From Jeram To Kampar For Desserts & Snacks.

After having taken our brunch in Jeram which I have posted about earlier here, we drove on to Kampar because we were still early and not in a rush to return to Ipoh yet. 
I was trying to get a picture of the arch of Jeram as we were leaving but this is what I managed to captured as the car swerved to take the turning!
My friend wanted to take us to the riverside stalls for some desserts and snacks. We parked the car a short distance away and we walked to these stalls.
 This was about 2 weeks ago and the weather very hot.
 Apartment building in front of the stalls.
One of our foodie friends, a very sporting girl!
 We were not sure which stall to go to, finally we ended up here.
 Now sitting here in this hot afternoon, I really feel like having one of this cold sweet dessert to cool down. 
 We ordered some of these cute deep fried minced meat balls from the next stall, called Kedai Hoong Kee.
 And some of these fish and meat balls plus stuffed tofu puff.
 Then we walked back to a coffee shop near where the car was parked to enjoy a cup of coffee.
 This place is more like a food court with many food stalls.
 We ordered coffee & other drinks plus one of these kaya puff, just to try! 
 Time to leave for Ipoh. My friend packing lunch for her girls.
 My friend pointed out these photos which were high up above us. These were the olden days Kampar.
 Kampar was a tin mining town.
 Currently, Kampar is blessed with universities, colleges, hotels, supermarkets, etc. 
 The last 2 photos show the modern day Kampar town. It has grown from a small mining town.

 Dear brothers,

giving thanks to God for you is not only the right thing to do,

but it is our duty to God because of the really wonderful way

 your faith has grown and 

because of your growing love for each other.

(2 Thessalonians 1:3, TLB)

  1. The weather is still very hot now so a bowl of ice dessert is very welcome here too. Nice trip to Kampar. Now it is growing due to the university.
