IPOH Trip Day 3

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

Day 3 of our Ipoh trip saw us waking up pretty early in the morning again, this time in search of Ipoh's finest murals. Our morning stroll started from our Airbnb as we headed west along Jalan Russell taking in the sights, then north along Jalan Raja Musa Aziz for a little while before turning west again along Jalan Masjid until we reached the general vicinity of Mural Art's Lane. 

Here we spent quite some time admiring the various wall art while marvelling at the artists' patience and dexterity.

After half an hour or so we headed west along Sultan Iskandar until we reached Ipoh River Front where we crossed to Jalan Bijeh Timah and entered the first of the three famous lanes, Second Concubine Lane — Market Lane (三奶巷). 

Further north along Jalan Bijeh Timah we encountered the famous of the 3 lanes, Concubine Lane (Lorong Panglima 二奶巷) lined with souvenir shops, fashion outlets, cafes and dessert houses that were mostly closed (permanently or otherwise, we have no idea). 

We finally entered the least famous of the lanes, Wife Lane (Lorong Hale 大奶巷) which in our minds held the least appeal, or rather, was not given much attention by the local council.

We worked up a mighty appetite after all that gallivanting and went looking for some authentic local breakfast before deciding on Restoran Nam Chau, the least busy of all the eateries here. We sampled the Kaya with Butter Toast, and the Tan Chi (Bread & Egg sandwich). A tall glass of iced white coffee was the customary accompaniment to this merry breakfast feast.

After breakfast we walked north along Jalan Bandar Timah, then left along Jalan Tun Sambanthan until we reached Padang Ipoh and disturbed a flock of pigeons.

Realising that it was already mid-morning, and the sun would be blazing down on us, we quickly made a hasty retreat back to our Airbnb. After a refreshing shower I began editing the previous day's videos in earnest. Tuckered out by the morning exertions we decided to order in from Grabfood and tried the famous Nasi Ganja Kedai Kopi Yong Suan. Due to the large dine in crowd on the weekends, we were only able to book a delivery after 2pm (which we were fine with).

It rained heavily in the evening, and with no plans made we found ourselves walking to Gerbang Malam again. This time we were determined to give Lou Wong a try. As luck would have it, we found an empty table but was told that we were not allowed to sit there since it was meant for 4 persons. We were asked to sit indoors and knowing that there would be inadequate ventilation we left Lou Wong. Guess what? Their loss is Ong Kee's gain!

After dinner we visited Lam Fong Biscuit Shop 南方饼家 and managed to acquire 2 bags full of confectionary delights. We then walked home, and I began working on the videos shot today.

We will be headed home tomorrow :(
