Ipoh Town Hall Seen In Different Lights

Whenever I am at the Ipoh Railway Station, I will take the opportunity to walk around hoping to get some nice snapshots. I happened to be there last week, and I was early. It was about 6.25 pm and I saw a few young people posing and taking photographs. I took some pictures of the post office building and also the town hall building. Many times I have taken pictures of these buildings.
6.28 pm
The Ipoh town hall is a beautiful and impressive building facing the Ipoh Railway Station. It was designed by the Government Architect, Arthur Benison Hubback (1871-1948) with Neo-Renaissance Victorian style, surmounted with colossal Greek and Roman columns. It was constructed by British East India Company in 1913 and completed the building in 1916.

When the place is lighted up - looks so different!
 An antique photo of the town hall.
The day started with a gloomy morning sky at 8 am.
Sweet and pretty frangipani flowers to cheer up the day.


Is there any such thing as Christians cheering each other up?

Do you love me enough to want to help me?

Does it mean anything to you that we are brothers in the Lord,

sharing the same Spirit? Are your hearts tender and sympathetic at all?

Then make me truly happy by loving each other and

agreeing wholeheartedly with each other,

working together with one heart and mind and purpose.

(Philippians 2:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)
