This used to be my playground..in a supposed city..
..When i was in Ipoh to attend a course, i wrote about the inconveniences of getting the roadside parking ticket. So the second time i was there about 5 days before raya, I made an effort to look for the parking tickets ( just for the fun of it, since i cant eat during lunch break ). After enquiring, the shop that sells the parking ticket its just behind the place that i attended the course in. .and it looks like this lah..oooo...the 'scratch-win-thingy' kinda ticket..where we had it like about 10 years ago in PJ.... Its 60 sens per ticks, but you hafta buy it in a booklet.. so, i had 'fun' scratching it without winning anything ;-pThis time i went alone to Ipoh, had to do 140-150kmh to and from Ipoh witha musicplayer's fullblast volume..if not i will be dead bored and sleepy. The course i attended were a two days course. After the first day, i decided to drive around. First, I went to my late grandmother's place, where, when i was small i will be there every school holidays to accompany her, i was her favourite granddaughter lah ( hehe..i think )..she got 45 grandchildren...i am the daughter of her youngest only daughter of 9 siblings..the one and only. The house is now rented by dono who, and it is sad to see that the house is not well maintained, it looked soo much better than this. There is suppose to be two very bushy rambutan trees there ( used to climb the tree to pluck ), now sudah togel..sigh.. Then i went on taking picts of the lane i used to walk to go to the nearest sundry shop... I think, in one day i went two or three times...beli kunyit la, beli asam jawa la, beli cabai la..etc the things that she has just realized that it was out-of-stock just before she starts cooking. One thing good, she gives extra sens for me to buy sweets or icecreams. Evening, she will sometimes asked me to buy the nicest most delicious gebu'es putu piring and putu mayam. Miss, Opah, she passed away at the age of 83 or 85 (dono for sure, as her bc doesnt indicate the real date), 10 years ago.
Then after that, i went to the shopping complex where i used to go with my cousins to buy real cheap cheap cassettes..Kompleks YikF00ng. The music shop is no more there, and so is SuperKinta..Nin! the superkinta is no more there!...baru tau daa..(one of the pic caption ; theres somethin funny about the motorbike..i had to take pict of it hehe)
And at 1800hrs, Ipoh is MegaJAMMM!!...my goodness..i think..this town or 'city' is too small for the 'expanding' amount of local motorists. Then i decided to stop over at the IpohParade, dowanna drag myself in the jam. While waiting for breaking fast time, i window-shopped. Finally, i found a music shop that still sells old old cassettes!..i bought 6 of the most 'nostalgic' ones ;-p at rm20..hehe..still have the player. Got myself buy-one-free-one lipstics at rm16 at W@tsons. Buy some stuffs for the kids. Altho most things here are at a very reasonable price but I think the clothes in KL is much cheaper than in Ipoh, and of course i didnt buy any. Stop over at SushiKing to eat..alone..ate very fast hehe..Back to my room...wanted to sleep..but syokla plak layan TheGreenMile movie..altho i've watched it before, while 'munching' non-stop till i dozed off..
Ipoh is still my hometown, altho very very seldom now i am there..
