First, we stopped by Ipoh for the famous Yong Tau Foo at Pasir Pinji Big Tree Foot (Dai Shu Geok) before heading to Taiping. You can read more review at Motormouth from Ipoh. (one of the blog that featured more on Ipoh foods)
Sar Kok Liew (yambean fritters), one of the must try item. If you want a recipe, you can check my post here.
You can order some noodles to go with these Char Liew (fried stuffs) or Yong Tau Foo (vegetable stuffed with fish paste)
Then we check in at Sentosa Villa , quite a nice place..
Also went to Taiping Lake garden
Dinner taken at the hawker stalls, foods were just ok..
At night, we went to Taiping Night Safari
Kids were having fun there, but I told them that I didn't see many animals as inside was so dark, LOL!
The next morning, we went to this shop to take Kuoy Teow soup (flat rice noodles) , taste were just ok..
Restaurant Kakak Kuoy Teow soup
I saw these nice old-fashioned plates with black flower printing, so special..
Opposite of this musuem is Taiping Jail
Before heading to Kuala Sepetang- Matang Mangrove Forest, we also stopped by a charcoal factory.
But we didn't get inside because it was too smoky..
This place is so nice and calm, remind me of the Bamboo forest at Kyoto
when my son Desmond was upset ^_^ (forgot what reason he was upset at that time)
baby mud crabs..
We took lunch at a Seafood restaurant Kang Kao十八丁港口海鲜楼
Every seafood that we ordered were so fresh and good!
Nice view while enjoying our lunch..
sun bath the salted fishes..
