Do you recall the days when you could by an ice-cream sandwich for “satu kupang” (10 cents)? It was big money then, but today you hardly get a handful of sweets for that price.  The donor of this photograph says that the location is somewhere up north – Was “kupang” a common phrase used for money in Ipoh?
