If you look closely, you’d notice the pipeline on the far left of the picture. That should clue you in on the location. The men running belong to the HHH – yes, the popular Hash House Harriers! This picture was taken off their 650th Run Souvenir Magazine, 1977. Any members of the HHH reading this? We’d like to hear about your running (and drinking!) adventures 🙂
The Other Festival, a festival of Arts, History and Food organized by Kakiseni kicked off in Ipoh on the 22nd of October and would be active until the 8th with fun filled events over the course of 3 weekends. A couple of famous Ipoh-ites would also be involved in the festival namely, Patrick Teoh and Bernice Chauly, who would be taking participants on their respective trails.
More information on The Other Festival can be found on Kakiseni’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/mykakiseni?fref=ts
From what we were told, there used be street processions in Ipoh during the 9-Emperor Gods Festival! Today, we’re featuring a Then and Now photograph. On the left is a picture from 1947, on the right is a recent photograph (from the Star).
Breakfast, tea time, supper…no matter what time of the day (or night) there’s nothing like a couple of warm curry puffs to accompany your tea/coffee. The one shown above are chicken curry puffs, the one cut into 3 pieces has a cheesy filling! Our photographer bought these at a road side stall along Jalan Canning Estate; the chicken curry puff was 50 cents, the one with the cheese filling was RM 1.50 🙂
What’s YOUR favourite curry puff filling?
This was probably taken at a school sports day – most likely the ACGS (Anglo Chinese Girls School) Sports Day! I do wonder is the girl in the picture broke the record for the high jump event……
I vaguely remember the annual sports day at my school. But I’ll never forget the good ‘ol Milo van with the free Milo in paper cups (yummy!). What were YOUR school sports memories like?
