Menglembu (萬里望), Ipoh Wet Market

This particular Chinese wet market was demanded for major renovation couple of months back, and it was strongly objected by the locals and hawkers. Since I will have an undetermined plan trip for the revisit, or probably it will be demolished by the time I revisit it once again. I am taking this opportunity to snap some retro pictures, in effect of the "olden" look of its moments. Indeed, Ipoh is a place for retirees, as you can see many elderly around the corner :)

This is the main street of Menglembu (萬里望).

Olden days barber shop a.k.a saloon.

Chinese medical hall where I used to buy Home Cafe's White Coffee.

The nearby Coffee Shop which I used to have my White Coffee.

The not-so-wet section of the market.

Ooops... food again. There is when I have to get up early in the morning and skip my morning meals. It is just handy for me to grab whichever I feel like it in the market. I like this traditional bread with pork floss and BBQ slices, current at the price of RM1.20/piece.

The authentic & traditional wall.

Lastly, we dropped by Magnum outlet. I saw this old man aiming for a quick bet, he actually did peep out the window referencing some cars number plates out there. Not sure if he did bought my car number :)

Bye Menglembu Wet market. Will visit you some other time, not sure when.
