Interesting Happenings In Gopeng.

After our chicken porridge lunch in the food court in Gopeng (which I have posted in the previous post), together with our guest we drove around Gopeng. We do not visit Gopeng as often as we used to. My hubby grew up and attended school in Gopeng.
We stopped for me to snap some wall murals.
#1 - Lion dance mural
#2 - A noodle stall
I like this one. #3 - little girl sitting on a cut tree trunk.
#4 - Durian fruits & stinky bean (petai) stall.
Our friend pointed this out to us. 
"Gopeng Antique Kopitiam"
This got me interested. Got out from the car to snap some photos.
I was curious about this place but there was no one around at that time.




An old fashioned tricycle stall selling satay and nasi lemak.
Found this abandoned old house nearby.
Sharing the above old treasures with Tuesday's Treasures.


A good man's speech reveals the rich treasures within him.
An evil-hearted man is filled with venom, and his speech reveals it.
And I tell you this, that you must give account
on Judgment Day for every idle word you speak.
(Matthew 12:35-36, TLB)

  2. Love the beautiful murals paintings especially the noodle stall. Is this unique kopitiam operating business? Like how they turn it into kopitiam but on the other hand, the abandon house looks spooky.

    1. I have to keep a watchful eyes for the murals. I don't know whether the kopitiam is just a show piece or turning it into a business place. Ya I wouldn't want to be near the abandoned house at night!

  4. The Antique Kopitiam seems deserted. Is it some sort of show unit for the public?

  7. Nancy, it's nice that you have this antique house in your area. It's a beautiful heritage and glad it is preserved. The wood doors, windows and even the outside tables looks so sturdy...things of the past are more valuable and lasting than what we can buy these days. Thanks for sharing this with us:)

    1. It is true, Annie, that the modern things are not made to last as those in the old days.

  19. There's an exotic (for here) fruit grower out on the island near us and we tasted Durian fruit once (good) and smelled it (Eek!). It looks like a very nice place to visit.

  21. Loved the murals, it is so neat when they can do scenes and at first glance you can't even tell if they are real or not. Sounds like you girls had fun!
