It’s not Universal Studios…rather Universal Cars Ltd. Yes, I’m sure some of you remember this building. Last I heard, it functioned as a nightclub for a while. Now, it seems to have been abandoned. Unless…there is something going on behind the scenes, which we don’t know about; in which case, we’d like to hear from […]
Take a good look at the building in the picture below. Looks familiar? They used to be at No. 84 Hugh Low Street. Anyone know what they traded? 😉
Thanks to our donor, we have an interesting photograph here. These boys (and their Teacher perhaps?) are in the middle of a cross-country run. Any guesses as to what building that is in the background? 🙂
Said to have originally belonged to a Village Chief (Penghulu), this particular spear has a simple forged blade about 10 inches long with a wooden shaft. Overall it is around 56 inches long. Have you seen one similar to the one we have? Or have you wielded one before? 😉

After all those photos of the city, we thought of showing you something from a village instead. If you’ve ever lived / visited such a village before, do share some of your experiences with us 🙂 pictures courtesy of Ann Kesselring Hamon
…in Taiping. These were taken by Percival Moss, a tailor who sewed uniforms for the Malay States Guides and other military organisations. We thank his grandson Bernard for sharing them with us. We estimate the date to be early 1900s.
No, we’re not being ‘bitter’ about it…but did anyone realise that this beautiful floral clock is no more? For those who’ve never had the chance to see it, here are two pictures for you; both are from Ann Kesselring Hamon. The lady in white (left image) is Ann’s mother Florence Kesselring. As for the right […]
Remember this memorial? Any idea where in Ipoh Town it stood? Or…maybe you might know WHO built it?
Ever wondered what was at the back of the Ipoh Railway Station? Well, here’s a late 1930s view (picture courtesy of Winson Saw):
Wishing all our readers and followers a very Happy Deepavali!!! From all of us at P.s. Don’t forget to save us some murukku & achi murukku yea…hehe
