pictures from Ipoh at last !
its the long awaited IPOH ride photos that i took from last last last week. god knows when, the reason was someone took my cable and my camera, but returned my camera without the cable, sigh .. so much for being responsible .. i am not sure if i can remember my trip ride but i will just post the pics up for you to see, ipoh as i can say is BEAUTIFUL , lots of mountain and the place is very cooling, no pretty girls thought.. i dont think ipoh has many pretty girls as said by many, i think its a hoax.. show me a pretty girl in ipoh i show you a flying saucer !
ok .. first up, i was cycling along bentong and bentong is this place which potrays the ghetto of America, its really screwed up and lots of gangbangers.. aha . using the exact words like those niggas.., well its not that bad, its just that it USED to be famous for gangsters and lots of murders etc..etc. u name it they got it, but now its not that bad.. its just a place for drug pushers and some little gang fights and all, but besides that .. its a nice place in Ipoh, i stayed with my friend Sam, we reached Ipoh on a Saturday evening cause Sam was working and we met up with Stanley for Dim Sum at a place behind Shell along Bruce road. slept early to get up morning at 7 to help Sam make some curry puff,
its a beautiful sunday morning, Sam and the gang, oops.. i mean Sam and the family is going out for church so i already decided to bring my bike along to see the scenery of Ipoh, i took off as soon as they went off to church while cycling i passed by this shoplot, as you can see (ok refer to the photos once you finished reading ok) there is lots of pigeon sitting ont he cable and the shoplot, infact, the picture is just the tip of the iceberg, there was plenty more wher that came from, i took picture of the old buildings and went to this small chinese temple below a bridge, its so funny how its situated underneath the bridge, as you can see the second picture of the temple, the old ppl was too shy when i told them to pose for me, see all the old ladies on the lefT ! haha .. so funny .. friendly people.. chatted with them .. making jokes as one of them kept asking me for money so that i can have good luck ? how is that by giving her money ? i rather give the temple .. ahah
i cycle on and i saw something that attracted me to stop, its this market on Memory lane, it looks just like thieves market in Singapore,i dismounted my bike and i was walking along the traders.. i can tell you, you can find any thing here, lots of old stuff thought, even screws, erm .. brush, painting, old vinly records, spoons, used shoes, etc..etc.. and all of a SUDDEN .. i saw this man selling COCK PUMPS and sexual enhancer.. ahha .. wah ah pek doing good business ler.
as i turned out from Memory Lane, i met two fello cyclist name KAPAK and TOK DIN, kapak is the apprentice of TOK DIN, famous among fellow adventure racers in ipoh and kl, Tok Din is wearing the purple jersey, i sat down and chatted with them about the adventure scene in KL and they told me about thier bit of adventure racing as well, GLad i met them, they brought me around Ipoh and they showed me some good hills to bike in IPOH, guess where we pass, yes LOST WORLD OF TAMBUN and TANJUNG RAMBUTAN! from ipoh town to tambun is about 20k, as we parted, i have another 40k to ride back, i was cycling all alone back to Bentong, but the scenery was just too good till i saw this bad jam along one of the roads, so i guess i was just maybe a small accident.. guess i was wrong, if you see the picture of a brown proton, look closely to the left edge, you will see a green sentra with its back screen smashed.. it was bad i tell you, i think the motorbike knocked into the back of the sentra and the rider or pillion smashed his/her face into the screen ! i saw the biker lying on the middle of the road while covering his face alot of blood is streaming down his face ! yucks ! as you can see the long jam and the people helping to put the motorist to the side so they can pass ! sigh .. lucky he was wearing helmet! i stress this again ! WEAR YOUR HELMET when riding !
ok on the way back to bentong, i saw this KFC.. wait wait . its KLG, its a rip off from KFC.. i wonder how they are doing .. ahah .. check out the temple in the cave. really beautiful , i wonder why ipoh like to hide thier temple under bridge, in the cave.. i wonder if there is a portable temple anot .. hhmm.. well before we left for KL i was hanging out with Sam sipping Soya bean at his stall, where he helped his mum to sell curry puff, hey i made some of those ok, i tell you the vadai and curry puff is YUMMY MAN ! well i would bring back some for you guys the next time k !
