.

camwhoring

I also consumed quite a bit of ethanol-based drinks considering its CNY and all. No, don’t ask, think about how many people have asked me already before you do that. ;)

grapes

It has gone Pharaoh-nuff! Get it? Egyptian pharaoh with Ziling, my camwhoring buddy. =D

group

It was quite fun actually, visiting the Lim sister’s relatives and friends. I even met a couple of people who reads my blog. Greetings!

ezy

We had planned to spend a night there but ended up spending three days and two nights in Ipoh. There are just too many photos to post up so the next post would be about places and food in Ipoh.

end

Thanks to the EZY sisters for having me in Ipoh! =D

Happy CNY everyone!

lengzai

P/S – Did you know that Ipoh is also famous for their leng zai? ;)

    Tz: Thanks! :)
    More coming up – had a lot of the fabled food from Ipoh. Apparently food in Ipoh tastes better coz of the “hard water” from the limestone hills.

  3. ok…the last pic was a bit weird… but its fun reading through the post. love all your entries… makes me laugh or think about serious things each time.

    Vivi: Eiling is pronounced as YI-LING but Yiling is pronounced as Yit-Ling (with a silent ‘T’). This is in accordance with the pronunciation of our names in Mandarin :)

  13. cindy: Thanks! :)
    Appreciate the kind comments! :)
    Tan Yee Hou: Eh, the dude was awake la. Waving his hands at passing girls and stuff like that. I don’t want to touch that with a 10 foot pole, mate. I don’t know where the thing has been. ;)
    Cheryl: Haha! My best work ends like this one. :)
    Trey: Start of the working week! It is said that people born in 1981 (Rooster) would have a good year this year. :)
    I’m a Rooster.
    suituapui: Haha! Yeah, I’m sad to report that mine is much shorter, though I think my girth exceeds his. ;) I must drink more Ipoh water!
    Ya, my birthday is on the 5th of April (Aries, fire element, all the way). I need clothes and a wallet. *hint*
    WEEN: Yup, old skool sixthseal.com ending, that. ;)
    Oh yeah, I have a post you would be interested in. I think I’m going to setup another totally anon domain soon.
    jessy: Hmm…pigmentation is my best guess…
    Coki: Oh, her birthday is today. She would be pleased to hear that. :)
    vivi: Yes…a bit confusing right?
    chefmel: Mel, wanna go Penang this weekend? Next Monday holiday.
    eiling: Thanks for having me! :)
    Haha! Yeah, me and Yiling were looking at him and I couldn’t resist. I took two long shots and two close-ups. Who wants the original 12.4 MP 5.84 MB photo in all it’s glory? ;)
    Darren: I see that every day in Sibu. There’s this guy that sleeps in front of our office building. Unfortunately, he met an untimely demise. He was hit by a drunk driver. Not me.
    Yiling: Ya, I couldn’t do the Flickr enhancements. I think au natural (no pun intended) looks better anyway.
    I shall call you E-ling regardless. :p I call Eiling EE-ling. With the E dragged longer. ;)
    janel: sixthseal.com does not do censorship. ;)
    Mellissa: I have the full resolution photo. It’s bigger than my screen, his anatomy. Best. You want? ;)
    Ziling: You’re not fat la. You need to eat more. Buffet! :p
    How can you be fat when you don’t even like sweet stuff?
    bongkersz: Haha! It’s the very last pic so you have time to close the browser. Besides, it was tagged NSFW in innit and PPS. :)
    Happy CNY buddy! :)
    Yeah, I heard Sibu MAJOR flooding. Good thing I didn’t go back.
    Marlboro Guy: Thanks mate! :)
    Yeah, this is classic (as in 2003 classic) sixthseal.com style. Old skool flava. ;)
    seth.frostheart: Ipoh is AWESOME! I loved it. Especially the food. It really tastes better, I don’t know why, some attribute it to the hard water.
    tom: Shit, I’m sorry to hear that mate. I hope your friend gets well soon and I hope your broken arm mends soon too. Take good care my friend.
    Firdy takes 5: Yup, so which one is your favorite? ;)
    tom: I had to do this bit of community service to men considering I’m like…2 inches unerect. ;)
    Haha! Love you witty response mate.
    sean: Hmm…I don’t think he’ll mind a lot. He seemed much more interested in accosting female passerbys than me. :)
    Michelle Chin: I know! We went to Ipoh Parade. A lot of lala people there.
    shaoweii: Hail to the King! ;)
    tom: Hey, take care buddy and watch out for that broken arm. It takes ages to heal mate. Be well, and email me.

  14. It’s not right to make fun of that man. He is ill. If he was well, he wouldn’t have exposed himself in public. Treat him like a human being, treat him with dignity. Don’t laugh at his suffering, his illness. If you have ever been depressed before, ever been at that darkest place, and know what it’s like to almost lose it, and if it was u who lost it, how would u feel? Have a heart! Poor sense of humour. Peace.

  15. Angel: Eh, I’m not making fun of the man, mate. I have a whole host of mental illnesses (erm, perhaps I shouldn’t have said that) but I have no problems with my photos being posted, compromising or otherwise.
    I won’t feel a thing, if you know me, and you’ve seen my FB photos, you’ll know that I’m okay with nudity. No big deal for me. :)

  16. Nx Monday holiday for Thaipusam right? It’s not a holiday here. :( And i can’t skip classes coz i’ve been skipping many ( self declared holiday for cny and when i came back i was sick ).

  17. went to the eye doc this am. all is well. no bad stuff for myself. all is well though i gotta get tranistion bifocals. I thought they were only for old persons?. still 18 in my heart. thanks, hb. for your thoughts. fly low and hang tough.
    tom

  18. tzia: Yeah, I always like to end my posts with a bang. ;)
    chefmel: Oh, too bad then. Yeah it’s a holiday to replace Thaipusam. No worries, we’ll meet up some other time. :)
    tom: Hey, good to hear that you’ree getting better. Keep it up mate. Hope to see you up and about again.

  19. dude… that pleasant story ended with some cina cock man… hahaha that was some hilarious shit…
    Can you do more shit about Malaysia.. im pretty interested in finding out more about he weird culture like that mans cock hanging out. :-) haha

  20. Dear Huai Bin,
    I have been reading your Blog for a while now. Though allot of your posting is interesting and is based on your day to day living, I would ask you to reconsider the last picture which is of the man and his penis. As Angel said, that man is not well. It is an inhumane thing to do to post his picture like that.
    Furthermore, life has been very unfair to him. If this was a western country he wouldn’t be in the street and he would be taken care of rather well by an institute. Though you are justifying yourself by stating that you are fine with nudity that man would not share the same opinion about nudity.
    If YOU are fine with nudity then post naked picture of yourself in your Blog but not his. Sorry for being harsh but you are not seeing it from a humanitarian perspective. There is right from wrong, and it’s entirely your choice to do the wrong things…however you shouldn’t involve others who cannot defend themselves. I strongly hope you can reconsider this.
    Regards,
    Jason J David
