It’s Monday and I’m about to croak from all these deadlines.
Had a nice, relaxing weekend in Perak though. It was a little trip organised in conjunction with Shutter Asia’s (https://www.shutterasia.com) 1st Anniversary. Nothing fancy, just food, photography and friends. We stayed at this place called Cinta Alam Kelimat. Pretty secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city and loads of mosquitoes. Bring the industrial sized insect repellent!
We met up at Tesco Ipoh and then adjourned to town for some photos. It was fun! I wish I had slapped on some sunblock and wore a hat. My skin has gotten even more tanned and I’m not sure if it’s a good thing. Personally, I’m into looking as pale as a ghost =P
Here are some pictures taken from the trip….
Boy scouts walking across Ipoh Padang. They were amused by the swarm of photographers.
Painters reaching up to the top of the building. Don’t think it’s an easy job, could easily get heat-stroke.
We went into a barber shop which has operated since before Merdeka.
Can you spot me?
This old man was sitting by the window looking really nonchalant. Then he really warmed up and started posing for us.
We met a couple of shopkeepers who have been there since 30, 40 years ago. They were very happy to tell us stories about their shops and were showing us pictures of their more glorious era. These shops will eventually disappear because their children won’t take over and there are simply too many new and modern competitors.
Windows on an unidentified building. Love the shadows and the blue sky.
A less extravagant setting for the Gods.
They were just standing there looking out, minding their own business. And then the man in the middle turned to look at me and I took the shot. I did wave back but there was no response, maybe I was not welcomed =(
I love how this little green plant managed to creep out from the sparse parking lot.
Last one taken in Ipoh town before we stopped to rest. Tree, sky and clouds.
That’s all for now from Ipoh. Pictures from Kuala Kangsar coming up!
