There were loads of YUMMYLICIOUS cookies in the shop. I was having a hard time choosing some goodies from this shop. I bought over RM50 worth of Ipoh biscuits from this shop. My mom LOVE every single bits!

It's been one month since I visited Perak. I need to publish the last two post as soon as possible. The photos were lying in my hard drive for some time. So, here are the last few photos from my trip to Perak.

Coming Soon!!! My latest half day trip to Sungai Chongkak Forest Reserve.

Ipoh City - Getting There:

Most visitors reach Ipoh by car or bus. Exit the North-South Expressway (E1) at the Jelapang Interchange (Exit 141), if you're coming from Penang. If you're coming from Kuala Lumpur, exit the expressway at the Ipoh Selatan Interchange (Exit 139).

Refer to Google Maps below for more info about Ipoh's Tourist Attractions.

  3. It's a medium sized mosque partially hidden in Ipoh City. The blue and white domes + minarets are simply beautiful.

    Cheers!
