Colourful Buildings To Brighten Up Ipoh City

Whenever I am seated in the passenger's seat, I have the chance to enjoy the view around me and also to notice any new things. At one time, most of the commercial buildings in Ipoh were painted white. Lately, while we were driving along Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (formerly Brewster Road) and Jalan Iskandar Shah (formerly Hugh Low Street) I noticed that there are many buildings painted in bright cheerful colours. I think the same is also happening elsewhere.  
#1 - Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (formerly Brewster Road)
 #2 - Jalan Horley
 #3 - Jalan Horley

 A wooden "wheel" chair.
I like to drink hot cocoa.
Have been searching for Van Houten cocoa powder.
Finally found this packet at Aeon Big, Falim.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test my thoughts.
Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
(Psalm 139:23-24, The Living Bible-TLB)


  1. I like the blue colour building in #3, the wooden "wheel" chair is so unique

  2. These unique buildings are distinctive in the look and shape.
