This was a last minute decision to go to Gopeng for breakfast and a short outing. Our friend picked us up from our house at 8.30 am on a Monday morning. We drove to food court at Taman Gopeng Jaya hoping to enjoy the Gopeng Lai Fun (local rice noodle) but found the whole food court closed. We then drove to Kopisan village and had our breakfast there. The place was packed with customers.
While hubby and friends waited at the table, I went to pick the yummy goodies and waited in queue to order the noodles.
Here are some of the stuffed and fried goodies for the customers to choose.
I ordered 4 bowls of plain noodle of regular size. After paying for our orders, the server will bring the food later. Service was fast and good except for the queuing part.
A bowl of goodies plus a few pieces of fried bean curd (not in the picture) for 4 of us.

After breakfast, we visited the Kampar Tin Mining Museum. I have taken many photos on my previous visit. You can click here and here for more details and photos. For this visit, these are the photos I have taken.

"You aren't saved by being good,"
they say, "so you might as well be bad.
Do what you like; be free."
But these very teachers who offer this "freedom" from law
are themselves slaves to sin and destruction.
For a man is a slave to whatever controls him.
(2 Peter 2:19, The Living Bible-TLB)
