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. ;)
I was made to feel very welcome in Ipoh, thanks to the entire Lim clan.
I ate a lot of food – this here is the famed Ipoh roasted duck. Besides eating…
…much of the time was spent in…er, diversifying my portfolio to include liquidity based assets.
We also hit a couple of houses, do the CNY visiting thing.
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. ;)
It has gone Pharaoh-nuff! Get it? Egyptian pharaoh with Ziling, my camwhoring buddy. =D
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!
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.
Thanks to the EZY sisters for having me in Ipoh! =D
Happy CNY everyone!
P/S - Did you know that Ipoh is also famous for their leng zai? ;)
