From Penang To Ipoh - A Short Visit To Taiping.

Travelling from Penang back to Ipoh, we made a short visit to Taiping. Our friends wanted to visit a relative in Taiping town. Before that we stopped at Antong Coffee Mill, tasted their coffee and bought some coffee. After that, we drove on to Taiping town.
Antong Coffee Mill - the oldest coffee mill since 1933.
Notice the chain link fence behind the giant cup?
Taiping's market, consisting of 2 markets built separately.
The first was built in 1884 and the second was built in 1885.
Can you see the fence around the market?
A back alley behind shop houses.
After visiting our friends' relative, we walked over to a nearby shop for lunch.
Even though it was early about 11.30 am, business was good. We ordered chicken rice, popiah (wrapped spring rolls) and drinks for lunch. I got myself distracted and ended up without any photos of what we ate for lunch. 
 I only had the above shark and turtle photos found on the wall of the shop. 
 While walking back to our car, I passed by this shop and the above caught my attention.
"A loving old couple"
We stopped at a shop we passed by to buy some freshly fried banana fritters.
 More fence photos for Good Fences.
These fence shots were taken at the ferry jetty and the last one on the ferry.

Linking to Good Fences.

You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds,

O God our Savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth,

even those who sail on distant seas.

(Psalm 65:5, New Living Translation-NLT)

Roof Top Views & Flowers From Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

After walking back from the beach which was a short distance from the hotel, we were still early and breakfast was not ready. We heard of the hotel's roof top swimming pool and we decided to take a look.
Photo #1 - It is an open air roof top swimming pool. We found a worker cleaning the pool.
Photo #2 - The view was good from on top of a 7 storey building.
Photo #3 - Golden reflection of the sunrise on the opposite high rise buildings and also on the railing around us. The stainless steel railing looks like gold railing.
Photo #4 - High rise buildings on the left and open sea on the right. The air was cool. This is the best time to take a morning swim before breakfast. No swimming for me because my swimwear got too tight for me to fit in. Lol!
Photo #5 - Hope you enjoy the photos taken from the roof top.

Photo 8 - From here we can see the main road in the above photo. 
Photo #9 - Pretty cloud formation over the hills.
Photo #10
The following flowers shots on our morning walk near the hotel.
Beautiful yellow and orange Heliconia flowers.
I had these in my garden but they started spreading all over the ground that I had to dug them out.
 I tried growing them in the pots but they didn't do well in pots. 
I also had the dark purple leafy plant on the right. It is the Cordyline red plants. They were removed from the garden when we replaced the old garden fence.
These Heliconia plants make good hedges around a building.
These colourful flowers and their leaves are great for flower arrangements.
Deep Pink Ixora flowers.

And why do you worry about clothes?

See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.

Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed

like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,

which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire,

will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith?

(Matthew 6:28-30, New International Version-NIV)
